    I say no. I think a lot of these politicians say one thing and do another for votes.
    I say no, but they will use this hot button topic to get themselves back into power, at which point they will do nothing but extract the money from the system the democrats created, all the while blaming the democrats. Two sides of the same coin.

    It's becoming so predictable that it's laughable, except I can't laugh, because I am disturbed at how few people realize they are being hustled by both of their parties.

    They certainly can try and repeal it; more likely they would attempt a selective repeal and hope that it never emerges from the Senate.

    Y'know for me the question is how is the government going to enforce this whole deal? Is this another prohibition of alcohol concept in the sense that it cannot possibly be enforced and will be rampant with fraud leading to it's repeal?

    Actually that part is true though.

    Probably the best comment in this thread.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    That is true. The Republicans have to use something to gain momentum going into the midterm elections or otherwise they'll lose.

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

    I'm not really sure about this since the Republicans I know are split over this. I think it would be better for the Republican party if they didn't since I think it would be very hard to pass a new Health Care reform bill. And if they repeal the act and then don't create one of their own I think that will severly hurt them politically. However, if the Republicans get a majority by campaigning that they will repeal it and they don't they probably won't stay in office to long. The Republicans would be in a tough situation in my opinion but I don't see them getting a majority... well a significant majority like the Democrats have now, in the next election.
