      Turn it on. It's not pretty. We can continue to make excuses and whistle past the graveyard if we want to. I don't. I need the plan to work.

      I don't give a fuck how they do it. Just do it. IT AIN'T THAT HARD.

      •  I do have a TV (7+ / 0-)

        I don't watch Fox.

        Also read this today:

        So, at what point will reasonable people look at the successes in other states and begin to blame their own incompetent governors for the lack of success at home?

        Wouldn't that make more sense?

        Works in Massachusetts (98.4% covered, huge positive approval rating)...is working in Oregon...is working in Kentucky...etc.

        And yeah, it IS that hard. It is incredibly ambitious and hard, particularly since half the states forsook their responsibilities and dumped it on the Feds.

        •  Yes it would. (0+ / 0-)

          But they assumed no responsibility. They (GOP Governors) don't have to do anything. And they will get re-elected.

          I need the Feds to have a working plan. I'll vote with my feet, later.

            an application completed and the ability to see my options. I have a more complicated situation, with some variables that may change in the near future, so haven't been able to actually buy a policy yet. But I'm not going to blame Obama because my situation is unusual.

            I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

              Very few lucky ones. Oh well, no sense in arguing amongst ourselves. The proof will be in the pudding.
