A Department of Health and Human services report on the ACA’s Medicaid expansion finds that many Americans newly insured through the program often have to “wait for months or travel long distances” to get care, according to the NYT.
In all three of these reports, we see under the ACA a declining level of
access to a covered care provider. This is not what progress in health
reform looks like.
Ah, you're wrong; under Obamacare, yes, this IS what reform looks like.
Update: from a gentleman in Canada,
Who told you that Canadian health care was wonderful? Whoever they are
they lied to you. I have been waiting 18months to see an orthopaedic
surgeon about my shoulder. My GP tells me that I'm lucky it will only be

Under the Tories' new proposals, groups that cannot currently be proscribed could be subject to banning orders should ministers "reasonably believe" that they intend to incite religious or racial hatred, to threaten democracy or if there is a pressing need to protect the public from harm, either from a risk of violence, public disorder, harassment or other criminal acts.
I wouldn't trust ANY politician with this kind of power. Come ON, how many "I will now screw this group that displeased me" possibilities can you see in this shit?
