    I agree. There is nothing compassionate or caring about robbing people of their dignity and motivation.

    And yet when the final vote came around liberals voted for it and later ran around the country defending it. Go figure, eh?

Yes you are in denial.
    Exit polling is clear. You are just hacking.

    It was better than what was before. After the passing of the PPACA all we could really hope for at that point is that it would be a stepping stone to actual UHC. I try to be a pragmatist about these things.

    Oh yes, I forgot about that. You guys really wanted UHC, so instead of going towards that path you decide to empower insurance companies in the hope that it would lead to UHC. Because after all, if the plan is successful there will be a real need for UHC.

    Do you guys even hear yourself?

    Seriously, how does corporatism lead to socialism? No wonder people think you guys purposely put together something that would fail. Otherwise, there is no way the ACA could lead to socialism.

    You talk about the minimum wage as it is the all to bring up the middle class, you don't get it and never will. Jobs bring up the middle class and the more jobs there is the more wages go up. But you liberals never can understand that. You thing helping the middle class is given freebies and saying we need to pay our low wage earners more. Try for once growing the economy to employ all worker and then you will see wages go up. As it is now the middle class is making less then when Obama took office, so a liberal says to make the middle class make more is to raise the minimum wage. A liberal will never say we need to put America to work so that prosperity can be shared by every class.

    Under Obama the rich have gotten richer and the middle class has less. Now I'm a market guy and love the gains I've received under Obama, but the fact is under his liberal polices the middle class have been left behind with less than they had before him. That is a fact.

    If you bothered to actually read the positions written by left-leaning members, you would know that the liberal base feels betrayed by Obama's "compromise." Anyway, even the small hope of the PPACA as a stepping stone to UHC is now gone as accomplishing that would require another Democratic super majority, and that's not going to happen for a long, long time.
