Question by MaryJane: Since Republicans know they can’t change the healthcare law, are their stall tactics equal to campaigning?
Is a futile appeal to the right-wing really how you want your representatives spending their time and your tax dollars? It’s just a game; they know there’s no overturning this law.

Nonsense. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land and this bill clearly violates it.

If Obama successfully defends the Health Care Law in the supreme court, then that Precedent is set for the Government to require you to purchase other things in the interest of the protecting the masses. So if your for health care, are you ready to make other purchases when the republicans follow up on that precedent down the road when they have control?

Sure. Isn’t that what Republicans were trying to turn Social Security into last decade, before the stock market collapse of 2008 proved private markets are too unstable to base social engineering upon?

Question by : Would this be a workable compromise with Republicans who want to repeal the health care law?
As a Liberal I even agree with Republicans that there is something wrong with forcing people to purchase health insurance.

I would gladly see the health care law repealed in exchange for one concession from the republican party. And this is it.

Allow those of us who buy private health insurance, those who are unable to buy health insurance due to pre-existing conditions and those who are not happy with employer based insurance to form
a Public Option Insurance Company.

This Public Option would be voluntary and open to those who wanted to go this route. The rest of you can stay put if you like your current plan.

How about it?

Question by Les S: Why do Republicans oppose state regulated private insurance exchanges?
The Obama administration on Monday released broad new operating rules for state-run health insurance exchanges, which form a key part of the 2010 federal healthcare reform law that will face landmark Supreme Court hearings in just two weeks.

Industry and consumer groups welcomed the regulations, saying they provided states with the flexibility necessary to meet consumer needs for choice and quality protections. They also said the regulations shift policy focus to the state level, where the new rules must be implemented.

Both the insurance industry and consumer watchdog groups approve of the state run exchanges, which will help reduce costs and provide insurance to millions.

Why do Republicans oppose this?
– The federal government plays a negligible role
– private insurance companies still provide the insurance
– the states have control over the exchanges
– The exchanges open markets for private companies to provide insurance across state lines
– and costs are being reduced.

All of these things republicans supported in the past. Why do they oppose it now?
