Apart from concerns about statism and the growth of the federal government, the main reason to be against Obamacare is economic. It is such a poorly conceived idea and poorly written law that it has already hamstrung the US economy, and will end up burdening most the very people who are already hardest hit by the economic downturn. One would think that liberals, of all people, would be appalled that such a terribly thought-out bill would have become law–if one honestly wanted to bring socialized medicine to America, surely there are much better ways to do so. Obamacare is a Frankenstein’s monster which will in the end run the country into the ground and impoverish its people, yet liberals think it is some kind of victory. In every way, from every political perspective, Obamacare is simply a bad idea.
On the bright side, because of Obamacare, in the future, “liberalism” will become synonymous for incompetence and overreach, and “progressives” will become synonymous for reactionary Luddites. Of course, the progressive in chief has already crossed that bridge.
