I live in Idaho. Pardon my language, but why the f*ck would I want to shop for insurance from New York or Florida?

Also, I don't think Chaffetz understands how most people get a new iPhone. Most people don't buy the phone outright for the $800 or so that it costs. Most people lease the new device from their phone provider (like AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile) and pay a monthly fee for that lease, ie. that fee is tacked on to their monthly phone bill. Eventually, that fee is paid off within having to sign a new two-year service agreement.

Personally, I pay $47 a month for my health insurance (which doesn't include dental and vision; those are separate charges) but my employer foots the rest of it for $500.50 a month. My take home pay is $1313 a month and my monthly rent is $600. If my employer didn't pay for the majority of my health insurance there's no way I would even be able to have a roof over my head every month let alone consider being able to afford a new iPhone with monthly payments over two years.

Here's an idea: how about regulating and capping the fucking profits of medical goods/services!?! When you crunch the numbers, it costs a hospital about $35 per CT scan. They then charge $5000 to patients. It costs $5 or less for an IV, complete with bag, needle, and time for nurse to insert. Hospital charges patient $600+. You want a solution to the healthcare crisis? Cap healthcare profit at 100%. Problem is NOT in the insurance industry you damn idiots!!!!

"Nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated". How does anyone believe a word the turd sandwich named Donald Trump says? I do not get the allure. I think I'd rather stub my toe on the dining room table every morning than look at him again. But it's like a train wreck. Ya gotta look.

The fact republicans and the Trump administration don't want people to call it Trump-Care explains just how god awful this health care plan is.

Leave it to Trump, Ryan and the GOP to slap a deceptive cover on their heartless, fuck-all budget in a poorly planned attempt to rebrand Obamacare (itself rebranded from Romneycare), drive more profits to the top .01% and prove utter disdain for the poor.

Author Gail Garrett ( ago)
how about covering the other side of the coin. here in MA many, many entities (NON-PROFITS) are spending millions, wasting millions, all doing the same thing that the state is doing, it would undoubtedly be better for us to have single payer. I would happily pay my premium to the state. I am paying over 21000 for a family plan here in MA. People are working for health insurance. it is killing us. Please come and investigate THAT. Love your show!!! keep up the good work

Author kikiwest2001 ( ago)
I don't feel bad for any Trump voter who was on ACA aka Obama care. If this bill passes, you have only yourself to blame when you wont receive coverage or can't afford it.

Author Jamie Tyroler ( ago)
To all you non-Americans who don't understand America's health care system, don't feel bad, we don't understand it either. We pay more per capita for our health care than most, if not all, industrialized nations and we get worse results than most, if not all, industrialized nations. Trumpcare or Ryancare might possibly lower the per capita cost for healthcare, but it's going to be done by having much worse results.

Why does America provide healthcare like this? Private, for-profit health insurance companies that hate Obamacare because it restricts the amount that can be paid to executives. It seems that the insurance companies would like to keep jacking up their premiums while paying for fewer services while increasing their profits and personal incomes on the backs of the poorest Americans. It's kind of like the Monty Python sketches about Dennis Moore ("He steals from the poor and gives to the rich. Stupid bitch!" - except that the stupid bitches are the poor who keep voting to screw themselves over - often because of things like abortion or the belief that somehow, the lottery, elderly rich relative they don't know about, etc., they too will have to worry about estate taxes or the advantages of paying a 28% tax on their income over $500k instead of 35%, even though they're earning less than $25k/year).

I have severe Crohn's and need Remicade to function, otherwise, I'd die from infection when an abscess came up. I'm not even 18, and I think I need 3-4 vials. Each vial is easily above 4,000$, and I get my infusions every two months. With Obamacare, everything was covered. Somebody please give me advice on what I can do, this is frightening to me.

I think what the guy with the poodle hair was trying to say is maybe use your money more wisely when possible. Rather than get a new phone when you already have one that is fine take that money and put in an HSA or something. The proposed plan sucks balls by the way.

Apparently, the right wing nutjobs wanted the bill to leave absolutely NO middle class or poor person alive. As such the bill has been "tweeked" to be absolutely sadistically evil.

I've come to a point where some sentence trigger reflexive thoughts.

*dead/bored/disinterested look in Melania Trump's eyes* - "You spend ten years married to DJ Trump and let's see the look in your eyes." Come on, she signed on to be a rich man's wife, not for politics.

*That has never been done before!* - "_Yes_, and maybe with very good reason! Like I've never inserted an electric screwdriver into my body and I don't feel that I missed out on something."

*_You know what_, those silly people whose health benefits I just cut should just make better financial decisions; after all, they don't earn in two years what I earn in a month, which clearly shows how much cleverer I am* - "Let me just say a short but fervent prayer for one of them to make the decision to [[[[[[censored]]]]]] and [[[[[[even more censored]]]]]] you."

Btw to any single Western nation out there, believing the U.S. healthcare sys is not complicated & who thinks it's simple: Talk to us when your population nears 0.5Billion, has rampant poverty & a retiring Baby boomer workforce, innovative medical procedures, expensive medical schools, and a powerful lobbying branch to be reckoned with behind Big Pharma

Andre Rutkowski and Rick White ~ They can't call it "Republican Insurance Plan" or Trumpcare . They call it Obamacaew Light or Obamacare Phase 2 because they don't want themselves attachted to it. They'd rather try to associate it with Mr Obama in hopes that they can get people to subconsciously blame it on Obama.

What did we do before? Put it back to the way it was in the 60s stop giving tax credits. Government out of medical insurance and defund drug companies cut out half the shit they feed us. But nooo then we might survive. Deep state will be pissed depopulation full steam ahead‼️🇺🇸

Americans have allowed health care in the US to become nothing more than extortion and fraud. And they allow its politicians to claim the USA has the best health care in the world. Nothing could be further from the truth.

How the hell is the US the only western country without decent healthcare, how? even Obamacare or ACA was a affront to western society and way to expensive? how is military dominance more important than the health of your own population?

Author Paul Colburn ( ago)
Only a liberal nut would think that if we all get our taxes cut it means we're losing our money to the rich. So what if the rich get a tax cut of $197,000. Donald Trump paid 36 million in 2009 what's 200 grand?

Author Researcher Researching Research ( ago)
Here is a better idea for the Republicans, just shoot and kill the poor or older American citizens at this point. This way you can cut funding for all the programs that the government funds that the poor or elderly rely on. Their plan is essentially going to do the same thing, just more suffering.
I honestly can't understand why they just don't work with Democrats to edit/change the bad parts of ACA.

Author Gemnist ( ago)
Of course he gets it. It's why he made such a big deal about the POPULAR vote.

Author Will pkingidiots ( ago)
It's not taking money from the poor and giving it to the rich. It makes it so that the rich are not paying 100x more than any other person for the same thing.

All American should stop paying taxes and paying for the billionaires in office extravagant healthcare insurance while in office and it continues after they leave office. I wonder what plan Paul Ryan have?

Author Wermhats Wormhat ( ago)
These comments make me sad. I can't believe how many children are watching this British guy read Time Warner propaganda from a teleprompter. Seriously how did we get here, where a bunch of kids are living in this TV fake news bubble separated completely from reality? In real life, these stats his company payed to create don't hold up, it's ridiculous. I look forward to not paying my Obama inflicted "too poor to afford this shitty healthcare" taxes next year.

About Melania, that was hurtful. it's getting personal, huh!
