    So our ol' prune face Mitch says that 30 million uninsured American Citizens are not the issue.

    And ol' Boner is going to rip the ACA up by the roots.

    All because President Obama passed a Health Care Act that is based on the one put in place in Massachesets by the present GOP Candidate for President.

    And ol' Prune Face is ready to have a stroke at the thought that Americans as a whole might enjoy the same health care benefits that he has enjoyed for these many years. What is the use of being an elite if ordinery mortals get to enjoy some of the same things that you do?

    Mitt should be(and was) proud of what he accomplished for Massachusetts in regards to health care.

    To be sure, the 30mil uninsured we have in this country is absolutely the issue. President Obama and Mitt Romney both ought to be hounded, howled and harrassed from the public square for their "solution(s)" to this social ill. The individual mandate--the linchpin and really the only newsworthy feature of both ObamaCare and Romney's MassCare--does nothing but compel virtually all citizens to pay an annual tithe to a private insurance company. Massachusetts has among--if not the--highest rates in the nation and ObamaCare, likewise, has no cost containment mechanisms. Consequently the situation found in Massachusetts is destined to become the norm for the entire populace.

    As it happens, America has a vast social safety net. So for there to be 30mil uninsured is an absurdity. Between Medicaid, for the indigent, and Medicare for the elderly, the most desperate among us have at least the comfort of insurance. On paper. The 30mil uninsured arises from ineligibility from the aforementioned government programs and the high cost of private coverage. There is something to the (typically) conservative solution of allowing customers to purchase policies across state lines. And as a Webster Tarpley liberal, I want Medicare-for-All. The Obama-Romney prescriptions, however, are atrocious nonsequitor sellouts of the highest order. And such are our choices.

    Just when you thought politics couldn't any worse than Bush v. Gore/Kerry...

    Just an insane political scene. One Presedential candidate is running against what most consider to be his own best acheivement. The present President started his term with an economy that was shedding jobs at a rate of 750,000 a month, and a stock market that dropped to 1/2 of it's prior value. At present the market has pretty much recovered most of it's value. We are gaining jobs every month, not as fast as we would like, but we came so very close to the Second Great Republican Depression. And the fact that we are gaining at all is for the good. Yet we have the fruitloops stating that President Obama is an economic failure. And that they want to revert to the policies that took us to where we were at in January of 2009.
