A better question would be: Did those who voted for it read it first?
We all know the answer already.

To be sure if there is anything in any bill that hurts the political objective of whoever is reading it, they may say they did not read it. And a bunch of people, like many here on this board, will actually believe them when they say it. Like the Repubs who yell about not reading the "2000 page monstrosity" and follow that with "this Law is a job killer". If they didn't read it, how could they come to that conclusion? And a bunch of people, like many here on this board, will actually believe them when they say it. I think you get the drift. People, like many here on this board, will actually believe them when they say it.

If their intent is to repeal it in its entirety then there is no need to read it

bob, if you heard that Lee lady talking I wonder if you think she ever read the thing. I am sure that when she voted for it she hadn't read any of it. Nancy didn't read any of it, she just told the Reps to vote for it and then they would find out what was in it.

I wonder if one Senator read all of it before they passed it. Senators didn't take a lot of part in writing it so they couldn't have read any of it in the amount of time allowed.

Yep, that is very true but enough of it has been read by the Representatives for them to know that there is just too much in there to allow it to go on.

How many Congressmen who won re-election last fall campaigned on holding the thing up and how many campaigned on repeal?

No you don't. But your better bet would be that those who said it is too big, didn't.

Doesn't matter.

The 10th Amendment of the Constitution forbids it.

It's a done deal.

Bye bye "free" health care.

Have you read it?

I have tried to but it's just too much and that alone is enough to reject it. Why would ANYONE be in favour of subjegating himself to a law he doesn't understand himself? And besides that, a complete sector of industry CANNOT be micromanaged by a law!!! Businesses need flexibility to be able to compete and provide cheap services. Businesses bound by a huge bureaucracy will go bankrupt! This law does nothing but impoverise the American people even more.

I thought we had to repeal it to find out what is in it.
