Do you understand that more people will have a much more difficult time getting prompt health care or that the CBO estimates 30 million will still be uninsured under this big government takeover?

Big government is guilty of "idolatry of money" more than anyone. Except they're idolatry lies with "other people's money."

How long will it take before Obama acknowledges he lied repeatedly to get the socialist ACA passed into law?

Earth to hyperbolic libtard: Republicans only account for about 1/3 of the electorate yet 54% of people polled want Obamacare repealed.

Why didn't the Democrats work with Republicans to simply " help the excluded in society" instead of throwing the baby out with the bat water?

85% were happy with their plans, yet now millions are losing coverage.

You are an idiot and your Democrats just want socialism/control.

Sorry to break it to you idiot. You just continue on with your hyperbole, zombie.

How much you want to bet USAsince1680 is a cheap tipper and never donates a penny of her own money? I've seen it over and over with liberals. They are always for things they don't personally have to pay for, too ignorant to understand the impact and are the cheapest, stingiest SOB's on earth with their own money.

You seem to forget it was greedy Republicans who increased their leverage by borrowing against their homes to invest in the stock market. Talk about untamed greed!!! The day of reckoning is coming and Republicans will, once again, be the biggest whiners after losing their shirts. The difference this time around is there are no bailouts are in your future.

Yes, the day of reckoning has yet to be seen. The Democrats insisted everything was just fine with Fannie and Freddie. Far more Democrats stuffed money from F*F into their pockets than Republicans while saying this to the American public.

Seems greed is bipartisan. Timothy Geithner, Charlie Rangel, Barney Frank, John Kerry and Barack Obama just to name a few apparently got their hands dirty by greed as well.

Then there was the Democratic Congressman whose freezer was packed full with ill-confiscated money. Sounds like greed to me.

"Alaska Democrats See a Palin Legacy They Can Like
Nicole Bengiveno/The New York Times

By KIRK JOHNSON
Published: November 27, 2013

ANCHORAGE — For many Alaskans, Sarah Palin is a figure in the rearview mirror, the memories of her time as governor obscured and distorted by the national spotlight she stepped into as Republican vice-presidential candidate, pundit and Tea Party darling. And often as not the memories come with a grumble anyway, since her shooting-star career mostly took off after leaving the state.

Jack Roderick, a former mayor of Anchorage, said:“She did the right thing. She put in a tax that was tough on the big guys.”

But now the Palin legacy is being burnished, if not a little airbrushed, by a seemingly unlikely source: Democrats. The reason is oil.

Ms. Palin was elected governor in 2006 on a pledge to clean house after revelations of oil-industry corruption in the State Legislature, and in 2007 oversaw a sweeping overhaul of policy that included big new taxes on oil profits. But this year Gov. Sean Parnell — Ms. Palin’s lieutenant governor, and successor after her resignation in 2009 — led a drive in the Republican-controlled Legislature to repeal the Palin tax package, arguing that it discouraged new exploration. That is a big issue in Alaska, where oil taxes pay for 90 percent of the state’s general fund budget.

But that was not the end of it. Opponents of the new law gathered enough signatures this spring and summer to put the issue on the statewide ballot next year. They want voters to repeal Mr. Parnell’s new tax plan and replace it with Ms. Palin’s old one...."

Obamacare does NOT PROVIDE health care.
Obamacare CONTROLS health care.
Until you can digest this fundamental purpose of big government, you will never understand its consequences.
They go hand-in-hand. By CONTROLLING health insurance providers, the ACA insures that proper health care will be PROVIDED. History has shown that we can't have one without the other.

FACT: Anyway you look at it, MILLIONS with pre-existing conditions will now be able to AFFORD health care as a result of the ACA. I call that "providing health care".

Just looking at Biden's and Obama's tax returns the first time around, the charity part seemed to be pretty skimpy.

The Pilgrims figured out communal living didn't work for the same reasons it doesn't work today.

People back then didn't mind watching other people work either as long as they got the same stuff. The Pilgrims ditched communal living rather quickly and were actually the first capitalists - dividing up the land and saying 'do it yourself or don't eat.'

Oh, and let's not forget about the death panel, oops, I mean the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB.)

"Death Panel"?

Nah, of course not..."even though its function is to decide which lifesaving treatments will be paid for and which ones, because of cost, a chronic condition, and/or advanced age, will be denied."
Yeah

Reagan deregulation seems the origin?

If you took microeconomics you would not buy a trailer home?
