    Physically? Perhaps. Fiscally? I have my doubts.

    Yes. Obamacare is going to make my health insurance even more complicated than the private madmen who are running the company now.

    Congrats. This is the most evil cartoon I’ve seen in a long time.

    “Evil” is a moral statement. The cartoon is political statement. Don’t sermonize. Engage in debate.

    What’s to debate? Ramirez doesn’t make arguments, he just displays his ignorance and prejudice. (But he does draw well.) There are lots of good arguments for and against Obamacare, in general and in particular, but you won’t see them here. Personally, I don’t much like Obamacare, because it perpetuates too much that’s bad in the old system.

    Yeah, it was #3 out of 4 possible options…#1 was universal health care (what Obama wanted), #2 was expanding Medicaid to include everyone (next on Obama’s list), #3 was what became the ACA (what the Heritage Foundation and Newt Gingrich proposed in 1994 as a counter to Clinton’s proposal), and #4 was doing nothing.

    The ACA is a Republican idea, so of course the Republicans hate it.

    Have I forgotten 9/11? No, I have a vivid memory of it but what does that have to do with Iraq?

    “Obamacare is going to make my health insurance even more complicated than the private madmen who are running the company now.”

    They are the same private madmen. Since Obamacare requires you purchase private insurance, the same people who have been raising your premiums and reducing your coverage every six months will still be able to ply their trade.

    Obamacare is to healthcare the same as raising the debt ceiling is to fixing the deficit. It keeps the system from failing immediately, but is not a long-term solution. Let me tell you from experience: doctors want out of health care in general, regardless. As health care costs go out of control, only one group of people takes a hit, and that’s the people who are paid to keep you healthy. Insurance company executives and workers all get increased pay, benefits, and vacation. Stockholders get dividends. Doctors and hospitals get more responsibility and less pay. Obamacare did not start that; it’s been going on since the early 80s, and will not stop until insurance companies are not part of health care. Single payer is the only way to go, and it’s only a matter of time until the powers that be will have to move to it, regardless of how much bribery the insurance industry provides.

    And now the Democrats are voting to turn over a large portion of it, or at least leading the way.
