  •  IIRC, SS and Medicare weren't perfect on day 1 (4+ / 0-)

    but they got progressively better as time went on...

    the ACA isn't perfect, nor is it single payer, but it's one HELL of a start down the right path... Speaking for myself, I can FINALLY now get health insurance, which I was redlined out of years ago for pre-existing condition and cancelling my coverage when it got too expensive and became a too shitty non-coverage policy... $800/month and $10,000 deductible.
    What a joke!

    America's LAST HOPE: vote the GOP OUT in 2014 elections. MAKE them LOSE the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate. Democrats move America forward - Republicans take us backward and are KILLING OUR NATION!

      But comparing this Heritage Foundation written piece of crap to Social Security and medicare is absurd and you know it.

      •  My comparison was the lack of day 1 perfection (0+ / 0-)

        NOT between the programs themselves... and you should have seen that...

        and like I said, ACA isn't perfect, or, frankly, what we SHOULD have had, but given the INSANE GOP in Washington, nothing reasonable could have EVER passed... and if you think that passing single-payer was possible, THAT is absurd.

        But thanks for that personal attack ;-)
        Have a nice day.
