Woman With Dying Husband Unloads On Tom Cotton At Town Hall Meeting - The Ring Of Fire

  • Published on Feb 23, 2017
  • Tom Cotton is one of many Republicans who want to destroy the Affordable Care Act. And like many other Republicans, he decided to hold a town hall event in Arkansas to address the concerns of his constituents. But he never could have prepared himself for the anger that the crowd showed over the Republican plan to strip away health insurance, and one woman in particular stole the show by telling the story of her dying husband and asked Cotton what kind of insurance HE has. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

      This is a pointless emotional appeal. No, your dying husband doesn't matter. It's not the government's job to keep her husband alive. It never has been. You don't get to steal from people to keep yourself alive.

    Lol well, i would not have answered her question of what kind of insurance i have either. It's none of her business. I would have intentionally disregarded every statement and question she posed, as a demonstration that she does not matter. As for meeting and actually talking with her one on one? Lol c'mon. You meet with your equals, not with minions, varmint. Let's repeal this ACA.

    No matter if you like Obama or not...he passed the Healthcare Act because he cares about the American people....also while his mother was very sick and dying...she was fighting with insurance companies...which is very sad. Dying of cancer and fighting for healthcare..

    Sad Days in America, Obamacare is hurting lots of people and it is the democrats route to socialism and where will the money come from to take care of everyone and when the country is bankrupt what will you do for healthcare, or anything else. if the government is controlling your healthcare then they will be controlling all of your life, for me I don't want them controlling my life. check with people in other countries that have socialized medicine and look what happened to them My sister a working nurse works everyday in severe pain and due to the high copays and deductibles she cant afford to have the back surgery she needs and it doesn't pay for her doctor visits or medications, Obamacare has affected every ones life in one way or another which is not very good for anyone and the insurance companies are all bailing out because they are losing money or should I say not making any money. You talk about putting everyone on Medicaid, ask the Governor how long the money would last to provide healthcare for everyone in Tennessee. I understand that people are upset but there has to be another way that will be good for everyone so all can have good quality healthcare. And if any of you did not vote for Cotton to be your senator, then how can you say he works for you if he wasn't your choice and you didn't vote for him?

    Sit your ass down lady…, no amount of body insurance is going to save your sinful life, and more important, safe save your soul. You have given up your freedom for a little security and benefits and have abandoned faith in God.
    Luke 22:25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.
    You bunch of taxpayer whores who think you can bully you way across everyone’s life to include the life God has given me and my family. I can careless if you have insurance but when you make it mandatory, you have crossed the line. My body belongs to God and not man. 1 Corinthians 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
    The only reason they make it Mandatory is because you cowards need other people’s hardship to leech of off and Tax the right to Exist? What? The right to Exist… think about it, moron, everybody born now needs to pay a taxpayer whore tax in order for your existence … Why do you think they recommended at the end of the 911 commission report to fund and make sure everyone gets into the MARK of the Beast system at birth in all hospitals using SS#?
    We banished you Hitler’s a long time ago and can do it again… Can’t wait till your NWO master’s stick a chip in your ass and breed you like livestock.
    Revelation 13:16
    16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
    It has begun…

    I have a lifelong friend of mine that just recently died of cancer that was only 44 years old. At one time he was a conservative. He could not afford healthcare. He had found several lumps in his chest area but could not get any treatment because he didn't have health insurance. This went on for about 4 years and there was nothing he could do about it. After Obamacare came out he was finally able to go to his primary care physician, who in turn referred him to an oncologist and made the determination that he had cancer. After that he pretty much overnight became a liberal. If he could have gotten the healthcare that he so desperately needed there is a very good chance that he would be alive right now. I'm not going to say that there aren't things that he couldn't have done to make it easier on his body. (such as losing weight) but I can understand his reasoning to why he changed over. I'm not going to sit here and say that Obamacare is perfect, or even good for that matter, But I will say that for him it was too much, too little, too late in the end.

    Indiana Senator Todd Young !
    Senator Young R-In. is so worried about getting slammed at town hall meetings, that he just stopped having them at all. Senator Young will not meet with the very people who elected him in his home state.
    Now Senator Young only meets small business groups that support his policies and applaud for him.
    Isn't that special?

    Matthew 7:15
    “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”
    James 2:14-26
    “14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”

    She should pay for her own health care. And not expect her neighbors to pay for her. Medicare, Medicaid, and Socialists Security are all Ponzi schemes by created by democrats to control the people. Socialism never has worked and never will work.Create a true free market of health care and it will be affordable to everyone rich and poor. Doctors, pharmacies, drug companies, providers and Insurance companies do not want change. Because real free market change would cut into their wealth.. They want to keep the status quo.

    The host of this video was, Tom Cotton UNDERSTANDS, he just doesn't care. Thirty to forty MILLION people without medical insurance is collateral damage to him. He does not CARE. His only regret is that he can placate his audience without admitting he will repeal the Affordable Care Act.

    VERY WELL SAID. I must say, I am a Canadian addicted to U.S. new. I ask myself, Why doe's the Strongest, most advanced Country in the world, not have Universal Health Care? Does it cost more? Yes, I do pay a bit more on my taxes, in the same breath, the more you make the more you pay in taxes. Which balances the cost. Low income or the homeless have free coverage. We take care of everyone!
    Will I standby and watch someone in pain not be treated because he/she has no health care? Not a chance! We have the medical personal available to us 24/7, 365 days a year The cost is just a few more dollars in income tax.I personally would ask my Representative to go to the many Countries with Universal Health Care and see how it's done.I see the Insurance Companies making a bundle doing it in the way it's done in the U.S. I have watch many of the candidates over many years, of all the candidates I have seen, I personally think that Bernie Sanders is the only one that gets it. Who you have as President doesn't matter ( unless he beaks the law ) IT'S THE PERSON REPRESENTING YOU THAT MATTERS.
    Do I agree with the politicians in this country? I believe I feel as the Americans do.We trust that they will represent us the best way possible. Be the people and Country we all used to turn to and respect. The current administration is slowly but surely pushing your allies away. God bless the U.S.A. Just my thoughts.

    ACA is faltering on its own anyway, trying to put blame on politicians who are trying to get rid of it, instead on those who let it pass is myopic. The ACA was nothing more than a shot of morphine or a necrotic limb, even if the ACA is left untouched, within a few more years it will crumble completely.
    Many states have already seen their healthcare marketplaces be reduced to one or two providers, the costs are hiking, coverage is still shrinking and even with the subsidies lots of people are still not being able to afford the out of pocket costs. ACA is seeing the same faith that Massachusetts's system under Papa Romney saw after a decade of its implementation. The ACA was written by the health insurance conglomerates in benefit of their profit margins, not of the end user . . . was it better than what we had before? Sure, but that is only for a period of time, just like morphine. The ACA is not for the long haul whatsoever.

    Singapore spends only 3% of GDP on healthcare but alls citizen are given (or mandated to buy) insurance which costs from US$3/mth US$75/mth, which covers all pre-existing condition. No idea why the US, which is also classified as a 'developed country', is experiencing such a big difficulty providing for something so basic.
