    I wonder if Congressmen are going to get taxed (penalized?) for having an extra-super deluxe health care coverage plan, or did they exempt themselves from that, too.

    One is less a donkey and more a blue dog.

    Since the President does not have the power of line-item veto, perhaps he should hold a press conference before the signing of such a bill, reading off the list of pork riders along with who proposed them.Putting a name to the pork may allow some voters to see how wasteful their elected officials are, and perhaps get some new ones in. I would be very interested to know how many Tea Party candidates have attached riders to bills, and what they were. If there were none, I could probably hold more respect for them.

    Despite what Clark said both Democrats and Republicans are to blame. Democrats for being destructive and Republicans for being stupid.

    The Democrats want government control of just about everything healthcare alone will take over a large percentage of the economy. Then there is no way to make one set of rules for everybody, people’s decisions have to be made by themselves.

    Republicans have the best ideas but either our leaders don’t believe in them or they can’t communicate them.

    Jack, your rant is lacking basic truth. The Affordable Care Act leaves health care in the private sector. Everything in the act that reduces health care costs is being attacked by Republicans (remember the "Death Panels’ lie? It’s back), because reducing health care costs is of no importance to them. Count your blessings. If the ACA fails, even it it fails because of GOP intransigence, a single payer system will be the only thing left, and you WILL have government run health care. Fortunately for America, that has been proven to work better than the private sector everywhere it’s been tried.

    No your wrong insurers are leaving many markets mostly the individual markets.

    Obama comment of you will be able to keep your insurance provider is looking like just another promise.
