I don't know about you all but

I'm sick of this game I have to play every year with the AHC (Obamacare) . These insurance companies dropping out , changing plans , raising rates etc. Every year I have to start from scratch finding a plan that includes my wife's doctors , a hospital within hundreds of miles from home , covers the kind of care my wife requires . Looks like time to change doctors and insurers again. I'm freaking tired of it. SINGLE PAYER please ASAP. This is ridiculous.

I believe the Repukes watered down considerably what was a worthy beginning to build upon.

Vote straight ticket Dem & make the House productive again.

It is a hassle to deal with confirming your income then selecting a plan each year, yet have the plans change from the year before. I have yet to receive a tax credit letter/form from the IRS for my taxes for the last two years despite talking to an agent on the phone. I filed anyway without them.

I think its a good idea but the paperwork and insurance companies are turning it into a poor product.
