2. And we all know how much McConnell can be trusted.

As much as Trump can be trusted.

3. Of course they won't...

They donít need to, because SCOTUS will do it for them.

7. Now that they've removed mandate, drastically cut subsidies, allowed crummy plans to be sold, etc.

They've significantly wounded the program, and a lot of people have given it up.

Can't wait to see what we proposed (and that's assuming all Democrats fall in line, which didn't happen in 2010), and what GOPers try to do to it.

15. That is how I see it.

He is up for reelection in 2020 and republicans got the asses beat like a drum in midterms over Healthcare. He is trying to save his own ass and maybe a few more republicans.

16. yep, he wants to eliminate ACA as a future issue that hurts Repubs

Suggesting he has any real interest in health care is a complete joke.

9. They can't, the House won't let them. A meaningless statement from McConnel

10. Even if it was so, why the pivot? And where's the explanation, Mitch?

What the fuck changed?

Did your dumbed-down FOX-addicted constituents finally understand that ACA was a gift that you were trying to take from them? Now that Obama's been out of office for 2 years, hating Obamacare because they hate Obama isn't good enough anymore, is it?

Dems need to make these MOFOS eat their words. Make them own their slaughter of ACA. Rub it in their faces.

14. That is actually a true statement

But there is zero chance he will go along with any bill that actually fixes it.

I'll believe it when I see it--and even then, I'll doubt it's true!

13. Mitch. What a guy! Got his ass kicked. Now he is like a snake trying to crawl out of his skin.

Nice try Mitch, but nobody who has been paying attention the last 10 years is buying that. Nobody will buy it in 2020 either. Just like nobody believed your lies about wanting to keep protection for pre-existing conditions. You will wear health care around your neck for the rest of your political days.
