    Expecting truth from republicans is like expecting wisdom from a fool, you will look far more foolish.

    HOW about THESE MYTHS!!!
    1) There are 53.8 million "uninsured"!
    53.8 million Census says are "uninsured".. RIGHT...

    The following millions are counted as part of the 53.8 million "UNINSURED"!
    9.6 million that the census says are NOT CITIZENS!!!
    9.0 million people already covered under Medicaid
    5.4 million kids eligible for SCHIP but not registered
    18 million people under 34 refused employer health insurance
    42 million supposedly are NOT insured BUT THEY ARE!!!!

    That leaves less then 12 million UNINSURED!!!!

    MYTHS...
    Defensive medicine costs only mean malpractice insurance premiums!
    WRONG!!!
    90% of physicians say of every $4 spent on health care $1 is spent defensively i.e. FEAR of being sued!
    This means over $600 billion a year just because physicians fear being sued will call for MRIs, additional tests, specialists etc... all out of fear of being sued!
    That was NOT included in Obamacare!

    The only lie is "vote for me and I'll get rid of it". Although garnering votes based on that lie is wrong, it doesn't put Democrats in any better light to know that they passed a massively horrible bill that is almost impossible to get rid of. Other than that, all of the bad aspects of the bill that Republicans talk about are, for the most part, true.

    It has been raising premiums
    It will cause employers to drop insurance for their employees
    It will add to the deficit
    There is an annual limit on care
    ect.
    ect.

    When did that minor difficulty ever stop Obama?

    Where does the law give the Administration authority to gran exemptions? The Constitution specifically bars the government from applying the law unequally.

    I would hope it's a rare person who confuses their campaign bluster with actual policy options; U.S. Government is still part of the curriculum in high schools, I think.
