  •  So what will you say when the employer mandate is (0+ / 0-)

    placed back on schedule for 2015? That Obama is no longer doing the bidding of the 1%?

    Your argument is full of holes. The administration say they will put the mandate in place in 2015.

    By the way, why do you care? Aren't you one of those people who is against the plan to begin with as well as the mandate?

    You folk try every means possible to criticize this man, and with all you have been doing for the past 5 years, the President was reelected soundly and is as popular as always.

    I think that's a fail.

      And he is already virtually dismantling it himself with the recent ACA waiver.  Standby for more of the same...

      But hey, I am looking

      FORWARD.
      Obamacare was touted as being a start.

      The Executive Board of the New York City Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO, unanimously approved a resolution supporting H.R. 676, national single-payer health care legislation, sponsored by Congressman John Conyers Jr., D-Mich.

      NYC CLC President Vincent Alvarez calls this resolution “Labor’s way of standing up for the health and well-being of working men and women and their families,” noting “The national legislation is a true means of controlling ever-increasing health care costs, while ensuring that Americans get the medical care they so desperately need.”

      In the resolution, the Council notes that almost every union is forced to battle and sacrifice to sustain health care benefits for members. The Council also notes that while the United States spends twice as much of our GDP on health care as other developed nations, we remain the only industrialized country without universal health care coverage.
