That the Republicans vehemently opposed Obamacare is to their credit. And even more credit should go to the Democrats who bucked their own party and President and voted against Obamacare. This legislation is horrible on so many levels. And it is one of the main contributing factors causing our current economic stagnation.

And let's be crystal clear that Obamacare is entirely the responsibility of the leadership of the Democratic Party. In 2009 and 2010, the Democrats had the White House and overwhelming majorities in both Houses of Congress; they didn't need any Republican votes to pass whatever they wanted.

Obamacare is owned exclusively by the President and the Democrats.

Democrats are glad to own it. Meanwhile Republicans can own the stagnation of the economy the lack of compromise that makes us a joke around the world.

They shouldn't be. It's not a health care law, it's a health insurance giveaway and a windfall for the major insurance companies. I'm pretty conservative, fiscally at least, and I would rather have seen a single payer, government model instead of this train wreck.

True enough.
Apparently the taxpayer has to serve as an employment agency for insurance salesmen, as well as defense contractors and the high school grads that can't find a job out of the military.

Hey, WE'RE the job creators, not the plutocracy on Wall Street.

The debate has started again as to whether the US Constitution should be amended in order to change the presidential election process. Some promote
eliminating the Electoral College in favor of a direct popular vote for president while others believe the Electoral College should remain unchanged. Just as compromise solved the initial problems of the framers so it is that compromise can solve this problem. The solution is to change the electoral votes to electoral points and reward each candidate a percentage of points based on the percentage of popular votes received in each state.

This would eliminate the "winner take all" system thus allowing for all the votes to count. A voter is more apt to believe their vote counted when a percentage of popular votes are taken into account rather than the "all or nothing" system currently in existence. Further, this new system would integrate the desire for a popular vote for president with the need for the individual states to determine who actually gets elected.

As for political primaries the number of delegates awarded in each state should be determined by the percentage of votes won by each candidate.

For 2016 multiplying the percentage of votes each candidate received {in each state} times the number of electoral votes {in each state} results in the following: Clinton 256.985 and Trump 253.482.
