2. That's pretty shocking

Almost a tenth of the country becoming uninsured, right?

15. I don't know.

You are putting too much faith in the hands of Republican senators. If anything, they will make cosmetic changes and that will win over a few Dems in purple/red states.

I hope I am wrong, but I doubt it.

21. There is still a HUGE problem with BOTH current & proposd plans. People who work for a co.

that does NOT provide health care will still be priced out of the market. My son worked as a manager of aircraft maintenance, but not as a direct employee of the co., but a ::contractor". Unfortunately, That's the way lots of employers are doing it these days. He WAS making a decent salary ($23/hr.) but the best he could find through Obama care was $2,200/month! He could only afford to pay for that if he scrimped on EVERYTHING ELSE! That situation has not improved under the new plan at all! I know that was one of the reasons he voted for The Con.

THAT's INSANE! I say they go after the insurance co's. NOBODY is telling those guys "YOUR PRODUCT IS MORE THAN THE MAARKET WILL BEAR! GO BACK TO YOUR DRAWING BOARD AND TRY AGAIN!"

22. I think the money they pull out of the medical sector will drive a recession

The amount of medical infrastructure the ACA drove is being vastly underestimated by the GOP.
