How easy it is for people like you to spend someone else's money as long as you believe it is spending in the name of compassion. How about some compassionate results and not a 17.3 trillion debt and rising?

    It is up to the people of Ga, not the Federal Govt. to handle insurance issues. You don't seem to understand the concept of Federal, state, and local responsibilities
    To all of this I say, if they don't have insurance through the government, they'll have Reagan ER insurance through the government.
    I prefer the penny-wise to pound-foolish approach, which has no doubt caused the 17.3 trillion we both refer to.

    And yes I don't mind spending my money on others, though I also pay for my own.
    And you shouldn't either, since you have more than you could ever hope to spend, unless through philanthropy, like the Carnegies of the 1st Gilded age .

    Which blue states are doing "just fine" and by what measure? Unemployment rate? Cost of living?

    Is that right? Tell BLS that they have it wrong. Bush had an employment number of 146 million, today that number is 145 million. Guess that is a liberal success, only one million less working now. What is it about liberalism that creates people like you? Still waiting for an answer, how many of those people enrolled in ACA were uninsured or not eligible for Medicaid?

    Just for fun I picked a blue state at random. California.

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, here were California's unemployment rates in 2005:

    January - 5.8%
    February - 5.7%
    March - 5.6%
    April - 5.5%
    May - 5.4%
    June - 5.4%
    July - 5.4%
    August - 5.3%
    September - 5.3%
    October - 5.3%
    November - 5.2%
    December - 5.1%

    Unemployment rate for California today, according to the BLS: 8.0%

    Yes, those blue states are doing just fine, and much better than when Bush was President. What a job market....in 2005 when Bush was President.

    When Reagan left office the debt was 2.6 trillion or less than 50% of GDP, today it is 17.3 trillion which exceeds 100% of GDP. Obama had to have ACA that will still leave 30 million uninsured. Is that a liberal success story?

    If you don't mind spending your money on others why do you have to do it through a federal bureaucrat? Why not help people directly? I am sure that there are many who would accept your help to buy them insurance

    Are you seriously telling me that 17.3 trillion exceeding 100% of GDP is on Obama alone.
    Why didn't all concerned agree to the grand bargain in the summer of 2011?
    How much of Obama's debt is due to interest on inherited debt ?

    I live in Washington. Things are much better now than during Bush's last term. And it's not close.

    I would gladly give back on my teacher's pension here in Illinois but I'd need the other one million pensioneers to go along with me?

    When will GOPs stop using this one man argument, let alone the
    "go find another job in the middle of your life when settled with your family" meme.

    As for tomorrow, the GOP repeals but does not replace--they have nothing in a bill on health care--never have .
