Please, what does it take to get anyone to understand, the political world is not just Democrats and Republicans. You want different, maybe even better? Then vote all o' 'dem b@stards out.

Because you will not find the answers you seek in the GOP establishment or the Democratic Peoples Progressive Party.

We do not need a better healthcare bill. That sir, is a completely false premise based on the indoctrinated belief that "something" must be done. far too much has already been doneand the best healthcare in the world is now a distant memory. It's destruction began under the GOP.

Or have ya'll forgotten Senator Jim Talent's (R-MO) Medicare fix?

hmmm...I was talking about the fact obstruction prevented debate.
Look we have what we have and sometimes it works very well for our needs as a country of free people.
I am the first one to agree republicans are democrats are republicans--as far as pompous azzes who are bribed and overpaid.
just in some instances they still manage to do the job. just not lately.
the only reason I was and still am in favor of a health care bill is because with all the draining of our incomes for private jets and padded expense accounts, we could sure use one thing to help working people and poor people. Not to mention even if you're above middle class and have a pre-existing condition.

Preexisting conditins was an easy cheap fixless than $5 billion a year. And Obamacare did not actually solve it. Proponents of the ACA were far more concerned about keeping our kids on programs until they were seasoned adults (26) and free pre and post natal contraception.

You still sit stubbornly on the concept that we need some kind of healthcare bill. Some kind of government program that providesa free positive right that ain't exactly free.

We have a definite diametric opposition.

It is all bad sausage, made worse if the two parties share in the crime.

BTW, only a socialist looks at private jets and feels that money ought to go tothose in need. Our CIC says that same line as he boards AF1 for another vacaton.

Private jets put a lot of people to work and are the rewards, if not the useful tools, for doing just that.....putting a lot of people to work.

We did? That would be quite a surprise to the majority of Americans who've never supported Obamacare.
