    Re: Do You Want "Obamacare" to Fail?

    As I see it...it depends.

    On the one hand, if "Obamacare" is going to cause more harm than good, I hope it fails. Unless failing causes more harm than succeeding, in which case I hope it doesn't fail.

    On the other hand, if "Obamacare" is going to do more good than harm, I hope it succeeds.

    The problem is defining what good is and what harm is, which no one is able to do.
    That, and successfully predicting the future.

    Unfortunately for republicans, they don't have anything better to replace Obamacare.

    When you put out a fire, what do you replace it with?

    Ok, I'm going to introduce legislation requiring that nobody under the age of 25 be allowed to leave their house ever (with some hardship exceptions, of course). I'm concerned about deaths from accidents and violence that impacts this demographic and this is the best course to keep them safe. My legislation, if passed, will save lives. I trust I can rely on your support?

    Because you prefer your lower standard of living, or your inferior health care? I wasn't exactly sure from this comment.

    Just so you know, I realized that I was going to have smartass examples like yours, but by that time it was too late to edit my post.

    You won't put out the fire by getting rid of ACA....but you could burn down your house.
