    (Your above definition applies to a lot of self-proclaimed "Conservatives," also. But I'm sure you don't mean them...)
    Repeal it for everyone. Treat everyone the same. I realize this is a difficult concept for liberals to accept, but I urge you to try.

    Personally, I'd think that if you don't like Obamacare, you'd be in favor of as many waivers as possible. Repubs are just going back to beating their favorite whipping boy because it's popular with their anti-union base.
    no, that's not what is being argued....that's your spin and your spin alone.


    what is being argued is that Republicans don't want unions to be treated better than everyone else when it comes to the law.
    despite your argument to the contrary....not one Republican has said " let's repeal obamacare, but only for ourselves"... not one.

    now, maybe you can give us an good argument as to why unions should not be treated like everyone else under Obamacare?...what affords them special treatment?

    Do you think that it would be legal?

    I have my doubts about that.

    I sincerely hope it would be illegal.... but, to be honest, I'm not all that confident... not in todays political climate.
    too many people are shooting for special treatment under the law, and getting it.

    Re: Republicans move to halt ObamaCare 'bailout' for angry unions

    This Nation has had a labor/corporate war since before Charlie Chaplin. Chaplin was blacklisted for producing movies that made fun of repetitious and monotonous factory jobs. Since the early 1900s, the USA has subsidized Corporate and kicked labor in the teeth, metaphorically. Wars, for example, are big subsidies to the military/corporate industrial complex and big energy. Nuclear plants are totally subsidized because they are not economically feasible. Huge windmills are considered Renewable Energy so real renewable energy monies don't go to homeowners with local generation. Too big to fail banks are subsidized so the very wealthy stay wealthy. Where do the subsidy monies come from? John Q. Taxpayer, also known as, you and I. I suspect somehow this Obamacare legislation kicks labor in the teeth, but I honestly don't see how. I'm all for Obamacare because it's better to give anything to all the taxpayers instead of a few of the wealthy.

    I have to believe that something like that will end up in court and I don't believe that it would pass the smell test with most judges.

    Of course we'll have to wait and see how it turns out, but I find it hard to believe that it will ever survive a legal challenge.

    It is going to get to the point that the determining factor on who gets any Obama Care subsidies is who you voted for last election it will be required for you to be a registered democrat to get one
    Message to Republicans... grow a pair... fund all of government, but defund ObamaKare now. That'll put an end to the BS known as the Obamakare nightmare.

    Let the Demokrats howl. It's what they do best... so buy ear plugs.

    Don't you remember that the democrats control the senate and Obama is in the White House? Any bill that contains a provision for defunding obamacare is dead on arrival in the senate.
