    If Obamacare makes people happy, what it will do for/to me is give the dems one more successful issue to campaign on. If it makes people unhappy what it will do for/to me is give the repoublicans something to campaign on.

    As far as healthcare ours won't change. And we've been on everything over the years and I don't see much pocketbook difference between any of the plans we have been on. I do think doctors have gotten worse, though, in that there seem to be a heck of a lot that are in it "for the money" instead of for my health. And lots that seem to want nothing more than to push drugs on me, which I hate.

    In short, no change if you have healthcare now. But this isn't about the people who have good coverage and their employers pay the bulk of it. This is about the uninsured.

    So what if you lose your job? What if you have a pre existing condition? What if they raise their prices another 191% in the next 5 years?

    With the corporate owned media and lobbyists on your side, it seems you are winning this debate, but I have another theory.

    Tom Delay started every debate from a very very far right position. That way the Dems could not even entertain their left position. They had to start in the center. So each solution was a right of center solution. That's what we are doing now to the GOP. We're suggesting socialism and so doing nothing is not an option. So we are forcing the GOP to actually admit to the problems and come up with real solutions.

    Bullshit. If you have healthcare now, you will be forced into government health care within 5 years.

    For me, what Obamacare means is I'll be taxed for the good health care plan I receive now, until I am forced into a crappier health care program, within 5 years. I'm above the poverty level now, but with Obamacare and my increased taxes, I'll be below it and eligible for government programs I administer.

    Read the fucking plan before you start shooting your stupid mouth off.

    If the dems pass this communist manifesto the way it's written today, quite simply, we're fucked.

    I just hope it's something we'll be able to ROLL BACK after obama is sent packing.

    Since Obamacare prevents health insurers from writing new policies from day one of year 1 of its institution, it means that my employer will no longer be able to seek out affordable health insurance plans for its employees. My employer will be forced to keep its plan as it is or be sucked into the government plan which may not offer what I need.

    In short, within a year or two every employer will be sucked into the government plan and we'll all get down on our knees and bow to Obama for providing us with such great coverage... well, the liberals will anyway.

    And in 75 years, Americans will be asking how the fudge we allowed ourselves to be suckered into a plan that provides so little yet is taxed so heavily... shades of Social Security all over. Yet liberals will still be preaching that Obama was the second coming of Christ.

    It'll force people to go to Cuba for superior healthcare.
