TrumpCare died in the House. HouseCare died entering the Senate. RepublicanCare never made it out of the Senate. Calling it TrumpCare blames Trump for its condition which isn't right.

TrumpEraCare maybe?

If without Obama, we would probably not have Obamacare,

Without Trump, Trumpcare would not have made it as far as it did.

What is the inconsistency.

True, it is Trump(era)Care. What Trump submitted to the house was one page and maybe 127 words. That was TrumpCare. What came out of the House had considerably more details. What the Senate will do with it has yet to be determined.

What the Senate creates is hidden from us so we can't evaluate it. True, they can't tell us what is in it until it gets finished, but the concern is that they won't show it in time for us to evaluate it.

So it leaves 10% of the people without coverage because it is too expensive. The young and healthy and the rich get coverage, leaving out those who need medical coverage the most.

So if the Republican version is dead how about just modifying ObamaCare? What would you change?

The individual mandate that requires everybody to buy health care? We are required to buy auto insurance for the good of us all. What is wrong with requiring everybody to take care of themselves?

If the healthy masses do not pay into health care it becomes prohibitive in cost to others. But is asking them to pay more so others can benefit the right thing to do? Eventually they will be on the other side of this scale.

There is no "care" in any of these plans because insurance does not equate to affordable health care.

Now there is a good point.
