    Senate Democrats Urge Undoing of ObamaCare

    Many powerful Democrats, even some of the most liberal among them, are supporting what amounts to a dismantling of President Obama’s signature health care law.

    Using “Republican” language to make their case, these Democrats are attempting to repeal some of the funding mechanisms as well as the cost-containment measures that were purportedly inherent in the law.

    With some of their most influential constituent groups facing onerous tax increases that are slated to help fund the law’s mandates and regulations, Senators like Al Franken (D-MN), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Charles Schumer (D-NY), Patty Murray (D-WA), John Kerry (D-MA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and others -- all of whom voted in favor of the law -- are aiming to delay or outright repeal parts of ObamaCare.

    Maybe next time they will be more careful to vote for something that they have to "pass it to find out what was in it". Such is unAmerican.

    The elements that give the executive branch despotic powers will remain. They are the reason the law was written.

    The reason why this the law was written was to achieve more or less universal health insurance coverage in this country just like every other First World nation while getting the support of conservative Democrats in the Senate who wouldn't support single-payer health insurance. It should be noted this plan was proposed by congressional Republicans in 1994.

    And it should be noted thanks to Romneycare, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has an uninsured rate of 4.4%, the lowest in the country.
