Hah! Another Zero Donat...

Edit: Am I feeding this troll?

I think we should keep him alive because he entertains me and provides inspiration. Am I being selfish?

You're not being selfish Jeff, you're being childish by running from decent debate. You can try the silent treatment if you like and I'll be happy to see it from you. You add nothing to the conversations most of the time. Thank dog Kaz left again because you and he turned into nothing but silly spam.

Welcome back burnsred. Just in time to discuss Trump's latest move which is predicted to lower your health care standing in the world even more.

Two issues, the outrageous cost compared to other countries, and the failure to cover all your country's people.

About the biggest issues that could be of importance to libertarians and will be ignored by pseudo-libertarians.

Yeah it sucks. Probably if rich Canadians weren't hogging up our health care services we could help people who never see a Doctor until they stumble (or are carried) into an E.R. somewhere.

Health Care is not declining in the US.  Because of Obamacare, Health Care has become too expensive for millions of Americans.

My family had fantastic health care plan for over 20 years with Kaiser Permanente.  Our plan was affordable - we "designed"  it to suit our needs. Best of all, we could modify the plan should the need arise.

Then along came Obamacare.  "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor."   A BIG FLICKING LIE.

Kaiser sent a notice that they would drop my family from Health care because our plan didn't meet minimum standards for the ACA.  They offered some "new" Plans, but all of them were way too expensive because they offered services and treatments that we didn't need, and would never use.

So we were forced to walk away from Health Care.  Thanks a bunch, Barack. You lying sack of ___t

Isn't what Trump's EO will do is bring the government into compliance with the law Congress passed by stopping the illegal subsidy payments?

That's right Jeff, only they weren't illegal. And more Americans go uninsured and lose their health care. Americans think it's worth it!

It will soon be some bad that even Canadian millionaires will stay home. Sad

The Supreme Court said they were, but Obama kept paying them anyway. Congress shrugged... By that time, they knew Obama didn't pay much attention to the laws Congress passed anyway.

Have you noticed that all the nasty illegal things Obama did, Trump continues to do, only more so?

Now Trump decides for once to follow the law, and regressives throw tantrums and lie about what's going on.

Nothing new there.
