@snowwolf I recall little of reasonable debates beyond a lot of Republicans vowing to vote against it and anything else Obama was offering up at the time. I guess if half the room wants to dismantle something, that sort of ruins any sense of philanthropy it was meant to have. It's also difficult, because I had the exact opposite experience that you did; my mother was finally able to go the dentist and have a tooth that had been hurting her for more than a month removed, and since then has been well treated for her health problems (she's in her sixties now). Being a heart patient, I was eager to get some sort of medical care as well. So, it's rather difficult for me not to be extremely happy for it. But, again, I'm still hoping for "free" medicine the likes of which only certain Europeans know.
