Good Grief -- all this because they hate Obama?

yes, Gunshot, it's all because they hate Obama. How sad that millions will be confused or afraid of their first opportunity to be insured because of these states misinforming or not informing their populations about just what this law can do for them. To me, it's downright scandalous that they're trying to prevent millions from getting coverage. Worse yet, that states refusing Medicaid expansion are putting the lives of millions at risk, all because Obama made this law happen. It's unconscionable.

I cannot believe that Governors and Legislators call themselves Christians and then use their authority to try to keep people from getting health insurance. And all because they hate Obama and/or they are so afraid that the Affordable Health Care will work, and they won't be able to repeal it once it is up and working.

If you value your privacy and you have the means to avoid it, do not obtain your health insurance through one of the Obamacare exchanges. Remember that it's the IRS that's been put in charge of enforcing the law, and they've hired 10's of thousands of new agents to make sure you'll be in compliance. Then, don't be at all surprised when the NSA starts monitoring electronic patient records and communications between patients and their providers, all in the name of "national security". Bottom line: Whether you're a republican or a democrat and you have the means and wherewithal to keep your medical information truly private, you would be wise to do so.
