    It’s not appropriate to thank Obamacare when you aren’t aware of the other consequences of the law. The problem with increasing costs due to defensive medicine to avoid lawsuits is still there. The huge costs associated with increasing the bureaucracy to “manage” the program is not acceptable to the taxpayers. Taking funds out of Medicare to pay for it is also not acceptable. The law needs radical surgery to make it acceptable to the citizenry. Currently nobody likes it except those who are on entitlements and leftwing pundits like yourself.

    Don’t worry Frank. All of your pre-existing conditions are covered under the Affordable Care Act. And I mean ALL of them.

    Greg, you must be an admirer of the soviet system. Anybody who disagreed with them was incarcerated to provide them with “treatment”.

    Frank, I don’t think you should be incarcerated, but I would recommend counseling.

    David,
    That’s ok, I understand the mindset of the left. You all want more and more control of our lives and the right stands in your way.
