Hey, we get it. You're a Socialist/Marxist. Many of us are ignorant of all the facts involving your choice of an all-powerful, all-controlling government. I DO know countless Americans have died to keep your ilk out of OUR government. We also get Socialism/Marxism has been an abject failure worldwide.
BTW, Obamacare has NOTHING to do with making sure everyone is covered. It has everything to do with making sure everyone is controlled by the government.
Oh, and thanks for watching Hannity.
Still doesn't explain why you are happy to pay the government to maintain a military yet say no to medicine. You explain the fine details how this is different ? Yes to bullets but no to bandages!
Yes to schools, Yes to water and power, Yes to law & order, Yes to security, Yes to roads and infrastructure but NO to health!
That is Tea bagger Taliban logic if ever one could label it or just plain insanity. Calling just one arm of the government reach socialist while ignoring all the other arms it's quite happy to be wrapped in proves it!

Agreed; everyone should always shower after watching Obama. Your problem is taking one in vodka with your mouth open.

The Affordable Care Act is also doing a bang-up job of raising insurance premiums.
This is another thing Barack Obama lied shamelessly and routinely about – remember, he promised his scheme would reduce the average insurance premium by $2500 per year.
In reality, he and everyone else connected with this scam knew it would blow premiums through the roof, thanks to the heavy burden of its mandates. They’ve been tacitly admitting this over the past few days, when they sneer that your old, affordable coverage was sub-standard junk you were foolish to have been satisfied with.
Hardest hit will be a group our social health is entirely dependent upon: large families.
If 93 million are losing their insurance, who will pay for the 11 million freeloaders insurance?

Medicine? is this what you are worried about? Like I have said for years. O'bamacare is not about health and it is not about care--O'bamacare is about medicating the masses--thanks for proving my point. You drug induced liberals are useful idiots sometimes, and the sad part is: you don't even know it. ROTFLMAO.

Even liberals are turning on the ONE: Many Americans that were formerly in favor of Obamacare are now against it after they have seen what it is going to do to their budgets. The following is one example of this from a recent Los Angeles Times article...

Pam Kehaly, president of Anthem Blue Cross in California, said she received a recent letter from a young woman complaining about a 50% rate hike related to the healthcare law.

"She said,'I was all for Obamacare until I found out I was paying for it,'" Kehaly said.

Obamacare actually includes incentives for people to work less and make less money. The following is one example from a recent article by Sean Davis...

In California, a couple earning $64,000 a year would not qualify for health care subsidies. A bronze plan for them through Kaiser would cost them about $1,300 each month, or $15,600 a year. But if that same family earned just $2,000 less, it would qualify for over $14,000 in annual health care subsidies, dropping their premiums for that same Kaiser plan to less than $100 per month.

This article was very revealing. An excerpt:

"In approaching teachers to write for the series I was surprised how many at first hesitated. It wasn't because they were too busy or didn't have anything to say. Some had even written drafts and then gotten cold feet about going public. None of the articles were vindictive or critical of their school administrations. None was personal attacks or a fault-finding feast. If anything the pieces were warmhearted, funny, and insightful. What criticism there was was directed toward our national education policy and its harmful effect on students. Still, in the end, a few teachers backed out altogether while others asked that their full name not be used or that their schools' location be purposely vague.

"And there's the fear. Teachers were worried that somehow they would get in trouble with their school administrators. From what many teachers report there's a strong message being given to teaching staffs: Don't rock the boat. Don't ask questions. Don't bring up the inconvenient truth, say, of a school policy implemented to meet a national mandate that contradicts current research or best practices. In such an atmosphere of distrust, powerlessness, and alienation from what should be a culture of collegiality and collaboration, what choices do teachers have but to hunker down and try to survive?"

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-chura/why...

This is why I've never looked back. Even as a teacher in a relatively small town in Central Florida, this subtle kind of bullying by administrators and the unspoken rules - "don't make anyone mad" and "don't make waves" - were quite prevalent and even intimidating.

This, on top of the political correctness that made everyone feel like they were walking on eggshells.

Wasn't my idea of a healthy school environment.

Another teacher once told me that if you cared, you wouldn't make it. I always prided myself on the fact I didn't because I did care...a lot.

It's going to be interesting watching the lights come on in a lot of Americans' heads after the website is up and running again.

The stories flooding the airwaves now are just the tip of the iceberg. Most people have no idea signing up for the exchanges are quite exhaustive and confusing or the costs that await them.

In smaller towns and rural areas, that's usually the case. But in cities and especially the inner cities, school vouchers could very well change the direction of many children's life. They would eliminate schools that are nothing more than breeding grounds for gangs and violence and no-win futures and would hold teachers and administrators accountable by putting pressure on bad schools who were losing students to better and private schools.
Vouchers would be a God-send to parents and children in many high-risk areas of the country. Why would anyone deny them a more hopeful future?
Taxpayer financing of private schools would be a mistake....financing of religious schools in particular....

the way to hold teachers and administrators accountable is to fire them if they fail to perform....
