Ah, What's in a Name? Obamacare is gone, the ACA is back.
The Lyin' King didn’t say “Obamacare” once during his nearly hourlong news conference last week, while he referred to the “Affordable Care Act” a dozen times.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi went so far as to correct David Gregory on “Meet the Press” Sunday on the proper terminology.
And White House talking points distributed to Democrats and obtained by POLITICO repeatedly refer to the Affordable Care Act in suggested sound bites, not Obamacare.
Bengazikare is the latest name, much more fitting.

Anyone with GD brain knew that policies would have to meet certain guidelines.
Everyone with GD brain knew there was a grandfather clause that allowed insurance companies to continue existing plans.
The problem with you right whiners is that you are dumber that sh*t.
If you had a plan that was next to nothing, certainly you knew that was no longer OK.
If you had a real plan, then yes the ACA did nothing to stop that.


Anyone with a GD brain[clearly not idiots like you] knew that the outfit that can't run the Post Office or the IRS properly could never run the healthcare system for 300 plus million people. Benagazikare will never work. You're an idiot.

Incase you did'nt know, research the apostle Paul's version of CHRISTIANITY! It definitly does'nt match the version you follow. You worship the emperor constatine.
Listen up, loon. There's a huge difference between indoctrination into a religion and having the ability to "choose" whether to accept that indoctrination, or not, taken from you (against your will) via drugs, genetic manipulation or surgery like Harris suggests "someone"(the government) do to people who are believers.
"Religion" doesn't DO anything, people do. People who preach religion are only hoping their listeners will choose their Way, creeps like Harris want to make us incapable of that choice. I would rather take my chances with the ones who only "hope" to influence me, not the ones who prefer to force their will on me by removing my own. Owning our own will, we can choose to believe or not believe; having our will to choose either way removed by someone else is evil incarnate.
The god I was taught to follow holds all people accountable for their actions. Go back to your congregation of lost souls and tell them you've failed to bring another one into the fold. You are a liar for Oblivion.

True! Another thing is, constatine slaughtered millions of fellow Christians, in the name of Christianity, along with setting forth a crusade to rid the world of the original text. Then they call the dead sea scrolls fake because,they simply don't match their ideology. What can you expect from people who believe slavery was a blessing in disguise for black folks, and the bogus thanks giving story still taught in schools across the country, even after it's been debunked.

About a visit to the Obama WH...
"Larry Summers, former head of the National Economic Council, thought having Jarrett represent the White House was a mistake. Business leaders “felt patronized and offended by Valerie,” Summers told Woodward, largely due to her tendency to insist that she spoke for the president, and an approach to problem-solving that involved little more than scheduling multiple lunch meetings. One CEO complained to Alter that “when we go to the White House, we talk to people we wouldn’t hire.” Alter himself has likened Jarrett’s role in the White House to “the CEO putting his sister in charge of marketing.”

I had 2 Valerie Jarrets across from me in a courtroom once, neither one would even attempt to pronounce my last name, which believe me isn't very hard to do. How they got thru law school is a mystery.

"Pope issues mission statement for papacy
Email this Story
Nov 26, 4:09 PM (ET)
By NICOLE WINFIELD
VATICAN CITY (AP)- Pope Francis denounced the global financial system that excludes the poor as he issued the mission statement for his papacy on Tuesday, saying he wants the Catholic Church to get its hands dirty as it seeks to bring solace and mercy to society's outcasts.
In a 224-page document, Francis pulled together the priorities he has laid out over eight months of homilies, speeches and interviews, pushing to shift the church away from a focus on doctrine to one of joyful welcome in a bid to draw in believers in a world marked by secularization and vast income inequalities.
The document, Evangelii Gaudium,(The Joy of the Gospel), is the second major teaching document issued by Francis, but is the first actually written by him since the encyclical "The Light of Faith," issued in July, was penned almost entirely by Pope Benedict XVI before he resigned.
Francis' concerns are laced throughout, and the theological and historical citations leave no doubt about his own points of reference and priorities: Popes John XXIII and Paul VI, who presided over the Second Vatican Council, which brought the church into the modern world, are cited repeatedly.
And in a first for an apostolic exhortation, as this type of papal pronouncement is called, Francis cited various documents of bishops' conferences from around the world, an indication of the importance he places in giving the local church greater say in church governance.
In the text, Francis denounced trickle-down economic theories as unproven and naive, saying they are based on a survival of the fittest mentality "where the powerful feed upon the powerless" with no regard for ethics, the environment or even God.
"Money must serve, not rule!" he said in calling for political leaders to reform the system. "The Pope loves everyone, rich and poor alike, but he is obliged in the name of Christ to remind all that the rich must help, respect and promote the poor."
In a direct challenge to the focus of the past two popes, he also decried the church's "obsession" with rules and doctrine and said in some cases, the church's old customs can be cast aside if they no longer serve to communicate the faith.
In the church's "hierarchy of truths," mercy is paramount, proportion is necessary, and what counts is inviting the faithful in, he said.
At the same time, Francis restated the church's opposition to abortion, making clear that the doctrine is non-negotiable and is at the core of the church's insistence on the dignity of every human being.
The aim of the text was to set out his idea of what the Catholic Church should be, and how its priests, bishops and even the pope must change course to fulfill the task.
"I prefer a church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security," he wrote. "I do not want a church concerned with being at the center and then ends up by being caught up in a web of obsessions and procedures."..."
I skipped over about 500 posts to find this... It bares repeating:

"In the text, Francis denounced trickle-down economic theories as unproven and naive, saying they are based on a survival of the fittest mentality "where the powerful feed upon the powerless" with no regard for ethics, the environment or even God.

"Money must serve, not rule!" he said in calling for political leaders to reform the system. "The Pope loves everyone, rich and poor alike, but he is obliged in the name of Christ to remind all that the rich must help, respect and promote the poor."

Well, not really sure what you're talking about or to which scriptures you're referring.

But your heart will tell you what you need to know when it's ready to know it. It will be in the right place when that happens. The scriptures say the word of God is foolishness to unbelievers. Only the Holy Spirit reveals its truths.

However, unfortunately, this is not the right forum to go into a lot of depth on the subject - as much as I would like.

It's not my job to bring you into the fold. A soul will remain lost until it chooses to find itself. You're the fool who feels the need to, go thru another sinful individual to find God. I found him in me! You need a man to preach to you, words you can read yourself. I comprehend very well! Religion is evil incarnate. It's division, which creates conflict and reason for wars, the most profitable resource on the planet.
