“Hooray, I wish he had acted sooner. Republicans broke the gentle persons agreement and have mistreated and disrespected the President for too long.”

“I wish Reid had acted sooner, too. I wish he had restored the filibuster to its historical stand-and-deliver method instead of this GOP fashioned baloney where they could phone in dozens and never exert themselves.”

“What I would want and what would be feasible might be two different things and I'm old enough to realize that. I certainly wouldn't expect a doctor, nurse, or paramedic to rush to my side not knowing if he or she will be killed in doing so. Hindsight is 20/20.”
“At the same time of calling 911 and waiting, they should have paged for a Doctor or Nurse at the Airport. I am sure someone with medical background could have help him.”

“Seriously? If a doctor or nurse were close, he or she probably would have attended to the TSA agent if they felt it was safe to do so. If none was close, you certainly can't expect them to head into a crime scene when they have no idea where the shooter is.”
“These Health Insurance Policies were "grandfathered", meaning they did not have to comply with the law and could stay in force; as long as they were not changed after the law took effect. The insurance companies decided to change them and/or cancel them.”
“To initiate a free market, national health insurance with mandatory coverage is not an easy and uncomplicated process. It is hard. Most people do not worry about insurance (if they have it) until their medical and/or hospital bills are under paid or not paid; then it's too late. I worked in the health insurance field and all insurance companies "cherry picked" their risks. All employer plans would be appraised and renewed every year. The employers with poor experience were "pushed out" with high rate increases. Individual policies were thoroughly underwritten because they were usually poor risks. Also, Health Savings policies were viewed as a less than desirable risk because these insureds would more likely postpone preventive treatment for financial gain.
Please anyone that is not familiar with the options available through ACA, please call or see a consultant You probably will learn a lot. Also, keep in mind that you can change your health insurance next year; if it does not meet your needs.
ACA can work for everyone.”

“This may be true and good for many, but Americans refuse to support others anymore than they already are. People refuse to pay cadillac like car insurance payments to the ACA. Most would take that little bit of extra money and actually buy a better car. And that's the majority, regardless of what party your in.”
“I guess you have affordable health insurance. BTW: Those plans you wanted to keep were "grandfathered". The problem is the insurance company changed them to get "out". Why don't you blame the real culprit?”
