    If you think signing up is bad, just wait until you see the actual health care that you will receive, or at least that the "death panels" will allow you to TRY to get.

    Remember, half of the funding for Obamacare is coming from cuts to payment to Medicare providers. How many more doctors and hospitals will simply not accept new (or even dump current) Medicare patients? No business can exist when the costs for providing a good or service exceed the payment received. If anyone thinks this is wrong, or unfair, please start a hospital and let us use it for free.

    Obamacare is intended to fail, and usher in single payer, or socialized medicine.

    If you think healthcare is expensive, hard to get, or bad now, just wait until it is free!

    one vote

    The far right as you call them, or T-party, as other do, are in power in Congress per these last two elections BECAUSE of Obamacare. If this government fails, it will be because of its own immense unmanagable size, as well as its unpayable debt. Why would anyone want to put their health care in the hands of nameless, faceless, and careless people. Look at the IRS. Try getting a consistant answer from them about taxes and then imagine getting the right answer from one of the thousands of bureaucrats who are going to decide your health care. The majority of Americans worry about this and rightfully so.

    Obama and the Democrats shut the government down. Refusing to give Obamacare waivers to anyone except their donors and themselves. All the GOP wanted was to delay the implementation so it could at least be administered fairly. Obama and the Democrats said no to fairness and the rule of law. According to polls the majority of Americans do not want Obamacare at least as it is today! I am proud of the GOP for standing up for the middle class! Did you get your waiver?

    Allright, affordable heath care will succeed and the far right will fail, again. No need to talk nice when you have people trying to bring down government by subversive tactics. "Shuter down" advocates should get what they deserve.
