"No, just someone who wants hire 3 million more government workers, increase corporate taxes, force employers to have retirement accounts for their workers, force companies to give up "excess profits", increase spending by at least $500 billion a year, and pretty much"

Isn't that called social justice? I honestly think that to deny people free healthcare is abhorrent, and a pention equally so. Why is it wrong that Obama believes that people who have worked hard all their lives deserve to be able to support themselves financially in retirement, rather than just being plunged into poverty?

because some americans still think that george bush did a great job

obama is righting the wrongs in american society

such as an insurance company decides wether you live or die

they hunt through your insurance application looking for spelling mistakes, incorrect grammer that they can use to refuse to pay out and when you do end up with cancer

you find out that you failed to mention you had a tooth out when you were little and therefore we wont pay your health care

Obama is the best hing that has happned to america in a long time and hopefully the world if they manage to sort out israel out and get them to the negotiatingtable and stop the settlements

No, not really.

Obama did a deal Big Pharma so they can keep their drug monopolies and 23% profit margin.

That is why he went after Insurance companies who only make a 6% profit margin.

I think people expected him to snap his fingers and fix every problem in the entire world, and when it turned out he couldn't (no one can), people are shocked.

I acually like the idea of universal health care; but what I don't like is Obama's prejudiced stance towards the English.

Why are you Anti-Obama, clearly, there are many people pulling the strings, either apparent, or hidden.

Obamacare is the worst idea since the Hindenburg. It's not universal health care

Why? It's quite similar to a lot of successful European systems, like Switzerland (except for the lack of public option)

You should really take some time and read about the hundreds of waivers given to businesses to comply with Obamacare. Many companies were in a position where they were going to be forced to go out of business, drop coverage, or lay off a lot of people. Because it was an election year, companies were given one year to comply, so the can has been kicked down the road. You will see when the waivers are up, if not extended, they will set off a bomb that will destroy the US economy from the inside out.

This article points out many of the things that are wrong with the bill.

Is it? The free market still effectively controls the healthcare system over there, not having the public option was a hige disappointment for the left. Michael Moore, Jon Stewart all said it was almost effectively worthless.

With the rise of the Royalist(hiss!) and Republican societies I figured I'd suggest us Obama haters jump on the band wagon and create our own society, the "Anti-Obama Society", where we can happily say we hate Obamunism and all associated Socialism/Communism, and we will NOT jump on the band wagon!

Who's with me?

Society is up
