No it isn't working. People will still hate Obamacare.
That maximum pain is causing embarrassment to their party.
"No pain, no gain."

If you're aim is to fundamentally transform a nation into a one-party system with total government control and a single-payer system as the starting point, somebody's gotta feel some pain.

It's just too bad it's us - and the families of fallen soldiers.

Good thing Obama and Hagel had all those lawyers to tell them it's okay to pay for those soldiers' funerals.

But, once again, welcome to a new America - The Dumb and Dumber United States of America.

I'm always fascinated by this false puritianism that is displayed by many Americans; as if sex is a bad thing, our bodies are bad.
Do they want to pretend that penises and vaginas don't exist? No wonder they're all into sick stuff.

<quoted text> I was having a conversation with a young dude (under 30) last night about saving and compound interest. The subject came up because he said by the time he got old there would be no SS left for him. By the way, the guy next to him said to him you put your money in and it will be there for you. I let that slide. Anyway, I tried to tell him that if he would set aside a couple of dollar a day and deposit it somewhere he could get a good rate of return it would add up in 30 years for him to take care of himself when he got old. He said he couldn't afford to set aside a couple of dollars a day. In the time we had the conversation he drank 4 Bud Lights and smoked at least three cigs. People don't want to be responsible for themselves. They would rather have the fun, the car, the big house, the fancy vacation every year and then screw the taxpayer when they got old or sick. Democrats know this and so pander to them. the destruction of the greatest country on Earth is on it's way from the inside out. It's a damn shame!
They were saying SS would be gone when I was growing up back in the 70's, of course all those people that were saying it are now collecting it today. SS is not going anywhere. Well unless we keep blowing money on useless wars like the Iraq War.

PAUL KRUGMAN: No. Some years down the pike, we're going to get the real solution, which is going to be a combination of death panels and sales taxes. It's going to be that we're actually going to take Medicare under control, and we're going to have to get some additional revenue, probably from a VAT.

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.
Tell us about your Cadillac Medicaid plan!!

1. On Obama’s plot to kidnap him:“So this afternoon President Obama has invited the Senate Republicans to the White House. So after leaving here, I’m going to be going to the White House. I will make a request. if I’m never seen again, please send a search and rescue team. I very much hope by tomorrow morning I don’t wake up amidst the Syrian rebels.”
Now, this is funny coming from someone in the Senate. It's like having Will Rodgers there.
2. On the press:“The media wants America to give up and allow this country to keep sliding off the edge of the cliff.”
Sounds accurate to me.
3. On the Constitution:“This is an administration that seems bound and determine to violate every single one of our bill of rights. I don’t know that they have yet violated the Third Amendment, but I expect them to start quartering soldiers in peoples’ homes soon.”
Sounds accurate to me.
4. On the hecklers who interrupted his speech:“Is anybody left at OFA headquarters? I’m actually glad that the president’s whole political staff is here instead of actually doing mischief in the country
Funny, but has a basis in truth, like all comedy.
7. On the Cold War:“Our foreign policy is detente, which I’m pretty sure is French for surrender.”
I'm pretty sure Ted Cruz wasn't in the Senate when the Cold War ended in 1989.
8. On Vice President Biden:“You don’t need a punchline. You just say his name, people laugh.”
True.

2.4 Government Finance and Spending
All persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. We call for the repeal of the income tax, the abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We oppose any legal requirements forcing employers to serve as tax collectors. Government should not incur debt, which burdens future generations without their consent. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes.

2.9 Health Care

We favor restoring and reviving a free market health care system. We recognize the freedom of individuals to determine the level of health insurance they want (if any), the level of health care they want, the care providers they want, the medicines and treatments they will use and all other aspects of their medical care, including end-of-life decisions. People should be free to purchase health insurance across state lines.

""Establishment GOPers assail tea party on shutdown
Republican establishment gripes about House tea party lawmakers over budget impasse

""DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)-- From county chairmen to national party luminaries, veteran Republicans across the country are accusing tea party lawmakers of staining the GOP with their refusal to bend in the budget impasse in Washington.
The Republican establishment also is signaling a willingness to strike back at the tea party in next fall's elections.
"It's time for someone to act like a grown-up in this process," former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu argues, faulting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and tea party Republicans in the House as much as President Barack Obama for taking an uncompromising stance.
Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is just as pointed, saying this about the tea party-fueled refusal to support spending measures that include money for Obama's health care law: "It never had a chance."
The anger emanating from Republicans like Sununu and Barbour comes just three years after the GOP embraced the insurgent political group and rode its wave of new energy to return to power in the House.
Now, they're lashing out with polls showing Republicans bearing most of the blame for the federal shutdown, which entered its 11th day Friday. In some places, they're laying the groundwork to take action against the tea party in the 2014 congressional elections.
Iowa Republicans are recruiting a pro-business Republican to challenge six-term conservative Rep. Steve King, a leader in the push to defund the health care law. Disgruntled Republicans are further ahead in Michigan, where second-term, tea party-backed Rep. Justin Amash is facing a Republican primary challenger who is more in line with — and being encouraged by — the party establishment. And business interest groups, long aligned with the Republican Party, also are threatening to recruit and fund strong challengers to tea party House members.""

sign of the times....

The conservative activist group credited with building the tea party has turned into a nearly broke wingnut welfare slush fund, according to former staffers.

Sources told BuzzFeed that FreedomWorks was forced to take out a $1 million line of credit to keep extra cash on hand earlier this year.

The nonprofit organization raised more than $40 million last year but has taken in as little as $3 million so far this year, the site reported Friday, and staffers are reportedly fleeing the group as morale plummets.
