    Re: Obama pulls plug on part of health overhaul law

    This part of BOCare has always been known to be unsustainable. CLASS was designed to fool the idiots in the CBO to score it as a benefit using a static econometric forecasting model. If BOCare is allowed to go fully operational, our economy will collapse. We are just at the beginning of this free-fall.

    Re: Obama pulls plug on part of health overhaul law

    The healthcare bill ended up being a piece of crap, mostly because it did not have bipartisan support. I still support a reformed health care system in our country, but not via this particular bill. People blame Obama for the way it turned out but the GOP made it an uphill battle and would not compromise whatsoever.

    Our government is ineffective.

    you can read 2,000+ pages of legalese a day while comprehending it?

    If you think it was passed "in a hurry," I just don't know what to tell you. The GOP had plenty of opportunity for input.
    actually they didn't. with the exception of a single televized potemkin conference that was designed to have no impact on the actual bill whatsoever, the GOP was locked out of the negotiations - the reason it took so long to pass was fierce debate among democrats.

    They didn't offer solutions, they offered NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.
    that is also incorrect - the GOP has offered multiple alternatives which would actually make the healthcare market better as opposed to disasters like what we see in the OP.

    If you think that the GOP's motivation for resistance had anything to do with the content of the bill, you're delusional. They said from (before) day 1 that their first priority was to make sure Obama didn't get reelected. In the middle of the worst recession in modern history, their first priority wasn't to govern, it was to win.
    If Obamacare is such a wonderful addition to the US body politic, then it is doomed for success - ergo, such spirited opposition to it would have reflected negatively on Republicans. The only way that Republicans can benefit politically to make Obama a one term president from their opposition to Obamacare is if it's actually bad policy.

    The Dems had the votes to not need the GOP. They couldn't even agree with each other, the GOP should have?

    Obamacare was designed to fail, so we could have exactly that.

    The liberals added hundreds of pages of legislation that could not have been read by anyone, including the members of congress, since it was produced in secret meeting in Pelosi's office and published the day they voted on the measure. Hell, at least pelosi was honest and said we had to pass the bill to actually see what was in it.

    The CLASS act was stuck in the bill to create a fictitious $70 billion in savings over ten years. Keep in mind the CBO last scoring of that POS bill was the legislation would produce $124 billion of projected deficit reductions.....half came from the CLASS provision that nobody believed would actually work. Of course there was also the $500 billion of fictitious medicare cuts in that scoring as well.
