    Wait till the low-information Obama voter sees what’s in their future for how much Obamacare will cost them in 2014. Won’t be pretty….

    You must have a really low opinion of him considering FDR presided over the deaths of hundreds of thousands.

    The only thing that makes it the best option, Reflex, is that it’s the only option. The idea behind the PPACA was good. As law it’s a mess. It’s implementation is difficult. I’d like to see it scrapped and rewritten before it’s implemented.

    @ReFlex-76Hope those drugs you’re taking are / will be covered by Obamacare because clearly you need them. “Best president since FDR.” Yeah, clearly you’re delusional. Where a rolling eyes icon when you need one?

    As far as insurance costs going up: if anyone has been paying attention, they have been going up between 5 and 20 % per year for years. My personal health insurance has almost tripled in the 9 years that I’ve been paying premiums. Now, granted, I’m nine years older, but I am healthy. I can’t imagine what would happen if I actually needed to use my insurance coverage.

    When you take away the cost of unpaid emergency-room services from “nowhere” and add them to the cost of health care, it’s frightening. In 2011, more than $39 BILLION was unpaid emergency room fees. We pay for it, whether it’s in that column of the balance sheet or not.

    And, what’s more cost-effective: paying for meds for diabetes, or having a patient who can’t afford them wait until he/she needs amputation, dialysis, etc? A stitch in time….

    When all is said and done, though, single-payer Medicare for all is what this particular doctor sees as the only alternative for the train wreck that was the previous system, and the well-intentioned but unworkable ACA. The sooner we do something about this the better, but repeal-only is a fool’s mission.

    @onguard♦“Look up the Lousiana Purchase and the Cornhusker Kickback.”♦Yeah, I remember those but never thought of them as bribes. I guess they are.•That’s one of the major problems of the PPACA. It exempts so many people from the insurance pool, making it more expensive for those who are required to be in it. So much for equal treatment under law.

    You will be lucky to see a Nurse once Obama-Tax kicks in. Forget actually seeing a specialist.

    Oh and also get ready for even smaller paychecks too!

    If you pulled that number off of PolitiFact, your selective use of “37th” belies the rest of the story. Even PolitiFact mentions flaws in the methodology and ideology.

    More conservative lies and spoins in the truth, straight from right-wing conservative radio…

    So you’re saying that FDR wasn’t president during WW 2?

    Ya the Americans get in line with all the Canadiens waiting a year to see a real doctor.

    No thanks.

    Spoins? Did you mean spin? History says that FDR was president during World War 2, doesn’t it? Statistics state that over 400,000 Americans died. Most before FDR did!

    I think that the qualifying words were “in line”, but that was funny. Good one.
