I'd just note here that Fox spins one way, indeed....but the link there is the literal, no hiding it (the heading says so, right there...lol) talking points of the Democratic Political Party and Leadership on the Obamacare bill.

I'm not saying what they put together there is wrong....but incomplete goes without saying. There is absolutely no way I can believe that over 2,000 pages of mind numbing legalese can be summarized with even passing accuracy in 14 pages of dumbed down, happy talk PDF.

So far, this law which is still unfolding like a rotten onion, seems to have enough to see BOTH sides being right at the same time.

Whoever thought passing this was a good......err...Oh yeah, Pelosi thought so, didn't she? She's the one who stood there and told the nation we had to pass this 2,000 page pile of political garbage just to see what was in it. Well... We've seen whats in it. It does something for everyone, and it does something *TO* everyone, We won't know if we're coming or going. Repealing it is the only way to start fresh and maybe do something GOOD for a change.

And there lies the problem.

Part timers with assets may not be able to "qualify"
for Medicaid.

And even if Medicaid standards are loosened up,
the taxpayers still pay.

That's why we are seeing more and more reductions
of hours and wages.

If the companies get everybody down below "full time",
they are off the hook I think.

The biggest reason to end it before it begins is to prevent anyone from having a chance to see how good it is for people.

Just a tip... When insurance companies and the country's shadiest greedy people fight against a system that would make healthcare affordable to everyone and stop the practice of denying coverage to those with pre-existing conditions, it only takes a little clarity to see which side of the fight compassionate selfless people should be on.

I don't suppose it's possible for you to start a list ?

Many would like to know exactly "how good it is for people".

A point by point analysis would be great !

1. It Represents the End of Limited Government.

Heavy on lizard brained rhetoric - light on substantiated fact.


2. Its Price Tag is Already Ballooning. ........The Congressional Budget Office is now saying that the first full decade of Obamacare is going to cost about $1.8 trillion , or double the original estimate used to sell the program.


Debunked BS...even the CONSERVATIVE Frobes Magazine couldn't swallow that lie...
Anti-Obamacare Forces Introduce Their Latest Effort To Mislead The Public

3. Obamacare Won't Make Us Healthier. Health insurance isn't the same thing as health.


Well this is just dumb. Every study that has ever been conducted ...as well as anyone with an operating brain....agrees. If you identify and treat diseases earlier with preventitive care, you are exponentially healthier throughout your life AND your care costs less money. Why not ask a diabetic that waited until amputations were neccessary. Geez, this claim justs fall under the "dumb" category. Health inurance sure as SH*& saves lives and makes people healthier.

Lets see what the SCOTUS comes up with...for the GOP it is a lose-lose. If the Mandate fails then private insurers will demand that they no longer cover pre-existing conditions, college kids on thier parents policy etc. etc...AND while the public might not favor a mandate, they overwhelmingly favor the pre-existing conditions coverage and kids etc...which means to let the insurance companies off the hook...wait for it...expanded medicare...only way absent a mandate and if the GOP fought it they would lose and the public and democrats would hammer them silly...GOP taking away coverage to pre-existing condition patients and your college kids that just graduated. They will get hammered...they will agree to expanded Medicare.

Lose - Lose for the GOP. Chess not checkers
