    I just did.

    Maybe you didn't understand what was said. Should I rephrase it for you?

    It's easy to type messages anonymously using a online idenity.

    If you tried saying that in person, face to face, that is a recipe for getting injured.

    That's jealousy talking. Your idol strutted out all his promises and the ignorant bought it, only to find out 1] you could not keep your plan and 2] at the end more people than live in my country will have NO coverage.

    Show me where your Obamacare with it's premiums, bureaucracy, pre-approvals and bull**** is even in the same league as what most of the rest of the industrialized world has. At the end of the day you're still 30th or something, behind Cuba and Canada.

    The methods leave more than a little on the table, shouting "ignorant" is actually childish and kind of proves the intent of this thread, the "stupid" bought into this abortion of a law.
    You can only debate someone who has a basic understanding of a topic, and claiming that the Canadian system has no costs....or that everyone in the US has been forced into the ACA, shows that you have little to no knowledge of either system. Further, claiming that "no insurance" is better than having subsidized basic coverage, when most of those who now have coverage when before they had "no coverage" due to cost/preexisting conditions...is ironic writ large.

    Note: I would LOVE to have a socialized single payer system (an expansion of Medicare), but I'll give you a clue.....it has not happened because what did/could pass was a conservative HC scheme. And for many that had no coverage before, that something, as bad as it is, is better than nothing.

    Re: Stupidity of the American Voter?

    My god this is fu**ing mind numbing. Voter turnout was historically low. Not just generally low across the board, but there were relatively fewer Democrats actually voting. This isn't a case of "Americans waking up." There is no indicator that Republicans actually pulled a significant number of Dems or independents. Americans were even more asleep than usual for a mid term election. Don't let your skirts get blown too far up your backside. It was a wave election. Obama is not running in 2016. This wasn't about Democrats or Liberals. It was about Obama. Even Republicans didn't really care that much about this election. You can expect a higher percentage of Democrats to get out and vote in the general election, that is something you can count on. What that means is that Republicans are going to have to shine like diamonds for the next 24 months or they will likely see their gains dissipate. You can bet the Dems will be mobilizing in 2016.

    Stop ignoring election trends and come back to reality.

    Your counter is still a failure, for a 3rd time....because you have, as always, forgotten what the point was that you were supposed to counter:

    FFS...again, stick to C&P, when you go out on a limb and start making argument without the crutch, you fall down REALLY hard.
    Respond with a comment that counters the point, stop C&P'ing NON SEQUITURS.

    So then Gruber and the rest of the people who had a hand in the ACA should be looking over their shoulders?

    Tell me about a policy initiative backed by conservatives that favored higher employment over corporate profits? I can't recall any.

    No, many of the people on this thread probably don't have the courage to say hateful things in person.

    That would be my guess as well.

    How come our fearless leader hasn't weighed in on this yet? I mean, the guy couldn't wait to call out the Cambridge police for acting "stupidly", so it isn't like he's confused about the meaning of the word.
