Since When Is Not Forcing Millions To Buy Health Insurance A Bad Thing?

The good news is, the CBO scored Republicans Obamacare repeal and reported it would cut the deficit by $337 billion in ten years.  And the good news is, it will do so while liberating tens of millions of America from buying insurance they don’t want.

Let’s Name A Deli Sandwich After The ‘Showman’ Prosecutor And Be Done With Him
