    I would be interested in hearing your logic to implement another Federal entitlement program and destroy our current healthcare system to insure 6 million uninsured and add 1.8 trillion to the debt over 10 years or 180 billion a year. Guess that 250 billion a year in debt service is going to increase

    Obama is looking out for you. Always looking out for you.

    Okay, well not you maybe, but he's always looking out for someone I guess.

    Exactly, you countered my argument with incomplete, inconclusive evidence. All I did was assume that your evidence had some merit and spun my follow-up argument off of it.

    So, here is how it went down:

    Step 1: OP sites an article trumpeting that 6 million people have signed up for health PPACA health insurance

    Step 2: I post a bit of observational humor to centered on the fact that we actually don't have any good numbers of any signups so there is no grounds for celebration

    Step 3: You post numbers to counter my statement

    Step 4: I evaluate the success of PPACA based on the numbers you provided.

    Step 5: You argue that the numbers you provided aren't any good thereby agreeing with the observation I made in Step 1.

    This fight was over after your self inflicted TKO.

    I think the government planned it that way. At least, they didn't try to hide it.


    But it does makes some people feel good. Like it or not, this law didn't address healthcare for the poor, it addressed insurance. It is a law the majority didn't want because 80% of Americans were happy with what they had. Instead of taking care of the 20% and that is a high number if we are talking about only getting the poor who didn't have health insurance insurance, not those who could afford it but choose not to get it. We give most of those an insurance policy that is getting more and more worthless.
    Medicaid was the reason that the health care system needed an over haul. I don't know how putting more people on medicaid will help solve that problem...but the CBO office predicts the ACA will help reduce the nations debt. So perhaps the real reason for the ACA isn't to save the consumers money...it's to save the government money that it pays on the national debt. Apparently, medicaid costs were becoming a bottomless money pit and ACA is the plug.


    Pat yourself on the back if you must, but I think it would have been better to address those poor folks who didn't have health care instead of this monster which hurts more than it helps and gives a lot of people a piece of paper that is just that, a piece of paper. but hey, they have that piece of paper.
    I think your doom and gloom is a bit premature considering the law has only been in effect for a few months and way too soon to draw such unsubstantiated conclusions. I don't like paying for insurance anymore than next person, but I'm glad that social safety net is there now....and not because of poor folks...but because who knows, me and mine might need it, too. Anyway, as time goes on the law will undoubtedly get "tweaked"...just as other laws of such magnitude have in the past. And in no time at all, people will just take health insurance for granted...just like they do social security.

    Their is no statics of those that picked a plan let alone paid for it. And let's not mention that 6 million people lost their healthcare plan.

    But go ahead and light another candle.....
    The right is so desperate for Obamacare to fail. It is pretty pathetic.

    Funny, no mention of this on Fox? Shocking I tell you. Shocking.
    I heard it on Fox. Since you don't watch Fox it would make sense you didn't hear it there. My question is do we have independent private sector confirmation of this or are we just taking the government's word for it?

    And bureaucracy will kill any idea that will have a positive impact on the majority of Americans. I think you are a realist as I am.
    Yes, we are in agreement that it's half good/ half poop and all we need to do is flush one half. But politics will probably prevent that, so we end up with what it is.
