    If you remember correctly, The Supreme Court ruling affirmed the constitutionality of the ACA.

    So, basically, it is law, and there isn't anything whining repuglicans can do about it, and it's time to move onto other things, like making improvements to it instead of acting like a bunch of grade school babies running home crying to dad with the football after forfeiting the game.
    Wow, who do you think Gruber was talking about in his infamous statement?

    That was due to the oppose Obama no matter what mandate. But it had republican ideas in it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Statements like yours continue to show the problem. What is it about liberalism that creates people like you who believes they know what motivates everyone else and what everyone else believes?

    You don't get it and never will but HEALTHCARE IS A PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY AND BEST HANDLED AT THE STATE AND LOCAL LEVEL It isn't a national issue and never will be even though big govt. liberals like you want it to be. Big govt. liberals like you have now made the debt service the 4th largest budget item and soon to be in the top two. That is total ignorance

    So despite no Republicans voting in favor of Obamacare you think they were somehow responsible for it?

    Two things:
    1) your response has nothing to do with what I said.
    2) healthcare is a community problem and we can use government to handle large community problems like healthcare.

    So the democrats used ideas that had been rejected by Republicans? That certainly doesn't say much for Democrats and only serves to underline Gruber's contention about the Stupids.

    Yes.

    why did it pass? because Democrats had the majority.

    and later.

    In the SCOTUS ruling, the vote was 5 to 4 in favor of upholding the act.

    5 to 4 is a majority.

    Yes, here is a brief history of how the GOP favored and were for insuring all Americans before they were against the ACA.

    Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    this is an excerpt of facts, you'll notice that both parties have longed for health care coverage for all Americans, and this battle didn't begin with Obama's years in the White House either, this has been going on for quite some time.

    The 1993 Republican alternative, introduced by Senator John Chafee as the Health Equity and Access Reform Today Act, contained a "universal coverage" requirement with a penalty for noncompliance—an individual mandate—as well as subsidies to be used in state-based 'purchasing groups'.[54] Advocates for the 1993 bill included prominent Republicans who today oppose a mandate,
    Here is a brief history of how the Social Security Act of 1935 was signed into law, or passage of the law. Note that repugs were in the minority at that time, and had a minority when the ACA was signed into law. The 74th. congress.

    74th United States Congress - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    anyone who knows anything about civics and how our government works knows that when either party has a majority, or controls the congress, the majority rules.
