Oh here we Fng go. Yeah we all wanted Obamacare to go because a black president implemented it. How bout it was a sh*tstorm right out of the box. Like anything government tries to do it can't get it right. I will admit our health care system was jacked and it was in need of overhaul but with the exception of the keeping the kids insured a bit longer and pre existing conditions being covered I don't see too much good about it. My doctor even sold his practice to Methodist Health Group because he no longer could run his practice the way he needed to thanks to Obamacare. Now he is an hourly employee with minimal time spent with his patients Plus It certainly is anything but affordable. What good is saying now all these extra people have coverage when their deductibles are sky high. Also those of us who do have good insurance are getting screwed. Thankfully my employer is picking up the extra tab for the so called "Cadillac tax" but a lot of people who did have good coverage got it scaled back to a cheap plan because the employers didn't want to pay the tax. Also the individual mandate now I understand the premise that the heathy have to be in it to keep it funded for the not so healthy. But all that has really happened is that the healthy people just wound up paying the penalty instead of the extra cost of getting insurance. Not to mention forcing someone to buy something they don't want. So how about you liberals stop throwing the race card out there every time anyone disagrees with your views.
Better do away with it all, then, I guess. Blow it all up!
I have noticed ZERO change in my insurance or my healthcare since Obamacare.
I really think a lot of people who argue otherwise are just making it all up.
Because you have had no change doesn't mean there hasn't been an effect. Maybe your employer is eating the extra cost. I didn't know my employer was doing that until we just had a meeting on open enrollment. Regardless I too would rather at this point repair what Obamacare screwed up rather than scrap it and reinvent the wheel. I agree with Rand Paul that this new version is just moving the deck chairs around for the sake of saying the repealed it. The republicans have the whole show now and I am not liking what I am seeing with them so far either.
Certainly you understand how frustrating it is to see half the country talk out of their a*ses about "repealing and replacing Obamacare" when they have no idea what that means, and they blindly support something that probably won't make their out-of-pocket costs any better. So I am really at a loss as to how to explain the visceral opposition to Obamacare except that it's yet another example of peoples' visceral, unfounded opposition to Obama that's fed by the inflammatory right-wing talking heads spewing on and on about "freedom" and "lefty conspiracies" like death panels. For a lot of people, from my personal experience, that was indeed based on race, conscious or subconscious. When your other posts have to do with "coastal elitists" taking over the country or voter "fraud" (for which there is no proof on any scale large enough to sway an election), forgive me for extrapolating.
