I agree. Obamacare is such a train wreck the Repubicans should just stand by and watch the crash. Who cares if anyone is hurt because of this bad law or that a majority of Americans have been opposed to it since day 1. It's not up to congress to listen to the people who've elected them they only need to listen to Obama, because he knows best, after all.

shadow - the sequester law passed lowering spending and is the law of the land but the Dems in the Senate want to repeal and restore the $30 billion in spending each year for the next ten years. The Dems in the Senate must be the one year olds. Shadow, you must remember the ACA will be a deficit spending of $270 billion a year for the next ten years passed only by the Dem Majority in both Houses of Congress which only adds to the debt. If our current deficit is running around $700 billion a year, the reversal of the sequester adds $30 billion and with ACA adding $270 billion a year, we will exceed the increased debt limit of the additional $1 trillion before the next year ends. Forgot, President Obama says deficits don't matter as they don't add to the debt.

Early reports are, that the Affordable Care Act in California is boffo. And, in Florida, not-so-boffo. In fact, anti-boffo.

How can that be?

Hmmmm...wonder who the governors are of those states.

Maybe Mitt should go show those folks how he did it so successfully in Massachusetts.

(I miss him so.)

Auntydem - different times. Then deficits were in the low billions, now they are in the trillions and counting up fast and we still haven't felt the effects the ACA will have on the deficits and on the debt. Obama said the deficits were unpatriotic in 2011 but now beleives they are the results of great works by a great president. NOT!

Auntydem - "U.S. debt jumped more than $300 billion on Thursday, the first day the federal government was able to borrow money under the deal President Obama and Congress sealed this week. The debt now equals $17.075 trillion, according to figures the Treasury Department posted online on Friday." All time record since the $238 billion in 2011.
