    Repeal and replace with nothing sounds fantastic!
    Most Americans were actually happy with their healthcare before Barry and his cronies screwed it all up.

    Some 50 million Americans of the general middle aged working class, middle economic class do not have any medical insurance at all, are they also happy with their health care? The only thing they can do is to go to an emergency room when a condition that could ordinarily be corrected by ordinary doctor’s visits becomes too painful to stand. And usually by then they are going to die from that said condition anyway. And some 45,000 of such fellow American do just that each year (more than all the automobile accident deaths and gun shot deaths combined)!!


    Our “great” health care system is rated number 38 by the World Health Care Organization (one of who’s jobs is to do such ratings). Just behind that industrial giant known as Costa Rica! However, we are absolutely number one in at least one category, and that is cost. Hurray for US!!!



    Now, the ACA may very well not be the ultimate answer, but is is going to be indeed better than continuing these insurance company “Death Squads!” If the ACA has problems, (remember, this was the first choice of the Republicans in Congress, NOT the first choice of our current president). Then it should indeed be up to the Congress to make such changes in it so as to improve it until it actually does the job it was intended to do in the first place. This should take far less time than starting all over again from scratch, at least with a reasonable and cooperative Congress that is!!


    By the way, you do know just what country has the number one health care system of the countries of the world, do you not? The much conservatively hated country of France, that is who!! Is it not ironic that our vaunted system is so far behind that of France? But then, if you even knew that, I am certain you would never admit such a truth, now would you?

    Are you kidding? If you got sick you could never get insurance again because of pre-existing conditions. If you got really sick insurance companies could just refuse to pay, forcing the sick to declare bancruptcy and raising health care costs for everyone else. Did you know most of the people who had to declare medical bancruptcy HAD health insurance?

    Now that the ACA has made lifetime caps and fraudulent plans illegal when people get really sick we won’t get stuck with the bill.

    Robert Landers and Adrian Snare said all that needs to be said.
    I am sorry that ConGov and Ansonia are not more aware of their neighbors who are suffering from no fault of their own. Too many Americans are as innocent in their consequences as a person walking on the sidewalk suddenly struck by an uninsured driver, a falling tree branch, or a lightning strike. Using the minority of Americans who abuse the system, whether they be on food stamps or receiving gov’t subsidies for their business, ignores the large majority for whom protections were created, the ones who actually need them. Dems and Reps alike use the few in order to castigate the many. Not all Reps are Ted Cruz, and not all Dems are Alan Gray. Very few businesses are Exxon/Goldman Sachs, and very few Food Stamp recipients are crack dealing prostitutes.
    The small print matters. That’s where the loopholes, addendums, and earmarks are found. Healthcare matters. If you are going to cancel the ACA, then tell hospitals they are allowed to turn away any patient who can’t show they can make payment. No money, no ER visit. Die or live with the results of your injury and income.
    Most who die will be the poor and disenfranchised, but Debtfree will one day get a call from a friend or relative who says if they don’t get help, they’re not going to be treated for their heart attack. ConGov will get a call from son or daughter whose compound fracture is going to be ignored unless a credit card payment is made over the phone. Ansonia will lose someone they love because the hospital said, “We can’t treat you unless you can pay.”
    Too many people don’t care about the person they pass on the street, but when friends and loved ones don’t send Christmas cards this year because they’re dead, and just because they couldn’t afford treatment, then even those who want the ACA replaced with nothing will notice.
    I just wonder how many of the people we don’t know will have to die before Americans start caring.
    Angrily,
    C.

    @Debt Free

    Yeah!! To hell with those who can’t afford health insurance, put off seeing the doctor until it’s a dire emergency, declare bankruptcy, and stick everyone else with their massive medical bills.

    Screw those who can’t get insurance due to preexisting conditions, put off seeing the doctor until it’s a dire emergency, declare bankruptcy, and stick everyone else with their medical bills.

    Forget those who find their insurance canceled when they actually need to use it, declare bankruptcy, and stick everyone else with the bill.

    The World Health Organization may have ranked the US healthcare system #37, below Columbia and Costa Rica, but we’re #1 for the few who can afford quality insurance. We’ll happily absorb everyone else’s health care expenses in the form of higher bills and insurance premiums if it means maintaining the insurance companies’ lucrative status quo! Us lucky few see us as #1 and that’s all that matters.

    Good ‘Toon. The Truth compressed into a small space. However, the RepubliCon NOTHING is actually emergency room care. And emergency room care is paid for by local hospitals, and therefore by local people, at 5 to 8 times the cost of regular preventative care, in case anybody ’cares’ about the bottom line.

    …but was denied coverage due to their
    preexisting condition

    .
    Which is against the law. So, one person posting BS is eagerly snapped up by persons such as yourself, who are desperately looking for anything to attack the ACA and Democrats in general, and President Obama in specific.
    .
    Again and again you regurgitate the same tired, right-wing word salad, distortions, and propaganda. What your posts lack in substance is made up with venom and volume. It really is hard to read your hysterical invectives.

    And the ACA Obamacare will do NOTHING to help them! In Fact it has made it HARDER to get health insurance if you are apart of the working poor/ middle class. This plan was flawed from the start! If it was working The number would be right out in front! 2.7 million needed slots of young healthy people are signing up to support 7 million needed to make it work! Those were the number touted before the arrival! The site crashing was no accident. Two months before it were to run they changed it to hide the price! Now, just as the elephant predicted, you cant NOT keep what you had. Why? Obama deems that plan the middle class and those in the working poor could afford not good enough!

    Jim you are still a parrot for the loony left! The GOP has had and still has many solutions that did not set out to FAIL as did Obamacare! Plans that would and will work that did not have to DESTROY what we already have! The Elephant saw the writing on the wall. Obamacare is doomed in order to try to bring in single government owned payer! The Elephant has better plans! Simple plans such as Health accounts with catastrophic coverage that is not job dependent and recognized across State lines. Just to name the basic of one of many plans!

    And I do not see Obama having any rich friends…."
    oh that is a hoot. Are you that blind? Tell me this, how do most of our representatives go into public office and make millions? Obama has never held a real job that made real money. Yet He is a multi millionaire. Made his money while “working for the people”

    Actually the Republicans have offered several bills with some changes. Many of the areas are the same: pre-existing, children etc. It is the Prez and the Dems who refused to even entertain another version.
