Have you guys really thought this out... or are you just singing a song you heard on Fox News?
I REALLY wish there were people here who could actually discuss and debate real ideas and political policies.... guess I'm in the wrong place and will move along.
But you guy's need to understand that you are not contributing to anything substantial by trading insults. As long as the poor people are kept ignorant and arguing with each other ... the rich are safe and we will continue to be slaves to the corporations.
I sincerely hope things turn out well for you folks... but I fear they will not. The middle class is slowly being destroyed and you are being told that this is a good thing. Yet!!!... you believe it.... very sad.
I don't like Obama because he is a narcissistic, egocentric, self-absorbed, power hungry, one-party system Marxist who is disconnected from any concept of leadership and the American people and has no other desire than to have complete and total control over us in the name of big government and a nanny state.

And he thanks you for being so gullible, I'm quite sure.

New 'deadline' for fixing Obamacare glitches seen in mid-November

The U.S. administration has a little over a month to fix the technology problems crippling its online health insurance marketplace, or jeopardize the goal of signing up millions of Americans in time for benefits under President Barack Obama's healthcare law, experts said on Thursday.

There is no "skyrocketing number of part-time workers" tied to Obamacare.
Here's the list....how many Full-time workers do you see cut to part-time?

And, no one is being forced to join the exchange. If they have insurance now and it is cheaper...keep it. The exchange obviously isn't for them. Geez

Why did you screw up the link addy? I corrected it above and re-linked below.

Maybe you need to look at the list-there is plenty of examples of job cuts.

Better yet when the BLS is up again look at the increasing percentage of part time jobs.

Where's the polls on that entire website asking the same questions about Democrats and Obama?

Obama's approval has dropped to 37%. Where was that noted on that website?

An Associated Press-GfK survey found that just 5% approve of the job being done by senators and representatives.

That would be both parties in Congress.

53% disapprove of how Barack Obama is handling his job.

If you don't accept biology, geology or archeology you don't accept science. Its an all or nothing proposition. Therefore, you need to eschew cable TV, the internet, antibiotics, and defibrillators.
Now go die you moronic evangelical "christians" and get the fck out of MY government!
Well, of course that's how you see it. You obviously picked the side of government having power over us. That would make you a liberaltarian socialist.

So tell us something we don't know already.

What’s Behind the Increase in Part-Time Work?

Part-time work spiked during the recent recession and has stayed stubbornly high, raising concerns that elevated part-time employment represents a “new normal” in the labor market.

The share of employed individuals working part time rose from about 17% in 2007 just before the recession to nearly 20% in 2009 and stayed near that level through mid-2013.

Temp work is way up, too.

A glitch is a short-lived fault in a system. It is often used to describe a transient fault that corrects itself, and is therefore difficult to troubleshoot.

That doesn't even come close to describing the problems with ObamaKKKare.

Oh, don't leave. Republicans never discuss and debate. They bully. You'll get used to it.

They attack purely to shut up the opposition. They do it all the time. Then, they pat themselves on the back at their prowess. It's better to stick around and be the voice of reason and a thorn in their side than leave them to feed off of each other's negativity, like parasites feeding off of each other. It's not good for America to let them believe they are right.

Sunlight foundation released the names of groups involved in this debacle. There was like 30 of them. Many of them with lobbyist and most campaign donors.

With so many fingers in the pot is there any reason to ask why this became such a tangled up mess that no one can sort out the code.

Jay Carney said the bill was unnecessary and Obama rejected piecemeal solutions...then cooler heads decided that the spokesboy was an idiot and turned Obama around...

in the long run, means nothing...

all Boehner has ever asked for is for Obama to discuss the issues....
