Posted in: Republicans unveil plan to repeal, replace Obamacare See in context

Hilarious the downvotes. Gives me a grin that carrying on a civil conversation can raise such ire. Comments like 'Right wing propaganda' when my health insurance rates went up by 450% when Obamacare took effect. Yes. That's it. I'm just a huge right winger, giving my experience. The people on this forum. Just astounding. : P

Laguna, the current system is putting many in a really bad place. It's a really flawed system.

To leave a flawed system in place? Not a good plan. Is the current list of changes the right move? Of course not. I never said it was.

But to leave it as is?

I also find the voting system on japantoday comedic. You carry on a respectful conversation with someone, and you get downvoted. Makes total sense. 'Thumb Up' everyone! eyeroll

Laguna, The research I've done shows after Obamacare took effect, things rose sharply for many. It's a flawed system, that was poorly enacted. It was rushed, that's easy to see. Some agree, some don't. shrugs

Interesting. So, premiums hadn't gone up before Obamacare?

At slight increments? Yes.

To the tune they have Obamacare? No.

It's like using a Band-Aid for a major head trauma.

As it's been said, no Saudi Arabia on that list? Huh. Imagine that.

You can't have Americans forced to up their premiums 'at gunpoint'. Obamacare was badly thought out, and horribly executed. 'You can keep the docors you have now.' Nope. Not true. "Your health insurance premiums will not go up." Also not true. Obamacare is a bad thing. Just is.

Uh...yeah. I don't want him up here. There's enough crazy above the 49th Parallel. Don't need to add to it.

Gee, I wonder why the population of Japan is plummeting. There must be a reason or two.

Japan will be fine. Eventually the whole 'Gaijin' Mindset will fade, more immigration will take place to a more welcoming native populace. Sure, Japan has a couple of pretty rough edges (points to Dolphins) but every country on the planet has it's faults. It's one of the best countries on Earth. No way it's going to jump into a 'Black Hole'. Stop it.

As a long time DB Fan, I'm overjoyed Akira is back. After DBZ, things went really sideways. GT was pretty damn awful. Can't wait for it to come along.

@ Lucabrasi No, they're not to blame. Just tossing it out there as front page news instead of something good and not depressing would've been a nice change of pace. Can't fault them, as it's the same where I'm at. No one cares about anything 'Happy'. The awful things bring in the views. Sadly.

A fine reason to stop reading Japan Today for a while. "Oh! A nice new Japan Today to start my Morning. Wonder how Japan is doing. It's ok over here where I am. Kind of happy even. Let's have a read on the front page...wait...A Mother jumps...dead twins...Ok...I'm not happy anymore. Pretty depressed actually. Thanks Japan Today."

Middle School? So the kids complained because it wasn't as hardcore as their used to? It's middle school. They're already having rainbow parties. M is passed around like candy at a convenience store. This is supposed to be shocking? Cmon. Stop it.

"Japan has issued formal apologies over their suffering and offered financial compensation to victims via a non-government group, but Seoul maintains it is not contrite enough."

Because at the time, Japan was being kind of a douche, Militaristically speaking. Unit 731 anyone?
