The lies keeps pouring in for supporters of the Affordable Care Act. Heading into the final day to signup for an individual health plan in the federal and state marketplaces, a new poll was released by ABC News and the Washington Post that shows the popularity for the ACA at an all-time low. For the first time in the poll’s history, more people have an un favorable view of the health care law than those who oppose it.
In this most recent poll, 29% of Americans responded that they supported the ACA. Meanwhile, 68% said they were not in favor of the law.

Socialism is like the annual weed problem in lawns and gardens; some years are worse than others but, eventually, the weed-pullers and weed-killers arrive to bring nature back to its intended state.

The Magic Negro is leading a ghost parade backward against a rising Conservative one. He will soon be trampled by the elephants. Europe has grown weary of the empty lies, thefts and failed policies of Socialism but the Magic Negro wants to follow what they *did* in years past. He is a jerk behind the times.

Notice how the author of this WP piece keeps comparing Europe's swing to the Right as an entrance of a European Tea Party - as if this is a bad thing. Snide and subtle, Liberal Media here never stops the propaganda.

Social conservatives are mobilizing in France, leading to talk of a tea party: http://tinyurl.com/ot6k8t8

Against all odds and expectations, enrollments in health plans qualified under the Affordable Care Act are surging Monday toward -- and maybe beyond -- the 7-million figure projected by the Congressional Budget Office before Oct. 1, when the open-enrollment period began. The deadline for starting enrollment applications for 2014 plans is midnight Monday.
The surge is creating a big problem for the "train wreck" narrative of Republican opponents of the ACA, who have been holding out hope for Obamacare's utter failure. So the excuse-making has begun.

No one who already has insurance is being asked to help pay for some needier person or small business who needs the Government subsidy to help pay . People who don't want to buy health insurance will have to pay the 95 dollars or 10% on their taxes (whichever is greater). So, every one pulls their weight on affordable healthcare.

Liberals never tire of trying to depict Right & Left as Black & White. If you are Conservative then you must like Chris Christie and John McCain and agree with everything they say. Period.

They never tire of labeling those who abhor Socialism and Statism as being somehow redneck, low IQ savages who need to be put down by the intelligent, highly educated, compassionate and humane Liberals.

If you believe in the value of the 2nd Amendment then you must be an Adam Lanza wacko who wants to kill innocent children.

If you express a belief that our freedoms are being further and faster trampled by this administration then you must be a wacko faithful Fox News watcher.

Their twisted reality is something very dangerous and ominous, something to keep a watchful eye on. They are sharpening their guillotines to take out the "aristocracy" of Conservatives.

Tea Party activist Ginni Thomas, the wife of conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, spoke to an anti-abortion rights activist who said that President Barack Obama was like a “tyrant” because the United States had a secular government.
In an interview for her column in The Daily Caller that was published on Sunday, Ginni Thomas asked anti-choice crusader Lila Rose of Live Action how to “stop the erosion” in America’s culture.
Rose predicted that history books would say that the U.S.“wandered from our principles, but we came right back to them.”
According to Rose, those principles mean that “god is a higher power than any man-made structure of government.”

Funny that you mention it. I still recall during Bubba Clinton's election campaign how Hillary went on an ABC(I think) morning program to demonstrate how she made her favorite chocolate chip cookies.

I nearly choked watching her. A cold, feminist lawyer showing Middle America what a great homemaker she is. It worked!!!

The Racist-In-Chief and his Henchman Eric Racist Holder are at it again, folks. They will try doing as much damage as possible before they are forced to leave the White House. Fight the bas turds.

> Suspension of preschool children. African-American students represent 18% of preschool enrollment but 42% of preschool students suspended once and 48% of preschool students suspended more than once.

It is a common fallacy that Government can and should fix social problems. Economic and Security issues, sure, government can do a lot. But as the above data shows, the black community has an internal problem that needs to be addressed internally. Blacks comprise something like 12% of the population and yet black male prison populations are something like 35%. Reading the FBI stats on black crime can send shivers up your spine. I wouldn't be caught dead living in a high density black community - or maybe I would.

Yet this racist President says "Americans should search their hearts about how they treat young black men" and now this further racist ploy. The unspoken assumption here is that the failures of the black community are somehow not their fault and "we" must do something(read: spend more of our money) to fix it.

The Great Society died the day it was born over 50 years ago. Trillions of dollars later, we are still being told we need to spend more.

Government cannot fix social problems. Any attempt by the government to do so immediately labels it as a politically and socially exploitative group of dangerous individuals and needs to be stopped.

No deficit, The bill was fully funded. Im guessing this is confusing to alt after all those years Republicans passing bills & not caring about funding them. Like Galt's prescription plan under Medicare. Galt gobbles pills & up goes the deficit.

The two questions two other posters asked are still unanswered.
How many have paid? How many are on Medicare?
Jay Carney says no one in this administration knows. The truth is likely they don't want US to know.
Well Carol, insurers have in fact reported that between 80% and 90% have already paid their premiums. Medicare is for those 65 and older nitwit, so how is that even relevant? Perhaps you're thinking of Medicaid? Since you don't know the difference between the debt and the deficit or regional weather and global climate why should anyone expect you to know the difference between these two programs?
And who cares anyway except someone like you? I think most Americans would be happy that those less fortunate are going to get their medical needs covered. It's what a functioning and moral society does.

Sure reichtard. Funded just like Social Security? Every person except a zombie like you knows o_Commie_Care (AKA: Unaffordable Heath Care Scam) will cost much more than what Obama (Liar of the year) and Socialist Party told us.

Keep on talking sh*t, because you are dumber than sh*t.

I clearly stated that my number did not include growing corn.

What happens to the water when you grow corn? Where does it go? What happens to the water that is not absorbed by the plant? What happens to the water that the plant absorbs?

What happens to the water used to produce oil? Its toxic.

As you rant on about ethanol, it's purpose was to reduce oil imports & keep money in this country.

It was not done t reduce greenhouse gases. It was to save oil & replace it with a renewable source.
