    Part or parts may be either, but the Boeher/Romney making folks buy from PRIVATE INSURERS, is the most questionable. Yes, a fine for not buying is not “force”, well as the Dane said “That IS the question”!

    Zit, again, when we have to contribute a tiny bit more to help balance the budget, that’s wrong? Oh, right, a cup of tea a day would cost roughly 50 times as much, so it’s a “ripoff”??

    If the Constitution is a “living document,” then it ISN’T a “constitution.” Again, the left use words as though they have no meaning. If you want to change something, you AMEND it. We fell of the tracks long ago when we got on this idiotic notion that our constitution was a “living document.”

    Even tho her math is a little off. I bet the people paying the premiums would love their income to keep up with that rate of inflation. Heck – My income’s been level for the last ten years.

    So not alot of choices leads to the humane solution?

    My brother retired with a company pension of over $100 K per year, and complained he didn’t get enough from Social Security in ADDITION to that! Exactly how does someone with that income need SS supplemental to survive?? But the real issue is that while the Constitution indeed should be a living document, Teapublicans want to shoot it in the head and call it “enhancement”. Just like every proposal Obama or Democrats bring forward. Obama proposes spending cuts and a minor increase in taxes on the wealthiest Americans, and Boehner and McConnel have the audacity to claim this is an “all or nothing” demand?? Oh, right, any tax increase on the wealthy is too much to bear, let’s increase Medicare costs on those “poor” Zitty is suddenly worried about.

    I like that Howie complains about how Medicare will go up under the Democratic plan. Has he looked at the Republican plan?

    That is not a “fact,” It is your deranged interpretation of what you believe ought to be. It is a corrupt opinion.

    The joke underlying the cartoon is, unfortunately, not funny. Justices Scalia, Thomas, & Alito, & Chief Justice Roberts will undoubtedly vote against the Affordable Health Care Act, and its constitutionality may hang in the balance of Justice Kennedy’s mood.Although the Affordable Health Care Act is a step forward, what we really need is the same health care that the justices receive. Put everyone on the plan that the justices, the president, the members of Congress, and every veteran receives. That would be fair, and that would be constitutional.I do find it amusing that those on these forums who cry loudest about “big government” receive Social Security & Medicare.

    The “health care” the justices receive is totally irrelevant to the discussion of Medicare OR Social Security as THEY ARE RICH!! Their salaries and benefits for sitting on the bench are nada!

    Howie, I"ve mentioned it before, I read about 50 books in this past year, “average” 35-50 most years, most of the “libs” here are likewise obviously, in most cases, well-read. The “conservatives” on the other hand spout diatribes from Rush, Faux et al, and accuse us of “hate” every time we state FACTS! Yes, we have strong opinions, and many labeled “lib” here are actually “radical centrists”, who recognize that neither political party, or extremist “wing” has any rational answer.

    “Radical centrists” stand up for that “middle ground” called informed dialogue, and call out loudly for people to THINK, then act! Interestingly, the “Wall Street occupation” is the OPPOSITE OF ANARCHY, calling for government to step up and do the job called for in the Constitution. It is the “TEA party” that has morphed from “anti-tax” or even “fair tax” to support plutocracy and corporate reign over the “ignorant masses”; that are THEM!
