Is that a fact or, just more republican spin talk? I'm from the biggest city in Jersey, land wise &, not a single business has went out of business as sacrifice to the ACA.

The strange thing is that the ObamaKKKare exchanges have far fewer options and variables than common online applications such as buying airline tickets, so why is it so difficult to get it right?
So in that minuscule world you reside in you actually think or believe that Obama set up the websites? What a frigging "DOPE". But I do enjoy your daily misery, along with just how you and others like you are your own worst enemy...Thanks loser.

Actually, it's from the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Was Jesus a Marxist?? He sure did support the poor and blame the wealthy for their selfishness.
You've gone beyond your usual ignorance.
"He who mocks the poor shows contempt for their Maker; whoever gloats over disaster will not go unpunished." Proverbs 17:5
"He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done." Proverbs 19:17
"If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered." Proverbs 21:13
"A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor." Proverbs 22:9
"A ruler who oppresses the poor is like a driving rain that leaves no crops." Proverbs 28:3
"He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses." Proverbs 28:27
"The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern." Proverbs 29:7
"The poorest of the poor will find pasture, and the needy will lie down in safety. But your root I will destroy by famine; it will slay your survivors." Isaiah 14:30
And this was written for the Liberal moochers we have seen, we see today and will see forever:

Jer 17:5 (NIV) This is what the LORD says: "Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD."

Prov 28:26 (NIV) He who trusts in himself is a fool...

But I like this one, an early Greek proverb: "God helps those who help themselves"

Or this from ISlam: "One day Mohammed noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it. He asked the Bedouin, "Why don't you tie down your camel?" The Bedouin answered, "I placed my trust in Allah." At that, Mohammed said, "Tie your camel and place your trust in Allah.""

Trust in the Magic Negro is woefully misplaced regardless of which religious or enlightened historical cultural influence guides you.

Oh brother, you will post anything is what this proves. What was your source for this?
The public has also said they want Obama to compromise.
Aren't you the one who keeps claiming you don't have to provide a link? Something about people being able to use "google"?

However, since you seem incapable of following your own advice in typical "Do as we say, not as we do" fashion, here's the link:

You really need to work on your reading comprehension. "Mile" said the Affordable Care Act was going to "change everyone's circumstances". I pointed out that that is a lie. It will not affect those who have insurance through their employer. It will not affect those on Medicare. It will not affect those on Medicaid. That leaves only 15% who are affected by the Affordable Care Act.
The increase cost of health insurance affects everyone including those obtaining it through companies.

From there take it up with Mile.

Thomas Jefferson had a vast personal library reflecting his enormous curiosity about the world. Among his volumes: a Quran purchased in 1765 that informed his ideas about plurality and religious freedom in the founding of America.
In her book Thomas Jefferson's Qur'an: Islam and the Founders, author Denise Spellberg draws parallels between the beliefs of the founding father and religious tolerance in the United States today.
"I think that there is anxiety about what Muslims believe, largely because people don't understand Islam very well. I think that was also true in the 18th century," Spellberg says. "It strikes me that Jefferson was theorizing for a future that included Muslims — not in spite of their religion, but because of it and because of his notion of universal civil rights."
She sat down with All Things Considered host Arun Rath to discuss Jefferson's Qur'an and the lasting impact of the third U.S. president's views on religious freedom.
On how Jefferson came to have a Quran:
"He actually was a bibliophile from the beginning. He ordered this Quran in 1765, eleven years before he wrote the Declaration of Independence. He was a law student at the time, and he had the book shipped from England to Williamsburg, Va.... There's an entry in the local newspaper because they were the booksellers for the time.
...
"Europeans, and Americans after them, in this period tended to be quite hostile toward Islam. And yet Jefferson was curious about the religion and law of Muslims, and that's probably why he bought the Quran."
On his views of religious freedom:
"Jefferson was unique in many ways. He criticized Islam as he did Christianity and Judaism. He talked about Islam as a religion that repressed scientific inquiry — a strange idea he got from Voltaire that wasn't right — but ... was able to separate his principles about Muslim religious liberty and civil rights from these inherited European prejudices about Islam.
"He did the same thing when arguing for the inclusion of Catholics and Jews, actually. He had not very good things to say about either Catholicism or Judaism, but he insisted that these individual practitioners should have equal civil rights....[Jefferson] resisted the notion, for example, that Catholics were a threat to the United States because of their allegiance to the pope as a foreign power. There were many Protestants who would have disagreed with him about Catholics, and many who would have disagreed with him about Muslims.
"They were the outsiders, whose inclusion represented the furthest reach of toleration and rights. So for Jefferson and others — and he was not alone in this, although it was a minority — for him to include Muslims meant to include everyone of every faith: Jews, Catholics and all others. And to exclude Muslims meant that there would be no universal principle of civil rights for all believers in America."
On the Muslim population in America during the 1770s:
"Jefferson and [George] Washington and others were theorizing about a future American population when, ironically and tragically, they never knew that real Muslims were already in America. But they were slaves, brought from west Africa against their will.

----------
Seems our Founding Fathers had a far more expansive view of Religious Freedom than do Repugnants of today.
Haven't you yet heard about how a Fool and their credibility are soon parted?

Denise Spellberg works the Liberal Wu Mao Dang channels furiously and you suck it up like a kid eating candy. Suddenly, Jefferson was a Muslim-tolerant Founding Father.

This sounds so much like the Ebonics bullsh it propagated by black socialists a decade or so ago.

And it's not impossible that Jefferson actually owned Muslim slaves from Africa, but there's no direct evidence of it. That's not the case for George Washington, his neighbor in Virginia.""

Funny how so many Repugnants who call themselves Christians defy the teachings of Christ.
And that's why you and Carol won't talk about it.
Thanks for exposing yourself as a hypocrite and a hater.
Most often than not, those who wallow in the moral swamps are first to try claiming the moral high-ground in any sociopolitical discussions.

You are no different, swamp-snake.

Proselytizing from within a prison cell is corny don't you think?
