    Please note it took until mid 2012 to get back to the numbers Obama inherited and mid 2014 to get back to the December 2007 levels. You keep defending the indefensible, why?
    Not to mention many of the so called improved employment numbers do not account for the millions who gave up trying to find employment and accepted food stamps.

    It's already too heavy.

    The PPACA is here to stay. Deal with it, Republicans. Stop living in the past or thinking you can return to the past and start looking forward.
    I am not a republican....and I do not have to deal with it. I am exempt from it. Repeal or not...obamacare is going to collapse under it's own weight.

    I wonder if at any time during my life someone will actually propose a healthcare law that positively impacts those of us who have been paying for our own healthcare insurance during our working lives, you know....make healthcare affordable for everyone and not just the people who need the rest of us to subsidize them and their families. Dare to dream....

    This and the SC ruling on gay marriage. It's a bad day to be a conservative, you could almot pity them.

    It's significantly lighter than it was even designed to be. Hundreds of billions of dollars lighter, in fact. The transition implementation period (2010-2014) is now over, which is why most of the right's favorite gripes have evaporated. The right's blazing hope that somehow it wouldn't work or somehow could be made to collapse has dimmed, flickered, and finally been snuffed out.

    Time to move on to the next stage of grief.

    You have a $30,000 plan.

    Who buys a luxury car and then complains about how expensive their car is? Oh right, you.

    I'm not an island. I have friends and family who have healthcare needs, or did you think you were the only one? By the way, if healthcare was affordable, I wouldn't need a $30,000 plan.

    Unbelievable.

    Well, prices have been rising more slowly since the ACA went into effect, so that's at least something, but if you actually want to see the prices get under control, the only way to do that is single payer. A public option might help, but only single payer really solves the problem.
