    But more of them are angry at the Repubs instead of the Dems.

    The buck stops where? Oh, Radish says the buck stops at the house.

    There is legitimate reason for concern, for individuals and for all Americans. For those who already have insurance, do you think this will not affect you? – it will. For it to work healthy people need to sign up to pay for the old and sickly (just like real insurance.)

    Obama needs to step up and be the President, he needs to address this issue, not just lean back in his chair and declare there will be no compromise.

    The Buck stops at the president’s desk, he needs to take action.

    The president has always been wiling to compromise on the budget, but the GOP has failed for six months to name a conference committee. They knew that the only way they could get the GOP agenda passed, since they cannot win votes in a democratic system, is to extort it against the will of the American people.

    “But in reality, a coal-fired electric plant kills more people than a nuclear plant,”

    I remember a study published in Scientific American many years ago about that. It was a surprise to me.

    Not surprised it isn’t worse; Republicans have MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, NPR, PBS attacking them. The left has FOX & conservative radio. Yes FOX is the most watched but if just one of these outlets would turn conservative, the left would still have the advantage.

    The House passed several budget bills Reid blocked them from even being voted on.

    The House offered piecemeal bills that did not fund the whole government, only the parts they wanted to fund. That’s not an honest attempt at reaching a compromise.

    When I had employer insurance, it was great. I paid a total of $2,200 per year, then my insurance covered 100% of my bills.

    Your former employer was probably paying a lot more than $2,200 for that coverage. When talking about premiums, it’s important to talk about the whole thing, not just what you saw as your cost.

    For those who already have insurance, do you think this will not affect you? – it will.

    If you are already have insurance from your employer, your premiums are based on the group you are in. The ACA exchange policies are a separate group. That’s the case for the majority of Americans.

    Those of us who have been buying our own insurance may be affected. This is why delaying the individual mandate as the GOP is demanding, is such a bad idea. Since insurers can’t deny coverage for pre-existing conditions, those with immediate health issues are signing up regardless. If the GOP got their way, we would be likely to see higher premiums next year.

    Of course the GOP would turn around & say, “See! It’s not working!”

    Did you hear the latest government shutdown “joke” about the elderly couple who was ordered and forced to vacate their home that they owned in 24 hours because it was on federal property? Ok, come on all you Obama supporters start laughing…Obama sure cares doesn’t he? That makes me laugh!

    “Of course the GOP would turn around & say, “See! It’s not working!””

    The individual mandate isn’t working quite like like it was thought it would. Major insurers are pulling out of insuring individuals in some states. The law of unintended consequences strikes again.

    Or could it be the more the government takes the less people try to support themselves and lose interest in working producing less, so we all have less.
