No real alternative? Here's an alternative. Get the government OUT of the health care business. How can you expect to lower costs when you ADD thousands of government bureaucrats to the mix? We couldn't afford our health care before, but after we add (how many?) thousands of USELESS government bureacrats, it will somehow become cheaper, right? And there is NOTHING in the ACA which addresses health CARE. The bill is all about health INSURANCE. NOTHING in the bill will do a thing to make health care affordable nor protect one single patient.
WTF? Jews fast on Yom Kippur, and I knpow of no gentilr that refrains from eating in front of me during this holiday> They don't obversve the holiday, so what they do matters not to me. If we are to appease one religion, we should be appeasing ALL religions. I'm just sayin'.
"Take us down"? Well, if you mean the end of the big government, centrally planned economy, then, yes, I hope we DO "take us down". That's the problem with progressives. If they aren't running the show, they'll just take their ball and go home.

One big problem was the removal of the social stigma of being on the public dole. When I was young, no one would admit to bieng on public assistance. But sometime in the last 252 years, political "leaders" started getting more people to accept the fact that some people NEED assitance, and it was unfair to attach a social stigme to this. And you see what we have- a bloated welfare state, that will implode because of Cloward/Piven.

There are always enough syncophants to pay those outrageous speaking fees. You earn what the market will bear.
The real problem is the entrenched bureaucracy of the VA (and all depatments of government. Get rid of most of the bureaucracy, and you get rid of most of the problems. Then, the only problem you have is what to do with tens of thousands ofuseless, unemployable, bureaucrats (and I don't care what happens to a useless bureaucrat).
The problem, as I see it, is that liberals feel they can overcome and strip man of his basic nature. They can't but never come to that conclusion. They continue to believe they can change man "for his own good". And no good will come of it.
My arms went flailing, as well, with the improper robot reference. Danger, Will Robinson...
