The ACA isn't perfect, but it's better than nothing.

Maybe in a few years when it's not helping enough, people will realize it's time for single payer.

I just came across this that shows how much conservatives love to lie to themselves.

A. It's not just longhorn, some idiot Congressman was spouting this nonsense.

B. The Weekly Standard blog that was pushed this nonsense, posted an update to their post and LIED SOME MORE.

Today in Conservative Obamacare Self-Delusion

One of the things I tried to explain in my print story about the Obamacare wars is the degree to which Republicans have whipped themselves into a frenzy over the law through a process of self-deception. The conservative-media world is both completely obsessed with Obamacare and creating a news cocoon in which the most important news about the law — the lower-than-expected premiums and sharply falling health-care inflation — doesn’t exist at all, and the fate of the law can instead be tracked through a procession of exaggerated or completely imaginary events all showing its rapid collapse. Conservative news sites churn out new Obamacare collapse stories every single day, creating the impression of the law’s continued and unmistakable destruction.
A perfect example comes via a National Review report from the House Republican meeting today. Influential Republican Jim Jordan waxes enthusiastic about the agreed-to plan to threaten to default on the national debt in order to force President Obama to destroy his own health-care plan:
Quote:
“All the momentum is in our direction. Warren Buffett said yesterday, ‘Scrap the bill.’ The AFL-CIO said last week, ‘Repeal the bill if you’re not going to fix it.’ Everyone knows this thing isn’t ready. Everyone knows,” said Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio, a former Republican Study Committee chairman, referring to the health-care law.
Quote:
Anderson hilariously issued an “update” to his completely false item, in which he notes: “It appears that Buffett made his anti-Obamacare comments in 2010, thereby showing that he, like most of the American people, has opposed Obamacare since even before it was passed.” This is also completely untrue, since Buffett endorsed the passage of the bill in that interview and others.

So if consrevatives want us to listen to Warren Buffett on Obamacare, you can read what he told the Omaha World-Herald which he owns yesterday.
Quote:
Stories saying that Warren Buffett wants to “scrap Obamacare” are false, the Omaha investor said Tuesday.

“This is outrageous,” Buffett said in a World-Herald interview Tuesday. “It's 100 percent wrong ... totally false.”

...
I've never suggested nor thought Obamacare should be scrapped,” said Buffett, who has supported Obama's political campaigns. “I support it. It relates to providing medical care for all Americans. That's something I've thought should be done for a long, long time.”

The issue I have with the republican position on this is that no one Iv seen has offered a valid counter option. I don't care for obamacare in general but there are undeniably some positives. Also it is at least an attempt at a solution. The old quote the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing you can do is the wrong thing and the worst thing you can do is nothing applies here IMO. Whether or not you like the bill(I don't particularly), or like obama(I don't) getting a healthcare bill of this magnitude passed after decades of politicians kicking the can down the road is a huge accomplishment.
