    Obama is in free fall, Obamacare is in free fall, where is the political will to spend $187 Billion more on Obamacare going to come from? Conservatives are actively working to get rid of Obamacare, and if the Labor gangs throw them their support, they will succeed.
    Blue model programs like socialized medicine, are much more inefficient than the private sector.

    Don’t do it just for the unions, do it for EVERYBODY!!!

      They a way to prove who voted for Obama. Then they could exempt all of them. That would leave just Republicans in te exchanges. That should work.

    Obama is afraid to open up the legislation to changes. That is why he said he would veto any legislation that would allow him to grant a waiver to the black letter law of the employer mandate. I suspect his recalcitrance will lead to the loss of the Senate in 2014 and a prolonged fight as ObamaCare becomes even more obviously fatally flawed.

    Shorter Union: We don’t want it repealed, we want more special treatment.

    Waithing for the usual suspects to show up claiming (a) ObamaCare is a roaring success and (b) it is all the GOP’s fault ObamaCare is failing.

    This is why passing such major legislation without at least some serious public comment and reaction is such a terrible idea.

    Unions are just pretending to care about their members now that it is obvious this thing is a disaster. They were behind the Democrats all the way when they hatched Obamacare without a single Republican vote.

    Many of the same people who campaigned for Obama just a short time ago are now being laid off or given fewer working hours precisely because his signature legislation has raised the cost of having an employee without there being any rising economic tide to blunt the effect. The giant mega-university health system I work for is laying off, buying out, or reorganizing the jobs of thousands of it’s employees, and much of the way it was set up was to be a player in the ACO (accountable care organization) race. It turns out that this wasn’t the kind of race anyone should have wanted to be in. Tens, if not hundreds of billions of dollars were thrown away by my organization and hundreds of others around the country for something that isn’t even going to happen, just like Y2K. The money was never going to be there. The modest Republican reform proposals of six years ago could be looked upon with wistful regret for not having implemented them, but no one even knows what they were, because the mainstream press wouldn’t even talk about them, saying instead that the Republicans didn’t have a plan.

    What do we expect from a 2500 page law that its “writers” didn’t even read, and is mostly left to statements like “as the secretary shall determine….”?
