    is that the GOP's prime focus is on killing the bill.  Some of them are now trying to have it both ways by saying they will vote to "keep popular parts of the bill," but what they fail to reveal is that it isn't possible to have a workable plan if you cherry pick the popular stuff out of it.  Financially it is a disaster and one of the major reasons for the original bill was to try and get a handle on the soaring cost of health care under the old plans.

    Worse yet, they don't have any alternate plans and don't plan to:

    This and the GOP plan to implement the Ryan Budget plan but refuse to answer questions as to just what it will mean in terms of cuts in social programs are what voters need to know about BEFORE the election, but likely will not.  Instead, they may feel comfortable with delusions that "Romney is a businessman and he knows how to create jobs," or that basically "anything is better than this."

    Like the consequences of electing Bush Junior, the end results would be devastating, but too many voters would never know that their ignorance caused it.

    Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.
