    Do you support Obamacare?

    Regardless of your original view, do you support Obamacare now?

    Many promises were made for legislation we couldn't know what it was until after it was passed. Everyone would be insured and have affordable medical care. The poor would have free insurance. Medical costs would go down as would insurance premiums. etc. etc.

    The reality?

    Insurance for the poor was cancelled after only 133,000 people.
    Insurance premiums have gone up from 20% to 100% for less coverage.
    High deductables make it so many people with such insurance still can not afford major medical care.
    Millions of employees have lost their employment insurance - something that could not happen prior to Obamacare.
    Millions of people have been laid off or reduced to part-time employees.
    An increasing number of doctors are refusing to accept insurance or retiring.
    The government faces long term shut down and gridlock.
    Congress had degraded to extreme militant partisanship.
    We are days away from massive national and worldwide economic collapse. Basically to destroy everything else, cause world chaos and probably millions worldwide starving to death - all to have Obamacare.
    To name a few "downsides" to Obamacare" - a title the President wants it to have.

    The Upsides as reason to keep Obamacare?
    Eliminating Obamacare would look bad for Obama
    and ???

    Seeing the unfolding real-life effects, do you support Obamacare? Or do you think it should be replaced with something else?

    Do you now support Obamacare?

    Getting ANY reform is enough for me. The rest will fall into place.

    Re: Do you support Obamacare?

    I am sick of hearing about Obamacare.









    Does Obamacare cover that???
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Eliminate the red portion and you got it right.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    I neither believe nor disbelieve.
    NO VOTE
    What the original poster states is the opposite of "fair and balanced, and this bias is so obvious.
    I do believe that only a very few are falling for this crap.
    Further-more, the ACA (forget ObamaCare) will need a major change , single payer with government insurance......
    This will really awaken the conservative-extremist.
