    You almost got the last panel right, except the hope is that once more and more people on the left realize what a disaster O-care really is, that sanity will prevail and the vote will swing in favor or repealling.

    Panel 4: Change “Sanity” to “Futility”.

    Or perhaps, just perhaps, real sanity will prevail, and possibly enough Republican Moderates and Democrat Moderates will be elected in 2014 to form a compromise and vote through real health care reform in the manner of the rest of the industrialized world. The current health care law could be easily modified to do this.


    Of course, this would mean placing the actual welfare of the American people ahead of the incredibly wealthy health insurance industry, and I do not know if that would even be possible, let alone doable, but one can indeed at least hope and pray it would be. And it might be very well impossible with certain highly acrimonious elements now in Congress!!

    RE: Panel 4, we could shorten it all by saying, Congress = Futility!

    The GOP have presented no ideas on healthcare, other than Obamacare itself. Now that they’ve decided that their idea is an attack on freedom, all they’ve got is “continue to let sick Americans die in poverty.” The American people aren’t with you on this one, guys. They love every element of Obamacare, except that Republican voters can be convinced that they don’t like the “Obama” part. Once it starts working, it will be impossible to repeal without having a plan in place that improves on it.

    “They love every element of Obamacare,”

    I don’t know where you are getting your information, ARodney, but there are a bunch of polls out there that contradict that in a big way.

    “…the hope is that once more and more people on the left realize what a disaster O-care really is…”

    I keep seeing these grand pronouncements on how disastrous “Obamacare” will be, yet I never see anyone say what specifically will cause disaster. Please enlighten us. Give one specific example of how it will be so disastrous.

    Example: Don’t just give the generic “our rates will double” mantra. Tell us how “Obamacare” will cause the rates to double. Tell us how it will have any effect other than it had when Republican Mitt Romney instituted it in MA.

    The previous health system was failing exponentially. When the most needy people are routinely denied coverage, they will either stay home and die, or they will present to the emergency room for “free” care, which is far more costly. How hard is it to understand that meds for diabetes are cheaper than amputations, dialysis, and the other consequences of poor treatment?

    Obamacare is a band-aid, which will fail in the future as well. But we cannot go back to the previous system and expect it to work, or for it to save us money. We must replace Obamacare with Single Payer. It is the eventual answer, and the only question is how long it will take for the brain-deads in Congress to understand that.

    I don’t have a problem with changing our system. Voting to scuttle it, especially 3 dozen times, is a waste of our tax dollars. It’s time to expect actual work to come out of Congress. We pay them way too much to allow them to continue to cost us more by doing nothing about anything.

    Robert, if you can identify any ’moderate’ Republicans, could you please point them out?
    -
    I share your hope, but I believe Republicans have purged their party of moderates.
    -
    I fear you won’t find any moderate Republicans any more than you will be able to identify a wealth creator.

    ‘Obamacare may turn out to be a disaster but that doesn’t make the clusterfracked system we currently have acceptable or superior. Most righties won’t accept that free markets don’t work if the customers can’t say no and other is no alternative. Which mean righties can’t accept that medicare for all is the only real solution.’
    -
    One of the big issues that I think is overlooked is that Republicans DO NOT WANT a solution. They do not want ordinary people to get good health care, especially poor people and, you know, those people.
    -
    They had every opportunity to participate in health care reform and still do, but they have not advanced any proposals to improve health care.
    -
    Remember, when the debate was in progress, Republicans advanced one idea, with seven senate sponsors. When Obama supported the idea, Republicans announced that they would filibuster their own proposal.

    I am sorry, but that statement is nowhere to be found within my only other post on this thread. I think that particular statement was by the far more ultra conservative Ken M in the first post on this particular thread As you are a relatively moderate poster on here, no apology is needed, but I did think I should set the record straight at least!!
