Give credit to the teachers and our enlightened administration despite the mindless bitching that goes on here.
Fortunately there are an overwhelming sizable number of people here in the village who appreciate what the teachers do. People should not make the mistake that the "opinions" expressed by the deadenders on this blog by no means represent the attitudes of the large majority of the population.
I'm done. Go ape.

Turns out it is up in the air whether or not federal employees are or aren't covered under the ACA -- http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/federal-eye/wp/2013/04/30/bill-would-force-federal-employees-onto-insurance-exchanges/

Lundt, they are not calling for an end to the ACA.

Simple reasoning Steve. The acting head of the IRS was a Bush appointee. Who in their rational mind would think that a Bush appointee would launch such an investigation? Therefore, a rational person would not imagine that the White House would launch such an investigation with a Bush appointee in the way.
Here is a more rational discussion of the issue - http://tinyurl.com/aewdzv9.

Designed by the Heritage Foundation, implemented in Massachusetts, the ACA is hardly unknown. Despite right wing legends, there has been a lot of thought behind this.
Maybe it shouldn't have to been done this way, but Obama had the boldness to do it. Somebody had to do it. We couldn't keep going the way we are going with our health care system ranking 37th in the world. We get less by paying more.
Of course a lot of people are going to be unhappy. You have people who for what ever reason want to do nothing, you have people who feel it didn't go far enough. You have people who simply doesn't want anything Obama is behind works at all which, for all intensive purposes is traitorous. Nevertheless all big systems make a lot of people upset when they are implemented.
The social security system that some want to "reform" has been hated by some from the second it was inked, or in some cases the second they became aware of it.

Some pretty good ideas in those three articles. Most of us -- left and right -- can agree that the goal is that every one gets covered and no one goes broke, and we don't care how it's done. Americans are basically pragmatic and away from this blog, not big into ideology.
The trouble is someone had to come up with something. We couldn't keep going the way we've been going. Admittedly even among the left the ACA gets grudging support because it isn't single payer. Obama admits that this is a start and expects big changes. But the problem with the GOP is all we hear is "kill ObamaCare" (they omit that also being killed will be the people now getting coverage) and have not made any effort to present us with an alternative.

The nonpartisan legislative fiscal bureau now says that Walker's Medicaid plan is now over $70 million more than they first thought, bringing the cost to Wisconsinites to $170 million to not accept federal funds for BadgerCare.
Plus thousands are not going to get coverage.
Question for you "Christians" that want to repeal the ACA and replace it with nothing. How many people do you want to kill?

Get lathered up thanks to your imagination, rant, repeat.

Think Jesus would be cool with the idea that if you (that being we all) have the power to help other people and we don't do it?

Yeah there are differences. Just about all of them have better health outcomes and they catch conditions early before they become expensive.
