Why not ObamaCare?

Now, I've been meaning to ask a couple questions for a few days now, especially since the government shutdown.

To me, the whole government shutdown thing seems like the most childish shit on the part of the Republicans. It really seems like it's a "If I can't have what I want, neither can you" situation, like the Republicans care more about their own agenda than what is in the best interest of the people of the US.

The main question I have though, is, what is so bad about ObamaCare? Now, admittedly, I don't know the ins and outs of ObamaCare, but is it not just health-care? If it is, I seriously do not understand what the problem is. It works for so many countries in which healthcare is already in place.

If ObamaCare is not simply just health-care then please educate me as to what the main differences are, and why it is such a "problem".

Thanks

The PEOPLE do not like this law. This isn't just about party politics like the democrats and media would have you believe.

Serious question here. Were there any Democratic Presidents you didn't/don't hate?

Okay, I won't argue with you on this one, but none-the-less, it did pass.

There have only been two in my life time. Slick Willie was a draft dodging corrupt POS. Obama is a dictator wannabe.

So, no, no democratic presidents that I have not/ do not hate.

Just because it passed does not mean it cannot be repealed and/or altered.

This country once passed a Constitutional amendment out lapwing the alcohol. It was later repealed. If a Constitutional amendment can be repealed, no law is safe just because it is on the books.

I remember sitting at an outdoor bar downtown in Aruba in 2005. me and my friend struck up a political conversation with two cute dutch girls on vacation from the Netherlands. I started talking and all they were telling me was ''please do not tell me you voted for Bush'' ''please do not tell me you voted for Bush'' ''please do not tell me you voted for Bush'' ''please do not tell me you voted for Bush''. So I said when 3,500 dutch are killed in a terrorist act you can get back to me on how I should think and vote. needless to say the cute Dutch girls were not interested in talking anymore.

It's a whole different ball of wax if you don't live here and feel the pain. looking in from the outside is pretty painless.

There are two sides to every story, unless you ask the media.

The other side would be, the Republicans are lobbying for a postponement of some provisions of the law which everyone knows are not ready to be implemented. Obama is refusing to negotiate at all.

So of course, who's holding things up is just a matter of perspective.

Both sides did that. Republicans are just as much to blame. No serious counter-proposal. Horrible political savvy.

Yeah like the perspective that Republicans are trying to sell that they only want to delay a part of Obamacare. When in reality they want to kill it.

Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
