What? We know regular government employees have no say.

Poll: Less than 3 percent of federal workers want to join Obamacare

Does obamacare mean I have to give up my current health insurance? That would really piss me off. All the doctor's offices we go to say "wow, that's really good insurance"

I don't know. Why not read the ~900 page bill and find out?

If you are 26 and under, you can stay on your parent's health insurance. That was in the first few pages.

I did it in 2.

Polls are easily manipulated - especially when they're taken by a tiny rightwing website like fedsmith.

1800 likes on Facebook, and an average of 6 replies to their "articles" on their official website.

Truly an accurate representation of the federal workforce

So tell more about what is in the health care bill.

I'm too busy beating down horseshit anti-obamacare propaganda.

Read it yourself (or find a rightwing website that lies about what's in it).

There's no issue with the original article and poll. They honestly reported it as less than 3% of about 2500 responding readers wanted to switch to the new system.

Daily caller somehow extrapolated this to reflect all federal employees.

I started reading it and downloaded it to finish up in my free time. So tell me why your, and countless others' opinions are worth my time if they carry no weight?

Is it because your man Obama backed it?

As I've said before, I don't automatically feel a strong repugnance for universal health care, in theory it sounds marvelous, but that's just that...a theory. I would prefer a sound and well thought out plan in place before I'm convinced it is something we should implement. So far I have yet to hear anyone draw anything from the bill to support their argument that sounds convincing.

How can you support something you have no or not complete knowledge of? This baffles me.

I don't support it. I just don't care.

Why does the republican party try so hard to beat it down if none of you know what's in it?

Not Republican and you know that. I would do the same thing to any Republican-backed bill that was potentially such high significance and would/could affect the lives of many.

Why was something passed in the first place if very few, if any, know it's entire contents?

Thats a great question.

Perhaps for the same reason that so many people who don't know what's in it are trying to repeal it?
