    there is nothing free about the free market.
    Free markets allow people to choose, the problem is if people don't choose to take what liberals want they have to be eliminated. In the free market people should be allowed to choose to fail and many have. I had 1200 employees, offered insurance to all including part time employees, less than 50% elected to take the insurance. Should I have forced the others? Costs were less than Obamacare now or at best I can tell. Only in the liberal world should the govt. tell the private citizen exactly what they need or want

    Sure seems to be either or as those thinking with their hearts still support liberalism in spite of their brain showing them the actual data that shows liberalism to be a disaster

    Tell that to the 4.5 million who had their policies cancelled that Obama now wants to have reinstated.

    you say they all had revolutions, then what does the "Great Depression hit in 1929", have to do with it.

    you imposed a negative on america using 1929, yet you imposed no negative on the other two, in fact you acted as through they were some how more enlighten over america.

    peoples lives should not be dictated by how much they are worth in monetary value.

    what is worse in your opinion? Burning 100,000 dollars in a furnace, or 100,000 people? both are illegal, but which should be considered the greater tragedy.

    Amazing how you are projecting 2014 elections now
    Texas will turn blue soon too. It's as inevitable as those polar caps melting.

    Most states have a 60-day notice period before allowing a new policy back on the market. So it will probably take anywhere from 60-120 days before the policies are available for purchase again.

    However, the exchanges are all but required to suck in those 4.5 million consumers this year, to keep the pool healthy, and without them, expect sticker shock on the exchange in Sep/Oct of 2014.

    With the USA as a strong Christian nation- it was part of the very Gilded Age ethic which created the modern Republican Party that you are going to have losers. The only remaining question is what do we do with the losers --- especially when there are so many of them? When you have a third of the nation - il fed, ill housed, ill clothed and without proper medical care it is a recipe that we know only too well what dish it produces. The French found that out. Russian found that out. And we did not want it to happen here so we adopted elements of the welfare state as pacification for the lower classes to prevent revolution and destruction of the system and the wealthy.
    Never let a crisis go to waste, eh?

    What the hell does that have to do with 4.5 million Americans losing their health insurance because Obama says the plans don't meet Obamacare requirements? Since when is it up to the Govt. to tell a private citizen what personal responsibility expense they should have? You don't see a problem with that? My bet is you wouldn't be too keen on the Federal govt. under a Republican President telling you what you need to spend your money on.
