A national health plan without a public option people can buy into is worthless

Yes. I can't support the ACA without that key provision, and even then it's a sad compromise of bad compromises.

On the positive side, the whole deal is a cash windfall for Big Insurance!

With a half dozen highly successful plan examples in place in Northern Europe, some even considered Constitutional like Germany's, how hard would it have been to simply pick one and copy it in the USA?

Thank goodness Obama isn't responsible.




The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

The combination of a nutless President with zero "ooomph" power to make hard decisions and stick to them (evidenced by his caving in on removing The Patriot Act, instead increasing the powers granted, guy has a dismal human rights record, he's squishier then Reagan on guns etc etc) and a completely insane Republican Obstructionist Congress and we have gridlock, few laws passed, and the ones that are are totally fucked up, watered down and butchered to shit with riders etc as evidenced by ObamaCare

The whole lot of them can go fuck themselves

I can't help but think that your remark is sarcastic!

If not, I apologize, otherwise, it was really narrow minded of you!

I ask you: Is there a superior option to prevention, and isn't that the ultimate in terms of prevention?
