    The republicans had the opportunity to fix the problems with healthcare and failed to even try. Now we’re on a runaway freight train toward socialized medicine, which has failed its participants whereever it has been tried. That’s why Canadian politicians come to America to get treated for cancer.
    The other thing that should be considered is that to say it would bring down the deficit the President had to project a 9% growth in the economy. The chances of this are about the same as finding a steroid free professional bodybuilder.

    Yup. Obama went ahead and made it more affordable. Curse him!

    Republicans are afraid of the ACA because it will succeed, and people will like it.

    Ka-ZINGG!
    The latest attempt to sabotage is to ask young people to refuse to enroll in Obamacare — to have them risk their OWN lives simply to threaten the financial stability of the program, which, like all insurance offerings, relies on a balance of those who need care now and those who need it less. Disgusting.

    I think you must mean that Obama and Pelosi (Pelosi ???) gave us RomneyCare.

    Obama came in talking Single Payer.

    Remember ..?

    Hey, it doesn’t take much – the industrialists and the power structure have done it repeatedly over history – Rome, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia, just to name the obvious.

    It only takes a few, if they are well placed in government.

    “And then they die two weeks later from America’s inadequate medical care.”

    Fortunately, the old canard about Canadians coming to the US for necessary health care is pure GOP fantasy, but the foot soldiers can’t let it go.

    Sure, some well off Canadians come to the States for elective care. Most are smart enough to go to Europe for that, though, because the whole world understands the reality of American health care.

    The US is a great place to get shot up or mangled in an auto accident. It’s probably true that our trauma medicine is superior.

    Unfortunately, regular, sound, humane medical care is a different matter. Will RomneyCare fix it?

    No, it won’t. Delivery is only one facet of the problem. It’s an important one, and it might mean coverage for a few people who don’t have it how. What it won’t change is BigPharma’s and the Medical Industry’s grip on protocols and costs. That is a problem which needs to be fixed.

    Medicine in the US has devolved into a kind of drug delivery system, which functions without regard to individual needs. The goal appears to be to force every resident onto toxic drug protocols, on the rationalization of ‘prevention’. If you cast your mind back to the number of recalls by BigPharma since they got the green light for direct-to-consumer advertising, I think you can follow my thinking. Those recalls were only for drugs that actually killed a substantial number of patients (patients should not be seen as consumers), not those who merely injured them or are keeping them dysfunctional.

    Why would anyone think US health care is even adequate, much less great? Our accomplishments with trauma medicine aren’t enough to offset the rest, which is across the board mediocre at best.

    Of course, I’m a patient, not an insurer, or even a doctor. Not that the doctors I keep like it any better than I do. If I could afford medical care, I’d go elsewhere to be treated, and that’s a fact. I have cancer and three chronic conditions, so yes, I have recent exposure and plenty of it. Medical care in the US has a very high vacuum rating.

    If the USA had the same healthcare as Canada and the rest of the G8 and paid 10 percent of GDP instead of 18 percent
    for health care it would not have a deficit.
