    If republicans get a significant majority will they repeal Obama health care reform?

    Listening to some of the talk show host they seem to be under the impression that this will cost a lot of democrats their seats and somehow the republicans will repeal this. So I decided to ask ask this question-

    If republicans get a significant majority will they repeal Obama health care reform?


    I say no. I think a lot of these politicians say one thing and do another for votes.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    If enough Republicans are elected into office with the intent to overturn Obama's socialist health care reform, I believe it can and will be overturned. The taxes will start immediately, but the "benefits" of ObamaCare do not begin until 2013. So, theoretically, the country has about three years to stop socialism before the entitlements begin and it becomes too late to kill the bill. Until the entitlements actually begin, it can be overturned if enough people vote politicians into office with the intent to stop socialism.

    We can only hope that the Republicans come back get the majority. The only reason that it passed is because Obama bribed several people.

    You'll see.

    It's in the reconciliation bill. Let me see if I can find a link for ya, since I know you'll be in denial about the tax increases until you wake up one morning and realize Obama's dirty hands are in your wallet.

    They'll overturn the spending provisions but leave most of the taxes so they can blame those on the Democrats but keep the money.

    Think about it, what parts are they going to repeal?

    Being able to keep your kids on your policy until they are 26? No, it has strong support.

    The insurance exchanges? No, people will be using them.

    The ban on denying coverage because of preexisting conditions? No, that part has strong support.

    Any of the other consumer protections? Nope, not a chance as they all have strong support.

    So what are we left with? The insurance mandate. The problem there is that while it is not politically popular, the insurance companies love it. Since the Republicans are in the pocket of the insurance lobby, there is not much of a chance they will repeal that portion of the bill either. They might try to bring back the corporate welfare "Medicare Advantage" overpayments, but that probably all they will touch if they get back into power.
