    There were two primary reasons for Congress to pass Obamacare that I can surmise.

    1) Cover those people that didn't have health insurance

    2) Lower health insurance costs.

    This poll question asks if you agree.

    3) To either bankrupt companies writing medical policies or get them to quit doing so altogether, so that the federal gubmint becomes the "insurer of last resort", resulting in defacto socialized medical services....Which was the end game all along.

    Health care costs were out of control.

    Too many American citizens were without medical insurance.

    Too many American citizens, businesses and governments (local, state, federal, special districts) paid too much for medical care and the costs rose every year for decades.

    Too many American citizens received treatment at ER's at great cost, and many times waited too long before seeking medical treatment exacerbating their illness/injury and increasing costs.

    All persons - citizens or not - will by law receive treatment at any hospital in the nation, public or private. Once remedial care is provided, the patient treated at a private hospital will be transported to the nearest public hospital and dumped on their doorstep.

    Preventive health care provided freely to all citizens will cut down the costs of medical care in our country on an actuarial basis.

    Got news for you, Einstein. You're already paying for their treatment. Obamacare will make them step up and take personal responsibility for their own medical care.

    Um, no we're not.....Lots of uninsured pay for the medical services thet receive out-of-pocket.

    But it's much more politically expedient for the committed statist liars to treat them as potential moochers, rather than responsible people who pay their bills.

    It does not....
    We have over 40 million on food stamps. But they can afford insurance.

    Put that crack pipe down.
