I think BOB should offer to negotiate on ACA during the next round of budget negotiations. You know, for the LULZ.

I think this is a really good plan. It's fresh, it;s new, it's mavericky! I predict a massive uptick in their polling numbers!

In case anyone has forgotten, republicans haven't contributed anything positive to the U.S. since Nixon.  Bush II at least contributed some progress to AIDS relief in Africa, but that has little to do with the U.S.

@MikeGrunwald: The polling doesn't matter. The furor doesn't matter. Status quo bias matters. Obamacare is here to stay.

I'm down with ending the ACA. Medicare for all.

I think the ACA is doing a pretty good job of stopping itself.

Came here to say this.  As much as people may like the idea of (near) universal health care, the ACA will never provide it, but it can screw things up royally for everyone that actually has health care.

You do realize that the ACA did not cause anyone to lose their health insurance, right? You do realize it was the insurance companies that made changes to existing plans that they knew would make those plan ineligible under the ACA, right? You do know that the insurance companies made those changes just so they could dump those plans and blame it on the ACA, right?

And the public buys this excuse right? No they don't.

Who knew there would be side effects from cramming through a massive piece of legislation affecting almost a fourth of our economy without really debating it or thinking about it?  Crazy, right?

If you think that insurance companies just now started farking people over, then you really haven't been paying attention.

yeah, because before ACA the insurance companies and healthcare providers were doing such a bang up job! Nobody ever went bankrupt from medical bills. Rates never rose. Nobody ever went without care, without prescriptions because they couldn't afford them. It was a paradise!

Since I don't see any comments about the editorial, I'll post the last couple of paragraphs. The GOP gets TOLD.

What is the Republican alternative to this [PPACA] government program, flawed as it is right now? There is none. Party members simply want to repeal the health law and let insurers go back to canceling policies at the first sign of a shadow on an X-ray. They have no immigration policy of their own. They have no plan that will stimulate job growth. They are in favor only of shutdowns and sequesters and repeals, giving the public no reason to believe they have a governing vision or even a legislative agenda.

Over time, that will prove to be a far more serious failure than momentary incompetence.Democrats may be stumbling right now, but at least they are trying

Chilkoot Charlie: They have no plan


I think that's all your need to describe the Republican party at this point.  maybe if they weren't co-opted by the Tea Party, we'd be able to get somewhere.

Yeah. Two years of public debate during the Democratic primaries and the general campaign, followed by almost a year of legislative debate, can totally be called "cramming through".

"We don't want a repeat of what's going on now with Obamacare," said Eric Cantor, the House majority leader, explaining last week why party leaders would not allow the Senate's immigration bill to come to a vote, or even to be the subject of negotiations.

I would say that the GOP is being run by a bunch of retards, but that would be extremely insulting to retards.

...and replace it.  Don't forget the "replacement" part.

You act like Obamacare has fixed any of that.

It's completely true.  If they don't believe it, that's their fault.
