No man is entitles to another mans labor. Obamacare will fail when the middle class gets the bill to pay for the poor peoples insurance...

I'm all for working to devise a more effective system to ensure Americans. The ACA is not the system we need. Your post is correct.

We need to focus on the cost of care, not the insurance. Start by setting up appointments for people that come in to the ER with a cough, no more ER treatment for stupid little things. Same goes for ambulance rides, hell reimbursing cab fair would be cheaper.

When politicians in swing states see their constituents signing up for the ACA you will see them singing a new tune... you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows... pretty soon Republicans will be trying to claim that the ACA is their idea all along (actually it is) Democrats would never have dreamed up a state s rights market driven mishmash ... I mean really do you see Medicare being run differently in each state... of course not

stop already with it's a republican idea. Obama and the democrats own this debacle lock stock and barrel not a single republican had input on this final product or voted for it. It will fail when people can actually get info on how much it's really going to cost them. It's not sustainable. And going to a single payer system is not the way to go either.

yeah right  ... it was the Mittster with the Heritage foundation in MA that designed and put this together ... democrats want no part of a state by state series of insurance exchanges ...   I live in MA  i know who came up with this    HERITAGE ????

Bet none of those people flocking to sign up are in the top 1% the GOP is so worried about.

People want healthcare coverage. No one wants to lose everything they own if they have an accident or get a bad diagnosis - or worse, dies from a curable illness because they did not seek early medical intervention.
09:16 AM on 10/10/2013
People want healthcare coverage they can afford. This plan doesn't help the middle class at all.

Yes, of course Obamacare absolutely helps with the costs! An individual is getting a group rate and the insurance companies must spend 85% of all premiums on actual healthcare rather than CEO bonuses, advertising, etc.

"The Covered California exchange said it approved more than 16,000 applications for health insurance that would cover over 28,000 state residents, despite early glitches since the website launched."
===

Wow, 16,000 transactions in a week? LOL A $10-a-month Yahoo store can do that many transactions without a single hiccup.

And the pace had better pick up because 16,000 more people insured per week is only 800,000 people per year, and California needs to sign up several million people.

the US has a population of 313.9 Million, 50,000 or even 100,000 is not statistically significant.

The people who are rushing now are the ones that don't have insurance and can't afford it. So they are really getting it for free. Our new tax dollars will take care of that. :-)

You're exactly right! And also: the high cost of health care which covered the losses due to treatment of the uninsured. Some people out there just don't get it. :-)

Here's my prediction sports fans... Just wait, in 3 months republicans will be attempting to take credit for the PPACA by going back to ... wait one.....

It was a republican plan built by the Heritage foundation and they knew it would work since it was successful in Massachusetts under a republican governor Mitt Romney.

By election time next year, republicans will be FOR the PPACA and they won't be calling it Obamacare because they won't want to give credit to the President.

They will probably go back to calling it Romneycare, praise the Heritage Foundation for such a brilliant plan and claim that Obama is trying to take the credit for it. ;-)

This may be an eye opener for the typical citizen in the US. How remarkable the lack of representation there is for voters. Hijacked by the financial and corporate interest. Hope the affordable care act changes that norm in the future.

Ahh, the Teapublican wailing, gnashing of teeth, lying, misrepresentation, desperation (and really bad grammar) on this forum...

Let's see how many ways I can say this:

"The train has left the station"

"The horse has left the barn"

The genie is out of the bottle"

"That ship has sailed"

"That round is downrange"

"The ball is already rolling"

"The ball is in the air"

Trying to repeal the PPACA at this point is not just senseless it will be impossible without going to something even better like single-payer....

Glass-Steagall was repealed. Law are not part of the Constitution. Any congress can repeal any law. There's nothing particularly special about the ACA.

Very true.. yet Medicare and Social Security, programs that mean things to real everyday people are still here.

You ask the average person about Glass-Steagall they will say huh, what? But if you ask them about Social Security or Medicare they will say "keep your hands off my....".

The ACA is not going anywhere at this point until somebody can think of something better to replace it.

They tell you... you should never say never... I'M SAYING NEVER!
10:37 AM on 10/10/2013
Except single payer would also be a debacle. That's not the way to go either,, fix what we have that was working for 85% of American's and fix the system for the other 15%. Blowing up what worked for 85% makes no sense, but that's about what we can except from this president and his democrat congress people.

I long for single payor. ACA is a Republican plan that strenghthens insurance companies who take 33% of every healthcare dollar in the US
