Just remember that when you elect the likes of Donnelly, you are voting for Harry Reid as Majority Leader and Diane Feinstein as a committee chairman. And if they really needed Donnelly's vote, he would cave in exchange for some federal grant.
No Socialist Democrat can be trusted.
If you vote Republican,you vote for the same leadership that created the Bush recession.

Wrong again stupid! The CBO ran the numbers and estimates that Obamacare actually decreases the deficit by around $124 billion over the next ten years while repealing it would increase the deficit by around $210 billion over the same time frame. People are already seeing savings from Obamacare. My son, a junior in college , turns 21 at the end of the month and because of ACA will still be covered under our family plan so that we won't need to pay for separate coverage. The "donut" whole in Medicare part D is shrinking saving seniors money on their prescriptions. People have gotten refund checks from their insurance carriers when who didn't use 80% of the premiums they received on healthcare. Cancer patients on chemo don't have to make the choice of discontinuing lifesaving treatment or going bankrupt because of some arbitrary lifetime cap.
But I guess none of this matters to a self centered sociopath like you.
That's great Dupont. Now instead of worrying about paying for insurance and feeling good you received that socialist state type entitlement, you can instead worry about if your son will be able to find a job after college.

I would rather pay the insurance.

The opportunity cost difference is quite large between paying for insurance for a couple of years and not being able to find a decent job for several years or at all.

Are you going to celebrate your perceived win?

I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.
The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html
The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.
The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place.
They used the debt to pump money into the economy..

They built their house of cards & it led to a near financial meltdown, a housing collapse & the worse recession in 80 years.

Bush started with a balanced budget. He left with economic turmoil while doubling the debt.What the f*ck happened???

You shouldn't worry about trying to educate anyone until you become informed instead of being the total dumbass you are.

<quoted text>Exactly and now Michael Bloomberg who considers himself a Independent now is coming out with an ad targeting senators in Washington DC which includes Indiana Democrat Senator Joe Donnelly who has already publically come out and said he is opposed to the Gun Legislation from Dianne Feinstein and her cronies in the Democrat Party and your right Joe Donnelly knows there is a lot of Democrat Gun owners here in Indiana that oppose any gun legislation from Dianne Feinstein and her cronies in the Democrat Party in Washington DC which is why most Democrats here in Indiana including myself vote Republican in the National Elections and why Indiana goes Red(Republican) mostly.

Wrong stupid! They were expelled or fled for their lives .It always amazes me that the same people who get their panties in a twist over some Hispanics crossing the border to pick crops, wash dishes and clean hotel rooms but don't think that the Palestinians should have had any issue with boatloads of foreigners coming in to take the place over. Oh that's right! Both the Hispanics and the Palestinians are brown people and the invaders were white Europeans. But what the hell, that's been history right? White Europeans have been just walking in and taking over for centuries and to hell with the natives who were already living there.
Right, and no one wanted to "just absorb" the Jews, as Carol thinks the other Arab nations should do. The Palestinians have birthright, to deny that is outrageous.
When the Ethyppian jews wanted to go live in Israel, the women were forced to take birth control.

Anger on the Internet: The Perceived Value of Rant-Sites
Despite evidence that anger is routinely expressed over the Internet via weblogs, social networking Web sites, and other venues, no published research has explored the way in which anger is experienced and expressed online. Consequently, we know very little about how anger is experienced in such settings. Two studies were conducted to explore how people experience and express their anger on a particular type of Web site, known as a rant-site. Study 1 surveyed rant-site visitors to better understand the perceived value of the Web sites and found that while they become relaxed immediately after posting, they also experience more anger than most and express their anger in maladaptive ways. Study 2 explored the emotional impact of reading and writing rants and found that for most participants, reading and writing rants were associated with negative shifts in mood.
....anger expressed online likely leads to damaged relationships and other sorts of interpersonal problems.
http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/full/10.1089...
maladaptive - A type of behavior that is often used to reduce one's anxiety, but the result is dysfunctional and non-productive. For example, avoiding situations because you have unrealistic fears may initially reduce your anxiety, but it is non-productive in alleviating the actual problem in the long term. Maladaptivity is frequently used as an indicator of abnormality or mental dysfunction, since its assessment is relatively free from subjectivity. However, many behaviors considered moral can be apparently maladaptive, such as dissent or abstinence.
almost makes you feel sorry for Galt and his damaged relationships and other sorts of interpersonal problems.
