Half of the country doesn't know what's in it.

"Obama's devastating America. The policies put in place and those that are gonna be put in place are gonna do even more damage. I mean, it's serious what he's doing. Did you see this? The IRS announced that the family health care premium, once Obamacare is implemented, is $20,000 a year. You were told your premium was gonna go down $2,500 a year! The average family premium is going to be $20,000 a year. I guarantee you, people didn't vote for that." - Rush Limbaugh

"You can use the [Barack] Obama administration as a recent example. For seven years they've been unopposed. The Republican Party's not trying to stop 'em on a single thing.

"I work with Kick G.A.M.E., the grassroots artist movement.

So the ideal types are like the American system on the one hand or the Scandinavian or U.K. systems on the other end. Germany tries to combine the advantages." - Karl Lauterbach

It happened on a piece of paper... when we created the first-ever packaged pricing plan for cardiovascular surgical procedures." - Denton Cooley

"I think Donald Trump does want a result. He clearly, in the meeting that we had was trying to sort of push the process along, realizing that the Senate has a role to play and that there are differences of opinion. I think he wants it to be a health care plan, proposal that we can go out there and defend and that he can defend and argue for to the American people." - John Thune

"I think one of the lessons we should have learned from what's happened with the current plan is that there is insurance coverage, but there is not really, many times, access to health care.

"Donald Trump refused to outline a health care plan. And they just kind of moved on, instead of pressing him on it. He gave a ridiculous answer on the national debt.

So, I think there's a weird bias here in the media rooting for Donald Trump, because they know he's the easiest Republican to beat." - Marco Rubio

"I have no plan except to take care of the people I love." - Bob Saget

"Health care for everybody, by making it illegal not to have health care. It's so simple, why didn't we think of this before?" - Tim Slagle
