Yeah, it's a copy of that.

@59 We especially disagree about giving a blank check to some corporate tool every 4 years.

Countries that use this form of health care payment system include Germany, Switzerland, France


Private insurance plays a minor role in these healthcare systems (supplemental insurance is usually private) so it's not comparable to the ACA, not that they are a panacea either.

@53 Obama wasn't on the ballot but congressional Democrats were more or less running on his policies and their own response to it in congress (many conservative Democrats lost for precisely that reason, remember). A whole summer of corporate media showing TPers assaulting republican healthcare policy as if it were socialism was less than conducive to having progressives go to bat for something they didn't even support. Denying that Obama was a huge let down to the millions who mobilized to elect him and needed something significant to come out and support Democrats in 2010 is really lame. Obama gave it away without a fight.

@52 Anyone with integrity who has looked at Wikileaks's publication of the so-called trade agreements says it's more or less a corporate coup. Your saying nothing about it for the last few month shows how easily people like you are cowed into silence.

So all of you, if you don't vote in all elections, go look in a mirror. You are a big part of Obama's troubles and the reason why he has not been as progressive as we all hoped. And if you continue not voting in off-year elections, you will contribute to the failure of another Democratic president, if one is elected in 2016.


You have got it exactly backward. People don't vote because they perceive there is nothing to vote for or because they are actively prevented from doing so; it's called disenfranchisement. Progressive constituencies didn't turnout in 2010 because they already knew Obama wasn't who he pretended he was during the campaign following his reappointment of the architects of deregulation and because the ACA isn't progressive healthcare policy, which Democrats could have campaigned on, for example.

It's not my fault that you can't see that politicians were pushed into marriage equality by people. Now you go on making up stories about what Obama did. Reality based community, my ass, it's more like sycophant central that can't be arsed to say anything about an on-going coup over the last 6 month.

@21, 22, 23 , ...

Obama has nothing to do with this victory and attempts at making it part of his legacy should be resisted with everything you've got. Let's give credit to whom it's due not to the political opportunists. Obama has shown plenty of disregard for common people (has anyone of you heard of TPP for the latest?) that his pretense at caring is not very convincing. Don't be tools.

@17 I didn't know that being grounded in reality and facts rather than rhetoric and powder in the eyes amounted to feeling like a victim but you are free to your own worldview.

@4

Can't we have some space free of rampant commercialism or are we also going to have to deal with these things buzzing around us all the time? Next thing some greedy moron will think about sticking advertising on them.

We won't even talk about security issues with drones (from run of the mill accidents to terrorism) but if Besos and co were to personally shoulder the liability rather than hide behind articles of incorporation, they'd sound a lot more credible.
