Republican Obstructionism

There is less than a month until our nation's fiscal cliff is reached. While some would have us believe that reaching the fiscal cliff will be the end of the world, in reality, it will barely put a band-aid on our severed limb of debt and spending problems. The problems were not a result of a single presidency. The debt and current spending deficits are the result of decades of spending more money than is taken in by our federal government. It has been exacerbated by two recent wars and the worst economic recession in 70 years.

Doesn't matter, if the GOVT is the payer, its market distortion and absolute socialism. Free market solutions are the only thing that will work, but they will not be allowed

I have car insurance. I have to have that.

Any bills a incur are mine to pay unless it bankrupts me which medical bills are increasingly apt to doing to people.

Myth perhaps you better read a little more about our Socialist Health care plan. You might just like it

The thing about a single payer system is that I on paper it looks good. I dont know for a fact if it would be a good thing or if it would work.

Like I said I like the "idea" of it.

Sad thing is I can't wonder if something will work and still have doubts about it but would like to see a system such as that at least proposed as a solution.

Nope the moment I say that to you folks I might as well be saying I want it and my thoughts are set in concrete.

Am I right or am I wrong?

So you have a car accident tomorrow God (who you deny) forbid. What was your plan??? You let someone else pay for it>?

And what coverage will I have?

I dont get earned income tax credit. I haven't went to the doctor in years. Haven't needed to.

The money I get back from at the end of the year is far far less than what I paid in.

What's more, if you get an earned income tax credit allready, you get back more tax than you had withheld resulting in free money from the taxpayer. So the fine will mean you get less free money, gee what a burden.

So if you pay the fine, which is less than the coverage would cost, who is gonna pay for the coverage you will have anyway???? Wait for it..........that's correct the taxpayer IE the guy who has to pay more for you to have coverage you refuse to pay for. I don't suppose you will thank me.

Single payer, still socialised but you like that kind of wealth redistribution don't ha. How about a free market without the market distortions caused by politicians.

I cant use anything to offset the cost of healthcare to me.

I would like to see a single payer system. I dont like the idea of their being a middleman between the doctor and me.

More than likely I will be paying the first years fine.

Also right alongside this issue is being forced to buy something I dont want.

I dont agree with that.

They all screwed up. Simple as that. Obama won't budge or even appear to be open to other ideas. The Dems won't compromise in any way. The Republicans know they can't stop Obamacare and won't just give in.

They are all hurting the nation. Best thing to happen is that the Republicans make a big spiel about doing what must be done to help the nation and signing off on the budget. While of course making it clear they (like the majority of Americans) do not agree with Obamacare.

As far as the reason for the shutdown. The GOP knew full well they wouldn't get what they wanted. And yet they persisted.

Like I said before. The GOP if in power wouldn't give an inch to the left.

This shutdown belongs to the TPGOP.

They own it and I hope they pay for it.

Right now I know people who have rent to pay and car payments to make that work for the government.

The GOP doesn't give wto chits about those people.

Come next year. Oh boy do I hope a reckoning is coming for the right!

Probably a good thing comments are going away. Lots of bs talking points are going to have to be printed to try and sway the voters to the right.

Its better if those talking points become insulated from scrutiny.

It comes down to this. And it happens with every single issue this country faces.

You wont compromise with me! Why should I compromise with you?

Also I don't blame the democrats for not negotiating with the GOP one bit!

Flip the rolls around and you'd see the GOP be unwilling to give in any way shape or form.

In fact we already see that.

You guys want things your way and your way only!

Negotiate with you? How is that even possible?

ITS NOT!!!

Well lets see. I dont have insurance. I did have it but I dropped it because it was a ripoff. Because I have access to employer insurance I can't get any subsidies. So no YOU are paying for nothing for me.

I dont like Obamacare. There are better ways of making healthcare more available to people.

But I haven't seen anyone on the right make the argument for anything better.

All they do is bleat out no no no no no!

The forums are at least still up while comments have been stopped on all other article except the latest poll. Above one article was the invitation to write an online letter to the editor if you had an opinion on the item.

YEP there will be no more comments on news stories, don't be too surprised if it happens here too very shortly. I think its a good idea.

The FACT is, I am going to pay more for less, so YOU can have more for nothing. That's fair right?

But alas, that is what we have become as a nation. A bunch of TAKERS and ENTITLED jerks. Gimme gimme, jealous of others success, while blaming failure on someone else. Sad really
