 Sorry, this was dumb.

Does reform need to happen, yes. Is ACA the answer? I'm thinking not.

All the "zip it"s made me laugh out loud!  I think it's funny.  Everyone gets that the ACA isn't the end all be all ... but welcome to the world of compromise.  It could have been better, or more, but the repubs fought against that.  It may have been worse, it may have been better, but we'll never know.

The ACA is law.  We should keep moving forward and find ways to improve it ... instead of sitting around whining all the time.  It seems that people who had insurance before and have to pay more now are whining.  Welcome to capitalism, my dear friends.  If your insurance providers desires, they can raise their prices or dump your ass at any given point.  :)  Isn't that how you want it?

 The idea of healthcare for everyone is a great one but a hard goal to reach. There is a gap between the poor who qualify for free medicaid and the working that can "afford" it and are "offered" it through their employer. ACA seems like it's not going to work no matter how much I hoped for something good but I don't see anyone else coming up with a more feasible idea. Until then I guess we all have to "deal" until something else comes along.

HMMMM- how come the "greatest nation on Earth" can not do what ever.other.industrialized.national.on.the.planet has accomplished?  NO, those in charge want only certain folks to be able to access decent, affordable HC- they would prefer HC to be a commodity that only the select few can afford to access-

Hey as long as the insurers get to make money. They talk a lot about profit margins. How mean that they only make a 5% profit! How are they ever going to stay in business? !
I think it's pretty shitty that anyone makes 5% off of people being forced to buy their product. And how much do they have that isn't counted as progit? Screw that shit they suck.
