Yeah, and where's the replacement plan you promised would be concurrent with repeal? All these stubborn jerks care about is getting rid of anything Obama did..not helping the American people.

Idiots, you don't repeal something without something to replace it!!! Look at the smirk on his face. I would love to slap it off his ridiculous face.

He was genuinely shocked to be receiving this unexpected honor. That's what I think makes it the most beautiful. His humble reaction

Lest everyone forget that our government officials receive lifetime medical benefits for FREE even after they've vacated office. If anyone thinks these jokers give a hoot about the"American People" think again, the ACA doesn't affect them either way, they could care less. Sad, scary times are afoot for us folks.

This stupid people don't realize that we have children with special needs that can die without insurance! I have a Daugther with type 1 diabetes that needs her insulin 24 hours a day just be alive!

Here's an idea: all members of Congress lose their health insurance upon repeal of ACA. They'll get their health insurance back when ACA has been replaced.

The Affordable Care Act was a life-saver for a family member who lost his job and health insurance. Then when he was able to get a new job and employer sponsored insurance, and withdrew from"Obamacare", he discovered that he was required to pay back the prior subsidy...when he didn't have a job, as if his new job would make up for all the lost wages. The Act had many positives but this loophole actually encourages people to remain under-employed.

Now everyone wants to know what the replacement plan is knowing very well there isn't one, my question is why do you people vote for the republicans? Why did yo think it was going happen??

You people that voted for Trump are getting exactly what you voted for and deserve. It wasn't like he lied, doing what he said he would and you still voted for him!

Middle of the night government. .hoping no one pays attention to repealing the ACA This is what is going to happen..Rates will sky rocket with no checks in place...people with pre existing conditions will be kicked out of any plan. The ACA is not the reason for high Healthcare costs. Our carriers are raising premiums because they can no longer disqualify people with pre-existing conditions. Carriers want healthy, young people who typically only use their insurance 2-3 times per year for wellness checks only. My job was corporate utilization review. If a prospective business had employees who showed high usage of their previous plan then we gave them a higher premium. Individuals applying for policies are required to submit their medical records to determine if they have any illnesses. Most, if not all carriers WERE rejecting people on certain types of drugs, before the ACA. Hospital charges have been high for decades. Why? Because people with no insurance go to the ER when they're sick & those unpaid fees are passed down to people who do have insurance. Why do you think we have $12 hospital aspirin. Just wait..their next move will be to deny emergency room hospital care to anyone without coverage. ..then the real price of electing Trump will be quantified by the number of bodies stacking up at the morgue.

Look at that smug face! There is nothing in place for the nearly 30,000,000 people who will be without Obamacare! Republicans couldn't stand this healthcare because it has President Obama's name attached to it!

How about starting with taking away the biggest tax ever for the American people who happen to have had stinking house payments and car payments! Banks won't really let you out of because you are already obligated to pay! I'm sorry mr banker- I can't pay for my house anymore bc I have to purchase health insurance at a ridiculously priced amount with an 8 grand deductible.

When did not wanting the government to wipe for you become deplorable? My family needed insurance so I got a job that offered insurance. Then I went ahead and showed up and kept it for 17 years. Crazy, right?

A few people loathe Obamacare thoughtfully. They rail illegal on the grounds that they don't think the legislature ought to constrain individuals to purchase medical coverage and punish them in the event that they don't. ...

Obamacare is not free human services for needy individuals like Canada has. It's a fix on the private US human services framework. It made a few changes like making it illicit for organizations to deny individuals scope for prior conditions, and made yearly tops and lifetime tops on scope unlawful too. It likewise disposed of calamitous arrangements that fundamentally did nothing.
