Another attempt by the GOP to shove through an ACA repeal, with nothing to replace it with. Turning it over to the states won't have much affect on the wealthier states, but will decimate the poorer "Red" states who largely voted for Trump and his accomplices. Essentially the GOP is killing off their base.

The proposal to offer Red states bigger block grants is nothing more than a carrot in front of the cart. The fallout from those who lose coverage after states raise premiums and charge more for those with pre-existing conditions make the grants a short-term simplistic fix for a long-term complex situation.

The states with populations that would be hurt most by such a scheme aren’t California and New York, but cash-strapped, smaller, mostly-rural states or Rust Belt states that decided to expand Medicaid, often in order to meet extraordinary statewide health crises. These states are not liberal bastions Graham claims are favored by Obamacare; rather these states—Louisiana, Arkansas, Arizona, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Maine, Iowa, Alaska, New Mexico, North Dakota, West Virginia, and Montana—are largely dominated by Republicans, and make up a large swathe of the party’s geographic base.

The dear lady tried again today. Alas, she still was unable to donate $500. From gofundme:

Oh, this is expert trolling. You know he wants to yell at her for being a stupid woman but he can't risk losing that money. I wonder when he'll ask her to just donate 5 bucks 100 times?

OK. Intelligence and evidence leaves this argument. What nonsense. Is that all you got? In all respect, get a life, OK? Quit being obsessed with "Star Wars" or such fiction. Move out of your parents' basement and quit playing those violent video games you think makes you some "hero." Live for real. Put away your PlayStation or whatever gaming console you waste your time in fiction doing. Life isn't a game. Is that too much to ask? I am being more than fair.

Looks like we got another Casio here.  ::)

Get a job, OK? You can't be any more wrong, but I suppose the stress of living in your parents' basement and sitting behind your keyboard being real is too much when your Dad tells you again to look for a job. And your poor Mom. She tried, but maybe that's why your parents are divorced? All her son does is sit around playing video games. He's lost. Fair enough?

Can't be anymore wrong?! Such eloquence! As for the rest of it I guess you're recounting your life story to us?!  ??? ::) ;D

You just provided me with a quote of that gay poster with the anti-conspiracy theory agenda. I've never heard the episode. I don't like Wells anyway but this guy's argument couldn't be a more closeted homosexual cry for help. Just come out already, buddy!  :D

You could have just said "Yes. As a matter of fact I am".

And I bet John B. Wells University Football team could beat yours. If you went to one.

The whole ''guy from Pittsburgh'' thing is just plain stupid.  It makes no sense.  He's not from Pittsburgh, doesn't live there, never goes there, doesn't talk about it, and certainly isn't the image of a big, tough, hard working, beer drinking steel worker - just the opposite.  Yet he starts out every video with it, and says it with such conviction.

For all the sense it makes, he may as well start his vidoes saying he's the internet's dumb guy.     
I think it was a case of "If you can't eat'em, join 'em" when something is relatively harmless (slthough his character reputation is starting to sound iffy.)

As a guest, he didn't have a show. He's undeniably entertaining in small doses. Maybe not so much these days, it's got a bit old.
Being a 'local boy done good' I have a soft-spot for Alex. He was great in the past on local level and still is sometimes good. But I agree that he needs to be done in doses and all of the infomercial stuff is tiring. Still I'm amazed at his success and his smarts of realizing how to capitalize on "free" platforms and build what is a mini-media empire that now makes international news and causes much consternation in the Hollywood/Infotainment "news" crowd and leftist politicians. The guy started out as a ranter on free local cable access tv after all.

It looks like Marge didn't come through with her donation. You can't trust anyone these days.
