You know, not all of the ACA is bad. It does have some good and necessary points. Protecting the insured from being cancelled after getting ill. And or increasing rates to the point that an insured person can't afford the plan anymore, which is essentially the same as cancelling them. And not being able to deny coverage for pre-existing conditions. All of these kind of things would have been agreeable to most all Americans. Had Obama and the Democrats just began selling the ACA in that kind of simple and understandable way, piece by piece, I think a lot of the ACA would have been acceptable. They however bit off the entire thing and expected us to swallow it whole. No wonder we are choking. Stupid politics. Someday maybe we will elect smart leaders who think logically instead of running to their ideology the moment they have an opening. Iam sure this plan was not written in the few weeks after the Democrats got control in 2008. It was sitting in Ted Kennedys old desk drawer and dusted off and thrown at us when the chance arrived. Not smart and they are paying the price.

Ted Cruz and Mike Lee were absolutely right about Obamacare and what names did Democrats call them?

The GOP needs to stay at arms-length and let the democrats fail.
If they start trying to fix this thing they will get blamed for it.
Offer up the latest House version of the bill to end ACA altogether.
Otherwise, this will end up looking like amnesty for illegals. Say NO right from the start or join the gang.

There is no doubt the democrats and Obama miss handled the ACA but it is still a shame that instead of doing the right thing and allow those that wish to keep their current policy to do so the GOP is using it as an excuse to gut the very things in the ACA that you outline and could actually help.

And the Republican alternative is…

Nothing.

Blame:

* GOP
* George Bush
* Insurance Companies

Does Obama take responsibility for anything?--What ever happened to shovel ready jobs, or Solyndra? The one he took hundreds of billions of our dollars for.

Pagan--we didn't need an alternative.

An entitled society wants pre-existing coverage? Why?

If that happened, people wouldn't get coverage until an illness, and companies would go bankrupt.

Is our society is filling with evil, and corruption.

pagan: you are absolutely wrong. the Republicans will propose something that will appear as something drastically different, but will only be a slight of hand to rile up people like yourself and appease the other Side of the same coin, the republicans. Mike Lee is the best Senator the state of Utah has ever had and is trying to give citizens an option. thank God there are enough people that believe in liberty to understand that 70 some odd years of socialism is now come home to roost. perhaps educating people of its destructive power on the lives of at least 47 million that aren't working or on government dole is worth taking another look. I doubt most will, but there is always a chance. 47 million just need someone that believes in them, rather than wanting to keep them from reaching their potential. if you keep in vain to hope that either party will be the next savior, we will be looking at 60 or 70 million unemployed. but I'm sure by then the government will be promising a flat screen tv. after all, it's about keeping everyone happy, right?
