Chris Dodd (D), Barack Obama (D), and John Kerry (D) were the top three campaign donor recipients.

When you think about it, it's pretty odd that the banks would give as much money as they did to Senators like Kerry, Dodd and Obama. Because they were not the majority party.

As to which of the two parties is more permissive of corporate scams, take a wild guess.

Defense rests.

Well let's see ...

2008? What's a year, give or take?

Obama Care? Oh, I put a space between the Obama and the Care?

OH, YES! The Name!
It sure as shyzer can't be ObamaCare - It Isn't & He Doesn't .. Same with Affordable Care Act - It 'Aint' & He 'Don't'!

So, it must be the word research(ing) that's got you stymied.

Didn't do YOUR research, didja?

Only time will tell. I'm willing to give the ACA a chance to get on it's feet. What I don't understand is the selfishness displayed by Republicans in attacking a program that is designed to help the excluded in society. All I can think of it resides in that "idolatry of money" that Pope Francis mentioned in his platform.
In 2008 Obama said that there were 10 million people with out health insurance. Because of Obama's policies,today there are 44 million people with out health insurance. Obama announced his plan in September to launch his ObamaKare website and pledged to sign up 7 millions people with health insurance by March 2014. That would be a net loss of 37 million people. Only thousands of people are signing up for health insurance policies,that is a fraction of the number of people that Obama is signing up for medicaid programs. We didn't need the ObamaKare bill to sign people up for medicaid programs. We didn't need a ObamaKare bill that adversely effects 285 million people in order to sign a few million people up for medicaid programs.

Most of the people that are signing up on these ObamaKare web sites are signing up for Medicaid programs. The states have to pay for Medicaid programs, if the numbers are as high as Obama wants, every state will be bankrupt by 2017. Unlike Obama,states are required to produce a balanced budget every year and can not just borrow the money or print the money.

Prerequisites for GOP membership:

1. Greed is good.

2. Money is more important than people.

3. Launching an unnecessary war to make corporate profit is Good.

4. Poor people deserve to suffer, and it would be better yet if we could exterminate them.

5. Corporations are the only true form of responsible government.

6. Rich people are the only ones who count.

All Republicans have brain-scramble chips implanted in their heads.

At the first sign of rational thought, the chip activates, resulting in a stream of gibberish.

Followed by "Greed is good... Greed is good... Greed is good".
