Let’s Talk About Obamacare

Cruz_924_620x350

With just five days to go before the healthcare bill is put into effect, officials from both sides of the aisle are scrambling to get their affairs in order, make last-minute decisions, and rally supporters, either for or against the new law.

But no one has taken such a bold and decisive stand against Obamacare like Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who has been carrying on an old-fashioned filibuster since last night and continuing until noon today or until he is “no longer able to stand.” This filibuster included a couple of bedtime stories to his two daughters who were getting ready to go to bed. A couple of stories were from a children’s Bible.

Whether you watch CNN or Fox News, we seem to hear a lot about what the politicians think about Obamacare, with a few snippets from everyday American’s here and there. I’m not much interested in what politicians (or News commentators) think about President Obama’s new healthcare law. I am curious, though, what everyday people like you and me think about it, and how we perceive it’s going to affect us, be it for good or for bad.

I just love talking politics. I guess that’s the reason for this blog post. I really want to hear what you all think about Obamacare, your fears, your excitement, how it might help you, how it might hurt you.

I ask that when placing your comments below, you keep them brief. State your opinion on the new bill, and, if you’re comfortable, your party affiliation. And remember, no one’s going to change the law by posting a comment on this blog, so don’t try to do so. Also, please be courteous and respectful to fellow commenters and to our President, as he is in a place of authority over us, whether we agree with his ruling or not.
