    I would certainly LOVE for that to happen, but I doubt conservatives will get the seats necessary to override a veto. I certainly hope so. Maybe some Democrats will join in when they see the rage the American people have against this legislation.

    Which parts of the bill would you have them repeal?

    So you think it will be politically popular to bring back pre-existing conditions, insurers being able to drop you once you are sick, and not allowing parents to keep their kids on their insurance until they are 26?

    You think thats a winner?

    For what it's worth, it's literally not possible for the Republicans to repeal the bill before 2012. Even if they won every single Senate seat up for grabs in 2010, they'd only have 59 seats, 8 short of what would be necessary to override Obama's veto.

    All of it. They need to completely start over with a new bill. If anything "good" is in there we can add it to the new bill.

    I agree with you that it is pretty much impossible to do it before 2012, but it may be possible if the Republicans can get some support from Democrats already in the Senate. I think if the bill becomes even more unpopular some of them will budge to save their own careers.

    Once again, do you think it will be politically popular for Republicans to bring back pre-existing conditions, allowing insurance companies to drop coverage for you for almost any reason once you become sick, and not allowing parents to insure their kids until their kids are 26?

    I am just trying to introduce a little reality here. Yes, the bill is not popular as a whole, largely because of the insurance mandate and the complexity of all of it. However, many components of the bill are very popular, so Republicans are never going to be able to repeal the whole bill. The problem for them then is that all they probably could get the political will to repeal are the components of the bill that are not popular with their constituents, but are supported by the insurance industry. Being that the GOP is pretty much bought and paid for by the insurance industry, its not like they are going to ditch the individual mandate, yet keep in place the ban on denying coverage due to preexisting conditions.

    Its a no win situation for Republicans now on this.

    So you think the GOP should just cave in and allow the Democrats to keep shredding the Constitution??
