    Sure. We can treat that. Stand up, turn around, take your briefs down, bend over, and RELAX. It’ll be just what you need.

    Cost estimated at this point to be $600m. (That’s roughly $2 per American citizen.) (
    By contrast, “The Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, taken together, will be the most expensive wars in US history—totaling somewhere between $4 trillion and $6 trillion." (
    And remember that the Iraq war was supposed to pay for itself, so while cost more than some estimates (it’s hard to judge, actually), the Iraq war cost INFINITELY more than it was estimated to be, and TEN THOUSAND TIMES more than is expected to cost.
    So making that particular comparison was quite unwise on your part — especially since is working, and the Iraq war has been utter and horrific failure.

    I have one goal this weekend. I want to hang my lighted "Seasons Greetings’ sign in the front window to, um P**s off the right wingers.

    The PPACA rollout is about where Medicare Part D was at this point in its history, except that unlike then, when the Democrats reluctantly rolled up their sleeves to make the program they’d voted against a success, the other side is still throwing every monkey wrench they can into the works.

    Republican governors refuse to open exchanges in their states, hoping to drag the website down. Republican congressmen refused additional funds (a pittance, compared to what it ended up costing) that probably would have made the rollout much smoother, back in April. Now they’re putting up phony websites to hinder the process. Truly classy.

    Imagine if the Democrats had done that with Part D. You’d still hear the Gops sobbing about it on Fox News.

    Rockngolfer: Another advantage to “Season’s Greetings”, it can be used in the Spring, Summer, and Fall when the Reich Wing try to prevent anyone from being merry.

    NFL” only accepts information from the “Beck/Limaugh/Hannity/ Fox et. al. Fact Fairy”.

    I am glad my health providers have all notified me that I don’t have to file, or change anything as they’re all in compliance with the law. It’s also interesting that my group policy is increasing only 3%, as opposed to the annual 13% of the previous decade. AH, but my copay on drugs is doubling! OH THE PAIN! From $5 to $10 per prescription. More irritating is the drugs NOT on their formulary (the provider IS a pharmaceutical company) because the big mama company doesn’t hold the patent .

    “So who has really come out ahead here?”

    The insurers, of course. As intended.

    This health care system is carefully crafted to best serve 22yr old professional athletes on steroids, who have multi million dollar pro sports contract.

    The poor, the sick, the elderly, the infants – need not apply. What a great system, eh?

    “We are still in a Depression, it is very selective. only hurts the 80% on the bottom side of the economic pyramid.”

    In a nutshell. Very well said!

    And Bushie Baby IMMEDIATELY decided that WE didn’t need a surplus, and so he reduced taxes, then proceeded to tell us (with Darth Cheney’s help) that deficits DIDN’T Matter!!!

    Oh, Republicans? That furrin word, “schadenfreude,” is German. It means the feeling you get watching coverage of Obama on Fox News.
