Trump Thinks He Can Take Credit For Obamacare Now 14.1.2020 Crooks Liars
Mini Mike Bloomberg is spending a lot of money on False Advertising. I was the person who saved Pre-Existing Conditions in your Healthcare, you have it now, while at the same time winning the fight to rid you of the expensive, unfair and very unpopular Individual Mandate.....

I’m sure you all remember what it was like before the ACA. Insurance companies could deny insurance to anyone with a medical condition.

Universal coverage, single-payer, ‘Medicare for All’: What does it all mean for you? 8.1.2020 Raw Story
