    I wonder what would have happened had the ACA been written in bipartisan fashion with input from experts in the fields related to healthcare and from hospitals that are using best practices to great advantage. I wonder if the ACA had been funded and given the manpower needed if these problems would have been present at roll out.
    I wonder if Congress will ever be able to work together again in a bipartisan fashion.
    Curiously,

    The problem with “a bipartisan fashion” was that the Republicans weren’t interested in reform of health insurance. Now if you had got together a panel of non-political experts in health care, they might have been able to look over the various plans in use (the Canadian single-payer system, the Swiss private-but-no-profit-for-a-basic-plan system, and so on), and they could have made a recommendation. But then the Republicans would have said no.

    I personally think the only way the 2 parties would work together is with strict term limits. No more than 4 years (perhaps 2) for any elected official. It would create a continuous flow of fresh blood and ideas and make it very difficult for the1% to buy politicians.

    I am afraid that you would find that nothing would get done under that system, as everybody would be spending all their time learning the system and then be chucked out. Of course, you may mean that it doesn’t take any special knowledge to be a legislator, but I rather think that is an unrealistic point of view. One needs to know the structure of the institutions of government to operate them effectively. If you want to make it easier to stop the !% buying spree, do things like repeal Citizens United and close down the K street access to legislators.

    The problem: is that this is happening under “Obama”. Right from the start (and continues to this day) anything associated with “Obama” was denied and debunked. The Republicans have been the party of NO.. and your nation has squandered many opportunities for growth since.

    So, Kelly, you’re just going to keep going further and further to the right? That black void always has room for hacks like you. Have fun.

    What a dumb cartoon. If you had insurance, guess what! You’ve still got it, and prices are going up at their lowest rate in 50 years. And if you didn’t have health insurance, guess what! Now you can afford to buy it, and there’s an open marketplace that isn’t stacked against you. Why would any person think this huge benefit would cause irritability and loss of sleep?

    Kelley has been featured in the local newspaper (San Diego Union Tribune) for years – and both are infamous for their conservative bias. His stuff really gets old.

    He might not be American, or the name can be a red herring. However, even if he is from Sicily, the actions being taken, or rather, not taken, by the Congress is effecting economies world wide The head of the International Monetary Fund is very concerned about the USA failing to raise its debt ceiling. She said a few weeks ago that had the USA Congress not legislated crisis to crisis, the world economy would be at least 4% higher than it is. A belief shared by economists withing the USA itself.
    Be patient with our international neighbors, GP. They share the planet with us.

    Had that been that case the bill would have looked nothing like this far left lobbyist written hose job.

    Right. Nothing like someone else obtaining reasonably priced health insurance to turn a guy’s stomach.
