Start paying taxes and we might listen to your rants. Then again, who believes you anyway?

What Baucus called a train wreck was the republicans defunding the pr push to tell people about the health care law. Get your facts first. But Tea Partiers don't care about facts do they?

Lets see if Obamacare works. If it is as bad as Republicans say it will be, they can use it as call to action in 2016. Then make changes that better fit or come up with an alternative. But until then Republicans will say how it will be terrible, and the left will say it it would work if it was funded.

I feel like if it was the train wreck the right thought it would be, they would let the left just jump into the fire. I believe they have some concern that it will be a success.

If it's so great why did his big supporters get exemptions?

I think until there's a feasible enough healthcare system to people like him, they need to pay healthcare for those who don't have it, see how quickly their tune changes then.

Predicting a "train wreck" is bound to attract a crowd of excited spectators to the obstruction on the tracks.

Democrats, the IRS, government workers, none of them want any part of Obamacare. Half of the 1200 exemptions have gone to special interests in Pelosi and Harry Reid districts. They even gave exemptions to the Washington Post employees so that the paper wouldn't bad mouth Obamacare in DC. As for people like Lilrud, you're clueless as Baucus was calling it a train wreck in response to Sebelius testimony before Congress and the fact HHS has missed 50% of the roll-out deadlines already and as time has passed, Obamacare has gone from revenue neutral to now $1.7 TRILLION in the red but of course it will run a deficit much higher as all government programs end up doing in the long run. There will be doctor shortages, longer wait times and more refusals for treatment than ever before. Studies have already shown that many smaller, rural hospitals will be going out of business. Just like most things in life, when it comes to quality, you get what you paid for it.

You cannot give coverage to 30 million people without someone else footing the bill. In this case it will fall once again on the middle class. It will blow up and we will pay the price just as Clintons ill advised plan to let the poor purchase houses they couldn't afford.

You all are full of hot air - you just can't stand the fact that Obama took a republican idea and is making it successful. Here are the hard facts. I just checked on what my insurance will be for 2014. My premium is DOWN 24%; My deductible is DOWN 5% and my co-pays are DOWN 2 1/2%. The facts speak for themselves. Obamacare is here to stay.

This has nothing to do with quality health care. This is a ploy to get more people on the public dole and to keep the votes coming in.No one is going to vote against their own wallet that is filled with cash from somewhere and someone else.

the mass. model has been, for the most part, successful . Republicans conveniently ignpore that,

STOP THE LIES and stop the misinformation 1.) when people actually start experiencing obama care in 2014 and 15 they will (mostly) appreciate it and 2.) sooner or later we will have a single payer like (oh I don't know) EVERY OTHER CIVILIZED NATION on EARTH. whf is a matter with you people????

duckster, I've got family and friends who live I countries that have single-payer healthcare. It's nice if you don't need emergency care or if you need surgery on a sooner rather than later basis. Since you're on a rant about the U.S. doing what "every other civilized nation on Earth" does, I look forward to you pushing for drastic reduction in the 48 million getting SNAP and the deportation of illegal immigrants like every other civilized nation on Earth. Do all of the "civilized nations" have an insurance mandate, exemptions for special interests and their taxing agencies having doctors checking the gun ownership of their patients?

Mel says: "...we haven't seen anything yet with Obamacare woefully unprepared..." WHAT A COINCIDENCE; OBAMA HAS BEEN WOEFULLY UNPREPARED FOR 5+ YEARS!! Further Mel says: "...If President Obama wants to keep his word,.." OF COURSE HE DOES NOT WANT TO KEEP HIS WORD, IT WOULD SPOIL HIS SHABBY RECORD OF LIES. (does "transparency" ring a bell?, How about "not one thin dime"? IT STINKS ALL THE WAY TO HEAVEN WHAT THIS MAN HAS ALREADY DONE TOWARD DESTROYING AMERICA. You really can't over state his inadequacy.

Obama "care" would be wonderful if you never needed any health care... and didn't mind getting your socks taxed off your feet.

Reverend your lying. Your letter is the Big Lie of Fox News balanced reporting. What the truth is medical care in this nation is out of control read NYT last months Sunday edition, you know something other than an Ogden Newspaper. NYS insurance costs are expected to significantly lower according to the newest poll but don't read that, don't listen to that, don't repeat that because Fox News isn't repeating it because you all have one single agenda damage Obama. The problem is the Republican Party agenda has been rejected by this nation's voting public we know them as : The People.

bobbo, if you want to talk about the will of the American people, look at the House of Representatives where the Republicans have a majority. Obama got elected because of big city pluralities that were made possible by no voter ID and bussing people to the polls (easier to do in big cities), a lousy campaign by Romney and highly suspect voting irregularities. A common complaint in various states with touch-screen voting was that a Romney vote would default to Obama. Democratic counties having more votes than registered voters and some counties having precincts with 100% of the votes going to Obama. Not even Saddam Hussein, Ahmedinejad and Hugo Chavez got 100%. Why do you think Eric Holder is fighting so hard against voter ID? He and Obama know they would have a very hard time winning if we had national voter ID (like every other civilized country on this Earth).

Lilrud, you claim "What Baucus called a train wreck was the republicans defunding the pr push to tell people about the health care law." Substantiate you claim. As for Bob, he claimed that I lied. I simply asked him what statement I made was a lie. He has yet to point it out.
