The confrontations will continue until the RINOs finally join the party they actually belong to.
lol! the t-pers are just a bunch of party hijacking terrorists.

So much for their self proclaimed independence and freedom when they want to TAKE it from others.

Really?? Like your stupidity in saying the Heritage Foundation is Libertarian??
""How the Heritage Foundation, a Conservative Think Tank, Promoted the Individual Mandate""
""ROMNEY: Actually, Newt, we got the idea of an individual mandate from you.
GINGRICH: That’s not true. You got it from the Heritage Foundation.
ROMNEY: Yes, we got it from you, and you got it from the Heritage Foundation and from you.
GINGRICH: Wait a second. What you just said is not true. You did not get that from me. You got it from the Heritage Foundation.
ROMNEY: And you never supported them?
GINGRICH: I agree with them, but I’m just saying, what you said to this audience just now plain wasn’t true.
All you did is prove that a talking vagina doesn't know how to fact check, instead you spew stinky mucous.
And you're so lame, you get caught in your ignorance.
It's the Cato Institute that is Libertarian, Miss Vagina.
How simplistic of you. Heritage has been drifting to a more Libertarian viewpoint. Personalities change and think tanks change over time nothing is embedded in cement.

If you have any doubt that Heritage is anti-Obamacare take a look at their page (link for Yeah who doesn't know how to Google- /)

Living in the past does not help when supporting urban myths as still true today.

Keep up being a misogynist-it is so you.

The only thing that's dysfunctional is Obama and Reid demanding complete ownership of this law because they think it belongs to them and because their plan is for a single-payer system down the road and their dogged determination to discredit Republicans no matter how many people are made to suffer in the process.
And, of course, liberal socialists such as yourself who are more than willing to hand Obama and Reid the control they so desire on a silver platter using the strong arm of a biased and dysfunctional IRS.
Republicans are divided temporarily on how best to save the country from Reid and Obama - and you.
A 28% approval rating is pretty durned dysfunctional, especially compared to the Ds 43%. An all time high 60% express the need for a third party.

None of your blaming of D leaders is going to make that turd sandwich taste any better.

Did you find that post you threatened to show everyone here and discover you're an idiot?

And, you forgot to answer the post again. Here it is for your convenient reference:

Obama is just a figurehead. He doesn't do anything. For Obama to do anything wrong, he actually has to do something. However, because those who are actually making the decisions use Obama's image and name, let's just blame it on Obama, ok?
Let's talk about Obama's "recovery". There are 5 times as many part time jobs being created as full time jobs.
Now, let's talk about available jobs. There are more than 30 million illegal aliens here doing the work Obama is paying other people to not do. If you can't find a job, take one of those jobs. go in there and tell them you're an American and you have a right to that job, and the Constitution and federal law will back you up. Now, all you have to do is get a president that will enforce the law.
Perhaps you need to look beyond your own neighborhood for a job. How about going to some state like, oh, say, Texas and get a job. It's booming there.
The job situation is doing nothing but getting worse under Obama. Each day the opportunities to do what I suggest become fewer. They're still there, though. Just go out there and find them. Buy a copy of the Houston chronicle and look through the classifieds if you can't think of anything else to do. Get on the internet and look for a job.
I'll tell you how to find a job.
Get up every moning early and start looking. Stop at every place of business or where you see work being done and ask. Show them you are the type of person who wants to work for a living. Take the first job offered. Show up for work every day on time, and do what you're paid to do when you're at work.
You can't do this for one hour on one day. You have to do this until you get a job. That's how you get a job if you can't get one any other way.
Wake up before sunrise. Get an early start. Hunt until you find something. You may be faced with the situation where nobody's going to bring something to you, you will have to go find it yourself.

Sure Homer: In calendar year 2010, for the first time since the enactment of the Social Security Amendments of 1983, annual outlays for the program exceeded annual revenues excluding interest credited to the trust funds. CBO projects that the gap will continue: Over the next five years, outlays will be about 5 percent greater than such revenues. However, as more members of the baby-boom generation (that is, people born between 1946 and 1964) enter retirement, outlays will increase relative to the size of the economy, whereas tax revenues will remain at an almost constant share of the economy. As a result, the shortfall will begin to grow around 2017.

CBO projects that the DI trust fund will be exhausted in 2017 and that the OASI trust fund will be exhausted in 2040. Once a trust fund's balance has fallen to zero and current revenues are insufficient to cover the benefits that are specified in law, the corresponding program will be unable to pay full benefits without changes in law. The DI trust fund came close to exhaustion in 1994, but that outcome was prevented by legislation that redirected revenues from the OASI trust fund to the DI trust fund. In part because of that experience, it is a common analytical convention to consider the DI and OASI trust funds as combined. CBO projects that, if legislation to shift resources from the OASI trust fund to the DI trust fund was enacted, the combined OASDI trust funds would be exhausted in 2038.

give it a try, you lying sack of feces.
All you've got is stupid commie crap and 57 states, which you've used for years now.
Go for it, or admit you're a fraud.
Speaking of fraud:

Obama: "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your current health insurance plan you can keep it.”

Without these two presidential pledges, Obama Care would have stood no chance. By and large, people were happy with their doctors and with their insurance plans. They would not have given up something that is working for the vague promises of Obama Care.

Obama delivered his Obama Care pledges via You Tube, weekly radio addresses, press conferences, and speeches at universities and colleges and to physicians groups, labor unions, and insurance providers.

Obama’s army of cheerleaders included Hollywood stars, Golden Globe winners, Big Labor, the NFL, the American Association of Retired People, favored insurance giants, and party pundits. Among these was House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, whose website still promises:“Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.” I suggest she update.

Both promises turned out to be false, unless he was talking about his own family's healthcare and repeating what he said to Moochelle.

Please tell us just where do you get your indoctrinated bullshit from.
Normally, I just assume all this propaganda indoctrinated "information" is just part of some indoctrination session all you you have to attend to keep your Democrat Indoctrination Process Service Helper In Training (DIPSHIT) certification current.
But, this is such an outrageous statement and so diametrically opposed to the real world, I just have to know the actual name of the person indoctrinating you.
Or, just gicve us some link to them. I just have to have a conversation with them. If for no other reason, just to verify they are actually saying things like this.
This forum is such a waste of time I've decided to only read and respond to Carol but, for you and for this subject I'l make an exception and identify the CHRISTO-FASCIST elements of the Constitution Party I identified simply by going to their website. So, if you want the name of who "indoctrinated" me to this thinking that name is the Constitution Party.(I've also watched third party debates they've participated it)

"Seven Principles Of The Constitution Party:

Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death; CHRISTO-FASCIST
Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed individual;
Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted; CHRISTO-FASCIST
Property: Each individual's right to own and steward personal property without government burden;
Constitution And Bill Of Rights: interpreted according to the actual intent of the founding fathers;
State's Rights: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government, nor prohibited by the Constitution to the states, is reserved to the states or to the people.
American Sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances."

Just answer this question. If it's possible you can give a thoughtful answer, I mean.
Would you expect Democrats to sit quietly by and cave in to Republicans' demands if they refused to negotiate a law passed strictly on a Republican partisan vote of which the majority were and still are against and with unintended unfavorable consequences?
You do know Democrats have shutdown the government numerous times in the past and negotiations on the part of Republicans ended them?
Republicans would have never excluded Democrats from having any input or tweaking a law of this magnitude by refusing to negotiate in the first place. And Republicans would have never passed a law of this magnitude on a strictly partisan vote without one Democrat on board.
I know that was a lot to digest but just try and answer the first question.
Over and over again you keep repeating the false claim that "the majority were and still are against" the Affordable Care Act. It's an out and out lie. "

These are the facts:

"Only 33 percent believe that the health law should be repealed, delayed, or defunded. 29 percent believe that “Congress should make changes to improve the law,” 26 percent believe that “Congress should let the law take effect” and see what happens, and 12 percent believe that the law should be expanded."

In a rare press interview (You Tube on January 29, 2010), an uncomfortable, ungrammatical, and rambling off-teleprompter Obama admitted:“There’s some stray cats and dogs that got in there (into Obama Care) that we were (?) eliminating….it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your — if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making. And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge.”

If I understand the President’s convoluted response (speaking two months before Obama Care’s passage), provisions of Obama Care violated his pledge to the American people, but he is working on them, even though they got “snuck” in by the President’s own party.(I know of no subsequent statement from the President that these alarming provisions were corrected).

The most striking admission that Obama’s two promises are false is shown in the evolution of Obama’s PR machine.

As the details were being drafted behind closed doors, Obama Care’s official web sites repeated blanket assurances that “you can keep your doctor and your plan” while warning against “scary chain e mails and videos” from “those who find truth a little inconvenient.”(See: White House Reality Check, launched in August of 2009). Another official White House web site continued point-blank assurances to worried seniors, asking “will I be able to keep my doctor?” more than a year after the passage of Obama Care.

As Obama Care crept towards implementation, the carefully teleprompted Obama offered vaguer assurances than “you can keep your doctor and plan.” His new refrain instead was:“If you’re one of the more than 250 million Americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health
(Address from the White House, June, 28, 2012). Notice: The President now promises only that you can keep health insurance, not the doctor or health insurance program you have now and like.

If we fast forward to the present, the Obama Care agitprop machine seems to have forgotten entirely “you can keep your doctor and your insurance.”

Except where answers are unavoidable, it is as if the President did not spend an entire year assuring the American public that he would keep his two solemn promises.

Instead, Obama Care propaganda now uses the classic bait-and-switch gambit. We should forget all about keeping our doctor or insurance plan. That’s not important at all.

Just look at these other marvels of Obama Care and forget you are likely to lose your doctor and your plan.

As a bait-and-switch example, ObamaCare Facts 2013 offers sixty two facts of Obama Care, none of which even mentions keeping your own doctor or the plan that you like. All kinds of new promises are added.

One of these “facts”– members of Congress themselves will be on Obama Care – has just become a myth, as will many others as time passes (such as Obama Care not adding to the deficit).

Obama lied and health insurance that worked for millions has died.

ObamaCare is ObamaFraud with his promises another example of an empty suit with only style and no substance.
