The tactic of "defunding" or "repealing" obamacare will not work because it is negative. Conservative need to turn this around by proposing solutions to health care, to show they care about fixing health care in this country. There are real problems with health care in this country and conservatives have proposed no solutions. Obamacare with all its faults is an attempt to fix this problems. Conservatives do not like it, fine by me but talk solution, be positive and I will listen. Talking about repeal only makes you part of the problem.

It's not the healthcare system that is the problem. It is the legal system, it is the governments insistence in sticking its nose and fingers into every aspect of our lives, that is the problem.

Fix the broken, out of control tort system, revamp the nonsensical regulations that force us to pay for things that we don't want or need (Obamanocare is that attitude on steroids), and limitations on availability, state by state, that don't allow us to truly shop for health insurance.

Fix those things, and then lets see where we are.

It is my understanding that in years past the GOP did indeed put forth a comprehensive HCare Plan...
it had 4 features:
1...covered pre-existing
2...was portable job2job
3...allowed national shopping
4...capped suits with a ceiling

BUT the arrogant apostles of toxic socialism (aka democrats) refused to consider even ONE of these and went on their use bold lies not even one became law to try...this is because democrats never ever want to solve major national issues...they want to campaign on them and throw billions more at them...they did the same thing with the minor Social Security reform proposal under Bush...they lied and smeared it...and had no alternatives...their god is monster gov-meant, high taxes and secularism...the ultimate goal is that socialist utopia that never arrives....Fidel can expand on this...
