Sanders and Cruz debate healthcare

Did anyone else watch the debate?

Here is a snip. It can all be found on the YouTube

https://youtu.be/yPVkqlkT_S0

My favorite part is when Teddy gets comrade sanders to admit that he,
O-bomber and the rest all lied about the Un Afordable Care Act.
Thanks from caconservative

Didn't Obimbo tell us the number uninsured was 30-million? Sanders increases it to 48-million and then tells us that only 28-million are now uninsured? Who's lying, Obimbo or Sanders? And, if it is 30-million, wouldn't that 28-million number show us what a failure the ACA is?

The number of uninsured is lower than at any time that numbers have been kept.
That was the goal, mission accomplished, in spite of obstruction.

Do you believe that denying health care to people is a good way to balance budgets?

The number of uninsured is not at its lowest. Being forced to buy insurance that the majority of lower income enrollees cannot use because of prohibitive out of pocket expenses, does not constitute being insured other than in the non-applicable academic sense. With just this one dynamic sans the other failed dynamics, Obamacare is an unmitigated failure.

eNews is reporting that the question from the lady with MS was a CNN planted question. If you look at the picture, the woman is clearly ready from a "this is your question" form. I find it very interesting.

honestly I think this "debate" was a waste of time. It probably just led to more polarization. Basically you have a couple could have beens, bantering about for no reason. I get it that there was some zingers and points made, but to what end?

You can count on Jimmy to Lie, it's a lie, he knows it's not true and he's trying to deceive people.

So under the Republican plan, how many people will be covered?

Oh, that's right, it's only been 8 years, they haven't had time to come up with that plan yet.
But they set a deadline, I think it was January 27, they must have meant a different year.

Now don't faint dead away, Cokie, but for once, I agree with you. What a waste of air. Two extremists debating something that may or may not happen....because they can? Entertaining? Yes. Instructive? Maybe. Waste of time? Totally.

Fifty-two percent of Obamacare enrollees can afford $100 per month for premiums. Sixteen percent can afford $200 per month for premiums. Eleven percent can afford $300 for premiums. Twenty percent can afford more than $300 for premiums.

The average out of pocket expense to use Obamacare is $6,000.

Lower income users are forced onto Medicaid even though they had regular insurance. All Medicaid expenses are recouped by the state after death.

It is first grade level math to determine that most Obamacare users cannot afford to use it.
