A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
as for R&D, i've worked in that field, (product development,) and i currently work in fundamental research. they aren't going to stop innovating. we need to cut their costs, as well, as i outlined in an earlier post.
This will impact millions. the "you can keep your insurance" rhetoric was a lie. What they didnt tell you was "you can keep your insurance provided it is what WE tell you you have to have. If not, we will cancel your insurance and you will be forced to purchase our insurance exchanges under threat of penalty from the IRS."
Many people had those policies for decades. They had them, were comfortable with them, they did what they wanted them to do. But...government knows better. Now shut up and get in line and do as you are told.
