    I respectfully disagree, Harley.
    We survived it, but according to the head of the IMF, if the US Congress had done its job of working together the US and world economy would be an estimated 4% higher than it is today. Congress is not only holding back our nation, they are holding back the planet.
    As far as your assertion that the ACA is not supported by MOST Americans, it apparently depends on how informed an individual American is and where they get their information about the program.
    I am on record, ad nauseum, that the bill is deeply flawed and needs our legislators to work with experts in the fields of medicine, insurance, and efficiency in a civil and respectful bipartisan manner to fix it. I’ve seen no credible information that it will cause carnage, certainly not on the scale of the Congress failing to do its job to keep the economy on track and finding ways to encourage the ‘job creators’ to put our neighbors to work at jobs that pay living wages.
    The following are just a small sampling of the sites that indicate the ACA has value despite the criticism it receives.
    I am truly sorry our leaders, Congress and POTUS alike, are unable to work together, and would welcome hearing your ideas on what should be done to keep medical costs from surpassing our GDP as predicted by the 2020s. Feel free to supply links as my mind is open to solutions that don’t result in bullets to the brain. Really stupid cartoon Mr. Arial gives us, especially after the shootings in DC.

    The IMF?


    OK, well Al Gore and his “experts” claimed that it was “possible” that by 2013 there would be no ice in the arctic during the summer. What’s the latest report from the UN scientists? What’s that? Mistaken????

    Yes one of the biggest words in the world IF

    But at least you agree that the law as it is needs massive changes to be viable. Personally, I would like to see that single payer system …. if we could just eliminate all the graft, corruption and dishonesty in DC……….

    The problem is that even if the House does pass a budget, the one they are trying to pass, the Democrats in the Senate are against it. So Ariail you need a j@ck@ss in there as well.

    Thank you, Bruce. Your replies to me are almost always thoughtful and your intelligence and willingness to actually discuss issues and provide citations is too rare in this forum and much appreciated.
    I used the word estimated simply because I didn’t want to be taken to task for being wrong and also didn’t want to look up the article from last month. Please excuse my laziness.
    The example you use of ‘science’ and the Int’l community being wrong reminds one that our own NOAA predicted a record hurricane season with several landfalls.
    Science is not always right, and humans, particularly humans with their own agendas, are right even more rarely.
    I’ve never fully understood the single payer system and have not yet looked it up, but if you can provide an objective link, I’ll educate myself on it. As far as eliminating the graft, corruption, and dishonesty goes…in DC, and every other capital city and mayoral office in our nation, I’m walking beside you brother.
    I read you often and agree with you more often than you might imagine. Though, since you brought it up, I do believe Climate Change to be a threat that we could address if we chose to do so. However, I’m sure another cartoon will give us a chance to debate that further soon.
    Thank you again for your reply, and your patience with this progressive moderate(aka tree hugging, demotard, liberal tool… or so I’ve been told)

    “I saw a poll the other day that showed that the majority of Americans think shutting down the government is not a bad thing.”

    But, that doesn’t make it a good thing.

    I hope and pray for that all the time. I used to be a republican until Reagan and the ones since then have been in power. They are all trying to out-extreme each other. My governor is one of the worst.

    Bush spent 3 times the amount of time away than Obama has.

    wabbit bush going to camp david or crawford cost the gov little when compared to costa del sol or Bahama island and the $$$ were spent in the USA

    No, since ACA is the law (and ratified by A republican Supreme Court), if you say don’t fund it, YOU are the one shutting down the government.

    this is what is happening where I live. Kansas is blood red and Brownback is too. He has blocked medicaid so that the most needy may have to pay more than the less needy.
    It doesn’t make sense.
    Of course, the ACA will work well in the blue states and will be hosed up in the red ones.
