    Lies? About something they passed without knowing what was in it?

    @Dale Netherton

    Lying out of ignorance is still lying. It’s the Republican approach to women, rape and pregnancy, taxing the rich, the needs of the poor and the elderly, etc. If we could somehow harness even a fraction of the energy behind these GOP lies, we could stop drilling for oil.

    The only thing wrong with the Affordable Care Act is that it doesn’t go fare enough.
    When will idiot Americans learn that they have one of the most expensive and least successful health care (which really ought to be “care” in scare quotes) systems in the developed world.

    ‘far’ not ‘fare’ (early morning for me)

    How is it working – Yes people love to have others forced to pay for the services they got – Who would have thought.

    But it won’t be sustainable. More and More people who are marginally employable now will find that they aren’t worth their salary when they cost healthcare on top of their pay.

    This is a disaster and Notice that Obama slowed down the part that would have caused unemployment until after the 2014 election.

    You could have gotten an annual checkup last year… and the year before and the year before. Has nothing to do with Obamacare.

    Mr. Luckovich, would you care to cite that data source or indicate what panels are saying such garbage. If it’s working, then how come hospitals are laying off in record numbers (my wife is a nurse) and why doctors are saying that they’ll retire much earlier than anticipated. The only thing that’s working about is that it’s proving to be the failure and disaster that was forecast by conservatives.

    My one data point shows that my healthcare costs went up $100/month thanks to Obamacare. So if it is supposed to make health insurance more expensive, it’s working!

    You must live in a Republican controlled state that keeps voting to delay the ACA.
    Like Florida.

    When Republican Governors and state legislatures delay and fight Obamacare, then premiums go up, these guys blame Obama?
    They should look in the mirror to see why premiums went up.
    The FL legislature turned down $51 Billion in Federal money for Medicaid. Now someone has to pay for that.

    1. Most of the ACA hadn’t begun to kick in before insurance companies raised rates to “hedge their bets” (remember THEY are “the house”, and can’t lose to begin with!).

    2. They should have had “single payer” as the core of the bill,not the Republican plan to hand more profit to insurance and corporate “medicine” circles. The thing they hate in the bill is that it says 80% of premiums must go to actual health care, and if exceeded, rebates must be given to the insured.

    3. Wake UP folks!! Almost any bill over 4 pages in length has NOT BEEN READ in its entirety by the illiterate “TEA party” folks elected to the House and Senate. Even the BEST, from BOTH PARTIES read only about 10% of what they vote on! These huge bills, have so many riders and “earmarks”(yes they’re still used) that nobody can understand what they all say, especially as much of the language is like: “paragraph 3 of bill”XXX: will be changed to say “NOT” instead of “SHALL”. Meaning that in some cases, members or their staffs may actually have to go over in some cases, 2-30 different pieces of legislation to track down what a simple sentence is actually doing to previous laws!!

    The game is no longer just a matter of rhetoric, but outright lies and deception, quite intentionally.
