Add Information about Jonathan Gruber[edit]

I would not be an unbiased person if I were to write about Jonathan Gruber, but I think it is something worth including perhaps in the Criticism section. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kaendfinger (talkcontribs) 19:54, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Why? This page is about the ACA, Jonathan Gruber (economist) already has a wiki page. What do you think would be beneficial to this page? Sevenpatch (talk) 19:20, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Edit request: "Affordable Care Act" redirect[edit]

"Affordable Care Act" and "the Affordable Care Act" should redirect to this page. I typed it in several different ways only to be told that no such article existed. I finally typed in "Obamacare" and was redirected here, seeing the correct, longer title of the law. Could a savvy editor add that redirect in? I don't know how. --MattMauler (talk) 17:40, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

"Affordable Care Act" does in fact lead to this page (my mistake, sorry, may have been a spelling error). Still when "the" is added, this page does not appear. --MattMauler (talk) 17:43, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
I added the redirect using "The Affordable Care Act". --Frmorrison (talk) 23:55, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Please offer your opinion on this content that was just deleted.[edit]

  • Note: Comment from banned Grundle2600 removed.--TMCk (talk) 22:51, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
This is obviously another sockpuppet of Grundle2600 Moonboy54 (talk) 21:22, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Yep. Thus I removed his edit.--TMCk (talk) 22:51, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Source for article[edit]

This may be a good source of content to add to this article: 5 Years In, 5 Busted Predictions About Obamacare. --Frmorrison (talk) 23:52, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Removed post[edit]

I support any edit that is sourced reliably.--Wuerzele (talk) 23:19, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Removed post #2[edit]

I support an edit LIKE that but must be shortened AND be sure to archive the Yahoonews link because it is notoriously short- lived. I suggest: In February 2008, Obama said, he was going to work to lower premiums by $2,500 by the end of his first term as president. By 2012, family premiums had increased by $3,065 per family per a Kaiser Family Foundation survey. --Wuerzele (talk) 23:28, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Unwarranted deletion[edit]

Accurate, reliably sourced historical information was recently deleted in this edit, apparently based on two false beliefs stated in the edit summary. This information should be restored (possibly with a clarification of the difference between HR 3962 and the similarly named HR 3590). 2600:1006:B129:DF07:14E8:C473:9B00:7111 (talk) 21:17, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Updating Stats[edit]

I updated the intro with the correct rate. I don't think I cited everything correctly. I'm terrible, I know. >.< Myownworst (talk) 21:02, 18 April 2015 (UTC)


I don't understand. You said 'opposition' is "WP:BATTLEGROUND", but WP:BATTLEGROUND is about edit warring and trying to "win" a dispute. I wasn't edit warring, was I? --Mr. Guye (talk) 00:31, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Mr. Guye, I moved this to the Talk:Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act page where content discussions belong. --Wuerzele (talk) 15:30, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
You are rightly confused because I shouldnt have used WP:Battleground as an argument. I apologize. The rest of my edit summary (that "challenge" is more neutral than "opposition" is correct. That said, ironically you are going towards edit warring by not awaiting my reply ( definition of a discussion) per WP:BRD, and you are re-revertin( =edit warring). so if I was to re delete without awaiting your answer where would this lead us?. I think it's a disagreement of POV here. I am awaiting your reply, marking your edit in the text.--Wuerzele (talk) 15:59, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
Okay then. Reverted my edit. --Mr. Guye (talk) 20:33, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
