Yeah, because we were doing so much better when the insurance companies jacked up premiums every year, and ran the real death panels that said sick people need not apply! Those same good old days when employers weren't slashing pay and benefits to pad their own profits.
When was that?
The Republicans have wasted years and years avoiding the problem with the health care industry, and simply returning to the days of ignoring the problem is not the answer.
Do you still go to the emergency room when you have a runny nose?
Your opinions about the health care system would mean more if you actually contributed to it.
Another day off?
Must be nice!

Who's suggesting we ignore a problem? Republicans have offered alternatives the entire time, including traveling policies, vouchers and removing the pre-existing condition clause. Traveling policies alone would improve competition in the health insurance market, which would then reduce cost, increase quality and improve technology. Vouchers would address the people who can't afford insurance. Getting rid of the pre-existing clause would necessarily add some increase to the deal, but there could be alternative avenues of paying for that.
These are real solution that you universal health care Obama fanatics refused to acknowledge, and continue to deny. All you want is some kind of sick revenge against insurance companies and the same old anti-business rhetoric BS we always hear from liberals.
As a result of your angry, revenge-seeking mentality what we got thanks to you and Nancy Pelosi's surprise-at-the-end stupidity is a law that does nothing that it promised to. The headline and accompanying link are evidence of that. Of course, you've probably ignored that too.
Then it should be easy to provide links to all of these so called bills. Not the 40 attempts to repeal ACA, but real legislation put forth that did anything other than reducing liabilities for medical malpractice.

Or you were talking about the identical health care law that was signed into law by then Republican Governor Mitt Romney?

The evidence you're looking for might be found in the union's latest tantrum over their finally realizing the reality of Obamacare and how it will "dismantle the 40 hour work week - the backbone of America's middle class".

Don't take my word for it - look at the union's words.

Typical BS.......

Hard to believe that you would take the chance to provide a direct quote of the unions celebrating the GOP's many attempts to provide their members with quality health insurance......

But then again, it's no surprise you couldn't do that!

It's not hard to believe you've once again failed to comprehend reality and replaced it with your own stupid spin.

If this monstrosity is not repealed it will destroy everything its not a healthcare law its a way of getting more tax revenue to fund other things, fools look at already the secretary is making new rules all the time changing things, by the time this thing gets rolling the cost will be ten or twenty times what it was supposed to cost to support the beaurocracy that is being created to administer the damn thing. Good luck I will do my best to break this law and not participate which as a free person I have the right to do, right?? Or is my freedom an illusion?

I guess no one cares about this anymore, maybe you have given up defeated and accept this piece of trash known as the Affordable Care Act, Law. So I make a prediction if you are someone who participates in risky behavior still to be determined by the secretary of HHS you will be paying more your premium will be determined by your behavior and of course that is the plan. So I predict if you participate in risky behavior lets say you ride a motorcycle, snowmobile, downhill ski, hunt, own guns, drive a sports car of course to be determined by the secretary, of course we must add water skiing, ice fishing, ride atvs, own a four wheel drive, who knows it could even be as bad as mowing your lawn, or shoveling snow. There are those among us who think we are all idiots who don't even know how to take care of ourselves it will even come down to what you eat drink when you go to bed, its coming to oppression you thought the republicans were about, the dems will be not only in your bedroom but in your kitchen garage and your grocery store monitoring your behavior, hope your all happy.. Thanks for destroying our way of life and the fundamental transformation.

Hillary as President? Apparently you have as much disdain for the American people as the current President. Methinks there are too many people who dislike Hillary immensely to ever elect her as President. And Biden is already a laughing stock.

...CREDIT CARD LATE PAYS AT LOWEST SINCE '94....UPI(8-14-13)...American 's remain stingy about carrying credit card balances and are making more of an effort to make timely payments, trends that have whittled the rate of late payments on credit cards down to the lowest level in nearly 20 years.....The rate of credit card payments at least 90 days overdue fell in the second quarter to 0.57 percent. That's the lowest level since 1994, credit reporting agency TransUnion said Tuesday.....The April-June card delinquency rate declined from 0.63 percent in the same period last year......

While credit card delinquencies are dropping, some Americans are falling behind on other loan payments.

Delinquencies on mobile home and boat loans increased slightly at the end of 2012, according to the ABA report.

And a separate report released by the New York Federal Reserve Board in February stated that the percentage of student loans that are delinquent by more than 90 days climbed to 11.7% in the fourth quarter of 2012, up from 8.69% at the end of the first quarter of the year.
