    Yeah, Republicans know just how to improve health care. And any day now they’re going to specify what ought to be done.
    -
    Just as soon as they abolish minimum wage.

    The PPACA makes me think of the adage about too many cooks.

    The Light at the End of the Tunnel represents Politicians delivering basic healthcare to women.

    It would be nice to think you are right, Mr Connelly. It seems more likely that the light coming down the tracks more likely represents another Congressional train wreck about to happen.
    Congress could provide ideas that would improve this health care plan based on a Republican idea, but instead of providing ideas, Republicans have used hundreds of man hours in order to make ALL health care ideas go away without providing a single option other than extinction of ALL health care as well as every other safety net, necessary AND superfluous, they can put forward.
    Democrats treat entitlements the way Republicans treat gun laws. If one entitlement/gun right is effected, then ALL entitlements/gun rights are effected.
    This bipartisan lock down is neither civil or respectful and like the train wreck in Ontario that killed 50 people because of the negligence of a few, people will suffer.
    Respectfully,

    OK here is something to think about. The act swas passed and signed Oct 3, 2008 by a democrat controlled congress.

    “The bill authorizes $700 billion for the program. The Treasury Secretary has immediate access to the first $250 billion. Following that, an additional $100 billion can be authorized by the President. For the last $350 billion, the President must notify Congress of the intention to grant the additional funding to the Treasury; Congress then has 15 days to pass a resolution disallowing the authority. If Congress fails to pass a resolution opposing the funding within 15 days, or if the resolution passes, but is vetoed by the President, and Congress does not have enough votes to override the veto, the Treasury will receive the final $350 billion.”

    That isn’t to say the Bush was an innocent. But then all politicians are liars and crooks IMO.

    Here is a simi-current followup.

    If forcing businesses at financial gunpoint to pay for oral contraceptives that increase liver, breast, and cervical cancer in women is “healthcare for women,” then women should probably avoid healthcare.

    News — a majority of Americans, even John McCain wanted Obamacare. They still want every last one of the provisions in the bill. They’re worried because of lies being told about not being able to choose your doctor, or Washington being involved (it’s still private insurance). But to assume that people want NO health reform is to ignore the actual polling on health care.

    Well, mine was affordable. It has since gone up, and may even cause the coverage for my family to cost extra. Yes we want affordable health coverage, but not on our backs. Who was going to pay for those who end up on it because they can’t afford it? I do not know why you are not covered by your employer if you are not or why it costs them so much, but it will not be affordable to me the way it stands. That was why the insurance companies tried to get as much money pocketed in the last 2 yrs as they could. Doctors are going to be forced to take on more medi-cal / medi-care patients with lower reimbursement for them. If they choose to go private it will drive up the prices allowing only the rich to afford the best care. I am in California and several Health insurance companies are pulling out or increasing the cost in order to make money or have people go to a different insurance.

    The minimum wage should be eliminated.

    " I guess it’s good to be the king."

    Obama fought that thing until people started screaming he’d promised to settle the health care issue within the first year of his administration.

    You can thank your obstruction merchants for the RomneyCare bill. Nothing is more important to the GOP except seeing the ‘libruls’ fail. Well, and making sure their corporate masters continue to have the means to exploit their constituents.

    The GOP has labeled this travesty ‘ObamaCare’ to obscure the fact that it was a GOP bill that should rightly be called ‘RomneyCare’.

    Still, when have the Dems ever corrected anything they perceived the GOP did wrong? What we need is a new government. This one has devolved into fascist anarchy, and by ‘this government’ I mean both parties.
