Your right there HD,, i am no WONK at the DIZZILY confusing ACA. Just like Couch,, i couldnt get past the title of that above post.

But it seems that label can also be applied to the politicians that voted this in as : "we have to pass it to see whats in it".....


I spent 40 minutes on the phone yesterday talking to a rep from the GOVT site ... "Yorlanda" could not explain or answer any of the questions i asked her. She DID refer me to other sites which i had previously seen..It was a circular travel she pointed me in..

That's the publication of a final rule in the federal register. It includes comments and responses. The regulation will be published in the CFR without all the extraneous language. Standard stuff that's been going on for decades, but why not post it on supertopo like it's something extraordinary?

That explains it. It's all Yorlanda's (wink wink..brown person) fault.

I think we can all agree the support system is overwhelmed and in need of improvement. It would have been nice if Republicans had spent the last 4 years helping us prepare for this and improving on the law instead of banning support staff from helping people like you (based on what state you live in) or trying to repeal the law instead of improve it.

Repubs spent the last 4 years trying to make sure the law wouldn't work and are now crowing gleefully "see I told you it wouldn't work."

It would have been nicer if the Democrats included the Republicans in devising the law in the first place, or left themselves open to consider changes in the law. "We need to pass the law to see what it contains" is no way to devise legislation affecting 16% of the economy.

I still believe its authors intended the law to fail in such a way that single payer health care would be the only available option. Time will tell.

Well, let's see. Big parts of it were based on a law passed by a GOP governor in MA(later GOP presidential candidate). And going further back then that, it incorporates many ideas from a Heritage Foundation proposal. So not exactly a screaming liberal idea. That would have been single payer, or Medicare-for-all. This did include some compromises.

And I think many Democrats would be open to changes. But there would need to be compromises as well. Not just requests for repealing all or part of the act. If the House came forward and said we'd like stronger malpractice protection, but we're willing to accept higher taxes on drug manufacturers, don't you think that would generate some discussion? Instead we get demands for repeal, extortion of the public by refusing to fund the rest of the govt, and no good proposals for alternatives.

How can anyone be soo stupid to vote for a single one of these evil pawns, they are not doing any work for their constituents, thatís for sure.

They are doing plenty of work for about 1% of their constituents.

when going to the GOVT site for the ACA, when clicking on the "i accept" button, ONLY under the codes section will you find a clause that says " YOu may NOT expect a right to privacy of any of the info provided and it will be used by any means in any legal manner by the govt. It does NOT appear on the actual page. ??????



ohw and 10 out of 10 friends ive asked have had their premiums go UP...

"ohw and 10 out of 10 friends ive asked have had their premiums go UP..."...

Probably because they had ZERO insurance before = ZERO PREMIUMS...

Now that they can AFFORD insurance, they of course HAVE premiums...

Yahh and they will also pay for things like CONTRACEPTION so youngsters can go willy nilly and have their jollys for free. And if you thought the welfare bastard children problem was bad before,, just wait.

Having been both a contraception user and father I can conclusively say that contraception is far cheaper.

Because they were paying for the lowest possible amount of health insurance before and now have comprehensive coverage.

It's ok guys Ron is just mad that other people are having sex. The fact that his sentence insanely contradicts itself is just frosting.
