    I’m sure Kool Aid slammin’ lefties still do, even if it kills them.

    Yet when presented at the state level, applicants accept it wholeheartedly. (tho some do not realize it is the Affordable Care Act being implemented.)

    There’s just as many Righties screamin’ Hey Kool Aid at the top of their lungs as well. Though I’ll agree to having reservations about Obamacare

    The federal government can’t run the post office. Why do you want them involved with your colonoscopy?

    Seriously, it will be like any other big government program. It will do a few things well and most things poorly. I’m more concerned with the government having knowledge of something I consider private, the further degrading of our medical system, and that the system will ultimately be another short term solution that leads to longer term problems i.e. Social Security.

    I agree that health insurance is an issue that needed to be addressed. I just don’t think Obamacare is a good way to address it.

    Boehner and the “Righties” who screwed up the law with their inclusions, need to see a proctologist, because their “arguments” against the law are “full of it”. Yes, it does need to be amended, like providing “single payer”, making Medicare negotiate drug prices, as well as “services”, and that “oppressive” section that mandates at least 80% of premiums paid to insurance companies go to CARE, not “administration costs” needs to REMAIN!

    As they’re STILL working on regulations on how to ADMINISTER the law, and that is also being held up by Republicans inn House committees, it is action, not more stone-walling and objection that is needed.

    “The federal government can’t run the post office.”
    Are you taking into consideration the policies being imposed by those who do not want the post office being a government agency as well as almost everyone in the united states being serviced. For the price, they are doing better than any other delivery service.

    ^“technically” the Post Office has been a corporation, and not a “government agency” for some time.

    Too bad the Republicans don’t work as hard at improving Obamacare as they do at trying to destroy it. The best part of Obamacare is that it’s an important step toward universal and affordable health care. But there’s more work to be done. The Republicans seem prepared to stop at nothing to prevent an important and potentially popular program from forever being linked to Obama and the Democrats.

    You can’t fix a jet engine mid flight, why should obamacare be fixed mid implementation? It shouldn’t! Take it out of commission and correct everything that is wrong with it (which would be most everything).

    Oh, and if you are all for single payer, answer these two questions.

    1) Have you ever lived in a country prior to now or currently that has single payer?

    2) If you have lived in a country with single payer, have you EVER had a serious medical issue (like cancer) or mental illness or end of life illnesses.

    If you cannot answer yes to BOTH of these questions, then…..

    Yes to both questions. Its not the only way to go but probably the best. For a number of reasons – cheaper, less bureaucracy, and you live longer.

    Just to make it three — I’ve lived in the US and I’ve lived in Canada, and I much prefer the Canadian single-payer system. I haven’t had an end of life illness as yet, but friends and family have dealt with the inevitable, and they have had prompt and compassionate care. My brother-in-law here in Toronto is now dealing with bladder cancer, and he care he is receiving is first-rate. Bladder cancer can be very expensive to treat, because it tends to recur. He’s on disability for other reasons, and can’t work, but he never has to worry about whether or not he can pay for his cancer treatment. I’m having dinner tomorrow with an MD friend, and I know what she thinks of the US system. My best friend in the US, whom I’ve known since I was in grade four, is an MD in California, and I know that he prefers the Canadian system also.
