    It is once Obamacare gets repealed. Maybe not right away, but with healthcare in this country going down the tube, we need something better. Requiring everyone to get health insurance and still ending up having to foot the bill for a good portion of the healthcare in this country isn't going to work. Standing around doing nothing isn't going to work either. And we aren't going to just let people die because they can't pay their medical bills.

Even Justice Scalia made this point very clear. In fact, the only alternatives that have been offered up where "WE, THE PEOPLE" can make a difference and take responsibility for our own health care while also paying very little out-of-pocket for it were:

    1) The CLASS Act which was scrapped (and I predict will return in about a decade or so unless Medicare is reformed); or,

    2) The Ryan Plan which I'm not convinced with help everyone but rather would just address Medicare entitlements for a short time and harm more people who are on it now rather than fix the problem in the long-term.

    People may not like the health care mandate, but it's the only enforcement mechanism that's part of our health care system that has everyone paying into it which is what everyone wants, yet the side that came up with the idea in the first place is now fighting so hard to have removed from the law which basically puts us right back where we started.
    IMO, the "side" was the sane moderate Republicans from a few years ago, NOT todays tea-bagging conservatives...
    And to NP....you do know that man has a propensity for lying, do you not ??
    Doing a "spin" on the truth is, in my opinion, the same as lying.
    Note that I use the word "man", not left or right.

    Allowing interstate competition for healthcare insurance would be a nice start.
    That would do much. It is more likely that would raise prices more than lower them. But you're free to add that minor thing to some real reform.

    Repealing is NOT the answer....We have finally taken the first step, now we must take the second.
    Having man improve his attitude is the answer, this is difficult and takes time.

    However, more than a few of those who want it repealed want it repealed because it didn't go enough.

    Well when it comes to repealing Obama Care it looks like the members on the left in DP as usual are way out of touch on this issue. Not surprising though the members on the left are usually out of touch on every issue when the come up against the American Public.

    Well pretty much every single "fact" in that original video is a blantant lie.
    And we are out of touch because we have a different opinion than you?
