I also wonder how Domacrat supporters feel about the fact that not a single one of their representative tried to be a part of shaping this legislation.
Between ACA and the AHA it's pretty clear that purely partisan laws only serve to hurt the American people. But our leaders keep doubling down on them with no end in sight.
It's time our elected leaders grow up a little bit and check the ego at the door.
This is a two way street and easily the most hardcore display of partisan politics to date.

Surely you are also referring to the Republican's (and their supporters who backed them) that fought Obama on EVERY piece of legislation (no matter what). Just wanted to make sure you were being accurately inclusive in your statement.

I really hate Obamacare, but this isn't an improvement. Government shouldn't be involved in the healthcare business. All they are going to do is screw things up just like everything else they touch.
Bureaucrats make poor businessmen.

I don't see why many are so upset.
The House GOP just replaced Obamacare with their own version of Obamacare.
It's still Obamacare, just with GOP doing it instead of democrats.

Further, every right, enumerated or unenumerated depends on our collective agreement that something is a right and that we agree to protect it by will or by law.
Well, okay so health care isn't a right because it requires someone else.
like, freedom of speech. I have that right. I dont need people to help me speak, its my voice, my desires.
if healthcare is a right, it means someone else must be forced to attend to you..when you have to force others to do a job then that no longer is a right.
I see it however as a necessary entitlement though. something core to the foundation..like a road..hell, it is a road of taxable healthy employees. Some entitlements are excessive, others are critical to a functioning society. HC lands on the critical spectrum imo.
