    to counter all the foolish and false stories put out by Fox News and their pet Republicans.
    I cannot understand how any person with a conscience can be pushing for repeal of the ACA. I've spent over 40 years fighting for national health coverage, and I cried when I saw the vote in Congress that meant final passage of the ACA.
    Yes, the ACA is far from perfect. But the millions of people who will now have coverage, who will be able to get health care when they need it is what's most important. It will save lives, same families, save people from bankruptcy and ruin.

    While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.

      There are people whose social status is predicated they have someone under them.  

      That is why I despise their smug attitude of victim blaming.  

      ACA is a stepping stone to single payer.  I can't wait.  Vermont seems to be moving to single payer which will make them very competitive place to locate a business and everyone' favorite cheap exploited labor state, South Carolina won't be so cheap.
