They were about eliminating the extra taxes the rich had to pay so that the poor could afford healthcare. That's what it's still about, and the Senate is now going to move towards just eliminating the ACA without replacing it with anything, just to give the rich a tax cut. ...[text shortened]... ot afford the medicine they need to live.

See, this is where you're vulnerable.
Obamacare is imploding. It is unaffordable. It was not a law that was ever designed to produce good; it's a propaganda tool. Somehow, Democrats managed to convince their constituents that they got something they never received. It was based on lies (like-doctor-keep, like-health-plan-keep), and passed in the middle of the night without ever having been read. (Well if you want to know what's in it, you have to pass it first."😉
You all have such a credibility gap to fill with us. The divide is yours to bridge. You have one hell of a lot of guilt to own up to before we'll ever talk to you seriously again. After all the laws your Barry broke, and all the laws his appointees broke - I'll tell you what, I have never, ever voted for a President that has won an election - but at least our side tries one day a week to operate on principle. For you it's all about power and sanctimony. So, guess what, special snowflakes - we're not going to let you "fundamentally transform" America like Barack Hussein Barry Soetoro, the Indonesian Muslim student that received foreign aid wanted to do. I think we'll keep our Constitution, thank you very much, and go ahead and try to take it away.
