    What I have a problem with is people like you who have no problems spending someone else's money and call the fact that we will have over 30 million uninsured a success?

    Nope

    In fact, while there is proof that many people lost the plan they had last year, I haven't seen any proof that any individual who was insured last year has gone without insurance this year

    If you have any proof that this has happened to anyone, I'd like to see it.

    For those that had it taken away, how many have gotten it back having not been included in the ever-growing count? Will a time ever come when GOPS repeal AND replace at the same time? What does the GOP stand for on paper, such as Camp's tax reform that fellow GOP McConnell stamped out right away ?

    Here's the difference between you and me. You look at a reduction of uninsured people by 6-7 million, call it a failure and say "let's get rid of it and go back to the system that had 45 million people uninsured in the first place". I look at what you're saying and try to figure out how someone can be so blinded by partisan politics they are incapable of understanding why their position is so stupid and illogical.

    6-7 million is a good start. When you factor in the first year or two's low tax cost for not having insurance, it's not surprising to hear there are many people who will not sign up. But as the tax for not having insurance goes up, more people will choose to have insurance. And when more and more people get insurance, more and more people will have the opportunity to become/stay healthy. And once more people join insurance pools and more people are healthy (and no longer broke from medical catastrophes), costs will go down and people will have more money to spend.

    That's the general plan behind the concept. Will it work? Only time will tell. Will it need tweaking and revising from time to time? Absolutely. But it remains a mystery to me how someone can say only 6-7 million now have insurance, so we should scrap the program after 6 months and go back to the way we did it before where those 6-7 million didn't have insurance. Somehow, in your partisan mind, if it's not an "everyone now is insured" solution in the first six months, we should go back to what was the problem in the first place. That's just asinine.
    No, sorry you have yet to prove who those 6-7 million are and why would a program that has been in place for 3 years be called a success for generating these kind of numbers when the original number for uninsured was over 45 million?

    Unlike you I understand the role of the Federal govt. which isn't to implement personal responsibility programs. My partisan mind understands that we have a 17.3 trillion dollar debt and are paying about 250 billion a year in debt service. Obamacare does nothing to lower the deficit or the debt especially with the numbers of people not signing up

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You have no proof that 6-7 million UNINSURED have signed up for Obamacare but that doesn't stop you from touting it

    Precisely what I see. It's freaking hilarious. It's like a pack of yipping hyenas at the very mention of the word Obamacare.

    You're not making any sense. It appears to be a pattern.
