    The comments from "My2Cents" appears to be worth just about that... no more than 2 cents, especially when so many allegations are made with absolutely no facts to back them up. It boils down to his or her opinions and nothing more.

    Where do people think the funds will come from to pay for all the hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidized and free health care to so many people. It doesn't appear out of thin air, as Obama would like us all to think. It has to come from one of two sources... either from more taxes paid by American workers or from more higher federal debt which is already at an almost incomprehensible $16+ trillion (each trillion being a million million) and still growing at an alarming, unprecedented rate... even without this new healthcare burden.
    The Supreme Court recently determined Obamacare to be a new tax on the American public... the biggest is the history of our country. It's no wonder the majority are opposed to it in literally all the national polls taken about it, and why so many politicians are promising to have it repealed. It simply can't stand up under scrutiny.

    The Affordable Health Care Act is something the American people will have to adjust to and bite the bullet, pay the insurance companies or go to jail and pay a fine to the commerce department and the presidents budget.

    The Romney plan is to take trust funds and convert them to federal property and make us pay for health care control and fraud that is controlled by government departments. The SSA and its departments of health are independent of government control and this makes Romney and Utah mad.

    Romney has no intention of repealing the AHCA and its tax, his objective is to replace it with one of his own ideas of pure socialist health care. The government is out to destroy the SSA, Medicare, and Medicaid because they are trust fund (privatized) health care and retirement systems that blocks government access and keep these trust funds out of the budget. The congressmen claim that SSA, Medicare, and Medicaid are costing tax dollars to fund, but the tax dollars are the trust funds in these programs taken by IOU's from the people.

    Obama has added more then five trillion dollars to the debt.

    Just think! That is more then enough to purchase healthcare for every American, plus add thousands of jobs to the economy.

    Now I'm really mad. Where did all that money go?

    Just another reason I should stay unemployed so the Govt can take care of me. I don't want all the stresses of working 40 hours a week anymore. I like the new health insurance system.
