Jadean McConnell Hopper they love messing with people's lives. but in the end when they meet their maker they will be quite shocked at what happens then.
Tom Bower I keep telling you Trumpsters that y'all forgot about Paul Ryan and the rest of congress. Trump's promises don't mean shit. Got friends or family on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security? They're fucked.
Jennifer Gilkerson I'm not sure he knows what Medicaid is or who received benefits. Someone just put those words in his mouth. He comments he really believes in nothing.
Sharon Allen The Unaffordable Care Act---Trump's legacy! The only good thing about this health care plan is that a lot of morons who keep voting for Republicans will die. The sad thing is that many innocent people will also die. Trump has brought on a war against the majority of Americans without firing a single shot.
Diana Pressley With a proven history of unscrupulous behaviors, why would any rational human being believe anything that this Con Man says?
Herb Hyde I made my call and urge everyone out there who are against this horrific bill aimed at attacking health care for the elderly, nursing home care, children and the disabled.It is time for real Americans to stand up and keep this country great, not destroy it in order to give more tax breaks for the super rich who don't need them...God Bless this country before its to late.
Roger Kouchi Trump Lies Trump lies. He is at war with the TRUTH because he wants to delegitimize the media so his supporters will stop believing the press and only believe the lies (alternative facts) that the Trump team is spouting. Be informed. Be Alert. Beware. Stay strong my friends. Speak out against injustice, inequality, tyranny, BS (alternative facts). Get involved (... even if it is only a few hours a week). Share the truth. We have an obligation and duty to speak out. RESIST. He attacks those who criticize him over his odd behavior and relationship with Russia, a country that already has been confirmed to have meddled in the elections and helped him win. Yet, instead of trying to alleviate valid American concerns even by his own party, he attacks people with a voice that sounds like that of a troubled teenager. Trump’s logic is puzzling but what’s clear is his inferiority complex to the former president. Trump has a crazy obsession with wanting to be loved and he knows how people felt about Obama. However, he will never come close to being like Obama and he knows this fact. Trump has a specific strategy to avoid accountability: Big lie, double down on the lie, deny the lie, if caught in the lie, blame someone else for the lie, tell more lies until people forget what the first lie was, and then claim that words don't matter, therefor you never lied and the people saying you lied are really the liars - This is how you get Trumped. Robert Reich Here’s how Trump turns lies into nearly acceptable truth. Step 1: Trump lies. Step 2: Experts contradict him, saying his claim is baseless and false. The media report that the claim is false. Step 3: Trump blasts the experts and condemns the media for being “dishonest.” Step 4: Trump repeats the lie in tweets and speeches. He asserts that "many people" say he's right. Step 5: The mainstream media start to describe the lie as a “disputed fact." Step 6: Trump repeats the lie in tweets, interviews, and speeches. His surrogates repeat it on Fox News and in the right-wing blogosphere. Step 7: The mainstream media begin to describe Trump’s lie as a "controversy." Step 8: Polls show a growing number of Americans (including most Republicans) believe Trump’s lie to be true. Step 9: The media start describing Trump’s lie as "a claim that reflects a partisan divide in America,” and is “found to be true by many.” Step 10: The public is confused and disoriented about what the facts are. Trump wins. Robert Reich As we enter the 4th bizarre week of Trump’s presidency, we are faced with lies that aren’t just embellishments of fact. They're the opposites of truth. Just 3 examples from last week: --- Trump insists that Judge Neil Gorsuch, his nominee for the Supreme Court, did not describe Trump’s attacks on a federal judges as “disheartening” and “demoralizing” (even though it was corroborated by three witnesses). --- Trump declares that the “murder rate in our country is the highest it’s been in 45 to 47 years,” when, despite some recent troubling spikes in certain cities, it’s nationally near a low not seen since the late 1960s. --- Trump tells a group of senators that he lost New Hampshire last November because “thousands of Massachusetts residents were bused to the neighboring state to cast ballots” against him, when there’s not one iota of evidence for that ever happening. What should we do with these lies? 1. Call them lies, not “controversies” or “factual disputes.” 2. Rebut them with the truth, and spread the truth. 3. The press should insist that each lie be retracted. 4. When Trump or a surrogate repeats the lies in press conferences, journalists should back up their colleagues with repeated follow-ups, and not move on to another question. 5. Interviewers with Trump or his surrogates should bring up the lies, provide the facts, and ask them to explain the inconsistencies. 6. The press, senators, others in public life must not be afraid of calling the president a liar to his face if he persists. What do you think? However, do not despair. RESIST. Find the time (... even if it is only a couple hours a week) to get involved: (1) Find the truth. Get informed. (2) Contact members of Congress and say: NO to hate; No to Trump's executive orders; No to tyranny. (3) Form sister districts (www.sisterdistrict.com). (4) Look ahead. Speak out and organize for future elections. (5) Read George Orwell's book, "1984." It appears that Trump is using it as his playbook along with Mein Kompf. "The power of the people is MORE powerful than the people in power. This is your country. This is my country.” WE the people! RESIST. Peace and love.
Michael William Lumbert You know what, these people don't know nothing about health care. I went to emergency and I was there for 10 min. 550 dollars. 120 dollars for 1 antibiotic and 1vicodine. That's the shit that's Wong with healthcare.
Charlie Bruno The proposed Healthcare law does no such thing. It does not touch Medicaid for seven years and by then it'll be overturned.
Mike Sikkema Wow. What a convincing meme. For you older folks, a meme is a picture that has words overlayed on it. The words aren't what's actually been said, but they are added to make a particular point. Usually it's just preaching to a very angry choir.
Ernest Kaip Thank god Osama Bin Obama never lied....you can keep your doctor ,health care will be affordable, ask Arizona where their rates went up 115%
Don Dodge what ever happened to trump saying many times at his heil hitler rallies "i will not cut medicaid"??? or "everyone will have great health care"??? and now doing the exact opposite. reverse robinhood. take from the poor and give what is taken from them to billionaires. disgusting. they will all have to answer to god for what they are doing to the poor, sick, and elderly. and i hope and pray it is sooner than later.
Craig Costa This is just a bald-faced lie that the media and the Democrats are putting out there. 90% of people on Obamacare are receiving government subsidies it's not sustainable.
Christina Debowski Trump did not put this bill together. All the old guard asshat republicans like lyin Ryan did. Blame the right jackasses 🙄☹️
Norma Merrill Granderson Duckworth God there is no place or no future troubled enough for you , your gang of thieves and fanatic followers. If karma was only real.
Stephen Ralph Oates From someone on a site that I follow: Next time someone starts in with that "Crooked DEMOCRATS" crap , show them This. "I learned something important and am sharing it. Feel free to copy and paste so others can learn "non-alternative facts", i.e. the Truth. Shared from Williams Adkins: I made a comment recently where I claimed that Republican administrations had been much more criminally corrupt over the last 50 plus years than the Democrats. I was challenged (dared actually) to prove it. So I did a bit of research and when I say a bit I mean it didn't take long and there is no comparison. When comparing criminal indictments of those serving in the executive branch of presidential administrations it's so lopsided as to be ridiculous. Yet all I ever hear is how corrupt the Democrats are. So why don't we break it down by president and the numbers. Obama - 8yrs in office. zero criminal indictments, zero convictions and zero prison sentences. so the next time somebody describes the Obama administration as "scandal free" they aren't speaking wishfully, they're simply telling the truth. Bush, George W. - 8yrs in office. 16 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 9 prison sentences. Clinton - 8yrs in office. 2 criminal indictments. one conviction. one prison sentence. that's right nearly 8yrs of investigations. tens of millions spent and 30yrs of claiming them the most corrupt ever and there was exactly one person convicted of a crime. Bush, George H. W. - 4yrs in office. one indictment. one conviction. one prison sentence. Reagan - 8yrs in office. 26 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 8 prison sentences. Carter - 4yrs in office. one indictment. zero convictions and zero prison sentences. Ford - 4yrs in office. one indictment and one conviction. one prison sentence. Nixon - 6yrs in office. 76 criminal indictments. 55 convictions. 15 prison sentences. Johnson - 5yrs in office. zero indictments. zero convictions. zero prison sentences. So, let’s see where that leaves us. in the last 53 years Democrats have been in office for 25 of those years while Republicans held it for 28. in their 25yrs in office Democrats had a total of three executive branch officials indicted with one conviction and one prison sentence. that's one whole executive branch official convicted of a crime in two and a half decades of Democrat leadership. In the 28yrs that Republicans have held office over the last 53yrs they have had a total of(a drum roll would be more than appropriate), 120 criminal indictments of executive branch officials. 89 criminal convictions and 34 prison sentences handed down. That's more prison sentences than years in office since 1968 for Republicans. If you want to count articles of impeachment as indictments (they aren't really but we can count them as an action), both sides get one more. However, Clinton wasn't found guilty while Nixon resigned and was pardoned by Ford. so those only serve to make Republicans look even worse. With everything going on with Trump and his people right now, it's a safe bet Republicans are gonna be padding their numbers a bit real soon. So let's just go over the numbers one more time shall we. 120 indictments for Republicans. 89 convictions and 34 prison sentences. Those aren't "feelings" or "alternate facts" those are simply the stats by the numbers. Republicans are, and have been for my entire lifetime, the most criminally corrupt party to hold the office of the presidency." So those are the actual numbers. Feel free to copy and paste!
Louise Bruce If this had to do with them, their parents or their children, they would be singing a different tune. It is clear that McConnell, Ryan and the better part of the GOP are sick, dirty rotten bastards who care nothing about their constituency or the country. As for Trump, the only thing he cares about is his wallet.
Vivian Nelson Gassan Everything that came out of his mouth was a lie to manipulate willfully ignorant people and it worked!!!!
Betsy Benefield Can't reach them cause of high call volume, I hope many will reach them, can't call back too much, shame, they should have a call back, it seems that they don't care, wish there was another way
Ann Troy Someone has to wrench control of this country from these thieving barbarians!
Joseph Natole how do you all feel now . it's ok you avenged Bengazi , and showed the ' darkies " whose boss , NOW LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE WHO TRUSTED THIS SMALL HANDED , SMALL MINDED bunko artist YOU GOT IT RIGHT IN THE bUTTOCKS LOL

Sharon Argabright So this is how Trump(thanks to his supporters) Makes America Great Again. 😂😂😂 What a con job.....
Barry Elaxra Any Senator who votes for the bill should be mandated to have this health insurance for themselves and family!!
Mary Hunt This what comes from watching too much tv. A reality tv celebrity was elected potus. 💩
