    Since you aren't going to read the article it might be easier to post the entire article but then that is what liberals always do, want someone else to feed them the information you need. Read the article as it answers your question. Then maybe we can get back on the thread topic?

    So and in conclusion: it's Rightie BS. It takes a snippet (projected costs were higher than actual) and then makes a BS contention that competitive forces were the cause, when no such components exists within the law, and in fact, the one every other country uses to great effect, has been specifically barred from use by Medicare.

    Fact. Not Forbsean BS.

    Since you did read it, presumably; and further claimed I am ignoring "actual data," what actual data are you speaking of?

    Your leaning is definitely correct, "very liberal" as you will ignore anything that flies in the face of what you have been told by sources you want to believe are credible. Too bad all those sources do is make you look foolish. Now when didn't "your" President fix what you see as a problem when he had total control of the Congress, 2009-2010? "Your" President is incompetent and doesn't want to lower costs because he only wants to create dependence. Guess liberals always need dependent people for their own power.

    Empty rhetoric. The last dying breath of the cut-and-run crowd. I am in awe.

    You also bait and troll when you want to divert from the reality that you have been brainwashed. You see, no liberal understands the private sector and the benefits of competition to price controls. According to a liberal the govt. is the answer and we have seen how that has worked out 17 trillion in debt later. Keep promoting bigger govt. as that sure makes you look brilliant.

    Yawn; stupid partisan rhetoric is no recovery from your prior empty rhetoric post, nor from your BS contention that I was ignoring "actual data," since your link to a Rightie Rag had no such thing in it, nor even references to actual data sources, that I could see.

    It's the common failing of Democrats and progressives that they are far more focused on the goal than the process.

    Ok, so tell me, "very liberal" what is an acceptable source of information that is acceptable to you? Apparently Forbes is a right wing rag even though it quotes CBO and Kaiser Foundation data. So apparently CBO is only credible when it gives you what you want and not credible when it offers something different than you want?

    This thread should bring out the best in partisan politics.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
