    Trump actually said that originally, and everybody just laughed at him.

    So is Trump lashing out at McConnell, because Trump is a big child who can't stand to be laughed at or proved wrong? He has an ego problem and I think he has not learned how adults deal with disappointment. Possibly due in part to a cushy life.

    Not to mention this is only happening in certain counties. It is not a national problem.

    The insurer will still offer "catastrophic plans," which can be purchased outside the state's exchange and are only available to consumers under 30 years old or with a low income.
    Which if the Republicans had their way would be all that would be available to you.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
