The government should have stayed out of the health insurance business. I say this as a veteran with exposure to a single payer system. When you have a country like Sweden (6 million people) or Canada (36 million people) that have populations with mostly strong work ethic, single payer works reasonably well, abet with much higher tax rate than Americans are use to. Now introduce cultures where work ethic might not be so strong, and costs escalate. This is now occurring in places like Germany and France. In the USA, less than half (157 million of 320 million) are in the workforce. You can't have less than half the population support the greater portion of the population, and themselves.
What the senate did was a travesty. We have a failing heath insurance, not care, that's imploding (Obama care). Notice you don't see any reporting on emergency room use. That's because it's still high, Obama Care didn't fix it. If you had a policy that you couldn't afford to use, copay/high deductibles, you would go to the emergency room too.
Now here we are again. This time it's not about giving Trump a black eye. The senate republicans are starting to worry that their years of promise were a lie, and they are going to get called on it. This is self-preservation and the RINO's realize it's going to fall on them not Trump. Now Lindsay Graham is scrambling to do damage control, and even his 'self-righteous' buddy John McCain, after his last political stunt, is even on board. Still no guarantee of passing RINO's Collins and Murkowski won't sign, and neither will Rand Paul, a man of principle to be sure, but he couldn't sell any alternative to the rest of them either.
