#1 An federal agency headed by the same retired general officer who while still on active duty, brought the army the distinctive, Chinese manufactured [first batch anyway], black beret.

#2 Oh, joy, just think what Obamacare will bring to the rest of America. Let everyone enjoy the game of federal bureaucracy. Maybe someone can make a RPG or MMOG to prep people for the hundreds of hours they're going to spend 'playing the game'.

#3 What are you smoking, Procopius? The exchanges are state, not federal. The process is quick, simple and affordable. It's the OPPOSITE of the ridiculously convoluted, capricious and predatory private insurance system we have now.

#4 Was going to just comment that the VA hospitals are a national disgrace, but the troll offers an opening to make a larger point.

Bleeteth the Left:
Corporations = bad
Government = good

Well, they are both just people. The main difference is that corporations have to persuade you to buy something. Governments just force you. I don't get why some people prefer to be forced, but it's clear that they do. Willing and eager to be caged and fed. I pity them.

#5 Yes, the corporate health insurance companies that for years denied insurance entirely to my family and a million or so other Americans were giving me "choice." Riiiight.

Okay Lex, I can see where you're coming from now. I don't blame you for your hostility to the present system at all. I assume no private company was willing to pick up your liability? That's a bitch, been there. It's difficult making an insurance company pick up a liability, it looks bad on the books. One way one around that is rationing. Another way is a universal levy. But I suspect you know this. Care to let us in on wtf happened?

#7 Sounds like your established local regulators are not very good at their job, but I'm sure they will excel at a larger, more complicated mission this time for sure you betchya.

And the shilling against what is called a heavily subsidized industry, well how true that is aside, then they would have to at least pretend to make a profit. Government doesn't have to do that.

To add to lblis, there is also a culture involved in those entities. And it seems that rather than let the fat and old dinosaurs fail and be replaced by younger and more energetic mammals, these politicians give bailouts and prevent start-ups. So that means government is the problem, and since supposedly your government is by your consent, its you and your people who are failing to regulate the regulators.

Since you fail to regulate the regulators, you would rather have the regulators regulate themselves?

#8 What are you smoking, Procopius?

I don't smoke unlike, apparently you. I deal with history. The government has had amble opportunity to make an efficient workable system from the VA to Medicare. The answer to failing to accomplish that is to go even bigger. That you have sold your soul for promises for access to other people's resources doesn't mean the rest of us have to.
