4. When medicare was proposed the estimated cost for fiscal year 1990 was to be around 10 billion, the actual figure was 100 billion in fiscal year 1990 and it has now climbed to around 800 billion given this we can certainly expect that Obamacare will cost far more.

5.medicare lost half a billion to help fund Obamacare this will help to destroy the Medicare Advantage programs that many seniors currently enjoy.

6. We are already seeing cutbacks in the healthcare industry, so while you may have insurance you may not be able to use it.

There is so much to address here: 1. The democrats passed this law with a super majority in congress, they did not seek input from the GOP or the American people for that matter. Now that is has become all too clear that this law will not work now they claim they want help to fix it.

2.The supreme court actually rewrote the law instead of sending back to congress in regards to claming that the penalty for not having insurance was really a tax. This by the way is the same supreme court that held that man can be property in the Dredd Scott case, that seperate but equal was accepatable in plessy v. Ferguson and that it was alright to intern Japanese Americans and in the Kilo case it dismissed the notion of private property rights.

3 As far as denials are concerned that last statistics available show us that Medicare leads all insurance with a denial rate of 7%, far greater than those evil private insurance companies.
