    The Romneycare system originated in the very liberal MA statehouse.

    So you're going to go nowhere pointing to who approved what in the past.

    And a key component of Obamacare was capping those profits.

    Obamacare saves lives and redistributes income on a large scale. What is "right-wing" about that?

    ODS results in Obama's amazing ability to humiliate his biggest critics, on the right and the left.

      but entire core concept is neoliberal (as opposed to actually being liberal, and if that confuses you wikipedia has a entry on neoliberalism).  The profits may be capped, but profits are still being made -- especially with a huge pool of mandatory customers.

      Have you checked health insurance corporation stock lately?  The ACA has done wonders for their stockholders.

      Obama: self-described Republican; backed up by right-wing policies
