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.

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.
LOL, Lib troll issue of the day is My Vagina.

lily, not wanting abortions past 20 weeks is not a sexual issue. It is a question about the viability of the baby.

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.

Only a liberal socialist would not understand the democratic process. It's messy and there's a two-party system for a reason. Both sides have to find common ground when there's an impasse, especially when it involves a major law affecting society in such a profound way if it's going to continue to work.
Refusing to negotiate is not part of this process. Nor has it ever been. Only now has it become a political game with posturing and maneuvering by the power elite with us as the pawns to discredit the other side and secure a one-party system.
Apparently, the socialist system you desire as well.
Want to talk process?

The Continuing Resolution has ZERO to do with Obamacare, Obamacare is already funded so it has NOTHING to do with Obamacare. It is not being held up by democratic process because the process is to put it to a vote in the House but Boehner WON'T take it to the floor.

There is no budget impasse.
To have a "budget impass", you actually have to have a budget, you moron.
Our government has been so incompetent since Obama took office, the government hasn't been able to produce a budget. We have not had a budget since Obama took office.
Please use verbiage that is reflective of the real world. Using terms such as "budget impass" has nothing to do with what is happening today, or anything in the past 4 years, because we haven't even had a budget since Obama took office.

Here's an actual link to their website that proves you a liar.

""Founded in 1973, The Heritage Foundation is a research and educational institution—a think tank—whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.

We believe the principles and ideas of the American Founding are worth conserving and renewing. As policy entrepreneurs, we believe the most effective solutions are consistent with those ideas and principles. Our vision is to build an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish.""

Female vote for Dems is declining.

Apparently BC is not settled as far as the Dems are concerned. They dusted it off and pulled out Sandra Fluke the last election cycle and had some people thinking there wouldn't be BC. Why we are pointing out the idiocy.

<quoted text>United HC supplements are favored by doctors and hospitals in my region.
Speaking of hospitals, in Lake County Florida the non profit Hospitals have been the recipients of a county tax levied against citizens to pay for the uninsured the hospitals treat. Since it's inception the tax has generated well over $100 million for the non-profits. In 2016 the citizens will vote on whether or not to renew the tax or eliminate it.
Reducing the number of doctors in a network is a way of reducing costs by rationing care.
