    obama care was a train wreck the moment it was signed. The dem's twisted arms, delivered bribes and fudged numbers to get this train on the track and now it is approaching the bridge that was never built at 60mph and it has no brakes.

    Free-market health care. That's no way to run a railroad.
    Completely devoid of knowledge regarding topic. Free market health care is THE BEST way to deliver health care. The challenge is and will forever be having a for profit third party (insurance companies) involved in what should and WOULD be, in a free market, a doctor-patient transaction.

    You don't have a single shred of data to support that assertion.

    And people believe it is the Republican's fault.

    No it is isn't. If you want to see what a free market healthcare system is, just look at Singapore. What we have is far, far from that model.

    How long have we had free market healthcare ?

    Obama-Care in less than 5 Years has nearly tanked our economy, and the AUTHOR OF THE BILL now admits its going to be a trainwreck.

    What else are you guys going to screw up next ?

    That is also not true. The majority of the people were served just fine before this Obamacare nonsense. And it's NOT progress. It may (and that's a longshot) end up serving more people, but they won't be able to afford to use it. It's a sad farked up situation and Obama and Reid have their names all over the debacle.
