    even if reps get the senate they will never have 65 votes to overcome a filibuster. i say 65 because some reps will break ranks

    Actually the Way I understand it, Obamacare has been declared a TAX

    A Tax measure in Congress does not fall under the filibuster rule, so 60 votes is all that will be needed in the Senate...... at least that is the way I understand it.

    I think Roberts in his own way has led the way to an easy repeal....lol....

    ObamaCare has had it's DNR withdrawn. But it's still as good as dead.

    Can't be repealed?? I doubt it.

    This clusterfuck was jammed down our throats by the Dems. Loads of Americans didn't want it and still don't. This is now another tax where those that have are supporting those that have not.

    Its now a tax and taxes are repealed all the time.

    Well when we inevitably see costs skyrocket the people celebrating now will say "See? We told you that what we really needed was a single-payer health care system." Then Obamacare will be replaced with that, which was, of course, the point all along.

    Those for the measure and those against the measure can easily be separated by two trains of thought..

    A) Those that have no problem with costs as long as they don't have to pay them personally..and debt is something that happens later.
    B) Those that have a problem with the government taking money out of their paycheck before they even get it - and use that money to support an ever growing population of people who did nothing for it - and firmly believe that it is their right to receive it.

    The only ones that will break ranks are the dems that want to retain their seats. Your assertion is absurd.

    Acccording to current senate rules, tax issues cannot be fillibustered.

    Thus. the GOP need not have 60+ votes in the senate to repeal Obamacare, since it is a tax isssue.

    Like Income Tax and the Department of (Public) Education, ObamaCare is here to stay
