    I don’t get it. Are you suggesting the President isn’t feeling a sense of urgency?

    Glad to see you praising the drone program.(About the only thing right Barry has done).
    As for “getting out the vote”, all he did was say "vote for me and get free stuff!.
    Not exactly hi-tech….

    If Obama is trying to kill the private insurance industry, why is their stock at record high levels, and why is Obama counting his baksheesh from the private insurance companies?

    Obama tried to sell the ACA to the Tea types: ‘Now, every poor person can go to any hospital and get totally free care. But once we have the ACA, they’ll have to pay for it.’ But the Tea types didn’t buy it. ‘There will be totally free care for everyone too lazy to work, and Death Panels for everyone else.’ The huge number of voters on Medicare panicked and ran to their doctors: ‘Does this mean I can’t get any more chemo?’ ‘No. Same as before.’ Panic over, they finally figured out the Tea attacks on the ACA were pure, unadulterated bovine faecal matter. Now, when they hear attacks not so easily refuted, they don’t believe them, either, and figure the ACA must be providing their grandchildren with AC.

    (Which is the problem with bald-faced lies when the truth might have been a much more effective critique.)

    I said MEDICARE. Can you read?

    Only about 5% of Americans had individual insurance policies, and many were adversely affected.

    But I said MEDICARE. Which is a large number of voters who usually vote. And they did NOT lose anything (so far) from the ACA.

    ‘Wow. There oranges are sure juicy.’ ‘Liar. My apple is dry.’

    Health care costs, and consequently health care insurance, have risen precisely because of national health care. Even collecting from every taxpaying person and caring for only those 65 and over, a nationalized system has burdened the care system beyond its means to pay. So it mandates its costs, telling health care providers what they will take for payment, and the remainder is taken up in rising costs that are paid by actual paying customers, usually through insurance, which then raises its rates. To maintain affordable rates and a customer base, they must adopt risk management, not paying for experimental treatments, dropping high risk customers and refusing people with pre-existing conditions. Private health care cannot co-exist with the predatory parasite of a national health plan unless it caters only to the wealthy and charges exorbitant rates, or if national care actually pays full market rates for care. But nobody would stand for that, if they knew the actual cost of national health. Millionaires will still be able to get private care from physicians they choose for themselves, and do so without having to tell the gatekeepers of the clinic whether they have a gun in the house and if it is kept loaded before they can be accepted as a patient. An efficient nationalized health care system will cut costs by cutting care. But it will only be people for whom the care they desire would be wasteful, so I’m sure that most of the caring, concerned national health care advocates will be fine with it.
