Well the PPACA (a.k.a. ObamaCare) was passed and signed in 2009.
That is the relevant point. Period.
The fact you don't like Obama (neither do I) has nothing to do with the merits or faults of the plan.
America elected the Democrats in 2008 in large part to enact a national health act. They did.
Partisan bickering has to stop in America if the country wants to avoid slipping further into the problems it is making for itself.
no, it was actually not ready to be signed, and was in fact signed, in 2010.
nitpick aside....it's not the country making problems for itself...not entirely anyway....it's the federal government making problems for the
american people, by exceeding their legal authority, under the constitution. and the people allow this...either because they don't know any better,
or don't care, or think that this is how it's supposed to work...it is partially our fault....but it's mostly the federal government's fault...
they're helping themselves, and their corporate friends, to more of our money..and instead of getting mad, and making something of it, the american
people, for the most part, are content to sit back and let it happen, because they don't think they have any power....they've become stupid, lazy,
as long as these conditions exist, things will get progressively worse, until we do live in one of those dystopias from the books, and even then,
people will think it's normal, and ok....
we're so screwed....
