Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

no mandate, just a tax...an uncollectable tax...
Exactly.
Those who can't afford to pay for health insurance also can't afford to pay income taxes. So, if they can't afford to pay income taxes, how can they afford to pay the ObamaKare "tax"?
The end result is, it's meaningless. That was nothing more than a ruse to make it appear as if there was some penalty for irresponsible behavior, such as not having health insurance. Those irresponsible people are being subsidized by the government anyway. The "requirement" for them to have health insurance will also be subsidized by the government... i.e. us.
ObamaKare is nothing more than another Marxist welfare program. And, just like every other Marxist idea that has ever existed, it is like a cancer to anything it affects.

Here's A Tally Of Which House Republicans Are Ready To Fund The Government, No Strings Attached
In the hours since the government shut down, House Republicans have slowly but steadily been coming forward to say they're ready to pass a bill to fund the government with no strings attached.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the number of those Republicans hit 17 -- the magic number. If all 200 Democrats stick together and team up with those Republicans, they have the votes to pass a clean funding bill. Of course, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) would have to be willing to put that bill on the floor in the first place. But if he did, the votes appear to be there for passage, at which point the bill would sail through the Senate and be signed by President Barack Obama, ending the shutdown.
Here's who those House Republicans are, and why they say they're done with trying to force through provisions to delay or defund Obamacare in order to keep the government running. We'll update the list when, or if, more come in.

Understand that and the differences of opinion on the program can be understood.


Yes but there was extensive debate & you lost. There were court cases and you lost. Then there was the 2012 Presidential race & you lost.

I guess the new order in DC will be to refuse to do anything until Obamacare is repealed, abortion made illegal, Christianity the official religion, and bazookas & assault rifles are free for second graders.

This is not how Congress is supposed to work.

Why the Shutdown Looks So Bad for the GOP
Not only are they taking the blame, but the Republican party’s divisions, fissures, and personal animosities are taking center stage.
During the Great Polling Disconnect of 2012, the Obama campaign, the press, and a number of pollsters thought that Barack Obama would win his second presidential election. Republicans and the Romney campaign were equally convinced the polls were flawed: The electorate would behave differently on Election Day.
There was a clear loser in that experiment. We're facing a similar test now with the government shutdown. Public opinion polls show overwhelming opposition to the GOP strategy. Republican Sen. John McCain tweeted a Quinnipiac poll Tuesday morning that shows 72 percent of Americans oppose Congress “shutting down major activities of the federal government” as a way to stop the Affordable Care Act from going into effect.
For the conservatives pushing the showdown over the president's health care plan, those numbers are either wrong or changeable. We're about to find out which side is right.
In the first hours of the shutdown, the terrain looks very bad for Republicans. It's amazing how consistent the polls have been about linking a confrontation over the Affordable Care Act to funding of the government. While polls show the public disapproves of the law, it has consistently told pollsters it is not in favor of tying government operations to defunding the health care plan. In addition to the Quinnipiac poll, the polls from CBS, CNN, CNBC, National Journal, and Kaiser show this. As GOP Sen. Jeff Flake said, Republicans have found the one gambit less popular than Obamacare.

You watch the black out media. Have they covered Obama putting a rope around a war monument in D.C. in the great outdoors because of the shutdown?

And asking what president in their right mind would do that?

Just curious.

You are the idiot. Story in today's Spokane Spokesman Review. A certain Penny S, a resident's story was part of a feature article. They purchased a new health insurance policy cost $1674 per month. But she said thanks to the government subsidy of $1371 they would only pay "$301 per month.
Who is paying for that subsidy "pdumb". The tax payer. You should get in line, I am sure you would qualify for 100% free taxpayer subsidized health care.

I did email Senator Cruz this morning and implored him to let the Democrats own Obamacare at this point. I praised him for his convictions and determination to put the American people first but said no one would blame him or the Republicans for walking away after stressing it was the Senate Democrats who refused to negotiate - not them.

I also said this is the silver lining many conservatives have been waiting for and to please not block the only ray of hope we have left for the future. Americans will know we were right in 2014 and 2016.

Wish every conservative would do the same thing.

He's rich just like Jay-z & raps about the same things but, you got a problem with Jay because he's the best of his profession. Did I mention Jay-z got the Barclay Center moved to his hood. Now how many jobs did he being to his hometown? Did I mention he has a scholarship program that sends over 50 students to college per year.

The Medicaid welfare program expansion would be paid for by the federal government for a temporary period of time, after which the state would be 100 percent responsible for covering 100 percent of the expansion, right?
So, that money was going to be lost, anyway.
What's your real point?
My God you are the GD dumbest jackazz on the GD planet.

After a period of time the states are responsible for 10%

Hey dolt, Easy was absolutely correct in correcting your fellow dolt, pduped. Obamacare is a form of welfare, subsidized by the tax payer.

You are an idiot! Did Bush "abandon" Afghanistan, dolt?
