    And second I am still skeptical that the gentleman in question wasn't trolling. Just because he isn't coming from the hard right doesn't mean I am going to uncritically accept his story, which was as I said, incredible.

    There were plenty of folks from the hard left who would make up any shit they could think to discredit the ACA because it isn't single payer. This shit has been going on for 5 long years now. Enough already. It's the law. It happened. Deal with it.

    You can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.

      Assume that the story he told were entirely fictional yet fit with the experiences of many people around the country?

        be grateful and wait and wait and wait.

        Tell me again why someone has to create an account and go through hell to find out what the costs for them will be?

        Why the hell do I have to confirm where I used to live?

        What's wrong with just putting in someone's age, how many people are in their family, their ages, what their income is, and then finding how what it will cost them?

        Why does anyone have to create an account now until they're ready to actually sign up for it to find out the costs?  Why?  What's the point?

        It's not like I want people to get sick and die. Look, I said if I was wrong in joining the pile on, then my bad.

        I am unconvinced at this point that I was. But maybe I was. Either way, you have made your point. Dude wasn't a Tea Party hack. I'm not saying he was. But the ACA bashing has become extremely tiresome.

        You can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.

      anyone whose story doesn't fit your perspective is a troll. You got any other bright insights?

      I want examples of the lying lefties you speak of. links that prove your point. Actual factual stuff.

      And if you don't act like a dummy I won't call you one. It's pretty easy to avoid me hurting your feelings.

      I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.
