  • benshapiro Oh no. How dare an incoming President ensure that his citizens have basic insurance!

  • CantStumpTrump1 benshapiro because then it'd essentially be the same thing as Obamacare. You're forgetting that conservatives aren't big

  • Jeremy Bowyer (jeremy_bowyer)

    IsabelleAliciaa CantStumpTrump1 benshapiro Hey now, some of us are pretty big. Granted I'm still cultivating mass but still...

  • jeremy_bowyer CantStumpTrump1 benshapiro I did a two part tweet

  • Me (ThisPlaceToxic)

    benshapiro Yeah!? Guess he doesn't realize we think forcing people to get insurance is socialism.

  • Brian (FendersBenderz)

    ThisPlaceToxic benshapiro We're not able to drive without car insurance.

  • Me (ThisPlaceToxic)

    FendersBenderz benshapiro Driving is a privilege, not a right.

  • Brian (FendersBenderz)

    ThisPlaceToxic benshapiro Touche!

  • benshapiro when are you going to realize he's not actually conservative, Ben?

  • Kevin Meyer (KCchemguy)

    tylermgriffith benshapiro Just a teensy guess, but I'm guessing that Ben already knows.

  • KCchemguy benshapiro his tweet implies he's surprised. so maybe he still thinks donny is a "teensy" bit conservative

  • Kevin Meyer (KCchemguy)

    tylermgriffith benshapiro If you've followed him much, the "Oh" response is basically an "I told you so".

  • Sterling (MoreCredible)

    KCchemguy tylermgriffith benshapiro You new to twitter, buddy? Or atleast have followed Ben for longer than 15 minutes?

  • MoreCredible KCchemguy benshapiro enlighten me, twitterpro

    tylermgriffith KCchemguy benshapiro Not gonna go tweet for tweet but you can start here: link

  • benshapiro OH? What's the matter Ben--never heard of Medicare? It's been around for a while now. Google it. Cover people SHORT on cash.

  • T64Pamela Conservatives don't see expanding welfare as an inherently good thing. Yes, even when Republicans are doing it.

  • Jimbo (jimmybo50)

    WarriorJoshua7 T64Pamela so what happens to people who can't afford insurance? Die on the streets?

  • jimmybo50 WarriorJoshua7 Ummmm. Medicare.

  • Jimbo (jimmybo50)

    T64Pamela WarriorJoshua7 what if you're under 65?

  • jimmybo50 WarriorJoshua7 If you are poor, you qualify for medicare. Google it. If you are not poor, buy competitive insurance or get a job

  • Jimbo (jimmybo50)

    T64Pamela WarriorJoshua7 you're thinking of it. Many ppl earn too much for Medicaid but still can't afford insurance.

  • jimmybo50 WarriorJoshua7 Health Insurance is NOT a civil right. Work hard, Pay for stuff. if you are poor, we will help you.

    carlyjake BillKristol washingtonpost You're correct. Health insurance is not a right. Healthcare, however, is. #HealthCareForAll #ACA

  • Carlyjake (carlyjake)

    seanaolson BillKristol washingtonpost So are ice cream sandwiches a right? Healthcare is a commodity. You have the right to buy it.

  • Sean Olson-Roy (seanaolson)

    carlyjake BillKristol washingtonpost No, like water. Why else would ERs be required to treat you?

  • Carlyjake (carlyjake)

    seanaolson BillKristol washingtonpost ER's treat critical, bill government, refer to county, lose money, due to regulations, not choice.

  • Thanatos (Thanatosyletus)

    krheinrich67 BillKristol washingtonpost well... ACA is expensive in many ways it shouldn't... Should be easy to replace

  • cleetus (krheinrich67)

    Thanatosyletus BillKristol washingtonpost if it was easy they would have done it, unless they just wanted to deny Obama credit for it

  • cleetus (krheinrich67)

    Thanatosyletus BillKristol washingtonpost DT has uphill battle against GOP congress. They won't spend the $$$, and govt shouldn't pay

  • cleetus (krheinrich67)

    Thanatosyletus BillKristol washingtonpost even more money for it. Otherwise might as well keep ACA.

  • cleetus (krheinrich67)

    Thanatosyletus BillKristol washingtonpost so if you want it cheaper for consumer, then govt has to subsidize more. A no-go for GOP

  • BearNJ (jimbearNJ)

    BillKristol benshapiro So glad the Trumpbots gave us Trump to stop Hillary so Trump could institute Hillary's policies.
