Sorry, broad popular support never existed for Obamacare, this law was pushed through by the Democrats and in speedy fashion to avoid wide open debate. It was broken down into pieces when it became evident the plan would exceed cost projections.<quoted text>
Leadership is in moving the 'public support' not in following it. And your paranoia is just more right wing denial. There WILL be an increase in costs of the PROGRAM but a decrease in costs of lost wages and hours. The US has about 110 preventable deaths per 100,000 while Canada with universal health care has 77. That is a LOT of lost productivity to the US. The balance is probably positive for the US in overall economics. The MAIN incentive is that health costs tend to be lowered by universal health care. The 13% of the public that is currently under health care add to the costs, BUT the costs may be reduced by up to 30% or so by the lack of paperwork to handle cost accounting (from competing programs).
Please provide some backup to this idiotic claim. Republicans have introduce a 'repeal' bill in the House where they are a majority 37 times or more, yet cannot get it to pass. This means that a number of REPUBLICANS are supporting the Obamacare in defiance of their party! Business understands that 'sick days' and having to replace workers who get sick for lack of simple medications costs THEM a lot every year.
Yah, yah. You let me know when you have your brain in gear and are willing to DISCUSS the subject. And to leave you with some substance, here is the US Steel workers report on Canadian Medicare and how much it saves in dollars and how much it saves in lives. Not only business but the unions know that universal health coverage is necessary to a thriving economy as unhealthy workers don't produce as much.
If the bill was so good, it would have sold itself.
