    When you see the pool of potential doctors for your mom dry up and are forced to settle for long wait times for an assembly line clinic while your taxes run through the roof you will realize what a piece of garbage you have hung your hopes on.

    And know, the public knows the rhetoric, the misinformation, and fear the unknown. This is not unusual.
    The public did not want this at the time it was rammed down our throats. The Obama Administration [aka The Bully Pulpit] and the Democrats in Congress have had well over three years to sell this pig, but still no sale. You are refusing to acknowledge the obvious, this was a perversion of democratic government.

    All the more reason to acknowledge the illegitimacy of Obamacare.

    No,it isn't. We don't directly vote on things. We elect representatives. If we don't like what they do, we elect new ones. How'd that election go?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Nothing he did makes us socialist. There is no logic in what you wrote above.

    Not Obama. Not enough to reverse the law. Explain that.

    No, it wasn't. That's factually incorrect.
