Repeal healthcare ?

Repeal health care? Give up your own first! Don't you think?

Tell Congressman Boehner and Senator McConnell if they want to repeal health care, they need to practice what they preach, and give up their own government-sponsored health care first!

  • I am all for health care for all but this bill needs a little more work on it. But I do agree with that, if they don't want this bill at all maybe they should give up their health care for a while and see how it is without it when it's really needed.

  • The republicans already tried to introduce a bill with the dem majority in the last congress that would require congress to abide by the same health care law and the dems struck it down before it could even make debate. Guess we should tell the dems the same thing.

  • Democrats aren't looking to take the health care bill away!

  • No, they just passed it by twisting some arms and ignoring their constituency, all while giving vouchers to select groups to exempt them from havingto participate. If it's such a great thing, why should some people not have to participate, and the rest of us do?  Not to mention that they aren't taking anything away.  This bill does nothing for actual health care, but is a huge wet kiss to the insurance industry and big pharma.

  • She sure is, YSK. Looks like she got the Dem talking points for the road to 2012. I wonder if there is an app for that?

  • The Republicans had their chance for input in the health care bill. But NO they were the party of NO! They took a chance it wouldn't pass and it did. Sorry! You're out!

    LOL...That talking point is SOOOOOOO worn out! By using tired and worn out phrases, you;re telling us that you have NO CLUE what ObamaCare was about or it's far reaching implications!! You clearly haven't done a stitch of independent research, let alone actually READ the bill like many of us here HAVE!!


    P.S.  Until November the DEMOCRATS held the MAJORITY of both chambers of Congress.  They didn't NEED a SINGLE REPUBLICAN VOTE!!  They just WANTED a Republican or two to "sign on" so they could BLAME Republicans when it all came tumbling down!!  So ObamaCare, and all of it's faults as is CURRENTLY written, lies squarely on the shoulders of the DEMOCRATS!!!


    Nice try, though! LOL :o)

  • I'm fine with some changes in the bill, but it won't be repealed. Maybe the republicans will get serious this time around!

  • Well, sweets, I think they have actually discussed that point. But, they have to get the dems to be on board too. Will the Pelosi's and the Reid's give up theirs? Doubt it.
