    I would have to disagree with that assessment. It’s definitely malignant.

    The communist policies that caused the growth are malignant.

    Let me know when you find AND CAN DOCUMENT those “communist policies.” Because you are using that word inaccurately. Obama is appointing bankers to top positions, not radicals. He himself is a business-friendly moderate at best.
    Go ahead, list a couple. Just try.

    So far, Mr. Cruz is a proponent of will and will power, those extremes of “positive” thinking that laud bootstraps, and flog the underclasses who aren’t lifting strongly or successfully enough. I’d like to think his next stage of political development will acknowledge that democracy is neither all thesis nor all antithesis. It is synthesis arrived at through informed debate, a fair vote, and the acceptance of majority decisions. I should like to think Mr. Cruz will come round to Lincoln and Jefferson’s point of view, even Mr. McCain’s. But then I think the United States need no new Triumph of the Will.

    When the Republicans are capable of telling the truth about the issue, then I would be delighted. So far what we have from them are lies and mischaracterization; inaccurate statements about the plan itself, simple-minded lack of any acknowledgement that there is and was a need for reform because the system is already the most expensive in the world for the 37th-best service (and no provision at all for millions), and a complete lack of awareness of the true monetary cost of the broken system that they want to perpetuate.

    Absolutely Lynne, and the Koch brothers are spending a lot of money telling those lies via commercial and media blitz. http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/09/23/sabotaging-hhealth-care-one-lie-at-a-time/

    The American people may be poorly educated and ignorant of science, but they are NOT stupid as a whole.
    The need for health care is obvious and it takes a lot of doublethink to pretend it is not.
    I am for a better life for my children than my parents had, health care is part of that hope.

    No, you are right that the rank of 37th wasn’t based on “service”, it was in fact based on outcome and value for money.


    Before the healthcare reform, more than 47 million American citizens were either uninsured or underinsured to the point of impacting service availability seriously; 86.7 million people went uninsured for at least part of the year in 2008. With healthcare reform, yes, millions will still be uninsured, but it trims between14 to 30 million off the chronically uninsured — plus insurance companies can’t get away with that “pre-existing conditions” nonsense. I am unclear as to why you think this is a bad thing.


    And as someone who has been following healthcare costs and issues for about a decade, the idea that the ACA is more expensive than the previous system of hidden expenses is completely wrong.

    Note, please: the insured have been paying for the uninsured for years. I’m always a little amazed that the people who (fairly or, often, unfairly) grouse about “free-riders” the most, seem to understand the least that the ACA tries to address the fact that people need to carry their own insurance; and the people grousing about “additional costs” for ACA don’t seem to remember that costs have been rising, faster even than they are now, for decades – and that previously you had no idea what it was you were paying for.
