The majority apparently don't agree with them as 75% are "dissatisfied".

Let's hope they prove it next time then.

It's creating quite a stir.
My concern is Americans have become too complacent to demand difficult and necessary changes. The polls indicate the vast majority believe we're going in the wrong direction, but 1 in 4 Americans don't even know ACA is the law of the land.
It's hard to imagine so many Americans aren't aware of such a strict partisan legislation that will affect them so profoundly.
It's the complacency that really concerns me the most.
Unless there is more of an outcry on the part of younger voters and minorities as well as the middle class demanding major changes, our fate is sealed.
I'm pretty convinced this president and his administration think they are insulated and immune from the growing unrest because of the liberal media's protection and what is becoming a disturbing complacency.
We'll know if I'm right or not come next November and in 2016. Heaven knows, I hope I'm not.
Good morning, flack.
Oh I think most of them are about to get a rude awakening in a couple of months. The tide is changing, although slowly. CNN is coming around to be a more effective journalistic news source.Even PMSNBC is slowly turning away from the blind loyalty. With three years to go the cracks are showing and will only widen with time.

Why would anybody work 40 hours per week for an extra $300 per month in a society that glorifies freeloaders?
Because that 900 has a lifetime limit. Because people want to work. With work is a chance for advancement.

No one glorifies those who need help. That is all in your demented little head.

One thing you forgot to mention was the fact that we were on the verge of losing the Cold War, which would have meant the same thing that happened to the Soviet Union would have happened to us instead, and Reagon led us from the verge of defeat to victory.
Perhaps you would have some credibility if you included things that are consistent with actual US history in your posts.
We were never on the verge of losing the Cold War, the Soviet system collapsed from within, it was a bad system.

Besides we were discussing Reagan's defeat of the middle class.

No, Homer, you keep confusing "debunked" with "denial".

But I don't blame you. I blame the liberal media for wanting to keep you in the dark.

Well, actually, I do blame you for choosing to stay there.

BTW, Reagan's economic plan trickled all the way down to the Clinton administration.

Clinton also moved to the right of center following the lead of his Republican Congress. Smart move.

A person blindly supporting someone who was mentored by Frank Marshal Davis, was promoted by Vernon Jarrett, began his political career in the home of William Ayers, and puts Vallerie Jarrett in the office immediately adjacent to the Oval Office is calling someone else a "friggin' communist".
It doesn't get much funnier than that.
If I meet someone like that, not likely, I will pass that along. You are still a friggin' Communist wanting to ban all guns.

The flat tax would get rid of all deductions. Just getting rid of the deduction for mortgage interest alone would be very difficult when you have 60 percent of Americans who are homeowners and who depend on that deduction. The deduction is capitalized into the value of homes. If you lose the deduction for mortgage interest, housing prices would fall, and how popular would that be? Then, getting rid of the exclusion for health insurance – that would greatly increase taxes on workers or businesses. It’s all just a pipe dream.

Per the morals and standards of the times Oblama's mom was a slut, even a black minister said so. I'll grant you none of us get to pick our parents.
We are today not 50 years ago. You defend the bigot thinking back then? Yes, inter racial marriage is accepted today as it should always have been.

To call Obama's mother a slut today because she married a black man just means your attitude is the same as the bigots 50 years ago.

Horsecrap, we'll pay for it. Get your head out of your butt. Obamacare sucks, that's why anyone and everyone who can get an exemption is either getting one or trying to get one.
You do realize that as a federal employee, you would get a portion of your health insurance paid for by the federal government,your employer, right?

What Congress passed was that their health insurance benefit options would be the exchanges. The Same % paid by the federal government.

My God you are one dumb sh*t.
