    Ted Cruz Amendment To Repeal Obamacare Fails

    The Senate on Friday rejected an effort by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to repeal Obamacare, an outcome that was expected but is far from the last attempt by Republicans to dismantle President Barack Obama's signature accomplishment.
    Cruz's amendment to the Democratic budget resolution failed 45 to 54. Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) voted "no" with the Democrats.

    The amendment sought to “establish a deficit-neutral reserve fund to provide for the repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.”

    ...or because it doesn't actually lower costs of providing care OR coverage and instead relies on non-existent tax revenues and "savings" from defunding Medicare.

    But hey!! It's TOTALLY worth even more debt spending to demand that people buy health insurance.

    That's right. Obamacare is designed to fail and it's going to do just that.

    Haha ohh please explain. Why pass a bill that is designed to fail. Are we getting into some conspiracy mumbo jumbo? Just admit it some of the right still dont accept that fact that the ACA is constitutional, and still believe in the draconian bull**** such as the death panels, that the gov is taking over healthcare, that its "socialist", oh and its "designed to fail".

    That's why all the real pain purposely isn't going to kick in until 2014, AFTER the election. If it's this wonderful utopia that regressives like you actually believe, they wouldn't have delayed implementation.

    Study: Obamacare threatens 3.2 million small business jobs | WashingtonExaminer.com

    Over one-third of the 9.1 million full-time jobs among America's diverse business franchises could be cut back or eliminated by Obamacare as small businesses struggle to maintain profitability while coughing up money to pay for Washington-mandated health care coverage, according to the International Franchise Association.

    The threat of hitting 3.2 million full-time workers as the Affordable Care Act takes effect next year is prompting the owners of fast food restaurants, service companies and other franchises to urge Congress to make significant changes in Obamacare.
    Even the NYT is finally reporting what a disaster this is. They knew this before Democrats rammed it through with shady reconciliation tactics against the will of the public, but they are far left wing biased propaganda outlet. This is always how the authoritarian tyrants on the left sell their snake oil. They "care" more than anyone else. "Free HC for all". If you don't believe in UHC you want little kids to die, ect.

    THE CHALLENGE The company is one of thousands of small businesses that employ more than 50 full-time employees and thus will be required to offer health insurance to their workers — or pay into a government fund — beginning Jan. 1. Rachel Shein and Steve Pilarski, the married owners of the bakery, which employs 95 people, estimate this could cost their business up to $108,000, and they are weighing their options as the date approaches. “Our revenues are about $8 million, but the food business is a low-margin industry so cutting $108,000 out of our profits, which are just over $200,000, is a big deal,” said Ms. Shein, who is the chief executive. They are evaluating different ways to comply with the new law and finance the expense.

    Idiotic utopians never believe their centrally planned schemes will fail. Rationing costs and care is going to happen. Those are just the facts. Not our problem your radical ideology won't accept reality.
