    Wait till the low-information Obama voter sees what’s in their future for how much Obamacare will cost them in 2014. Won’t be pretty….

    - Over in the real world, Obamacare moves along with a few bumps, but still the best option short of Medicare-for-All.

    - Officially, President Obama will be the best US President since FDR on 2017; unofficially, he already is.

    You must have a really low opinion of him considering FDR presided over the deaths of hundreds of thousands.

    The only thing that makes it the best option, Reflex, is that it’s the only option. The idea behind the PPACA was good. As law it’s a mess. It’s implementation is difficult. I’d like to see it scrapped and rewritten before it’s implemented.

    I don’t know about the bribe part, but we’re definitely all stuck with it.

    Why do you have to be funnier then the strip? Oh wait, the strip is a real life tragedy, you are just a clueless Obamapologist. I guess now i feel bad for laughing at you. But do not worry, I think Obamacare covers pre existing conditions such as dementia, You can wait to get treatment with only a small fine i guess. The rest of us will be forced to pay for it, that is if the Obamacare IRS don’t find you 1st.

    It’s bribery by favor. Earmarks for their state if they vote.

    Now, because of the PPACA (because I refuse to call it Obamacare), employers will have to know how much you earned last year to discover how much of a threshold you had last year to determine how much of an income you have before they can start paying taxes on the PPACA requirements. So not only do you get to hand in your resume with your application, you get to hand in last year’s tax returns, too! So much for privacy.

    Hope those drugs you’re taking are / will be covered by Obamacare because clearly you need them. “Best president since FDR.” Yeah, clearly you’re delusional. Where a rolling eyes icon when you need one?

    As far as insurance costs going up: if anyone has been paying attention, they have been going up between 5 and 20 % per year for years. My personal health insurance has almost tripled in the 9 years that I’ve been paying premiums. Now, granted, I’m nine years older, but I am healthy. I can’t imagine what would happen if I actually needed to use my insurance coverage.

    When you take away the cost of unpaid emergency-room services from “nowhere” and add them to the cost of health care, it’s frightening. In 2011, more than $39 BILLION was unpaid emergency room fees. We pay for it, whether it’s in that column of the balance sheet or not.

    And, what’s more cost-effective: paying for meds for diabetes, or having a patient who can’t afford them wait until he/she needs amputation, dialysis, etc? A stitch in time….

    When all is said and done, though, single-payer Medicare for all is what this particular doctor sees as the only alternative for the train wreck that was the previous system, and the well-intentioned but unworkable ACA. The sooner we do something about this the better, but repeal-only is a fool’s mission.

    @ScottPM

    Then why does EVERY “advanced” and many not so advanced, nation in this world have “socialized” medicine ?
    Is this due to our conservatives ?
    BTW, out government does provide health care , ever hear of the VA ?
    I am trying to give fact, not opinion.

    “Look up the Lousiana Purchase and the Cornhusker Kickback.”

    Yeah, I remember those but never thought of them as bribes. I guess they are.

    That’s one of the major problems of the PPACA. It exempts so many people from the insurance pool, making it more expensive for those who are required to be in it. So much for equal treatment under law.
