If "they" are so concerned with our health system in America and people's ability to get health care, why is it that healthy, non-GMO foods are being made illegal? Why are the big corporate interests trying to make water a private commodity? Why are nutritional supplements being banned? Why are the big pharma companies pushing pills instead of a healthy lifestyle? Why are corporations allowed to pollute and destroy the environment?
There are many diseases that can be prevented or reversed if people eat healthier foods and get regular exercise, but the government and big business would rather push GMOs, pills and deadly cancer treatments while allowing the world to be raped and become toxic by big business.
Obviously this is not a health issue.

Sorry you don't feel like helping your fellow American's please try to find another country with a system as messed up as America's current healthcare system...Protip you can't, because most industrialized countries have done the right thing and move to universal healthcare. Get used to it.edit on 30-4-2013 by Maskander because: (no reason given)

Couple issues there...
1. The Republican who ran on the repeal platform and lost also had the stigma of having been responsible for passing a law similar to Obamacare in MA. I don't think all of us were confident in his dedication to repealing the law.
2. Again, as more Americans realize election have consequences they will (hopefully) begin to also start using their brain inside the voting booth. That may be high hopes, considering the majority of Americans have recently demonstrated a serious lack of brain activity when voting... but hey, now that consequences are beginning to reveal themselves, anything is possible.
3. You've heard my option, repeal it. That you consider the option to be untennable doesn't really change the fact that it is a viable option and is the most uniformly fair option out there. Certainly continuing down this path of expecting the haves to fully support the have nots isn't going to float forever.
