House Republicans have been wanting changes to Obamacare as a condition to raise the debt ceiling and reopen the government. Why do Republicans object to Obamacare? They support things even worse–Medicare. And back when Bush the president they expanded Medicare to levels that LBJ could never have imagined. Although Republicans may not believe in the federal government forcing Americans to purchase health insurance for themselves, they do believe in forcing some Americans to pay for the health insurance or health care of other Americans through programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP.
