Repeal and replace

The Democrats are going berserk over the proposed insurance bill. You'd almost, if you'd been asleep for 8 years, think anything had improved for the poor and low income during the Obama reign. The poverty rate in 1983 was 12.8% and in 2015 was 13.5%. We have 123 wealth transfer programs, 83 of which overlap. The ACA was collapsing in 2016 so Democrats could reach their goal--make way for single payer, so the federal government could control more of our lives. Meanwhile millions went without any insurance or lost theirs. The ACA took away peoples' choices for doctors and networks and encouraged others to just pay a fine until they needed it, which if you were poor, would be the smart thing to do.
