    •  Probably true with my Fortune 100 company (5+ / 0-)

      though I'm a Broncos and IT fan.

      I had to listen to a wingnut spouting for hours yesterday on the evils of the ACA, saying he's looking forward to it failing and complaining that women now don't have to pay extra.  I mean, he has some points about how it could be better, but he's just anti-anyone else possibly benefiting if he has to pay anything extra.  I've tried arguing with him before but yesterday I just shut up and read the Great Orange Satan.

        ...you can't reason with them...at all. ACA sure could be better HAD IT allowed to be from the get go. Now what should happen is Congress passes things that do make it better (actually that was the plan from the get to...Obama got what he could...and man, what a clusterfuck it all was to get what he could. Then it was to be improved upon ala Social Security and Medicare).

        AND this crap now about complaining how it should be better is code by the GOP because they will NOT allow any tweaks to be made to it via Congress. This is always their tactic...create the meme that ACA should be improved but not allow that to occur. So of course they root for it's failure...
