    There is nothing to negotiate. The Teabaggers now want to hold a gun to the head of the American public and try to force renegotiations? Sorry, but America doesn't play that game.
    The bolded part is irrelevant. The bill was passed through a Democrat House and Democrat Senate. Notice it was right after the Democrats were voted out of office. They pushed it through because they knew it wouldn't pass in a month and the American People did not want it.

    You should try sticking to the facts.

    maybe you need a timeline to understand how long it took to pass congress.

    Nope, I was referring to the House specifically, which if you understood context you would know, and from your own source:

    November 7, 2009 -- The House of Representatives passes a version of the sweeping health care bill by a vote of 220-215.

    My point is, it was not a bi-partisan bill, and who says bills cannot be repealed or changed? Happens all the time.

    You mean like the extremist that rammed a health care overhaul down the throats of the middle class so their over burdened system could be shared with those who don't pay for it? That extremism? I tend to believe you are way OK with extremism so long as you support it.

    That "rammed it down our throats" line never ceases to amuse. It was "rammed down our throats" by compromising the original plan to more align with right wing ideas, including basically replacing it with Romney's program in Massachusetts, and then passed by the democratically elected majority in both chambers of congress, then signed by the democratically elected president, and then upheld by the constitutionally empowered supreme court when challenged through the lawful channels available to detractors. When polled, the majority of Americans support the provisions of the law. At this point, "rammed down our throats" means whatever you don't like.
