  •  Right, there are ads on the radio in MO (6+ / 0-)

    right now from some conservative shill group using Utah senator Mike Lee's voice, warning how "Obamacare is going to make you leave the doctor you like and send your health costs through the roof. Call now and sign our voice petition to urge Congress to repeal Obamacare."

    My son is one of those people in the gap. Working 30 hrs a week for a small business at $10 an hour, he can barely pay his bills much less buy insurance. We NEED the Affordable Care Act to be implemented by all states in the way it was attended.

    •  It's even worse... (0+ / 0-)

      I had the misfortune to hear one of these anti-ACA ads and in it there was an older lady saying, "I'm afraid I won't be able to go to the doctor of my choice" and other scary bogeyman-type things. So apparently, it's not necessary to find something actually wrong with the law, just something that somebody, somewhere, is afraid might happen, even if no such inference can actually be drawn from the text of the law itself (death panels, anyone?).
