Personally I thought this was terrible political tripe to begin with with how it was presented to us. As I quote from the great Pelosi about this bill;
“You have to pass it in order to read it.”
I think this entire plan was doomed for the start with numberless people saying they would lose their insurance and those with insurance would be kicked in the nuts with rising costs. The bill was not comfortable for anyone, and when half of the country of republicans like myself are not very happy with one small little event after another, it built up so bad there is no way he could have passed any reform without getting backlash and disunity.
There is also the problem with government oversight which was a major concern, since there are many government programs which are crippled with debt, incompetence, and general all around ignorance. Rather then fix these problems or wait for them to sort it out, the democratic congress passed laws left and right, none in which really worked well. Cash for Clunkers a old example.
If the democrats had been smart they would have done it slow and moved a direction one step at a time like all realistic politics are in a republic, but instead they are trying to steam roll these new reforms in like mad men, which is causing more problems then actual good.
Or as said, I am a raving drunk madman with a love of Redwall. Shitposting galore for everyone!
