    Does anyone know what these people think "the damage Obamacare has done to American families" actually is?  What are the negative impacts in their minds?

    Seriously, I want to know because none of them ever give any details they just speak in politico-speak without meaning.

    I do know they keep referring to the "you can keep your doctor" and "you can keep your plan" issues as problems but that only affects a very few people and in reality it's not a problem of the ACA but that these junk insurance plans were changed pretty much every year before the ACA. Of course, until Democrats start getting the truth out there these two issues will keep coming up.

    But beyond that, exactly how is Obamacare hurting people, according to these liars?

      sion that "You can keep your doctor" was proof that all presidents lie--so we shouldn't be too hard on W and the Glorious Eye-Rack Adventure. Yeah, I have to agree that "You can keep your doctor" is every bit as bad, if not worse, than "Sadd'm has weapons of mass destruction aimed at your babies' heads right now this very minute!"

      by giving them health insurance, where GOPers would prefer they just die.

      "You can keep your doctor" is, basically, "you didn't build that" all over again.  A giant nothingburger taken totally out of context but which is supposed to make you angry.  But like most things, the GOP has managed to manipulate their people into being angry not at the asshole doctor who decided to drop you as a patient because Obamacare, but at Obamacare itself, because it's Obama's fault that your doctor and insurance company are assholes.

        I don't believe I've seen a single credible instance of a doctor dropping patients because of Obamacare. In fact, that wouldn't make any sense because the ACA is simply people getting health insurance from the same and usual private health insurance providers that everyone has always used.

        I've seen one case of a Republican doctor who decided to stop taking on additional patients as he winds down his practice since he's getting close to retirement take the politically expedient case of blaming Obamacare for it but it turned out he was already planning not to take on additional patients even before the ACA become law.

      is something that already existed in the health care industry before the ACA was initiated.
