    Hey Pagan,

    What if BO had signed a bill calling for the forced sterilization of all US residents and the closure of all maternity wards and called it health care reform because with no new births, eventually there would be no one to get sick and no one not covered by health insurance? Then there would be no new incidents like those you continually cite.

    Obamacare is almost as bad as that. It SAYS it has made things better, but that is a lie.

    If I were a member of the Supreme Court I might think of sitting this state of the union out based on the unpresidented and humilitating dress down they got last year from chief forked tongue.

    Oh please no... no more Obamacare lectures from the chosen one. 2010 was drenched with Obamacare propaganda and we don't need to start 2011 the same way. Why doesn't the man get the hint that NO ONE CARES about Obamacare!!! It jobs jobs jobs!!!! Holy cow get a clue for once.

    Funny thing about those polls showing a change in attitude - there's a 5 point swing in Democrats vs. Republicans polled. Hm, 5% fewer Republicans, 5% more Democrats, and strangely enough, now more people are in favor of the law, according to the poll. Amazing how that happened...

    There's a lot Congress might do to improve healthcare in this country. The new healthcare law wasn't one of them. I also find it amusing how Obama is now willing to be "bi-partisan", as opposed to the old days when he told the Republicans to sit down, shut up, and get out of the way while he and the Democrat Congress did whatever the heck they wanted. See how well that worked out for the Democrats?

    So, we should go back to the way things were?

    How about adding to the national debt?

    'In a letter to Boehner, budget office director Douglas Elmendorf estimated repeal would increase the deficit by $230 billion from 2012 to 2021...'

    So to repeal Obamacare would 1) Once again allow insurance companies to drop you and 2) Add $230 billion to national debt.

    Sorry, but I don't see the purpose of repealing something...

    when a solution has not been presented.
