The bitter fight over Obamacare should not surprise anyone. Legislation governing an issue that is of such importance to every citizen must have the support of a large majority. Obamacare was passed despite the objection of a significant part of the citizenry and without a single vote from the opposition party in either the House or the Senate. It was filled with bribes to individual Senators and favors (exceptions) to special interest groups. It was 2,700 pages long and therefore not read or understood by citizens or even the elected representatives who had to vote for its passage.  Proponents used chicanery to claim that it was cost neutral - it was never close to being so. Parliamentary sleight of hand was needed for final passage. How can anyone expect legislation that could only be born under these vile circumstances to ever be accepted in anything close to its present form? At a bare minimum, significant changes are needed.
