There is a more common sense approach to making health care costs more affordable and providing care to the truly needy at the same time without the IRS knowing if you need a colonoscopy.
You are handing over your private and personal medical information to the government and the IRS on a silver platter.
How many lemons have you bought in the past?
(You DO know Obamacare is going to leave more uninsured than are uninsured presently?)
In the Socialist Obama regime, there is no right to privacy.

So yes, such a man does scare me. In fact, he should scare all Americans.
YOU were talking about Romney, remember?

If a vote on presidential competence and honesty was taken today, Bush would annihilate Obama, no contest.

You're not even being honest anymore. Or;Don't you know that the bulk of what is being implemented in Obamacare is being left to the states to distribute and administer?

<quoted text>Don't call republicans in Congress. They're trying to pass a bill to make you pay more in student fees. "Yesterday, House Republicans passed a bill making student loans more expensive. You read that right, more expensive.
That's just crazy.
More than ever, Americans need a college degree to find a job. And Republicans just made it even more difficult. Meanwhile, the Wall Street corporations and the big banks who helped crash this economy are being handed sweetheart deals.
Call your Senators today and ask them to support the Elizabeth Warren Student Loan Plan.
Unless the Senate takes action, student loan rates are set to jump dramatically on July 1st, while the big banks are handed money at an almost 900% discount." Check this out: http://www.opednews.com/Diary/Yesterday-House...
Far too many young people are spending far too much money and incurring far too much debt to obtain worthless college degrees from third-rate colleges.

Community colleges are a prime example, granting absolutely worthless degrees.

We have created a society where most waitresses have college degrees, because they have no skills and cannot find a job that requires their "education."

The idea that a college degree is essential is absurd, when skilled trades earn far more than many college graduates.

Why continue to embarrass yourself babe?

You had a better understanding of how ObamaCare actually rolls out three years ago than you do presently__your just throwing sht on the wall.

A common sense approach to repairing a weel known problem was overlooked for decades until Hillary Clinton attempted to get the ball rolling. She was laughed off the stage by both parties before detailing her disappointment in Living History and elsewhere.

Perhaps you remember the industry sponsored Harry and Louise TV ads.

BushCo completely ignored health care reform.

Go tell that to Exxon-Mobile who deprived the resident citizens of Arkansas their 1st Amendment rights to view the damage and clean-up of their private property , censored freedom of the press,locked down the entire town etc. "There’s one Exxon gas station in Mayflower, Ark.

Before last Friday, that’s likely as close as Mayflower residents got to the multinational oil and gas behemoth ExxonMobil. But after the Pegasus Pipeline burst last Friday, sending thousands of gallons of tar-sands oil into the Northwoods neighborhood, the company became omnipresent in this small town of 2,200 people."

None whatsoever. Neither free speech nor civil liberties.

This administration is not even trying to break the law or ignore the constitution discretely anymore. It's a brazen last-ditch effort to fundamentally transform this nation and play dumb while doing it.

Hard to believe anyone could be so easily duped among us and, yet, there are too many even now.

Yes. I'm sure that you're right. NOT! LOL Bush43 crashed the economy and nearly spent us into bankruptcy by borrowing heavily from Communist China. Bush43 almost succeeded in making Khrushchev's prediction that Communism would 'sell the rope that capitalism hangs itself with' come true.

lol!!!! Riiiight.... the guy who tells on group of people he doesn't care for 47% Americans, then changes his mind when he's called out on it and changes the claim to 100%.

And if bushie boy was really that good, he should have helped McCain AND Romney do what you claim.

Instead, he runs and hides instead and the GOP doesn't want him around.

Curious how the real world is different from your world.
