Really? So then in your world, the middle class doesn't work?

Yes, the majority of voters do.

The new findings include 18% with a Very Favorable view of the law, while 42% have a Very Unfavorable one.

Funny, the 18% with a "very favorable" view roughly coincides with the number of Americans that claim to be liberal.

No less than Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, stated very early in Obama's first term that the GOP's top priority was to defeat him.
Not fix the financial crisis or get us out of the recession.
Mr. Fib,

Besides wealth redistribution and the flop Oblamakare, Oblama and his boy at the Feds priority seems to be propping up Wall Street fatcats and the largest banks with $85 billion a month, none of it creating jobs.
With $85 billion a month, couldn't someone create some jobs? Where's the swag going? You getting some? Besides your normal welfare freebies?

You're right on this one; this is why the insurance companies should be dismantled and universal single payer healthcare paid through taxation is the only way to go. Healthcare should not be a for profit business.
Insurance companies are like a mafia; they write policies with pages of disclaimers and terms of use that no one reads until they're being wheeled into surgery and someone in admissions is running after them demanding a check.
Those who don't read all contracts that they enter are fools.

Suppose he is right and you are wrong.....that would presume that we would be far better off if 100% of the people worked for the government. Sort of like communism. I think history has proven that strategy to be a failure.

Well, you're right. It did start out that way. If only they had succeeded. Just think. We'd be saved from the train wreck that's derailing and the website hasn't even revealed the sticker shock millions of young and healthy will soon experience.
There's no way under God's green earth the number of people needed to sign up to pay higher premiums, higher deductibles and more out-of-pocket expenses for insurance they don't want or need will materialize.
What were they thinking, RealDave?
That we'd fall prostrate before big government telling us what's best for us when it's going to cost a lot more money?
Or were they thinking, "Shut up, we know what's good for you, just give us your friggin' money and be grateful"?
Is that what they were thinking, RealDave?
So is it the diabetes or the vodka that keeps you from knowing whose post you're responding to??

That colander head o yours is just unrepairable, isn't it?

I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.

The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html

The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.

For Mr. Colander head and Mr. Fib:

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.

The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.

So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.

You own it, girls

""my Dad met a stranger who was new to our small town. From the beginning, Dad was fascinated with this enchanting newcomer and soon invited him to live with our family.""

The 'enchanting newcomer' is the giveaway.

'soon invited him to live with our family' is further proof.

It sounds like a gay novella.

You didn't even realize your Dad led a double life, I see.

Wonder why everyone calls you a nitwit??

It IS crystal clear that Obama "don't care" about anyone that doesn't support his agenda.
