A lot of these guys take Reagan to task on the Air Traffic Controllers strike. These kids don't remember the long gas lines and high mortgages. Wish we could resurrect him.

In order for the Republicans to win in November, they are going to have to find a solution to this problem, explain it to the ordinary folks and find some mechanism to put it in place.
Every day we see black people enjoying nice restaurants, 4 star hotels, driving expensive cars, buying high end clothes and living in the Presidential Mansion. Just like whites they have left many of their own in the dust. They worked hard to get where they are. They have arrived. That being said, the rest should not have to finance the lives of those who do not want the nicer life.

Start with the premise that people should have access to healthcare regardless of their socioeconomic status. Quit lumping those of us on Medicare with those on Medicaid. We started paying over 50 years ago. We supported our grandparents and, to a certain extent, our parents (many of our mothers never worked). That being said, please give a definition of a pre-exhisting condition. Their are many that are not brought on by any behavior (a kid with CP,for example) and some that are (drug addiction and pregnancy, for example). Have employers get group insurance and let employees choose what out of pocket costs they want to incur. Help those at the lower end of the wage scale with the payments. If people think their policies are not good, they will buy another and cancel the bad. The problem is that working people are now forced to buy into Medicaid. The law should have helped the 45 million the government says were without health care. Instead, it focused on those with insurance. Let people decide what is best for them, help those in NEED, and focus on the destructive behavior that leads people into unhealthy lives. If you smoke, you an AFFORD insurance.

You can't repeal it because they are still writing it.

How does the Massachusetts plan work??? We should have listened to Romney, and Romney should have explained it better. This plan is still being written and what we know we can put on a 4 by 6 card. Kids on policies till they are 26 is not new but there were some requirements. How about a little stipend till they are 28. No preexisting conditions is not new. They have been part of group plans (except for pregnancy) for years.
