TOO-often, the average-person fears making the "wrong" decision...so, procrastination rules-the-day; more-often-referred-to as "kicking the can, down the road". THAT, I see, is the only (present) "problem". -Shaman

Shaman I agree to a point, the same applies to Congress being able to pass a budget. However, Obama himself has already delayed portions of this law a year because of concerns and I don't see why he couldn't agree to allow the same grace period for us average citizens like he did big business. Perhaps within that year the GOP could get off their butts and address particular issues that they have with this legislation instead of trying to sabotage the entire law. I agree that the law does have it's good points. But both sides of the aisle need to come together to address the problems that have been addressed by not only businesses and unions, but also the medical community. I think a year delay would be beneficial.

If tge senate has any smarts they will follow the leader. Like its stated if its held off because of elections then the people must be saying something if they feel the people are for this healthcare then get it enacted then we will see if they still hold office after the next election. It's pretty simple just like Reid and Pelosi very simple...

Shaman, if it is your job to represent the people and the majority of your constituents are telling you that this law should be in the very least be postponed for one year in order to address many issues that have risen since it's adoption..." - Capricorn1

Things change...DAILY, it seems...depending on the source o' the info.

From what I've been seeing, the only reason (for delay), is to avoid implementation as-LATE-as-possible, to (eventually) impact up-coming elections.

We hear all kinds of (projected) "horror-stories", but...it seems more-and-more...Republicans DREAD Obamacare (actually) working-out.

TOO-often, the average-person fears making the "wrong" decision...so, procrastination rules-the-day; more-often-referred-to as "kicking the can, down the road". THAT, I see, is the only (present) "problem".

I say..."pull-the-pin", and get the ball rolling.

Shaman, if it is your job to represent the people and the majority of your constituents are telling you that this law should be in the very least be postponed for one year in order to address many issues that have risen since it's adoption, would you not listen to those that put you in office and do everything possible to address their concerns? It seems to me that liberals are the ones turning their backs on the people that put them in office.

"The Republican-controlled House decided last week to listen to the majority of Americans and voted to wipe out the health care law by cutting off spending for it under terms of the new federal budget while also taking action not to shut down the government.

We are glad to see that those who did this saw a physician to improve their spines over the summer."

Yeah...whatever it takes...to avoid the REAL issue, at hand; vulture-capitalists/for-profit health-insurance companies.
