Quote:"By a final vote of 51-48, the Senate approved a measure which calls for eliminating key elements of the Affordable Care Act in a manner not subject to a Democratic filibuster."

"Democrats know this is a train they can't stop. As the night drew to a close, all they could do was stage a protest."

This after Trump finally called out the drug companies yesterday and sent stocks tumbling.

It's about time for both a repeal and a replacement of this tax masquerading as health-care.
That legislative overreach has decimated the American economy and the middle class.
The biggest single obstacle to real health-care, aside from insurance companies, is the elephant in the room very few talk about... DRUG PRICES!
Trump is not bought and paid for by big pharma like Obama, the Clintons, John McCain and all the other big pharma protein shake drinking RINO's and Dems.

Quote:The industry is “getting away with murder,” Trump said in his first press conference since he was elected, sending pharma stocks plunging.

“Pharma. Pharma has a lot of lobbies, a lot of lobbyists, a lot of power,” he said, making the industry the latest target of his frequent attacks on business since the November election which have included the auto and aerospace industries.

He's not making any friends at the drug companies for sure, and you're right Adde
- Pharmaceutical companies got an ass kicking yesterday.
The above article stated Mylan fell 2.5 percent, Pfizer dropped 2.0 percent, and Bristol-Myers declined 3.9 percent.

The only individuals that engage in it are extremely wealthy.

Thanks a lot, Trump...

Now the cost of meds will go up...

Blowbamacare needs to go. My brother in law has it. He had to go to the ER a few days ago. Extreme pain, diarrhea and nausea for days and other symptoms. They have no idea what it was. They have to run tests and such but Blowbamacare wouldn't pay for him to be admitted.

A friend at work was telling me just yesterday that a friend of his is a bartender at two bars and often brags about making $300 + per night in tips but doesn't claim any of it or pay taxes on it. Now she despises Trump because he is taking away her free Blowbamacare. She is making more in a night or two than most people make a week and we are paying for her health care. ƒück her and ƒück Obama. Get rid of that shït.

There is no real winning ever.
Until they unstack the deck, there's no point in playing.

Until America reigns in the price of pharmaceuticals, as we do in Europe, the cost of health care shall continue to rise.
