    Guess that would mean 42 million still uninsured? Who would call anything that left 42 million uninsured a success?

    No, you would put the program down regardless of its success. That was my point and you proved it.

    There were a reported 40 million uninsured and the number enrolled is 6 million yet no one knows the make up of those 6 million. That indicate a success to you?
    I haven't said anything one way or another about whether it was a success or not...my point was simply that people like you would NEVER call it a success because it was passed by a Democrat. And your first post proved it immediately.

    Unlike you apparently results matter to me as does the actual role of the Federal Govt. which isn't to provide personal responsibility issues. If you need a parent adopt one.

    How can anyone even post that 6 million without even knowing the breakdown call this a success? I grew up a Democrat but that party left me. Bet I have voted for more Democrats in elections than you Republicans?

    I am an old cynic when it comes to politics. I suppose congratulations is at hand for the Democrats. They have succeeded in pushing their political agenda, the ACA on the American people which is probably here to stay. For 4 years now since its passage those for the ACA has been constantly between the 35-40% range. Those against between 53-60%, a constant gap of 10-20 percentage points advantage against. Yet somehow the Democrats have managed to keep this law in place. Kudos Democrats.

    I think one of the main reasons for this is they, the Democrats are more astute at playing the political games. First the Democrats made sure all the good stuff in the ACA was front loaded. All of it would kick in before the election of 2012 with the bad stuff waiting until after the November’s election. It is true the Democrats paid a heavy price at the polls in 2010 for going against most voters’ wishes, but they ensured that would not happen again in 2012 by delaying the bad stuff. The ACA unlike in 2010 wasn’t really an issue in 2012 and the Democrats won or at least preserved the status quo.

    Then some of the bad stuff kicked in, the Democrats know they are in real trouble for the 2014 election. So what do they do, they delay and postpone more of the bad stuff until after the November election. Great political move and it just might work in helping them retain the senate. The house is safely Republican. What the majority of Americans think or want concerning this law is moot, irrelevant, does not count. It is their political agenda that does and the Democrats are very good at achieving that, the republicans are minor leagues when it comes to the political games being played in Washington.

    There has been two polls out which prove this law has hurt more than twice as many people as it has helped. But do the Democrats care? No, they cite the figures that prove the law has had no effect on most people. So the law hurts more people than helps, no big deal, the Democrats political agenda has been accomplished. This law is here to stay I am sad to say, here to stay regardless of what most Americans want, here to stay even if in the end the law hurts more than it helps. All I can say is congratulations Democrats, you have achieved a political agenda you been trying to get since FDR. Kudos to you, your party won, the wants, wishes and needs of the majority of Americans lost.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    But they don't, that's EXACTLY what I'm saying. You only care it was passed by a Democrat and so you're going to condemn it. You're a true team politics player.

    How can anyone even post that 6 million without even knowing the breakdown call this a success?
    I don't know, I didn't say that. All I said is you're a perfect example of those who are going to believe only one way, regardless of what the evidence tells you. That was my point. The fact you still don't understand it seems pretty much par for the course for you.

    Funny, no mention of this on Fox? Shocking I tell you. Shocking.

    Your guess is as good as mine.

    Old in this case is anyone over 40. You know, the people that were already paying for healthcare.

    I think the number of people that have paid or will pay would be shockingly low. As in, less than 2 million perhaps, if that.

    Your calculation is based on a early estimate of the uninsured...wouldn't want to use non-partisan estimations to assess ACA?
