    One year ago today President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

    Affordable quality Universal health care for all Americans. What any advanced nation should have.

    Good work by all who made it happen despite the vicious propaganda attacks by billion dollar corporate interests who feared a loss of profit control.

    Always remember not to trust any corporations who spend millions of dollars to sway public policy.. Their only motive is their profits not your health.

    So where's ours? Either our health care was already affordable since we have had double digit price increases AGAIN this year (if this were the case we didn't need an act of congress to make it something it already is). Or it's a failure since it hasn't made anything in health care more affordable.

    You can thank insurance companies for that. The current reform isn't enough but it's a start.

    Anyone who trusts politicians is every bit as big a fool as anyone who trusts corporations ever was.

    Even if only one corporation had a monopoly on health insurance (or any other industry) it would still not be as dangerous as government, because government has a monopoly on the legal use of violent force.

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

    So you concur it hasn't made health care any more "affordable". That's what the bill is called anyway. So it's a failure so far.

    And thanking insurance has nothing to do with it. It hasn't made the actual CARE any more affordable so how in the hell is it going to make the insurance that pays for it more affordable? Some people around here are so quick to blame companies they can't see anything else.

    O.k. jackass, since name-calling seems to be your strong suit. I'm not asking for anthing except efficien and effective care. We, as a country, are not matching our resources to our delivery of that care.

    My wife is a care provider and we have seen her reimbursement ratess drop substantially over the year. Our household has taken a major paycut due to her rates and my cost of prodiding healthcare to the family.

    It is not an anti-corporate slam as much as it is an attack on a system that is broken and marginally effective with respect to talent and resources.

    You don't fix a broken system by socializing it! Anyone with a brain knows that.

    The simple fact is that this atrocity of a bill has neither the power to improve our health care nor the funding to exist without imposing taxes/penalties/expenses on the working class since it still intends to fully care for all those who can't afford it being paid by those who must.

    There will never be health care reform in America sufficient to actually improve without TORT REFORM. Any other attempt to fix this system is futile.

    My question to the liberal minded who support this abortion of a bill is this:
    Why all the waivers? The Kenyan's administration has already approved 733 waivers involving millions of Americans. Review the list for yourself and report back to us all as to why the need for waivers if this is such a great thing and why impose it rather than offer it?

    You're so flucking stupid you actually think pelosi, bobo, barney fag, harry reid and the rest of the left care about your HEALTH.

    Liberals just chose to ignore relevant information about the world they live in, and then call themselves sophisticated for having chosen to be more stupid than God made them.
