i don't know or care what the republicans are doing on this but Democrats should be campaigning to overthrow this POS legislation
the "affordable care act" is a trainwreck bill written by lobbyists from the insurance companies. it mandates universal coverage without regulating costs at all, and lets your pvt insurance determine how much your life is worth. yeah, your insurance co. is your death panel, not the gov't.
The ONLY reason Obama spent the first 2 yrs of his presidency on healthcare is because that's the deal he had to cut with the devil (billary) to get them to step aside and let him have the nomination.
Bill's shrewd enuff to know that forcing Obama to do healthcare would tank his presidency, thus assuring Bill's legacy and preparing the stage for Hillary in '16. Obama was never on board to do healthcare so he just phoned it in to satisfy his "contract" with the Clintons, hence we get this half-assed lump of economic kryptonite instead of anything transformative.
