President Obama said Wednesday that he feels "enormous frustration" with Republicans in Congress and their efforts to block his legislative agenda.

"Sometimes people ask me,'Man, how do you stay optimistic because it just seems like a bunch of problems piling up on your desk and it doesn't seem like you're getting a lot of help from the other side?'" Obama said at a fundraising event in Boston.

The president said that it's been a challenging year with the Newtown, Mass. shooting and the Boston marathon bombings.

"We would have hoped that coming out of those two tragedies that we would see a new spirit in Congress of people pulling together and rolling up sleeves and working on the things a broad spectrum of Americans agree on, but that's not what we got," he said. "Instead we got more obstruction and more resistance to getting anything done, most recently culminating in a shutdown that was entirely unnecessary.”

Wow. Just wow. So you are so opposed to the IDEA of saving money that you wont even find out if you can get a $13000 pay raise?
Please read the entire story for the rest but the third was more of the same. Had not even TRIED to see if the ACA would save them money.
In some ways I am sad for those on the Right who watch this junk and deny themselves the opportunity to save money. On the other hand thats $13000 they cant give to some TeaPublican campaign or spend at WalMart, PapaJohns or some other nut job approved company. And because the lies on the show are so clear, it lets me know that Fox cant pretend they were misinformed or mislead. They lied and they know they lied. Even better, they know they HAVE to lie because the truth is just too painful.
Are you supporting shopping at evil rich white guy founded WalMart?

Too reminiscent for my taste of another dark time in history when another man believed he could single-handedly change the world. And was praised by the masses who believed it too.

Not making a direct comparison, mind you, and Americans are at least waking up. But the magnitude of this president's disconnect and self-importance is sometimes too disturbing.

The power elite already pretend like we don't exist. That's democracy for 'ya. At least it was.

It's the dumb and dumber I'm worried about. Which one are you again?

How do you justify requiring older childless people to have pregnancy services, pediatric child care, etc?
Why require people to have prescription drug coverage, particularly when it is optional under Medicare?
Why require mental health coverage?
If I may...

It's Obama's vision of redistribution of wealth. Others pay more for services they don't need to cover those who get it for free.

Again, Obama told us his vision and where he was going to lead us from the very beginning.

People either weren't listening or didn't want to.

If insurance companies include prenatal/maternity services on a policy for an "older, childless couple", it will obviously not be utilized by them....therefor, will not cost the insurance company anything.
Prescription drug coverage is a must these days, especially as we age. Do you know anyone over the age of 60 who is not taking a prescription medication?
Why require mental health services? Are you kidding me with this question?
In all cases, you are forcing people to pay for services that they do not want or need.

Galt knows many older people who avoid prescription drugs.

Seeking mental health treatment is dangerous to your employment, Second Amendment rights, and many other aspects of life, so most people will not seek such treatment voluntarily.

lol! You can't marginalize or demonize those who do it to themselves son.

All anyone can do is point it out and hope their intelligence will help them figure out what to do!

They can't stand that President Obama is delivering healthcare to the American people despite all of their stupid wasteful hearings; how much did those hearings cost?
He killed Bin Laden, he delivered healthcare, he got the Syrians to dismantle their chemical weapons....the list goes on. He's phenomenal.
Then, the next Democratic President, Hillary will tweek it into universal single payer healthcare!!
The Democrats are looking out for the folks!
delivering healthcare? Hahahaha...moron. He's forcing people to buy insurance, nothing more.

Why is drug coverage a "must" when one can simply pay cash?

looks like we have another demographic in America with ethics problems...

Doesn't anyone follow the rules in America?
Why?

"Data from national surveys reveal a trend for 50- to 59-year-olds: the number of those reporting past-month abuse of illicit drugs — including the non-medical use of prescription drugs — more than doubled from 2002 to 2010, going from 907,000 to 2,375,000, or from 2.7 to 5.8 percent in this population."
