compromise with the Republicans? no. not one Republican voted for it.
Romneycare? what might work at a state level won't necessarily work nationally. Mass is a very left/democrat state; no way it's a 'conservative' plan. the conservative solution to the health care situation is reduce government controls and allow more (insurance company) competition.
Yes, ironically RomneyCare and ObamaCare are very similar pieces of legislation. Even Barack Obama himself will admit that RomneyCare was part of the model ObamaCare used to create the current health care reform laws.

The big problem is young people have opt out and paid the tax, or just blew it off completely. This has made Obamacare not only expensive, but insurance companies are dropping like flies since they are loosing money with it. The rate is at the point that people will not be able to find coverage even if they wanted it.

Obamacare (ACA) was just the left's way of pushing single payer. They knew it was a disaster, which is why they didn't allow anyone to see what was in it before they passed it. Then they nitpick stats out from ACA saying things like we insured another 20 million people, but don't mention the millions they screwed. The problem is only the idiots not paying for ACA believe all this nonsense that single payer will be great. I just wish I could get one of those credit cards the left believes in, where I can use it until it quits working and then the debt magically goes away.
The left? You mean all of Congress. Last time I checked everyone loves taxes and printing money out of thin air.

Well you do know that one size is the model. Even in Europe, Britain, the rare sicknesses are not covered well.

Under obamacare real people with real jobs had to decide to pay the mortgage or rent or pay for obamacare.
2000 deductibles when you are paying 1200 -1800 $ a month for obamacare health care.
Many companies who used to give affordable health care could not do it without going under because of the messed up disaster that was and still is obamcare.
Then, to add insult to injury, if you choose to pay your mortgage instead of enrolling in obamacare, you get fined for not doing so.
There is nothing good about about obamacare.
Unless you don't have a job, have kids and are a minority.
I said it ands it's true.
