    It’s gonna be terrific.

    Our new precedent says so.

    And he never lies. Never.

    He said they will cover everyone with insurance for all. Just like he had the biggest crowd at his inauguration ever. They are lying. Just repeal it, the free market will take care of the rich, don’t worry.

    And like Wal-Mart, insurance for all doesn’t mean affordability for all.

    And so it begins. According to the CBO, 18 million losing insurance the first year, 32 million in 10 years and doubling of premiums for everyone in ten years. If you’re not rich and/or powerful then hang on. We can hope that this will all be over for good in 4 years, if the American people wake up. I’m not optimistic about that.

    No problem at all as only Democrats were getting Obama Care, Republicans were smart enough to sign up with the ACA. Letting a few Democrats die off early will make it easier to win the next election.

    Obamacare and ACA are the same thing.

    What’s pathetic is that medical costs in the USA could be reduced by a huge percentage with very simple changes.

    For a starter, allow the import of any drug where our cost has become say, 250% greater than the average in the EU or Canada or pick your own country for the bureaucrats to examine. That kills all the single source 10,000 times higher prices for no reason drug companies in an instant.

    Oh, wait, Republicans oppose that. Because, money.

    We didn’t have people dropping dead like flies before Obamacare was passed and we won’t have people dropping dead like flies after it is repealed.

    @Jrmerm – incorrect. It has been calculated that the implementation of the ACA (AKA Obamacare, AKA Romneycare) saved 45,000 lives a year since it began. That is, for comparison purposes, roughly the number of soldiers’ lives lost in the Vietnam War, and more than are lost in car accidents (~35,000/year).
