  1. Let the public decide , not just Barr. Real " exoneration " will come with knowledge & facts. Or , a real problem. Let the people 👀 and determine.

  2. John Barrasso is a coward…
    John Barrasso is a trumpanzie…
    John Barrasso is a traitor, by propping up a traitor… by covering for a traitor, for allowing a traitor…
    We all heard, we all saw Helsinki… This man is a traitor for not standing against the trump… I do not care it has thoughts.

  3. It is not a question of eliminating health care insurance. That only matters to insurance company profits, and campaign coffers. It is actually an issue of providing health care for all.

  4. I am a recovering republican voter, i.e. now an independent voter because of the recent republican leadership, or lack thereof. I must admit I found him the most honest, professional and easy-to-listen to republican I’ve heard in several/many many years.

  5. Sky rocketing healthcare costs can be controlled and millions saved the misery of living with diabetes if this doctor's message gets out. Gradually this new approach is beginning to make headway against the roadblock of vested interests who want to keep you sick.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=da1vvigy5tQ&t=1s Life changing information.

  6. Interesting that Barrasso doesn't answer the questions. Hmmmm, seems like after 10 years they have NOTHING.

  7. Only one that wants Mueller under a bus is Trump. There are thousands of pages besides the 400 recap. All of it should go to Congress un-redacted.

  8. When he is still seeking business from Russia, In Russia with Russia money. And that's not considered a conflict of interest? Please enough with defending Trump. He will sell his mother if a bucks involved.

  9. Tweak Obama care, what is the problem the name? Obama already said change the name, tweak it and call it Trump care. No more talk, action. You've had control of bother branches for 6 years and the Senate longer. All talk.

  10. Tweak Obama care, what is the problem the name? Obama already said change the name, tweak it and call it Trump care. No more talk, action. You've had control of bother branches for 6 years and the Senate longer. All talk.

  11. SEN BARRASSO IS OBVIOUS DODGING ALL THE QUESTIONS. HIS LOYALTY IS TO TRUMP AND NOT TO AMERICA'S CONSTITUTION AND THE RULE OF LAW !

    THIS KIND OF SENATOR SHOULD BE UNSEATED IN HIS NEXT RE-ELECTION.

    HE OBVIOUSLY DON'T SERVE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

  12. As a rule, when Trump supporters are asked to explain or defend something that Trump has done, or said, they should always first ask themselves, what if Obama did it? I have no doubt, that there would be a pandemic of spontaneous combustion of the heads of Trump supporters across the country.

  13. Senator Barrasso, the headlines were nothing more than "Iran Contra" Barr's yapping. We have not seen the Mueller Report. We know nothing more than we did two weeks ago. Mueller must walk into the House and give Nadler the authentic Mueller report. Until then, we know nothing.

  14. Barrasso, the thing you did in this video is to spew the party line and avoid giving real answers to health care. Just another Trumpian republican robot 🤖.

  15. Just listening to how Republican'ts talk just proves that they are hypocrites and afraid of things in this report.

  16. Since it was not a crime Trump asked for the Russians to hack us, is it a crime if the democrats ask another country to help them? It's not longer a crime so…

  17. No surprising that Trump kept his business going. Not surprising that he lied about it. His MO is that he lies but, evidently, the financing for the project, was from a sanctioned Russian bank.
    Google: Trump’s Moscow Partner Was Apparently Financed by a Russian Bank Under US Sanctions (motherjones )
    Why would dropping sanctions on Russia for interfering in our election improve relations. It wouldn't.

  18. Cowardice is Barrosso’s middle name, he belongs to a pillar of government (Senate) that keeps the others pillars (Executive and Judicial) in check, which they have not, and only serve to rubber stamp Trump’s agenda

  19. Man dude. Just tell the truth, don't worry about offending the liar. Satan is the father of lies. We are called to Truth.

  20. …he answered absolutely nothing! It's a shame that these are the people that are running the country. Yes, his wife has breast cancer. What if we removed her insurance temporarily until we come up with a better solution? That's what they are asking the American people to accept. Americans have stopped thinking themselves and allowed politicians to be their voice. Politicians with the agenda of the rich and not the people.

  21. Whenever Republicans are asked about Trump turning to health care, they pivot to saying that they won’t be able to do anything because of Pelosi even though they have no plan.

  22. medical care for all is a "great threat to our freedom". Yeah, we need to keep people attached to their jobs with a ball and chain. What a bag of hot air.

  23. Muller isn't gonna convince anyone against Trump apparently, report or no report. There are many Africans that see Trump as racist but are also surprised at the length his opponents will go to destroy him. America is now a boiling cauldron of hate and division and their news media love it so. No one wins at the end.

  24. Yeah the Republicans have a plan he says. Yet the public has never even heard it. These Trump cronies just want to throw people off of their health care without a valid replacement. sad.

  25. Chuck got B slapped on his own show !!!!! OBAMA CARE WAD A KIND THOUGHT THAT WAS A HIDDEN TAX ON THE CITIZENS OF AMERICA !!!!! THANKS OBAMA FOR NOTHING .

  26. I trust Mueller. I do not trust Barr or Trump or John Barrasso or any republican in the United States. Crooks trying and failing to protect other crooks is a (R) modus operandi.
    Lindsey Graham is a chihuahua, not a pit bull. What a joke. Medicare for all is a real plan and I defy John Barrasso to show me a line for Medicare patients. He has no clue if there are lines, I have never encountered any lines after eight years on Medicare. BERNIE 2020 because we have way too many people like this failure at manhood already.

  27. If he really voted Wyoming's way he'd have to vote to somehow be sure the oil and coal companies make a profit off of the medical industry. That's nearly all that Wyoming is about. Since the Republican party can be bought, it is the influence that was chosen by big energy for the state. He has no choice but to squirm for them.

  28. This guy is incapable of giving a straight answer. Twelve years of working on an alternative plan and he's got nothing. That result would get anyone else fired from the job.

  29. Republicans don’t seem to talk about the fact that Trump was not exonerated as to whether or not he obstructed justice.

  30. It may have been appropriate for Trump, a business man, to do business with Russia while he campaigned for the presidency. My question is…why did he lie about it?

  31. If the report was total exoneration then it would have been released to congress by now. Adam Schiff for president 2020.

  32. You need to stop putting Republicans on your show…they don't answer the questions. They are are all worthless.

  33. How can he say democrats want to eliminate insurance for 160 million Americans when their plan literally covers all of those people

  34. I believe that if President Trump relies apon the few Medical Doctors like Dr. Barrassco, Rand Paul, and a few Democrat Medical Professionals, and include a Budget Expert, and leave the rank and file Politicians along with McConnell, and Pelosi, then we will get a Health Plan that is constructed by Professionals who know Health Care better then other Politicians, and the Media who hype, and Lie to the American People, just like they have done with the Meuler Report.

  35. Deadbeat Republican from a deadbeat state. Wyoming contributes WHAT exactly to the nation? Sit down, shut up, and let the smart people run things for a change.

  36. Americans pay more for healthcare than any other country, including industrialized countries with single payer healthcare. So how would single payer be more expensive?

  37. Epic fails. Democrats are failures. Election fail. FBI Directors fired. Clinton illegally pardoned. Impeachment fail. Coup fail. Drain the FBI. Drain Congress. Put Clinton on trial. Clinton is a national security threat. ACA is a health insurance industry scam against America and cost Democrats to lose power for lying about it. Congress failed to build a wall for 50 years it protected the illegal drug and slave industry. When there is no justice for one there is no justice for all.. Clinton, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Smollett..

  38. barrasso is a incompetent senior offical in trumpty dumbty's regime ,, add it to the list of incompetent officials the LIAR in chief has ,,, LOCK HIM UP ,, LOCK HIS CRIMINAL FAMILY UP ,,

  39. I’m Australian. I live in Australia. We have Medicare for all. Free health. If you rock up to a hospital it’s free. You can have private health insurance if you choose. Just pay for it annually. America is so behind for a developed country. The mind boggles!

  40. Are you watching this: the interviewer has to explain the questions to the Senator. He is so tied to canned answers that he can't give his own statements. That is sad!

  41. I get better healthcare in Mexico! Capitalism in healthcare isn't moral and isn't aligned with American values.

  42. Republicans want nothing more than for this to go away. They are trying everything they can to get people to move on. Outright attacking people who question what is clearly collusion, corruption, and attacks on the democratic institutions of America.
    Lets remember, not only did Trump and his associates have various immoral, corrupt contacts with Russian intelligence, they tried to hide all of it, and sought to obtain and withhold data stolen by Russian intelligence from other Americans. Not just the DNC, but Bannon and Manafort had stolen data from voter rolls and Facebook. Trump tried to discredit his own intelligence agencies, the justice department, and everyone who could see and hear what was clearly going on. And let's not forget, Trump actually tried to bribe Putin during the campaign. This doesn't even begin to cover all the corruption. It has gotten worse since he took office. Open contradiction of American interests in support of Putin. Selling foreign policy and attempting to transfer nuclear tech to the Saudis. Corruption of numerous departments of government. Outright attacks on Americans in need of disaster relief. It goes on and on and on. This is the deepest corruption ever seen in an American administration, by far. It is also a complete betrayal of the country.

  43. Barrasso …..
    Is he the best that Wyoming can offer ???
    Seems like the Wyoming belongs to the Third World's Countries !!!

  44. This guy is all over the place, none of them that try to justify Trump ever just answer a question… Do they understand how stupid they sound to us!?!?

  45. He isn't right people don't like golf more and this guy doesn't believe what he's saying .He is saying what trump and his base wants to hear..republicans are afraid of losing trumps base because they are the only ones dumb enough to vote for them.

  46. Hillary sold our all our uranium to Russia Hillary colluded with the Russians you stupid pieces of s*** you spoonfed propaganda dumbfucks

  47. Republicans have taken away exchanges, in various places and are not funding the existing exchanges they do not care about the American citizens they only care getting away with giving us (citizens) less and keeping more for themselves..
