When will Republicans stop wanting to defund healthcare for Americans?

Update:

and Why is it Republican love citing the Constitution in cases when its to prevent Government from serving the will of the people and helping the people, but yet just as many times look on as their far right wing politicians trample the Constitution and brazenly state that the whole idea of the country has nothing to do with representative of the people government?

    Get out and dust off your copy of our Constitution.  Reread the very first paragraph.  Notice the word “Welfare” in there?   In the very first paragraph.....

    Republicans idea is that if there no Medicare, no unemployment insurance, no food stamps, no housing assistance, then there is more money they can give their corporate handlers.

    Let me introduce you to a clause in the 5th amendment of the constitution, "...nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation." Which means that the government cannot take anyone's property without paying them.

    This includes intellectual property. Which is what a doctor owns.

    So, the government cannot simply "give" a hospital's, a nurse's, a doctor's, or any other healthcare professional's property without compensating them for it. Which leads to this question. How in the world do you buy someone's property out of their brain and how much would it be worth?

    Plus, we can't own someone else's knowledge or production because that would be equivalent to slavery, and is illegal according to the 13th amendment.

    So, since the ENTIRE healthcare industry is someone's property that the government cannot own, that entire industry isn't a right for you, or any other citizen, to have. It is a private business like everything else.

    Which also means that the government cannot even compete in that business either. The government is not allowed to even be in business at all. It is not even allowed to create the equipment it uses for the military complex it's allowed to have. Every bullet, uniform, plane or ship has to, legally, be produced by private industry.

    So, what we're left with is ONLY one thing government can do. The 16th amendment allows the government to levy income taxes on citizens. They could, if they wanted to, simply tax us and then simply pay for healthcare. Which, not even the most liberal Democrat is willing to do. The ramifications of that would be a disaster of Biblical proportions.

    Finally, getting back to your ignorant question. There was NEVER any funding for healthcare. ACA was nothing more than a set of government regulations for healthcare insurance. It was put in place to force people with existing insurance to pay more to subsidize people who didn't have insurance. Which was stupid because all it did was force everyone's insurance costs up. Which is why you didn't hear insurance companies fighting against the bill. They knew the government was simply handing them GIANT, unearned, profits.

    Republicans understood the stupidity of it, and didn't want to do that to the American public. It was nothing but a big money grab by the Democrats and the insurance industry.

    Obamacare is welfare's old name . republicans might not like it but he explained 

    and said it's to make the young pay for the old because welfare is broke over it .

    Seems Like a good plan if from the start but too late for monkey wrench .

    The real reason is hospitals . they are as detrimental as banks to the feds

    Not sure what you are talking about.  Healthcare is paid for as a service by the patient.  Most patients purchase insurance to help pay for their healthcare.  Healthcare is not "funded" by anyone; we do not have a socialist healthcare system.

    We'd love to have healthcare for all Americans through prosperity and low rates, but Dems don't want that. They want a welfare class and poverty and government over the whole thing. 

    Why would they want that? Because "programs" are a way to funnel and launder billions of tax payer dollars.

    The republican method doesn't bag any loot at all.

    They see conservatives as morons who are trying to pass on a cash cow for, ew, human prosperity. When the cow is fat and ready for slaughter!...

    You see...democrats have completely forgotten what the role of government is. And was intended to be.

    We watch democrat politician after democrat politician become outrageously wealthy in our government, yet never completely connect the dots.... Why, IDK. It's right there in front of your face. Like a big neon sign screaming " Corruption!", and you just ignore it.

    They just tell you it's because "we care" about people and you just are like, "Well I like that!"
