    1. Some people won't get to keep the coverage they like.
    2. Costs aren't going to go down.
    3. It's just a guess that the law can pay for itself.
    4. The more they know the more they'll like it isn't happening.

    Four hard truths about ObamaCare:

    1. It's unConstitutional.
    2. Nobody in their right minds wants it.
    3. It was forced on the American public because of the shady way it was passed in Congress.
    4. Even if fully implemented, there will still be uninsured people.

    This article is nonsense.

    1. People leaving their existing policies because they can get better coverage elsewhere is a negative?
    2. No one ever claimed the bill was decrease health care costs. The argument was always about decreasing the rate of growth. Since the law hasn't taken effect yet, we can't answer this question one way or the other, but results from individual states (Mass.) and countries that have undertaken similar reforms (Switzerland) look promising.
    3. That's true, but meaningless. The entire budget is guess-work.
    4. That's true, but why should anyone care? Just because an idea is unpopular doesn't make it bad policy, any more than being popular would make something good policy.

    That's an absurd argument, as your employer would have made the same decision even if the ACA had never been passed.

    The irony is that OBAMA CARE is basically the CATO institute's former concept of a good plan.

    Had a Republican POTUS proposed this plan the detractors of it would be supporting it and the supporters of it would be its detractors.

    How anybody can imagine that forcing people to BUY a product is anything but FACISM I serious don't know.

    Lets review what FASCISM is again, shall we?

    Facism is the form of government which is lead by and for the primary benefit of corporations.

    If ObamaCare doesn't fit that facsistic model, I don't know what does

    if the act wasn't passed he would have kept us insured the way he did before.

    If it is absurd then explain why he would have done this anyway....go ahead.

    How is it Ironic to you that both republicans and democrats have no issue violating the constitution for their own power and political means?

    Have you ever heard of the patriot act?

    Do you tire of being wrong? Are you a paid shill perhaps?
