Then along comes healthcare reform and despite its lofty motives, something actually started negatively impacting the Obama politicallyly. A couple of dozen states take the administration to the Supreme Court over the individual mandate provision, despite the fact that idea ORIGINATED with republicans, was mostly opposed by people who had health insurance while decrying its unfairness that they should be forced to buy something they don't want.
I personally don't like Obamacare in its present form. I don't like employer-based and as a consequence employer-controlled healthcare. Although I support "healthcare," I don't like "health insurance" as all this does is create several middle men who all get their cut of our medical costs while destroying many of the market forces that would lower costs and improve quality. I'm simply being honest about how I see the GOP response to the present ACA law.
