My other question is Cory, are you a Globalist or are you an American? It seems like much of our government is attacking us from within? Where do you stand Cory? I voted for you in the primaries, then in the elections but when I went to the polls, I was told I was a Republican and couldn't vote for Bernie Sanders. I want to know what you are doing to correct our corrupted voting system? I think we should get rid of George Soros machines. Oh, and does he support you?
All the ppl saying "why should I pay for other ppl?" or "now ppl will be lazier and not work for healthcare". 1 - Well I don't want to pay for your roads you drive on in your neighborhood, I don't want to have to pay for the fire dept because your house is on fire and not mine... Oh wait, we all use the fire dept and roads? Well damn we all need healthcare too... 2 - Just be a decent human being. Guarantee many of these people commenting negatively go to church on Sundays to worship a dude who said to feed the poor and heal the sick... So yeah if you consider yourself "christian" and you don't want to pay for other ppl's healthcare you might want to take a good long look in the mirror. Does Obamacare need to be fixed? Yes, yes it does. The bill was flawed from the start, the 180+ amendments made to it didn't help at all. Needs bipartisan fixing with real impactful modifications, not just Democrat vs GOP dick measuring contest on who can get the most stuff added or taken out. Healthcare for all works in other countries. Yes it has its issues in other countries, ppl always bring up Canada... how about bringing up one of the European Union countries where its pretty well hammered out and working?
Funny, Bernie voted against universal care when the Clintons tried in 1993. Wanted to leave it to the States
Why are people commenting that "we're the only Western country that doesn't have single payer"? I wish people would do more research for themselves instead of being parrots.
Go ask a Canadian how quickly they can get specialist care. Go ask someone from the UK how easy it is to get prescribed an MRI. No, the current system isn't perfect. Yes, we need reform in how the market works. Single payer is NOT the answer. Show me a monopolistic system where costs have gone down and innovation has increased. Ill wait.
Increased competition and choice is always better. Just because other countries do something doesn't mean its the right thing for this country. We've always blazed our own path, why do we suddenly want to settle for making the same mistakes as others???
Everybody knows this bill is completely doomed in a republican Congress. Everybody.What you need to ask yourself is why a republican-controlled congress let it come to the floor. They don't let anything else come to the floor proposed by democrats. The answer is simple enough. The bill is just a litmus test for Bernie to divide the Democrats in the 2020 election. If you vote no on it you fail his purity test. If senators in swing States vote Yes on it they're tarred with the brush of higher taxes in the general elections they face.This DOA bill is a no-win for Democrats and a win-win for republicans
But Cory, what's the transition plan to go from for profit businesses to not for profit industries?
With all due respect Senator Booker, I think this is a mistake. I have Medicare at the moment and it is not optimal insurance. Democrats need to be considerably smarter about the future of healthcare. Please make improvements to the ACA instead. Democratic energy needs to go into this instead. Please don't ride the Bernie Sanders wave any longer.
ObamaCare healthcare is still in play. DACA, that 2 year hallway pass with no pathway to citizenship ever is ending in 6 months. Congress who's job it is to make law, passed no law for Dreamers in 25 years let alone a pathway to citizenship. You've got 6-months remaining to write law. And you chose to rehash health care after ObamaCare remains? Poor use of your time and resources. The clock is ticking.
I think it's because the Democrats fucked up really bad and now you're desperate to regain the progressives trust.
senator obstructionist booker.. how do we pay for this?? making the working people pay more tax $$$$$$$$$$$$!!!!! please resign.....
