    And then, as the story goes, he tried it and like it.

    Very good, Rob, perfect in fact!

    There is nothing wrong with Congress modifying a program already created by a bill they have already passed. They would do this to correct problems with what they have already created. And, like all such large governmental efforts (or large private efforts for that matter), there WILL be problems. This will be the legitimate duty of Congress with the ACA, just as it has always been with any other program!


    But, to just totally shut such a program down that potentially has so much benefit to so many Americans, and then to have to start the whole legislative process over again, would be just unconscionable for Congress. If this is too hard for some in Congress (the tea party types for instance), then perhaps in 2014 it would be time for their actual employer in the people of the United States to consider their voluntary retirement, and elect more reasonable representatives. Representatives that would be more willing to actually work for all of the people of the US, and not just those in the financial end of the Health Care industry!!!

    Or, am I being too hopeful here?

    “Or, am I being too hopeful here?”


    Emma Goldman answered that question.

    “Moderate” GOP? Any of those left? What we have are
    1. Conservatives
    2. Hardline conservatives
    3. Birchers
    4. Tin-hat conspiracy nutjobs.
    And the median is somewhere between 2 and 3 and moving down.
    They purged the party of all true moderates some time ago. When even Orrin Hatch moved right to counter a Tea Party threat in a primary — Orrin Hatch!! — we are not talking about left, right, and moderate anymore. We’re talking about a party that would have found Ronald Reagan a dangerous radical.

    obviously hatch and McCain – just to name two, are just RINO, and need to be excommunicated from the party.

    I’m afraid the American people are deeper asleep now than they were then.

    We know what’s in the bill, Stevie. It’s a pretty good bill, the best one we’ll ever get. And if it REALLY had problems, Cruz could have complained about those actual problems. HE wouldn’t have had to lie about the IRS, lie about government control, lie about the doctors, lie about the death panels, lie about price increases, lie about lack of access, and complain about parts of the bill that only exist in Republican fantasy-land. Obamacare will happen, and every single disaster prediction made by Cruz will quietly fold its tent and sneak away. Remember this when Cruz asks for your hard-earned cash.

    only problem with that, Paj, is that it WON’t be started over…the need for health care reform will be ignored…AGAIN

    Ted Cruz is supporting exactly one thing: The ambitions of Ted Cruz. Ride that bandwagon if you want, but don’t be surprised if you get shoved off when you’re no longer useful.

    Republicans haven’t changed from a stance of smaller government, fiscal responsibility and social conservatism. The perception of what moderate is has. After years of moving in one direction, it’s bound to bounce back a bit.

    “Republicans haven’t changed from a stance of smaller government, fiscal responsibility and social conservatism.”

    I agree that the above represents their platform, and if their actions matched their words, I would become a republican, as would some posters here. Smaller Government? Let’s start with Homeland Security, one of the largest and most expensive expansions of government ever foisted on our country. Fiscal Responsibility? How about 3000 tanks being built, ready to be shipped to the Nevada desert forever, never to be used, just so some people in Ohio can keep their jobs (we all know how important Ohio is). And don’t forget Star Wars: a never-ending investment that will never have the ability to counter a threat that is less and less likely. Face it: if you can cause mayhem with a backpack in a crowd, or a suitcase with a small nuke, why spend the money and time to send missiles, instantly identifying the perpetrator while giving us time to react? And Social Conservatism does not equal Fundamentalist Christianity.

    I truly do hope that one day the Republican party lives up to its words. Today, however, it misses them by a Country Mile.

    It’s always fun when the Progressives don’t get it. They are so cute when they are confused.

    The GOP is fighting with the Tea Party, the regressives are in a state of confusion.

    The ACA has been made law & declared Constitutional. It is the conservative approach to health care reform, proposed complete with the mandate by Stuart Butler of the Heritage Foundation.

    The GOP does not want any reform. Whether it is because they’re terrified Obama will get credit for their idea or if they are truly so mean spirited, I cannot say.

    What is clear, is that there would be no conservative replacement if were repealed. Any rational conservative would work on making the ACA more affordable & more efficient.
