  •  Keep Medicaid expansion, roll out the exchanges (0+ / 0-)

    without the fines for individuals (like Obama did for corporations)...and don't put the mandates back in until we have a real (not fake like the ones Democrats offered but did not pass) public option at the very least (like roughly 75% of Americans said we want in poll after poll).  The so-called "consumer protections" have no teeth so are really more suggestions than mandates, but it does not hurt to leave them in anyway.  I am just so angry at being fed to the wolves, and forced to pay them to eat us alive.  The public is even paying now to advertise their lousy unreliable products for them, and we're going to be paying corporate subsidies that go to them not us, out our wa-zoo.  They are genius and we are idiots.
