    You people hating on this bill saying that people are gonna die as a result are so childish and melodramatic. Patients weren't dying from a lack of healthcare 10, 15, 20 years ago before Obamacare was rammed down our throats. The lazy and the poor are gonna do what they did before they were handed subsidies: go to the hospital where they can't be refused treatment.

    Except this doesn't work which is why the insurance exists.

    You might as well wish for a magic health unicorn that cures all disease. It's equally as possible.

    I'm not sure what you think you just showed here, but well, you didn't. It's kind of sad if you think any of that conveyed a right to healthcare.

    Nearly 45,000 annual deaths are associated with lack of health insurance, according to a new study published online today by the American Journal of Public Health.

    The study found a 40 percent increased risk of death among the uninsured. As expected, death rates were also higher for males (37 percent increase), current or former smokers (102 percent and 42 percent increases), people who said that their health was fair or poor (126 percent increase), and those who examining physicians said were in fair or poor health (222 percent increase).

    I'd bet anything you were one of those people screaming about death panels 7-8 years ago.

    Obamacare was debated in Congress for over a year before it passed. Yeah, it was really "rammed down our throats" unlike this latest bill that just passed in the House

    It bankrupted the living **** out of the uninsured, caused ERs to shut down and hospitals to turn for profit.

    All of your arguments are void of merit until the people who voted on this bill have to abide by it like everybody else. But I suppose that don't matter to you.

    I'm so glad we save all this money so 5 year old Jimmy with leukemia can have fun with insurers the rest of his life if he survives.

    Hey, the insurance companies were really hurting because of ACA... heck, Aetna struggled to make only $2.9B in profits last year. Trump and the republicans had to cut low income, elderly, women, and children's insurance so that the insurance companies could increase their profitability.

    Lets see what fellow "alt-left" senators think of that:
