Looks like you're making fun of people who do "visit the soup kitchen." Looks like you consider them beneath you. You know, like you disrespected gays the other day?
You'd think they'd figure out if they intentionally squeeze themselves between that rock and a hard place, they're going to get stuck.

They don't want regular people helping others. They want big government to do it for us...I mean them.

Giving a hand up is no longer the issue. Big government providing a permanent lifestyle on the backs of others is.
There were far better solutions to lowering the costs of health care and to make major changes so that health care was assessable to everyone - without total chaos, higher costs and more people without insurance than before.
I'm actually anticipating next year in the hopes that progressive liberalism and big government will finally be exposed for what it is. We can start over again and be a lot smarter about it the next time.
If that happens, even you might be surprised.
You people are always great at claiming "there were far better solutions" but you never present any alternatives. Never! Single payer was an option but Republicans shot it down. Other than "repeal Obamacare"; allowing the purchase of health insurance across state lines; reforming malpractice laws so doctors are protected and patients are left high and dry; and forcing people with pre-existing conditions to purchase expensive insurance through high risk pools what else you got? Absolutely nothing. Guess that is why you are known as the party of "no". You have NO solutions.

Merry Christmas, Frank.
Our country DOES deserve better than a fraud who needed to use deceit and repeated lies in order to guarantee the government take over of the health insurance industry.
I predict the food industry will be attacked next. They'll say "how dare evil corporations profit from a basic human need?" Just you wait and see.
Odd though, isn't it, that the left condones exorbitant tuition cost to students and ridiculous salaries and benefits to tenured professors - profiting from a basic right that everyone 'deserves' called an education.
After all the lies health care is still not working, wonder when he is going give up? Everyone but him knows it's over, would some of his kind please tell him, if you don't tell him he won't know it, you don't him to keep on making a fool of himself.

That's bullshit. One of the most viable solutions was to allow interstate competition for insurance companies that "you people" wanted nothing to do with. "You people" won't even listen to solutions that fly in the face of your Government Knows Best mantra.

Liberal/Progressive democrats hate our Constitution because they think we're too stupid to govern ourselves. Nevermind we did just fine until they came along and poisoned the minds of Americans into believing they need to be governed and told what to do by the elite few.
That's the whole thing in a nutshell.
Hope you had a very Merry Christmas, Ray.
Same to you, ma'am. Stick to your guns.

Agreed.

Common sense - a foreign notion to the political left that prefers to govern via jerking knees and emotions.

Do not bring up the word work when speaking of "poop". He is one of the elite he does not work, he depends on others to provide his food stamps, his health care, his rent subsidy. In his mind work is only for the ignorant.

Big government couldn't give a flip about you or your brother. They want power and control over you and your brother.
Won't you ever get that at some point? Seriously.

the ObamaKKKare f*uckups keep coming...

Obamacare was drafted so poorly that residents in America's territories like the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam may literally be unable to purchase health insurance on the private market next year, even if they are healthy and want to voluntarily do so.

Though Obamacare requires insurance companies in the territories to accept all applicants regardless of preexisting conditions, the law "does not mandate that all territorial residents buy plans nor does it provide subsidies to make coverage more affordable--as it does in the 50 states and the District of Columbia."

The Washington Post simply noted that "this is, to put it mildly, a really bad way to run an insurance market. The whole idea of the subsidies and the mandate was to encourage enrollment among the healthier, younger people necessary to support an insurance market that also works for the sick."

Since only sick people will enroll in the territories, premiums will skyrocket. Health analysts have said, "It's like building a house with a roof but no walls."

In the case of the Northern Mariana Islands, the individual insurance market is so messed up that insurance regulators believe it will be "literally impossible" for someone to buy a new insurance policy next year because the "one plan selling policies there told the territory's top insurance commissioner it would not sell new plans for 2014."

"In the 50 states and D.C., everybody is crying about the Affordable Care Act not working," Sixto Igisomar, the regulator, told the Post. "You multiple those things exponentially for us."

According to the Post, when Congress drafted the Affordable Care Act, it included "territories in some provisions but not others." The individual mandate and insurance subsides are not extensions of the Public Health Act, which covers the territories, and are a part of Obamacare, a new law that applies to "each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia." As a result, "territories are also barred from using the federal health exchange but did have the opportunity to build their own marketplaces."

A. Who cares about Obama's legacy?
B. Anyone that thinks they have coverage they don't have can't read.
C. You probably also voted for Bush so we can blame you for the recession we're still climbing out of.

Yu have no clue what "buying across state lines entailed.

You probably think it means anyone can buy a policy from any state.

This is how f*king stupid you people are.
