    Only the libs like Rogers and the low IQ posters on this site who claimed BarryCare would be great are surprised by this disaster.

    It is a new system, designed to do truly large and complicated things, so it is still far too early to tell if it truly is such a disaster as your and others like you seem to want it to be. There is no reason why individual problems with such a system can not be fixed by adjusting the law itself by a Congress willing to work together for compromise. But it will never be fixed by those who simply wish to see it destroyed!

    Do you or anyone else like you have any kind of a better system? And, as our over all health care system before this is rated number 38th in the world, behind such advanced industrial giants as Costa Rica, but is still the number one in the world in cost, please do not even suggest that we just go along with no changes at all. There are an estimated 45,000 Americans that die annually because they have no insurance at all. By the time many medical conditions that could be cured by early doctor visits have reached the level that only emergency room care is all that is left, these people (more than highway and homicide deaths put together) are doomed. Is that what you wish to continue for your fellow hard working middle class Americans?

    We all agree that the rollout was not a success, particularly in red states where the government is fighting really hard to keep the poor ignorant of their new lifeline. But the bit about the death panels and 3 trillion dollars is complete, utter, unsubstantiated hogwash, and you should be ashamed to repeat it here. The ACA is paid for with taxes and substantial cost reduction, and the CBO still says it takes a big chunk off the deficit. If Obamacare really is bad, why do conservatives have to lie about it when they make their case? Did you read Eric Stein’s Salon piece about the three couples on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show last week who all lied about their Obamacare problems? It was embarrassing how transparently false their arguments were, but some conservatives actually believe this stuff.

    I guess you would like the republican alternative better, oh wait.

    Its not single payer, but it is better than the alternative which is nothing.

    Does anyone remember how difficult it was to bring Medicare up in 1965? It will take 2 to 4 years to get ACA to work as intended. Even then there will be some rough spots for awhile.

    Ignorance is so ugly. The vast majority of the poor are poor because they were born into poor families. The vast majority of the very wealthy are very wealthy because they were born into very wealthy families. There’s no one to blame for that; it’s just how it is. The difference is the very wealthy have the ability to help the poor, and make things better for everyone, but are obsessed with keeping it all, even though most of it is hidden away offshore in secret bank accounts. The very wealthy collect and hoard their money. The more they got it through inheritance, the more they hoard it. The poor are denigrated for being poor.
    As to the rest of your comment, I must assume that you are wrong because most of everything you post is wrong. Wanting something to be a certain way only makes it fact in your own muddled mind.
    To quote NeoConMan: Boy, I’m with you; I hope the whole Obamacare thing fails and the economy tanks and America goes entirely down the toilet.

    Because then we can blame Obama.
    I think that’s pretty much where you are.

    breitbart??? Are kidding me? You’re trying to support your lunacy by means of a totally discredited source. Runs neck to neck with that other beacon of credibility, the drudge report.

    The only reason the far right wants that ACA to fail is so they can blame a failure on Obama. Assuming it succeeds which in time I think it will Obama will go down in the history books like FDR for implementing a program designed to give everyone affordable health coverage. Why anyone would otherwise want this program to fail is beyond me. If you don’t like it make some suggestions to help make it a success.

    Alan Greyson had it correct when he revealed the republican plan: Don’t get sick, and if you do, die quickly.

    But, but, but, the German and general European health care system is single payer, which is an even greater socialist anathema to the ultra conservatives here and elsewhere. Do you think such a sensible system could ever get passed in the current atmosphere of the US?

    By the way, NeoConMan is the most incredibly sarcastic character on these boards, I like him a lot!!

    Agree! They really only support soldiers while they can still fight. Once old or infirm, they would really just like for them to go away. It’s the same plan they have for the homeless.

    You are the ignorant one! REALLY? Speaking of snappy comebacks…How about “Everything you say bounces off me and sticks to you!” Your turn.

    At this particular time it would seem that all of our usual ultra conservatives are lashing out. It is kind of sad really, as they are neither stupid nor uneducated. They just absolutely follow a particular ideology so closely that they become totally nasty about it after awhile. If they would just come out with reasonable facts, they would make much more impact. And the name calling and twisting of names is not conducive to reasonable debate either. I will admit that there are times when I too am tempted to do the same at times, but I will continue to force myself to be relatively moderate, even though I do lean to the liberal side of things.
    If such people would tone down the troll like rhetoric, then we might all get along much better!!
