What do you perceive to be the biggest calamity of 2013?
Is there something that happened in 2013 that you perceive to be the biggest calamity of the year? If so, what is it? Thank you for answering.
Obamacare is the biggest calamity for 2013 - due to the lies that were told. It will harm more citizens than it will ever assist because the healthcare system is now run by incompetent government bureau-rats. This law was not constructed to help the helpless, but to injure the hardworking middle-class. It does not increase the number of medical professionals. It only creates chaos through additional taxes and larger cost share for the insured. It is a typical community destruction model that discriminates against the hardworking public while not assisting anyone. We should have known this was going to happen because Obama never provided any assistance to any group during any prior activity. He failed in all previous ventures because he cannot comprehend the actual requirements necessary to achieve advancement. His personal narcissistic attitude always leads him to a destructive end. While his followers continue to drink the koolaide, the competent recognize the calamity brought by the discriminator.
I will disagree. Withf Obamacare, I now have insurance. Prior to that, after losing my job of 22 years I was turned down by every major company offering major medical coverage. Obamacare allows me to buy insurance. It was a victory, not a calamity.
Affordable health care for all is a citizen's basic right. It is about time America caught up with other developed nations on this. In a few years everyone will be applauding it.
Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) would get my vote.
First there is all the damage, lives lost and broken. Then there is the way it was mishandled from start to finish that made things so much worse and cost so many more lives.

What exactly is "Obamacare" and when does the law go into effect?

The question should not be who's to blame for AHCA, the question should be, "Is it working." Is there anyone out there who has signed up, had a good experience, received much cheaper healthcare than before?

How many people complaining about the healthcare bill actually know what's in it?I see a lot of people complaining and crying about how it will destroy America etc. What I don't see are logical arguments against it or any evidence that said people are making educated and informed opinions - and not...
