    Republicans are desperate to stop it because they do not want anything in the country to be improved during Obama’s presidency.
    -
    Not health care.
    Not jobs.
    Not the economy.
    Not immigration.
    -
    Hatred for Obama outweighs every issue.

    Loud as they are, they are still a minority, and still alienating good Americans with their antics.

    Unfortunately, the GOP has gerrymandered themselves in. They would have to almost literally take a torch to their neighbors’ houses to get voted out.

    ACA may work, but it will never be as good as it could have been had the Republicans and Democrats been able to work together in good faith.
    I hope Braindead is wrong and Rep reluctance has been over the standard party desire to make the other party look bad, because if all of this has ONLY been because of our first black president from day one, when McConnell said the goal was to keep him from being a two term president, then this has much more negative connotations. Pelosi, Boehnor and Reid have also thrown their sticks into the spokes of our gov’t bicycle.
    That said…
    Mr. Obama is no Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan. He apparently does not know how to reach out beyond his circle of confidants in order to build some sort of consensus and he spends more time on his road show than he does confronting and courting the Congress.
    I want my neighbors, friends, and family to have healthcare insurance. Just as I want those driving on the roadways with me to have car insurance, and for the buildings in which I shop and dine to have business insurance. Things happen.
    I also want hospitals and other medical service/equipment providers to charge what things are actually worth, not what they can get. Rand Paul suggests that since we don’t, or can’t, shop around for medical services – especially in emergencies – we allow ourselves to be charged too much. If actual competition was part of the equation, costs would drop. I agree and we are seeing some prices dropping, especially in states that are conforming to the ACA guidelines.
    But it would be even better and more efficient if our self serving cannibalistic legislature would do their jobs in a civil and respectful manner.
    Respectully,
    C.

    Look at the damage it has done already! Look at the damage it would have done in 2014! But no Obama saw that it was an election year so now that damage is not going to be until 2015!
    The guy is right! IT WILL NOT WORK! It will only harm the USA! So it MUST BE STOPPED!

    Wow really? so now it is not Obama’s policies or his rule that has made this the worse “recovery” in the Nations history? But but but I thought Obama was the greatest? i thought with both the house and Senate in his 1st 2 years he could do not wrong and everything would be coming up Roses for the USA because we elected him.
    but those evil mean R just want him to fail? Not his policies?
    You want to talk about FAIL? How is bankrupting coal going to help the USA? that is just one example out of many where OBAMA has said he wants the USA to fail! And he is using the EPA to make his wish come true.
    Don’t like that what about the FAIL that is Obamacare! Obama knows it is a Failure so he can usher in control of the 16% of the USA economy with single payer with the government holding the purse strings!

    I might have more respect for the Republican’s point of view IF they had a workable alternative OTHER then leaving Big Insurance and Big Pharma in charge of deciding who will be able to afford health care!
    How about it, Republicans?

    It irritates me that the Republicans have offered no alternative, but I also haven’t heard of any Democrats asking Republicans what they want. There doesn’t seem to be any dialog and compromise occurring.

    The shameful cult of personality that the president enjoys is so un-American. We all wanted him to succeed, but by any objective standard, he has failed. Just like the president before him. He has made us weaker in the eyes of the world and corrupt at home. Libs are like a wife that has all the signs her husband is abusive and cheating on her, but she still defends him to her friends and family. Tragic.

    face it;SOMETHING needs to be done about health care here
    in the US…I see ACA as a first step towards universal (single
    payer)health care like other nations have.

    What is needed is an actual developed database of just what works about ACA, and what is not working. And then a Congress that is actually willing to work together to fix those things that do not work. However, is this Congress (yes, on both sides of the aisle) even willing to discuss actual solutions to any problems that come up?? All I hear from Congress, is either that it will work perfectly (from the Democrats), which is patently impossible, or that it will not work at all from the other side of the aisle (the Republicans) and must be totally repealed, Which is also totally (impossible) and totally incorrect for the tens of millions of Americans that have no health care at all. The only truly constructive thing that we as reasonable Americans can do is to wait and see.

    And this is a Republican victory? How much better your country could have been with some cooperation should be the question.

    OK so big business gets a pass for another year (boy can’t have bad stuff happen because of a democrat policy before an election oh no), the Unions want out (going to destroy the 40 hour work week don’cha know) and the people who said they have to pass it before they can see what is in it got an exemption for themselves and their staffers

    Here is a list (as of 7/2012) of companies that have obtained an exemption:

    So, tell me again how everyone thinks this is the best thing since sliced bread.

    Obama …. to big to fail … not matter what he does to the country.

    The Republican alternative to Obama Care is Romney Care, which has been working for six years in Massachusetts. Why don’t they take a little credit for that? They floated it as THE alternative to Single Payer back when the Clintons were pushing healthcare.
    -
    Come on then, Repubs? What’sa matter? Don’t you want a little credit for the research, and time, and energy you put into conceiving Romney Care?

    What’sa matter for you?
