    The ACA ain't universal health care; not even close. However, I agree that many conservatives seem to regard UHC as the next step on the slippery slope to the gulag when the multitude of other countries that have implemented UHC have somehow managed to avoid the steely grip of Stalinism.

    My point is that the Presidency is not an entry level position. Just like you don't take a kid who just finished college and make him CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

    No, he was in Congress during Watergate.

    Ah yes, he was. My mistake. Although he was actually out of Congress by Watergate, he was the U.N. ambassador at the time of the break-in and chairman of the RNC when Nixon resigned, as per Wiki.

    Especially when it is all private industry providing the insurance because there is no public option.

    I don't think anyone is saying it leads to Stalinism.

    Well as long as the Supreme Court thinks it's a good idea then by golly it must be a good idea. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    Yeah, with the terms being guided by the state. I guess as long as it's technically private it doesn't much matter who controls it, does it? Sometimes I wonder if you guys actually understand control structures at all.

    All economies have structures they adhere to. I recall I think it was Alabama where the whole state had an insurance duopoly of two insurance companies you could choose from for the whole state. Wonder how many options there will be there next year in the health exchange?
