    Sorry, but until you address the costs, all of them there will never be any improvement in healthcare costs.

    Good morning, Bubba.
    The sewed thinking thing is bad enough but the whole pompous obnoxious comment act gets really really tiresome ... even in a newbie.
    How you doin' Pol?

    I'm rapidly becoming irritated with all the nonsense that's going on in DC! The "I'm smarter than you are, therefore I'll decide what's best for you," attitude does tend to affect me that way! Odd that I, along with millions of others, somehow managed to live productive lives without their help before now, though! Since arrogant smug "know-it-alls" are usually not popular in any society, especially when it becomes apparent that they're full of :, it's becoming normal to ignore what they say! People are waking up to the fact that our government is dysfunctional! $17 trillion in debt is disgusting, and yet spending money we have to borrow is the new normal? Not where I come from! :

    I don't appreciate someone telling me I enjoy mandates immediately after I claim I don't like mandates. It implies someone is reading my post and simply inserting their own thoughts into what I said. Those types of lies need to be corrected immediately and the offender should be embarrassed.

    I know, but stuff like that can happen here and anywhere else... for various reasons ... not always malice.
    I was just hoping you didn't get into the habit of that "can't read or comprehend" stuff like some others employ regularly here ... on this very page, in fact ... you'll know it when you see it.
    But in the end it's your call so have fun whatever you decide.

    Thanks for demonstrating your ignorance about the law you hate so much.

    Cost controls are certainly a significant part of the ACA.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Only for the insurance companies' benefit. That's the extent. We the people pay more.

    Really? Cost controls are a big part of ACA? How does adding 30 million people to the roles of the insured improve costs, quality, and service? When you exempt groups from ACA that increases the costs on others. Name for me just one Federal govt. social program that cost what it was supposed to cost, did what it was supposed to do, and actually solved a problem>

    Ever heard of an ACO?
    Payment for quality vs quantity?
    EMR to reduce repetitive tests and redundant care?
    PCORI?

    You probably have no clue about these things because you sound like you get your information from Glenn Beck.
