Simpson Targets Obamacare

Simpson and Bowles know that Obamacare is a problem, Simpson weighs in;
Quote:
"Who the hell is kidding who on what this is going to cost?" Simpson, the former Wyoming senator, said of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka "Obamacare." "We haven't found any constituency yet who wants to cut anything back anywhere."

A persistent lack of support from Washington to get a handle on the debt and deficit problem took focus of much of the pair's remarks.

For Simpson, the problem is especially apparent in health care, which they identified as one of five key areas where debt-reduction has to focus. Congress in 2010 passed President Barack Obama's national health care plan that will go into effect fully in 2014.

"This baby is on automatic pilot," he said. "It can't possibly succeed. There is no cost containment in this baby until down the road, and we know what will happen down the road ? nothing." http://www.cnbc.com/id/49845816

I say "screw Simpson" When he's ready to give up his healthcare that I pay for, as well as you, then who the hell is he to talk about others finally gaining access to healthcare. He's clearly biased because the general consessus is that the Afoordable Care Act will save the government millions. You know?.......... The republicans have done nothing to help the unfortuneate to gain healthcare. They're just pissed because MILLIONS of POOR UNPREVILLEDGED folks have now joined the insurance coverage country club that was reserved for only the well to do. The law stands now, so people like Simpson, better get used to it.

There are extremes, rainbow loves the nanny-state, the author of this email hates it (meanwhile the debt keeps rising no matter which side we're on).

Well the: whores, queers, jerks, perverts, jackasses, liberal (lying) media, minorities, socialists, communists, selfish, lazy, ignorant, intolerant, disingenuous, dangerous, treasonous, hedonistic, narcissistic, rude, obstructionist, and apologetic morons have spoken resulting in; a nation of sheep following the greedy into the unknown abyss of the final days of the Democratic Republic - lost is our former greatness founded on Judeo-Christian values and a western European Culture - welcome tyranny, theocracy (Islam/Sharia Law), and/or total socialism.

The Republic of the United States of America 1776 - 2012. 236 years. Not a bad run for an experiment in freedom and personal responsibility. The theory was that a republic would last about 200 years before the populace learns it can vote for politicians who will give them any and everything in return for their vote. In our case, I guess it's true.

In the beginning, only the property owners who paid the taxes were the ones given the right to vote. Now anyone over the age of 18 who hasn't committed a felony has a say in who leads us. And last week was the culmination of a plan set in place to make us all dependent on the government, and keep those in power who promise to take from the producers to give to the takers. We officially have more people interested in having the government look after them than there are those who want to be left alone to pursue happiness on their own.

Sorry George, Thomas, James and John, but we couldn't keep it going any longer. The desire for "free" healthcare and other "free stuff" is now stronger than a desire for freedom and self determination. We put up a good fight, but we weren't enough to outnumber those who say "make us your slaves, but feed us."

The original framers of the constitution were a bunch of white men who owned slaves. These guys were all opportunists. They believed that everything belonged to them. Too bad there weren't some real Christians among the group. Little by little, the poor and disabled are getting what's owed them. We need more taxes on the extreme wealthy, and socialized healthcare for all. THEN..... will America be a truly free country!
