    Sorry - I haven't visited a Politico story or the site since they changed their comment section to Facebook required and I have no intention of going back - a matter of principle. As I said above, if the CBO has issued a revised report, by all means present it and I'll review it - otherwise, the 20 million figure they presented in 2012 still stands.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    pretty funny. that's why the country fought a war to decide if we should keep it of get rid of it eighty five years later.

    should i list a couple more? ok.

    not letting women vote
    Jim Crow
    ruining a kid's life because they get caught with a bag of weed
    treating homosexuals like second class citizens

    all of those things are worse than the ACA. the ACA is a poor solution to the health care disaster in America, but it isn't worse than those things.

If you allow for all of those differences, the US compares quite favorably in healthcare outcomes.
    you and i get on pretty well, and we're never going to agree about this. we've hashed it out in many threads. my next move is to point out that we're one of the few first world countries in which getting a terminal illness can bankrupt you. i think that's stupid, and that no market solution is going to fix it. you disagree. maybe we should just agree to disagree on this issue. either way, i hope that you are having a good weekend.

    LOL. I've got both experience in the business world AND in healthcare.

    Try again.
    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.

    Do you believe he's responsible for...

    A. The aging population who's increasingly living longer while collecting medicare and social security?

    B. The veteran's benefits from the wars in Iraq?

    C. The unfunded medicare part D prescription drug plan?

    If you do believe Obama is responsible for these spending areas would you support Obama issuing massive cuts in these three areas?
    Not even a nice try. Those expenses amount to pennies compared to the massive entitlement system that Barack "Hussein" Obama has greatly added to.

    Getting a terminal disease can bankrupt you in any country...single payer or not. Single payer is not going to take care of lost income or long term hospice care or take care of your family after you are gone. And even in the US, a terminal illness does not necessarily have to bankrupt you if you plan ahead. One of my late uncles was a painter who early in life was exposed to asbestos. Much later in life, he developed mesothelioma. He was not a wealthy man, however he managed to cover his medical bills and provide for his family because he planned ahead. He passed away not owing any debts. My point is that market based reform has a much better chance at solving all of the issues then a government run system that without a doubt is going to gradually cut funding and services. It happens with all government programs. Look at what has happened to single payer in Canada. But you are right....I think we will have to agree to disagree on this issue. And I hope you are having a terrific weekend as well.

    Then let's summarize it for you: Mercer just did a survey of businesses to get a sense of whether the employer mandate has led to any erosion of employer-based coverage. Turns out it hasn't.

    The exact same findings as every other study or survey of that question.

    And again, except for the CBO.

    And since the employer mandate has not been fully enforced if it even is at this time, it's hard to be so definitive from a distance.

    I do appreciate, however, that liberals are always 100% certain of every policy initiative they espouse, be it the ACA, climate change, green energy, etc. Whatever they choose to support, it's always the absolute best thing ever with nary a problem in sight.

    Canada is a first world country - Canada has universal, single payer healthcare - in Canada, depending on your illness, you can go bankrupt in the process of purchasing drugs or treatments necessary to prolong life if you're unfortunate enough to need a drug or treatment the government finds too expensive and not cost effective.

    You either don't have any real business experience or you are intellectually dishonest. I'll let you decide. Helping your dad at the office does not count.
