    Oh, if insuring people’s health WORKS on a national scale, and makes for a healthier, happier populace, longer lived and more productive…

    Well, the results are just to-o-o-o-o profound to consider, aren’t they?

    Like the VA works on a national scale. If you live in an area with a good work ethic, the VA is fine, otherwise it sucks.

    The VA would work fine if it were properly funded. They are running on decades-old equipment, and the Republicans who never hesitate to support war anytime anywhere won’t cough up the money that veterans need.

    “…and the Republicans who never hesitate to support war anytime anywhere won’t cough up the money that veterans need.”
    .
    News Flash: There is a Democrat in the white house.
    Second News Flash: During his first 2 years Democrats were in the majority and yet the problem was not fixed.
    .
    He then lost his majority, and it wasn’t because of too much competence.

    …and the Republicans were filibustering nearly every piece of legislation. That was (and still is) their strategy: Block anything significant from getting done and then call Obama a bad president because he can’t get anything done.

    Oh, and Democrats lost in 2010 not due to incompetence, but because “Citizens United” opened the floodgates of near-unlimited spending.

    Total crap. At my business the costs skyrocketed. I had to quit offering health insurance to new hires and radically downgrade what is offered to those grandfathered in. Obamanationcare is basically welfare poorly disguised as “health care.” They force people who do not need or want it to carry it or those who have it to carry coverage they neither need nor want in order to give out more welfare. Socialism (i.e., legalized theft) from a socialist Obamanation, simple as that.

    I know some actual people who have been effected by Obamacare. There’s my aunt. She had a rough time getting a job because she’s diabetic and potential employers didn’t want to deal with the insurance issues involved. Now she has her own insurance and a new job. Then there’s my niece, who can stay on her parent’s plan until she’s 26. Until Obamacare, she didn’t have insurance. Personally, Obamacare is closing the donut hole on my Medicare, which means it will pay for a lot of medication that would have been my problem before Obamacare. And, there’s my brother who was staying on a job he only needed for the insurance because his wife has chronic respiratory problems and if she had gotten really bad it would have wiped out their savings. Now he has Obamacare and he’s retired. Another person who has benefited is the lady who took the job he no longer needed. I don’t personally know of anyone who has had a problem with Obamacare, and those who are featured on TV so far have turned out to either being lying or too stupid to actually check out how it works. So, if you folks who are screaming about how bad Obamacare is have some actual cases of people who have been harmed and offset all of these benefits, put up or shut up.

    Not my experience. Over 9 local medical companies in the San Fernando Valley (NW LA County) have gone out of business directly due to Obamacare and Medicare cuts. My insurance under Obamacare would have more the doubled in montly cost. Anyone that says differently is mis-informed.

    NYTimes: 2/3 of jobs created part time

    AP: New Jobs Disproportionately Low Pay or Part Time

    Coincidence? I think not. (Just wait until the other ACA mandates that Obama illegally postponed until after the elections kick in.)

    @exoticdoc2

    I couldn’t afford health care before the ACA. Now I pay $5.98 a month for a Bronze plan. Sorry the ACA won’t let you decide who gets health care and who doesn’t…

    …Wait, no, I’m not sorry at all.

    And who doesn’t need health care?

    @Gary Kleppe

    Obama passed the ACA with absolutely NO republican support, so what you are saying doesn’t wash.

    Wow, what an idiot. What does Obama have to do with funding the VA? It’s congress that writes the checks, genius. And it’s the GOP that has filibustered and blocked funding to the V.A.

    Back to the topic of the cartoon: As Obamacare has become a great success (78% of Republicans who got health care plans on the insurance exchange are quite satisfied with them), the Republicans have stopped running against it. When the voters in red states realize how much they’ve been shafted by their governors and legislators, we’ll suddenly see a very quick reversal and Medicaid will be expanded there too.
