    Huh - anyone remember precisely what the CBO estimates on this were? As I recall, they had about 2/3rds of uninsured signing up.

    This is what I have the biggest issue with as it relates to the Affordable Care Act. On the one hand, we have millions of uninsured people in this country. On the other (ACA), even if all is implemented sans glitches, there will still be millions of Americans uninsured.

    That the law will not accomplish it's sole intention (as written, anyway) is all that needs to be said about it.

    Two Shoot Joe has been laying low. He was at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier today. Who else could 'splain the ACA better than Biden. I don't know of a living soul with the command of the program and the language that can touch him. I say it's time to activate the Two Shoot.

    Wait, but I thought Obamacare was Godsend? You know, an answer to millions of Americans prayers.

    I'm glad that 78% of the uninsured are uninterested in Obamacare though. Not because it makes Obamacare, the President and his administration look bad, but because it is Unconstitutional and the privacy concerns are worrisome.

    Do you honestly believe that Obamacare solves any of the problems you list here?

    No, in fact it makes them worse. It takes people who have no need or desire for insurance and forces them to do it whether they want to or not. Then it takes people who were doing fine and jacks up their premiums and deductibles to the point that they are required by law to have insurance, but can't afford to actually use it. It's a disaster and just getting worse.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Of course not. That was another in a long, long string of lies.
    Intesting poll, but I would like to see another one after the exchanges are up and running. If Gallup is right, they are usually in the ball park, having 1 in 4 or 25% of all uninsured deciding to pay the fine instead of getting the mandatory insurance probably will put a crimp as to funding the ACA, expect to pay higher premiums because of it. Now it says 22% are planning on getting the insurance, so what are the other half going to do? The ones who have not made up their minds. All I can say is, interesting.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Wrong! A person thinking they are entitled to the efforts of another is.

    Ranked such by false and biased stats.
    Or in other words ... No it's not!

    Are you aware of the claimed flaws with the World Health Organizations Rankings?
