    if the ACA contributes to a deficit. There's a lot of window-dressing in there for the GOP, but we just want the health care. Not our fault taxes are too low.

    •  That's pretty much what I figured, but what (0+ / 0-)

      most Democrats are too cowardly to say.

      So -- query me this, Batman:

      If costs go through the roof, how much health care are you likely to get?

      I'm told it's better in some parts of the country, but I see family members having one hell of a time with Medicare and the doctors they can get. I'm terrified of what it will be like when I turn 65 in a few more years.

      At some point, there is a limit to how much you can tax people without having a significant negative impact on them and on the economy.  A constantly increasing debt requires a constantly increasing chunk of money just to cover debt payments. Services suffer or taxes must be increased.  There is a limit to how much you can raise taxes, so...services will suffer.

        to cover every single American, at half the current cost per person. Too bad nobody's ever been able to figure that one out!
