Funny thing is, while you all are slamming Huntsman, Governor Romney actually agrees with Huntsman on this.

Perhaps you can explain what you mean by "simple minded stereo-types"?? If you disagree with the points I make that's fine but I expect you to reply to my points with concrete rebuttals and not childish name calling. The points I made stand ...unless you would like to try to rebut them. As as I said in my post it is a FACT that people are losing their insurance + seeing their premiums dramatically increase via the exchanges + being cut to 27 hours by their employer + seeing companies refusing to expand and hire and all of this due to the ugliness that Obamacare has created. Nancy Pelosi once said we need to pass the law before we know what's in it. Well people are finally finding out what's in it and I suspect that is why there is a growing list of people receiving Obama-granted exemptions from this train wreck. Now of course all those getting off the Obamacare hook are members of congress and big business who contributed to Barack's campaign. Perhaps you 'should' be asking yourself why so many want exemption from the law if it supposed to be so great.

re:LDS Liberal

Actually congress does control the purse strings for the federal budget and this was done by our founders to protect the nation from a rouge president who attempted to rule as a king and ignore the constitution and branches of government and their their elected representatives. Who does this sound like... the rouge I mean? Any guesses??

My opinion is that we should outlaw insurance companies and watch what happens to health care costs. We pay the most in health care costs in the world and are given middle of the pack service. Here's an alternative. Have 20% of pay withheld from each paycheck that can only be used for healthcare. At the end of the year whatever is left, if any, would be split. Half would go into a non-government retirement account and half would be able to be spent however, including carrying over to the next year. Anything short could be used out of the following 2 to 3 years up to half of the 20%.

With Obama, politics and control are central. Truth is secondary unless it fits his purposes. After all, he was trained as a child in the Muslim world, and as an adult, in Chicago.

We have elected ourselves a dilemna.

I can now go on in the internet and purchase health insurance. I can compare costs and purchase a policy that is best suitable for my needs or my family. I don't have to worry about whether my employer offers benefits or loosing my coverage if I face a catastrophic illness. I can't be denied coverage due to a pre-existing condition. My coverage can continue from employer to employer and even unemployment. This whole health exchange idea was originally proposed by conservative republicans in the nineties. Sounds terrible to me. How do I opt out?


Sounds kind of reasonable, no wonder Huntsman was the only Republican candidate who never got any traction in 2012.
