    With insurance and pharmaceutical companies practically dictating how a physician treats their patients I can't say the system has been golden before the healthcare law.

    Excuse it any way you want, the voter had the option to vote in a way to change it but didn't. Those most against it fell early and often.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    As a matter of fact, no it wasn't. You can't make up facts.

    Believe what you will. But anytime a liberal is faced with "how are you going to pay for this" they don't respond, like what kind of stupid question is that. Do you really think people on the left really care how much debt this country is accumulating. I sure don't see it. But they do care about is getting their entitlements, their nanny and freebies. They could care less where the money comes from.

    Until the legislature is abolished and laws are passed by popular referendum we will not have a democratic government.

Just as plumbers and mechanics are meant to gain expertise in their fields, governors (that being all who hold a position in elected government) are meant to carry out their profession by studying government and gaining greater expertise and wisdom on the issues of governance.

    I'm not saying that the health care law was great, I'm just saying that expecting your elected officials to do what you want, or what the majority wants, all the time will only lead to disappointment and an unnecessary distrust of government.

    The voters did have that option, and had Obamacare been the only issue they would no doubt have exercised it. Perhaps you've noticed how many states have rejected the scheme.

    This will be worse. But in a sad way I want to see the slow realization in the program's supporters of how blind they have been and how willfully they gave away everything regarding their own choices with their bodies to mindless bureaucrats. It's like the moment when you realize your friend just can't be talked out of a stupid stunt so you just sit back and watch the painful lesson unfold.
