    Given that the democrats didn’t need a single republican vote to pass the ACA, how exactly did the republicans take steps to sink it? Are you sure you understand how Congress works?

    Ted… the democrats had enough of a majority to pass the ACA without a single republican vote… so how exactly did the republicans force compromises? You seem to be confused about how Congress works.

    The only way that the minority party (whoever it is) can “force” anything is if the majority needs their votes. The democrats didn’t need a single republican vote. The republicans had no leverage whatsoever. They couldn’t “force” anything.

    Sorry buddy, but the democrats own the ACA. All of it, including all of the negative consequences.

    He smeared both of them and you only noticed him smearing Clinton. That says more about you than it says about Rall.

    It was a silly gaffe for anyone seeking the White House… but it isn’t any worse than Obama saying that he had “already been to 57 states…” or just about anything Trump has said over the past year.

    If you owe Bob $100 and Bob grabs your wife and kids, takes them prisoner, and demands his $100… guess what, Bob is holding hostages. And when you pay him the $100 guess what, you just paid a ransom. The fact that you owed the $100 is completely irrelevant and does not negate Bob’s actions – or yours.

    The Iranians were holding our troops. They demanded their money, and refused to release the troops until they had it in their possession. That is the definition of a ransom payment. It doesn’t matter that it was “their” money; by demanding it in exchange of a prisoner (read as “hostage”) release they made it a ransom.

    All eligible voters were given the opportunity to vote on the issue; the fact that only 2 percent cared enough to bother is beside the point. If people don’t like the results they should have gotten off their butts and voted.

    Well, for starters, she wasn’t Secretary Of State until the Obama years, so her server wasn’t really an issue at that point…

    And the alternative is Hillary. So sad.

    I suppose it depends on how you define “working”… if you mean people having access to health insurance, then I suppose it’s working. If you mean people having access to actual care that they can actually afford, it’s been a complete disaster. Premiums are much higher than they were for most people; and so are deductibles and other out of pocket expenses. And that’s only going to get worse as more and more exchanges bail out of the system.Basically, people are paying more for insurance, and getting less for what they’re paying. Less choice, less available care, less quality care – and much higher costs.Only in the world of government (and in the minds of liberals) can this be considered a “working” solution.

    Our current president has flagrantly bypassed Congress to wage unauthorized wars, make international agreements, and to change domestic law. Further, he’s also used the force of government to punish political opponents – via the IRS, EPA, and so forth. And he’s made the government less transparent than at any time in recent history.

    But Trump is the fascist.
