I thought that it was modeled after Romney Care which seems to be working better than other health care plans around the world. Since every Democracy on earth seems to have a national health care plan, why not us? Rather than bitching why not bring up ideas on how to improve what is coming out? The constant bitching just seems like inane drivel coming from the right wing lunatics that pervade the GOP who simply hate the president. Time for some logic and common sense to start being used to modify the ACA. It’s Stupid, Obamacare

Dear Comrade 55,

You’re just jealous because when they raised the speed limit you went from having the fastest number, to now beeeeing reeeeally slooooow. We curse at you from both the right and the left lanes, of course.

I got news for you, however: You were always slow. We’ve been cursing at you from both lanes for years.

RomneyCare by the way WORKS, if it does at all, because it shifts some of the burden of healthcare costs from the people of Massachusetts-- you know, the beneficiaries who use the system—to the rest of the taxpayers of the United States, who do not use the system.

“Under RomneyCare, the state shifted half the costs to the federal government and most of the other half to individual families and policy holders,” said David Tuerck, Executive Director of the Beacon Hill Institute, a conservative think tank that studied the issue. Tuerck is also the chair of the economics department at Suffolk University. “We can’t do that with ObamaCare. There’s no place for the costs to go.”

Oh, but you’re wrong Mr. Tuerck.
