Elizabeth Warren, was having a field day about the Labour nom...Can't really be looking out for the small people in the work force when you've built an empire out of squeezing the poorest folks and forcing the government to pay for all the things your lack of wages can't provide.

Why does this shed any light on the matter?

Trump has signed his first executive order aimed at the dismantling of Affordable Care. About 20 million people stand to lose the only health care coverage they have and can afford, something difficult to appreciate if you live in a country that has a national healthcare service.

No, it won't make a difference to you, nor to me (now), but it's very real to others. On BE it's just partisan sniping. In real life it's people unable to get basic health services or being bankrupted by hospital procedures or major illnesses.

And then there's climate change and the environment...

Healthcare has been a bane for many many years in the USA and you have had many administrations who have tried to fix it and failed. Some think the Obamacare was great others didn't and Trump says he has better ideas.
Does he well time will tell.
Its not that we are not sympathetic but its your country and you chose to to this to your own citizens. Canada adopted its system and it has its faults as well. how many Canadians go to the USA for treatment then the answer is thousands if not millions.

The UK has their NHS system again which has its own faults.
Does any country have a healthcare system without faults?
You can change it if you want and could have done it many years ago but you didn't. Ask yourselves why and remember you keep voting for the only 2 parties year after year.
So do we but it was essentially a leader from another party who was or is known as the founder of Canadian healthcare.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tommy_Douglas

You could also do the same on the environment and climate change but you are choosing not to.

I don't think anyone implied any healthcare system is without faults. Not the NHS, not the Canadian system, not any system.

However. it seems that the Americans apparently were hoping Obamacare would be perfect. After all, despite bringing care to 20 million people who previously couldn't afford anything, they plan to abolish it now, because it was "imperfect".

In truth, I think it's much less about perfectionism, and more likely about the unwarranted fear of communism if there is a functioning national healthcare system that serves the entire population. Better dead than red.
