This is the perfect time to give the Democrats a sucker punch. For all of these reasons, and the fact that the law itself is a horrible abortion that could have never worked in the firs place, we need to turn around, now, right now, and say to the nation and Obama -- "OK. We will add in the money if President Obama and the Senate agree that 1) it will be implemented exactly as written."

Or (I probably should say) as nearly as possible with something so fundamentally flawed. That means all exemptions, waivers, and subsidies are rescinded. That all members of government for the President on down must agree to join. Immediately and publicly.

Abe Lincoln is credited as saying "The best way to get a bad law repealed is to enforce it strictly. " In this case, Obamacare has enough bombs of its own to kill it, and the Democrats know it. Without those exemptions and waivers, they don't want anything to do with it.

Let's really hold their feet to the fire here.

IMO, The dems can't do Obamacare as written. The employer mandate will not work. The employer only has to cover the employee, not his/her family. The employer can then charge full price for dependents. This makes employer mandated insurance completely unaffordable for the employee.

The horror stories about companies cutting employees to part time are completely backwards. Employees will be begging to be cut to part time, so that they become eligible for the exchanges. The exchanges will be fairly low cost for many (most?) when the tax credit is taken into account.

I predict that you will quickly see employers working with their employees to arrange work schedules so that the employees can work two part-time jobs. Employers and employees will have a great incentive to do this, since it will relieve them both of a huge financial obligation.

I'm assuming here that the exchanges will be money losers, and the govt. can't really afford to have a big percentage of the population using them. I could be wrong, but I kinda doubt it, and I'm really too lazy to do the research.
