Obamacare is Romneycare is Heritage Foundation Care...and yet the conservatives complain. Anything less than letting Pharma and the insurance companies have their way is apparently socialism/communism.

No matter what Mitt Romney says, the clear winners here are ordinary Americans. 30 million people who cannot currently afford health care will now be able to buy it at an affordable price. People with so-called "pre-existing conditions" (like cancer) now cannot be dropped from their insurance. I currently have decent insurance from my job and my policy won't really change due to health care reform, but I am still very happy it survived the court. Why? Because I might end up losing my coverage or my job at some point in the future. It could happen to anyone, even many of the people hotly opposed to the law. So-called Obamacare provides a basic level of health care security to all of us. By getting this law through, Obama may well have saved your life or the life of somebody you love. If the Tea Party crowd finds a cancerous lump tomorrow, they now won't lose their coverage and will be able to afford treatment. They really should thank the President for this. But I won't hold my breath.

Romney's reaction proves what a hypocrit he is. He signed the same type of program into law when he was Gov. of Mass. Now he talks as if this is the worst thing in the world. Why would anyone vote for this man??

I've seen many a news story with Republican or conservative candidate this or that saying they'll overturn it, but it comes off kind'a hollow now saying you'll overturn a bill that was passed AND supported by a supreme court decision, doesn't it? Almost like saying you are going to fight your own troops.
