Would you please at least learn the ACA regulations before defending them? Thanks in advance.
    Instead of just saying 'on and on', why not make a complete list of health care services that you think Americans are not worthy of having. And with that list, provide the income brackets that deserve all of the very best and income brackets that deserve very little in your educated opinion.

    LOL. 2 trillion over the next ten years is less? And that's just at the fed level and pretending that number will not increase. Plus on most of them, their own insurance rates will rise. Plus they still get stuck paying the bills on the uninsured.

    That's a lose, lose, lose, lose situation for the taxpayer.

    You've mistaken health CARE with health INSURANCE. Obama can mandare whatever magical insurance he wants to (apparently) but the health care you will ultimately receive actually requires a doctor willing to accept the insurance.


    Americans expressing their feelings on good affordable health care for all sounds more like hate than anything else. There's just no logical reason for it. And expecially when affordable universal health care for all is much more cost effective. (statistically) Americans pay more than any other country in the entire world
    It's funny to see you write that while millions are being dropped from their health insurance. But please go on talking about this imaginary world you live in.

    People are paying more for their insurance if they are allowed to keep it at all. So again, you are talking about a situation that doesn't actually exist in the real world.

    I've heard that your statistics are fixed. Granted that some wealthy people might pay more but overall the American citizen will pay less and get more than a junk policy that covers next to nothing with deductibles that would bankrupt most of them anyway.

    So what is it with the teabaggers if it isn't greed and hate for their fellow Americans. Could it have something to do with the skin colour of a lot of their fellow Americans. Could it be that the teabaggers are more concerned with racist hating than anything else?

    Who said they aren't worthy of having them? I am saying that they are all "freebies" that the insurer has to pass on to the insured in the form of higher premiums. I'd venture a guess that after the overhead of the insurance provider it would be cheaper to buy your own birth control...

    LOL. Point out a few things to you and it's back to the phony race card. Here's a hint to you, take it or leave it. The race card has been so overplayed and misused that the only people that pay any attention to it, are people just like you. So while you may fire up some of your buddies with it's use, you lose points with everyone else.

    The thing with the TEA party is simple. They are tired of the government wasting money.

    Now lets talk about greed. People wanting something for nothing are the most greedy people on the face of the earth. It controls the very way they think and act. Taxpayers earn their money and are under no moral or constitutional requirement to provide for people that have learned to go against basic human instinct (taking care of yourself). Taxpayers don't mind and if fact are glad to provide for people physically or mentally unable to care for themselves but the greedy something for nothing crowd does not fit in that category. Some leeway has to be given to many Americans at this time though. Because the incompetent boob running the show has made it extremely difficult for people to land or keep jobs where they could provide for themselves.

    Yeah, it just adds another obstacle to the road out of poverty. For every $1,000 you earn you lose $1000 in state welfare benefits, eating away at your will to advance.

    When I was a social worker in the 90s is was pretty easy for a single mother to pull the equivalent of $45,000 salary in total benefits from the state and federal programs. It was eye opening to me as a college graduate with a mountain of student debt making $35,000 a year and working 9-5.

    That's true, but they also get premiums paid, and by people who are not ill. Think it through. The reason you can pay for it is because you have well people paying. That's why the insurance companies lobbied for it. And nothing is free.

    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.

    You have healthy people paying far more for it than they did before. Anyway, welcome to my point. Glad you made it safe.

    That's one of the many things that get to me about the clowns cheering on the every growing and ever excessive "social safety net". It forces people to lose their will to better themselves, take pride in themselves and festers hate towards those that provide that fund the government.
