The option of Congress doing nothing was to continue to allow American Families to face being shut out of purchasing Health Care insurance and facing financial ruin and bankruptcy from medical procedures.
Of course those of you on the losing end of the election after supporting faulty candidates who were found to be out of touch with American citizens find those solutions unacceptable.
Still Lords and serfs, none the less. If it was really about health care, a simple expansion of Medicaid would have been sufficient. Or, even combining Medicaid with Medicare into a single plan to reduce delivery costs.

Ol' Barefoot was blaming slavery on Christians. There were Christians on both sides of the issue. He could have said southerners, but had to bring Christianity into it.
Where the monarchy shares power of the government with the Church slavery was disallowed at the turn of the 19th Century, some much earlier. Spain disallowed slavery to be inline with the pope's teachings. the French also, Great Britain held tight until approx 1808. In North America, Frances territories along with Spain's were free lands, The Southern states in America were dependent on slavery for their economic survival. The Economy in the South depended on planters profits. The bulk of the capital in America was in the north in the industrial centers. Slavery offered the southerners what little economic vitality they had and of course money trumps Christianity and morals.

Lords aren't elected by the population they represent they are appointed by the King. Serfs have not rights, especially any rights to a voice in politics or government. This was a simple expansion of medicaid for those earning below a certain income, and for those doing better a tax in the form of a mandate to pay their own freight for health care. Medicare is a program that recipients have to qualify for based on their contributions over the course of their working life and it's not free there are premiums paid for medicare.

medicaid is a free services for he poor and indigent they're not the same or function alike in any manner.

The Emancipation Proclamation "freed" only the slaves in the South.
And since in 1863 the North did not control the South... it was not much more than a political gesture.

White House ignores 'lie of the year' award
THE OVAL
David Jackson, USA TODAY 2:59 p.m. EST December 13, 2013

The White House is not rushing to claim President Obama's latest award: Lie of the year.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said Friday the administration is focused on putting its health care plan in place; he declined to discuss the declaration by the fact-checking website PolitiFact of its annual "lie of the year:" President Obama's past claim that if "if you like your health care plan, you can keep it."

Obama has apologized to Americans who lost their policies because of new federal regulations.

Carney did note that PolitiFact has in the past defended Obama's statement about existing insurance policies, before declaring it "lie of the year" over developments in recent months.

"End-of-the-year categorizations like that are always fun even when they don't jibe with past characterizations of the very same statement," Carney said. "But we're focused on implementation of the Affordable Care Act."

He added: "We have owned and acknowledged where that rollout this fall has not been up to the standards that we expected and where there have been problems."

In its analysis of Obama's "catchy" statement -- "if you like your health care plan, you can keep it" -- PolitiFact reported that the promise was impossible to keep:

WHAT?? Way up from what, the lowest it's been in thirty years? Obama's economic policies absolutely sunk a struggling housing industry. Instead of 100 feet under water, it's now 99 feet under, and you call it "way up"? Obama has retarded our economy so damn far, a 2 1/2% economic growth sounds like a booming economy. It's not. This is an affirmative action economy.

Talking about progressives and hypocrasy, I am still waiting for tax cuts and tax rebates for the working class. Where are they? You promote yourself for the lower classes. You don't. You are pure special interest. And it involves people in the lower classes and the upper ones. Otherwise we would have seen what you spout come true for all of the proletariat. So a 15% tax cut and say a thousand dollar rebate for the working classes to start will be a great beginning to put your money where your mouth is. You can't. To much money has to go to special interests, the corruption that is with it, and massive irresponsible living.

What's the difference whether they're appointed or elected if they both have the power to impose their will on the public or intrude into one's personal life?

I know the difference between the two programs. Nothing says the programs have to be separate because to funds come from two different places financing a single delivery system. It's just a hypothetical suggestion. It might not be feasible. When states are left to their own devices with block grants, who knows what innovations can occur. Federal plans, even though administered by the states, always remain stagnant, archaic, lacking innovation, and expensive/ wasteful. The feds never think out of the box.

If you're enrolled, I would check directly with the insurance company you signed up for to see if you're covered. Much of that information isn't reaching the insurance company. Also, the cost of the plan you bought on the site is an estimate.
