Obamacare list goes big on Facebook
Every day, the Daily Dot finds something that people on Facebook are sharing and, in turn, shares it with you—with a little explanation. Here's today's share.
Hours after the Supreme Court found President Obama’s Affordable Healthcare Act constitutional, its supporters are taking a victory lap on Facebook.
More than 8,000 have already shared a list called “10 Things You Now Get to Keep With Obamacare.”
It cites ten benefits of the act, like "Access to health insurance for 30 million Americans,"
and "Insurers' [sic] cannot discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions."
“we have had mandatory auto insurance in the country for a long time with jail sentences for non compliance. This is a great law and thrilled with the SCOTUS,” wrote Lindasue Smollen.
“My word, is that all that Obamacare is about?” David Harrison asked sarcastically. “To listen to the attacks on it, I thought it must be a plan to uncouple the United States from it's moorings between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and tow it across to China.”
Of course, not everyone was celebrating. Plenty of others came to the page to spout conspiracy theories.
“Don't forget the death panels and those of us who work, paying for those who will not,” wrote Melody Potter. “I cannot believe that people fall for this burlary of our freedom.”
“Part of the problem here is that we have 3 female Supreme Court Justices who should not even be there..... They are only there to fill an affirmative action type of quota,” added Guy Estergall.
