    What a strange reaction. The comment that has you all in such a tizzy is objectively true.

    It’s so funny right wingers have the audacity to say these things don’t work when they tried everything in their power to undermine the program from day one.

    Like Jack said it objectively did work

    What are you referring to?

    The OP said something about "illegals." I really wonder what these people think Obamacare means.

    While I am not super well versed in how American insurance works, I was under the impression that repealing Obamacare would cause hundreds of thousands of marginal income families to lose their coverage all together.

    The question then becomes a moral one as to whether people who can't afford health insurance, deserve health insurance (I think they should, but I have only ever lived in Canada, so my experience has always been informed by universal health care).

    I suppose it depends on how you chose to measure the success of a repeal? If it is expressed in terms of dollars and cents, then eliminating Obamacare will probably make sense. If it is in terms of coverage and accessibility, I think alot of families would be made worse off.

    My understanding is that it will both reduce coverage for 20 million people and increase the deficit. @Jack V Savage posted some analysis suggesting that anyway.

    Once again every single first world nation has this issue figured out already. Only here in the states do have the most selfish right wing on earth that doesn’t understand how to contribute to a system that improves health care for all.

    Well, for starters there are the people who did not have health insurance before. Then you have the fact that the law slowed the rate at which insurance costs were increasing. So while it never did make insurance cost cheaper, it did make cost lower then then would have been without.

    I'm undecided on whether the bolded is something that opponents of the law are simply incapable of grasping, or it's just dishonesty and they simply need to argue, facts be damned.

    Liberals did a lot of heavy lifting related to free speech over the decades. They deserve a lot of credit for that. Now that the left wing is becoming much less liberal most of the attacks on free speech are from the left.

    Go shave your ugly mustache and leave me alone. Your post was so dumb it doesn't require a response.

    Yep, since the late nineties or early 2000s the right wing has been much better than the left on free speech issues.
