    Right…nothing hurts worse than improved coverage at lower cost. BTW…Obamacare was originally a Republican creation. Understand…don’t react.

    “Obamacare was originally a Republican creation” hahahahahahahahaha

    Oh wait, I suppose you have some sort of document that mirrors the ACA – all 2000 pages – with all the exact same rules and reg proposed in your archives. Care to share?

    You should research this subject somewhere besides political talking point sites.

    I was just informed that my retiree health plan will be abandoned by my company (IBM), due to unsustainable costs, to something called an “exchange”. Even well capitalized companies are bailing out thanks to this terrible legislation. Thanks for sucking me into your Socialist agenda Mr. Hope and Change. More accurately, Hype and Lies Obama

    “And, the thing we do NOT need is the never ending slurs and insults from the conservative – extremists”
    .
    Yeah, because YOU and other Libs have NEVER called conservatives: Racists, haters, cons, republitards, etc, or anything of the like…..right??? You’re SO squeaky clean!

    Progressives believe Taxes fix everything. This inane act is simply the largest tax in human history. That’s Obamas legacy.

    A friend of mine last week went to the hospital for food poisoning after eating at Pick-up Stix. Three days, $52k. She’s out of work (her programming job having been outsourced), but was working part-time minimum wage jobs at 7-11 at night. She’s financially ruined, and the Corporate giant who poisoned her has their lawyers defending their best interests. Republican ideas for coverage of the uninsured is the ER – or just die and get the hell out of the way. My friend could afford the premiums (if it were available) for something like Medicare (which would be about $500), but private insurance were quoting $1200 a month for her and her 11-year-old daughter. She couldn’t afford it, and took a chance – and lost. This is where heartless Tea-partiers will scream (Let Her DIE!"). Too late for her, Exchanges under Obamacare will be set up in a month where insurance, at group rates, will cost a more manageable $300-400/Mo.

    Americans pay more for health care and get less for it than any other country. That’s what happens when capitalism runs health care.

    Republicans/Fox “news” viewers don’t believe the American health care system should be improved. Like Mitch McConnell, they believe that the American health care system is the best in the world and needs no improvement at all.

    You know, my health care is just fine.

    “Social conscience” with regard to health care, and a functioning single payer system, which works very well in many countries, doesn’t automatically mean “socialized medicine”. Such a plan has been proposed, and rejected by “conservatives” controlling the vote, even while in the minority.


    Simple fact, the ACA IS brining costs down, and could do better, if BOTH parties weren’t defending the profits of the “health care industries”, of various factions.


    Negotiating prices, instead of paying what the “market will bear”, DOES bring costs down, and could be doing much better! Hmm, wonder how many doctors make as much as the lobbyists for the industry?? I’d bet, none, unless they’re lobbyists themselves!

    That was reference to the “Let Him Die!” audience response during the Republican primary debates, over a hypothetical situation where an uninsured person gets sick.

    @Zuhlamon

    I seem to remember on June 25, 2009 Obama told Jane Sturm that her 100 year old mother could just take a pain pill rather than get a pacemaker.
    IF I’m not mistaken, that “Let them die” statement came from your DEM President!

    @braindeader.08

    There is no way everyone will be able to get healthcare much less pay for the TAX penalty. There is no way it can sustain itself. It will collapse like a house of cards, THEN what?
    I’ve never said healthcare doesn’t need an improvement. But the way Obamacare plans to do it will just make things worse! If it were so good why are SO many unions, corporations, and politicians, etc seeking exemptions from it???
