    Is Obama-care here to stay?

    What do you think? I think it's here to stay, there will be revisions just like other social programs which became law. The fear of the unknown is always scary. Once it kicks in, people will begin to love it. That's what conservatives fear the most.

    It's here to stay.

    I think it will be eroded over time by delays, lack of funding, and court challenges. I do not think it will ever be outright repealed and the good (or at least, non-threatening) parts of it such as allowing adults to stay on their parents plan until they are 26 will be here to stay.

    I modify my selection to read; "It will be killed by the Democrats."

    It will evolve and be modified into an even more truely spectacular mess as more "great ideas" are appended to or woven into it. Once federal gov't control is established, over anything, it will simply not go away.

    Not a chance of that happening.

    I certainly hope it dies. All it's done so far is made pretty much everyone's premiums go up, despite the endless promises we were given that it wouldn't. If we were getting some kind of extra services for that extra money, I could possibly understand, but we're not. I hope we dismantle it piece by piece.

    my guess is that it's going to be so ineffective at solving the problem that we'll transition into single payer via a public option. it will probably take at least a decade of failure, though.

    once corporations figure out that single payer means they don't have to provide coverage, they'll lobby to get it done. hopefully, they'll be able to out-lobby the health insurance cartel.

    Is Obamacare here to stay? Hell I hope not. My husband a few years my senior just reached Medicare age. From his previous coverage to what Obama thinks he deserves increased not only our insurance premiums but today he filled his prescriptions and under Medicare part B which he is paying for increased the amount of his prescriptions by 120%. What an f-ing scam!!! No wonder so many are wanting to be void of this absolute friggen brain fart!!!!!

    Having to provide healthcare coverage is a noose upon American business. They have to offer it partly due to competitive reasons, but you're right that a single payer system would be preferable to corporate American then the current system.

    I don't believe this claim is accurate. Can you provide anything that confirms this? I have heard that in some states some premiums will go up but in the majority of states they will go down from several sources. Thanks.
