Woman With Dying Husband Unloads On Tom Cotton At Town Hall Meeting

  • Added:  3 months ago
  • Tom Cotton is one of many Republicans who want to destroy the Affordable Care Act. And like many other Republicans, he decided to hold a town hall event in Arkansas to address the concerns of his constituents. But he never could have prepared himself for the anger that the crowd showed over the Republican plan to strip away health insurance, and one woman in particular stole the show by telling the story of her dying husband and asked Cotton what kind of insurance HE has. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

    Wow, a liberal demanding more government benefits for herself. Who knew? Sure convinced me. I'll now go out and work 80 hours a week for the rest of my life to fund her healthcare, because she's obviously a more worthy person than me, since I just work to get my own. Thank you for enlightening me, Ring of Fire.

I think it's time we start addressing other diseases like people have treated obesity for years, that if you did it to yourself, then that's your own fault, you want somebody else to pay for YOUR poor decisions?

    We can't have a National Health Service for all Americans
    because useless pointless US Health Insurance Corporations won't let
    it happen. They have bought their politicians and we're screwed. We
    have the most expensive per capita health care in the world yet are
    the only first world country to not have Universal Health Care. I
    paid no more out of my paycheck in England than here but here I have
    to spend $10,000 a year more paying
    Health Ins. Corporations and can still go bankrupt from med bills

    It's hard to feel sorry for these people. They across the board voted for the very people who campaigned (and Won) saying they would repeal and replace the ACA.....
    Now they are upset with those they voted for, for doing what they said they would do?
    Did they not understand what repeal meant?
    This is a great example of being careful of what you wish for......

    The ACA was a fraud from the very beginning. It did NOTHING to make healthcare or health insurance more affordable. It simply made health care and health insurance MORE expense and then paid a part of the premium for some folks. It is unsustainable financially and practically.

    The politicians give themselves raises nonstop, they give themselves three month vacations a year and give themselves the best insurance, I guess is time for all of us to become politicians. Since that is not possible the next best thing is to demand we get whatever they are getting. Only fair.

    ACA is faltering on its own anyway, trying to put blame on politicians who are trying to get rid of it, instead on those who let it pass is myopic. The ACA was nothing more than a shot of morphine or a necrotic limb, even if the ACA is left untouched, within a few more years it will crumble completely.
    Many states have already seen their healthcare marketplaces be reduced to one or two providers, the costs are hiking, coverage is still shrinking and even with the subsidies lots of people are still not being able to afford the out of pocket costs. ACA is seeing the same faith that Massachusetts's system under Papa Romney saw after a decade of its implementation. The ACA was written by the health insurance conglomerates in benefit of their profit margins, not of the end user . . . was it better than what we had before? Sure, but that is only for a period of time, just like morphine. The ACA is not for the long haul whatsoever.

    Singapore spends only 3% of GDP on healthcare but alls citizen are given (or mandated to buy) insurance which costs from US$3/mth US$75/mth, which covers all pre-existing condition. No idea why the US, which is also classified as a 'developed country', is experiencing such a big difficulty providing for something so basic.

    I was viewing this video and others and noticed that they use the same exact line: "you expect us to calm, cool, and collected." Who taught them that wording? The resulting crowd reaction was the same in the other townhall meetings. The congress people were not allowed to answer real questions. People die from health issues every single day. It is not the governments fault. Take care of your own person first by living healthy. (I am not healthy at the present time but I don't blame the government.) Blame Monsanto instead.

    Dear fellow Americans: Please have a look at the health insurance system in Germany, where I work as a physician: It is not perfect, but everyone is covered and all serious diseases (cancer, heart, etc) are always fully paid. You only have to move away from the thought that a people, where every healthy person also supports sick ones with a good government is socialism and people should always have a "free choice" (whether want to being insured or not).

    I'm from Arkansas came here during hurricane Katrina. the KKKonservatives have treated us horrible during Katrina. anyway, I have called that coward ass bitch Tom KKKotton's office to voice my complaint against him and the horrible job he's doing in Arkansas last year. plus I told his staff to tell KKKotton to stop taking money from white supremacy hate groups also. they gotten very angry with me. than on New Years day 2016 last year I get a package from, Fed-Ex. The deliver man looked at me very strange, I noticed that it wasn't a good package. so I have opened the package. in it KKKotton office was trying to threaten me saying that I have harassed, KKKotton (which was A big lie by the way!!!) and don't call or visit any of his offices. and the letter said if I do, call or visit. KKKotton will have me arrested by the capital police. I share the letter information with my friends on, Facebook. they all told me that, Tom KKKotton was trying to scare me. also, KKKotton office said that the only way I can communicate with him is through letter. so he can keep records of me if I insult him. he can say that I was harassing him. my friends on facebook quickly told me that it's against the law for him to tell a constitute to stop communicating with his/her representative. I even read that coward, Tom KKKotton have did this same thing before to a News journalist. had him arrested. because, KKKotton hated to hear anything negative about himself. I've been waiting a very long time to get. Tom KKKotton out of office permanently!!! Also, republican senator John Boozman he's just as bad as, Tom KKKotton. and I can't forget representative french Hill too... we need to get "ALL" the republiKLANS out of Arkansas permanently!!! it will be a little hard because the republiKLANS have gerrymandered themselves into a super majority by weakening the minorities political districts. which is a Civil Rights violation

    poor Americans want free or low cost health care while I work 12 hours a day as a concrete finisher and because I work I can't afford any health care and neither can my employer.  But they take $340.00 out of my pay check to pay for what.  There are many more people upset, way worse than her because there premiums doubles in 1 1/2 years, like my mother and father in law.  She don't want to confront Jim and me and her free health care that we pay for.  Nothing is free in this world and never will be.  Some one has to pay.  America is in bad trouble because to many people get free rides on the government.  Every one of those people in that room are fighting for something free while I am at work to put food on the table for my young family.   Let get pissed
