Emammy's had a bad day, we have to cut him some slack.
His lies have caught up with him, and he doesn't like it one bit!!
He can't help it. He's been kicked from pillar to post all his miserable life.
I lit him up like a vat full of gasoline today. He'll have scars from it.
Did you notice he yells at his fav quarterback on TV?? Then tries to justify it as normal behavior. LOL
No further proof is needed concerning how crazy these right wingnuts are. Him and Dweeb. Loony birds of a feather.
Now that I have him gnawing the bone, my work here is done for tonight!!

A sizable contingent of more moderate Republicans have watched with alarm as their party has been commandeered by tea party members and right-wing activists trying to kill Obamacare at all costs.
The absurdity struck home for Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) Tuesday as the prominent conservative organizations Heritage Action, Red State and FreedomWorks all came out against a last-second GOP leadership plan to avert a crisis that Democrats had warned was too far to the right.
"This party is going nuts," King told HuffPost. "So many people I run into who are normal people -- and I hate to use that term -- they just can't understand what's going on."
"On this one they can't even see both sides," King said. "They just think Republicans are crazy. That's it. They see no justification for any of this."
He added that the compromise House leaders were pushing actually did little to affect Obamacare, except to force the federal government to stop contributing its share to congressional staffers' health insurance.
"Even if this bill passed tonight, what would it have done?" King said. "After shutting down the government for two and a half weeks, laying off 800,000 people, all the damage we caused, all we would end up doing was taking away health insurance from congressional employees. That's it? That's what you go to war for? That's what we shut down the United States government for?"

FWIW...

This is carol....

"...He who said that all Conservatives are stupid did not know them. Stupid Conservatives there may be,—and there certainly are very stupid Radicals. The well-educated, widely-read Conservative, who is well assured that all good things are gradually being brought to an end by the voice of the people, is generally the pleasantest man to be met."

But even in Europe, a Pew Research poll last year....
The poll was done last year as I stated and there has been no new polls reflecting views about the issues of NSA spying and his handling of Libya, Syria or Egypt.

You don't know what you're talking about. They changed the bill to give them power to try &, leverage the WH into their 1 sided compromise. Harry Reid has nothing to do with the republicans hostage tactics. They rigged a once neutral rule to fit their gov't shutdown agenda.

"(DAILY KOS)-- My wife and I just got our updates from Kaiser telling us what our 2014 rates will be. Her monthly has been $168 this year, mine $150. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who don’t go to the doctor often. I barely ever go. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe.
Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wife’s rate is gong to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284.
I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any [expletive]penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?"
My favorite part of this beyond someone admitting there that the premiums and deductibles are higher-by a ways- than previous years was the people commenting panicking about him being honest about it happening.

Your own article stated it was referring to a poll conducted a year ago. I left that comment only so you had no excuse for not seeing it.

Man the Egypt & Libya incidences happened before he was elected &, he got to a resolution in the Syria conflict without using military might. That being said, if the country wasn't with him, he would've never been elected. Still putting faith in polls. You ain't learned yet I see!

comments...

The reason is, your policy did not have the minimum provisions required in Obamacare. Therefore, that particular policy will no longer exist under the new law.

You can't blame Obamacare because you selected substandard insurance. And remember, those who have no insurance at all will be getting a 100% premium increase. However, the vast majority of them are grateful they can finally get insurance.

You likely qualify for subsidies, if you're too stubborn to take them, that's on you.

........

So basically Kaiser raped you on renewal and tried to blame it on ACA. If this isn't proof that this whole industry needs reform nothing else is.

........

I am so tired of the ACA getting blamed for greedy insurance companies. wtf people? Go yell at your stupid insurance company that raises their rates whenever they please, and now have a perfect scapegoat for their bad behavior. And while you're at it go yell at the greedy corporations that don't want to pay for your healthcare, or give you a living wage, that are likewise using the ACA and the President as their excuse for being greedy aholes. Healthcare reform will take some time to get right. It seems a small miracle to me that we have made it this far. And please, start directing all that angst at the people and companies that deserve it.

Hey Eman, put down your computer for a minute and watch the news. You're missing your teabagger world collapse. Your moron friends in the House can't even agree. The Heritage Foundation said rein in these idiots or we'll rate them. Obama doesn't even have to throw you losers a bone. You're going down in flames.
God bless Ted Cruz!

don't say "you don't know what your talking about", then call it a bill. Its a house rule. And more political rhetoric. Rangel got laughed at recently for that type of talk.

Garbage. Every two years parliamentary rules are voted on. The Dems have enacted their fare share of one sided rules and this may have been a re-write of on theirs.

Did you read your report? Only 1.2 % of people applying for supplements were found ineligible. Given the amount of fraud within the medicare and food stamp program this is nothing.
You have a reading comprehension problem. The report said..."Out of 1,410,647 individuals SUBJECT TO INCOME LIMITS (in other words...those who had an AGI exceeding $1.25 million) only 1.2% were determined to be ineligible. That means 98.8% of those who were ineligible under the new guidelines cheated the system. Republicans: Crooks and liars.
