    “Racist!”??

    I’m not quite sure how this cartoon can be labeled as racist.

    “even Tom is turning on Obama”

    Some people change their opinions based on the circumstances at the time. I know that comes as a surprise to the many who form an opinion and will never ever change it, regardless. It happens, though. Thinking people do exist.

    They just don’t shout as loudly as the people who already have their minds made up for good, so it’s harder to recognize them.

    It can’t be labeled “racist.” There’s a conservative meme that anyone who criticizes Obama is called “racist.” It’s infantile, but we’re talking about trolls here.

    Every other developed country has managed to figure out health insurance. And so far as I know, in none of these countries is the principle controversial — though of course no plan is perfect. Only the US seems to lack the collective intelligence to figure this out.

    @lonecat

    Y’know, lonecat, I was thinking about this, and I think maybe a major difference is the other nations tend to treat health care the way they would a public utility as essential for the smooth running and well-being of the citizens. We, on the other hand, see it as a source of profit for some at the expense of others well-being, that is, as good red-meat capitalists we treat this as a marketplace item. Just imagine if we did that with our utilities? And often the effort to make a public service into a private marketplace function results in an inferior service for most and (often) a chance for the less ethical to rip off their compatriots (think Enron).

    Actually, quite well…But then I live in a state that planned for it, instead of continually trying to block the inevitable. When the rest of you realize what you’ve done by not being prepared, you’ll once again want the rest of us to bail you out with our tax money…You leeches!

    “But then I live in a state that planned for it, instead of continually trying to block the inevitable.”
    I too live in a state that planned for it, tho the Gov. and Ins. Commissioner were against it. The Ins. Commissioner did his job and I commend him for it.

    sdut, how many people have lost (or will lose) “the plan they liked?” How many have lost being able to see “…the doctor they like?” How many new enrollees are there in your state into expaned Medicade? How many businesses have been negatively impacted by Obamacare in your state? How many people have bought a plan? Of those how many are not high cost consumers like those with pre-existing conditions?
    “(Going) quite well” hum? I’d say even the best state system is going to prove very costly in a number of ways.

    "
    Why the Tea types are against the ACA, a windfall for the executives at private insurance companies, seems to be because all the baksheesh is going to Dimmycrats. If only Bush, jr or Romney had put the ACA in place, so the baksheesh was going to people Fox likes, the Tea types would be saying exactly what the Obamabots are saying about the ACA now. :

    I’d say that covers it nicely. But anyone who thinks that the insurers won’t aggressively seek out any loopholes which will let them deny coverage hasn’t been paying attention to the way the insurers operate. Medicare policies are up for grabs, for anyone who thinks otherwise, and no, they are not free. You are absolutely right that who supports what is driven by who is getting the backsheesh.
