Looks like people are starting to really express a need for the ACA. It would be a shame and a political disaster for Republicans to repeal it now. I think they have just lost yet another opportunity to screw the average American.

The vast majority were "repeaters", but they've got to make it look good as if so many new ones are jumping at the chance to get "affordable" health care. Hell, the taxpayers are subsidizing this, great news!

Gohogs I know you’re math challenged, but you proved it here. 77% is not a “vast majority.”

Dumbazz, 51% is a majority, what do you mean 77% is not a vast majority, that's more than 2/3. Man, you're stupider than I previously thought! Did you even read the damn thing? It sounds like you didn't.

gohogs, I did some research on this (I know you're research challenged) and vast majority is typically 85-90% or greater. So who's the dumba** now? Do us all a favor and get your head out of your tail and try to act educated.

Rbear,
I'm sure you had to google that, not that it's necessarily factual. You're not able to come up with that on your own. You know what you are, big shot? You're an arrogant elitist who thinks no one can match you in what you have to say. You're an overgrown jerk with a childish attitude. I feel sorry for anyone who HAS to spend time around you, you must be a big bore. BTW, you keep your head in your azz constantly.
