On a MSN poll, 57% of voters have said that the entire Obamacare law should be striken down. Over 340,000 have voted and clearly the sentiment is against the law. But then, when did politicians ever listen to the people?
Who cares what Billy Bob and Vern thinks.
Actually the poll is not accurate. Obamacare as a whole is very well received. All people hear is the individual mandate and that's the only thing people are against.
I'm guessing they feel the same way about you.
Besides MSN is a left leaning operation, why wouldn't they be more supportive?
Paul, do I detect a bit of prejudice against us Southerns?
Yes, and it is just now starting to kick in, where people can see and realize the benefits......
5 to 4 was the vote for Citizens United too, though...it's a Tea Bag Court.
I just feel bad for Americans...they are ruled by such baffoons! Not governed, RULED.
I just want my healthcare to be affordable again, like it was before Obama made it "affordable," which turned out to be some kind of secret government euphemism for "more expensive."
Since the bill was supposed to save the average family $2,500 a year I figure I'm owed about $10,000 in back savings right now.
Be careful for what you wish for.
"Obama Care" started out as a single payer system which the GOP pols, and some Dems, decried as "Socialism." To placate the foes of the single payer system, the current law of mandated private insurance was proposed and voted into law.
Should the law be struck down by the Supreme Court, that means that the single payer system, which most agree is constitutional, would be the framework for the next proposal.
The healthcare issue is not going away, and the need to pay for it isn't going away either -- no matter what the Supreme Court decides.
No, single payer was never even proposed by the Obama administration. There was talk of a public option for awhile, but that was as close as we ever got.
The funny thing is that I was under the (apparently naive) assumption that the public option was the core of the bill, and I wasn't overly opposed to it, though it needed some work as it was riddled with loopholes that could have allowed companies to funnel high-risk individuals into it. Putting the sickest people in the country on the backs of the taxpayers was NOT going to help the deficit.
But now that it's gone I'm honestly a bit flabbergasted that there's still so much push behind the bill. Seems like all we have to look forward to are higher premiums and the mandate.
So all of those evil, profit-hungry insurance companies are demanding more money AND they're about to get more customers? Yeah, that'll teach 'em.

What exactly is "Obamacare" and when does the law go into effect?

For me, U.S. House majority leader Eric Cantor made the best lie on Morning Joe (6/29/2012). Cantor said that the law takes away your healthcare policy and replaces it with one dictated by Washington. NBC’s Tom Brokaw immediately challenged that. Brokaw said that the law states that you can keep...
