CBS' Dickerson: Obamacare "a jalopy" that's "barely operational"


quote:

As a political matter, this is not good. It sort of contributes to the feeling that the Affordable Care Act is a jalopy they’re trying to roll out of the driveway here at barely operational for the president. So that’s not good. The White House made the decision, though, take the pain now before the July 4th weekend rather than have all of these stories over the next year of companies that were laying off workers or having such a hard time implementing this. … The problem for Democrats running is that they’re already weighed down by the feelings people have about this, about this bill and about the opposition from small business and from businesses of all kinds. And though this delay, again, takes this story from being a chronic ailment as it gets implemented, it doesn’t really reduce the fact that in a lot of these states where Democrats are running, red states, this law is unpopular.

I don't see how anyone could support obamacare. It's just full of bad laws.

Years from now, revisionist history by the left will paint the bill as republican.

If you think this is bad, wait till socialized medicine. It will be a true nightmare in a country where massive amounts of miscreants are on the government nipple. And incompetent doctors and nurses are protected by their disgusting unions.

as a native american with access to free healthcare an socialized medicine now if you half arse these thing they won't end well.

I've changed my thinking on socialized medicine as a whole and think it's something we should strive for as a country but jumping out and doing stupid arse shite like obamacare is only setting us back long run.

Please explain what you like about socialized medicine, and what you dislike about Obamacare.

I would enjoy the fact that I don't have to pay $687 per month (my part, not my employer part) to have healthcare. It's a fricking racket and needs some sort of legitimate overhaul. What that will be, I have no idea.

That is already the line be used by some on this board...essentially saying that Obama and the democrats wanted something different but in an attempt to "compromise" they instead voted for the ACA on the heritage foundation model/the Romney model.

They curiously omit the fact that no republican president has ever proposed this or attempted to run with it. Moreover, they omit the fact that not one republican voted for it to get it passed.

The ACA is all on the democrats, but that does not mean they will not still attempt to blame the GOP for this debacle.

The dirty little secret is that it will perform just as they planned...it will destroy American healthcare with the wolf in sheep's clothing being the federal government solving the problem they created with single payer.

If you think the ACA is bad, wait until you see how bad single payer will be on the nation.

This administration is "barely functional." The only thing these clowns are good at is winning elections via manipulation of the dullards that vote themselves other people's money.


This admin is fast approaching Carteresque levels of laughing stock both locally and abroad.

It is a racket, but I'd like less government and not more. The current system is a mess of bureaucratic red tape and semi-monopolized markets. I applaud the physicians who quit taking insurance and simply post prices for services. We need to get back to some common sense.

if you want to get this sorted out in any shape or fashion, tort reform has to be included and get the cost of malpractice insurance under control...

Like I said, I'm not sure how to fix it but for God's sake how can someone pay $125 per month while I pay $687 for the same exact coverage? I feel like I'm getting fricked bad but have no other options.

The truth is, we just don't know what socialized medicine would look like in this country. We would have to do it to find out. Which is a frightening proposition

dislike about Obamacare.

no one read it. They cut a deal based on an executive order because if they put an amendment in the bill it would have had to gone backwards and they didn't have time to wait. They keep delaying the effects because it is going to be a cluster frick when it happens. The bill was also written by the insurance companies and disguised as something that would help us.


My thinking in supporting a move to socialized medicine is that there are 4 areas the government needs to be focusing its resources on in no particular order

1. health of the people
2. education of the people
3. defense of the people
4. transportation of the people

IF the government spent all it's time focusing on just these 4 areas and abandoning all the rest of it's over reach we'd be able to lower taxes and have everything this society needs safety net wise to reward entrepreneurship and economic success.

I'm also of the opinion that healthcare and education shouldn't be for profit enterprises though. It seems like for those two things they'd benefit the society as a whole much better if there goal was solely the service they are giving and not if they are making money or not.

ETA: I know this is a pipe dream and will most likely not happen, but hey you shoot for the moon at least you'll land among the stars.

Why would you trust an entity that can't even start a healthcare plan with your healthcare?

I can't understand how some an witness government fail at this, then turn around and say "I want single payer".

They think it is free. Also, a system in which the top 1% pay the vast majority of the healthcare expenses of the nation sounds really cool to them.
