Instead of thinking I am hitting you with a sledgehammer...

Consider this logically for a second.

Implementation hasn't happened and open enrollment for individuals isn't available until October. So logically, objectively, and truly, you cannot say this law is a failure, when its implementation is gradual and incomplete. Prohibition was repealed because people got sick and tired of it. I suspect if this doesn't work out, there will be a massive impetus to truly rid of it and the Republicans will win an election mandate to abolish it entirely.

But my point is that government subsidy to healthcare will never end, and right now, per capita, it is more than any other nation in the entire world, in history. If this bill saves American taxpayers one dollar, I'm all for it.

If this bill doesn't work, and starts costing the majority of the population more for healthcare, I will begin to actively oppose it. I am a registered independent and for good reason. I am capable of changing my mind and view both parties as two sides of the same coin.
