I have to ask this question because I don't think any of you republicans have a clue. We're so myopic. Everything is Obama this and Obama that. What were the Republicans saying about our health care system in the years leading up to where we are now? That it was imperative we got the drugs to the old people. It was a "Just Say Yes" to drugs campaign. And they won a lot of votes for it too from the 50+ year-old bloc. And then proceeded to spend the money and make government even bigger, supervising the greatest growth in the US federal government since Lyndon Johnson.
Republicans, the problems only began to you when Obama became President. "LMAO" says Merc14, when he hears an amount like a hundred trillion dollars. The only thing you have to complain about is "Obamacare" when everything else Obama is doing was either started by you or handed off to you already. Obamacare is the only obvious partisan red meat available to play with right now because it's a predominantly democrat/Obama-supported law. And that's the reason why you republicans care. Kicking Obama and his policies out of office is the end of your rainbow.
I'd rather save the future of America from becoming a very dark and shameful place. Unfortunately, saving this republic can't be done by following the partisan peanuts carefully chosen for me to consume by the media and blogosphere.
Republicans and Democrats: Obama IS wrong to push this insurance-by-force, this latest growth of federal health care that already couldn't afford itself, and the reason he's wrong is because you're wrong. You paved the road that Obama is driving down. Puppet Obama is way, way down on the list of names to blame for the health care crisis we face in this country.
So what's the answer to the question? How bad were things before Obama?
