ya'll are so crazy.
it's been 3 years since this thing passed, none of you have had the time to read it? really?
.
the ACA will be just like every other federal program; people will fight it until it's fully implemented, and 10 years from now everyone will be saying "we should have had this all along".
.
the only dislikable part of the ACA is that it's put upon employers to find affordable options, which is hard when you pay someone minimum wage.
even at 40 hours a week, minimum wage only allows for about $115 a month in premiums.
(we'll ignore the sad fact that a person working full time for minimum wage qualifies for medicaid)
.
.
too bad the single-payer option was taken out by the tea party republicans during the initial negotiations. if that part had been left in, employers would no longer be required to offer options.

Fox was smart enough to predict the Administrations' failure in Egypt almost from the beginning. They knew it would be another Obama failure. Looks like the smartest man, and the smartest woman on earth aren't as smart as they thought they were.
What Failure? The people of Egypt are in conflict with each other. The intelligent thing to do is to see how this plays out before taking any action.

<quoted text>Read the SCOTUS case of Flemming Vs Nestor which deals with the Individual Mandate with Social Security which everyone is forced to participate by law in the Social Security program and the Social Security tax is just like the Obamacare Individual Mandate that is considered a tax and the SCOTUS in 1960 ruled that since Social Security is based on a tax individuals have no rights to Social Security what so ever the Pseudo Liberals on the SCOTUS ruled that way in 1960 so the same can be said about Obamacare.

OK...So when your social security check comes give it back. Tell others that you think that social security is a bad thing and that they should give their checks back as well. Even the tea party will leave you standing in a field of crickets.

You don't remember Obama kissing up to the Muslim Brotherhood. He sent them money, and arms. He immediately endorsed Morsi when the people knew right away what he was, and Islamist, a Jihadist in wolf's clothing.

What are you basing your statement on? Morsi was elected by Egyptians. President Obama had nothing to do with it. He endorsed the democratic process. After Morsi installed a government that was more of a dictatorship, the Egyptian military tossed him out.

hopefully he's correct.
putting the onus of insurance coverage onto potential employers wasn't a good idea then, and isn't a good idea now.
eventually, a persons employer will be moot.
that day can't come soon enough for me.

they are not done tweaking Obamacare and if Obama wanted to he could by executive order create a single payer system since the law is there now.

Your President is a muslim sympathizer, and he couldn't wait to kiss up to Morsi, who almost immediately showed his interest in turning Egypt into another Al Qaeda stronghold. Stop pretending you don't know what he is.

Bondi said that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is making it easier for someone to be hired as a so-called navigator, cutting back on background checks and eliminating a fingerprinting requirement, which could make it easier for a personís private information to fall into the wrong hands.

Why the surprise? Republicans don't lock step like liberals than can't think for themselves and have to be force fed by mantras. Try to understand pookie, low information commiecrats like you are a dime a dozen and will end up in landfills soon enough.
