Gimmedats come in all shapes and incomes...

"As a long-time employee of the local Medicaid office, I have had the opportunity
to witness the diversion of applicants’ significant resources in order to obtain Medicaid coverage. It is not at all unusual to encounter individuals and couples with resources [beyond exempt resources] exceeding $500,000, some with over $1 million. There is no attempt to hide that this money exists; there is no need. There are various legal means to prevent those funds from being used to pay for the applicant’s nursing home care. Wealthy applicants for Medicaid’s nursing home coverage consider that benefit to be their right, regardless of their ability to pay themselves.
...
[I]ndividuals with resources above and beyond the level prescribed by law should not be allowed to fund their children’s inheritance while the taxpayers fund their nursing home care. I strongly believe that this is not a partisan issue. I also believe in the merits of the Medicaid program, but feel just as deeply that these issues regarding resource diversion need to be addressed."

This is where you and a diminishing numbers of liberals who also think like you miss the boat completely.
No one wants Obama to make choices for us.
His choices cost a lot more and force us to pay for things we neither want or need.
And he can't stop lying to us - about everything.
It's not that hard to understand really.
People who make bad choices never want to pay the piper when confronted with the price of their bad judgment. I would rather Obama make choices for you now than having the tax payer pick up the tab for your medical needs later because you had lousy insurance.

Slackers are far worse than those who desire health insurance but can't afford it. I have absolutely no sympathy for those who purchased lousy insurance AFTER the ACA was passed believing they could circumvent the law. NONE.

Progressive Gubbymint in action!

Living like kings!!!

"The Committee has found that federal taxpayers
have subsidized lavish lifestyles for many
executives in organizations that receive almost all of their funding through Medicaid. The Committee’s oversight work in this area was informed by an August 2011 New York Time article that exposed how top executives at the Young Adult Institute (YAI)–
a nonprofit that runs group homes for the developmentally disabled–used Medicaid funds to lease luxury cars,to paytuition bills and living expenses for their children, and to reward themselves with generous compensation packages.
53 In fact, four executives at the YAI(Phillip Levy, Joel Levy, Tom Dern, and Stephen Freeman) each
received compensati on in excess of $1 million in 2008, with money derived almost entirely from Medicaid."

It Wasn’t Broke, But Obama Fixed It Anyway

Bending to pressure, Obama announced a patch to health-care reform that will avoid more cancelled plans. But the plans were cancelled for a reason.

Most of the “plans” cancelled by insurers were junk—plans that gave peace of mind to consumers, but wouldn’t help them in the case of an emergency. They shouldn’t have been sold in the first place. And indeed, as Obama noted, part of the reason for health-care reform was that insurers were refusing to cover care for the millions of Americans who purchased these plans. Under the Affordable Care Act, this can no longer happen.

While that is an interesting opinion, it doesn't do a thing to bolster your opinion about Mitt Romney.

What was George W. Bush's lowest approval rating? 25%

So, let's recap...your guy lost and you were mad.

Your guy lost again and you are still bitter.

Get over it. You should be used to a disappointing life by now.

You have a country?

I am currently stationed in sand land for Uncle Sam. I have earned the right to say that but won't. You see, I recall the Dixie Chicks lead singer exercising her right to free speech and being vilified for it. Fools like you claimed that if she dare speak ill of the President that she should pack her bags and move away.

That advice seems appropriate for you. True patriots realize that attacking the United States from within helps our enemies do the same externally. Traitor.

Too many are talking mamby pamby discussing all this craziness so politely when we should be grabbing our pitchforks and storming the castle.
This president should be forced to step aside - by his own party.
He rejected any criticism of this law and the democrats called us every name in the book for doing the same.
Now that they're getting burnt by the fire they fueled, they have to be the ones to put it out.
Maybe NBC and CBS could help out the Magic Negro by editing more Sound Bites, eh?

...make it look like he didn't really say that you can keep your doctor, keep your old policy, etc.

Anything is possible when you combine lies on one side with wishful thinking on the other. They're a perfect fit.

No one is even talking about the hidden marriage tax in Obamacare.
A married couple who earns $62,040 or less for a family of two receives subsidies under Obamacare.
A married couple who earns just a dollar more, 62,041, could pay as much as $5000 or more in premiums.
Saying "I do" would cost some couples over $10,000 a year. The solution? Get a divorce.
Empty-nesters would pay an effective tax of $5,000 to $10,000 per year for the right to remain married.
