That's because the Dimocrats only took one aspect of the Heritage Organization's plan (everyone getting some type of health insurance), then b@stardized that part of it by forcing all plans to cover all things for all people whether they needed those things or not, and ignored the parts that included allowing folks to buy insurance across state lines (encouraging competition), creating insurance pools for folks with pre-existing conditions to lower their costs, limiting the amount that gets paid out on malpractice lawsuits (thereby lowering the costs of malpractice insurance for doctors and hospitals as well as allowing doctors to not over-prescribe tests and drugs to prevent unnecessary lawsuits in the first place).... Why would any Republicans vote for a law that place the entire healthcare system into complete upheaval when just a few simple things alone would have significantly reduced the cost of healthcare?
Something this article isn't mentioning is that you can see a doctor for only one thing at a time, and only visit per day. As one of those folks who put going off to doctors in general, when I do finally force myself to go, I tend to try and discuss multiple things done at the same time, or at least set up a couple of time slots adjacent to each other. Can't happen under Obamacare's new rules.
Naw... they won't suffer the most. All of us will suffer the same.
In the article, it claimed the farmer was a Republican.

Bottom line... Pull the federal government back to the limits of the Constitution, and the social matters will tak care of themselves at the state level where they belong. The federal level cares only because they've poked their noses into everyone's personal business. If it weren't for tax exemptions and providing housing & tranportation costs for or citizens living oerseas, the feds wouldn't need to define marriage at all. If the feds got out of the healthcare business, there wouldn't be the conflict of mandatory types of insurance and religion. If the feds got out of the marriage definition business, then they wouldn't be legislating whether a business or church has to serve gay couples. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera....

It's really not that hard. If a state has been designated red and is following the conservative Constitution, then all of those things that the blue residents have the government providing for them will no longer be available. They either adapt to the conservative way of doing things, or they'll voluntarily deport themselves to the blue side that they believe in. After all, they will be in the minority in a red state. But as to being invested where you're at, when the transfer of people inevitably happens, there will be people lining up to buy houses and businesses on both sides of the line. I suspect some folks will just out-and-out swap in order to be on the side that they want to be on.
Ya know, if that little Maryland kid had just flipped the poptart over, he could have told his teacher it was just an outline of his state...
Illegals can't get welfare benefits for themselves, but they can get them for children they might have that are U.S. citizens. Hence the anchor baby problem.
