    I am a physician. Trust me I am all about TORT reform. Defensive medicine and lawsuits are bad but suggesting that they own all the cost of healthcare is overly simplistic.
    FWIW I voted for McCain in the last election. I just don't bye into the sensationalism pushed around by many Republican movers and shakers.

    Sad day for America and probably one of the worst decisions by the SC. Now the government can force you to buy whatever their top donors want us to buy.

    You're trying to reason with the unreasonable. He himself probably doesn't even know what the left has to do with this...

    As an independent voter, Obama has done nothing to vote himself out of office in my perspective.

    Thinking about it more, anything Romney has to say on the topic of Obamacare is easily countered with his Romneycare mandate. I don't think, in the end, this will have much sway one way or another. All the outrage was used up when it first passed. At this point, we won't even be talking about this anymore in 30 days...

    That was in 2011. The new CBO projections have it costing over 800 billion more than expected because of fuzzy numbers by the Dems and Obama.


    President Obama's national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, according to a new projection released today by the Congressional Budget Office, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law.

    Once the Republicans had turned this into a political issue and completely distorted the facts people are posting nonsense like this.

    If you are going to criticize the ACA at least do it where it deserves criticism.
    It makes completely unrealistic calculations and ask physicians to take cuts to service that will result in docs leaving the profession. The AMA signed off on the law because they were promised fixes down the road.

    It seems the AMA sold out the doctors. The only way the doctors can continue to make the money they are making now is to either make a deal with the devil(they did through the AMA) or hope that some form of private medicine remains for the more affluent...or to provide the extra care that will be needed over and above the basic wellness care that the Obama plan will be watered down to in less than 10 years. To provide the same care that we have today with private insurance and include another 30 million patients while holding or reducing the prices...I just can't see how it is possible.
    Care to explain it to me?

    Romney will have to come up with an alternate plan and present it to the public. This topic will be a key talking point all the way until the election.
    Do I think Romney will succeed? No.
    Obama has triumphed and prepare for 4 more years. Sad.
