    I've noticed that some do not know how they benefit now and later from the health care bill. I've posted this before but here it is again --

    Consumers Guide To Health Reform - Kaiser Health News

    Implementation Timeline - Kaiser Health Reform

    If you don't like this website, there are dozens more out there. Bottom line is that the US currently enjoys being 37th in the world in quality of care while being Number One is how much we pay for it. This law will change and evolve but its a good first step toward getting good care for ALL Americans.

    How in the world can that be a bad thing?

    Its a good decision and all the American people will be better off for this one.


    Its a tax so now what we can do to make this one better is to add a public option so it becomes even better for the American people

    I just listened to an exchange between this President and George Stephanopoulos in which
    the President was getting pissed because George was calling this a tax...Obama said it was not.

    Then the Administration argues before the Judges that it is a tax....

    So which is it Mr.President. :mad:

    Kinda makes one wonder what else they are misleading us about...

    I think that's going to change as 2014 approaches and people see how the law is going to work.

    As the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) nears its second birthday, the latest Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that public opinion on the law remains evenly split (41 percent favorable, 40 percent unfavorable) with sharp divisions along partisan lines, much as it has been since the law was passed.

    Amazingly, the rw's don't seem to know that a lot of it already is in force.

    WHAT is wrong with these people that they refuse to EDUCATE themselves?

    Friggin bizarre.

    Amazingly, it has gotten less popular over time even though a lot of it is already in force.

    Why don't you keep blathering about my need for an education?

    In almost every poll taken on Obamacare it is true that a majority of people have registered disapproval. However when the followup question as to just what it was they they disliked, the overwhelming majority said IT DIDN'T GO FAR ENOUGH!!!!

    :(

    1. The US being 37th in the world is a myth that has been debunked many times over.
    2. Obamacare will not improve healthcare, it will only worsen it.
    3. How is it a bad thing? First, it won't do anything you say it will, second, it will bankrupt the country, third, it will ruin the healthcare system we have.

    How in the world can that be a good thing?
