    No, and if you've studied our nation's health care system at all levels - private insurance, goverment programs such as Medicare and Medicaid and tax subsidies related to health care incentives mostly for private businesses - AND you listend to the Supreme Court arguments on the health care reform law, you'd know that there is no alternative coming from Congress that fixes the problems in a meaningful way other than that which ObamaCare provides. 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.

    Yeah...there must be some confusion here...

    Your poll question is "Do you think Obamacare should be repealed?" I voted yes.

    I also said it (Obamacare) should be tossed into the dumper...now.

    My lean is conservative...yet you called me your left-winged friend.

    I think I was very clear and that the confusion is on your part.

    See the highlighted text above.

    Who says that's what everyone wants?

    It's not what I want. I want everyone who wants healthcare to pay for their own healthcare. If they choose not to pay for their healthcare then they don't get it. It's kind of like buying a car...if they want a car they can pay for it...if they don't want to pay for a car then they don't get a car. If Obamacare were about cars, then everyone would have to buy a car...and if they can't afford a car, then I would have to help them buy one.

    Maybe you're to the left of him.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Yes, I want it repealed.... but we desperately need some healthcare reform.


    Allowing interstate competition for healthcare insurance would be a nice start.
