It does nothing for patient care,, It is costing a dam fortune on the backs of the working folks in America,, Have you heard of some of the copays up to 12,0000$ in some folks,, Most are going to pay the fine/tax to get out,, well the law depends on younger folks signing up to foot the bill for the less fortunate, but the money is not going to be there,, this dam thing is bankrupt before it gets started,, Now folks like Elk are going to refute this with some long winded article, but, I am here to tell you that everyday I see testing being denied, medicines being denied and home care and ancillary services for the sick and elderly are being denied, and it is getting worse every day,, and the unaffordable healthcare act is just that,, you are getting nothing for something and no chicks for free,, the ones that have Medicaid already abuse the hell out of the program and this is where Bamcare is funneling everyone into,, I had a moron women this morning who call an ambulance to bring her to the ER for a gaddam toothache,, real emergency, and she would not go to a clinic cause she would have to pay 3 dollars and that is a pack of cigs,, so she hits up the tax payer for over a grand for her dam tooth,, these types of folks (Medicaid) abuse the system and that is getting worse as well,,
There are several ideas on the table to repeal and replace with Docs like Carson and others that are putting together bills that would truly solve the problems of healthcare in the US and we should see more of this after the first of the year,, we can only be hopeful cause what we have in place is a fkin disaster and does nothing for patient care, esp. the sick and the old,, Now instead of bashing the hell out of me because you don't like the truth, ash questions and I will answer giving you answers from someone who is in the trenches in the middle of this,,
It's a know fact now that Fox is watched by more folks than any of the other venues, and they get many pi()ssin contest with both parties on that channel,, its not all one sided but I will admit it is a more of a conservative station,, MSNBC is the most useless of them all,, IMO,,
Actually? The ACA may turn out to be the BEST LAW ever passed in the USA !! I just got my quote: I am saving over $800 per month . My payment will now be $700 per month and my healthcare insurance will be better than when it was before !! I am a FOX NEWS junkie and I can not wait to write FOX NEWS to tell them ! The SPIN STOPS HERE because I am LOOKING OUT FOR ALL AMERICANS !!
RICK SANTORUM: GOVERNMENT-PROVIDED HEALTH CARE IS A PLOT TO KILL PEOPLE WHO DON’T VOTE THE RIGHT WAY
BY IAN MILLHISER | ON DECEMBER 14, 2013 | Think Progress
Speaking at a Young Americans for Freedom event on Friday, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) offered AN UNUSUAL ASSESSMENT OF WHAT HAPPENS WHEN “THE GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO BE THE PRINCIPAL PROVIDER OF HEALTH CARE FOR THE COUNTRY.” “IT’S ACTUALLY A PRETTY CLEVER SYSTEM,” THE FORMER PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE EXPLAINED, “TAKE CARE OF THE PEOPLE WHO CAN VOTE AND PEOPLE WHO CAN’T VOTE, GET RID OF THEM AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE BY NOT GIVING THEM CARE SO THEY CAN’T VOTE AGAINST YOU.”
Santorum’s suggestion that elected officials will provide health care to their own voters while getting “rid of” the opposing party’s voters followed a more banal warning that conservatives must fight programs that expand health care because they tend to be popular: “When Thatcher ran for prime minister she said — remember this, this is the Iron Lady — she said, ‘The British national health care system is safe in my hands.’ She wasn’t going to take on health care, because she knew once you have people getting free health care from the government, you can’t take it away from them.”
Yet Santorum’s own example refutes his claim that national health care allows an elected leader to essentially entrench themself by selectively murdering their opposition’s voters. SANTORUM PRESENTS NO EVIDENCE THAT THATCHER — OR FOR THAT MATTER, ANY OTHER BRITISH PRIME MINISTER — USED HER COUNTRY’S NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE (NHS) TO EFFECTIVELY EUTHANIZE PEOPLE WHO COULD VOTE HER OUT OF OFFICE. MOREOVER, IF SUCH A CONSPIRACY ACTUALLY DOES EXIST, THE FOLKS AT THE NHS ARE DOING A RATHER INCOMPETENT JOB OF PREVENTING THE RULING PARTY FROM BEING TURNED OUT OF OFFICE. Thatcher’s own Tories were voted out of power in 1997. The Labour government that succeeded those Tories lost power in 2010. Polls show that, if another election were held today, incumbent Tory Prime Minister David Cameron would himself be cast out of office and Labour would regain a substantial majority in the British Parliament.
So if the NHS wants to protect Cameron from all these people planning to vote Labour, it better start making with the killing pretty soon.

Keep,, let's say I have Bamcare or Medicaid and have belly pain and need a CT of the abdomen,, now you please tell me when and how you can get that ordered for me before I die,, tell me that you have to fill out a 10 page request and the wait time is 6 weeks and have to spend a half day on the phone with some moron with no education in medicine,, you please tell what is so good about that,, a year ago it would have gone through the same day,, how is now so much better,, please tell me how Bam has made life better for me in this respect before I die,, please tell me, or anyone else for that matter,, tell me how I'm so much better off now that Bam is practicing medicine,, anyone?,,
C, if your critics would stay informed they would have no need to doubt you. It is amazing to me that the supporters of this monstrosity can't see the light when so much negative info is there to see. I sometimes wonder what it will take to bring them to their senses.
I agree dickw..... and idiots on this board with halitosis also suffer from phagocytosis such as blue,keep,floppy,robo-cop,njdanny69,and the anti American communist/atheist elk to name a few.
