It was all about defunding Obamacare.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
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?
Yeah

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.
They vowed to defeat his ruinous policies and illegal actions, which is pretty much everything Oblama does. It will take decades to recover from this traitorous failure and pathological liar.

Maybe he needs to take a European trip? They love him over there, don't they?

My leaves need raking, would you like to take on the job? Might boost your self esteem to actually earn, as opposed to leeching.
Really? So then in your world, the middle class doesn't work?

Yes, the majority of voters do.

53% View Health Care Law Unfavorably

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.

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.

Leftwingers, hating on Mitt's underwear, evil Walmart, and we have heard this somewhere before.....

"In the 1960s and early 70s, the most prominent, vocal cultural movement was the New Left: a movement that condemned America and everything it stood for: individualism, material wealth, science, technology, capitalism."

What a crock.
The majority of Americans will continue to get insurance the way they always ave.
Those who buy as individuals will save money in the exchanges.
More people were intruded upon why the economic mess left by your buddy George W Bush.
As you cry about millions losing insurance (to get new policies), million lost their jobs (no new jobs available), lost their life's savings, lost their homes.
You people are just plain dumber than sh*t.
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.
