Left on their own without direction, the Mexicans and Chinese couldn't produce jackshit.
Yes, I do grow some of my own food, or buy it at the farmer's market from small farmers who work their own fields.
And while I don't build houses, I do all my own maintenance.
Meanwhile, the ghetto slugs in our major urban centers produce absolutely nothing of value.

Comparing what works in a relatively small state to what will work in the population and size of the United States is comparing a blade of grass to an oak tree.
Insuring 9% of the uninsured in a population of 6.5 million compared to insuring millions of uninsured in a population of 313 million is a big difference.
9% of 6.5 million is a far cry from a much higher percentage of 313 million.
Now compare the size of Massachusetts - 10,554 sq miles - to the size of the United States - 3,794,100 sq miles. Easy to see the difference.
Is Obamacare really going to cost $1,000,000,000,000.00 - give or take a few million - over the next 10 years?
When you are cut off Social Security or Medicare you will sing a different song.

Only one Republican candidate for president gained a majority of the popular vote in the last 20 years.
Four years of republican lies by birthers.
Now they whine as they will not pay the bills George Bush ran up.
Republicans are pro abortion, just run against in every four years,and do nothing, in power,

Why do you think the rich are spoiled brats? Do you think all of then inhereted the money?
Has it ever crossed your mind that the beauty of our system is that anyone with the education (which can be had with financial aid now), or knack for doing something people want can also become rich if they are willing to take risks and work hard?
It is much more difficut to do in socialist and communist countries and worse yet, the middle class in those countries are no better off than the lower to middle class in the USA.
Does it make you feel better that Obama and the Democrats target the rich, even though many Democrats nthemselves are rich, and using you?
cway is a loser. He puts in 1/2 the effort and he's okay with 1/2 of the results.

1) The ACA reduces payments to hospitals, not doctors. Hospitals trade the lower payments in exchange for 30 million new paying customers.
2) The SGR has NOTHING to do with the ACA.

RealDave just saw his shadow, so it's 6 more weeks of his bigotry, hate and guilt-making.

A pretty face is nothing if you have an ugly heart RealDave. The DNA of your democratic party is inbred with hate, ignorance and racism. Mass killings by democrats in schools and such or Chicago ghetto style killings from your "Culture of Violence" are not by angry old white men conservatives clinging to their guns and religion.

The Senate Intelligence Committee voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to approve John Brennan as President Barack Obama's new CIA director, after the committee resolved a dispute with the White House over access to classified legal opinions on the targeted killings of U.S. citizens overseas.

The vote clears a major hurdle for Brennan, currently Obama's top counter-terrorism adviser. While he seems likely to ultimately win confirmation by the full Senate, his nomination still could face further delays from Republican lawmakers.

The committee vote, at a closed-door meeting, was 12-3, according to Senator Dianne Feinstein, the committee's Democratic chairwoman.

John,
Do you grow your own food? Do you make your own clothes? Did you build your own house?
The management of those industries you mention might be conservative.
However, I don't think the Mexicans who toil in the fields picking fruit have much in common with the conservative cause.
The Chinese serf labor which makes the blue jeans sold at WalMart I'm sure has little positive to say about either their management or that here in the U.S. Both are part of the exploitation process.
Nice try, boys.
Minorities receiving Free Cellphones, Food Stamps, Free or subsidized rent, Free or subsidized school tuition, Line-Jumping in school admissions, Line-Jumping with Affirmative Action, 10 percenters, Set-aside contracts,...(whew)...etc. are high on the Social Totem-Pole of the exploitation process. They are bloodsuckers of capitalism ethics and good morals. Parasites carrying placards demanding "justice" in the form of more freebies.

Nice try, Bigot.

I demand that the Boy Messiah give a Press Conference immediately talking to the nation about black racism amongst black witnesses testifying against white defendants. It's the right thing to do.

"If I had a black daughter as a witness in this case, she would look just like that Sanford Loser", he should say.

It would not surprise me that there are more conservatives than liberals in the armed forces.
The military is supposed to be above politics, but don't believe this for a second. Ever since the Cold War, the ranks have been routinely purged of those deemed "politically incorrect".
Which means the military is a potential powder keg of fascism that could go off at any second.
Then please go sit on one of those powder kegs while badmouthing patriotic service personnel. It would be the patriotic thing to do, Jerk.
