Ok it took me a while but I actually found your questions that you keep demanding I answer.
If it is so wonderful and 90% of the criticism is untrue then how come..... 1.) I am experiencing it first had with my healthcare plan that we have been told straight forward that it is preparation for obamacare. (My plan used to be very good, not cheap but good.) Now it just sucks. And 2.) My Physician who, for now I can still go and see, is retiring in two years to go and take up teachin
Do you actually expect me to comment on why your coverage has changed over the years?
The only person who is actually qualified to answer this question is the CFO of your insurance company.
Hate to burst your bubble but insurance companies jobs are profits. To make money they deny you care.
2) Why is my doctor retiring.
Many older physicians are finding it more difficult to practice in modern times. Medicare is making some demands from docs(one example is an electronic medical record). These are very expensive to implement, but in the long run will result in quality control improvements.(FYI this push started long before the ACA)
Remember the ACA's cuts are going to chop off payouts to docs by medicare. The offset is planned by there being less uninsured people to offset costs to hospitals. Unfortunately this does nothing for small clinics. This is part of the cost containment that allows the ACA save money 10 years from now.
Generally speaking on average doctors are working longer hours and making less money than ever before.
The one amusing thing that people fail to understand is that healthcare in the US is broken. Simply eliminating the ACA is not going to make the golden days return. That is pure fantasy.
The US population is getting older, and more expensive to care for. Medical therapies are becoming more high tech and expensive to implement and politicians are looking to REDUCE the allocation of funds.
The ACA was an attempt to fix this cycle by bringing more people into the system and forcing doctors to accept less pay.
The Republicans have claimed that the magic of the market will change all our problems, that and will try and force the consumer to pay more for insurance.
I am one hundred percent with Spesh.
The republicans are offering no specifics about how they are going to solve these problems just empty slogans.. Why because they dont have any.
What a persuasive argument youve put forward. Name call and finger pointing. You certainly wont hear me calling you a liar over the shocking revelation that you follow Fox News.
You asked what i would call it and i described it: taxes. Then you go on some high and mighty rant about how your taxes are to high and oh yeah food stamps. Im surprised that you forgot to include Solyndra. The ACA is considered constitutional in part because it is considered a tax. It doesnt matter if you like it, it doesnt matter if you hate it, it doesnt matter if you want to live in the woods and never pay for anything ever. I know looking past your own bias is extremely difficult, but the fact remains it is considered a tax. Period.
Please show me the quote where i talked about how great Obama is. The quote command is [QUOTE ] and [/QUOTE ] and the space between the "E" and the "]" that i had to put in so it wouldnt quote nothing. Just highlight the part of this thread where i talked about how great Obama is. But while we are on the topic, still havent seen someone talk about how good Romney is, still all about electing anyone not named Obama. Why dont you vote third party? I believe Florida will allow Gary Johnson to be a choice, Romney hasnt successfully attacked democracy in Florida. I mean, hes tried, but im fairly certain it wasnt successful. Anyone can correct me if im wrong on that.
Do we explore space, yes or no? And it doesnt matter if NASA has been reduced so badly they cant even fund a soda machine, all that matters is if they receive tax payer money. Do they receive tax payer money, yes or no?
And whoa, hold the phone a minute! Money was taken from the many and given to you? What sort of socialism is going on here!?!?!?!

Not every human is a manipulative, opportunistic, letch... or at least that's what I'm told.
"If you dont agree with me im taking my ball and going home! Your all sheep! SHEEEEEEEEP!" Sounds about right for modern conservatism.
So let me get this right: taxes for military is capitalism and totally great and you happily paid taxes. Taxes for healthcare: EVIL SOCIALISM!!!!!
Not to worry, the Ruskies arent invading. We'll be sure to find whatever stone your hiding under and warn you before they start dropping in from space. I suppose we'll also warn Romney at the same time. I mean, he should be hiding in the stone next to yours after his presidential campaign gets done bombing.
edit: and yes, i do not deny that taxes pay for government resources. Kinda been one of my points.
edit 2: Did you delete your post after i had responded to it? Now thats funny.
Go ahead and make this a Paul "bot" attack Cedar.
