    The cons shut down the govt, the dems opened health care.
    Says it all.

    Yep, health care, just like all the other civilized and industrialized first world countries of the world. Except that it is not really single payer, and so really is not directly paid for by the government. As such as yourself so incorrectly state, both the individual and the health care maintenance organizations will be paying, with the back up of the government in those cases where this is a true hardship on the American people, just as such programs have always been!! If you do not like that, then there is always the ultra conservative paradise of Somalia!!

    Exactly.

    The World would really be quite happy if the USA caught up to supplying the basic social provisions as done in nearly every country in the world for decades.

    The Supreme Court ruled that mandatory insurance premiums paid to private insurance companies is a legitimate tax. It ruled that government subsidies for the poor, if mandated by a Federal law, were illegitimate.


    So there will be NO cost to the government except in those states that vote to allow those subsidies.

    Not free. Or haven’t you noticed? That’s why this was a REPUBLICAN plan, thought up at the Heritage Foundation and implemented first by Romney in Massachusetts.

    I have a – maybe stupid – question. Today is October 2nd. So, if someone actually SIGNED an insurance policy yesterday, what would a one-year-delay to Obamacare mean for him? In other words: How can you “delay” something that has already started? But i guess that’s no concern to the GOP/TEA-party, they also tried to defund it in spite of the fact that it’s mandatory spending.

    2014 will be a VERY interesting midterm election, can’t wait for all the soundbites used in the ads. That is, if America and the world still exist. Paul Ryan announced today that he thinks it’s an excellent idea to tie the budget to the debt limit. And since Obamacare is – somehow – part of the budget for the GOP (they offered to go to a budget-conference as a last minute measure) that means they WILLl tie Obamacare to the world-economy-ending failure to raise the debt limit.

    I got food for six weeks at home at any given moment but i think i might stock up a bit if this stupid behavior goes on…

    What do you mean “free”??? They still have to pay premiums.

    I wonder how many “Young People” waded through all the glitches and denial of access did try to sign up to pay 100$ a month for coverage they think they will never use? And how many know that Obama hired 16,000 new IRS agents to find out if they did or did not sign up. And that magical “return check” that mommy government pays them each year will be a lot less if they do not sign up?

    Canadians don’t understand Ted Cruz’s health-care battle

    By

    When you’re being forced to endure another rabid Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) soliloquy on Obamacare’s threat to human freedom, it’s easy to forget how absurd our health-care debate seems to the rest of the civilized world. That’s why it’s bracing to check in with red-blooded, high testosterone capitalists north of the border in Canada — business leaders who love Canada’s single-payer system (a regime far to the “left” of Obamacare) and see it as perfectly consistent with free market capitalism.

    Pretty much.

    I make so little that just to even get on a “bronze” plan that I’ll be looking at paying 50% – 80% of my annual salary just to cover the premiums. I’m too poor to qualify for a subsidy, and so unless I come into a large sum of money or find a high-paying job overnight I’m in major financial trouble.

    @MortyForTyrant So, if someone actually SIGNED an insurance policy yesterday, what would a one-year-delay to Obamacare mean for him?"

    i would mean a one year less of the red tape he will have to use in order to collect. Of course the IRS is not looking at him right now. If he did not sign up in the allotted time, the new 16,000 IRS agents will check to see if he how much of that magically return check he is allowed to keep.
    So the delay I guess is only in how much back log the IRS will have before they can pass judgement if you are paying the right amount for your health insurance.

    Yes, stock up some more. Of course you are planning on sharing your stored food with the “less fortune” if there is a need. God bless you..

    More right wing spin and lies, that’s “wtf.” You do realize that by republican logic, they sent back essentially the same bill over and over again, with little or no change, but they compromised by sending the same bill back to the Senate. And because the Senate voted on and defeated the bill, the Senate is shutting down the government, you understand that right-wing logic right? Of course you do, you are a well-reasoned, thinking member so you understand exactly what the republicans are doing. Too bad more of society wasn’t of your caliber, able to think for themselves instead of sucking up their party’s propaganda sound bites.

    I wonder which expelled member is reincarnated in enoki.
