The "controversy" is manufactured by a lazy, complicit right wing press that runs the roost in America.

Time to ignore it and obey the law. This is the first step toward socialized, single payer health coverage for all.

We could have skipped this market based first step if we didn't have to fight the Republican Fascist Right wing run health insurers.

But we'll take what we can get at this point, and force competition on the Reich from government run single payer when the time comes.

Only 30 more years until the Frightwing claims the ACA to be their idea from inception, from the Heritage Foundation outline to the RomneyCare pilot program in MA.

"A law not repealed continues in force, not because it cannot be repealed, but because it is not repealed; and the non repealing passes for consent." – Thomas Paine, Rights of Man

Just as I said after it was passed. This atrocious law that does nothing but make the big insurance companies bigger will never get repealed.

At best what would happen is that the Republicans would modify it and then call it their own. Just like the Democrats did with the Patriot Act.

In this specific case, the use of force is through the IRS and taxes/ fees.

But nobody is being told the truth about the law. The people get their typical divisions of the law based on political party lines and what media they listen. Not by actually reading the law.

Here is Obamacare in a nutshell:

Established by insurance lobbyists like Elizabeth Fowler to use the government to create a new marketplace (unconstitutional). The government will force people into this marketplace through the use of fees and taxes. With an influx of people entering a predetermined marketplace of insurance providers that wrote the law, it will increase the enrollment rolls of these big insurance companies, thus increasing their bottom lines.

Insurance companies must be approved by the government before they can enter the marketplace and provide a service/product.

Now for those that get subsidies from government, the insurance company providing the service/product will still get the full price of the insurance plan. Just not from you, but, for the Federal Government who is getting the money through taxes and fees. In other words, you are still paying for it. But now there is the middle man.

Fascism: The merger of corporate and governmental powers. Better known as Corporatism.

Of course Obama is not as bad as Hitler ...yet. But give this moronic textbook puppet dictator and his Nazi handlers some more time and power and they won't disappoint.
America is being soft killed/genocided with cancerous GMO's and vaccines as well as chemicals being spayed on us you read this. It's a sneaky new low for even these creatures ...WAKE UP!!!
History will prove how insidious this soft kill of America was when everyone here suddenly ends up with cancer for "unknown" reasons. This is a silent genocide -of course we didn't expect it but at least we should know about it by now! We are being murdered slowly without any violence being necessary.
People assume Nazis were right wing conservatives. The media bashes Libertarians every day with this kind of stuff.
Not true, the Nazi party -National Socialist German Workers' Party- were radical leftist socialists engaging in eugenics like the corrupt criminals we have running the foreign banker owned federal government today.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_Party
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/eugeni...
They believed anyone that was not genetic perfection should be terminated. If you were old, had medical problems, or were a little slow at childhood you were not fit to live or get any medical help when needed. And yes,they had end of life death pannels for elderly and many others.
That sounds like Obamacare to me.
Ask Canadians or Brits how they like their radical socialist health care. That's why they often came to the US for medical treatments.
States need to opt out. Looking now how broad it is, Obamacare was a covert dismantling and re-write of our constitution.
It opens the door to pure tyranny.

Nazis are like poison mushrooms. They always seem to pop back up somehow when you least expect them and then need to be stomped on.
If the public enmass refused obamacare, the law would become null and void.
If the public enmass refused any policy of obamas they would become void.
The problem so far is you can`t get enough people together to do this especially with all the free loaders feeding off the system that obama has given them at the expense of Americas workers. Your unborn childrens, children will be paying the bill for this..

Couldn't ban the 2nd ammendmant?
Now Obama goes after the 1st ammendmant by sending in free speech monitors to radio and tv stations in America -luckily even the FCC is not going along with this:

It's time for congress to step up and impeach this guy.
Notice the only military technology being developed in America is for its own citizens domestically whie countries like Russia and China are developing weapons to attack the U.S.
Think about it America.
We have a UN Red Coat in the White House who was put there to undermine America.
Impeach him through the courts congress.
If you disagree you must be a racist. Two can play that
This was the first step in trying to seize control of the American media and no doubt they`ll try again. Do your research, the media is under government control in all communist and most socialist countries. A few are Cuba, Russia, and Venezuela, If the people allow it, this could happen here under obama and his FCC.

2012????? Get in the now time frame – not 2012. The Senators/House do not want Obama campaigning for them or with them due to Obamacare. There are quite a few of them that know they are going to lose their seat in Congress since they voted for OBAMACARE.

There are still people that now DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE thanks to Obama - there are people that had their policy cancelled that was receiving treatments for cancer and now they cannot even get their medicine. We the people are being told of high number of people signing up for Obamacare but Obama and the DEMS have LIED SO MANY TIMES NO ONE BELIEVES THEM ANYMORE.

You heard it on MSNCB the station that has fired 3 reporters for not telling the truth, making racist comments - and so on. One of the reporters (Perry) was making fun of Romney's family because they adopted an AA baby - and Perry is AA. She has not been let go yet. Romney accepted her apology. To attack a child is so sick.

This must be a dependable station for you but most of us know the lies and we do research to get to the truth.

Barely 4,000,000 people have signed up, and only about 20% are young enough to make their policies pay for the other enrollees. We were talking to the lady that does our taxes, and she says most people are opting to pay the fine rather then sign up, at least for this year. They figure after the election there will be enough support in the senate to take the law off the books.

Nobody really cares what you believe - or don't believe.

The ACA, like Rowe v. Wade will NEVER be overturned. And the Rethug Teabaggers will continue to whine - and lose elections.

at the forced expense of others. Health insurance is not a right. It is a commodity. The best will go to those who can afford it. Everyone else will get government care, much like the care you get from the IRS and the DMV. You'll see soon. and you asked for it
