    So much for “Affordable” health care for everybody…

    Only the freeloaders and illegals(soon to be legal) will benefit from this horrendous bill.
    The rest of us will pay higher insurance premiums, higher taxes and have worse medical care.
    Good job Dems!

    Was that what you were expecting? I am not in the least bit surprised. Disappointed, naturally.

    So you’re saying that the Health Care plan that the Gingrich and the Heritage Foundation came up with to counter Clinton’s proposed Single-Payer plan ISN’T workable?
    That Romneycare doesn’t work?

    Because the Free Market Economy of Private Health Care Insurance has been increasing rates since LONG before Obama decided to go to law school.

    No problem. We’ll just go back to the old way where the insurance company dumps people when they get sick. That’s the best way after all.

    If I was to nominate one statement that swung your last Presidential Election, it was (from memory):
    “We are now implementing Governor Romney’s Health Care System nationwide …”
    The one that Romney was told by his controllers is Bad For Democracy – despite it working out well.

    Romney looked like a real fool trying to say that he was a competent manager, but that his greatest achievement was a bad idea.

    Really? Did not every last one say that no funds would be available for this?

    Insurance companies, businesses, and private citizens are already being charged a premium to compensate hospitals and doctors for ER patients who are unable to pay their bills.
    Another premium is paid as hospitals charge wildly varied prices for the exact same services without providing explanation why costs vary so much.
    A Congress able to work together in a bipartisan spirit could create a healthcare plan that would benefit all of our neighbors. Failure to create a national healthcare plan will result in prices continuing to rise while too many Americans remain uninsured.
    People were so afraid of Death Panels back in 2009, yet without preventative medical care, we condemn our fellow Americans to deaths in ER when it is too late to save them from their bad decisions and lack of knowledge on how to care for themselves.
    Education is the best answer to reducing healthcare, civility is the best way to talk about it.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    A tad racist of you to assume that all illegal aliens are Latinos, wouldn’t you say?

    I thought it was Sibelius who said no lung transplant for that little girl—when did she get a job with an insurance company?

    Because @DrCanuck, most Americans are like sheep. They can’t think for themselves.

    @ConserveGov

    You are describing the system that was in place for so many years. Chances are you are already benefitting from the ACA and just don’t realize it. The local hospital estimates it will save them alone over $5 million/year in “free medical care” now given to those who cannot pay.

  14. ConserveGov

    ConserveGov said, about 3 years ago

    Liberals like to say we should all help the poor, but when it comes to their own household income, they sing another tune.
    Maybe that’s why the Biden’s gave on average $369 a year for a decade to charity.
    All talk.
