It's a Christmas miracle!! Just when I have come to accept you as incapable of learning anything, you make a statement that makes sense! It's a Christmas miracle.
It's no miracle. You've just been brainwashed into stereotyping and labeling anyone who doesn't drink the left wing, socialist mead.

A miracle would be your ilk realizing that skin color, gender, and sexual preference doesn't qualify someone as a victim.

What you need to do is make up your mind. If you don't believe in giving a hand up to those who have been held down by social and economic forces, then resign yourself to supporting them through entitlement programs. Here in America, we ARE our brother's keeper.

That's a very strange world you reside in Peewee. When i'm at my house in the mountains I go to bed almost nightly at 9PM and get up 5-6 next morning. It's way beyond obvious that paranoia has more than taken it's toll on your pretending azz.

Big government is big government's keeper. They can't even "keep" themselves at any level of efficiency and competency.

There will ALWAYS be a safety net in place because we are a compassionate people. But WE are our brother's keeper.

Big government couldn't give a flip about you or your brother. They want power and control over you and your brother.

Won't you ever get that at some point? Seriously.

I think you nailed it, son!
Merry Christmas to all patriots and citizens who respect and defend our Constitution.
Always remember what anti-American, left wing, Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsberg said: "I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012." Liberal/Progressive democrats hate our Constitution.
Liberal/Progressive democrats hate our Constitution because they think we're too stupid to govern ourselves. Nevermind we did just fine until they came along and poisoned the minds of Americans into believing they need to be governed and told what to do by the elite few.

That's the whole thing in a nutshell.

Hope you had a very Merry Christmas, Ray.

Giving a hand up is no longer the issue. Big government providing a permanent lifestyle on the backs of others is.

There were far better solutions to lowering the costs of health care and to make major changes so that health care was assessable to everyone - without total chaos, higher costs and more people without insurance than before.

I'm actually anticipating next year in the hopes that progressive liberalism and big government will finally be exposed for what it is. We can start over again and be a lot smarter about it the next time.

If that happens, even you might be surprised.

Sadly, I see your Christmas spirit didn't make it through the day. Funny, just a few post back it was "Ray" who was accusing liberals of "automatically labeling people who disagree with your agenda as 'stupid'." "Ray" says THAT is stupid and dumb.

You'd think they'd figure out if they intentionally squeeze themselves between that rock and a hard place, they're going to get stuck.

They don't want regular people helping others. They want big government to do it for us...I mean them.

You people are always great at claiming "there were far better solutions" but you never present any alternatives. Never! Single payer was an option but Republicans shot it down. Other than "repeal Obamacare"; allowing the purchase of health insurance across state lines; reforming malpractice laws so doctors are protected and patients are left high and dry; and forcing people with pre-existing conditions to purchase expensive insurance through high risk pools what else you got? Absolutely nothing. Guess that is why you are known as the party of "no". You have NO solutions.

Merry Christmas, Frank.
Our country DOES deserve better than a fraud who needed to use deceit and repeated lies in order to guarantee the government take over of the health insurance industry.
I predict the food industry will be attacked next. They'll say "how dare evil corporations profit from a basic human need?" Just you wait and see.
Odd though, isn't it, that the left condones exorbitant tuition cost to students and ridiculous salaries and benefits to tenured professors - profiting from a basic right that everyone 'deserves' called an education.
After all the lies health care is still not working, wonder when he is going give up? Everyone but him knows it's over, would some of his kind please tell him, if you don't tell him he won't know it, you don't him to keep on making a fool of himself.

That's bullshit. One of the most viable solutions was to allow interstate competition for insurance companies that "you people" wanted nothing to do with. "You people" won't even listen to solutions that fly in the face of your Government Knows Best mantra.

Agreed.

Do not bring up the word work when speaking of "poop". He is one of the elite he does not work, he depends on others to provide his food stamps, his health care, his rent subsidy. In his mind work is only for the ignorant.
