      Please! This is criminal! There is a huge difference between health care reform (which was initially proposed) and health care insurance! Repeal with no compromise! There is great suspicion behind this and it shows this government made up health care insurance is more of a punishment to the majority of the good people of America than a benefit to anyone! Now, please! Throw it out!

      I went to pick up prescriptions today. The co pay went up $10.00. $10.00 more per each prescription I need to survive! To live! To breath air! Did I get notice? Not until I got there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE!

    3. Lloyd Scallan (New O says:

      Obama, Pelosi, and Reid knew exactly what was in ObamaCare, as well as many of their lackeys that accepted bribes (such as Mary Landrieu, D-LA). I do not understand why more American can't recognize that ObamaCare was

      designed to be as it is for one very important goal that Obama has always wanted to achive, SINGLE PAYER HEALTHCARE. Or for those that don't understand, a system, fully controled by Washington bureaucrats, that will decide who get healthcare and when. Or to put it into one word, COMMUNISM!

    4. Mike, New York says:

      the first order of business for the112 congress, OBAMACARE OUT, also a law that only provides health care benefits to congress based on the average of the State the congressmen represent, after their term in office is over, they only have COBRA, thereafter, they and their family are on their own, just like the rest of us, that is to say their Employers, enough of the entitlements. mike

    5. Dolores Luthi, San J says:

      I think legislation should be passed to stop the practice of bribery. I think bribery was used on many just to get the new health care law passed. I sure hope that it can be repealed in 2012 or 2013.

      Mike from New York hit the nail on the head. Whats good for the goose is good for the gander. That goes for all Federal employees.
