    Well, that's more a subjective opinion. It's moving slow enough to keep working on it. And frankly, it's bad enough now that at worse it would from the fire to the fire. But it's likely to be some improvement.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    How is its bad enough? My HC options and rates are fine. Most people I know have HC, and yes some use State HC.

    Many are OK with their present plans, but fear losing the plans they have, and with reason. Many like myself have seen premiums increase and benefits decrease. Employer based insurance has some probelms, but few can really afford insurance on their own.

    Hurry up and do something.... even if it is wrong.

    Typical response from the USA government.

    All things have to be while they can be done. Again, this was just a step. It isn't over. Those who care need to quit whining and encourage their leaders to work together to improve it. Better care, less cost, more access. That should be our effort and leave the Beckish nonsense at the door.

    If you believe this law moves the USA along that path, you are delusional.

    Perhaps you can do more than name call. Explain why not.

    So, the new system will be just as ****ty as the old system, but a different kind of ****ty? That's brilliant! Has anyone taken a singl second to think about how to pay this? Or, is that why there are hundreds of new ways to fleece money from American citizens are hidden in the bill?

    Don't know if can be as ****ty as the present system. But we'll see. However, I still encourage everyone to see it as a beginning and not an end. More work really needs to be done, so let's continue to push our leaders to keep working on it.

    The American people are shockingly apathetic. People would rather bitch about a Health Care Law than go out and protest it. If it is found to be unconstitutional, then it will be repealed. That's called the democratic process if im not mistaken, folks. :P
