Hey a Guy with a Brain - The Congressional Budget Office still says the cost of
health care will be less under the ACA than it otherwise would have been, and it
will reduce the federal deficit.Nobody said that inflation would
cease to exist. In other words, "You don't know what you
think you know."
'Gary O' - You don't know what you think you know.Proof-positive #1: Obama and the Dems flat out said numerous, numerous
times that health care prices would drop for most, if not all of us, once we all
"carried the load".It ain't happening.....
Republicans are liberals
Hi CatsSomewhere in Time, UTThanks for reaching out.I realize that logic, and the acknowledgement of cause-and-effect
relationships are pretty much universally ignored in "Conservative"
circles. And it's easy to understand why.Those harsh realities
are ignored by Republican "Conservatives" because Republican
"Conservatives" are the very source of many serious problems. I can
understand how it must be difficult for Republicans to admit that. And
that's why they habitually deny otherwise easily recognizable facts.BTW, that phenomenon is called "Denial," and it's
extremely common amongst Right Wingers. It's a way of psychologically
coping with shattering truths, that if recognized, would crush their self-esteem
and make a mockery of their false beliefs and unworkable ideologies.I get it. And I sympathize, and I'm so very glad I'm not a
Republican.Everything I said is true. "Conservative"
legislators had every opportunity to provide constructive input to the ACA, and
most of them absolutely refused.They purposefully REFUSED to
represent their constituents in a futile attempt at grandstanding.I'm sorry Cats, but government-hating, ideologically-driven, and
easily-propagandized people who elect ineffective representation might well
deserve that kind of representation.
Gosh, GaryO, how could we have all missed something so simple??
Dear GaryO: Wow! When I see that kind of logic, it helps me to understand how
Obama got elected in the first place. I guess denial is not a river in
Egypt.The Unaffordable Care Act is a disaster which was wholly and
solely perpetrated by the Democrats on the American people and the Democrats are
going to have to account for it.At this point I've decided the
only response to this mess is to not get sick.
It really is a pity that people in rural areas have to pay more than their urban
counterparts for health insurance. What is the root cause?The cause
of this problem, as is the case with so many of America's problems, is
American "Conservatism."Most rural areas are heavily
Republican. And these "Conservative" states elect
"Conservative" representatives. And it just so happens that
when these Conservative politicians had a chance to weigh in on what would go
into the ACA, they refused to do so. Most Republican congressmen and senators
refused to have anything to do with the ACA. They made NO suggestions about what
should go into the law. They merely sought to prevent the passage of the bill.
So OBVIOUSLY the best interests of their constituents were NOT at all
represented in the contents of the law by the "Conservative"
representatives they chose to represent them.These
"Conservative" politicians completely abrogated their responsibility to
their constituents.That is what can happen when you elect
"Conservatives" into positions of power and public trust.Can
anyone think of a remedy to that problem?
marxist: So, it's better to have 1/3 of the population dealing with the
"horror story" of being denied access because they can't afford it?
For every ACA horror story there are at least two reporting new affordable
access to health care. There may be some fixes to the ACA, but I can assure you
that we're not going back to the old setup where 1/3 of the population was
denied access, where the insured were maxed out, and others denied coverage
altogether because of preexisting conditions.
Higher rates for just the Obama voters only.Now that would be fair.
"The affordable care act will save the average American family $2500 on
their healthcare insurance premiums each year". What happened to all the
promises we were told Obamacare would provide? The middle class will bare the
burden of the high costs of Obamacare in higher premiums, co-pays and
We are being succumbed by the wiles of ambitious and scheming leaders who
oppress us with burdensome taxes, who lull us with hollow promises, who even
encourage loose and lascivious living.
The ACA is a mistake that fell short of the single payer system we need.
