    This is an excellent Cartoon and a harbinger of what is too come.

    When Obamacare collapses under it’s own weight (too many ill and too few healthy buying health insurance) and the premiums rise beyond the affordability of anyone; the Democrats will point to its failure and say – See!!! This is why we need a single payer system.

    That has been there plan all along. To get a burgeoning group of government recipients accustomed to being cared for and then tell them the system just isn’t workable unless we force all those rich bastards into the same boat with you.

    Obama will go down in History as THE WORST President we have had – And I survived Carter’s Disastrous policies.

    It will be hard to beat getting into three wars, spending trillions of dollars killing and injuring hundreds of thousands. Mission Accomplished.

    Soooo then… a single payer universal health care system that eliminates a less health care for more profit system.

    Excellent cartoon.
    But the 7.l million government number is highly suspect…
    Gallup Poll was quoted in a recent news article, and a genuine and unbiased survey would prove Obama and his Democratic administration have once again lied about a number the public has an interest in….unemployment…etc.
    Obamacare is definitely without any doubt the 2014 Titanic, and B.H.Obama is the Captain.

    The problem with the Obamanation’s Titanic is that the passengers are not the only ones who will go down, it will drag the rest of the nation along with it, even those able to directly avoid this idiocy.

    @Trusted Mechanic – Actually; yes. Whether you get it as part of your pay package with work or you purchase it in the market – Yes you should only get it if you are paying for it.

    When we stop cost shifting peoples health care through Medicaid, Medicare, and forcing hospitals to treat the indigent. Health care will become a reasonable cost and most (not all) will be able to afford it.

    Today, health insurance is so expensive because the government forces hospitals to take a low fee for handling it’s wards and to stay in business they have to push the cost onto all of us with private insurance.

    The government shouldn’t be in the business of providing freebies at the expense of other taxpayers: Homes, cars, food, etc.

    No, Trusted; they are not necessarily two sides of the same coin, and no one wants to deprive anyone of health insurance. (Although, may I point out that having health insurance is no guarantee that your particular illness will be covered to the limit; witness people with health coverage who have still been denied payment for treatment and died because of lack of that treatment.) But two wrongs do not make a right, and getting one segment of the population covered by forcing those who do not need it to buy it is not a solution. And you want to talk Medi-Care/Cade and Social Security? Everyone will use those at some point. Car insurance? No one forces you to drive; no one forces you to buy car insurance if you don’t; and if you do drive you can be self-insured with no penalty, at least in this state.

    Republicans have had years to improve AHC, but voted 52 times for nothing. They all knew the vote would go nowhere but they wasted years anyway.They only know how to sink the ship, not improve it.

    Sorry, but unless Obama pushes the “Button”. there is little else he can do to take the title away from the reigning champ, George W. Bush.

    There is a Republican submarine just ahead, at periscope depth.

    @JoeCoot – Wow aren’t you partisan. I’m not criticizing Jimmy Carter because he was a Democrat. I’m criticizing him because of his disastrous foreign and economic policies that lead to Rampant Inflation, A general malaise in the economy and a foreign policy that lessened our influence around the world. At one time I was able to buy a CD for 16.2% which means inflation was about 16% at the time.
    Everybody felt poor and hopeless. 2 Years later with the same Economic and World situation – Ronald Reagan had the economy going great and eventually caused the downfall of the Soviet Empire. (What a difference the man in the office makes). Oh, did I mention he did that with a recalcitrant Democratic House and Senate?

    As for GW Bush – You may not like him and I certainly didn’t like all of his policies i.e. waterboarding but during his time in office the Economy was booming and everyone was working. Right up until the last year.

    And I daresay he would have brought us out of him a damn site faster then the looter in chief we currently endure. Because he would have trusted and unleashed the creativity and energy of the free market.

    Odumbo’s solution was to burden all of us with the cost of taking care of the lazy and the stupid. His regulations and largess caused many investors to pull back until they were sure he wouldn’t steal from them. They still aren’t sure so we are still waiting for investors to re-enter the market.

    You can apologize for Obama’s failed policies all day long but it doesn’t change the fact that he is currently harming the country and will continue to harm the country until we get him out of office or a Republican Senate (whichever comes first).

    “Republicans have had years to improve AHC,…”

    The Democrats also know that there are serious flaws in the PPACA and have done nothing to correct those flaws.

    Did any of you guys pay for health insurance before this, or did you just go to the emergency room for the “free” health care and ignore the bills they sent you?
