Nothing ever gets off the ground and starts running like a Swiss watch without actual live testing first. It will all be fine. You Republicans need to just sit back and watch. If Obamacare is a failure, you can say, "told you so" and if it is a success, you can do what Republicans always do when they lose a fight...whine, cry and pass the blame.
Ask the skyrocketing number of part-time workers and the growing number of full-time workers cut back to part-time directly because of Obamacare if they need to "wait and see" if it's a disaster.

Then ask the growing number of people who are finding out their premiums are twice what they were once paying for health insurance if they need to "wait and see" if it's a disaster.

I'll let you in on something the majority already know. It's a disaster.

Oblamercare is already crumbling under its own weight.
Democrats voted it in with a super majority without one single Republican vote,and,against the wishes of the majority of tax paying Americans.
Every poll since 2009,including ultra liberal CNN and MSNBC,show these results to this day.
If its so great why did the writers of this bill exempt themselves from the mandate and lead by example?
Even the low info voters who re-elected this incompetent bunch of buffoons are beginning to see what it was nobody who authored this bill wanted us to see.
Still paying your faith in the same polls that let " Y'ALL " dumasses down in Nov I see! The hard headed never learn &, you know that ain't," a hard head makes a soft ass. Btw, the election proved who the majority of Americans are &, the presidents a democrat!

Waxman,
I am still waiting for you to make a single coherent statement of any fundamental belief o statement of debate- just name calling. It is easy to name call. If that is all you have, then you are intellectually out of your league in dealing with me and going forward I will ignore your comments as lightweight ignorance. In your terms "Put up or shut up".

Lois,
"Obamacare" kicked in on Monday. It has done all this damage in four days? Have you ever heard of NAFTA? Yes, a Democrat (B. Clinton) ushered that in.

Carol , you seem to operating under the delusion that "charitable" giving goes primarily to the poor when in fact only a small percentage actually does. The largest segment of giving is to religious organizations or churches. Most of that money goes to cover operational costs. I just got out of a vestry meeting at our church where we had to vote on some needed structural repairs and decide where the money was coming from. Other forms of charitable giving includes education, the arts and even animal shelters. While some donations to food banks for instance help the poor the vast majority doesn't even reach them.
As for your assertion that government shouldn't be involved I refer you to James Madison, the Father of the Constitution in a veto message to Congress;
"The bill vests in the said incorporated church an authority to provide for the support of the poor and the education of poor children of the same, an authority which, being altogether superfluous if the provision is to be the result of pious charity, would be a precedent for giving to religious societies as such a legal agency in carrying into effect a public and civil duty."
Do you get that Carol? Taking care of the poor is a public and civic duty. It is a governmental role and your assertion that it's theft is just plain stupid.
The government's only role is to provide a safety net because American taxpayers are compassionate.

The taxpayers, however, are NOT obligated to support a lifestyle of dependency for any reason just because Obama has made it easier to choose a life of welfare permanently.

Do you get THAT, PDupont?

Many churches have benevolence funds and food stores which anyone in need can have for the asking.

There's also Goodwill, the Salvation Army, the Lighthouse Ministries, Child Fund, St. Jude's, Children's Shriner's Hospital and many other organizations which would gladly take contributions.

Your idea of charity is encouraging government dependence indefinitely. That's a welfare state. It has nothing to do with charity and everything to do with unfairness for those working just to get by and robbing Peter to pay Paul.

I would be glad to DISCUSS / DEBATE anyone here on political issues. But the name calling silliness is just a waste of time for people with an IQ south of 80.

Well, I can lead a horse to water but I can't make him drink:
"In The Tax Act of 1986 Congress extended, as an incentive to keep prices low (subsidy), special favor to those who participate in oil and gas ventures. The tax act allows for Intangible Drilling Costs (labor, chemicals, mud, grease, etc.), which are typically 70% to 90% of the cost to drill a well, to be written off the taxable year, expensed against ordinary income."
The IRS Code allows Luigi's Pizza to write off pizza dough, cheese, tomato sauce, the box, and labor which are typically 70% to 90% of the cost to make a pizza, expensed against ordinary income.

You are having a reality disconnect here.

You accuse people of being stupid and then complain about name calling.

You are the pot calling the kettle black and you aren't fooling anyone here with an IQ over 80.

PS Whiners and hypocrites are routinely criticized here.

Folks... there are facts in this world. They are not that hard to find. Neither party is totally comprised of morons - although there are plenty to be found in both parties.

Obama is not the Anti-Christ that Limbaugh/Beck/Fox News tell you about every day. PLEASE>>> for once... think for yourself. Go outside your normal conservative outlets for information.

THEN.... make up your own mind!!!!!!

People like Thomas Jefferson, Madison, Washington, Hamilton, etc educate themselves. They did not listen to Fox and then "carry the message".

You need to ask yourself - are you a freethinking, informed American,,, or a pawn? And, think about it, how often do "pawns" know that they are pawns?

Seymour who makes a claim, then can't back it up! Talk about looking stupid and working hard to prove it... that's Seymour!
