Yeah, yeah, yeah...whatever.
The concept of Democrats eventually losing their power is beyond your grasp of comprehension, I know.
But try real hard and imagine if Republicans are put back in power in both the Congress and the Presidency.
And remember the Republicans have power over the IRS and the NSA including YOUR health care...YOUR taxes...and YOUR privacy.
See how it feels to be a conservative?
Neither party nor government should ever have that kind of power.
I know what it'll be like, don't even have to imagine. Just have to look at the last time and expect bigger government, wars and more deficits.

Why did spending increase $300 billion once the teabaggers got control of the pursestrings?

You're party is over; you're just too dense to get it.
Like I told Tenzing, it's not time to clap yet. The Democrats are playing the next part solo. Let's wait and see how well they play.

The Republicans have left the stage. Democrats are on their own.

Some of us have rotten tomatoes ready. But we'll give them a chance to pull this off before throwing them in the garbage.

But don't clap just yet. It's still not over. The Democrats are warming up to play.

Because socialized medicine is the first step to controlling the people.
This administration stopped just short of shouting it from the rooftops that they want bigger government and more control.
If providing better health care and more accessible care to the people was truly the goal of this president, the first step would have been to find logical and common sense ways to lower the costs of health care.
There will still be 30 million uninsured according to the CBO even if everyone else in the country signs up.
The ACA was a ruse to make government bigger and to have more control in our lives.
Because liberals constantly confuse gullibility with compassion, you fell for it.
Anyone can go to any ER and get treatment. If you don't think millions of people will still do that without signing up, you're TOO gullible. Is Obamacare going to turn them away?
So, Obama controls all Medicare &Medicaid people?

What has he been forcing them to do for him?

What did Bush make them do?

Well, actually, no it isn't.
Obama had a Democratic-controlled Congress during his first two years. Why in the world would he think Republicans were even necessary to pass Obamacare - his personal vision to fundamentally transform this country?
Obama and his corrupt Chicagoans did not want to let a good crisis go to waste. Republicans would have forced them to focus on jobs and the economy instead.
Doesn't take a genius such as yourself to figure this one out.
He had no use for Republicans. When they became a thorn in his side in 2010, he systematically went about trying to destroy them.
It's elementary, my dear Watson.
Your post, as written, was an outright lie. This one is jibberrish.

Are you just trolling for responses?

<quoted text> Yeah for the most part it's a scam. Three card monty. You place your bet and spin the wheel. The insurance I have paid on my trucks over the years is enough money to buy them all twice. Never had an accident. I would have been better off putting that money into a good rate of return account and more than doubled my money.
You are one warped puppy. Just one accident that happens every day that wipes out a whole family by a medicated or a driver trying to make up time could cost millions idiot. Personally I see little difference between you and old DB, I believe very little you have to say. It's way more than obvious that you both are under achievers and insecure.

Then I get home last night and there is a tv ad run by my Republican controlled state government about the new voter id law which is not exactly in effect, in fact they state this disclaimer -
"Next time you vote you may be asked but are not required to provide id" or something to that effect
Why are they wasting my tax dollars with this nonsense???
Why are you worried about providing identification, which will prevent others from stealing your vote?

does that ad mention that you can give them the middle finger? if so, no waste there. if not, i think you should quit paying your state taxes.
In small towns the people working at the polls are often your friends and neighbors and that kind of behavior has consequences.

Ted Cruz said they have to stop Obamacare BEFORE people get a chance to like it. That's how fcked up their thinking is.
Here, you'll love these guys:
Seven Principles Of The Constitution Party:
Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death;
Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed individual;
Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted;
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.
He meant before they get a chance to like being more dependent on the government...US!

It's much harder to say, "no, you can't have your free stuff anymore" than to say, "no, you can't have any free stuff at someone else's expense...period."

There were much better ways to reform health care. Not sure if you're ever going to get that.

I'm going to throw one of my rotten tomatoes at you.

So tell my why a majority vote is not a majority of votes cast?

You f*cking idiots say the dumbest f*cking sh*t.

a : a usually formal expression of opinion or will in response to a proposed decision; especially : one given as an indication of approval or disapproval of a proposal, motion, or candidate for office
b : the total number of such expressions of opinion made known at a single time (as at an election)

d : ballot 1

If you ask me if I was one of them people paying $1000 a month I think I would just deposit that money every week, make some interest, and then get insurance if and when I got sick. Hell if you didn't get any major medical problems for 40 years, like me, that would add up to some serious dough. Plus you could use the money for any minor medical.
As you've told everyone here already, your wife was severely injured in a work related accident. What was the total of that bill plus the various treatments that likely continue to this day? And how would you have paid it in the absence of workers comp and whatever other coverages she had at the time.

facebook hates obamacare: Read the hate-filled posts and see ads pandering to blacks and hispanics...

"Carole Pratt facebook:- I have had my own private policy that I will not be able to afford to keep once the rates triple per the letter I received from Humana. I'm not eligible for "affordable" coverage on the exchange, don't qualify for subsidy. I am living, documented proof this is system will not work for me. No propaganda here."
