You are not only a racist but devoid of even junior high common sense. Sounds like the time is near to put the wheels back on the trailer and head north to Canada. America is definitely for you.

This medieval retrograde thinking has no place in our society or the 21st century.

You are in psychological denial, a masterpiece of banal self-delusion, completely untethered from reality.

The GOP has fomented greater division among the populace, spurring class warfare and widening racial divisions.

You got to be kidding. 911 was one of Bush'biggest screw ups.
Bush did not respond when informed of the airplane hitting the twin tower. Instead he kept reading a book to some kids with a stupid look on his face.
He did the samething when the 2nd airplane hit the twin tower. Afterwards his staff looked at him in disbelief as continue to read to the kids and after a few moments his staff had to drag him out of the classroom to address this terrorist attack on american soil.
His follow this up blaming and starting a war with Iraq who had nothing to do with it.
He fail to catch BIn Laden after 8 years who is to blame for the terrorist attack.
President Obama got Bin Laden in his first term.
And Benghazi is just another attempt from Fox, Reichwing Republican Racist and the haters to bring down this President. It is nothing but spin. There is nothing there.
Why did the Clinton administration let bin_laden get away?

I'm sure that a person on welfare doesn't even collect that amount. What we pay in taxes, you probably don't earn in a year.
But, continue on dummy.

The bigger cost will be put on employers who will be required to offer insurance plans if they have 51 employees or more. Field said most large companies already provide coverage, but the change will be bigger for medium-sized companies.
There is some concern that the fees employers have to pay may be transferred either to the employee or the customer through more expensive services and goods. Whether the ACA will cut into salaries is unknown right now.
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-204_162-57546684/...
Everytime the government adds more fees and taxes, that's usually what happens. It gets passed on to the customer and, in this case, the employee.
First, companies with fewer than 50 employees are exempt.

Second, as an employer, I am sick & tired of my rates being higher because of those who use the system but do not pay. These are the uninsured.

How many companies do you know that offer no health insurance.

The ACA will save money for smaller businesses. Especially those with less than 10 employees (the majority of small businesses).

The ACA will save big money for those who purchase insurance as individuals.

How will your party broaden it's base? Pretend to like the Latinos now? Pretend to care about womens rights? Drop the rape and anti abortion and anti gay marriage stances?
Let's see this horse and pony show.
We don't have to pretend to be anything other than what we've always been. The party who holds traditional values and believes government unchecked is the enemy.

We just have to reach out and get that message across in 2016 better than we did this time around. It should be a lot easier to do after four years of Democrats getting their way.

Marco Rubio is already preparing to be the face of the Republican party in 2016. But I'm sure you'll find some way to crucify a Latino who disagrees with your ideology too.

Change the channel and try a few facts for a change.
Obama wants to extend the current, historically low tax rates for 95% of Americans. He has only proposed raising, by 3%, I might add, taxes on the portion of income over $250,000.
Don't seat it, that's not you.
In addition, in the real world, where facts exist, there is zero correlation between nominally raising taxes on higher incomes and job creation.
You think someone is going to stop working, or skip on opening a a promising business over the prospect of an additional 3% ONLY ON THE INCOME OVER $250,000?
The only reason those taxes will rise on all Americans come Jan 1 will be because the Tea Turds in Congress refuse to budge. Obama has already suggested passing a bill dealing with keeping the tax rate in place for 95% of Americans now. Then fight over the cuts on higher incomes later.
Of course crybaby is wetting his pants because he has no control over over the legitimate rape crowd, who are still passing legislation to overturn Obamacare, in spite of losing the 30 previous attempts.

Looks like there's been plenty of ugly from both sides - but most of it is reactionary to others' posts and I don't think it represents the majority of moderate America. If you (and congress) could get over the toxic idea that dems and reps are "teams", 3/4 of the nation's problems would never have been created.

Single women may be a lost cause. That's what I said. They depend on big government to be their false sense of security.

However, in four more years, that, too, could change.

Basically, Republicans just have to do is bide their time for four more years and get out of Obama's way.

The Bush's are not anti Latino. Jeb's wife is Mexican; his son is quite attractive which often happens when you mix races and ethnicities. Jeb speaks fluent Spanish. I'm not a fan of Jeb, but, he has been warning his party about remaining the good old boy racist white party; they should listen to him.
The pandering to the religious rightwing has to stop. Mitt lied about everything, and no matter how many millions he spent, people voted against him. I'm so proud of the American people who won against the corporations and billionaires.

The civil war is an apt analogy, considering the election results. Mittens won the Confederate states, where Obama won only 10~15 % of the White vote. Looks like the GOP wants to return US to an earlier time, say 1850.
And the blue states, ah home of thine heartland, wanted to return to Depression era days.

WTH is the matter with dem up dar these days anyway...it appears they've gone totally mad, consumed by incomptance of too much regulatory ailments resulting from the subtle reins of commieticism.
