McCain, while getting brain cancer treatment via his

July 20 2017 - While McCain himself never fully committed to
supporting the Republican bill, he remained critical of Obamacare and
just about any plan birthed entirely from one side of the political
spectrum.

As of December 1, 2017, I'm not aware of congressional action on
Affordable Care Act.

"As Congress looks to eliminate a major provision of Obamacare,
Coloradans are flocking to sign up for health insurance"

Unnecessary Tests and Treatment Explain Why Health Care Costs So Much

Experts estimate the U.S. health care system wastes $765 billion
annually-about a quarter of all the money thatÂ’s spent. Of that, an
estimated $210 billion goes to unnecessary or needlessly expensive
care, according to a 2012 report by the National Academy of Medicine.

This democracy has been pushed somewhat over the edge by things like "money
= free speech" and the equivalent, that have raised the price of getting
elected and therefore restricted government to all but the wealthiest.

Money talks, but as increases in "poor" population happen, US's
economy will tank.

Small Examples;

1.  Cable TV cord cutting
2.  Smartphone users slowly cutting broadband ISPs
3.  Decreased automobile sales
4.  Increased mass transit rider ship

The greedy wealthy can't have their cake, and eat it too. As people's
wages can't keep up with existing lifestyles, they will slowly cut
back on expenditures.
