Bob L. Just my opinion, BUT?

There is some thing rotten in river city, maybe, but this river city is called DC, or Democratic Corruption, what is so important in Obamacare that the Democrats will not back down ON this Affordable Care Act, is there a little back room PAYOLA [ a secret or private payment in return for the promotion of a product, service, etc., through the abuse of one’s position, influence, or facilities.] coming from stocks and the stock market.
The Democrats say they are there to protect the American people, then why are they so much for bring in more people out side this Country to work, when we don’t have jobs for LEGAL American Citizens, and don’t say that the American people are too lazy to work, it is the Government who is keeping Americans from working, one by allowing Companies to get work permits to bring in people to work in their companies instead of training people here to do these jobs.
Sure there are some who refuse to work, why should they when the Government pays them to stay at home, but the outcome will be is that what will happen when they come of age to retire, WAIT they are retired and the government is picking up the tab and blaming the working Senior for getting Social Security, why don’t they compare social security to paying people to staying home and refusing work and people who can not find a job because of, wait for it, wait for it, NO PERSON WILL NOT LOSE THEIR JOB BECAUSE OF COMPUTERS, that was sure a big lie when computers were coming in to being, that is just like they told people that cable would be COMMERCIAL FREE, look how far that went.
The measure to delay the tax penalty passed the House and is now headed for the money hungry Democrats who want to see that money coming in, no matter who it hurts, so they can start spending it as foreign aid to Obama’s buddies, not the people here in this Country.
U.S. House votes to delay Obamacare penalty for non-enrollment

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to delay for one year the tax penalty Americans will pay under President Barack Obama’s healthcare law if they decline to enroll in health coverage.
The vote, part of a Republican election-year attack strategy against the 2010 healthcare law known as Obamacare, marked the 50th time House Republicans had passed legislation to try to repeal or dismantle it.
The measure to delay the tax penalty passed by a vote of 250-160, with 27 Democrats joining with 223 Republicans to back the legislation. The bill is certain to go nowhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate and would face a White House veto even if it succeeded.
The 27 Democratic votes on Wednesday for the bill fell short of the 39 who broke ranks with the White House last November and voted with Republicans in favor of a failed bill that would have allowed health insurers to continue to sell plans canceled under Obamacare.
Supporters of the new bill cast the legislation as an issue of fairness.
They argued that individual consumers should be granted a delay on the penalty because the Obama administration had postponed the implementation of some Obamacare provisions that apply to businesses.
“This is an opportunity to stop the political games and put working Americans first,” said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a Virginia Republican.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, said after 50 such votes, “It’s time for Republicans to end their obsession with upending health reform and work with Democrats to strengthen it.”
Analysts say a delay on the penalty would undermine the law’s aim of extending health coverage to millions of uninsured Americans by destabilizing new private insurance marketplaces established on the expectation the penalty would encourage people to enroll in coverage.
More than 4 million people have already enrolled in private insurance through the marketplaces. The open enrollment period ends on March 31.
One of Obamacare’s most unpopular provisions, the individual mandate requires most Americans to be enrolled in health coverage by March 31 or pay a tax penalty that is being phased in over three years.
