    I was reading this article:
    Republicans agree on ObamaCare repeal – the replacement is ...

    It took 8 months after the initial proposal for the affordable care act was revealed until the eventual bill was signed into law. In that time, congress, the president and the American people had time to voice their opinion on what changes they wanted to see made.

    Just like anything government ever endeavors to do, Obamacare has been a yuuuuge disaster. Many promises were made and broken and the cost has been enormous.

    Now, government again is proposing shove another massive change in the healthcare system down our throats. Except this time around, government is acting like they have all the answers. They want to enact a replacement within the first month of Trump taking office.

    For pete's sake, the American people haven't even been told what the plan is. Do we even get a choice in the matter anymore?

    Is this the proverbial "Same Shi... err.. Stuff Different Day" happening here?

    Is anyone else fed up with government telling us what we want rather than government doing what we elected them to do?

    The American people were just given a choice, they chose republicans and trump. It's called an election. The republicans have already stated that they have a replacement bill ready to go when congress kicks back into gear.

    Republicans ran on replacing Obamacare and won bigly .

    I'm all for replacing Obamacare. Its a POS socialist government program.

    But now, government is using the same argument they made when Obama was elected - Obama ran on healthcare reform and the American people gave Obama a filibuster proof senate, at least initially. These lunatic liberals then proceeded to shove Obamacare down our throats.

    Now, government as it at again - claiming some mandate to pass some legislation down our throats. But this time, they are not even giving us the benefit of telling us what the legislation is before aggressively trying to pass the legislation. WTF?

    I do not want it done fast. I want it done right!!!
