Not businesses with under 50 employees
Of those businesses with more than 50, the vast majority already offer health care.
The only people that are afraid are Republicans. They know the longer it remains the more people will like it & the stats will prove it works. The more Republicans will look like idiots.
Why else would Republicans want to repeal it or defund it.
If its going to fail so miserably and obviously why wouldn't the GOP just let it play out and fail? Its their best chance to regain supremacy over the D's. It'd at least be the equivalent of Clinton's impeachment and that worked out very well for them.

It's going to be interesting watching this cat fight develop.
I hope it splits. I also hope that liberals will eventually recognize the growing neocon wing of the Democratic Party and split off as well.

We only have one more party than Communist China and we think we're AWESOME for it.

Also, LoisLane59 refuses to admit that Chuck Hagel has a far more extensive libertarian public record than either Rand or Ron Paul on opposing U S military interventionism . Chuck Hagel hangs a picture of John Adams on his War Department office wall. "America, with the same voice which spoke herself into existence as a nation, proclaimed to mankind the inextinguishable rights of human nature, and the only lawful foundations of government. America, in the assembly of nations, since her admission among them, has invariably, though often fruitlessly, held forth to them the hand of honest friendship, of equal freedom, of generous reciprocity. She has uniformly spoken among them, though often to heedless and often to disdainful ears, the language of equal liberty, of equal justice, and of equal rights. She has, in the lapse of nearly half a century, without a single exception, respected the independence of other nations while asserting and maintaining her own. She has abstained from interference in the concerns of others, even when conflict has been for principles to which she clings, as to the last vital drop that visits the heart. She has seen that probably for centuries to come, all the contests of that Aceldama the European world, will be contests of inveterate power, and emerging right. Wherever the standard of freedom and Independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be. But she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own."... "[America's] glory is not dominion, but liberty.

I would argue that no member of Congress has a more consistent libertarian record than Ron Paul. Carol's not libertarian anyway, the idea of not having a Daddy government scares the beejeesus out of her.

One of his dodges is to print more money which just makes it worth less each time and it's just more to send to Mexico anyway.

Republicans want Islamists released

Two U.S. senators urged Egypt’s military-backed government to release detained members of the Muslim Brotherhood before starting negotiations with the group, warning of worsening relations “if Egypt is not moving to democracy.”

But Egypt’s interim presidency denounced “foreign pressure” in a sign of its growing impatience with international mediations.

Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham spoke after meeting with top military and civilian leaders in Cairo as part of a flurry of international efforts to resolve a standoff between the government and supporters of the ousted president, Mohammed Morsi.

This is their problem from top to bottom. The t-p especially is trying to sell Americans a bill of goods that don't exist, doesn't benefit them, or only benefits a few.
They're still very much viewed as obstructionist to this day, and it doesn't appear they want to change or make any effort to change that perception anytime soon.
Dong, if your gay figures here are correct (I think you probably just pulled them out of thin air) then how do you explain baruck odumbo being underwater by 5-8 points (depending on the poll)?

No moron, the original stimulus was just a start and it should have been much larger but it was what Obama could get. Our infrastructure needs a lot more work and that would put people to work but the GOP doesn't want to hear about it. They'd just rather keep wasting time and taxpayer money with ideological legislation that will never see the light of day.

Who was supposed to pay for president nobama's stimulus program? Oh what the hell, just borrow the funds. Who cares who is going to repay the loan? Will it ever be repaid, the near trillion dollars already pissed away? The stimulus program, an apt description of wasted dollars.

The libtard Democrats don't care about debt because the "assume" someone else will pay for it, but like with Greece, the socialists eventually run of of the rich and other people money.

"Greece to tax annual income of €26,000 with 45%!"

Just wait until these greedy little Democrat losers have that happen to them. They will care very quickly.

When are you dumbasses going to realize that Obama is NEVER going to run for office again in his life!

Mr Eed likes when his Representatives play games instead of trying to help America.
Republicans pass bills they know will go nowhere & hope that Reid puts them up to a vote so they can use the votes as fodder in the next campaign.
Perhaps one day, Mr Eed will put his country ahead of his party. Mr Eed bitches about government run programs but gladly participates in them. Pathetic
"real dumb"
Pathetic? You are.
If the bills are so bad hairless reed refuses to allow a vote on it would be in the democrats favor to reject them, then democrats could brag about bad legislation they killed. But no, hairless is afraid they will pass so he buries them.
