Kinda like a non voter bitching, he has no right to.
The premiums I pay for my employees also increased a great deal, and my business is completely unaffected by the AHCA.

So unlike Right Wingers on TOPIX, I won't assume or whine that AHCA had anything to do with it.

My insurer increased premiums because they can. That's what businesses do, they charge the highest price they can. Welcome to Capitalism.

Nobody who objects to national singe-payer healthcare has a right to bitch about anything related to medical insurance.

If you want to keep private insurers around, and divert limited funds to create private profits, by charging the highest premiums possible, and paying the least benefits, that's what happens.

All other industrialized countries learned long ago how insipidly stupid that is.

Requiring people to purchase and maintain reasonable medical insurance is simply good policy, common sense, and all this whining is simply silly.

“Affordable health care means trying to get more people insurance that had no insurance. Making people who had insurance buy a different product that costs more for less coverage? You can’t go home and defend that.” That about sums it up. This is from a Democrat

If you took the govt out of 90% of our lives we would be the richest, happiest and healthiest people on earth. The 10 percent left would be national defense.

With your locale calling itself "Union" County, I'm sure I have many friends and supporters in such a place. There appears to be

Kommissar Paris seems to spend taxpayer money like I do. If he is interested, I may be able to find him a key position in my administration where he can continue his fine work on a national level.
In 2008 Americans wanted "change", and change is soon coming to Union County and the rest of America. Every American will soon have access to "affordable healthcare". Don't let the Republicans and racist tea partyers tell you otherwise. Change will also be coming to those that still cling to their guns and religion. They will be identified, located and dealt with to the fullest extent of laws yet to be written, enacted and enforced.
Looking forward to our visit in 2016.

That was an astute, reasonable and required response.
Ain't it amazing that Right Wingers in Red states slurp up so much more from the government teat than other Americans,
yet constantly whine about people like themselves.
Are they really that stupid... or just pretending ?
He's definitely that stupid, or maybe it's just a severe case of intractable bigotry

Great.

I vote we take the government out of Social Security. You didn't make enough money or save enough - die.

Take the government outbid Medicare. You can't afford health insurance when your 78 - die.

Take the government out if education. Your daddy can't afford to send you to grade school, high school, college, and graduate school - too bad - work for minimum wage - oh wait - there would be no minimum wage.

Take the government out of regulating banks. No problem. You can't afford 30% interest on a car loan - you don't need a car, or a house, or a loan for your kids dialysis -(see "die" above).

Take the government out of regulating good. Get botulism, or poisoned - die.

Take the government out of air safety. Planes crash - die.

Take the government out of zoning. Your neighbor puts a toxic waste dump or a nuclear waste dump next to your house - die.

Take the government out of regulating hospitals, doctors, and drugs. The dirty hospital gives you an infection, the doctor shows up for surgery drunk, or you get tainted medicine - die.

Nope - Nobody needs the government.

I see what the problem is here, you're lying. Insurance rates are fairly uniform for equal policies in each State for all major carriers. The ACA is giving consumers a discount of about 35% over comparable policies (even involving the same carrier), subsidies notwithstanding.

I currently have the equivalent of the ACA's platinum policy, for which I pay roughly $15,000/YR for a family of two. The equivalent policy through the ACA would cost me less than $9600/YR without any subsidy.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

if you fired the 80 percent of government that does nothing and gets paid for it then we as a country would be debt free in less than 2 years then all of the unemployed could go back to work in new factories that the government has closed down in the past 25 years then we have no more reason to let the mexis invade our country

Nope, you'd just have a lot more unemployed folks to go along with those who already don't have jobs. Manufacturers have already discovered that they can move their operations to slave labor countries like China and Mexico, so they aren't coming back anytime soon. Just glad you aren't running the government. Just plain dumb.

Sorr y but I can't hold a candle to your dumb crap. When this country was young it didn't have all the things that now cause us pain and we exported more than we imported and the country had a surplus and no deficit. Then we let a few idiots like you and Informed Opinion and Oh My have a seat in congress andlook at us now. Can't pay our bills, people out of work and can't even defend our embassies. When people got old their children took care of them. They saved their money and had enough to live on when they retired. They paid the doctor with whatever they had to pay him with and he took what ever they had to pay him with. Crooked politicians, Crooked Bankers and horse thieves were dealt with swiftly. Boy life was good then. What happened?

Well, see IO, Oh My and myself are all Democrats. It's the Republicans who have systematically increased the deficit, put us in debt, caused wars we didn't and couldn't pay for and gave tax cuts to the rich. That's what happened. Of course, Right Wing Wackos like yourself don't seem to have any memory of that. George Bush?? He didn't cause the Recession... right.

Nope.

Most companies left the U.S. to pay poverty wages, provide no benefits, access child and prison labor, and the ability to pollute the air, water, and the Earth which all increase profits.

Great post except I have always been, and remain a registered Republican, but I vote for the person, usually the lessor of two evils.

My party was hijacked first by the corporations and special interests directly, then hijacked by the corporations and special interest through the Teapubkicans.

I hold out for sanity to return.

Yep, our Marines, Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, FBI, DEA, ICE, ATF, NTSB, TSA, Secret Service, NIS, NSA, CIA, etc. sure are loser do-nothings that should all be fired.

Damn ... Are you sure you want to fire 80% of our military and law enforcement ?

In reality, I don't really consider myself either Democrat or Republican, voting as you say for the lesser of two evils. Heck, I didn't even vote for Obama either time. It's just fun to wind up the RWWs...

Now I see what your problem is, you've got the nostalgias.

Yep, the problem is all in your mind.

Here's a clue, if you don't pay your bills, your creditors have always been able to put a lien against your property.

"When people got old their children took care of them."
Except for those folks who never had kids, or the kids died first, or the kids moved away, or the kids feel that Dad's a real a$$hole.

"Boy life was good then."
Yep, you've got a bad case of the nostalgias.
