    [QUOTE=Tettsuo;1061759852]If there are kinks, we can work them out. What we know for a fact is the healthcare system we had wasn't going to work and was going to drive America into the ground. What we have now isn't perfect, but it's far better than where we were.

    All of these complaints about the current system seems silly. Progress is better than stagnation. ACA is progress. Free market healthcare is a guaranteed trainwreck.[/

    To say there are kinks in this law is like saying the Pacific Ocean is moist.

    The railroad beat Wall Street expectations, even without a one-time profit of $60 million on a sale of land in Michigan that added 19 cents per share to Norfolk Southern's earnings.

    Analysts surveyed by FactSet expected earnings of $1.17 per share on $2.78 billion in revenue.

    The railroad's revenue was relatively flat compared to last year's $2.79 billion, but that could be considered a victory given the 17 percent decline in coal revenue.
    I stand corrected.

Thinkin' Amtrak within the construct of your analogy...what did I miss specifically?
    The point was the repair not every minute detail of the repair. Train wrecks are not the end of the line. They are fixed -- by the way, on privately owned and publicly owned railroads.

    That's absurd. No other first tier national health care delivery system relies exclusively on free-market health care and most of them deliver far better outcomes than the US system.

    But none of them delivers to the sheer volume of people that we do.

    I have said it many times before and I will say it again, ACA will end up costing a lot more then projected and will add to our national debt contrary to what has been promised. This is just the first sign of that.

    Er, uh...we don't rely 'exclusively on free market health care'...Medicaid, Medicare and Tricare are run by the government. Try again.

    When you say 'publicly owned railroads' are you referring to those whose stocks are publically traded or owned by the Government? If the latter can you provide examples?

    ps. the government doesn't own the tracks that Amtrak runs on...

    Zimmer Title Correction in red
    Reid: More Funding Needed To Make ObamaCare an even BIGGER 'Train Wreck'
    I wonder when Reid will say this "ObamaKare is failure/abortion/train wreck/lost"... just as he surrendered for America to the terrorists in the Iraq War?

    C'mon Harry... wave the white flag... you know it's true... ObamaKare is a big black money sucking hole... a failure by design like most everything you Socialists create.

    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.
