    When this piece of crap was being rammed down our throats none of you partisan hacks had any concerns about costs, or infringement on rights, ect.

    Obamacare was supposed to be utopia. So awesome that it had to be rammed through using shady reconciliation tactics on Christmas Eve at like 2 AM. Now that the truth it out and it's a big stinker, dishonest hacks are trying to have it both ways. Sorry, not going to let you clowns get away with it.

    France may not be the best model.

    Sure, they pay less than half as much as we do, but they're still above the median.

    If America is really "exceptional", then we should be able to come up with an exceptional health care system.

    France may not be the cheapest but it is consistently ranking in the top 3 countries in healthcare services along with Norway and Denmark... italy, spain usually get in there too, Austria. Of course, you discount countries like Singapore and Andorra because they're city states, not proper countries. And by your own chart, it's cheaper than both Norway and Denmark.

    So, now you want not only less expensive, but quality as well. That's going to be difficult. We could copy France, of course, and halve our costs while making it into the top three, but then, our government doesn't want to copy anyone else. If we did that we wouldn't be exceptional.

    What we have now, of course, is simply exceptionally high costs.

    So...Buffet made his anti-Obamacare comments way back in 2010, eh? Weren't the liberals listening to him? Or do they only hear what they want to hear.

    Anyway, every time I hear Buffet say something...whether I agree with him or not...I have an uncontrollable desire to look under the rug, behind the drapes or anywhere else he might be hiding his real motivation: Money.
