I'm not a Liberal, I'm a proud Conservative who's not naive enough to buy into the promises of " Free healthcare " for everyone. Single Payer would be anything and everything but " free ".
If it's so cost effective, if it's such a practical and viable alternative then why did Vermont bail on single payer ?? They bailed because it wasn't " free ". They bailed because the tax increases needed to make single payer happen would have had a severe impact on their local economy.
Whether your'e Vermont or the USA, you can't fund a new and massive entitlement while simultaneously destroying your economy and driving away your tax base. Debt is real and consequential, no matter what the MMT fairy says.
The American people were lied to more than once by this President and his party and because of that, and a pathetic economic recovery, and disastrous foreign policy decisions the Democrats were persona non grata in the 2014 Mid-terms. Since ObamaCare isn't going to magically morph into a good law just because the SC ruled its favor, since it's going to continue to hurt the Middle Class, increase out of pocket cost and continue to be a drag on the economy, the Democrats are going to be even less popular in 2016.
If the SC had ruled in the GOP's favor, the GOP would be forced to fix the unfixable and then would have been blamed in the upcoming elections. There's always a bright side.
Obama bragged after the SC decision, but what the SC decision really did was keep the Albatross that is the ACA hanging around the necks of the people that forced it down our throats. The Democrat party.
I look forward to more Democrat candidates in 2016 NOT talking about their Presidents signature legislation and I look forward to Hillary Clinton avoiding the issue also while more Americans feel the brunt of the last 8 years of foolish and destructive progressive initiatives.

That's the second time you're brought up cost-sharing as a negative, just in the last few thread pages.Since ObamaCare isn't going to magically morph into a good law just because the SC ruled its favor, since it's going to continue to hurt the Middle Class, increase out of pocket cost and continue to be a drag on the economy, the Democrats are going to be even less popular in 2016.
Let me make sure I understand. Health care should never be free. Nor should people share in the costs they incur.
Is that where we're at? The "proud conservative" position? I honestly can't tell if you realize that in effect you've adopted the left's argument. You're in fine company, most of the right has at this point.
