...and t's still a bad idea.

The GOP house members would rather waste time, and taxpayers money, than accomplish anything that helps America.

Abe Lincoln said it best, "Bad laws should be enforced." Obama is issuing illegal waivers to those who backed his election and backed his health care plan. This should be fought. You cannot have your law and selectively enforce it to benefit your friends. We should not defund Obamacare as liberals need to suffer for this so they learn from their errors.

I love it. The looks on those GOPers is hilarious, and, quite frankly, not far off base.

lordhawhaw1: "We should not defund Obamacare as liberals need to suffer for this so they learn from their errors." Yes, let's give it a fair chance, which, in the absence of any winger alternative, would be the reasonable course of action.

So, Obama is paying me back for my vote with a waiver on my health care cost? Tell you what I will do, I will also jump aboard the anti-Obamacare rhetoric wagon when a law is passed saying group health is no longer legal, and that everybody has to buy their own health insurance, like auto insurance, based on their own personal facts etc. Right now, all the self employed workers in Minnesota are at the mercy of the health care industry that frankly, does not give a damn about our costs because we have no alternatives. Obamacare is competition and I am more than willing to give MnSure a try, simply because what we have right now is NOT working for the self employed in Minnesota. Level the playing field, and I will accept your statements. Otherwise, I am, for now, supporting this initiative all the way. I have yet to hear from Boehner or anybody else in the GOP, their plan for affordable care for me.

The Democrats in the Senate are for ObamaCare as long as it doesn't apply to them. The Democrats in the House are for it as long as it doesn't apply to them. The unions supported it before they found out it applied to them. The young people are for it until they found out they were forced to buy it. So which party really is out of touch on this issue?

"The Democrats in the Senate are for ObamaCare as long as it doesn't apply to them....."------Why would these groups need to sign up for the ACA? Every group you mentioned already has access to group coverage. As has been said a thousand times; if you like your current coverage, don't change. The only possible reason the GOTP wants to repeal romneycare is their fear that it will work.

We get so bogged down in the quagmire of political bickering we forget: The issue is healthcare cost, right? Insurance does not drive the cost of healthcare. The bath tub is about to overflow and we're busy trying to make sure we have enough towels instead of trying to turn off the faucet.

Maybe they should have combined both OBamaCare and Immigration Reform into one huge bill to finally drive this country off the cliff. No one voting on these bills has read either bill so what's the harm?
