Why the G.O.P. is NOT Really Opposed to Obamacare
To encourage enough Americans to apply for such health insurance so that a big and representative pool of insureds could be established, there would have to be tax penalties for those individuals who do not choose to participate. For private insurance companies to provide the actual policies, such a pool would be an absolute necessity. Without it, policies would have to be subject to cancellation, frequent rate increases and coverage limitations, the kinds of things with which the Act does away. In a nutshell, that’s probably what a Republican plan might do.
So that is why they quietly are not really opposed to Obamacare, despite their blustering about the Act's horrible technological roll-out difficulties and griping from those whose cheap, substandard and sometimes worthless, health insurance policies were cancelled because they did not meet the minimum standards of the Act.

It will be a sad day when there no longer are newspapers to read in the morning. That day is coming. Although the paper I read is also fully available to me on line, it just isn't the same as a real newspaper and I wouldn't want to spill coffee or get crumbs on my smart phone or tablet.
