"The goal was that in a midterm election year, Democrats would be able to
point to millions of newly insured Americans, thanks to subsidized private plans
and an expanded version of Medicare." Like selling a pig with
lipstick on it and telling the other 300 million voters who were forced to buy
the pig, at higher prices, its not really a pig. Tough sell.
TB's own plan for millions of Americans with no health insurance? Would his
view have been different if he had lived in Mass. a few years ago? Or is it
simply a matter of "I got mine, fella."?
Mark B.You are right, but I suspect TB is simply parroting what he has
been told to say without personal knowledge.The roll out was a big
disappointment but so are large software programs. But the law and the program
is a big boost to the millions without insurance. I will no longer wonder why I
paid $69000 for a one night stay in a hospital after a routine heart procedure.
I was paying for the thousands who walk into the emergency room with no
insurance. Is it the best? My vote would be a Single Payer System
that gets the insurance industry out of the picture except for those contracted
to administer the program in a State. Unfortunately, the GOP said it would be
DOA when it got to the House floor.
No Mark, I think this time around Obama owns a real mess of his own creation,
coupled with lies about it repeatedly spoken from his own mouth.Some who
are addicted to hopium will go on ignoring the truth. Others will love him
forever for creating this entitlement. The 2014 midterms will shift things
around a bit as a result.But the real loser here is US. We are now saddled
with another Social Security/Medicare/Medicaid/Part D...programs we cannot
afford and cannot extract ourselves from.
Does itsjustmeagain even care that millions of other people lost their current
healthcare insurance and now will be forced to pay much more for less coverage
and now are forced to pay for his healthcare? What makes you more special or
deserving than millions of others?
The only thing worse the the botched roll out of this mess, is the actual roll
out of the law. The damages are only beginning and will get worse. Please
politicians REPEAL this travesty and start a discussion about the real issues
rather than pushing through a law that nobody read and apparently gives the
president the right to adjust it at his whim.
this law needs to be repealed completely. 2014 is only going to get uglier and
uglier as this law is implemented. At some point when you have a terrible design
you have to just cut your losses - throw it in the trash - and start over.
Obamacare is way past that point.
There are people who have tried and tried to get on the system but because of
the glitches and conflicting messages from the bureaucrats who are supposed to
help people, they have not been able to get coverage. What happens to these
people who are trying but the government glitches won't let them get
coverage. If they have a medical emergency and don't have coverage because
of a problem with the system, who pays?
it's interesting that Barack has granted as many exemptions from Obamacare
to all his buddies as there are pages in the law. Using common sense here.... if
the law is SOOO great then why all the exemptions??? Unions, politicians, Obama
friendly corporations , etc... They all get exemptions FROM this hideous bill.
Everyone else is STUCK and forced to either pay the fine or swallow his piece of
.... well you know. Now again using common sense we know the REAL
agenda of the left - a SINGLE PAYER SYSTEM which amounts to the complete
surrender to Socialism in America. This has always been the goal of the left. If
we break down the goals of the left they are as follows...1.
Adoption of Socialism and the abandonment of our constitution and bill of
rights.2. Forced Atheism in America. State sanctioned PC religion. 3. Surrender our our sovereignty and alignment with the UN as a ruling
body.think these are extreme??? All you have to do is make yourself
listen and you will hear the real intent of liberal America. This is why we need
Senators like Cruz, Lee and others who do NOT compromise with the left.
