Anyone who has had experience in countries with national health care, or had done even cursory research, saw this happening. I hate to say told you so, but told you so (oh, it will get worse).

I note that in the last paragraph this phrase occurs: "the politicians who imposed this unpopular system on taxpayers in the first place." Who says it's unpopular? The GOP. Why do they say it's unpopular? Because it has Obama's name on it. Polls that simply ask about the provisions of it without using the name "Obama" have found it to be overwhelmingly popular. To say otherwise is disingenuous at best (more probably corrupt).

We should ALL be well aware of the constant, morphing tricks the right uses to destroy us.

John, the major problem with our health care is the young, elite thinking, better than you doctors. Everything they do and don't do, defines 95% of health care system. They follow their corporate orders.

The next doctor you go to is most likely going to be a prick. Act stupid and do and take what you're told and you'll be... well, not fine.

Joanne: I assume you read the article? Your mixing up your statements.."The politicians who imposed this unpopular system" were the GOP?? This is Obama's program! The Democrats imposed this system. Not to be too patronizing, but your posting was just bizarre.

A law should not be changed as frequently as a baby's diaper. At the will of one person. A law should apply to all equally. No waivers out. No extensions given to some and then some more and then some more even still. The only people left in this game are the individual mandate crew. Many of whom can not afford it even with subsidies. Then you have the medicaid crew.

A law should be equal and applied equally. Once written and enacted it should be so randomly changed without going through proper channels.

It's all crazy to me, really.

We all knew it would have to be adjusted and tweaked fir the start. Panties/bunch.

Left alone, the ACA will crash and burn on its own. Obama failed miserably with his legacy healthcare grab. He has changed "the law" over 27 times....so far. The insurance companies, if they are smart, will continue to pull out of this mess.

Adjusted and tweaked is one thing but breaking the law over 27 times is wrong.

SuzanneO, it's hard to find one positive reason to continue with this big elephant in the room.

Debbie, it went the way with the wrapped in the flag, freedom screaming nazi's like Diane.

Cal,
I have to question your motives, Cal. You seem to like attracting the trolls with BS articles.

There are no politics in tweaking what we knew needed tweaking. The Nazi's are making this political.
