    So here we have a party that's basically going haywire with trying to stop a half-measure for making healthcare more accessible, while framing this as an issue of "choice," a president who is trying to actually do something about healthcare, and a public that's... well... I can't really talk about that one.
    Now, I won't go into detail on universal healthcare, because that's really a no-brainer for a first world country, and Obamacare doesn't actually institute it.
    So why don't the Tea Party reactionaries admit that they are in bed with health insurance companies? It's pretty obvious. They are plutocrats after all, and not representative of the people.

    If the "Tea Party reactionaries" as you call them are in bed with the health insurance companies, why would they not want Obamacare, which forces every citizen to get an insurance policy, to not go through as planned?

    Because living in a jurisdiction where every resident is required to have health insurance is not that scary... and I'd like to see you spit out 50 thousand for chemotherapy.
