Changes in the ACA are much needed.

unless of course a Republican offers a bill that makes sure it really happens.

I wouldn't trust them to open a can of baked beans that was already open.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Why would the Senate oppose a bi-partisan measure such as this?

This bipartisan bill has passed the House.

Now we get to wait and see what kind of goodies Nancy Pelosi throws in her bill.

First it's not on his desk. Second, it is his job to uphold his ideals. Maybe you just don't understand the legislative process.

just because it has some bipartisan support does not make it right or good. In fact, the Senate will drop kick this into the little round file just like all the other Gopper Teapartier attempts to kill the ACA. And rightly so.

Well as I live in a Constitutional Monarchy, I kind of expect my head of state to be a figurehead and for the two Houses of Parliament to do all the legislating.
We elect them (may God forgive us) and they make the legislation and the Head of State signs them into Law. Why does the Head of State do that? Because the people we elected to make decisions made a decision. The people spoke and the Head of State listened.

In the US, the president signing the law is not just a rubber stamp.
