Every politician in the US (state & federal) should be forced to use whatever healthcare plan they roll out. I bet it would suddenly become a much better plan! Cut medicaid & disability fraud & we'd have more money for decent & affordable healthcare!

Do Ted Cruz's junk polices cover preparation H for the poor , those with preexisting or chronic health problems, as that may be the benefit they need the most with the repeal of the ACA.

Killing AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE for 10s of millions of Americans while funneling billions of tax dollars into the pockets of the wealthy is a perfect example of republican greed and corruption. Where is the "better care" part??? How is "BARE BONES CARE" a solution for anyone???!! Even the insurance cartel objects to this junk "insurance". "Better Care Reconciliation Act"? How about "Free Tax Dollars for the Wealthy Act" since health care has nothing to do with it.

In response to the ineptitude of our state "representatives", I am thoroughly sick of your "president" and your party. Your responsibility and your duty is to serve ALL the citizens of Arkansas. Not just the select crowd who voted for you! You are a representative of the people of Arkansas, NOT A SYCOPHANT FOR TRUMP!

Contact your congressman - tell them to JUST SAY NO to the health care scam!
