Libyan Extremists are going to run the Death Panels, and they could come up to you at any time.  Keep an eye out for Obama dithering. If he's  seen dithering, gird your loins.

dehehn: This is for the best.  Your ability to seek medical attention shouldn't be tied to your employment.  Of course if you lose your job in this system you lose you ability to pay for insurance so it's the same result.  Single payer is really the only reasonable solution to ensure everyone is insured and no one has to lapse their coverage due to unemployment.


Republican Jesus told me that people only ever become unemployed because they're lazy and don't work hard and don't believe in America hard enough.  So why the hell would we pay for insurance for lazy, unamerican swine!

/If you're not rich you don't work hard.  True story.

karmaceutical: DeathBySmiley: To be clear, Republicans didn't oppose universal coverage.

They opposed creating a level, competitive marketplace where health insurance companies have to compete with one another in order to acquire new customers.

You know, Communism.

So communism is a system in which for-profit companies must compete for customers?  As opposed to the cartel system we have now?


What YOU have is a broken Sarcasm-O-Meter.

Less than a year before Americans will be required to have insurance under President Obama's healthcare law, many of its backers are growing increasingly anxious that premiums could jump, driven up by the legislation itself. Higher premiums could undermine a core promise of the Affordable Care Act: to make basic health protections available to all Americans for the first time. Major rate increases also threaten to cause a backlash just as the law is supposed to deliver many key benefits Obama promised when he signed it in 2010.

What? The Affordable Care Act will cause rates to rise? Who saw that coming, huh?


Yeah rates never went up before, what gives?


Thanks Obama.

oh my answer is in TFA

The immediate political upshot for leaders of the Republican states that stonewalled the exchanges is that they'll avoid the wrath of their conservative flanks. And in the long-run, this decision allows them to more easily blame the federal government if things go wrong.

Sort of further exposes the fact that the GOP has no ideas when it comes to the issue. Here is their big chance to show those big gubbermint spend-o-crats how it's done, and they've got nothing.
