    Yes, indeed.! Clyde ----the republican attempt to undo ObamaCare will be catastrophic!

    Here is a direct quote that Eye found from trump in my old files from a year ago. This is what the bald-faced liar called trump said....yet what he and his KKK cronies are pushing thru Congress is the exact opposite and trust me ---the fallout will be catastrophic, just as the hospitals predict...!

    In truth, he nor his KKK cronies care about the American people, their focus is to destroy Obamacare ---which was originally a Republican idea brought forth by Mitt Romney --a point brought to my attention by the knowledgeable and astute --- "Clyde Coger" :heart:

    President Obama made Mitt's idea bi-partisan...and from that point on stupid @#$ republicans have been chyt-ing bricks every since, LOL!
