Squrlz4Sale-"The ACA isn't perfect, but it's an improvement."

You THINK it will be.

What happens when it ends up being much, much worse?

bliznik-"It's like saying, "Toast, Roast, Boast, Coast, Most. What do you put in a toaster?"


BritInvasion-"Modwain is unbiased because he is from Europe "

Sorry, the latter part of that statement does not necessarily follow the first part.

Unless you're willing to include 5Cats in that, the statement is crap.

bliznik-"and Obamacare passed."

Sorry, it was 'deemed' passed. Not the same thing.

FredSpudman-"@OldOllie Europe isn't a country."

He didn't say it was. Please try and keep up.

Oh, and 5cats, i am sorry, i am lazy now, i hope you dont mind that i will not bother posting a link, a foto or a story of any random riot that has happened in the united states in, well, i am pretty sure we wil be happy enough when i say last year.. right? but if you think it is still needed, go google it yourself.
Dont worry, i am sure that looking up stuff about the usa in a negative light will not get you investigated on by what ever law based agencies are around to monitor us this time.. Mostly the nsa i think but from what i read on here, the fbi may be in on it too..

And i like to bash on this, but in all fairness, i would not be surprised if other west and east oriented countries do the same. so yeah, i shouldnt bash on it.

Btw, does the government shut down state side now also mean that certain invasive actions of different government agencies is now at a pause? just curious, i think not but it would be funny

ok,m you can keep bashing eachothers heads in with arguments and what not, and you can even make claims that things in other parts of the world are so much better or worse then they are state side. Definetly dont look to socialist principles, or do keep pointing out for example, that things arent much better in europe, because.. well, teh riot example given earlier by 5 cats. This is both funy and very true, things arent perfect in the european union of nation stats ,not at all, but they are still talking about it, thinking on how to do things better. Are they there yet? hell no, not sure if they ever will be, but that, how ever funny it may seem, is not the point.
The thing is, that leaders, no matter what system you choose, need for those relying on them, to lead. how they do it is what distinguishes despot and enlightend leaders. If you hold one group back just so another group can benefit against the first group, i fear you are no longer in the enlighthend catagory

FredSpudman: The European union does certainly act like one single country both in trade, banking, money, transit and many other aspects. They do have squabbles amongst themselves, but so do our individual states.

@FredSpudman: Um, when did @OldOllie SAY Europe was one country? It's a continent, eh?

There's America (the country) and NORTH America (the continent). People are often leaving off the "North" part, much to Canada and Mexico's chagrin...

So yeah! Europe is SO PEACEFUL! Look at the past 100 years...

Ok, how about modern France (riots) Sweden (riots) Greece (riots)... hummm... Spain? Riots.

"You can say its representative of that area or state"

You do bring up a good point, but you either don't know what you are talking about (which seems most likely), or you didn't even review the link I provided. It was a combination of 378 different surveys taken by differing agencies (both liberal, conservative, and everything in between) with a total of 413976 total participants. No, it doesn't "represent" the entire population, because it is a damn survey of random people. However, it lends us enough information that we can make inferences about the total population with 95% confidence that we are in fact reporting what we say we are at 85% strength.

Those numbers (95 and 85) lead us to believe that what was measured was accurate and a good representation of the entire population.

The type of test that is is called a t-test. Welcome to your first lesson on statistics. School is out now, run along.

Also @tedgp, hereis a sample size calculator, you know.. what statisticians and researchers use to figure how many of a population is needed to make inferences.

@tedgp -- The link I provided (This one) Can say with 85% confidence, and 95% accuracy that in fact 51.1% of people disapprove of Obamacare. The total sample size was 413976 participants.

Your stupidity on the matter is showing. I on the other hand am a statistician.

One can conclude based on the Real Clear Politics assimilation of polls, that there is a very strong reason to believe that half or better of the nation disapprove of Obamacare for whatever reason.

I'm not qualified to get into the ins and outs but, gosh, you Americans have a disturbing capacity for hating each other.

Right. We should take a lesson from Europe, because you're so peaceful and loving.

Squrlz: "I meant that money had been *appropriated for it*."

Nope, it's not all been appropriated, not by a long damn shot. The CBO has said it would cost about $2 trillion over a decade and still leave 30 million people uninsured. There is absolutely no accounting for that in the bill.

Also, "We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year, it's done, we don't need to do it," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, said in February of 2012 when there were 1000 days without a senate budget.

It's now been over 1600 days without a senate budget, we are $17 trillion in debt, more people on food stamps than ever before and the labor force participation rate has plunged to levels not seen since Jimmy Carter in 1978.

The senate hasn't passed a budget since April 29, 2009. That's an undeniable fact, Squrlz.

I know it doesn't, 5Cats. I am just stating that ACA isn't enough for me. The individual mandate doesn't make sense to me unless it's universal healthcare. :P

But hey, if you really hate it that much, I'll trade you citizenships! :D :D

You know what else is open during the shutdown?

Obama's Golf Course! He played this weekend! 35th round this year...

Obama golfs while America burns? Is that how it's supposed to work?

Lol.... hmm...

How about you just leave statistics to those who understand them.


That includes you then i take it, because you obviously have no clue what you are talking about. Unless you poll the majority of citizens in an area, then there is no possible way you can say that your very small statistical base is representative of the entire country.

You can say its representative of that area or state, but certainly not a statistical analysis of over 350 million people.

These people that are furloughed...they were never not going to get paid. They would always have gotten back pay. That's something people do not seem to understand. Sure it will inconvenience some of them in the present but they will get all of it.

@HumanAction, I'm all for a system of checks and balances. I actually think it's great to continue to have a discussion about different laws.

But how many times should we fight the same battle? There was a fight over Obamacare in the House and Senate, and Obamacare passed. There was a fight in the state courts, and Obamacare passed. There was a fight in the Supreme Court, and Obamacare (for the most part) passed.

Is this issue so important that we need to keep fighting this particular battle over and over and over again? I understand fighting repeated battles over human rights, but I don't really understand these prolonged battles over who pays for healthcare.

"She's working; they are not."

Some of them ARE working, like the Capitol Police who protected members of congress from that deranged woman the other day. THEY are working and not getting paid.

well, since congress just voted to give back pay to these lay-abouts...you can not say she voted to take away their paychecks. the fed workers should be happy, they are getting a paid vacation.

So, let me get this straight - you want a system without checks and balances? After all, that's what this is - a demonstration of checks and balances at work.

See, our government was setup to require all major sections to agree in order to pass a new law/budget. Unfortunately, this also necessarily means that any one section can completely block the passing of a new law/budget.

For example:

1. The President can veto a budget;
2. The Senate can refuse a vote on a budget; and,
3. The House can defund whatever the Hell they want to.

See? Checks and balances at work. I don't understand why you want to get rid of that.

@patchouly, "LOL! I am always amazed at how a person can be brainwashed to hate something that is good for them..."

Yea, after getting a quote, if I drop my wife (who is pregnant) and only buy Obamacare to cover myself, my monthly costs go up 300 dollars a month. So yeah, I dunno about being brainwashed, but let me tell you, I am real fu*king excited to get started on this insurance.
