I think the Rethugs on this thread have certainly won the right to be referred to as the "commie reich".

Even their beloved Rand Paul is disgusted by their rush to embrace Putin:

"A recent op-ed by Russian President Vladimir Putin has prompted me to respond. While his position that the Syrian conflict can and should be settled through a political and diplomatic solution is correct, virtually everything else in his writing should be taken to task. So I shall.

I begin with Mr. Putin’s disagreement regarding the exceptionalism of the United States of America. I could not more strongly disagree with him. While he is correct that God created every human being as an equal in His eyes, clearly the results of each of our efforts on this earth, individually and collectively, are not equal.

America’s exceptionalism is rooted in our founding documents and values. From the rights granted by our creator, but guaranteed by our Constitution. We should not shy away from saying so, especially when our actions are in keeping with this exceptional founding, as they were this week in our debate over going to war in Syria. Our constitutional checks and balances were on full display, largely resulting in the, at least temporary, halting of a rush to war."

The federal government will be paying the insurance companies a 'tax credit' for insurance but if the taxpayer understates their income they, not the insurance company, has to repay the difference. The federal government is demanding that certain coverages must be in the insurance to qualify for the exchanges. Things that most people don't need or want. That is hardly free market. It will be the biggest boondoggle ever perpetrated on the American people if allowed to stand.
Wow, if a person cheats, they have to pay. Who should pay?

Nearly every state has minimum coverage standards & have for years. Why haven't you have a fit about them?

The idea of insuring the uninsured is to make healthcare more accessible & provide payment to providers when these people go to the doctor.

People buying private insurance from private doctors & private hospitals. Free market solutions.

Just minutes after the Washington DC police chief said that two shooters might still be on the loose in the Navy Yard mass murders, President Obama held a previously scheduled event to defend his economic record.

The president opened his remarks by condemning a shooting that has reportedly left six dead and as many as 10 injured.

President Barack Obama is mourning what he called "yet another mass shooting" in the United States that he says took the life of American patriots.

Obama promised to make sure, quote, "whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible."

The president then went into a lengthy and familiar defense of his economic record as events surrounding the Navy Yard murders continued to unfold. Obama criticized Republicans in advance of the upcoming budget battle, mocked Mitt Romney as having lost after calling for a repeal of ObamaCare, and talked about the economy he inherited from George W. Bush:

President Barack Obama says the nation's financial system is `safer' five years after the collapse of a Wall Street giant plunged the nation deeper into a recession.

Obama marked the fifth anniversary of the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers by surrounding himself with Americans the White House says have benefited from the administration's economic and banking policies.

Obama says his administration has laid a "new foundation" for a stronger economy. But he admits that the benefits are not being felt by many middle class Americans.

While the president spoke, law enforcement officials just a few miles away took care of the wounded and dead, and attempted to track down two additional shooters suspected of being involved.

Rand Paul is absolutely correct. The only thing that Putin is correct about is Syria.

So that leaves us with Obama, who was wrong on Syria and detests American exceptionalism, preferring equality in mediocrity.

Are you really this dumb? Russia is a long-standing ally of Iran. In fact, Moscow built Iran's first nuclear power station and has supplied it with anti-aircraft defenses.
Putin is meeting with President Rouhani to discuss increasing arms sales to Iran in the event of a U.S. military strike against Syria. We haven't had good relations with Iran for over 30 years. Meeting at the United Nations is absolutely the correct course of action..
IMO, Obama is pulling the strings and Putin is dancing to his tune in order to avoid a military strike that would destroy Russia's Navy installation in Tartus, Syria.
Russia has sold the United States weapons also--as recently as let's say...last year. For the past year, the O'bama administration has been criticizing Russia for selling weapons to Syria and blocking the United Nations from condemning the conflict that’s killed more than 10,000 people. Yet at the same time, the U.S. has been buying military helicopters from an unlikely source: the same Russian-government-owned company that Congress says is arming the Syrian regime. Since May 2011, the Pentagon has paid Rosoboronexport $411 million for 21 Mi-17 helicopters.

The Democrats' Marxist CRA program collapsed the economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank.
The Democrats took over all the purse strings of government with a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit, and a total debt of 8.5 trillion. Since the Democrats increased the deficit ONE THOUSAND PERCENT, and doubled the debt.
The debt increases 8 percent every year, the part of the economy that pays for everything is stagnant, they have no plan whatsoever to stop borrowing.
And, if that isn't insane enough for you, they want to add ObamaKare on top of that.
The economic collapse was caused by the Democrats.
The Democrats doubled the debt.
The Democrats increased the deficit one thousand percent.
And the Democrats don't have any plan to fix this.
The only plan the Democrats have is to institute some Marxist health care system, and this is after Marxism has been proven over and over and over and over again to be a failed ideology.
Just how stupid are you people?
Even without ObamaKare, it is certain for the government to collapse.
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
You have to identify a source of money to answer this question.
"OMG OMG OMG CRA CRA OMG OMG"

You people are dumber than sh*t.

Funny how you keep running from this question.

What law did the Democrats pass in the first 10 months of 2007 that created the Bush recession.

Think hard, there Chummy & let me know you are man enough to answer it.

Fox News’ Krauthammer: Cruz leading Republican ‘suicide caucus’ by opposing Obamacare

“It would be over a cliff for the GOP,” Krauthammer said on Sunday’s edition Inside Washington.“I admire the sincerity and the passion of those who don’t want to pass the budget unless you get rid of Obamacare, but it is utterly impossible in the real world. And the only thing it will do is to undo all the gains the Republicans have made over the past year, and undo their very real chances of having great successes next year.”

“I think it’s a suicide caucus, and I hope enough of them will realize that so that [House Speaker John Boehner] will have a majority, even if it’s a bare majority, to pass a continuing resolution,” he added.

NPR’s Nina Totenberg pointed out that while Obamacare was unpopular, polls showed that Americans did not support defunding the law.

“So, they don’t even have that going for them,” Totenberg observed.“This would be a suicide mission, I think, for Republicans.”

Its not that any of the Constitutional Conservatives on this thread love Putin so much, because we dont. What we DO love is his absolute political manhandling of your idol. The pagan idolatry phags like you, swilly, chimpy dave, and lchln shower upon obama is absolutely unrealistic and sickening. ALL politicians suck, so its even MORE disgusting when you see a group of fairies swinging from his nuts.
