    not likely, I'm not paying that much attention to what you type. All I see is how I and every other American that opposed this thing are all wet. And you know better than everyone else what the future holds once the ACA has invaded the lives of every last single American They will never understand how they got along without it?

    The ACA will probably go down in history as the pivotal point that saves the American economy with the net present value of the unfunded liability of Medicare being $43 trillion. That is the single biggest, financial time bomb that this country faces in the near future without something being done about it.

    Re: What does disability mean to you and who qualifies?

    Although I'll absolutely acknowledge fraud within the disabilities system, I don't think all of these "examples" have been cases of fraud.

    Vertigo is a real disability; Seriously, some Vertigo patients just fall over every couple of minutes, it'd be a disaster in a work environment. Driving is out of the question, due to spontaneous loss of motor control. Manual labor is an industrial accident waiting to happen. Due to the mind numbing medicines they have to take, even a desk job is a problem for many patients. But, seeing them at Home Depot wouldn't be an "AH HA!" moment, since their bodies are fine. They can lift and move and things like that, but not in a consistently productive manner. That's the real qualification; it's not whether they can physically "do" the task, it's whether they could do it consistently. Maybe, some of these cases of "fraud", are really legitimate cases of disability due to mental illness or neurological issues. Just something to think about.

    Once again you are building straw men. You stated that ACA was a government takeover. It is not. You have not even made an attempt to defend your comment, and just keep making **** up and diverting. Kinda revealing.

    That's just extremist assumptions combined with alarmist theories. If the medical industry hadn't been reigned in somewhat with the exploding costs by providing a new source of income, into an already strained system it would've of changed dramatically in the near future in a seriously negative way. Between the increasing aged population and medical advancements we would've had no other option than to socialize medicine like almost every other country.

    If just some of the waste, fraud, tax dodging, pork barrel projects and defense spending can be addressed, then restructuring the entitlement and welfare programs will be much easier. It won't take near as much change to correct them as pundits seem to want scare everyone into believing. When steering a large ship you make little corrections to redirect it's trajectory, not big sudden turns that will flip it over. The tactics of fear mongering, emotion driven ideology of the extremes and gerrymandering as a means to a political ends is probably the worst problems we actually have.

    you have already made my point time and again, guess you missed that eh

    Regardless of your pitter patter your Obamacare is a slow motion trainwreck that will ruin millions all the while you'll blame the GOP?
