Why is it that 3rd party Libertarians and so-called Independent candidates have left leanings? 3rd party voting is a wasted vote and never ever affects any change. And is typically a ploy to siphon votes away from the Republican candidate. Voter influence has to start locally by electing the candidates that most reflect the view of what needs to change at the time. For example, we have too many John Boener types that go along to get along and would negotiate away the constitution. In order to affect that dynamic you have promote more conservative candidates that CAN WIN AN ELECTION and influence decisions to more conservatively. This also applies at the national level and applies to both parties. Democrats and independents who blindly voted for this sea of garbage in 2008/2012 need to correct the course in their own party or move their a$$ to Venezuela.
What seems to be overlooked in this discussion of States not participating in the exchanges is that in the original 2012 ruling, that the mandate for Medicaid expansion was deemed as coercion by the Supreme court. I think the state Governors took this as a sign (after getting the opportunity the finally read the bill) that the Fed Government could also not coerce the states to setup the exchanges either. Aside from that Congress are not engineers and as such should not vote on laws that engineer this kind of change in people's lives. We need to run them all out of town.

Reduce the size of the EPA, have the states provide review and feedback into the process and for approval/rejection, using a group that has knowledge of the impacts and benefits for their state. Having representatives review this is mindless as they dont have the experience to understand (unintended consequences) when voting on this type of legislation in the past.
So, according to recent data, our Carbon Dioxide output (U.S) is at 1991 levels and consistently decreasing, yet China's output has been increasing exponentially in the past 10 years, and India's has been increasing linearly for that same time period. Last I checked we are all on the same planet, so how is penalizing our country going to help when other countries are not being held to the same standards/regulations?
And their healthcare professionals as well.
Uh. Then you aren't doing r'm your homework . United health care and . Aetna pulled out of m any state exchanges including THE insurance capital, Connecticut.
So, a Canadian software designed and implemented the website. Hmmm, since there are 3.5 pct of the workforce unemployed(I.e. not weekly unemployment numbers but millions of the workforce) it might have been prudent to go with American software development firms. And since the Canadian system is so great that until recently they come to the states for treatment... The adults are definitely not in charge in the Whitehouse.
The Solution: Life long HRA that anyone in the immediate family can contribute to. Tax deductible and is used only for medical bills and premiums. And can be willed to family members. People are accountable for their own health and educated early on the benefits of doing so. Direct contract between individual and insurance company, will increase competition and organically establish free market exchanges that will only need your medical id not all of your financial and personal information Absolutely not tied to the IRS Employer still offers contributions to premiums, but because the contract is between individual and insurance co., they dont have to hire the staff to support the current arrangement. Transitional period this is mandatory but if you let the market work this can be phased out This plan will diminish the need for programs like medicare and medicaid.
Uh, no. I refuse to get used to it. Its not the right solution. There are much better ways to address this issue. The thing is, because of the excessive regulations, its going to gut the middle class. Earning power is going to decline and just like every other government program, they underestimate the costs by over 100%. I would respond to your reactionary clap trap as you've obviously been drinking the 'Cool Aid' too long of this administration.
I now understand why all of the departments are buying up ammo and AK/AR guns....in preparation for the revolt that is going to happen over this train wreck of a law. Thanks SCOTUS for changing the wording of the law to make it constitutional.
