Considering 47 millions Americans currently rely on Medicaid and Medicare, how isn't health care not presently run by the government ? And if you're so against Government run enterprise, we are you not advocating for the privatization of police depts, fire depts, public utilities, libraries, etc. etc.?

Keep dreaming. The UN inspectors were prevented from talking to just about everyone in Iraq and only with a Saddam representative present if they did.
It wasn't until GW threatened to blow his butt to kingdom come that Saddam was willing to let the UN inspectors roam freely. But he already had plenty of time to send his WMDs to Syria by then.
If you think the Iranian president is willing to talk to this president for any other reason than to pull the wool over his eyes, you're much too gullible. Like this president.

Good one Carol. Obama is our enemy. He hates America and what is stands for. He is sick. I know you are referring to the cowards interaction with the Russians. They just laugh at him. Obama is a joke.

And far less! Here is a link to a subsidy calculator.
A single, non-smoking individual, aged 50, making $12,000 a year with no dependents would pay $240 A YEAR on a $5,290 policy. A smoker, on the other hand, would pay $2,935 a year under the same scenario because their policy would cost, on average,$8,085 a year.

So the taxpayers are stuck with 96% of the premium for the "non-smoker."

Do you honestly believe that anybody will admit to being a smoker in this scenario?

Then why are Republicans so anxious to defund it?
You and I both know that if Rethugs seriously thought the Affordable Care Act was going to be such a dismal failure they would leave it alone and let it's failure ease them into the White House during the 2016 elections. Rethugs are running scared of its success. That's a FACT.
Unlike Obama, Republicans do not want to destroy America.

California DMV is far superior to the Post Office, provided that you have the time to make an advance appointment.

Let's face it; the only people that will actually USE odumbocare are the broke-dck losers anyway. Everyone else already HAS health insurance....

Most fire departments outside big cities are volunteer.

Most utilities (electric, gas, water, telephone) are private corporations.

Police are government and largely ineffective, particularly in cities like Chicago.

CBO says at least 30 million will still remain uninsured.
And who are those 30 million?

1- Those who cannot find affordable coverage (defined as insurance that costs less than 9.5 percent of an individual's income) for whom the health care law allows for an exemption from the individual mandate.

2- Foreign born non-citizens

3- Citizens who would rather pay the penalty than insure themselves.(No accounting for stupidity).

FACT: The number of people without insurance would be MUCH higher without the Affordable Care Act.

So when are you having your perfectly safe gas well installed? And I guess everyone in the film lied, the sink faucets blowing flames were all faked and the pristine government land leased to Dick Cheney's buddies don't now look like the surface of the moon? Yes, it's all lies. Tell us, how much Halliburton stock do you own?
