    i dont mean it as an insult, but i really cant understand why johns wife can continue to be a republican after watching his shows.
    week after week he highlights right wing policies that harm, and still his wife thinks "ill vote for those guys"
    i couldnt respect some one who thought like that let alone marry them

    Trump supporters still don't care. They have a completely selfish mentality. So many of them defend this even though it hurts the most vulnerable in heir own party.

    I oppose any government interference in health care. Health care and health insurance should be entirely left to the people to decide for themselves as they see fit is a completely free market capitalist economy. I don't care is it's Obamacare or American Health Care Act; both are illegitimate government interferences in the economy.

    funny how they talk money when talking about the rich, but percentage with the poor! The reason the rich get richer is because it forces the poor and the rich to be held to the same standard I.e. 15% thus less "money" being taken from the rich compared to a 30% money tax. PAY ATTENTION.

    I often disagree with liberals, but they are SPOT-ON with regard to healthcare. The difference between medical treatment today and in the Founding Fathers' day is not like the difference between an automobile and a horse-drawn wagon, it's the difference between folk remedies and an MRI. This is a LIFE AND DEATH issue! We're not talking about the "right" to live in a McMansion or the "right" to own a cool TV----healthcare is not OPTIONAL! Fuck the Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, Randroids, etc. on this issue! Fuck them in the ear with a rusty scalpel! Stop sending these assholes to Washington, goddamnit!!!

    Why don't you cover the fact that the medical costs of our system are the problem not the laws determining who pays for it? We pay twice per capita what most other western countries do on healthcare under the Affordable Care Act and get less coverage out of it. Seems like we are all looking at the wrong problems here.

    If our system cost what most European countries cost full coverage for all would be a much easier sell.

    I think a good punishment for every middle class American that voted Trump/Republican is in order. Let them eat proverbial healthcare cake. Watch Trump take away healthcare, social security, livable wage, your internet privacy, meals on wheels, public school funding and everything else. Really put the hurt on the middle class who voted Trump/republican and let them feel the pain of thier vote. Maybe next time Bernie won't be such a crazy choice. Bernie 2020! give this country back to the middle class!

    To that stupid iPhone reference, I have to make this comment: I am a college graduate with 24 years' experience in my field of Public Works Administration; I hold 4 certifications in environmental regulations and municipal grants administration, and was selected as the Employee of the Year in 1998.  19 months ago, I was laid off from my position as Public Works Director of a small city in Central Florida.  Since then (probably due mostly to my age of 52), I have not been able to land a position in my field in my geographic area.  I've been working 2 jobs, one full time position as a substitute teacher, the other a part time spot selling parking spaces for a theme park.  I routinely work 45 or more days straight without a day off, and average about 55 - 60 hours per week.  Still, I can barely afford to live on the salaries I make, and it is a constant struggle to afford food and even gas to get to and from work.  I couldn't possibly afford an iPhone, and as a matter of fact, use a basic trac phone through a government program.  I have no health insurance, as neither of my jobs offers it, and I cannot even hope to afford it otherwise.  I am not alone.  Most poor people whom the far right-wingers would like to paint as lazy, irresponsible bums are in actuality hard working Americans who are working like hell just to stay alive.  The notion that we go around spending what little money we have on smart phones and other luxuries while ignoring health insurance is absurd, and a reprehensible assertion to make.  Sorry for the long post.

      But in the anyway, you have an american passport and therefore you are the man of the "first world". You don't need to get a VISA for visiting most counties in the world, because you was born in a right place and you have a rights. At the same time people from East Europe, Asia... need to collect evidences for an US embassy when applying for US VISA to prove that they have money for visit US, they don't want to illegaly stay in US etc. And this is discrimination too.

    How is your health insurance so damn high. $13,500 in credits for health insurance and you likely still pay something out of pocket for that insurance? For a person in Canada making $50K in Ontario their total federal and provincial taxes is about $8400. They would get full health coverage under that tax. Even if that person spent all their net income in that year the total taxes would be $13900 amusing everything they bought was taxable.
