So I agree with every one of these criticisms except for the medicare one. Barak Obama defied constitution when he put in place Obamacare, which did nothing to improve medical care but the cost went up almost 600%. The extra money just went to kickbacks and to Obama’s pocket. Trump has been trying to get rid of that for years now but congress refuses to let him.

"which did nothing to improve medical car" Except force companies to extend coverage to more people than ever and coverage for pre-existing conditions Etc

The republicans have been dismantling it from before it was passed and have sabotaged it every step of the way.

Regardless of what I think (or you think) if we live in the best country in the world we should have the best healthcare system in the world, and we simply do not. Repeal and replace it....fine....but it better be WAY BETTER than the ACA. And cheaper. As promised.

Ok, you are right about the new coverage, I hadn't read that before. But do you deny that Obama used it to vastly increase his wealth?

Can you explain how this happened? If you are/were unaware of the expanded coverage of the ACA, it's main point of existence and one of its main successes, I highly doubt you have valid info on how Obama "vastly increased his wealth" from it.

My valid information on it comes from simply googling Obama's net worth before and after the presidency, then subtracting the current value by 12 years of presidential salary and his other methods of making money. He currently has a worth of $40 million, minus a starting net worth of $3 million and minus his misc. funds (Selling books and public speaking ect.) and you are left with $20.5 million profit from Obama care.

How do you assume it's "Obamacare"? That's ludicrous. Bill Clinton is WAY richer after presidency too. Also GWB. They all make more money AFTER presidency.

oi dude that sounds insane, Obamacare does not produce royalties for anyone especially not Obama, what did he do, produce a patent for social healthcare or something? He's good but even that sounds nuts. Sorry I dunno how you people argue facts with bat shit crazy claims, its just destroys your whole argument.

Obamacare did in fact produce royalties. His net worth before his presidency was $3 million. After presidency is $40 million. $20.5 million of that came from the taxpayers through Obamacare.

I'm not talking about just passing a law, this one in particular violates constitutional law. In fact, when it was to be passed, the republicans unanimously voted against it but even 34 house democrats voted against it. The supreme court ruled it unconstitutional because constitution says that congress must simply regulate commerce, not order the people to engage in it. The constitution allows freedom of commerce, meaning if you don't want to engage in it, nobody can make you under penalty. But that is exactly what Obama did. Not only does that violate my freedom, but it violates law and gives congress disproportionate power.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that you are not bothered one bit by the breadth and depth of tRump corruption. Given that, and your negativity towards universal healthcare, you aren't so much concerned about violations of your 'freedom' and laws than you are about politics and other people's health.

Quit assuming, it's making you look bad. I am not a Trump supporter at all, I hate corruption regardless of who does it.

I’m sorry what did you not get about the house voting to pass it?
