    I have friends in England Ireland and Sweden and they never have to wait for anything... they just go to the doctor when they need to. I do remember having to wait 3 months for an MRI appointment before my knee surgery... Freedumb medicine rocks!!!

    You're dealing with people who rarely leave their couch, let alone their state and heaven forbid the country. They have no clue what the rest of the world is really like or what goes on. They swallow down everything they hear on that "#1 News Channel" and don't question it.....that would involve brain power.

    I can't speak for all who are opposed to this fiasco- only me.

    The various goals were to bend the cost curve down, reduce costs for each person, insure the entire population including the 30 million uninsured and eliminate the posiblity of being rejected from a policy while insured due to becoming sick.

    If this lie in Legislative Clothing had done these things and stopped right there, I'd be for it.

    However:

    The cost curve bent up
    Costs for each person went up
    The entire population will not be insured

    As I understand it, the possiblity of being rejected from a policy for becoming ill will be eliminated.

    The near unanimous support for this swindle among the unisured was due to the fgact that they thought this was Free Universal Coverage. This was the lie that the Big 0 never tried very hard to undo. This coverage is not free, it's not universal and it's not even comprehensive in view of the waivers now granted.

    This needs a good repealing.

    Actually it's the massive, further crippling amount that will be added to our deficit, authoritarian federal overreach into the private sector and our personal lives/decisions, THE FAILURE TO COVER EVERYONE STILL, and I could go on.

    Wake up.
