All of you obamabots should look at the NEW YORK TIMES poll
http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2013/09/26...
Hell, "other" ranks higher in importance than "health care" 22 to 8.
"Disapprove" on every question about obama is higher than "approve".
If healthcare ranks so low, why are you right whiners talking about it & voting on it every week?

Wy don't your heroes Cruz & the fraud Paul work on the economy & jobs instead of tying up the Senate for nearly 24 hours blabbing about healthcare?

When Republicans shut down the government & hurt jobs & the economy because of healthcare, then what?

Like I said, not one of you loony left wingers can read. Here's my post FOR THE THIRD TIME!
""will you guys make up your mind? Do they or don't they pay taxes? we don't need more low skilled Americans. Why do you think Mexico encourages immigration to America? ""
Where do i say "force"? You are sitting there calling someone an idiot when you don't even understand what you are reading. WOW!
Only one hour ago you made this post inviting you "guys" and "not one of you loony left wingers" to answer your dumbass question. Now you claim it was directed to ONE specific person.

"All pay sales tax"
are you sure about that?
Four states have no sales tax and others do not tax food or clothing, so that low-income people pay very little sales tax.

"leosampleanus" my guess is needs a real man and a cold drink to improve her personality, though in "leos" case maybe the operative words are a real woman.
Peace
Is the cold drink for her or the (obviously blind and def) man?

Fresh off his 21-hour filibuster against Obamacare funding, a new poll shows that Sen. Ted Cruz has leapfrogged past his potential rivals for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination and that GOP primary voters trust him more than their party leaders on Capitol Hill.
The Public Policy Polling survey found that 20 percent of those surveyed supported Mr. Cruz, Texas Republican, while 17 percent supported Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, 14 percent supported New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and 11 percent supported former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
“Ted Cruz this week established himself as the grassroots hero of the Republican party,” said Dean Debnam, president of PPP.“The party has more faith in him than their more official leaders like Mitch McConnell and John Boehner.”
Mr. Cruz has climbed eight percentage points in the poll since July.
Ca ca ca Cruz getting a big filibuster bump, but I doubt he's electable. Rand will make a tough candidate to beat; young, smart, good-looking, and more level-headed independent Libertarian appeal than his Dad...

The people who are ripping Ted Cruz just voted to defund O'bamacare---so they can home and say they voted to defund O'bamacare. See what a bunch of scammers the democrats are--they all voted to defund O'bamacare--and now Harry Reid will strip out the language to defund O'bama and send it to the house. This is how democrats roll. Gypsies Tramps and Thieves.

<quoted text>2005? True then e-mutt, with a building boom, hurricanes etc there was a huge need for uncomplicated casual labor.
But the illegal Mexicans began hauling azz beginning around the time DaBammy was sworn in and their numbers continue to shrink even now, to the point where even Lou Dobb's has stopped lying.
Current official estimates range from 10 to 11 million illegal Mexican nationals__probably closer to 8 million. The migrant farm workers remain drastically over counted.
i realize the pisswater makes you think you sound smart, but what exactly does that have to do with my post?

So, with fewer people working and more retiring, who will pay the Social Security and Medicare benefits?
By the way, the last baby boomers won't retire until 2030 and they will be collecting benefits until 2050, so the situation will continue to worsen.
Current retirement ages are unrealistic in the face of increased life expectancy...
...off topic and amusing
