    Why Republicans want to kill Obamacare in its Infancy!

    Why are Republicans in Congress so adamant about killing the Affordable Health Care Act? Because they know that once it is fully implemented they will not be able to fool people into believing that it is a bad program.


    Republicans want to kill the Affordable Healthcare Act in its infancy because they know that once millions of Americans start to experience the benefits and realize how much better it is than what we had before, Obamacare will be with us forever. They coined the term "Obamacare" as a derogatory term, never realizing that we wouldn't take offense, but rather accept and own it as it gives Obama credit for it. Years from now, when even Republicans say "Don't mess with my Obamacare", Obama will be getting the credit for getting this country off that broken system we had before. If it hadn't been for Obama, millions would continue without healthcare insurance.

    As it is, some Republicans already like some of the provisions in Obamacare - so imagine what will happen in 2014, when it goes full bloom?

    Why Republicans want to kill Obamacare in its Infancy!


    because of the mandate, the uncertainty of the cost and there's nothing that gives any indication it will hold down healthcare costs.

    the first is absolutely correct. the second is true to the extent that the CBO first scored the cost at a little less then a billion dollars for the first 10 years but that included 4 years before it is fully implemented. once fully implemented the cost go to 1.7 billion for the first 10 years. so yes the cost seem to be an unknown. so given that the second, how can anyone say healthcare costs are going to come down.

    so explain why it's BS?

    No. Truth is they are pandering for votes, but they don't want to kill the bailout for the insurance companies, and they know they can't as things sit.

    It is smoke and mirrors pal!

    The individual mandate was the brain child of the Republicans, why do those on the right continue to ignore this fact?

    No it wasn't, it was the work in the insurance companies.

    1993, to counter Hillarycare, GOP senators introduced legislation that featured an "individual mandate", sponsored by Chafee & 20 other GOP senators, co-sponsors were: Hatch, McCain, Grassley, Bennett, they are still in the senate today. 2008, Thompson, then secretarey of HHS under Bush, and of course we all know Mitt put it into law.

    You realize the irrelevancy of your post?
