    It is simply shameful that America, argueable the richest country in the world, does not provide health care for all its citizens.

    How is this rationalized by the GOP and so many among us?

    All other countries in the world that make up the western civilization have a national health care program. It is a sign of a civil society that cares about its citizens.

    Let's remember that Obamacare is not charity.....folks of means who do not have health insurance will need to pay for it. That is only right and fair.

    Boy, if it was 50 years ago and we were debating creating Medicare, this message board would be all aflame with GOP and Tea party sympathizers telling how Medicare was going to ruin our country. 50 years later our parents, grandparents and great-grand parents are all thankful they got access to health care via LBJ and the Great Society initiative.

    For the life of me, I cannot understand how some among us will protect the rich at all costs and fight against their own self interests. The rich should pay much, much more to support the poorer in our society.

    • Do you think Obama and the govt. can be trusted with very very important information and the key to every election. I think their recent behavior shows no.

    • In a fundamental sense the GOP is more a manifestation of organized crime than a political party and will only give americans grief.

    • No, it is about a poorly thought out program to take control of people's healthcare by the government. It has no economic foundation. It has not understanding of doctor patient relations. It cares nothing for the elderly, who the government panel of appointed reapers can deny people live saving procedures, if they don't think their deserving of them. This program was passed on lies and fraud, and is just another fraud on the people by the Democratic party. By the way, hope you don't mind adding a minimum of two trillion dollars to the national debt over the next ten years, just from the so called affordable healthcare. You should also add the massive tax increases at the state level for those states that have their own exchanges, as federal funding runs out in two years. Security on the government servers where your personal medical records will be kept is extremely poor. China will know more about your health records than will your doctor. Yup, that is what it is all about.
