    That box will probably never be opened, and if it is many people will be surprised to find out what is actually inside. The Democrat party now sees it as a ticking bomb which will destroy the economy. They’re trying to lengthen the fuse as they distance themselves as far away from it as possible.

    Ewww… It’s starting to stink. I think it’s gone bad. Can I return it?

    - Taking time to make sure a few things work properly so the whole thing works would make sense to most people.

    And you don’t think the current system isn’t socialist? Uninsured person comes into the emergency room, is treated free of charge …important to save a human life, don’tcha know…and the cost gets passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher hospital fees, higher insurance premiums, etc. Free ride for the uninsured. The only way this could be solved is if we got tough and refused medical treatment to the uninsured, which, I hope, we aren’t cruel enough to do. So, what’s YOUR plan?

    Yeah, sorry, but no. I would be thrilled if it were about them fine tuning. It’s not. The fact they are keeping it on hold until later speaks volumes about how little faith the Democrats themselves have in it. People deserve health care. Not party rhetoric. This is the main reason I’m for scraping it and coming up with something else.

    Where did Obama get the power to change the law without the congress and the senate?Is he doing this because Obamacare is making him and the dems look bad?

    If you like your plan you can keep your plan ,period.

    We have to pass it to find out what’s in it.

    Adrian, you are correct, repression IS evil. Now, can you or anyone else explain how forcing me into buying a health care plan that I don’t want or need is not repressive?

    you would think that 5 years would be enough to iron out the bugs wouldn’t you?

    Some cynics might say the delays have something to do with the ‘14 elections.

    About which we, as of current date, don’t have a lot of hard, reliable data about what’s going to happen.

    IEM says there’s a 10% chance the Republicans will lose the House, and a 25% chance the Democrats will lose the Senate, so the most likely outcome is the current status quo.

    Rasmussen’s Congressional poll gives the Republicans 36% who plan to vote for them today and gives the Democrats 39%. But Congressional polls aren’t that reliable.

    (The most uncannily accurate predictor for the ‘12 election was, of course fivethirtyeight, which is supposed to reappear sometime after St Patrick’s Day.)

    PPACA is not Socialist, unless you mean helping the Corporations who still run it. That might be called Fascism.

    Emergency room medical system is the worst next to none at all. Costs the most, does the least and puts undo pressure on ER’s some of which have closed because of it. And former president Bush recommended it.

    They’re trying to delay it until after the 2016 election. Obama’s an ignorant, lying, scumbag.

    Delaying a make it or break it part of the law to prevent electorial disaster, while also giving the other side a tool to dismantle the whole thing doesn’t make sense to folks with two neuron’s

    Fine I presume you will be moving to North Korea since it is a far more “socialist” country than we are.
    why do you assume that we want the country in ruins? is it because you would rather see it that way than our way?
    I don’t hate anyone, granted there are folks on all side’s I’d like to see marooned far far away but I wish them no harm. just to not be hectored by them.
    And since we are comparing nationalize heatlh care, do you want to get in depth about the NHS in Britain which is starving people to death to save money, and hospitals have equipment decacdes out of date held to gettheter with spit and bailing wire.?
