WTF are you talking about? The Affordable Care Act IS Obamacare! This is the kind of questions you get from Republican papers. They don't even know what they vote on, they just know that if Obama likes it, then they have to hate it.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010.

i'll give whoever wrote this question credit for correctly using "than" rather than the commonly used "then". other than that, it's the same old let's bash Obama with a made up question/fact/snippet we heard on fox "news".

I guess you could ask this question 37 more times if you'ld like...
Won't change the fact ACA is a constitutionally recognized federal program...
What's more current is, Are you optimistic that CONGRESS will start doing good for the country?
535 Men & Women spending more time campaigning and soliciting election monies from special interest (lobby) groups than running the country...
Apparently this seems to be okay with most people???

"535 Men & Women spending more time campaigning and soliciting election monies from special interest (lobby) groups than running the country..."
They're all politicians, aren't they.
Though this is an interesting deflective technique from holding the current administration responsible for anything, I do think the president can and should be included in Veritas' rant. All one has to do is delete "535 Men & Women" and insert "President Obama."
And yes, I do know President Obama can't be re-elected after this, his second term. But it would be nice for him to know what is going on in his administration, on his watch, instead of giving speeches (and raising money) to castigate any and all who might oppose his policies.

"Tickets are $2,500 per person to attend a 5 p.m. reception in the Palo Alto home of Marci & Mike McCue, and $32,400 per person (the maximum allowed per calendar year) to attend a 6:30 p.m. dinner at the Palo Alto home of Vinod and Neeru Khosla. The maximum donation includes opportunities for discussion and photos, according to the program for the evening.
"'Just as he helped House Democrats recently, the president is back in town to help us hold the Senate,' said event spokesman Wade Randlett in a letter. 'Both events will be at private homes, so will be especially intimate. With key (second-term) issues ranging from immigration reform to climate change to trying again on gun violence prevention, the stakes for holding the Senate (in the November 2014 election) couldn't be higher.'

In fact, the SCOTUS "constitutionally recognized" ACA as a tax, after President Obama went on record more than once saying it wasn't a tax.

Wow loco, let's play that game shall we...Everytime the word Obama comes up, let's instead insert 535 Men & Women...Sounds like fun...
"Though this is an interesting deflective technique from holding the current administration responsible for anything"...Let alone the 535 Men & Women, wouldn't you say?

Yes a law from Obama thats bad... So how dense is the population that backed this bill? Obama screwed up and it will continue to be wittled down to exactly what it should have been in the 1st place.. Should have made insurance companies unable to deny coverage.. End of problem.. Obama had to try to make this Oscar winning movie and it flopped.. dumb and dumber passed it in the dead of the night and now even Democrats realize what a failure Obama and his Obamacare are..
Thats what happens when you get people in office that have nothing between their ears.. they go by looks not by brains.. Obamas never had a brain and Pelosi and Read are dumber then the dumbest.
Whats up Libs??? How come Obama can't uphold up his own laws? How come Obama didnt pass a jobs bill the 1st two years in office???
How about that libs.. Come on whats your "NEWEST" excuse for your Baby boy..
Wow and mid terms coming just a little over a year away.. Republican landslide anyone??????

1935 and Social Security was introduced...Various name changes and ruled constitutional (as a tax) later AND challenged AND revised many times after the fact...
This plan has helped countless millions both live & die with dignity and is only threatened by the 535 whom over the years have legislated it's honor away...
I could tell you a hundred happy stories personally from Social Security recipients...And there are already many, many positive stories from ACA...
This "good for the country" statement coming from the GOP is where, exactly? This processing coal like it's 1969 is "good for the country" how exactly?
The GOP positions are (don't really know what they are) are "good for the country" like how exactly?
Getting over-involved in Syria is "good for the country" John McCain?
I could really go on & on and am anxious every time someone from the GOP tells the world what's "good for the country"! I feel safer,better &
cont.....assured things "will be better for the country"...
Who exactly is saying this stuff anyway? Does the GOP have a point man or just a man who points alot???
Jeepers...Almost forgot, Ron Carlson is their point man!

From what I hear "mudslide" is more appropriate...The heck with the black vote & the heck with the Hispanic's...anything...Rove is calling for White Power participants to change the balance...
Just a few more hundred THOUSAND mud slinging truth bending couple of hundred million dollar media campaigning alien aligning fear mongering got my finger on the button pushing maniacal believers who's 1st,2nd,3rd & 4th amendments are dissolving under a socialist imperial president without a birth certificate keeping his money in a kenya war lord's safe who happens to be a jihadist...Totally unfair to leave out the Tea Party victims of IRS (isn't this a paradox) who's right to commit fraud was impeeded on because the NSA was listening to their secession plans...OMGoodness...

I don't know if it'll be good for the Country, but it'll be good for me. A better policy with lower premium. There is a tax credit coming our way, most people know nothing of it, and I've never heard "The Limpman" mention it. Not unlike his lies about Obama raising income taxes 'til finally, after 3 years, put on the spot and admitting that under Obama most paid less income tax.
Countries with some type of universal health care include...Afghanistan*, Argentina, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Cuba, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iraq*, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Oman, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Ukraine and the United Kingdom....
The U.S is really the only developed country without universal health care.
We can do it America...the healthcare/insurance industry are entrenched and enjoy a very powerful in the USA...we got Bin Laden...we can do this too : )
I think BUSH/CHENEY have ruined any chance of a GOP landslide....except in Ward county : )
