I call what they're proposing knee jerk because it won't help at all and they're using these victims as a platform to justify more control for the sake of it.
Right, and I tried to give examples of a couple of non-knee-jerky things that could be done to improve the situation. The biggest elephant in the room is still the rather appalling state of mental health care in this country. Until we start doing something about that, instead of just dispensing pills to anyone with insurance, anything else we try is just a band-aid at best. Unfortunately, that hasn't been a priority for either party, but the Republicans are generally much more opposed to broadening access to health care. Time for them to face up to it.

Regardless of its flaws, Obamacare is better than what we've had up until now, and certainly better than the huge nothing that Republicans did over the 10 years or so that they were in control. As far as I'm concerned, they had their chance to do something constructive and passed on it, so they can quit whining now and start cooperating and working to improve it. Particularly focusing on improving mental health care. Then maybe we could start getting somewhere.

You're saying the same thing I have been saying, careful Beamer might label you as an irrational unfeeling moron.

As much as I hate to say it you're spot on with regards to the Repubs dropping the ball on healthcare as well. I still believe Obamacare is a total abuse of the commerce clause and will end up costing everyone more for healthcare overall, though it's at the point where both parties need to knock off the partisan bullshit and get some things accomplished.
