Most any law of this magnitude requires "solutions" to make it work. Do have any idea how many times the Old-Age Insurance program (Social Security) was amended before it was actually in full operation? Take your fingers out of your ears and stop screaming. The ACA is here to stay. Might as well get used to it.
"Most any law of this magnitude requires "solutions" to make it work".

at least you can admit it doesn't work. Something as complex as health coverage should never have been of this "magnitude", but the libs knew their window for the people controlling power grab was closing fast.

Real case scenario, my daughter. She, and her family, had health insurance she was perfectly happy with. She was paying $480. a month,$3500. deductible,$30. co-pay. Her insurance, Blue Cross/Shield, was dropped due to Obamacare coverage mandates. A comparable plan was offered at $1900 a month,$2500,$50 co-pay. The cost had quadrupled.

Checking the cost of a silver Obamacare plan (middle cost) on the Kaiser Obamacare calculator, her cost under Obamacare wil be $13,300. a year after subsidies. The silver has a $2000. deductible. She will be paying $13300. for a plan similar to what she was paying almost $6000. for previously.

She was a real independent woman, not some whiner complaining about birth control pills.

Harry Reid lied through his teeth about Romney's taxes and never did name his "source".
Pelosi apparently has the same unnamed "source" who told her Republicans want children to go hungry.
Are you really this stupid? Or just unbelievably this gullible?
Hey Dunce, there was no need for Harry Reid to reveal his source. Mitt Romney admitted himself that he cheated on his taxes by revealing excerpts of his last two tax returns. He paid less in taxes then even the minimum 15%. How much did you pay in taxes? I bet that it was more than Multiple-Millions Mitt did. And I know that you're just a few bucks ahead of living in a card board box by the freeway underpass.

The problem is not with the Affordable Care Act. The Affordable Care Act set out the requirements and Nevada chose to create their own exchange. Nothing in the ACA caused the problem. "Basich and his insurance broker, Tamar Burch of Branch Benefits Consultants, said the issue appears to be confusion at the state exchange." Got that?

I won't argue about that statement. I certainly fought the "magnitude" of the ACA when it was in the planning stages for just that reason. I felt it was too all encompassing but it did became law and it is our obligation to see that it succeeds. Just as it is our obligation to see that Obama's term as president is successful whether you voted for him or not. That is the American way.

Oh yeah? Where does that end? I'll tell you. It ends where tyranny's gun control always ends: gun confiscation. Once that has been accomplished, the next step is extermination. That is the pattern that was historically followed all throughout the bloodiest century in history, the twentieth century. The most common cause of unnatural death during that time? Democide: Death by government. It's resulted in nearly 300 million people being murdered at the hands of their own governments. That's not a fear tactic, it's just the facts.

there is no reason for the federal government to grow every year. It should be a fixed entity with specific, laid out, duties. Someone should put those duties down on paper. What should we call that paper ?

Sorry but I don't believe you. Blue Cross/Shield is one of the most expensive insurance plans. There is no way your daughter was only paying $480 a month unless that was her employee contribution. In 2012, in New Jersey, the average employee policy was costing $16,900 with the average employee contribution $4,204.00 a year. As we all know, private individual policies are more expensive. Something isn't adding up. Care to explain?

Anyone who supports abortion has to be a liberal, it has never been about women's health or women's rights, it is about money for the Democrats: "The child-killing industry: Abortion is the oldest and most lucrative revenue stream to the American Left. On average, about 4,000 babies are killed via abortion in America each day, and the average cost is about $500 per kill. That's $2 million dollars per day, and if you multiply that by 365 days a year you come up with a $730 million annual industry that produces a lot of potential Democratic Party donations from Planned Parenthood, the leading child-killer in the country.

Now you know why Democrats will sell-out racial and ethnic minorities as well as UAW or Teamster's workers they claim to represent, but never sell-out the child killers. There's gold in them dismembered babies.

Without access to the money produced by the child-killing industry, the American Left disintegrates. Especially when you realize that an organization like Planned Parenthood, in addition to being the largest child killer in our nation, is also a mechanism to divert millions of dollars to its political arm — the Planned Parenthood Action Fund — that is nothing less than a shill for liberal Democrat candidates and legislation".

People who call themselves Republicans or Libertarians might want to think again about abortion. Any one who says they are for abortion is funding the liberals.

Sure. Success is when you actually "win" at something. Now here's my question to you: define "winning?"
