I’m suffering from Permanent Trump Distress Syndrome™ after learning that I’m no longer with Her and that She left me with another man. Namely, The Don. This all seems like a bad remake of a 1970’s mob movie only worse because the 1970’s mob movie was actually based on reality.
This is all so depressing that I went to see my local psychoanalyst at The Doc’s Bar and Grill, who prescribed an anti-depressant for me that tastes remarkably like 21 year old single malt scotch whiskey. But all trials are opportunities to learn and I’ve certainly learned how much I like 21 year old single malt scotch whiskey.
As you can all see, I’m still wearing my military uniform which I swore I would not remove until our dear MTE was ensconced on the throne. I’m holding out for 2020. There is still a chance, comrades. And as a fully integrated soldier of The Résistance™, I intend to resist all attempts to convince me that The Don is actually president. He’s not MY president.
But I digress.
Which brings me to the Health Deform Pill the fascist Republicans are attempting to make us swallow.
They are proposing to lower premiums by allowing “Health Insurance” companies to offer cheap policies that don’t cover anything, have huge deductibles and fine you if you get sick.
I know this is true because I had a prophetic dream about it.
Individual policies will be $44/month with $100 doctor visit co-pays, $10,000 deductibles and a 25% fine for each claim you make if you get sick which will pay for the free health care for all of the rich Wall Street Republican donors.
We can’t let them do this to us, comrades. If we don’t resist, how will we ever be able to afford to accommodate the unions?
Viva la Résistance!

Looks like Amis are already better Health-Socialists than EUSSR :
(it's of 2010, that is: certainly not the result of Comrade Messiah's Magic Wand & ACA.)
To see e.g. here (written by highly competent Avik Roy).
In any case, I have word that the UN World Health Organization (WHO) is drawing up plans to take Obamacare global, thus mitigating the effects of Obamacare being trumped by Trump.
Word is, the who's who of WHO are very excited at the prospect of forcing healthy nations to pay for the health
I'm sure it will work just as well as Obamacare has.
