I have heard that ObamaCare is wonderful for America because
before ObamaCare, Americans lost coverage from evil Insurance
companies. That was true and is true with Medicare and 'insurance'.

However, people started losing their coverage from insurance companies in greater quantity
starting about May, 2010 - just after ObamaCare was passed into
law by way less than half the country. For those
of you in Rio Linda, recall that only 60% of registered American voters
actually voted - Obama got the support of only of 31% of registered
American voters. HOWEVER, only 70% of eligible Americans register
to vote. That means that 70% of the 31% is only 22%! Only 22% of Americans support
Obama and Reid and Pelosi. I think the Progressives sites 

  Truthout
  DailyKos
  Media Matters for America (MMFA)
  AlterNet
  Mother Jones
  Center for Effective Goverment
  Nation of Change
  Vote Latino
  Center for American Progress
  ThinkProgress
  MoveOn
  Americans United for Change

don't seem to understand math and all the facts. They
will not tell you the details of the math of eligible Amercan
voters. They publish only those facts that you will accept.
They will never tell you
any facts that do not support their pre-judged
conclusions. All of the sites above do not accept
any fact that does not comport with their prejudiced
conclusions. Been blocked from multiple sites
for giving verifiable facts disputing their 'views'.

Polls always show ObamaCare is not liked. People lost their coverage
before ObamaCare. ObamaCare produced a non-linear increase in loss of coverage.
Y'all can check the facts if you really care. I have and if you don't do
it on your own you are simply lazy liberal/progressive followers. HOWEVER,
if 'losing your coverage' is the issue you want to discuss (an issue I
agree with), ObamaCare is a thermonuclear weapon to attack a backyard
fire-ant hill. The collateral damage far outweighs the benefits.

And we haven't seen the worst of it. Once all the EO delays expire and employers start making major changes we will see it get worse. I know my BCBS costs about 10% more now than at end of 2013. How much increase my employer had I don't know.

Fox News mentions one verifiable event, Bill Nye mentions 3 or 4 unverifiable events. Who has an agenda? Dear Bill Nye; Has earth warmed over the past 16 years? Are you scientist? (I am - Ph.D. Physics). If readers just accept what they hear and do not require Fox News and Bill Nye's  explain to them their views, so each and every questioner understands, those who just BELIEVE will act as lemmings and follow. All of you can up your game by requiring all who make statements you like to explain them in great detail so you not only like them but can defend them in great detail on a public forum.

and moral weakness, one must for the same reason also reject
every kind of government action.

Are doctors greedy or are people buying solutions that would not exist in a government controlled health care system?

Thoughts anyone?
A tiny sliver of doctors and other medical providers accounted for an outsize portion of Medicare's 2012 costs, according to an analysis of federal data that lays out details of physicians' billings.

Not much activity here. I am a libertarian but very much willing to learn and listen to views on this subject. In the grand scheme of things, I believe there should be justice. I just don't understand limiting it to social justice.

RE: "Income Equality is not relevant":       I agree. However, ObamaCare failures are also huge issues. Many more people in America suffer from ObamaCare than the lazy indolent's who want more free stuff under the theory that 'they can't find work after 99 weeks'.

+Clell Harmon From such close minded folks what possible evidence would convince? I asserted above that ObamaCare is bad for America and only those who get newly discovered free stuff benefit. I will admit that anyone forced to participate in ObamaCare and gets no tax relief or does not go on Medicaid will be relieved to end the signup torture and may indeed have a smile on his or her face. Several weeks later that smile disappears as it did with me. Since most of you are of the mind that those who disagree with you are liars, there really isn't much to talk about. Here's one fact that even a moron can verify. There are fewer and fewer doctors accepting Medicaid patients. Here's another. The provider network of your chosen insurance plan might not include your colon cancer oncologist.    As for Medicare and Social Security, I will make a trade with you progressives. Give me all my FICA taxes back with interest and I will forgo all Medicare and Social Security Benefits. Today, you are paying 12.4% for Social Security and 2.9% for Medicare. You will do that for life or until you reach 65 (Medicare)/67(SocialSecurity) whichever comes first. If you die, you lose it all.

Jesse and Al supported immediately without facts, logic or feeling
Crystal Gail Magnum and Tawana Brawley. Both Al and Jesse are the ultimate race baiters. All must be measured by Al and Jesse's response to Tawana and Crystal.
Jesse and Al are the Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein of race baiting.

  [All should read the history of these two profiteers.]

Is Jesse rich? Is Al rich? I thought they were Reverend's. How does
a Reverend become rich? Do they just love humanity, like they did in their youth when both were credible and and people listened to them (I recall
Jesse be a power for education of kids, especially black kids. I liked him then)?  Follow or listen to Al or Jesse today and y'all just aren't understanding those to guy's history.

How does a reverend become rich? Well, considering that most of the clergymen in my area seem to have no problem affording nice clothes, large houses and luxury cars, I don't think it's an issue with just Jackson and Sharpton.
