    The number one cause of bankruptcy are Medical Bills. Why is that so popular among Republicans?

    Ideologically speaking I love the idea of loser pays; however, practically speaking there is one very big problem with the law. It assumes that all plaintiffs can afford to pay if they lose. If someone is relatively poor and a doctor cuts off their wrong leg, how do they bring forth a suit if they cannot afford to pay if they lose. On top of that, what attorney, in their right mind, would take on their case?

    A more prudent approach would be one where some type of arbiter was able to approve a case's validity before it was brought to court. If the arbiter found the case to be without merit, a plaintiff could not move forward with any type of suit. Obviously, there could be problems with such a system also, but I think something like this would be a step in the right direction. What we want is to get rid of the ridiculous suits but not take away a person's right to sue when they are truly wronged.

    The GOP trash needs to grow up and stop acting like a bunch of 3 year olds.

    the ACA was found constitutional.

    It's not going to be repealed

    The right wing trash lost

    America won.

    When the US goes bankrupt like Greece and we can't borrow any more from China, then you will realize that the ACA is too expensive. The prescription drug benefit was too expensive. The Community Reinvestment Act (forcing banks to give loans to the unqualified) nearly killed the US economy.

    I don't see how the ACA is anything but an expense we simply can't afford.

    ACA is a tax, constitutional only because it is a tax. What happened to not raising taxes on the little guy, what happened to not raising taxes during a recession (yes we are still in recession)??

    So two years wasted on something unaffordable and nothing to help people find gainful employment. Yea, the Dems know exactly how to kill the USA. Their working on it day by day. It only slowed down because we got a House that is doing the job they were sent to do.

    Can't wait til we get the Senate back. ;)

    yawn...

    nonsense....

    false claims are maybe a couple of percentage points worth of cases.

    when doctors limit the damage they can do to people, then that's when liability should be limited.

    good to know you've bought into the insurance industry scam.

    the kochs would feel very gratified, i'm sure.

    But, there is the opportunity to repeal the Obamacare. Rather, Dispute it's constitutionality. Since it is now a tax, according to law, the bill should have originated in the HOuse and it did not.
