Health is not what Obamacare is about

Not that I can predict how the health care Supreme Court decision will turn out, but Tuesday, I was out of town on business, and when that happens I am always glued to talk radio and satellite radio to follow news.

It's something you have to do when you're in my line of work.

I was amazed that many court watchers yesterday were somewhat amazed that some of the Supreme Court would ask challenging questions about the health care law.

I don't think the government's lawyer arguing the case had his best day.

But afterwards, cable analysts and news pundits were calling the fist day of arguments a train wreck for the pro Obamacare side.

To me, this shows you home much the mainstream media is out of touch with the heartland of America.

It was like it's the first time anyone said this may be against the Constitution.

Again, I have no idea how this will turn out.

I've been in this business too long and seen too many court cases thought to be a slam-dunk going the other way.

But there is no doubt we need to improve our health care model. We've not let the free-market work enough.

It's crazy you can shop across the whole country to get the best deal.

I did this a while back when I bought something off the internet from another state because the price was better.

Why cant we do that with medical insurance?

Make the insurance companies roll up their sleeves and start cutting deals.

The presidents health care plan is a bad deal because it opens up the door to a president that would allow the federal government to affect every part of your life.

That's the problem with Obamacare.

Not for what it does now although it's a naive plan.

It's what Pandora's Box will open for other things the feds think we need to do.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Unfortunately, as the moral fiber of a country declines, the louder the call for socialism becomes. The problem is not President Obama. The problem are people naive enough to vote for him or anyone else who support a socialist agenda. So many wanted 'change' and now we are fixing to get it.

Rollinson - you are a FINK! Neal, Obama has a double digit lead over Romney. The rich kid had to brag about his stuff. Two cadillacs for wifey. I cannot relate, to or support people like that. They are totally motivated by profit and more profit. Rollinson, you obviously know very little about the scourge of the swaztica. Otherwise you would not compare any American to the Hitler Regime. You should spend a little (or a lot) of time in Haiti and Africa where genicide is actually happening!

Since when has obama DEMONSTRATED by any action that he is American??

Rattatooey....a silly name for a person with a silly comment. Wasn't there a cartoon movie abouts rats with that name. Fitting. I do not like everything about Romney for sure but he's made money the way Americans can and should be able to. In a free capital marketplace society. And he clearly wants it for everyone. Got to guess you are an Obama supporter. If you or any other American votes for Obama (again and the first time) you and they are NUTS.

A February 27, 2012 "Rasmussen Poll" (a real polling agency and not a media poll) showed Ron Paul able to defeat Obama by 3 points when, Romney, Santorum, and getrich were not able to beat Obama. Of course, we are not supposed to question why the vote talley does not reflect this fact. -Rollinson is a dupe, he continually shows that his brain doesn't "light-up" all the way.

It is obama's version of the Nazi railway cars to the ovens for the Jews; it will be our rationing board for determining who gets medical treatment and who dies. The elites will be cared for and us working stiffs will be stiff indeed when we die from lack of care!!! It was NEVER about healthcare!!
