    Obama was reelected, and the ACA will stay. I would like to see the GOP start working to address the flaws in Obamacare since replacing it with RomneyCare is out( not that I was looking forward to that option either).

    What do you think are the odds that they will work to amend it and stop wasting time and tax payer money trying to scrap it? Also, thoughts on what the 1st change to the ACA should be?

    The Republicans are already worried about the mid-term elections. They can't be seen as working WITH the President....

    There are PROBLEMS with the ACA? :confused:

    You all were jumping for joy when it passed. Tell us what's wrong with it.

    It doesn't do enough to bring down costs.

    So let's revisit the idea of a public option.

    That's not what Obama said. That's not what Nancy Pelosi said.

    Are you calling them liars?

    Don't expect to hear much in the way of honest feedback. All you'll get from the herd on this site is that the mandate is unconstitutional and needs to go. The rest of it.......they like but would never admit it because their overlords wont allow them to say it.

    The laws can be repealed in '16.

    Your man Harry Reid will hopefully do us the favor of changing filibuster procedure so we don't have to.

    You see, he would get away with changing the filibuster without the media blinking an eye. When the Republicans do it, you will be outraged.

    The government shoul just take the industry over completely, conscript doctors and give all forms of healthcare for free.

    That's rich.... I thought it was a brilliant, masterful piece of legislation?

    It's bringing down costs, just not nearly enough.

    And if it makes you feel better to call Pelosi or Obama or anyone else a liar to prove some sort of point that makes you feel better than that's fine.

    Let me know when you're ready to talk about the issues and not focus on trying to make the other team look stupid.
