Obamacare ... "free health care" ... has become a liberal mantra like "union jobs." Never mind that unionized industries have moved overseas in droves as the unions drove costs to unsustainable levels ... never mind that public sector unions ensconsed mathmatically unsustainable pensions into the public debt .... never mind that unions have funded organized crime for over half a century ... UNIONS WORK! Obamacare is the same old song ... it will kill inovation & jobs encourage corruption and provide less service at a higher cost. OBAMA CARE WORKS.!

Your facts are all wrong. Obamacare is not "free health care." Nobody - repeat, nobody - ever said it was. Even the Supremes called it a 'tax.' Do you consider something that is taxed 'free?' Yes, some public sector unions have abused their privileges. No, very FEW unions have funded organized crime; only a fraction of public unions have ever been involved in organized crime. Obamacare has nothing whatsoever to do with 'unions'. As to Obamacare, 'encouraging corrpuption and killing job care,' how do you know? It will not even be fully implemented until 2014.

Union pension funds were robbed to fun Las Vegas casinos, while the union bosses reaped millions of dollars in kickbacks. Kickbacks to unions to preserve labor peace was a common practice. I worked at a company where one particular union cut the break cables of the trucks to intimidate the ownership. That they put the drivers lives at risk was of no concern to them.

ObamaCare was sold to the masses as "giving them healthcare". It was supposed to be a means of providing health insurance to those who supposedly could not afford health insurance. It puts government in charge of what insurance can charge for coverage and what the coverage is supposed to include. Each state is supposed to set up a, I forget the name they gave it", but something like a clearing house which costs the state money from that state's budget. many states are now opting out so the U.S. government will have to set them up. More bureaucracy, more layers of meddling. More costs.

"free health care." It is/will be free to the 47%. That is the whole point. The rest of us will pay through every bodily orifice.

you have hit a homerun with the bases loaded.

Last night, I joined CNBC's The Kudlow Report to discuss the recent news that 18 Senate Democrats have signed a letter urging the postponement or repeal of Obamacare's destructive medical device tax.  Conservatives have warned for years that the tax would kill jobs and undermine innovation in the field, a conclusion that some Democrats have finally embraced as implementation looms.  The Left has recognized this problem all along, of course, but they needed to squeeze as much on-paper revenue as possible into the Obamacare CBO score back in 2010 in order to attract those final few votes from "fiscally...
