    So why is this called the affordable act then? Is it not to make it more available to the rest of you also?
    I want my fellow countrymen to be well,but I hardly think just giving them something for nothing is going to make them well, especially when the rest of us, who work hard to pay for ours as well as, now, all others, will get lesser care... that does not make us well or better off.

    And you are joking about why they call it the affordable care act right? Nobody really falls for that anymore do they?

    As far as I know Obama made it more affordable by having tax pay for medical services rather than insurance. Why would not the rest of you benefit from this also?

    "Thatís why when this administration took office it didnít matter that the country was going off the cliff economically. All forces were directed toward getting this legislation passed,Ē Carson said.
    I've started threads trying to get americans to take a good long hard look at this, to no avail. Why does my approach to calling BS seem to be so unique that nobody can grasp it, when in actuality, all I do is look beyond the facade, and focus more on the surrounding facts and circumstances. In this way, a clear picture emerges. Anybody can do it...

    FACT: Our nation was (and still is) on the verge of financial collapse, and even during the sequester, I saw a news clip about it. The senators and congress were trying to solve important fiscal issues but obama kept pushing those aside and bringing this obamacare plan to the forefront. To add to the oddity of it all, nobody wanted it. I will happily, at your request, post numerous links in support of the fact that there was an overwhelming amount of non-support. If you disagree, please post some links where we can see that there was anybody in favor of it.

    All states and counties have free clinics and emergency room visits. My state/county provides free full blown coverage for low-income. With my MSI in California, even visits to specialists were covered, as well as most of the pharmacy costs. I'm on 6 different heart meds and I pay $8 for all my refills. So, it MUST be concluded that the "urgency" for obamacare is phony BS. If you live in the US, and were denied free medical care, I'd like to know what city and state you live in so I can verify this.

    So then obama says something to the effect that his sole concern is to pass this bill, and nevermind that it is too long for anybody to read, it needs to pass and we can read it later! Because he cares about our health and too many are uninsured....but wait! Red flags. There hasn't been some big thing where a bunch of people died because they were refused medical attention. So where does this urgency come from that brings this issue to the forefront, more important than all other issues during the sequester, and needs to be passed before anybody reads it? Thin air is where it came from. So clearly, there is some other hidden reason for the whole thing, and them not telling us what this real reason is, is enough to take a stand, and refuse the unconstitutional implementation of it.

    I know. Facts have a liberal bias, as does reality so I hear.

    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.

    I thought I was talking to the bounty hunter, my apologies.

    And there were 70+ pages of posts when I replied. Who would read 70+ pages because they wanted to respond? I checked the first two pages and last two pages of posts. Besides, I don't think my post particularly needs responding to. I pointed out how ridiculous it is to call Obamacare the worst thing since slavery. Most importantly, I think I made a pretty solid list of things that make health care reform seem more like the emancipation proclamation and less like slavery.

    Taxation is slavery
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    You aren't required to pay taxes. You can choose to become homeless with zero income. You could move to another country. Taxes are obligations which you incur when you enjoy the benefits of a modern society. No one is forcing you to to use all of the goods and services your tax dollars provide. If you don't want to pay, then leave.

    Slaves don't get that choice. Slaves are property.

    There's a giant chasm between taxation and slavery.

    Oh, I've read your opinion on the subject, but you must realize its nothing but your opinion which you are entitled to have. I asked for proof and you offered none. Actually, President Obama's comments after the George Zimmerman trial are the best evidence that he is not racist. His reason for speaking was to show why many African Americans had negative feelings about the case. Watch or read what he said that day:

    Obama Trayvon Martin Speech Transcript: President Comments On George Zimmerman Verdict

    You've said President Obama is racist, I am not saying you are, but could you please prove you are not racist?
