    The same as always.
    It's supposed to explain its failure.

    I love how you expect your nation's FIRST TRY at something to be a flawless success.

    What does that mean? I really don't understand. All I can think it means is either death of becoming a criminal, but I don't think that is what you mean.

    What failure? Even the video clearly said "It is better than before". Sure it points out flaws, but everything has flaws, especially in the government and I doubt that anything better can be created as long as you have such massive opposition against anything even remotely "socialistic".

    When it has over 300,000,000 people to satisfy, yes I do. Big stakes require big planning. Even the website is terrible.
    I literally don't want anything different to happen to them. Give them healthcare. It all comes down to how tax payers' money is spent and lately that has been terrible. If people's money is going to be taxed then it better be spent well. Whether that's on healthcare, car insurance, idk it's up to each individual person. I think what I should have said from the beginning is that tax payer money is not well spent. This same disaster looks imminent with Sanders as president and his static plan for health care.
    Seriously Obamacare is not good. Just watch all the videos ever on YouTube and you'll see why it's not the best way to deal with healthcare. I wouldn't need to explain this to people in America unless they've been living under a rock, and I won't blame you for not knowing because you're not American. As for what happened before Obamacare, I wasn't really old enough to understand any of that so I don't have anything on it.

    You do realize that the president is not a dictator right? He didn't do this on his own.

    "Isn't perfect" doesn't mean "not good at all". Even the video you posted clearly stated it is an improvement.
    As far as I am concerned when after such a big reform thing you can say "at least it is better than before" than that is already quite a good sign. All too often I feel politics talks about reforms that make me go "oh please just don't touch that topic at all, you're making it worse". So a reform that made it better overall is a success.
    It probably isn't perfect. So what? I can't see any really clear plan by anyone that I'd label "definitely better, do that". All I know of is some groups that outright go "reverse it" and that is obviously a stupid idea when basically the general agreement is that the reform made things at least better in some way.

    The guy in the video said that by now it actually works and is really simple.
    Yes it seems there were issues at first. So what, before the website existed the issues were much worse. A laggy website is infinitely better than no website at all :p

    yeah that's my point : you on your high horse have the gall to criticize something you wouldn't even ever dare to take on. it doesn't matter that they're a state and a lot of people, the task is too colossal for even the united states of america. So give it fukin time.

    Do you criticize PA because despite Uber's great number and competence in working staff it didn't come out good enough to you right at first?

    no.

    so shut up.

    Actually, my girlfriend can't get a job and there's nothing wrong or directly disqualifying her.

    8/10 on the street have some sort of poorly treated or untreated mental disorder.

    My computer screen use has only increased and my eyesight has actually improved in the past few years. Still shitty, but not as bad as it used to be. It's known as a fact that the general quality of eyesight is decreasing worldwide but nobody knows why. It started before this 24/7 online culture and way before that nobody really kept track.

    Survival of the fittest is a nice idea, but why should we let everyone fend for themselves completely? If you're super healthy you already have an advantage, and the money you save can be used for people in need. And who knows, you may still get cancer or whatever and then someone else can pay part of your bill.

    As to smoking/drugs/drinking, this goes back thousands of years. You dont change that in a decade or two

    You left yourself wide open to a "but she's dating you, something has to be wrong with her" :p

    Dont know, i guess greater awareness of eyesight may contribute. You know, the age old "increased in statistic VS better measuring methods" problem
