    It's anti-American in that it does not rely on free enterprise. This is because the liberal mind lacks the IQ to understand free enterprise.

    Free enterprise has left 30+ million plus people without the ability to purchase adequate health insurance. Being American doesn't mean being able to make a buck no matter what the cost, but you can feel free to believe that.

    Calm down. The old socialist system of Nixon, Kennedy and Eisenhower let me show up at the hospital anytime and receive treatment on your dime if I got shot no matter how unable to pay I was.

    At least a good honest system which demands folks pay into insurance their whole working lives will make freeloaders pay for SOMETHING.

    There is a point of being a realist. Under the old system if I was poor, never had insurance, and catch cancer from the nuclear power plant the local hospital and do any level of paperwork, they will give me treatment on YOUR DIME! Just because the socialists in the 50's 60's and 70's decided hospitals must treat everyone.

    The alternative is letting capitalism rule and allowing me to open a city of hospitals which will throw your broke butt out on the street the moment you can't pay any longer.

    The biggest problem with obamacare is that it IS obamacare.

    There's a real discussion to be had here about the flaws with the proposal. Shame the OP just wants to troll.

    No... its been found unconstitutional by two federal judges. That means this administration is supposed to stop implementing it till it goes to the SCOTUS. So, OK.... its not final.

    As for it not being the issue.... wrong. the OP asked "The single biggest problem with Obamacare."

    So I gave my opinion....

    It could be unconstitutional. Just like it may be unconstitutional for the President to in effect declare war, to force Colorado to let that river flow into virtually uninhabitable Arizona, to force my hospitals not to allow you to die in peace(Oregon!) or to force my city of hospitals to treat folks who can't pay.

    Regardless, doctors were more trouble than benefit in the time of Benjamin Franklin. Heck, I'm not sure if I wouldn't have wanted to be treated in the time of the Romans. Our founding fathers did not see the problem of healthcare costs breaking the average American.
