    “Millions are losing their jobs and health care at a rate never before seen in American history,” he said. “[President Trump’s] response? Block HealthCare.gov from enrolling people who desperately need insurance during a pandemic.”

    ‘The height of callousness and irresponsibility’

    Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) didn’t hold back his opinion on the matter either.

    “This decision is the height of callousness and irresponsibility,” he said in a statement. “We’re in the midst of a global pandemic and people need health care coverage, yet the president is denying people access to it.”

    For those who have experienced a qualifying event, they automatically are able to enroll in coverage. But for individuals who have been uninsured and now want health coverage, they can only obtain it through open enrollment.

    “The Affordable Care Act was created for this very purpose — so that individuals without health insurance could get affordable, quality coverage,” Booker said. “At a time when our health care system is already under enormous strain, it makes no sense to willingly allow even more individuals to go without coverage.”

  • That motherfucker. Well, he wishes he was a daughter-fucker. Just as *millions* of Americans are about to lose their fucking jobs and therefore their fucking insurance... he refuses an open-enrollment period.


    And Ya'll know why. It's because he values money and power over human life. But ya'll knew that :thumbsup


    Oh, and not just unborn baby-cells that you folks give a rat's ass about *only* to the extent that women can be controlled. No, Tiny hands values wealth and power over living, breathing, sentient and VOTING human life.


    But ya'll knew that :trumped


    And now all those Good Christians are gonna know that. Ya'll want national unity? You're gonna get it :blowme


    Your nasty, self-loathing ideology is about to get flushed down the toilet of history. Don't worry tho- you'll be remembered :)

    Now... how might this have gone had ya'll *not* chosen to elect an obvious piece of shit?

  • And how many of the confirmed cases were sent home to recover because they were not serous?


    And anyone that needs health care can get it, just go to the hospital. If they don't have insurance or cash they can set up payments. In some cases the debt will be forgiven.


    So stop with the negative waves.

    You do understand that medical debt can't be bankrupted? Don't you?


    Can you also understand that if somebody is on a ventilator for a week, that bill could easily get into six figures.


    We're in the process of an economic crash *at least* as bad as the 2008 crash- many say it'll be worse. How many people are going to be able to pay off a six figure debt... without a job. Have you seen the projections for unemployment?


    You'll know on Friday. Now go search frantically around Breitbart. You won't find it there, but the Friday jobs report is going to be *historically bad*.


    Does Trump still own the economy? Or is this, once again, everybody else's fault except His Orangeness?

  • Well you have to give china some credit for the economy.


    But this virus hit at the prefect time to disrupt the economy. And the panic that followed fed by the liberals to interfere with the election.

    Do you really think two million people in America are going to die?

    Do you really think that less than 100,000 Americans are going to die?


    And why are you questioning the Trumpian Federal Government's numbers anyway? Isn't Trump the goddamn president?

  • TWAT needs to work harder at this. I'd at least need to see a cunt before watching more of this self-indulging cum show.

    There is no public health system in the United States, in short, because the richest nation in the world has no capacity to protect the public as a whole, apart from national defense. Ad-hoc remedies such as House Democrats and the White House fashioned on Friday are better than nothing, but they don't come close to filling this void.

  • The USA is not rich, we are $22 trillion in debt and growing daily. One reason for the debt is that we have to maintain a military big enough to protect all the poor little countries from something.

    Those days may be coming to an end. When China comes here to invade we just offer to let them take Mexico and Canada and we stand down. Maybe even offer to help.

  • You are mostly in debt with yourselves... Pensions, social security etc.


    Foreign debt is a relatively minor part of the whole.

  • That would be awesome... Sign up for insurance on your way into the hospital, cancel it on the way out. Twat just solved the healthcare crisis.

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S. Lewis

  • Yeah, because nurses and doctors don't need to get paid... They're like soldiers that way...

  • no one is going to get turned away just because they don't have insurance. I heard that no one will be charged for the treatment related to the virus.


    Haven't heard of anyone getting a bill yet.
