Those who buy insurance as individuals or get insurance thru companies with 9or fewer employees (half of all small businesses) will have access to less costly insurance policies through the exchanges..
How will the cost through the exchanges be controlled to ensure they are "less costly"? Wouldn't this require government control? Government control is government. Ultimately, for what you say to be true, the government has to provide the insurance.
Isn't this the agenda anyway?

No one is denying anything. Collateral damage is a condition of WAR.
The use of chemical weapons against innocent civilians is an entirely different situation.
As long as we are involved in this ridiculous war orchestrated by George W. Bush, I'm for anything that keeps our soldiers safe...that should be our number one priority and drones serve that purpose.
I suggest you watch this 2009 video about Bush's war:

When Bush left office, Al Qaeda and the Taliban were holed up in caves in the tribal regions. Since Obama took office, Al Qaeda and the Taliban are running around the entire country blowing up villages everywhere.
When Bush left office, Al Qaeda was holed up in caves. Since Obama took office, Al Qaeda has established jihad training facilities in multiple countries, and has rebuilt sufficiently to take over countries.

Do you support Obama's intent to get Americans killed helping Al Qaeda acquire the chemical weapons in Syria?

Repetition is necessary for those with thick skulls.
The majority of Americans did not want Obamacare from the beginning and still don't.
Democrats who wrote the darn thing are backtracking.
And there's bee yet another delay because they don't even know how to get the darn thing off the ground.
But you go ahead and wave your little sign.
That you of all people would call anyone else thick headed is hilarious Carol. Only a true bone head would keep trotting out the same crap. Let's look at some numbers developed by a poll done by the Kaiser Health Foundation. The raw numbers show a 43% unfavorable rating as opposed to 35% favorability. However 8% of those indicating an unfavorable opinion did so because they didn't think the ACA went far enough. They don't want it repealed, they want it to include more like a public option. Taking those folks out of the equation leaves those that thinks it goes too far at 35%, hardly a majority and exactly the same as those who approve of the law. That leaves 23% who either don't know enough about the law or refused to answer. As more people start realizing the benefits from the ACA like guaranteed enrolment , no lifetime caps on payments for medical procedures and extended family coverage for families with young adults in college or just starting out, the larger the favorability rating will be.
I'm going to repeat something for the thick skulled like you Carol, the Republicans aren't fighting to repeal the ACA because it's going to fail. If it did then they'd have political capital up the Wazoo. They're petrified that it's going to work and show them up for the liars they are.
You just keep waving your sign Carol. It says "I'm a sociopath!" "I don't care if cancer patients get their treatment s cut off!" "I don't care if childhood cancer survivors can't get insurance as adult!"
"I'm all for big insurance padding their bottom line on other peoples misfortune!"

They had plenty of solutions that were both cost free and practical but none of them gave Obama his big government with more control over us and didn't give the Democrats their strictly partisan vote to pave the way for a single-payer system.
They still have the same solutions. The Democrats didn't want any part of them then and don't want to hear them now.
Unfortunately for them, they own Obamacare now.
Really Carol? Just what were those solutions? You're lying again. The Republicans didn't come up with anything.

So really Flacktard, you keep supporting & defending Republicans & blaming Obama who took office after all the economic disaster hit.
Who destroyed this country?
How about the Republicans under Bush who took us from a balanced budget to the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown, two quagmire wars & doubling the debt.
Who is helping us recover. Certainly NOT Republicans & lying weasels like you & your ilk.
Some American you are, allow your country to suffer instead of help because it might make a Democrat President look good and that will help Democrats in the next election.

Obviously you never read the reports following his procedure.
"Former president George W. Bush successfully underwent a heart procedure in Dallas on Tuesday after doctors discovered a blockage in an artery during his physical, a Bush spokesman said.
“The procedure was performed successfully this morning, without complication, at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital,’’ said Freddy Ford.
Bush, 67, was expected to be discharged Wednesday and RESUME HIS NORMAL SCHEDULE THE FOLLOWING DAY."
For the record, I'm not a big supporter of Michael (Martin Luther)King. I acknowledge that it is well documented that he was a plagiarizer as well as a philanderer. I never supported a holiday named in his honor and will be interested to read his FBI file when it is released to the public in 14 years.
Thank you, for the opinion on King. That file should be very interesting.
As far as resuming a full schedule, they might tell you it's possible, but, it isn't very probable.

Do everyone a favor lardass, next time you post one of your lies, put a "BULLSHYT" warning label on it first. Better yet, keep your piehole shut unless you have something useful to say, liar.
What's the lie of today gonna be, shyt sack?
It wasn't a "conservative candidate". It was an old man in Maine who was "pissed off at the system" and doesn't believe Obama is who he says he is.

He's one person who doesn't represent anyone, and what he said was wrong.

Liberals, on the other hand, are like a herd of buffalo who think and act exactly the same. A herd of blind loyalists is much more concerning than one disgruntled old man.

When Bush left office, Osama Bin Laden was living safely in a large walled villa near Pakistan's equivalent of West Point. Al Qaeda had already spilled out of Afghanistan into Pakistan, North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula and of course Iraq.

Still can't get an answer to this question:

This will be the certain result if Obama orders the US to start a war with Syria and it causes the Assad government to fall. Al Qaeda will acquire the chemical weapons stores and facilities we know to exist in Syria.

To the medieval radical conservatives that ludicrously call themselves "liberals", if you're not Democrat you have to be Republican. The fact that there are multiple sects in opposition to them goes against their execution of the Saul Alinsky principle to make it appear as if "all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other." That "other side" has to have a single identiy. For the Democrats to acknowledge that multiple factions oppose them, they cannot be in compliance with this part of the Saul Alinsky strategy.

This is the only reason why these medieval ultra-conservative loons claim any opposition to them is Republican, and they ignore any and all other labels.

Former President George W. Bush said on Friday that President Barack Obama has a "tough choice" to make in determining a U.S. response to the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons.

"The president's got a tough choice to make," Bush told "Fox & Friends" host Brian Kilmeade. "And if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up."

"I'm not a fan of Mr. Assad," he added. "He's an ally of Iran, and he's made mischief."

When pressed about Congress' and the United Nation's reluctance to proceed with military action, Bush remained tight-lipped with his take.

"The president has to make a tough call, Brian,” Bush laughed.“I know you’re trying to subtly rope me into the issues of the day. I refuse to be roped in. Putting our military in harm's way is the toughest decision a president will make."
