A few questions to those who support Obamacare
What if Obamacare still leaves millions without health insurance?
What if Obamacare causes the cost of healthcare to go up?
What if Obamacare causes your taxes to go up?
What if Obamacare creates more of the bad stuff Michael Moore's movie talked about (which is really mercantilism - government protection of businesses)
What if Obamacare reduces competition for health care services causing longer wait times and higher costs?
What if Obamacare is about making the Healthcare Industrial Complex richer and your insurance costs go up?
What if Obamacare causes Medicare costs to rise?
What if Obamacare causes Missouri state government to go bankrupt due to Medicaid mandates?
Wouldn't you like to know who really will benefit from Obamacare?
They have been working on this for nearly a year and you still don't know what is in the bills?
Are you not a little suspicious that what you are being promised is not what is in the bill?
Are you willing to risk 1/6 of our economy by passing a bill that 75% of the people oppose, that Pelosi and Reid are having to BRIBE other Congressman for their votes, and that puts your health care in the hands of the same type of bureaucrats who ran the Kansas City and St Louis school districts into bankrupt failures?

Experts from Charles Krauthammer's recent column for Real Clear Politics:

"...Late last year, Democrats were marveling at how close they were to historic health care reform, noting how much agreement had been achieved among so many factions. The only remaining detail was how to pay for it.
Well, yes. That has generally been the problem with democratic governance: cost. The disagreeable absence of a free lunch.
Which is what drove even strong Obama supporter Warren Buffett to go public with his judgment that the current Senate bill, while better than nothing, is a failure because the country desperately needs to bend the cost curve down and the bill doesn't do it. Buffett's advice would be to start over and get it right with a bill that says "we're just going to focus on costs and we're not going to dream up 2,000 pages of other things."
Obama has chosen differently, however. The time for debate is over, declared the nation's seminar leader in chief. The man who vowed to undo Washington's wicked ways has directed the Congress to ram Obamacare through, by one vote if necessary, under the parliamentary device of "budget reconciliation." The man who ran as a post-partisan is determined to remake a sixth of the U.S. economy despite the absence of support from a single Republican in either house, the first time anything of this size and scope has been enacted by pure party-line vote.
Surprised? You can only be disillusioned if you were once illusioned."

"Somewhere in this favored land, the sun is shining bright...somewhere our troops are laughing, somewhere Glenn Beck will shout, but there is no joy in Congress, Mighty Obama has struck out!"
