Taken a ride down an Interstate Hwy lately? Flown on an airplane with take off and landing going as it should. Mailed a letter by the U.S. Mail to a person living on a hiking trail in Alaska,and they got it. Gone to a National Park and marveled at what you saw. Gone to the Smithsonian and done the same. Wondered how the state you live in meets its spending requirement, then find out a lot of it comes from the Federal government! Marveled at the pictures as a U.S. satellite passes by Mars. Got and cashed your Social Security check every month? Left the hospital owing almost nothing but your monthly Medicare payment? Watched our military taking care of business while we all sit around and bitch about just about everything?
Ever wonder why the U.S. with the highest cost of medical treatment in the world doesn't even make the best of the top 20 developed countries in the world? Ever pay your $1000.00 health insurance premium and stand in line at the emergency room as people with NO insurance are treated before you and wonder how can this be, they NEVER have to pay? Ever wonder why the local restaurant the first couple of weeks seems to be lost, serving mediocre food with bad service. Like ObamaCare its going to take a while to work out the kinks in a truly huge undertaking. That's what this country does well, huge undertakings. If they don't you will not have a problem getting the votes to kill it in Congress. A lot of people seem to have forgotten that's the place things like that are done. But the saddest thing is they have forgotten what this country can accomplish when we All work together.
nother good post- I admit not knowing how well Obamacare will work in the long run or understanding all of the underlying nuts and bolts of exactly how it is suppose to work. Personally, I thought the whole rotten healthcare system should have been nationalized. But, for the life of me, strictly from a political perspective, I can not understand conservative/republicans obsession with getting it repealed before it is even tried. I mean, if it is a disaster, doomed for failure, etc.- wouldn't this be a political windfall for republicans in upcoming elections? They would then be able to just scrap it and go back to the old rotten system we had. I suspect that there argument that it have cost too much money by then. Right, the few trillion that broke the camels' back

And the first paragraph is completely irrelevant and a strawman the Left loves to trot out. No one on the Right argues that the government has certain functions it alone can do best (and we have no problem paying taxes for those functions)- interstate highways to facilitate interstate commerce, a military for national defense, national postal service (though it has issues), providing for the TRULY needy among the obvious.
Your statement about the top 20 countries in terms of medical care is a red herring - one of their top criteria is nationalized healthcare so of course the US doesn't make it and rarely have I been in a new restaurant that didn't know it was critical to be on top of their game from the get go - and therefore was. The point is that Obamacare is both a highly predictable debacle and one that never need have happened. There were many far less drastic options that could have been implemented to solve the problem of the uninsured without attempting to implement a system whose whole purpose is to achieve the goal Obama stated in 2003 when addressing the AFL-CIO - that of a single payer health system. Those options have been discussed here many times.

And Obamacare is just a prelude to a single payer system, possibly created on purpose to wear down the opposition to where
everyone "cries" Uncle, Obama....


I mean, if you are gonna have the intent to have medical coverage for all, then make sure all pay through a payroll tax, as in medicare, medicaid, s.s., and every other penny the gubmint can squeeze outta you....

Gubmint is gonna get your money, and you'll never get a fair share return from it...how else are those crooks in D.C. gonna pay for their Ferrari and diamond necklaces they give to their mistresses.


And gold watches to the men, from the women crooks...

TeaPublicans, especially "Crazy Cuz"
have admitted that ObamaCare will work, and that they have to kill it before Americans learn the value of reasonable access to general medical care for themselves and their children.

That's the irony - Teapubublicans admit they are trying to stop a democratically enacted law of the land precisely because it's what Americans will love.

How ironic that PBS just did a story of how the Chinese people are demanding their "Communist" government regulate industrial and vehicle created air quality, to attain safe breathing air in that country;
while Teapublicans in America are demanding our government stop regulating air quality so that we have polluted air here as bad as the Chinese have there.

If you were to look up "clueless" in the dictionary you should see a picture of the mindless "Capitalism" worshipping at the feet of Fox Noise,'Ol Rushbo, Hannity, and the Teapublican buffoons, completely unaware they are actually supporting a welfare state - for corporations.

HANNITY: They're really telling you to tell us to check back in on the website in off-hours. Does that mean that I should go on at like three in the morning?

OPERATOR: It was saying early in the morning and late at night, but some people say they do that and still can't get in.

HANNITY: So people are reporting to you the real deal?

OPERATOR: Yes sir, they are.

HANNITY: Have you ever got anybody that really likes it yet?

OPERATOR: Umm, no, not really.

good point, I think that the teapublicans should start their own party and run some candidates in upcoming elections. They would be sure to gain a lot of support from people who usually vote democratic- hee, hee, hee'
