My friends mom CRIED when they passed this. People are blowing the whole act way out of proportion if you ask me. I think that it's just adding a little bit of humanity to our country (America) because i get the whole idea of capitalism, and i get that it's supposed to be the best we can get, but that's just because america is literally flooded with selfish bastards who don't want to hell anyone but themselves out. Socialism doesn't fail unless people want it to fail, Canada and even Mexico are doing okay with socialism. They're still in debt but they're doing better than we are. What's wrong with making the free-est land even free-er? I do agree with what we've done with the bill (seriously, medical services in America are bad, not horrible but they are bad and we're paying for the shitty service with a ton of money) but i know it's just not going to work because nobodg wants to try for it. people are already giving up on it because they're so ignorant and stubborn as to what it can do for us. The bill really is designed for the middle class, rather than the lower class, because you can either afford everything or you're so poor that the government pays entirely for you. that's great and all, but a lot of america isn't poor but can't afford to raise 3 kids, send them to college and keep a mortgage going, but the government turns a cold shoulder on them. where's the freedom in that? america is doomed to fail from the moment the bill passed, but it's not the bill's fault, it's the people who don't want to try's fault. Like obama said, we didn't get where we are because of the "easy way" and the "easy way" isn't going to get out of debt.
