    Obamacare

    How many of you have read the entire bill and understand it fully? Answer honestly.

    There is no bill yet, but I have read it and do understand it fully, honestly.

    Re: Obamacare

    I have read just over 280 pages of HR3200 and it's keeeeling me! Dry as dust, and since I'm not a lawyer it's taking me a while to absorb it.

    Don't waste your time. It's incomprehensible to the layman.

    Which is a problem.

    Congress should pass a law (couched in the best legalese) that requires all following laws to be couched in terms which all can understand.

    What's your point? Does your Congressman know what's in it?

    This thread smells like flamebait to me. Just saying.

    Re: Obamacare

    Random q: why do people keep calling it Obamacare? It's not like any of the bills reflects what Obama actually wants.

    fyi Re: Obamacare

    Of course I haven't read it. Who has the time?

    And I certainly don't understand much of it. I seriously doubt anybody could ,ever, even if he studied it for two or three years.

    Just about everything I have seen in it so far is BAD.

    So into the trash can it goes.
