Some crooked and unpatriotic Republicans, especially the thieves who own the insurance companies, want to get rid of Obamacare mostly. Why?
Here's an example.
I was with another Insurance company before I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (pre-existing condition).
The company was bought by Blue Cross Blue Shield (Crooks). They said I was going to get the same coverage but it was a lie.
I ended up getting a cheaper policy every year because they were overcharging too much.
For example, before I was with the crooks, I payed $350/month ,my medications cost $40 for everything. Once I was with Blue Cross Blue Thief, I had to pay $86.
A doctor visit cost me $30 but with the thieves it cost me $35.
I pay $450/month for my coverage right now.
With the other one, all the stuff like blood work, etc, was covered 75%.
With Blue Crap, something like 15%.
The deductibles were $800 for something serious then they payed for the rest.
With Blue Crap, the deductibles started at $1500 for their cheapest policy.
Now I have the accident one which is $3000 deductibles.
I can't have any blood work done because it'll cost me at least $1000!

With Obamacare the cost is 100% covered if the stuff is done at my doctor's office (blood work for example).
My meds will cost me $20.
That is if I stay with the crooks but I want to look around to see if I can save more money because I despise Blue Cross Blue Shield!

I think that once this is implemented on January 1st, the crooked drug companies will be pressured to lower the cost of their medications from 500% to what we used to pay before, hopefully.

So as you can see, many of these crooked companies will have to treat people with respect and offer a decent service instead of abusing us.
For the greedy Republicans, it's very annoying when the government tells them to offer a decent service instead of doing whatever they want and steal from their customers.

Yeah, I know, I used the word crook a lot.

I have a better idea! Add two more parties.
Democrats, Moderate Democrats, Republicans, and Tea party.
Now you get a situation where the moderates could switch to either Republicans or Democrats to counter the nutcases from the Tea party.
Things would actually be done in congress.

How about a no-party system where people are just themselves?

This seems relevant:
[i]"However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion."
-George Washington, Farewell Address, Sep. 17, 1796[/I]

I have a feeling it'd be like Stephen Colbert's America Again (Haven't read others yet).

Darn poor people trying to take down the rich with their scheming ways.

Oooook...Why don't you just stop right now with all that crazy talk, Emp

This is called anarchism.

What Emp means is that when people run for office, they don't attach themselves to a party, they just run as them-self. They offer their viewpoints and all the other fun jazz, and they receive votes based upon those viewpoints and plans, rather than their political affiliation.

Our Democratic-Republic would still be intact, just not our Democrats and Republicans.
