    Why does the right wing think they will be able to repeal the ACA?

    Both Romney and Obama support the individual mandate. So no matter who wins, you'll need a 2/3 vote in both houses to override their veto.

    In fact, I don't see why the thing is even such a big issue, considering both major candidates support it.

    That you have started such a thread illustrates repeal is not only possible - but highly likely.

    Smell the fear.

    Since it's a tax no you don't and now democrats must argue why they want to raise taxes on the middle class and young people.

    20 million people like the OP are in line for free Medicaid.

    They don't care about all that principle of freedom stuff. They are getting them some free shit from the gubmint.

    Why do you assume all of the middle class and young people are moochers? Only you get that label.
