How in the hell they have managed to get people to back this is beyond me. Republicans are right that its garbage.

Its the same garbage they all supported not too long ago. The same garbage their messiah. Mittens Romney, forced on his people.

We have one group of idiots cheering this fascist crap after getting sold out on universal after 08, and another group of idiots hating on it after they nominated Romney, the guy who put it into play.

I love Republican voters thinking their party would actually defund this. Like the insurance companies dont have them all by the balls too. Please.

This entire charade is both maddening and depressing. This is just another example of mass stupidity having a very negative effect on everyone.

No one has even done the math on it. They havent even taken their income and figured out where they are on the poverty scale and figured it out.

Over a thousand pages written by the insurance companies, probably with the help of some other corrupted groups.

Its almost as if no one can see how this turns out. The government is literally choosing bombs and banks over education and jobs.

And you think they wont choose bombs and banks over your little subsidy? What in the fuck?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Another excellent post TD. Completely agree. You are one of the few here that aren't fooled by our ridiculous false Good cop/Bad cop political dichotomy.

  • Remove insurance companies and end profit driven healthcare. (Obama feeding us into the corporate heathcare cash cow is crap. Only worse is the republicans who offer us nothing with glee.)

  • Why does the U.S. always have to reinvent the wheel.? Our ranking is 1st in the World in % of GDP health costs(by far), but 37th in the world in overall evaluation. We can use the systems of nations who have already developed far superior systems than ours. Even cheat by cherrypicking the best aspects of various nations.

  • The U.S. has an unconscionable obesity rate. We can't allow ourselves to be fed crap by corporations without a cost. Add a healthcare tax to all foods that are unhealthy(fatty, sugary, processed, GMO,etc. Also all things that contribute to ill health(fuel consumption level of cars, corporate polluters, etc, etc) Put that tax in a public heathcare reserve to assist in healthcosts.

  • Regulate the profits of doctors, hospitals,pharmaceuticals,services,etc. If a doctor isn't satisfied with making 10x the average citizen's income, maybe he is not altruistic enough to provide care.
