The heart of the bill is an exact replica of Romney-care. All the rest and everything that is different is not stuff that changes what the bill is about.
There was no Democrat that truly wanted this bill. It was passed out of necessity due to the Republican blockage.
Single Payer or any bill like it, would have required 60 votes. Romney-Care with its add ons is all that was passable with 50.
I know you want to blame Dems so badly. But the fact is, without Republican blockage, we would have ended up with a much better bill.
You have to give credit (or lack there of) to both Dems and Repubs, for this bill.
As for funding, the Right latches on to the direct methods but never acknowledges the true drivers behind the savings.
Drivers such as lowering everyone's cost once 40 million people are added into the system. And eliminating all of the emergency room waste and loss.
And allowing so many Americans to be healthy, by allowing them access to a doctor and preventative care.
