Evidently the voters of the nation are a bit more split on this issue than one author's opinion at the Tribune would suggest.

So they were for it, until they were against it. That rings a bell.

Well there you go. TrumpCare.

This reminds me of those polls they conducted


"Do you support Obamacare? " "hell no!"

Do you support insurance for pre-existing conditions? - yes

Do you support kids staying on their parents' insurance? - yes

About 7 more questions like that, all yes.

But you don't support Obamacare? No!

But that IS Obamacare. - oh.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Lol is this is like a Facebook rant I saw, where the guy was saying how much he hated Obamacare and that he was happy he could get his insurance through the ACA instead.

Would you like to be drained of your hard earned dollars to subsidize people's bad decisions?

Would you like crappy coverage?

Would you like to have your hard earned dollars devalued due to incompetents in govt?

maybe it comes down to this
Those on the left feel the poor are overall good people and deserve compassion and health care
Those on the right view the poor as overall bad lazy people and get nothing and if they die, too bad.
Does this sum it up ? :-)

Not even close. And I'm not on the left or right, just sick (pun intended) of having to subsidize people's bad behaviours for some who get sick.

How is that any different than being sick of subsidizing people who get sick simply because they got old? Want to do away with Medicare?
