    The liberals can now all be “Artists” and “philosophers” that produce nothing for their country, but gladly scoop up as much freebies as possible.
    Pass the bong!

    You nailed it.

    Millions without health insurance = Good

    Millions with health insurance = Bad

    I mean, the Republican goal is to hurt the 99%. You’re right, Skipcarlsen, the ACA is bad for Republican goals.

    And what did the CBO say about the alternative…continuing to have millions without health insurance?

    No, that’s not what it means. It means that the new parents can have one stay at home for a couple years instead of both being forced to work and leave their child with strangers. It means that a 63 year old who has worked and saved well for 40 years and has enough to retire can do so, opening up a position for someone else. It means that if you hate your job, your boss there’s less risk to finding a new job. It means that if your child becomes ill at the same time your job is moved to another state you can stay where you are instead of being forced to move.

    It means the worker has more freedom to determine their lives instead of being at the mercy of their employer.

    That has been proven even before the report, small business can’t afford it.

    “And what did the CBO say about the alternative…continuing to have millions without health insurance?”

    Although the PPACA has allowed millions that were unable to obtain insurance, I believe it has made it unobtainable for millions of others (one of the unconsidered consequences of the PPACA)

    Except those workers will find that their lower pay and fewer hours won’t cover the cost of health insurance, or even worse they end up on Medicade and have to go to the one clinic with a medical staff one lawsuit from closing to get mediocre care.
    .
    Aside from that given that only about a third of the necessary number have signed up for Obamacare, of that third less than half the necessary healthy young have signed up, almost a third went on Medicade… about triple the number expected… and far too many with serious health issues signed up. Give it a year and Obamacare plans will be in a “death spiral” of rapidly rising rates and people quitting the system in droves.

    ok one more time… if you don’t have a job and you are too young for medicare, who is paying for your health care?

    The right has a limited vocabulary.

    The Dems, who largely favored the “Public Option” essentially “single-Payer”, not “Socialized Healthcare” (Govt. ‘owns’ the system), were told & shown by the Right (all factions) that the “Public Option” would be ‘DOA’ in Congress. The Dems then seem to have grabbed “RomneyCare” and its root proposals to create something at least workable / bi-partisan supportable (they thought), from the Right’s own “playbook”…and we now have the result – Obamacare – vehemently opposed by the Right and not entirely satisfactory to the Left. Here’s an Item from ‘FORBES’ (NOT yer “Left-Wing” source !) on some history:

    My group “family option” plan has been over $400 a month for a long time but gives decent coverage. Those “miracle” $120/month plans if group would cover what, aspirin for traumatic amputations?


    BTW: under the “old system” my premium was going up an average of 13% a year, with increased deductibles. This year the rate went up only 3% and copays for drugs leapt from $5 per prescription, to a whoppiing $10/prescription.


    Yes, costs have continued to rise under the ACA, but for anyone in a plan with decent benefits, not as much as before.

    The best description of Obamacare so far:

    Remember when Nancy Pelosi said:“We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.”

    A physician said:“That’s the definition of a stool sample”.

    “No, single-payer doesn’t mean death panels. That would be the current system of private insurance where bureaucrats decide whether you can get care based on how profitable you continue to be to their company.”
    .
    Where this argument falls flat is liability. A private company makes a mistake and they are legally liable, a government entity makes a mistake and “oh so sorry”.
