Small thinkers rush to pile on before taking a careful look at all the circumstances of a problem. These losers panic and scream "This will never work, give up, this is terrible!". Wiser "sharper pencils in the box" say "Wait a minute, let's think this out. I think we might be able to make this work.".
Sit back and watch how this pans out before you take your victory lap.

Jim Crow was "the law", moron. Get over that.
Yes, you spoiled brat. That's the whole idea. Just exactly where were you when the ACA was being debated? There were no secrets. The whole idea was to force insurance on those who were too foolhardy to take responsibility for themselves. Those of the "I don't want it or need it" mentality. Those who have taken comfort in knowing that emergency rooms can't turn them away....leeches. Unlike Jim Crow laws that segregated people from each other, you are being required to join hands with everyone else. Get over it.

<quoted text> It is you democrats/progressive that enact tax laws that prevent people from accumulating wealth. Your big government tax and spend for everything under the sun is the reason so many people are hurting in this country. Every time someone starts to get ahead you sweep in and suck all the money out. Democrats/progressive have been at the core of why people remain poor in this country!!!!
Tax laws that favor the wealthy aid in that redistribution of wealth to the wealthy.

Look at your "fair" tax. You would give corporations a 35% tax break & Rich people a huge tax break & who would make up that lost revenue? Yep the middle class & poorer people. You are all for this.

Bush handed billions to the wealthy in his tax cuts.

The wealthy buy politicians & they shape the rules to their favor.

Been going on for decades under Republican & Democrat Presidents.

But hey, pushing wealth to the wealthy is OK in your la la land & correcting that is somehow communism.

This is how duped you people are.

though Romenycare does have a nice ring to it.
It's actually a better political move for Republicans that obama got reelected, lie like shit, get all the blame for obamakare and failure of his lame admin for the next 3 years than blaming Romney for a miserable debacle like obamkare.....

facebook hates obamakare: Read the hate-filled posts and see ads pandering to blacks, losers, and Hispanics...

If not for obamakare, Ted Cruz and the Tea Party would not have been a great success..

Snubbing the nose at the ACA...?

Hospitals...

"A few, like No. 1-rated Johns Hopkins in Maryland, are mandated under state law to accept all insurance companies. Other than that, the hospital with the largest number of insurance companies is University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland with just four. Fully 11 of the 18 hospitals had just one or two carriers."

CHART:'Winners And Losers From Obamacare'

University of Michigan professor and senior Brookings fellow Justin Wolfers on Thursday created a chart depicting the "winners and losers" under the Affordable Care Act, sourced to a Ryan Lizza article that used estimates from M.I.T. economist Jon Gruber, a former adviser to Mitt Romney.

The chart portrays the degree to which Republicans and critics of Obamacare have amplified the media's coverage around the relatively small percentage of Americans who have received cancellation notices for stripped-down individual market plans that failed to meet the benefit requirements of the ACA.

Gruber, called the architect of Romney's successful health care plan in Massachusetts, argues that of the six percent of Americans who buy their own health care on the individual market, three percent would have negligible change to their policies. He also addresses President Obama's memorable but over-simplified promise, that if you like your plan, you would be able to keep it. From Lizza's writeup:

“We’ve decided as a society that we don’t want people to have insurance plans that expose them to more than six thousand dollars in out-of-pocket expenses,” Gruber said. Obama obviously should have known that his blanket statement about “keeping what you have” could not apply to this class of policyholders.

Gruber summarized his stats: ninety-seven per cent of Americans are either left alone or are clear winners, while three per cent are arguably losers.“We have to as a society be able to accept that,” he said.“Don’t get me wrong, that’s a shame, but no law in the history of America makes everyone better off.”

No they don't. Emergency care is not preventive care. Putting off going to the doctor because you don't have insurance kills people.

Worrying about what other people are doing instead of working to better yourself is the highlight of being a progressive/democrat. See, you would keep the poor poorer just to stop what you perceive as the wealthy don't get wealthier. I have news for you. You could take everything the wealthy people have and within 10 years they will have gotten it back plus some. It is their nature. It is in their DNA. You libtards are clueless!!!!

no surprise that. those redstates do love their federal welfare.
happy now?
Sure they do. That's why so many red states refused to create exchanges and expand Medicaid. Obama said the states share of the additional Medicaid would never exceed 10%, but we all know how worthless his promises are.... States can't print money like lying Democrat Presidents can.

AKA (in it's current state) as COMMUNISM.

com·mu·nism
noun \&#712;käm-y&#601;- &#716;ni-z&#601;m,-yü- \

: a way of organizing a society in which the government owns the things that are used to make and transport products (such as land, oil, factories, ships, etc.) and there is no privately owned property
Full Definition of COMMUNISM
1
a : a theory advocating elimination of private property

SPECIFICALLY-

b : a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed

In tbis case -the already socialist givverment wanting to do nothing but CONTROL and dig into the private FREE MARKET and pockets of OTHERS.

And it's Bullchit.

The current american communist act does NOT belong on oh-so-hackable Public webs guised as givverment anything, BREACHING HIPPA violations. It belongs in givverment socialist offices with all the OTHER socialist programs, for prpoer VERIFICATION and IDENTIFICATION purposes for those who CHOOSE to sign up.
And it does NOT have ANY business robbinghoodieTic thieving ANY dolluhs by force from ANY citizen OR from the free market suppliers.

Because COMMUNISM stinks!

REDO the UNFUNDED, UNVERIFIABLE, HIPPA and Constiutional breaching american communist act!
CAP, CURB (get a damn) B-U-D-G-E-T, blance and live with IN the means of of America again-NOT beyond them!

The economy AND Reality demands it!

T.E.A.!!!

Independent voters --FOR the American working class-NOT communisTICally divide and drain (MORE) against it!!
