Why do people want to keep Obamacare that was forced on them, when politicians didn't know what was in it and said pass it then we can see what's in it. Why do you want to keep Obamacare who lied to you about keeping your plan, your doctor, lied to you about costs NOT rising! Why are you mad about non public showing of this so-called repeal and replace when you had no problem with Obamacare being forced on you in the dark without your imput!

Why are you so approving of a mandate to force people to buy medical insurance in a country that's supposed to be a free nation not a dictatorship! Government doesn't have the right to force you to buy anything when it comes to health. What next? Force you to buy car insurance without a car? Force you to buy a house? Force you to live in a section of town you don't want to live in or financially penalize you to fill greedy coffers? Maybe next, Government will dictate how many kids you have or tell you what job to have without choice. Why do you think that won't happen? You allowed Government to take an inch forcing you to buy health insurance or else that they have no right to do, why do you think Government won't go further? Why are you so compliant with Government mandates until they become inconvenient to you!

Why do you practice exceptionalism when it comes to mandates! You're all for forcing people to buy health insurance as a mandate but a mandate for Medicare for all, decent, cheap medical care for all which includes Poor you're a couple of paychecks away from being yet arrogant to think nothing bad will happen, that mandate you DON'T want! Why are you so into the mandate to force people to buy something, but you don't want any mandates to force health care insurance companies to NOT take advantage of you! You bellyache about high prescription costs but don't demand mandates that enforce drug companies into not ripping you off! You bellyache about high deductables on health insurance your employer provides who don't have to, but where is your demanded mandate that insurance that needs payments to keep, pay ALL your medical bills so all you pay are premiums! You'd think with rising premium money that your insurance should pay 100%! You don't demand that!

Why are so many outraged about the high cost of medical insurance yet demand that Poor not be included in the right to have it. Decent health care and cost isn't a right for some, a privilege to others. You balk at health care for all!

Why won't you demand the madate for Medicare for all! Why do you insist that Poor be excluded? Middle Class whine that their lifestyle is slipping, expect help, while demanding that Poor be screwed! You could lose everything in an instant despite your arrogance in thinking you're untouchable!

Tired of this health care debate and Middle Class whining how they may be cut off, but have NO problem with their politicians NOT being on Obamacare and have private insurance, aren't forced or else! Why don't you care!

Why do you not demand the old days of YOU choosing your medical care provider instead of the Government dictating where you go! In the old days a medical insurance company didn't work out you chose a new one. No stupid Exchanges, no one you have to stay with you don't want, no force or financial penalities. What happened that you're so comfortable with being dictated to? You talk about freedom in this country yet allow Government to dictate! A law that says you HAVE to buy something or else when it comes to your health is not freedom! You've allowed this from Obamacare shoved down your throats. You've forgotten the days before force. If Obamacare was so great you wouldn't have been lied to about keeping your doctor and plan, your costs wouldn't have risen despite promises to the contrary. You want to keep Government forced Obamacare. Have you really forgotten how it was before where you made all choices of what to buy with health without financial threats of non compliance? Will you be just as compliant if Government tells you where to live, dictate house or apartment buying, maybe how many kids you can have, penalize you for non compliance? Do you really think that would never happen? Well, no one thought a temper tantruming, dishonest, scamming, sociopathic, narcissistic, vindictive man would become President, who thinks he's above the law like a dictator, who thinks he can get away with whatever he wants, would ever happen either!

You demand affordable medical insurance, you demand decent care for all you shell out in deductables not covered, you demand mandates forced on others. Why have you become so accomodating to force and Government control! Have you forgotten what freedom used to be like where you aren't forced to buy or else when it came to health? It's not enough that you can't get anything else without having to buy or else! Cut off their heat! Cut off their water and electric! Let them starve! Take away their home! But don't mess with my health care that's not really mine but now Government controlled!

Since you're so compliant about dictatorial mandates for health insurance, why don't you demand that your politicians be forced to have the same Obamacare instead of enjoying exemption and choosing their own private insurance! Why do you keep voting for people who want to impose things on you who won't take those things!

I have no sympathy for Middle Class panicking about losing their health care when they reject affordable health care for ALL people which includes Poor.

Government has overstepped its boundaries for too long. You've become happy indoctrinated Borg drones willing to comply with anything as long as it benefits you, ruining the lives of others. The Borg 'queen' Trump is quite pleased that you'll comply with anything and re elect the same liars and cheaters.

IF repeal and replace of Obamacare doesn't go through in the end, a health care law forced on people, dictating to people what and where to buy, punishing you financially if you don't comply that Government doesn't have the right to do, who want to control every aspect of your life from politicians who aren't on Obamacare choosing exemption that citizens are denied the choice of, I better not hear any more bellyaching about rising premiums, co-pays, deductables, high drug costs, problems with pre-existing conditions, because you'll have gotten what you wanted.

IF you get to keep Obamacare in the end, forced on you by politicians who've exempted themselves getting medical insurance you have no access to, you'll continue to be taken advantage of by doctors, drug companies, hospitals, insurance companies whose only concern is profit that your politicians have no incentive to change because they won't use what they impose on you, you'll continue to be complicit in allowing Government to stick their noses into what's none of their business by dictating where and what you pay for in medical insurance threatening financial punishment in mandates you demand be kept in your pathetic need to be controlled.

Why have you conveniently forgotten when Obamacare was first imposed, peoples' outrage at Government meddling in what was none of their business when it came to medical care choices? Have you so quickly forgotten how Poor were blamed by you for high medical costs despite the fact that we don't set prices? But then, you're comfortable having a scapegoat as an excuse so easily duped you are. If Obamacare was so wonderful you wouldn't complain about high costs. Government knows what's best for you, right? Isn't that the running philosophy these days in that the more expensive the better? Oh that's right! High cost but really getting nothing in return by the greedy medical establishment is great as long as YOUR wallet isn't impacted! Your adult kids love being on your medical insurance. How many medical bills of yours have they paid when things got tough! The minute your health issues become a burden they'll settle you into a old age home that YOU have to pay for while still expecting you to provide health insurance for them until age 26.

Gone are the days where YOU chose to have some control over your private choices which you're very comfortable with having them taken away by Nanny Government dictating your health care while they're exempt. Eventually you'll all give up the rest of your freedoms without a fight so used to being dictated to.

Who pays off your credit card debt? YOU! Who gets your credit card bills? YOU! Funny how you don't blame Poor for your credit card debt. You go to others when the IRS goes after you when you've not paid for years. You pick the first tax company who claims to help who preys on you. Funny how you don't blame Poor for your tax problems. Who pays your utilities? YOU! You don't blame Poor, or fellow Middle Class, or any politician when you can't. YOU get the bills, it's YOUR responsibility. But health care rising, who do you blame? Poor! We're not responsible for your bills! We don't get medical care for free! Speaking for myself, you've never gotten any of my rare medical bills. I get them and I pay them eventually. Never been sued, not one hospital have I driven bankrupt. Blaming Poor for high medical care because of fear mongering was the perfect start to forcing Obamacare. Still blaming Poor for your high costs? Or will you get smart and realize no one but the medical community sets prices for profit! They're all rich but you never blame them. Funny how you enjoy blaming Corporations for things you haven't yet blamed Poor for, yet expect your boss who represents Corporate America, to provide you with job health insurance! Some businesses don't want force in that which you resent. Why don't you then quit en masse! You like the perk of employer medical insurance. Boss decides he won't provide it you're resentful. You're not owed! Doctors, hospitals, medical insurance companies are part of Corporate America making money off you and without a lawyer you hire won't honor a medical claim. Take money from you but give some back? With or without medical insurance you're over charged. No mandates to stop it. With or without medical insurance ALL deserve the best care. It's a right NOT a privilege.

I and the few of us left at least with health, won't be controlled.
