INCREDIBLE hypocrisy, given the fact that Republicans have done more than anyone else, even Dems, to make our healthcare the most expensive in the world. Their party is completely dependent on healthcare-industry money.

hasn't stopped them from pretending that "Obamacare" will cause "massive increases in spending," either, although that's purely speculative.

One way to cut prices, perhaps the ONLY way: a single-payer system where the government acts to regulate prices and keep them affordable. It's what other civilized countries do, why can't we?

"The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office recently revised downward the total estimated net cost of the law over 10 years, from $1.13 trillion to $1.083 trillion. The CBO has also projected the law would yield around $200 billion in deficit reduction over the next decade, and said that repealing it would add costs to taxpayers over the same term."

You'd think a headline like fact check would actually fact check, yet, all the article does is repeat the RNC ad while burying the actual facts.

So, who needs the RNC when you have ABC?!!??!?

Health Care if allowed to pass by in the Supreme Court will cost all of us. Already I am paying 3K more than before, Obama is a liar. Plain and simple. Pull your heads out of your arses and take a look around. Most companies will pay the penalty and allow health care to be a government problem. Meaning everyone will pay for this, including the 67% who do not want it.

Obamacare sucks. It needs to be repealed, struck down, overturned and/or whatever the legal term is.

Easy people, we'll just make the 'rich' pay more. Besides adding another 25 million to the free health care rolls won't affect the working people.

Why should we be the only country in the world with cheap gas and yet have to pay for basic health care?

Gas isn't cheap and our Country is not responsible for everyones insurance. I don't have any and don't expect anyone else to pay for it.

Trust me, with obama in charge, gas is now cheap. He won't rest until we are 'europeanised'. One world order.
