    Once again the Republicans try to "throw the baby out with the bath water". There are a lot of things in the health care reform law that are good (pre-existing conditions, etc.). If there are areas in the bill with which the Republicans disagree, they should try to amend THOSE areas and leave the good things alone.

    So repealing Obamacare will 1) once again allow you to be dropped from your insurance and 2) Add another $230 billion to the national debt.

    Sorry, I don't see why anyone would support repealing this healthcare reform for Americans.

    Nothing is being offered in it's place.
