Resemble car insurance? Hell one must fight with their insurance companies on paying now. Will we be able to buy “collision, no-fault, personal injury, new car replacement?” Leave it to the Sentinel to endorse the hussein, pelosi monstrosity. Write and endorse a worthless program in which you yourselves do not know will be implemented. You would have served us much better having written an informational article concerning how many hundred percent our premiums go up. Leave it to the left wing sentinel.

Kudos to the Daily Sentinel’s editors (and reporters Gary Harmon and Greg Ruland) for their comprehensive – if not courageous – coverage of Colorado’s soon-to-be activated health insurance exchange (“Connect for Health Colorado”).

For three years now, the Sentinel has chronicled the highly-charged partisan debate over the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”).  If one uncritically believed the hyperbole too-often expressed in misinformed guest columns and letters to the editor – cynically fanned by the disingenuous pronouncements of 3d C.D. Congressman Scott (“Tea Party”) Tipton—“ObamaCare” embodied evil incarnate and evinced no socially redeeming virtues.

However, as informed readers already know, the ACA originated as a Republican idea – and was successfully test-implemented in Massachusetts years before it was enacted nationwide as “ObamaCare”.  Thus, after President Obama was inaugurated in 2009, Republicans had a choice – either demonstrate bipartisan support and take credit for their own good idea, or demonize it and President Obama in order to sabotage his presidency.

We all know what they did – and are still doing.  However, as CNN news anchorman Don Lemon—who had been routinely “reporting” Republican “talking points” as if they were factual “news” – recently admitted, they have been lying about the ACA all along.

Lemon now concludes that Republicans – having lied about “ObamaCare” for years – have maneuvered themselves into holding Americans hostage instead of telling them the truth.  According to Lemon’s own fact-checking, the three biggest “whoppers” (lies) are that it’s a job killer, that it will raise premiums, and that it would affect medical care.

Today, the Sentinel confirmed that market-based health insurance exchanges are “among the best aspects of Obamacare”.  Yet, still, some 27 mostly Republican-controlled states refuse to implement exchanges and/or refuse to inform their citizens about the ACA.

Imagine how much smoother implementation would be had Republicans helped govern responsibly rather than vindictively.
