Well, this does not include REAL reform whatsoever in it, it is a 1-1/2 page piece of nothing that just calls to repeal the original in it’s entirety, so if this does pass, which I truly doubt, the pre-existing clause will be repealed, the ability to insure your children until age 25 will be repealed, the lifetime cap will be re-instated, and you know the GOP will not do one single solitary thing in regards to reforming health care they had 4 years during Clinton admin, and 6 years during Bush and didn’t do anything then, so what makes you think they’ll do anything now?

So go ahead and continue to believe that the GOP is for everyone, they aren’t and never have been, they are only for those who can line their pockets the best.

Please. Republicans attack people all the time. Personal bias tends to lead people to believe their side is the “good” one, therefore ignoring poor behavior.

Geez… it wasn’t that long ago we had a rabid Glenn Beck fan get into a shootout with the police on his way to try and gun down as many people as he could at the Tides Foundation.

This is not a defense of Democrats, or even an attack on Republicans. The point is, if you’re going to make an argument, don’t make a clearly false one.

Nothing but Gimmickry and a waste of Time, You want to go after this law then target the funding but please don’t play games and tell me that you have 2/3rds in both houses because you do not. This is etched into law permanently and I will tell you why. I do not believe there will be a day the Republicans will get 67 seats in the Senate, To repeal something you need 67 votes and they don’t have it in Senate, They don’t have it in the house either as you need 290 votes and they are about 58 votes short and I’m certain the Democrats do not have that many dissenters who will vote for this in their caucus. Nothing but a waste of time and Lip Service to the Tea Party.

Well I’d be happy if the bill is repealed. I personally will be harmed by the health care bill because I can not afford to buy health insurance. Hey maybe when this bill is repealed, all the people who were fired from Sallie Mae(remember the bill also put student loans directly under govt control) will be rehired. Oh or maybe AARP which said that they would no longer offer health coverage to their employees because the health care bill raised the price of health insurance too much will be able to give them coverage again.

Complaining about personal attacks and then replying with a personal attack does nothing to forward the debate on health care reform.

Btw, although I don’t consider myself a Republican I do support Greed over Poverty.

Greed = Working hard and earning money to buy the things you need and want for yourself and your family.
Poverty = Slovenly behavior and then feeling entitled to others resources to help you out of your current problems and then into your next set of problems.

You don’t call what the GOP call the Health Care Reform Bill “Obamacare” attacking the person? Please!!! Give me a break! The GOP now stands for “Greed Over Poverty”

kir 01/07/2011 6:07am

I think it’s a good to give it a shot. I doubt it will pass but what it will do is give insight into which members of the house and senate are willing to replace this current bill. I want to see a new health care bill with REAL reform that will not cripple the economy.

Snexas 01/31/2011 10:21am

The name of this bill makes me laugh. What’s next the Repeal of Baby Kill Act and the Democrats Suck Act? It’s Republican fear mongering at their best.

faheem2774 01/13/2011 3:27pm

I too would want more reform, but dismantling this bill (which does include many Republican ideas) is not the solution. If you do not like portions, then legislate – don’t repeal and tell me that this is what we the people want.

I can go on actually. Btw republicans put forth multiple proposals they were ignored. Oh and… btw how many lobbyists are the democrats currently in bed with? How many mega corporations? Remember the health care bill puts a LOT of stress on small businesses that can’t possibly afford the mandates set forth, ask most small business owners, they’ll agree. Most of the bills passed by democrats protect two groups, the absolute poorest and the absolute richest. They destroy the middle and upper middle class.

If you can not afford it YOU will be eligible for a premium subsidy. This is the beauty of the plan it would help 32 million who are currently shut out of the system to get coverage. Republicans are not happy because the affluent ones (those who make more $250,000 would pay an additional 3.8% tax on their investment income. I wonder how much our congressional representative make? Does the tax effect them?

flynnfree 01/27/2011 10:09am

I think this bill is important in positioning candidates for the 2012 elections. The Senate races will be critical in 2012 and many more democrats will be vulnerable this time around and might tip power toward small-government candidates. I’ll even support a small-government Democrat over a big-government Republican.

I support repeal as a first step and then reducing regulation such as opening the markets to out of state carriers. And tax-breaks for individuals like tax-free health-savings accounts would also help. Free market solutions will win in the end.

BenjaWiz 01/24/2011 2:49am

Government is too BIG please clean it up and repeal this horrible bill and the tax revisions in it.

JeannieD 01/22/2011 5:46am

The 112Th Congress is proving by their actions thus far,that they will be the most egregious legislative body ever to be seated in the Peoples’ House. Their total lack of respect for the health and well being of this nation is shameful to say the least.
The Government of the United States has grown for a reason, to serve it’s large population and the growing needs of today’s society. Anyone who thinks otherwise is in my opinion an anarchist and shouldn’t be part of a government that they so despise.
A final word for all those that repeat the same talking points over and over. I have one of my own to add: The United states Of America is not a business, it is a Nation. And wanting to preserve the social net doesn’t make us all Socialists, it makes us humane.

Well, from what I’ve seen, the Conservatives attack ideas and the Democrats attack the person.
Democrats ideas and philosophies simply don’t hold up to real debate, which is what Conservatives want. So the Democrats attack the person’s character, families, decisions, etc. and not truthfully either. Look at last weekend’s AZ shooting. Perfect example of Democrats taking advantage of a crisis to spread ugly lies about the Conservatives.

Dear Dankat – you don’t tune in too often, do you? Conservatives have ideas and philosophies? You mean other than fiscal? If you name one, you will surprise even your local Congressman, if he or she is a Republican. They have only said no to all Demoratic ideas, but replaced them with none. DId you listen to Boehner yesterday? They didn’t have to be in a hurry to rewrite the legislation . . . because frankly, they don’t have any intention of replacing it. they just want the power back. Anyway, respectfully . . .

Nope, usually it’s the democrats that are the outright violent ones.

meadowj 01/20/2011 10:26am

Just—- elected officials doing what they were voted to do. “Stop the ever expanding government”. The repeal will not be successful but it will let the electorate know who needs to voted out in 2012.(If we could see the representatives that voted no)Why is it that the Aye button works for those that voted for the bill yet the nay button does not work? Choke the finances and work on other reductions.
Yes we need to fix a lot of things with health care but as the people requested such as work on things that can help without socializing the country and ruining the best health care in the world.

TheConservative 01/28/2011 6:11pm

Flynnfree,

The bill could have definite effects upon the 2012 election cycle. You mentioned that many more Dems will be vulnerable. To be precise, there are 21 Dems who voted for Obamacare the first time around who are up for reelection in 2012. You can bet that at least a few of them will give some thought to jumping ship and voting for the repeal measure. When combined with all the Republicans in the Senate, it would only take four of these 21 to pass the bill in the Senate and send it to President Obama. A Presidential Veto on the repeal measure would be quite a tool for the Republican Party in 2012.

You mean when they came together in the bipartisan committee with the President and all they did was lift that 2000+ page bill up and complain not offering anything to solve it? And the president kept asking them to give him REAL proposals with REAL facts?

The point of this bill is not reform – it is only repeal. Simple, quick, efficient. Get the mess cleaned up first, then move for some proper reforms.

Not really. It’s just a front to appear to be keeping a promise that recently-elected congress-persons made. It has zero chance of making it past the Senate or the President once, much less after a veto. I doubt it will make it out of the House, and it may not even leave committee.

There’s a reason it has an absurdly dramatic name: to make it look good for their constituents. It’s not a shot over Obama’s bow by any stretch, as it was expected after the results mid-term elections.

I could not agree more with your assessment of personal attacks. Unfortunately, they can be found on both sides, although they are definitely predominate on one particular side. As you said, they are utterly purposeless. Rather than advancing what would otherwise be an intelligent debate, they turn it into a childish squabble.

I also applause your summary of Greed over Poverty.

Don’t forget how the Republicans did try to bring forth their ideas. Obama would have nothing to do with their ideas. The liberals did this behind closed doors without letting the Republicans take part.
Also, don’t forget that this was about more than providing health care to everyone. It was and always will be about greater government control over our lives. That is why the liberals didn’t care that the bill was so ridiculous and badly done. They got the control and that is what mattered.

JeannieD,
Just curious, have you read the constitution in it’s entirety? Or the federalist papers? Or original works by Jefferson & Hamilton? The reason I ask is because the constitution was never intended to form a government to replace personal responsibility. So, when someone says “…the United States has grown…to serve it’s large population and the growing needs of today’s society” is missing the point of America. Our founding fathers lived under a government where EVERYONE’s needs were decided by a ruling class, and they hated it. Why are those who believe we don’t need a government deciding what is and isn’t right for us wrong? Why should we be mandated to buy ANYTHING? Also, you’re right, we are a nation. That doesn’t mean I have to pay taxes for someone to afford insurance through state managed exchanges. If they want that, tell them to look me up and ask me for a handout themselves instead of hiding behind congress.

mouseissue 01/17/2011 1:36pm

This is a LOUD shout over the bow of the Obama administration.

It will start by letting everyone know that this law is NOT what the people asked for by passing repeal in the House.

Next, parts of it that require funding will not get that funding.
Remember, the House controls the purse strings.

In the next couple of years, the house will propose alternate bills that
will keep the good stuff in this law, remove the bad, and add more stuff like tort reform.

And finally in 2013 after Obama has left, the repeal will be sent forward again and remove this monstrosity from our midst.

There is so much garbage intertwined in this mess of a bill, it would be incredibly difficult and time consuming to go through it. Make a clean break and start over. Also all the other non-health care provisions that were sneaked into this bill (like always) will be taken away as well.
I bet if you really knew everything that is in this bill, you would think twice about keeping it.

This country don’t need a government run healthcare. We have Medicare and Medicaid that just needs all the fraud taken out of it. We have illegals and others that come into our country and drain our resourses that our tax money has put up for the american poor people. The ones in this country illegal and collecting medicare and welfare and all the other freebees and not paying taxes is taking things from our seniors that has worked all their life and paid their taxes.
