    Yes, they were...and are. How many people, including, of course, our elected reps who voted the Affordable Care Act in law, have actually read all the bill? And how could they have known that what was promised probably wasn't even possible? Were there those who warned of this? (Yes.)

    Pelosi joked, but it's not funny: It's a catastrophe. What the union guys are saying, I think, to Obama is "Keep your promises." The promise was that nobody would have to switch healthcare providers.

    A majority of people that have health issues have only themselves to blame.

    High Blood pressure and type 2 diabetes is natures push back for a commitment to overindulgence

    We're not designed for a soft life.

    You just nailed the formula.

    Everyone employed, living in 600-square-foot apartments, driving a Smart Car, working 29 hours a week, and loving our Obamacare.

    The new American dream.

    Despite all the claims that ObamaCare is "socialism," in fact it is the most radical pro-corporation law in this this country in over a century. By it, not only does the insurance industry rake TRILLIONS of dollars off the top of healthcare - enforced by the IRS and federal cops - it also has eliminated the past requirements for full time employment with benefits to part=time employment with no benefits - for which the former full time employees with benefits instead are part-time employees paying annual fines for having lost their benefits.
    In return, the government now can justify refusing healthcare to anyone claiming they didn't buy insurance - and Obama can boast of creating millions of jobs by companies replacing full time employees with benefits with a much, much cheap workforce of part-times with no benefits and not pensions.

    Obama is a socialist - but he is a corporate-socialist, not a social socialist. It is the difference between night and day, diametric opposites. Never, ever could corporate America hope for what it got in the election of Obama as no Democrat or liberal dare criticize him.

    It is refreshing to see someone else understands it.

    Union Bosses: 'ObamaCare Will Destroy Health of Americans

    Unions supported it, now the stupid ass, short-sighted union bosses see it is going to hurt their bottom line and they're against it. Gee, there's a shocker!

    Why don't they man up and take their lumps, since it's something they support? :dunno:

    In fact, maybe they should make Obamacare requirements apply to unions exclusively.

    In this age of easy information, it's really hard to tolerate idiots.

    Why don't they demand that the Democrats voted for repeal? If even half of them did, we'd have veto-proof majorities!

    Indeed. Corporate socialism is a thing and is just as bad as garden variety socialism, but in different ways.
