Besides who here doesn't have health insurance? I do, I received an email the day after the supreme court decision: "Despite what you may have heard regarding "Obamacare", absolutely nothing has changed about your current health plan" Or something to that affect.

A friend told me today about her neighbor, who has an autistic child, who's husband has a brain disease, and who has just been diagnosed with cancer. They lost their insurance a long time ago. I said that she should tell her neighbor that next time she can vote republican, and stop being a drain on decent Christian folk.

Just more deadbeat liberals, as I see it. She should put the autistic daughter in a gunny sack along with the husband and just drown them like puppies.

The plan calls for all the deadbeat liberals demanding free stuff to pay for insurance or they get fined through the IRS. They don't have jobs, they don't have money, they cannot pay the fines. No money is going to be paid into the plan. It will collapse rapidly, and the only way to make the plan work is to deny care and allow patients to die quickly.

This was from corporate at my job.

Since most of the data in post-election polling has offered little beyond a parade of ugly news, here's a glimmer of hope from Gallup:
 

For the first time in Gallup trends since 2000, a majority of Americans say it is not the federal government's responsibility to make sure all Americans have healthcare coverage. Prior to 2009, a majority always felt the government should ensure healthcare coverage for all, though Americans' views have become more divided in recent years...Republicans, including Republican-leaning independents, are mostly responsible for the drop since 2007 in Americans' support for government...
