it's not like you can't find a transcript on BillO's site, so before you start going on about the gripe of the day, you might want to be careful about sounding just like BillO's show from the night before.
if it sounds like it came from the mouth of a FOX talking head, you just used a FOX source.
Sometimes you learn something from "BillO's" shows and interviews.

You'd rather be told what not to think.

How do you ppl sleep at night, it's beyond belief some of the statements you make. Iraq was a monumental mistake, just like Vietnam yet despite the heated advice from Colin Powell not to go there. Bush and his gang decided to go anyway, so they had Powell march into the UN with the used car salesman pitch destroying his political career at the same time. It's not Manning who should be on trial its Bush, Cheney & Rumsfield for sending Americans to die with no strategic purpose. If Saddam has been there right now, there would be no car bombs every week, Iran would be more worried about coming over their border than building nukes & Syria might have behaved as well. There is nothing to thank Bush for, he is only worthy of a shoe being thrown at him. The Iraq act was to support democracy in Iraq not Invade it. Did not Obama support the same for Egypt and I did not see the troops land there.
Unfortunately for you, Afghanistan is more like another Vietnam - Obama's "right war". The Iraq War ended before Obama took office.

So think again, oh clueless one.

The subsidies were for individuals too poor to purchase insurance or to support small businesses that wanted to set up their own employee insurance plans.
An individual plan on the exchange will be more expensive than a company plan.

How much do you think a young person earning minimum wage can afford to spend on medical insurance that they probably don't need?

You shouldn't hit O'Reilly so hard. He is actually more supportive of Obama than most. A classic RINO.

You are daffy because you can not even read and understand your own links. The Senate vote was 'non-binding' which means dunderhead that voting for 'repeal' was a symbolic , sympathy vote for the Big Medical Care Devices companies who want to keep more of their billion dollars in profits. "... others pointed out that the vote was nonbinding, amounting to budget guidance. The actual repeal of the tax is far from a done deal, and things might have come out quite differently if senators had to confront spending cuts or tax increases to fill in a 10-year,$30-billion revenue hole that would leave." ... "Last night's purely symbolic vote has no bearing on the future of the Affordable Care Act and its implementation," said spokesman Brad Carroll." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/22/demo...

Ms. Klobuchar said Minnesota contains 400 medical device companies that employ 35,000 people, amounting to “one of the bright spots in America’s economy.” She said the 2.3 percent tax stifles innovation and threatens America’s position as the top exporter of medical devices.

“While I’m proud to be a champion of [the health care law], I believe that the medical device tax is just not the way to pay for it,” said Sen. Al Franken, Minnesota Democrat, during floor debate.

Ms. Klobuchar and Mr. Franken have joined Sens. Bob Casey Jr., Pennsylvania Democrat, and Joe Donnelly, Indiana Democrat, in sponsoring Mr. Hatch’s bill.

By the way, a "10-year,$30-billion revenue hole" is chump change for Obamacare. The monthly deficit will be far higher than $30 billion.

For anyone who does not think the law increases medical cost. This is Obama's comment on medical devices being exempt

"It should contribute in the same way that hospitals, drug companies and health insurance plans are also taking cuts or paying higher taxes."

Listen dunderhead this law was repealed.

"The Community Living Assistance Services and Supports Act (or CLASS Act) was a U.S. federal law, enacted as Title VIII of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The CLASS Act would have created a voluntary and public long-term care insurance option for employees,[1][2][3] but in October 2011 the Obama administration announced it was unworkable and would be dropped.[4] The CLASS Act was repealed January 1, 2013"

There are many parts of Obamacare which is non-workable. Piece by piece it will be dismantled for a variety of reasons including angry voters who decide they where lied too.

Obama himself has stated several times Kenya was his birthplace. Michelle has said it in a speech at a womens group meeting in 2010, that Obama was born in Kenya, called it his homeland. His Aunt said he was born there and that she was present at his birth. How many times does it have to be said before people will listen? Is his Aunt lying, the one he calls Auntie? I do not think so. Many people there say he was. Even a big sign at the village with his name and face calling this his birthplace. Why do you think they are not going there?

Obama is a Kenyan and people have known that for a long time. He should be removed from office and all bills signed and executive orders signed must be null and void
