Sgt Meowenstein;1059257476]Yeah, I'm sure all unpaid ER bills, which are passed on to the tax payer, are due to illegal aliens. "Forcing" people to buy insurance is not a violation of the Constitution. Obama's people are betting that the commerce cause covers them. The SCOTUS will decide.
I just told you, $600,000 alone was due to illegal aliens in my county alone. You don't like the number so you ignore it. Obama is betting that our founders supported Federal Mandates for not buying something. You are way off base here and the only ones that will support it are the rabid liberals who want a massive central govt. and less freedom for the individual. 5-4 vote striking the bill.
Wrong, individual healthcare has nothing to do with commerce.Commerce clause.
There you go again acting like your right-wing ideology is the only thing that matters. I do believe that the gov't plays an important role in our lives. It is not just my opinion that the HC law is making things better for some Americans. It is also the opinions of those who have taken advantage of the provisions that are already in place.
Yet the polls show a large majority want it repealed. This is a local and state issue, not a Federal Issue. You are entitled to your opinion but your live for today ideology ignores history and govt. results for providing social programs.
You obviously don't care about history either and the 14.1 trillion dollar debt. Stop reading Media Matters and look at the election results of Nov. Post a poll showing that the American people support the public option and then consider the make up of that poll.I couldn't care less what Rasmussen says. Though every conservative loves to use Rasmussen, they're unreliable. When every other poll has Obama's approval numbers at or over 50%, Rasmussen has him barely breaking 45%. Anyway, I don't know why you're bringing them up. First of all, I never said that a majority of Americans support single payer. Try to pay attention. What I said is that a majority of Americans support the public option. That is a fact. Look at any poll. Even your beloved Rasmussen shows support for the public option.
Drug costs have dropped due to the Bush Part D program, you don't like it, tough, the free market works. You really don't seem to have a clue as to what personal responsibility is and the role of the govt. Too bad.BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Affordable drugs came from Bush? I guess that's why drugs are still expensive. But Bush did add a lot of money to the deficit with his unfunded plan. Ask the seniors who have received their $250 checks for prescriptions thanks to the new HC law. And what costs will come from children staying on their parents' health plans?
Obviously you don't pay for your healthcare because I certainly know that some provisions have gone into effect, my healthcare costs went up to pay for them. Sorry but you are on the wrong side of this issue and the foundation upon which this country was built.I'm out of my league? That's grand coming from someone who doesn't even know that provisions of the HC law have gone into effect. I'll tell you what, genius, get back to me when you have a clue.
Only 25 percent of people polled now support repealing the health care law, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll out Monday, compared to 46 percent on Jan. 7
Poll: Support for Health Care Repeal Drops | The Rundown News Blog | PBS NewsHour | PBSMore Americans want to keep the sweeping health care reform legislation passed last year than want to repeal it, according to a new CBS News/New York Times survey. Forty-eight percent of Americans say they want to keep the law in place, while 40 percent want to see it repealed.

No, they aren't but they are part of the problem, thus a cost that has yet to be identified by the Obama Administration. Until you address the costs how do you solve the problem. A lot of people use the ER that have insurance and thus the bills are paid. Have you bothered to check the results in MA regarding their universal program? It is an eye opener and probably why Obama isn't touting its success since Obamacare was modeled after it.Sgt Meowenstein;1059257576]I didn't ignore the numbers. But illegals aren't the only people skipping out on ER bills.
hasn't stopped you from speculating, has it?You keep confusing your opinion with fact. The decision lies with the SCOTUS.
Then cite for me a reputable poll supporting your statementYou're entitled to your opinion as well - no matter how wrong you are. A majority of Americans do not support repeal. That is complete BS.
Guess anything that disagrees with you is right wing ideology. Interesting how that ideology is more closely aligned with the Founders than yours. Name for me one country in the world where the public option has lowered costs?And you are obviously entrenched in right-wing ideology. But unfortunately for you, there is more than one way of looking at things. I already showed that the public support the public option. You just don't like the results.
If you pay for your healthcare then why shouldn't others? Why the passion to have the govt. take your money and give it to someone else? Handle it locally and eliminate the middleman.You don't know **** about me. Stop making assumptions. I pay for my HC. Care to prove me wrong? Sorry, but you are just a right-wing ideologue. I can't help you.

The only way the act isn't the government authorized destruction of an entire private industry is the inclusion of the mandate.
On the flip side, the mandate is completely unconstitutional.
So the law had an unconstitutional provision to keep it from doing something completely against the spirit of what the constitution establishs the government to be doing.
Throw the whole god damn thing out.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
What is amazing is that Obamacare was killed in its entirety in the recent District Court decision because it wasn't possible to isolate the mandate provision. The reason the mandate couldn't be isolated and excised is because Obamacare lacked a severability clause that could have saved the rest of the law. Earlier drafts of Obamacare did have a severability clause, but the ball got dropped somewhere along the line. This is what happens when laws get passed without being read.
