Actually, Obamacare was written by insurance companies for insurance companies. Insurance companies will screw over black and brown people just as fast as they will white people. They will screw over poor people faster because they can't afford lawyers.
The primary color in Obamacare is green.

I don’t know how old you are therefore how much you know about this countries race centered attitudes. It is clear you are naïve on racial issues though you may have good intentions.

Thanks to Republican legislators in old Confederate states, universal health-care won’t be so universal. Jamelle Bouie on how poor blacks got shut out.
By the time it was fully formed, the Confederacy had eleven member states: Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, and the territory that is now Oklahoma.
This, with the exception of Arkansas, is also a partial list of those states that have rejected the Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. As the New York Times points out in today’s must-read story, the direct result of this is to block millions of Americans from access to health insurance. And while Southern states don’t comprise the majority of those that aren’t expanding Medicaid, the majority of people who will suffer are poor, black, and in their borders. These are some of the most vulnerable people in the country—with terrible outcomes on most measures of well-being—and Obamacare won’t help them.
Cant take much heat when its thrown at you huh? I guess ATS nanny'd all the republicans to a point where there got used to seeing Anti-Democrat/Obama post. It is a shocker when they get criticized, but most of the time they dont because like someone ls mentioned there is like 6-7 liberals posters compared to 20-30 hardcore republican posters?
lol OP i really wonder how many "ALERTS" went to mods for your opinion. Not many people post Anti-republican stuff on ATS, its always the opposite.. since you are treading on their turf.. its boils them cause they are not used to it!
Hopefully u wont get banned, but they will sure try regardless!!!
What heat? The heat that the Democrats' only argument for any topic is "all Republicans are racist"? The only reason someone would oppose Obamacare is because the President is black and they are racist? The only reason anyone could possibly disagree with any of his policies is due to racism? Yes, I find that completely absurd.
