    Even with the coercion that defines liberalism, it does not work.

    Perhaps a less coercive solution instead of force for political benefit should have been pursed.

    The GOP will yap a lot about the ACA, but dont expect any action.
    And there in lays the original dirty little secret put forth by liars and con people, that told us things like "We have to pass the bill, to find out what's in the bill", then never read the damned thing themselves, known as liberal democrats. The ACA was always a 'poison pill'. It was designed that way, and implemented that way, like a drug dealer getting their dupes hooked, you libs always do crap like this that when left in the wake of administrations past, and congressional control lost, it fails so that you can blame your own failures on the other guys...And people call you libs evil....Wonder why?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    You bet.

    That's the part that pays for everything.

    I love free stuff too.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I know you love free stuff, people my age and younger get to pay for it. I make money off the ACA, and yet Im still against it. Why? Because Im against the lefts legalized plunder.

    A bit of levity.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
