The only way to fix a BAD law is to rewrite.
Nothing is dumber than trying to willy nilly implement a law as it will involve numerous challenges to the legitimacy of it in courts.
If it doesn't work as written-do a re-do.

So calling others 'comrade' is natural to you.

And as for Alinsky, you people rewrote the book and improved on it!

Some urban legends die hard and this is one of them.

Heritage ditched the idea when they found it was unworkable.

A state run program is very different from the Feds grabbing control of the Insurance industry which was previously a state issue.

I didn't think Heritage is considered conservative at this time. Isn't it Libertarian?

I know what I am posting.

Not that I agree with the poster your responded to, but you are not fairing well here.
Obama did not create races-America has always been a melting pot of various cultures and races.
Well let's see son....

First the indians were pushed to the point of extinction.

Then slave labor imported from Africa as personal property to work on plantations

But the improvement came with contracts to import Chinese workers.

Wow... your melting pot sure seems to have a lot of little pots in it! You must not be red, yellow or black!

One Man's Obamawreck Nightmare
"I live in New Jersey, but work for a small company based out of Massachusetts. For years, we were all insured through the company from a plan that originated in Massachusetts. However, as soon as Obamacare was passed, we were "audited" by the insurance company, and it turns out only 50 percent of our company is based in Massachusetts, and therefore we did not qualify as a company under the law. Apparently, you need 51 percent based in the state. About five days prior to our insurance policy renewal, we were told we could not (renew), and I had to scramble to purchase a much more expensive individual policy with much higher costs.
"Fast-forward two years. I now receive a new letter from my insurance company, Horizon Blue Cross,(informing me) that the plan that I have now is being discontinued and I need to pick a new plan.
"On Oct. 1, I tried to get into the exchange for New Jersey that is run by the federal government. I earn too much for a subsidy, but I wanted to see what my options were and how much more this was going to cost.
"I created an account and tried for four days to get in. Each time it said my password was invalid. I tried to use the "forgot password" option so they could send me a link to reset. When I got the link, the system kept saying that it didn't recognize my user account. When I tried to re-create the user account, it told me that one already existed. I called the number several times, and they all told me the same thing: Try back later. The glitches are being worked out.
"I (then) created a new account under (my wife's) name. After several attempts, I was able to get in. Over the weekend, I spent at least four hours trying to fill out the application. Each time, the website crashed. When I got back to work on Monday, I tried one more time. Lo and behold, the application was submitted. At this point, President Obama must be thinking 'great, a success story.'
"Well, my options came back, and voila: According to the government, I'm not eligible for any private plans. I received a notice that my entire family is only eligible for Medicaid! I make a decent salary. I'm not eligible for a subsidy, let alone Medicaid.
"This morning my wife received a call. Apparently, it was the exchange. She explained to them that we are not eligible for Medicare or Medicaid. The person on the phone told her, "That is what the system says you are eligible for. If you want, you can file an appeal."
"So now back to a change in plans. I currently have a Point of Service that covers benefits 70 percent after a large deductible, with somewhat large co-pays for doctors. Horizon Blue Cross does offer a similar plan (to the one being canceled) for about the same, but the problem is that my children's pediatricians are not in it (so much for keeping your doctors).
"The only plans that the doctors take involve a 40 percent deductible with higher co-pays. So now I have fewer options and not more. There is another new company offering coverage where I am, but it has zero out-of-network benefits and a smaller network. Either way, everything is changing for me with higher costs.
The whole process is a joke. The automatons who know nothing are just collecting a government check and getting health care paid for by me with my tax dollars, when I cannot even get my own."
In sum: Obama lied.
His health plan died.
In many cases you can't keep your doctors.
You can't sign up in 10 minutes for health care.
You're being steered toward a government plan you don't qualify for or want.
And you can't get your personal information back from the online Obamawreck black hole.
1-800-T-O-T-A-L-F-A-I-L.
So his company quit offering him health insurance & its Obama's fault.

If he were better informed he would know he qualified for Medicaid before he even went on line.
Yeah

The party is, in fact, going through a morphing phase. Newer and younger fearless and plain-speaking voices are emerging. Like a butterfly from its cocoon - a beautiful sight.
The party also learned a valuable lesion after 2012 that won't happen again. Never assume the masses are using common sense and paying attention - but take the message directly to them.
And create a massive "get the vote out" grassroots movement to make sure these people get to the polls. We actually learned that from the Democrats in 2012.
More like party hijacking terrorists who can't stand on their own two feet.

We know now we were wrong. Harry Reid is the power behind the throne. Our bad.
There are now only two factions controlling the Democratic Party. Harry Reid represents the institutional political machine, and Vallerie Jarrett represents the indoctrinated anti-American faction - communists allied with any other enemy of the United States. The institutional political machine represented by Harry Reid doesn't care that the faction they acquiesce to is intent on destroying what Americans think the US still is. They have an arrangement where they will share power in the resultant government after the constitutional government is eliminated.
The truth is, Marxist do not share power, and they will eliminate the institutional political machine at the first opportunity. The institutional machine isn't about ideologue. It's only about power, and the politicians. The Marxists are insane ideologues.

As long as the American population is kept ignorant, we will continually be in this cycle of being in a conflict about things that don't even exist, like this "government shut down" hoax.

Well nevermind about Alinsky - even though Hillary Clinton DID write her thesis on him.

Because I know you and "USSR"1680 or something and sonic and LCN would have defended Republicans to the teeth just like you're doing with the Democrats if Republicans had written their own version of health care reform and passed it behind closed doors using bribes by the Republican House Minority leader and the Republican Senate Majority leader because it was the "democratic process" in action.

And I know you would not expect Democrats to want to change even one or two things in it and be submissive when Republicans refused to negotiate with them even if they represented the other half of the country and their best interests too.

So the subject is closed.

Hostage-Takers Call Comparisons to Tea Party “Hurtful”
Posted by Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—A group representing America’s hostage-takers today blasted President Obama for his repeated comparisons between them and the Tea Party Republicans, calling his remarks “degrading and hurtful.”
The complaint came from the National Alliance of Hostage-Takers and Blackmailers, a watchdog group that monitors negative images of extortionists in the media.
“As professional hostage-takers, we never take hostages unless we have a well-thought-out plan, realistic demands, and a clear exit strategy,” read the group’s official statement.“Any comparison between what we do and these inane Tea Party antics are derogatory and unacceptable.”
The statement continued,“For years, our members have been subjected to offensive Hollywood stereotypes of hostage-takers as crazed madmen, cackling evildoers, and worse. The President’s hurtful remarks only reinforce those negative images.”
Later in the day, White House press spokesman Jay Carney offered an apology to the group:“As you can imagine, in the heat of a crisis we often say things we don’t mean. The President regrets any hurt his remarks may have caused.”
Mr. Carney said that in order to avoid offending other groups in the future, the President would resist the temptation to call the Tea Party Republicans terrorists, lunatics, or babies
lLeftwing ghetto terrorists, lunatics, orlosers??
