    Just reminding people who tried to stop it before all hell breaks out and the libs try to say it was “Bush’s fault”.

    To the House of Representatives: We heard you the third time.

    Seriously, the system that Obamacare seeks to replace is broken. We cannot go back, we must move forward. If the Republicans were smart, they’d come up with a better plan. It’s more likely they would gain votes if they showed some real leadership. Privatizing healthcare has already been taken (Obamacare). Privatizing Medicare, as Mr. Ryan proposed, will just send seniors to emergency rooms, where the cost of care will rise exponentially, and the taxpayer will be expected to bail the hospitals out. Unworkable. So they will hope to gain power by trying to make the democrats fail (being part of the problem) rather than saving the day with, say, single payer (part of the solution). Good luck with that strategy. It may work, but at what cost?

    Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is a sign of insanity.

    What legislation has been proposed that would create jobs? During the last election, both parties said job creation was their number one issue and since the elections, neither have said much or anything reported in our corporate owned media news outlets.
    Romney/Obama Care is a good idea, but lacking bipartisan cooperation, design, construction, and implementation, it is deeply flawed. And despite that, it is better than no health care at all.
    Sadly,

    The PPACA is a mess and needs repealed and replaced with something that makes sense. Key word being “replaced”.

    Perhaps the Elephant would have more success if he actually had a viable alternative that works, rather then just going back to the system of the Insurance Industry making totally obscene profits off of other people’s suffering!

    Come on Elephants, where is YOUR National Health Care Plan that will save people money, and provide better and more affordable Health Care for the Largest Industrialized Nation in the World?Of course, with the Insurance Industry making gazillions of $$ yearly, that insures a steady source of “Campaign Contributions”!

    Haven’t you learned yet how to tell when a politician is lying during a campaign?

    If you support and want Obamacare (the planned entry to total Socialized Government Medical Care) you need a refresher course in what the Constitution allows government to do! FDR undermined the Constitutional authority limits;
    LBJ put government into PROVIDING welfare (stealing from the Treasury of Tax Revenues) which the cowardly GOP failed to challenge in the USSC. Obama is succeeding where Clinton failed…on healthcare….and Saul Alinsky must be very, very happy to see his disciple Obama pushing the USA into bankruptcy and collapse of Capitalism.

    @Gore Bane

    " And if Single Payer is such a hot idea, why didn’t Democrats champion it when they had full control of both houses and the Presidency?"

    Darned good question. I can only speculate, but I think I’m right: Obama realized he would not get cooperation from Republicans for Single Payer; it would be dead in the water. He chose Romneycare to start with, since it was championed by a Republican and the idea originated at the Heritage Institute. Also he inserted the individual mandate so wonderfully received as the centerpiece of Medicare Part D, another Republican piece of health care. He figured if he gave them enough of their own ideas, he might receive cooperation. Two problems: one, Republicans had no desire to agree with him on anything. Two, those two models were seriously flawed, whether unconstitutional or not. Now we’re stuck with an attempted compromise gone bad.

    Wish he had gone for single payer from the beginning.

    Saul Alinsky was someone who died when Obama was 11 years old.

    @Disgusted Taxpayer. Obamacare, despite what many people say, is not socialized medicine. It is quite the opposite. It is truly unfortunate that there is so much deliberate disinformation being distributed. How can anyone make an intelligent choice when one is presented with lies presented as facts?

    Obamacare is actually corporate welfare for the insurance industry: all gain, no pain. Insurance gets spoon-fed a bunch more clients, since all must purchase insurance. But the insurance companies are still allowed to either deny coverage to sick people or charge so much that it cannot be afforded, and so the taxpayer, through health exchanges and Medicaid, will take care of those that the health insurance companies taste and spit back out.

    @Deerflatener and @Disgusted: Do you presently have insurance of any kind? If so, you are a socialist. I strongly recommend you look up the word you so frequently throw around. You may be surprised at what it truly means.

    @IPlay One….it is difficult to argue intelligently with someone who believes that private enterprise individual insurance companies amounts to “socialism”……duh.

    @PepeLePew….do an internet search for Saul Alinsky, who before he died, wrote the Manual for grass roots doing progressive steps to achieve true 100% Government Control in a system of Socialism that replaces Capitalism and freedom for citizens, a system that will nullify our Constitution.

    And that medical problem is mental illness on the part of the House GOP.

    I’m sorry you disagree.

    I’ll spell it out for you: if you have insurance, you pay a certain amount of money regularly into the insurance company’s “pot”. If you need it (you get sick), you get to take money out of the pot. If you don’t, you lose the money. Those who need, get. Those who don’t need, share. This is the very essence of socialism.

    Does this help?
