Because it's not a good thing. The idea is great, it's the economic failures that will be devastating. Here is another one, if the Obama and Democrats think it's such a good idea, why are they exempt from the law? Yet we are not? Here is another idea. If you get elected into office and the deficit is higher then when you went in, you don't get a pensions. If a person spent the way our government does, we would all be homeless. I'm for helping people, but first you have to be in a position to do so. Which means you have to let people make money. You can't keep taking, then spending more, then expect us to pay more to bail you out. Life doesn't work that way.
The way the new health plan was written, there will still be millions who can not afford it, but now will get fined. It also made the rates for everyone else go up. They should have designed it better, used more time to make it better.

Because they see it is a sneaky way to redistribute wealth, taking more from the earners, and less or none from the poor. It is also the way that both the government and the IRS will have all our medical and financial records together in one place. Combine that with the new info about the NSA : our text and phone records being gathered as evidence, and stored away for years "just in case we do something wrong", they work together with the IRS, as well as with the CIA for drone programs...I'm sorry, but that is too much control over our lives in this "Home of the Free and the Brave" country of ours! Our nation's medical system does need a complete overhaul, the poor do need to be served, but ACA is not the way to do it. American doctors do not wish to be employees of the government, and it's a terrible mess, but I think that Repubs should just let the pieces fall where they may, and make sure they have a good candidate around to pick up the pieces in 2016, bye!
