    We had our chance to repeal.....unfortunately, Romney lost


    in the long run, having the disaster actually unfold might be better. the disaster that is democrat governance, must be fully revealed so that we know what's in

    and never vote for it again

    However, all those Dem's in the red states can vote for repeal, even if the President vetoes, they can go home and say that they voted to repeal it. There are voters out there who wont see through the act and vote to reelect them.

    Very correct. And add in the typical hot button issues and the anger doesn't go away but it does get disarmed from doing any real damage to the status quo.

    Insurance companies will never allow this to happen. What will they blame increased premiums on at that point.

    The option of "tweaking" has been discussed within the inner circles as well as on all the network and cable news shows with experts who know the #s. Tweaking is not an option. Allowing all who want their existing plans to keep them is not an option. Those policies have been cancelled. With all the new requirements, only way to not "blow up" the US Treasury is to get the 50-65 year olds to pay for birth control, breast pumps and maternity care and get the 18-35 year olds to pay double and triple the "retail" prices to pay for those pre-existing conditions for the older and chronically ill.

    Therefore, the only solution is to blow the program up and start over. If the bullet points of the new plan does not fit on 2 sheets of paper, it is too complicated. It needs to be market driven and the federal government needs to stay out of it.

    If they want to have one requirement, let it be that all Americans over the age of 18 have catastrophic coverage for all expenses over say $5 K. And they get a tax deduction for the expense as their employer does now.

    Totally agree. Obamacare is here to stay like it or not. People may be upset, but it's not enough to get it repealed. With any luck, there will be improvements.

    It can't be here to stay if it collapses of its own weight.

    "Market driven" doesn't work for health insurance. The demands of the market would mean letting the sickest and most expensive patients die for the sake of profit margin.

    Fred, the market works fine for health insurance. The liberal progressives just don't care for health insurance. They want to call total state maternalism as a means to replace individual responsibility for health with socialized responsibility for health and a lot of wealth redistribution in the process and just *pretend that is what insurance means*.

    After it is functioning, it will be next to impossible to throw it out and return to the way it was. The best bet is to try to change this montrosity step by step and hope we can get it to a system that it is more reasonable.
    We will pay a big price because voters wanted to feel good by voting for Obama. He certainly didn't have the qualifications to even be elected senator.

    It's amazing that the liberals have completely destroyed the health insurance market in just six weeks. Amazing.

    Obamacare is only as close to being repealed as the IRS is to levying penalties for non participation.

    Can you imagine how incensed Obama's voters will be if they cannot afford ACA premiums to start with, then have to pay precious thousands in penalties because they cannot?

    When that happens folks, poop will really be flying. So, how far off is that? It's then people will be screaming. Before though, expect a lot of excuses and proposals to "fix" the issues.

    so what you're saying is that we needed all the other crap in the 3,000 pages with all of the modifications in order to have pre-existing condition coverage?


    frankly, I'm sick and tired of hearing this garbage. Everytime the obamacare supporters talk about the bill they always throw PEC out there.....nothing but a red herring.

    you want a pre-existing condition mandate, then pass one and leave out everything else.
