Being one of the individual policy types this whole thing has got me concerned now and for the future.

America has been messing around trying to get some kind of proper health care policy for years under both Democrat and Republican administrations and Congresses. And Obama finally got actual legislation through for the first time, and now it all looks to be threatened.

I know the ACA might not be the best answer, but it is a start. And instead of all sides coming together to actually fix what is needed, they are all now running to cover their butts politically.

I guess they need to fear for their elected jobs, many for how many terms now? Maybe their biggest fear is they don’t want to have to go back into the public sector as they too might have to actually go through this mess if they go into business/practice for themselves. After all, they get such good healthcare being an elected government official.

I wonder if it is time that America put in place term limits so we get people in and out of the Congress. Maybe then they will realize since they have limited time, they actually have to perform a job to accomplish something.

Who knows, they might actually become public servants again instead of public dependents.

America sure does suck sometimes. This is one of those times.

If these assholes cave now, this is what they’ll be agreeing to:

1) People will be able to keep their existing plans for one year, which will undermine further signups at the state and federal sites.

2) People (like me) will wonder if it’s worth taking the chance giving up an existing policy, knowing that the GOP plan is and always has been total repeal, leaving ACA policy holders without any insurance at all.

3) Cancellation notices will go out again just before the 2014 elections. Guess who benefits from that?

Too dark a view. You forget the people who will be helped and the millions that are unaffected as already with a decent plan. It’s not going to be that bad.

Let the fuckers tip over. Let’s see the Democrats win another national election without the Obama coalition. I told the DNCC when that called me today, not a penny until the Democrats back this President. If they want to win in 2014, nothing less than full support will suffice.
