Boehner is at fault.
He won't let the House vote on a clean bill.
As recently as a couple of months ago studies show long waiting periods to see a general practitioner especially for new patients. It usually takes a referral from an general practitioner to get into see a specialist.
Most new patients in the state of Massachusetts have to wait anywhere between 40 to 71+ days to get into see a doctor. Experts have been warning for years this would be the case under Obamacare too.

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.
ACA is a direct attack on the insurance sector of the economy.
It is riddled with numerous tax increases many that have nothing to do with the healthcare industry to help pay for it. We haven't felt the brunt of all these taxes yet, 14 more will be implemented starting January 1, 2014.
ACA is causing job layoffs and forcing many into part time status so the employer can avoid all the additional mandates resulting in high costs in covering their employees.
None of this is supported by the majority on the right. The left in their game of social justice is killing capitalism through corporatism one private sector at a time.
Not really. "You give, you get" works in any political system, and it has worked in the United States, and would have worked for Republicans. It's less a problem of systems and laws and more a problem of culture: partisans in the United Kingdom want their side to make a good trade, partisans in the United States want crushing, glorious victory over every mole hill.Irrelevant, different system, different laws.
In the land of the sugar plum fairies with the make-believe trees. How can we both have a "different system" with "different laws" where compromise does not figure and and yet we can also say Republicans make meaningful compromises in the past five years?BS. The Republicans have been compromising with Democrats for 5 years.
... all of Congress funds the government, and it is shared between Democrats and Republicans. Plus a commanding majority of the public did not want the shutdown, and even if they did, the consequences of a government shut down are bad for all political actors, whereas getting rid of Obamacare is only good for Republicans. You can't threaten something that is bad for everyone to get something that is only good for yourself and expect results. That's identical to saying that Republicans should rule society when they have an electoral mandate but also whenever they don't.And so no Imperative for the Republicans to work with them. The house funds government, and it's run by Republicans.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
