Response to still_one (Original post)

So CNN stirs the shit, and you show up asking for a hot bowl? BobbyDrake Oct 2016 #1
Actually the story was started by Politico, and others are picking up on it. I stand by what I said still_one Oct 2016 #2
Right, and your plan to create a "united party" is to crap on a popular ex-president? BobbyDrake Oct 2016 #5
I had a similar thought about Bill as he made the President and others wait while he was socializing monmouth4 Oct 2016 #6
For better or worse phrasing, he brought attention to single payer. MaeScott Oct 2016 #60
I agree. He can go home now and wait for the election to be over. n/t pnwmom Oct 2016 #3
We need a united party, and injecting things like this into the fray does not do us any good. While still_one Oct 2016 #8
Agree as well.......go home and STHU. a kennedy Oct 2016 #17
He knows what he is doing. Giving Hillary some daylight to win this thing! Mamajami Oct 2016 #4
Exactly. Bill is a master of the 'sister souljah' moment. /nt radius777 Oct 2016 #23
I remember a time when there were arguments against breaking up ACA Goblinmonger Oct 2016 #41
I agree with everything he said justiceischeap Oct 2016 #7
It is how he said it, not that it doesn't need to be fixed. still_one Oct 2016 #10
I still don't have a problem with how he said it justiceischeap Oct 2016 #14

Ditto! Me, too. hamsterjill Oct 2016 #25
Perhaps your assessment is right, or the media was misrepresenting this as though Bill Clinton was still_one Oct 2016 #19
Me too. OKNancy Oct 2016 #11
I could get a cheaper plan but the 10k deductible makes no sense for me justiceischeap Oct 2016 #13
Ours is a $4500 deductible, plus another 2000.00 - so total out of pocket per year is 6500.00 OKNancy Oct 2016 #15
The health profiteers make me sick and Bill rich. GeorgeGist Oct 2016 #9
Bill is not becoming rich because of this, but the health insurers sure are, and that is why the still_one Oct 2016 #12
He's not wrong, but the irony is thick.... vi5 Oct 2016 #16
It does sound like Bill is criticizing a popular president. Why not wait on this until Nov. 9. anamandujano Oct 2016 #20
That is my gripe. The ACA's deficiencies should be addressed, but not by presenting the still_one Oct 2016 #22
I think this is strategy, Bill isn't stupid. radius777 Oct 2016 #21
This is what I think too. DawgHouse Oct 2016 #108
He should shut the fuck up when telling the truth? NCTraveler Oct 2016 #24
Did he explain that Obama had to compromise with the pukes and did the best he could? anamandujano Oct 2016 #28
Yes, every time a camera is on him he has hours to explain a position. NCTraveler Oct 2016 #29
Forget the "high horse" business. He could be more diplomatic instead of divisive. anamandujano Oct 2016 #31
That was my characterization of Bill Clinton, for exactly the reason you gave, he could have used still_one Oct 2016 #37
I'm in agreement with him as well. PragmaticLiberal Oct 2016 #43
What compromise from President Obama? And in return the GOP gave him ZERO votes in favor of ACA. KeepItReal Oct 2016 #30
I'm no diplomat but how about, "This is how we're going to fix the health care problem." anamandujano Oct 2016 #35
ACA is President Obama's. It has major issues. I'm cool with Clinton stating the obvious. KeepItReal Oct 2016 #42
Things seem to be going well. Why throw a buzz saw into the works at this time? anamandujano Oct 2016 #45
It was the blue dogs, or nothing would have resulted still_one Oct 2016 #103

Bill is just pulling Hillary away from Obama and the ACA and I actually agree with him NWCorona Oct 2016 #27

Bil is speaking for me. I loathe the ACA. We need Single Payer. Auggie Oct 2016 #54
yes, but that isn't what he is saying. still_one Oct 2016 #86
He's saying the ACA is fucked-up. And it is. Auggie Oct 2016 #87
The public option, single payer or Medicare for all didn't have the votes in 2000 still_one Oct 2016 #88
You are changing the discussion Auggie Oct 2016 #92
You changed the discussion. You implied BIll Clinton was suggesting single payer, and that is still_one Oct 2016 #93

Days before 2nd debate, Bill gives Trump major talking point. tman Oct 2016 #62
NO!! He's giving Hillary a winning opening. I hope Trump takes the bait. It's wiggling on the hook Mamajami Oct 2016 #64
