    ACA Architect: 'The Stupidity Of The American Voter' Led Us To Hide Obamacare's True Costs From The Public

    A few months back, he was caught on tape admitting that Obamacare doesn’t provide subsidies for federally-run insurance exchanges; it’s now the topic of a new case before the Supreme Court......snip~

    Yea, I saw that article. I'm not defending the architecture of the ACA but it does address some of the important problems with the healthcare system. No doubt, Obama and most political leaders think the general populace are dumb dumbs. I mean, we do vote for them....lol

Once legislation is passed to Strip away the Insurance bail outs.....then remove the medical device tax? Its called governing an actions speak louder than words.

    Won't be much of a platform needed to run on there. Then it will be cleaning up BO's mess overseas and with Foreign policy. Hillary will be in the news and all of the BO's failures will be fresh in everyones face, again.

So, no, it wasn't likely that anything changed due to ACA.
    What really is stupid is the liberal rhetoric that this is a federal program vs an individual and state responsibility. Just like minimum wage, states handle their own issues and that is where healthcare belongs. Rhetoric trumps reality in the liberal world and you prove it every day. You do not pay for the uninsured in TX, I do

    "We" is the state and local governments along with the individual. This isn't a Federal problem even though everything is a federal problem in the liberal world

    Again, I understand why it is that you stay away from trying to express your views in your own words and instead rely on C&P.

    If the GOP tries to overturn the ACA, it will play right into the Dems hands. Just wait and see what happens if the SC rules in favor of King.

    Right, vote for the liberals and their one size fits all programs so Federal tax dollars can be used for state and local uses especially for the Democrat base

    Oh please!

    All this proves is that socialism is alive and well in Canada and that at least one of them is easily baffled.

    He lives in Victoria where there are three kinds of people, socialist union members working for the government, retired union workers and a few who actually get things done. Here in BC the labor movement is ALL public sector and members of the socialist New Democratic Party.

    This is a classic NDP fill-in-the blanks LTE which the NDP uses extensively.

    This guy is part of the political spectrum that lost the election two years after leading the Liberals by 22% for three years, their campaign was a carbon copy of Obama's including the old saw "raise the minimum wage"

    They have become a laughingstock here, their new leader was acclaimed because no one else wanted it

    How many times does a complete lie need to be corrected before you admit you were wrong? I have showed you multiple times that Tx hospitals receive federal dollars for the uninsured.

    Cruz and a few others are for going after Repealing the Community age based rating. Which even some Democrats will join in that. I think Paul Ryan will be into that too.
