My family is similar to most families in America, half are Republicans and the other half are Democrats. During family functions, the conversation can get pretty lively when Benghazi, IRS, Keystone pipeline, Obama, Hillary Clinton or Eric Holder are raised.

But on one topic the family is united: We all believe Obamacare will never work in its current form. Our insurance premiums have risen 100-300 percent, not to mention the out-of-pocket cost and/or co-pays. Obamacare cannot handle 300 million Americans cheaper or better.

As a prime example, the government cannot handle the 851,000 disabled veterans' claims that have been pending for 12 to 18 months, so how can they treat the millions of us who need serious health care at a reasonable cost. If the government cannot handle the VA problems in a timely fashion, what makes you think Obamacare would be handled differently?
