    But your opponents struck down your opponents. Did you thank Reagan and Bush for the rulings?

    I'm sure Obama would thank anyone who asks. He likes winning. Victories are still victories. Losers are still losers. Don't you agree?

    He would not thank the presidents that caused these rulings?

    If only he liked his party to win instead of just himself.

    Yes, now that SCOTUS has ruled, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. If you like your plan you can keep your plan. And now health care costs will come down as well.

    I disagree. Obama has always tried to work with both parties with little success until now apparently. Thanks for pointing out that the vindication of the ACA was also a bipartisan victory even if it was unintentional. You should mention that to him. It would make his day.

    No, Obama specifically hates working with the democrat party. Why else would his presidency see a 130 seat swing in the house and 30 seat swing in the senate away from democrats?

    Give it a break. Health plans have come and gone long before the ACA. If you want to make an omlet you need to break some eggs. There was nothing so wonderful about our HC system that it couldn't be touched. Soon most will wonder what took us so long.

    S
    ept. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Estimates of U.S. health-care spending for the next five years have been lowered by two federal agencies, and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is getting much of the credit.
    U.S. health spending in 2019 will be $4 trillion, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said this week, or $500 billion less than the agency projected in 2010 when President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul became law. That announcement followed by a week a report from the Congressional Budget Office lowering its five-year cost estimates.
    Obamacare has been criticized by Republicans as costly and unsustainable. Now, four years after its arrival, the law’s mandated program cuts and the medical practices it encourages -- limiting unneeded procedures, and keeping people out of the hospital longer -- are cited by economists as key ingredients in trimming the nation’s medical bill. While the recession has had an influence on the cost slowdown, it doesn’t explain it all, according to policy analysts and the CBO.

    A swing is like a pendulum and in 2016 it will be swinging the other way. That is life.
