    It was there. Definitely in the first version (H.R. 3200, I believe).

    The premise that the Fed can mandate a personal responsibility to buy insurance based on the interstate commerce clause is FALSE.
    The "Fed?"

    As for whether they can do this, I think they probably can. But it won't be a slam dunk in court. We'll see.

    The republicans should have chosen to participate in the crafting of the bill rather than their strategy of "just say no" to "break him". Better yet, they should have initiated health care reform when they were in control. No one is starting over nor is the bill ever going to get repealed. This is a landmark piece of legislation that is substantially irreversable, which is not to say it can not be tweaked.

    Face it, the Repubs gambled and lost. They failed in their duty as elected officials, sacrificing the opportunity to temper the bill consistent with their core beliefs for the opportunity to do the only thing it seems to know how to do: get elected (BTW, it ain't doing so well at that either.) If the Republicans ever intend to return to political relevance then they must recognize that its time for them to start telling us what they are going to do FOR America (and not just cut taxes and reduce government... that is not a vision)

    The 'Do Nothing' party will probably not do anything.

    I decided to bump this poll seeing how there is another news story on the issue instead of just making another poll.

    Well what are they going to replace it with?

    In 2000 reducing health costs through private insurance was a part of the Republican platform. That plan did not quite work out IMHO.

    Re: If republicans get a significant majority will they repeal Obama health care refo

    I didnt read all this thread but i will so "sorries" in advance for things i missed


    It definitely wont be "repealed" in my opinion.
    Most reps when asked say they agree with 70+% of the bill so no reason to repeal it. They will go for changes to be made, amendments etc but no repeal. They may run their campaign on repeal but thats about it IMO

    Also not only agreeing with 70+% makes an repeal unlikely but I dont think anybody smart thinks healthcare was fine and didnt need reformed. People just arent sure if THIS is the right reform or most simply just dont know what the bill actually did. Some think it covers illegals, some think its "government ran" some actually think there will be death panels some dont like the abortion verbiage etc

    Remove the CON requirements that a lot of states have would probably help lower medical costs.

    Hopefully it will be declared Unconstitutional before the GOP can cut it down

    why would that ever happen? how is it unconstitutional and like I said I doubt the GOP will be cutting anything down because most agree with 70+ or it

    popularity is not the same as being constitutional. sadly dem justices in the 1930's forgot that fact.

    If you were right-Roe v Wade was wrong since most states banned abortion
