Southern states, some of the poorest, have a near-solid block against ‘Obamacare’ because derp

The main opposition to Obamacare comes from Southern states, including from Governors who lead some of the nation’s poorest and unhealthiest states. It’s a GOP trend.

Romney flip flops again: No Preexisting Conditions Guarantee Unless You’re Already Insured

More comedy from Mitt Romney, except the Republican Presidential candidate is vigorously shaking his Etch-A-Sketch with our health care – so, it’s not that funny. As reported here yesterday, Romney stated that there are some provisions in Obamacare that he supports which guarantees coverage for people with preexisting conditions. Only hours later, the candidate backpedaled. And…

Partisan pizza maker, John Schnatter, founder and CEO of Papa John’s, is having a public hissy fit over ObamaCare, so much so that he’s announced to the world that he is forced (forced, I tell you) to raise his prices due to the new health care law.

Romney Praises Israel’s Universal Health Care System (funded by a progressive health tax)

Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney wants to rid our country of the evils of the Affordable Care Act — the very one modeled after his own while Governor of Massachusetts. It’s no wonder that Romney didn’t want press coverage in Israel (because he can be quoted). Think Progress reports, “Mitt inadvertently praised the individual requirement and universal…

Republicans have vehemently countered “Obamacare” saying it will actually raise deficits by “trillions,” and that’s exactly what Mitt Romney is campaigning on to garner support from the Republican base. Every statement out of the Republican Presidential candidate’s mouth, seems to work against him. NYT reports:  President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul will shrink rather than increase the…
