    Romney didn't write anything - not to mention his "Romneycare" was a failure - anyone who was paying attention saw that - even Romney acknowledged it was a failure.

    Oh, also I love how you progressives are attempting to blame republicans for your failed Obamacare already - NICE!

    If a program works its all democrats - If a program fails its all republicans fault...

    Seems to be the progressive motto....

    If it even matters - I would have been opposed to Romneycare as well, but I live in Illinois and understand the Tenth Amendment.

    The federal has no grant to set up those exchanges in the first place. And perhaps because those 36 states are smart enough to realise it's all an exercise in futility and are not interested in wasting the money on something their people want gone.

    Because the states have the Constitutional power to not choose to do so. The power of the states goes both ways; the power to act, or not act. If the people of a state want a program like this, their state representatives in the state legislature will enact a program. Those states chose not to participate since the majority of their citizens didn't want to participate.

    You're the 3rd straight rightist to tap on me in a few minutes--righties are out in force with all of their anti--PPACA noise--what's it like to be against something and against the uninsured instead of being for something--what will you say when your phony outrage is proven wrong on people losing insurance ?

    Re: It's offical Obamacare enrollment is low.

    lets not forget that the Massachusetts health care plan had its own slow start.

    here is a report showing the progress of Commenwealthcare one year after implementation.

    The people whose Insurance drops them will have no choice (of Insurance, they may still choose to
    pay the fine instead of buying insurance.)
    The IRS lacks the authority to force people to pay the fine. All they can do is take it from peoples refund or send them nasty letters.

    while Romney was governor, Romney said his Care was a success--which is it with you guys--have you seen the polls on romneyCare lately--how many days does PPACA get before it is pronounced a failure??on day 43, things look even better--think Kentucky Mr. Nick..

    I happen to know people in Massachusetts that hate being forced to buy insurance.

    And the people getting refunds are the ones that thought this would be free. That refund is their actual savings plan.
