That is why they rather love Shutdown.

<quoted text>Orthodox Jews and those that follow
G-d's law are in the 58% category that vote Republican. The rest of them are liberals first-being Jewish does not matter to them. And then you have fake Jews like DiFeinstein, whose isn't a Jew at all--but let's everyone believe she is.
That's a disgusting thing to say.

But completely expected from someone like you.

Visit Brooklyn, NY. Neighborhoods filled with hasidic Jews of various nationalities.

A solid Democratic voting block.

There are no more observant Jews than the Hasidics.

You like to say shameful, ignorant things. Like insulting other Jews andcriticizing their faith.

I don't even believe you're a Jew. Just a wanna be "Zionist Christian", a true oxymoron.

That sounds like he is adding the premiums and the deductible to arrive at that total. Doesn't sound right. There's a lot of misinformation out there that is being propagated by the rightwing.
And, of course, you all love that shyt.
How's the new digs coming along?
Why is the guy shopping in the exchanges??? Sounds as though he's got a good plan already and should just stay put.

More right wing emails if you ask me. They're flying around in record numbers.

You are dumb and you prove it with every post you make. Democrats had a say, the majority of the house did not agree with what they said.

I was responding to a dumbass (Carol I think) that said Republicans didn't have a say in the ACA.

Thank you agreeing with me. They had a say & got voted down.

The majority ruled.

Now tell that op your buddy Teddy Cruz & the rest of your party.

If you were not so ignorant you would be aware the house has sent more than one balanced budget bill to the senate. The senate refused to vote on any of them.

Never under Obama was one of the Republican budgets balanced.

If you recall,the one Ryan plan didn't balance the budget until the year 2040.

Those of us who have worked above the tables, in the lower economic realms since our middle teens-say..DON'T touch the retirement age, 40 PLUS years of paying IN taxes, to have a society that NOW allows for hordes of able entitlementalcase SLACKERTICS to drain them for sitting on their deadbeat, palms outstretched azzez is already TOO MUCH.
The "welfare" FWEE riding baby mama and similar programs are the ones that are OUT of control!!
(15 kids hollering "someone has to pay"??? The "givverment" SHOULD'VE CAPPED that kind of crap along time ago! ONE alotted amount per month, no matter how many them add to they litters of nothing but CONsumer. GET A JOB entitleMentalcase NUTJOBS-and PAY for your OWN litters, or get your dog style breeding selves FIXED!!!!)
DISGUSTING.
You just don't get it.

This has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with "entitlementalcase SLACKERTICS" draining the system. Their funds do not come from the Social Security Trust Fund.

FACT is after redemption of all trust fund asset reserves by the General Fund, all Social Security reserves will be expended in 2033. At that time, the tax income that has accrued on the reserves will be enough to pay three-quarter benefits through 2087.

This is the result of the large baby-boom generation entering retirement while lower-birth-rate generations are entering employment. Again, to repeat, it has absolutely nothing to do with "entitlementalcase Slackertics". And if something isn't done, it WILL happen.

Republicans should let ObamaCare crash and burn
Hospitals are shedding staff, and insurers are still pulling out of markets, both phenomena will exacerbate consumers' "access shock" in places like California and New Hampshire.
In Massachusetts -- the state-level laboratory for Obamacare -- an acute doctor shortage is becoming more severe, raising access concerns.
Obamacare expands this issue on a national scale.
which is why the current stalemate is important to make clear that Republicans are willing to fight on this issue while DemoKKKrats want to force ObamaKKKare down our throats by any means necessary...

lol! How true! Boehner should be thanking Obama and the dems!

"Boehner to Tea Party: Shut Yourself Down
By Margaret Carlson Oct 15, 2013 3:26 AM GMT-1000

“Thank you, Mr. President. Signed, John Boehner.”

Deep beneath the year-round tan, the Camel Ultra Lights and the merlot, there beats a grateful heart. Somebody had to take on the Tea Party that has turned Boehner’s tenure as House speaker into a living hell.

Too bad for Republicans, that someone was a Democrat rather than one of their own, which would have signaled that the party is fit to govern. By calling the bluff of a tiny band of burn-the-place-down Tea Party activists leading their colleagues over domestic (the government shutdown) and global (the debt ceiling) cliffs, Barack Obama exposed the fact that they didn’t come to Washington to fix anything, only to tear everything but air-traffic control down.

The meltdown on Capitol Hill doesn’t mean the end of the Tea Party. In fact, most of those lawmakers accurately point out that they are doing what the constituents in their painfully drawn, one-sided, overwhelmingly white, aging, anti-gay, anti-immigrant, science-denying districts want. Still, there are emerging signs -- from declining poll numbers to the breach with the Republican Party’s traditional business allies -- that the act is getting old. Mess with Democratic totems such as Social Security and nutritional programs for pregnant mothers, send Sarah Palin to Washington periodically to pour salt on open wounds, but don’t mess with Treasury bills and the markets...."

The best way to get rid of a bad policy is to let it be implemented.

And let the America idiots suffer the consequences.
