  •  I don't think either of them (9+ / 0-)

    want ACA repealed -- but they do want it to go through major modifications, as do I.

    It does some good things, such as the high-risk pool for those with pre-existing conditions and letting kids stay on their parents' plans until age 26 (especially in this shitty economy), but it's far from the best system we could come up with.

    But hell, Social Security wasn't perfect when it was first instituted -- it took a lot of tweaking and modifications to get where we are now (and it would be just fine if the GOP hadn't raided the piggy bank to buy their tax cut drugs).

    Now to try to end the wars we ask our gay and straight soldiers to fight. -- Chris Hayes (modified)
