I had typed out a post but realize it is not worth posting. I do think it is worth posting the fact that despite our politics, no one can argue the fact that our infrastructure as a nation isn't ready, nor is our federal government ready to implement the ACA.
The infrastructure that has been built by the current (and essentially broken) model of health care? Of course it's not ready. And it never WILL be unless we force the change.
We actually don't disagree on the fact that we as Americans shouldn't be paying so much more for the same care offered to other technologically advanced countries.
I despise ACA as it's written and that's not worth getting into here. I agree completely that healthcare should be reformed.
Why should a half-assed bill be pushed through to reform healthcare, with no plan in place to actually implement the damn thing?
It is hard for me to grasp the fact that people don't get how bad this bill, and the subsequent dodging/mishaps regarding the implementation of said bad bill actually are. I've come to accept that fact now though and am eager to know how on earth you've come to the conclusion that implementing this bill is good for our country.
Has this President shown a propensity to lead?
Honest question, as I feel Clinton and Bush did in fact lead (even if I didn't agree with Clinton).
I simply don't see any leadership at all from Barack.
I expect "witty" comebacks that lack humor to anyone else, but welcome an actual discussion.
I GET how you all (liberals in general) and I can be so opposite on social issues such as abortion (i will not be convinced that it is ever "okay" to stop a beating heart as that is only for our Creator to decide). I do not get the willful acceptance of incompetence though.
I'm also pretty liberal on Gay rights as I don't think homosexual couples should be given different rights from heterosexual couples.
I'm also against capital punishment, unless there is absolute evidence of guilt (I.E. Bin Laden, CO theater shooter etc.)
