I just posted a transcript
Where they agree
It was the Frightwing/Heritage Foundation
answer to "Hillarycare"
Your beef is with them
Not me.
Not one of them agreed with Obamacare....except Hillary Clinton, and I'm not sure she likes all of the mess that was written. Everyone likes some of it, but no one likes all of it. And 72% of the American people think that it is wrong for our country as it is written.
Now, understand one thing...I am a Democrat...a Blue Dog Democrat. I have no use for the liberal progressive bunch running the party now, so I won't vote for them or what they want. If things don't change soon I will become an Independant.

I was more referring to the 'individual mandate' that was the GOP's response to Hillarycare, but now seems to be the major bone of contention in Obamacare. I'm not really a fan, but the U.S. spends more per capita than any other nation in the world, & is the only wealthy industrialized country in the world that lacks some form of universal health care. I registered Ind in 2008 after the media decided somehow that Obama had better creds than Hillary & McCain selected Palin.

Then send Obamacare back to congress for a full debate by both houses. Allow people to actually read it, furnish them adequate information about it, and make sure that no one is given an exemption for other than religious reasons. And, above all, make sure that everyone pays their fair share.
I am against a federal mandate that forces a person to buy insurance, no matter who proposes it. And, since I do not seem to be alone in my opposition, we now see it in the SCOTUS. We know that it is only the beginning if it upheld.

At least Hillary wrote her own and knew what was in it. Obama handed his legacy to politicians and rubber-stamped it.

I also think that the 26 states that are claiming that ObamaCare is coercion are correct. Kagan claims that it is not, and her metaphor was the situation where an employer offers you ten million dollars to hire you as being the same as the Federal gov't offering to the states, on a sliding scale, to exponentially swell your Medicaid rolls. That is so not the same. What would be the same would be if that prospective employer threatened to get you fired from your current job if you didn't accept their offer.

Here in Colorado we adopted some ObamaCare policies in 2009, mostly allowing able-bodied adults without dependent children to enroll. Costs have been NINE TIMES estimates, and the Dem Senate majority and the Repub House majority here are actually working TOGETHER to try to mitigate the damage!

We can't afford to do this as a huge reallocation of wealth scheme, which is what it is. Without some sort of VAT, or consumption tax, and huge tort reforms, it is not sustainable. Heck, even the countries who have single-payer are having a lot of trouble keeping up.

Kagan is bought and paid for by Barack Husssein Obama. She is what con men call a shill...and she adores her hero president. There is no way she will ever be against anything he wants.
Obamacare will burden state budgets to the point that they have to risk either being in contempt of the law by refusing to follow it or they will have to raise state taxes to pay for it.
Obamacare is a damnable imposition upon anyone who works and pays his/her fair share.
