    Affordable healthcare sounds good.

    What's affordable mean to a multi-millionaire like Obama?

    President Obama will be remembered for many beneficial historical things, one being policies put into place to insure that all American citizens will have health insurance.
    Mitt Romney will be remembered for one of the things he did as a state governor....his instituting of a health care plan for the citizens of Massachusetts.

    Healthcare is affordable to anyone who's willing to work for it, nulti- or mega- millionaire or not.

    Making the workers pay for the softies is un-American.

    With the Obama term, America is transforming into a nation of beggars and whiners. Bwaaah!-Romney is rich. Not fair. Bwaah.

    For friends who have hesitation about Mitt Romney consider this:

    Justice Scalia just turned 78

    Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year

    Justice Breyer will be 76 in August

    Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.

    In addition:

    Justice Ginsburg reportedly has Pancreatic Cancer.

    Justice Stephens has already said he would retire and is just waiting for Obama to be reelected.

    The next president could appoint as many as 4 new Justices over next 8 years. This election is about more than ObamaCare Tax.

    We wish them all well, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and possibly four new members of the Supreme Court affecting our lives for decades to come.

    If you don't think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, I think you're smokin' something funky.

    So for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn't get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can't win, imagine this: SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ERIC HOLDER?

    Mandatory government-furnished health insurance/care is a state issue... not a federal issue. States have no restrictions except the say-so of the voter. The federal government is limited in power, so says the US Constitution.

    The contents of this healthcare law, should have been displayed on a web sight for all people to read, analyze, and discuss.

    Some people think healthcare will be free, without knowing whats on those two and a half thousand pages.

    Obama talked of a transparent administration.

    A simple fact remains that no one has yet mentioned. Whenever any bill has provisions that benefits any particular group of people, those benefits have to be paid for by someone else... one way or the other. No exceptions! There is no such thing as a free lunch or a free ride, as many politicians would like us to believe, when making re-election promises. It simply can't be done. Economic laws are as enduring as the law of gravity. There is no getting around any established law of nature. Someone (taxpayers) will ultimately have to pay for every promised benefit in that enormous and mostly still misunderstood "healthcare" bill. It literally entails thousands of pages. (Remember Pelosi... "We have to pass it so we can see what's in it." Ultimate political stupidity!)
    The Supreme Court actually categorized Obamacare as a tax, which was the main reason it was allowed to stand. How many good taxes do you know of? Every single one takes money from taxpayers pockets... including this one. In fact, independent analysts have concluded that it will amount to the biggest tax increase in our country's history. Please beware!
