Well now that we have Obamacare there is no more need for that.

Hmmm....
Good thing a conservative "black walnut" didn't win the presidency. You might have been sounded like a racist.
lol! I hate to tell you this, but that's what a 'conservative black walnut' called himself.

If you had followed the last election, you'd have known that. Just like how he call Romney 'vanilla.'

Seems you have a problem with racism son...

Right whiners complaining Obama didn't fix their mess fast enough while ignoring that Republicans have filibustered job bills while the House has done nothing but pass legislation that repeals, defunds or weakens the ACA.
"real dumb"
You lie.
The house has passed a number of bills, it is the senate under the control of hairless reed that does the filibustering. There are near 30 bills passed by the house that reed will not allow to come up for a vote.
As to the aca act, a majority of American's do not support the boon doggle. A majority of American's prefer to make their own decisions and do not want or need uncle to make decisions for them.

The Diminishing Returns of Republican “Pro-Israel” Politics

You’ll notice that Republican sympathy with Israel started skyrocketing at the start of the last decade and has now climbed to an all-time high. What Republicans consistently keep missing is that all of this is gradually working to their disadvantage. Part of this comes from ignoring the fact that most Americans now tend to recoil from knee-jerk hawkishness in general, but it’s also a result of grossly overestimating how popular the status quo on Israel policy is. As Republicans become more resolutely and uniformly a party of “pro-Israel” hawks, they are separating themselves more and more from the rest of the country.

Polls have consistently found that a large majority believes that the U.S. shouldn’t take sides in the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. It was an article of faith endorsed by members of both parties during Hagel’s confirmation hearing that Israel is an extremely important ally, but most Americans don’t perceive Israel as an ally at all. As new cohorts of voters begin participating more regularly in elections, Republicans will find that their increasingly hard-line “pro-Israel” position has taken them into a political cul-de-sac.

From page 4 as you indicated

**********
Independents, a sometimes swing-voting group, favor Republican House candidates by 55-32 percent (among those who say they’re certain to vote). And, as with views on control of Congress, perceptions of the economy correlate with congressional vote preference, regardless of partisanship.

Democrats have a 6-point lead in trust to handle “the main problems the nation faces”– although, as with all others, that narrows among likely voters, in this case to 37-40 percent, a numerical (but not significant) GOP edge.

The Republicans have a 9-point advantage in trust to handle the federal deficit – an improvement for the party from last month. Similarly, Americans by a 7-point margin trust the Republicans over Obama to find the right mix of spending to cut and federal programs to maintain.

**********

Not surprising that you would see the above statements as a democratic party edge. But then you never have dealt in reality.

But when they have sheep like you to do their will and spread their fabricated stories daily,
"poop"
Speaking of fabricating stories why do you not tell us when your bio/fantasy is to be released? Or is it just a fabrication on your part?

It's not just Biden and Reid but the whole damned Progressive Socialist Ultra Left Wing Liberal Democrat movement. The Magic Boy is a hypocrite on race. Little Alvin Sharpton has a racist rap sheet as long as your arm but the Liberal Media will never take him to task on it. Never. Jesse Jackson has spouted some nasty racial jokes in front of witnesses, lied and said some bizarrely racist things but will never be called on it..
The list is endless and the hypocrisy is a stench that cannot and should not be ignored.
There is no honor among them whatsoever. That shouldn't be ignored either.

A video showing a black guy complaining or looking at all of south side Chicago means nothing.(Its been over 25 years since Obama was a community organizer there)
Here I thought you whiners were all about getting people off welfare & to be self supporting& then for political reasons you trash a man that went into a poor neighborhood & did exactly that.
Speaking of being self supporting, did you quit that subsidized job yet & man up & make your own way??
That must be why Chicago is such a great place to live today.
