The Democrats will do anything they can to handcuff America with the social program of all programs. They will attempt to use reconciliation, a.k.a., the nuclear option, to ram Obamacare down the throats of America. America be damned. They will do what they want because enough Americans voted them into office.
Elections do have consequences. The Americans that voted for Obama and their liberal Democrat Representatives and Senators got what they wished for. If they did not wish for this, or could not see this coming, then they are all ignorant dolts.
Democrats have the majority. They can do with it what they want. But not without repercussions.
The claims that the Republicans used reconciliation multiple times in the past is true. But the scope is very different. Just like all crime is not the same, the Republican reconciliation actions were nothing compares to Obamacare.
Obamacare will put a stranglehold on American forever. The cure is not worth the cost.
Obamacare has nothing to do with what is in the best interest of the American people or the solvency of this nation. It is nothing more than a liberal's dream-come-true. It is one more GIANT step towards the socialist state we have become. It makes America weaker because it will consume more and more of our GDP.
Just like Communism is great for those that have nothing. Once they get something, it becomes stifling. Obamacare will provide below average care at an above average cost. We are turning our nation's health care over to inefficient and below-average human beings, a.k.a. bureaucrats. Only the destitute will see any benefits as some care is better than none.
Assuming I live to ripe old age, whatever it will that will bring my demise will be quickly consuming because I will be too old and too insignificant to receive any costly treatment.
BTW, once Obamacare becomes enacted, part two will be total control over all aspects of human consumption, from food and beverage to exercise and leisure activities. It has to happen this way.
