So you think that it is a mere coincidence that costs came down when the ACA was enacted?
Sorry about the repeat posts.
For the first time in more than a decade, health care spending grew more slowly than the U.S. economy from 2010 to 2012, according to a new report by government auditors. Total U.S. health care spending was $2.79 trillion in 2012, up 3.7 percent from the previous year -- that amounts to 17.2 percent of the national economy, the Office of the Actuary at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services conclude in a report published by the journal Health Affairs. It's the first time since 1997 that health expenditures didn't outpace the gross domestic product.
Old propaganda I was looking for a blog regarding the Senate confirming Janet Yellen as the first woman to head the Federal Reserve on Monday. About time.
Mendacious, mediocre, meddling Mitt who was governor of Massachusetts mangles reality as he tries to pretend that the care that follows his last name is different to the care Republicans tacked onto the end of Obama’s name. Romneycare is Obamacare but Romneycare is something Mitt is proud of while even though he touted his care as the national model and even sent his healthcare team to Washington to help draft the other guy’s care, pretends that they are different and they are in one way because the care that Romney proudly attached his name too also covers abortion while the other guy’s care doesn’t. They are both modeled on a free market health insurance plan that has been kicked down the road by successive Republican presidents and Republican congresses for 40 year, you know the plan they pretend they wanted to implement for decades just to string along the voters. The PPACA is a bill of rights for patients and a market exchange not unlike every other type of market where you an comparative shop for the best price and the best deal and I haven’t heard the POTUS tout one single type or company offered plan so how the magnificent, mendacious Mitt can melodiously manufacture myths is beyond the meaning of mendacity. If you buy one of a choice of plans offered on the market from companies listed on Wall Street, then it’s free market shopping and the care named after Mitt is no more socialist than the care named after Obama but if you listen to maligning, media malingerers who are paid to lie, it’s the end of humanity and the falling of the iron curtain across America. The media should let this malfeasant rejected presidential candidate alone and waste no more time on him except to point out that he is still bitter and has taken to hypocritically maligning Obamacare which as I said is Romneycare. They should respond with a simple comeback every time Mitt prattles on about Obamacare by saying Mitt stop beating yourself up for being the father of Obamacare and its chief cheerleader until your party started to bad mouth it and then you for being the instigator. If Mitt was manly he’d have run on Romneycare but as it turns out the only thing about Mitt that the voters of Massachusetts are fond about is the care that bears his name, He lost his own state by a huge margin while running away from the only real achievement he had.
Too bad he still harbors "ill will" toward President Obama. The bitter, angry, loser has no class when it comes to the president. Same thing when boasting about young Chinese women who sleep 12 to a room, share one bath and are surrounded by barbed wire.
If you truly think and believe no balance has to exist in the worlds socio-economic systems, you're one of those people inviting catastrophe. When systems become unbalanced, you have social unrest. With social unrest, you have violence. With violence, you have death, destruction and the failure of the system. That's not my opinion, it's the opinion of history, the collective and relevant evidence of the past. Systems based upon a dog eat dog concept, a Randian, Dickensonian world are doomed to failure. They always have been and always will be. Either you're short on knowledge of world history or, like many, you don't care and are willing to take the chance; the risk of anarchy. It isn't class warfare when the fruits of labor, production, meeting the needs of maintaining a balanced socio-economic system hand in hand with those who own the means of production and the government to maintain a safe, secure and sustainable society. To think or believe otherwise, well, a person has to be delusional and bereft of common sense.
reaganite Thank you for your intelligent and accurate response. Normally on town hall all you get is name-calling
fix I think you already know the answers to your questions. The last 30 years have proved detrimental to the average American - and have been a boom for corporations. The "trickle down economics" that the right is still insisting works - has proven to be a big lie.
Jerry and Jim Just how old are you? I was hoping for an intelligent debate. And just who are the simpletons here?
