  1. Not exactly. I wouldn’t mind the bill so much except that it isn’t very fiscally responsible and also there is a mandate on the bill which forces people to get insurance one way or another. That part is most likely unconstitutional.

  2. Demanding everybody takes care of themselves would be the Republican position if it were not for the need to blindly oppose anything that is related to Obama.

  3. No, it’s a legitimate criticism. Significant portions of recent health insurance increases were due to Obamacare, and it hasn’t even taken effect yet. Just wait, in 5 years you’ll be lucky to see a doctor within 6 months.

  4. Government hasn’t taken over health care the insurance industry got a HUGE subsidy to force everyone to pay insurance companies. Had we had a Public Option consumers would have won a better health care system in the USA. As it stands we rank 37th on the world health care list, but people are in denila of that because they think everything in the USA is better than everywhere else. Make no mistake government did not take over health care insurance companies won a HUGE subsidy and a terrible opportunity to RIp everyone off more than they already do.

  5. No I don’t think so. If the government isn’t taking over health care, why do they need to hire 16,000 more IRS agents to enforce it and a huge new government bureaucracy to run it? Why is it going to cost 6% of our federal budget if the government isn’t going to run it? Why have the rules changed concerning what insurance companies must cover and finally, why is it going to be against the law NOT to have health insurance? I think all signs point to a government take over of health care. They are even going to subsidize it.

  6. it’s not propaganda. it’s fact. obama said that WE HAVE TO PURCHASE INSURANCE. making people buy insurance is unconstituional. i can’t believe that any red blooded, american, liberal, or conservative doesn’t think so. sad..

    just like to add- why do you think that canadians come over, people from the uk come over for health care?? it’s because their socialized healthcare isn’t working! duh.
