    “till we go bankrupt.”


    ‘There are smoke signals from groups all around us, and as I read them, they mean we’re in big trouble, Tonto.‘


    ’What you mean “we”, paleface?’

    I may be wrong, but if one lost their insurance due to Obamacare, couldn’t they sue the government?

    So, complain and do nothing. Or work on a fix. Survey says: Complain and Do Nothing. Audience applause. Host kisses female contestant. Promise of a home version of Our Game. Credits.

    Seriously? That’s your criteria here? He’s better than Bush?

    Wow. Way to reach for the stars there.

    Is it possible that the big wealthy insurance companies wish to kill our ACA ?
    If so, no surprise…and it figures.

    He is a master at regurgitating liberal talking points. And blaming Bush is basic.

    Obamacare, one big lie after another! And a big percent of Libs still ignore that Obama and the Clintons are liars.

    I’m one of those who looks at both sides and sees good and bad. I’m also one of those who believes the person we vote into office should be more than ‘well he’s better than the last looser’. Obama has been an awful president. The fact that Bush may have been a worse one means nothing.

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Obama just drove us a little closer.

    Your question seems to assume that Big Business can’t field a candidate who can win popular election. Also, and I apologize if I am incorrect in my assumptions, I am inferring that you think Obama does not have the backing of the ‘1%’. That’s not true. He received quite a bit in financial support from Wall Street. Lastly, you seem to be expanding upon the notion that the ‘1%’ are somehow to blame or are some heartless machine. I don’t buy into that mythos, or at least not all of it. Let’s assume that the 1% are spending money to buy political power and influence (and I don’t doubt that there is some of this going on). How does that excuse any politician who accepts their funds? Obama took their funds. How is he different? And yes, the same can be said of politicians on both sides of the aisle.

    I love how the “Free Market” crowd is agahst when they are asked to join in the freedom.
    .
    If your employer cuts your insurance, what keeps you working for him? Vote with your feet and go to an employer that offers health benefits. Because, if your employer cuts your benies and then keeps the savings for himself, then you just got a pay cut.
    .
    Did somebody repeal the law of supply and demand? If everybody starts walking out of your company and going to work for someone who pays more, what will your empoyer NEED to do? He will NEED to start paying more, because the way an employer makes money is he pays you $1 for labor that he sells for $2.
    .
    If he doesn’t have you providing the labor, he won’t have the widgets to sell for $2.
    .
    My idiot nephew talked about shifting all the employees to part time at the Insurance agency that has been his family business for about 6 generations. His father told him right off that the value of a secure workforce was far greater than the cost of health care.
    .
    It looks tempting, and there will be companies that do it, but then “The Free Market” will grab them by the scruff of the neck and give them a good shake. They’ll be back to offering subsidized healthcare to full time employees.
    .
    Why? Because it costs less Dollars than actual pay. The Company can buy insurance for 90% of what it costs the employee. So the company can pay the full premium and the employee gets a (call it $12,000; $1,000 per month) benefit that only cost the employer $900. In essence he’s buying it wholesale and delivering it to the employee at retail. (If he splits it with you then he’s getting a bigger percentage discount.)
    .
    Stop panicking, stop listening to fear mongers, grow up and understand what is going on around you.
    .
    And stop being so hypocritical: On the one hand you’re all “They should have let the banks fail, they should have let Freddie and Fannie fail, they should have let the autos fail!” Because we would have been better off. But the second there is a threat that you will be put to any economic dislocation, you’re all “Not In My Back Yard!”

    I apologize for the assumption. Given the choice, I would prefer president of the people. ALL of the people. No one social group, rich or poor, should be the focus of a government.

    At this point though, I would settle for a president who took responsibility for his actions. That’s something we have not had in a long, long time.

    Not easily placated. Just desperate.
