The Benghazi news seems an indication the the GOP has given up the idea of repealing the ACA.
Well, unlike the ACA, they're making money off the four dead.

Well, their health care plan entails limiting that damage.

And somehow, by magic, everyone get great 'health care.'

After all your whining and complaining, you are basically saying that the ACA is full of "conservative" solutions.
The ACA "Prevents insurers from cancelling policies denying coverage to those with pre-existing conditions".
The ACA "gives small businesses the ability to pool together to offer health care at lower prices".
The ACA provides incentive payments to providers (not the states) by tying payment to quality standards and coordinated care.
The ACA allows for "Health Savings Accounts to create incentives to save for future and long-term care" with a provision that those under 65 will pay a 20% penalty for early withdrawal of funds.
"Costly junk lawsuits": Making it harder to sue for malpractice benefits whom? Certainly not the consumer.
"Universal access programs" guaranteeing access to affordable care for those with pre-existing conditions has already been proven not to work. No matter how you slice it, charging the sick more for insurance coverage than others makes it unaffordable.
"Selling insurance across state lines": States have different laws regulating benefits, consumer protections and financial and solvency requirements. Health insurers do not want to be subject to the insurance and consumer protection laws of the states where their policyholders live. They want them to be subject to the standards of the states where the insurers are located...a state with no standards at all.
As an example, "until 1978, credit card issuers were subject to the interest rate caps in their customers' home states. In California, for instance, cards couldn't charge more than 10% interest, the state limit. But that year the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that credit card issuers could "export" their home state's interest cap." Promptly, the states with high or nonexistent interest rate caps, such as Delaware and South Dakota, became kings of the credit card industry, attracting the consumer credit subsidiaries of Citibank, Wells Fargo and other big banks. One issuer in South Dakota, which counts its credit card industry jobs by the thousands, even put out a card carrying an annual rate of 79.9%. Eventually, Congress stepped in to impose some relatively modest consumer protection rules on the industry--in 2009. So it only took 31 years.
The same thing would happen if health insurers were permitted to export their home states' health insurance standards and regulations. In the same sense that interest rate limits on credit cards no longer exist, coverage standards and rate regulation in the health insurance industry would no longer exist. You'd be able to buy coverage if, and only if, you were a good risk, and it would be the insurer who would decide.(The insurer would set its own price, too.) If that's the insurance market you think we should have, the GOP plan is for you."

Well, since there's no one on here this late, thought I'd spill my guts. Looked up prognosis for melanomas in different stages. Good news is the chances for survival with husband's assumed stage are relatively high. If PET results are good, no worries. Will know in a few more days. It's the not knowing part that's difficult at times. A bit weepy tonight not knowing what the future holds. Comes and goes. At least the waiting is almost over.

But being able to post and vent about politics has made the waiting a little easier. Will just be more distracted the next few days.

Thanks for letting me get that off my chest anyway (whoever's reading this).

Republicans can be criticized for not doing more to address health care reform. But it's not an easy undertaking. The Democrats rejected HillaryCare at one time which was similar to ObamaCare.
What we have now is a partisan tax law that gives too much power over our health care to the federal government, the IRS, politicians and bureaucrats with all the red tape.
If ever there was a time for both sides to sit down and compromise on a mutually doable health care reform, the time was in 2009. Both sides were prepared to come to the table with solutions that were long overdue and both sides could live with. The Democrats blew it.
Delusional much Carol? Mitt Romney signed the same kind of "tax law" as governor of Massachusetts.
Contrary to your ignorant statement the law doesn't give any more power over healthcare to the government than it had before. The only thing the IRS wants to know is if you have coverage, that's all. What red tape Carol? Don't you think that private insurance had multiple forms and paperwork that had to be filled out by providers and subscribers?
And once again Carol the Republicans were not willing to come to the table on anything. Their only tactic was to obstruct and block.
-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, quoted in National Journal, November 4, 2010 said;
"The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president."
Those aren't words from someone willing to work with the President on anything.

Stupid much, Duh-Pont?

Carol is correct. Unlike Obamacare where Democrats went nuclear and shut Republicans out, Romneycare had support from people on both sides of the isle. Obamacare is a Democrat disaster people don't like and you are a delusional brown shirt liar & idiot!
