And please, please, poor Missouri remember the Republicans when your family, friends whose income throws them in the coverage gap, get ill or in accident because Missouri Republicans refused to participate in the Medicaid expansion (with Federal dollars) just to spite President Obama. And it hurts our working poor. Depending on a job for health insurance? Well, hope you don't change jobs, get fired, get laid off, have your employers reduce the benefit plan, have your employer declare bankruptcy etc because you will see what it is like being one of the uninsured. I am going to remember those Republican obstructionists and willing partners with the Koch brothers, et al.

I didn't even know it's time to vote...sometimes I think voting is a waste of time. They're gonna do what they want in the end. Plus the people that needs help have troubles getting it and the people that get help don't really need all the hours they get.Those people are usually related to someone that works for the state.
With an attitude like that we could be a socialist country in no time. Keep thinking your vote doesn't count and it won't be long that it doesn't. If you give up your right to vote and don't vote then you deserve no rights.

Well, let's just liven it up and talk about how bad this Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is. For the life of me I do not understand why people cannot see what is really happening here. This is not all about healthcare..........it is about control! CONTROL OF THE PEOPLE! Look how many people are already suffering because of this train wreck. Can we Americans get any dumber? Remember the three stooges? Well, they are back! Let's just spread the wealth around and who really gets hurt in that deal? THE MIDDLE CLASS....as usual! People on SS who have worked hard can't even get a decent COL raise because they haven't taken care of the funds. The government needs to stay out of healthcare. They have proven that with medicare and Medicaid. It just goes on and on and on! Too much red tape and too many people that don't have a clue what they are doing.

CHEERS!

Yep, he's that guy at the Tea Party rally who's been on Medicare for years now, holding the sign that says "Keep your Government hands off of my health care!" Sadly, the irony of that is lost on him and most of the other Tea Party members.

Some (Many) folks are truly in need ... the government is mucking with their health in serious ways. This really is not a humourous topic and it's not just those in TEA Parties or any parties for that matter - Children, the elderly, our service men and women, the poor with serious health complications ... people are going to die because they are unfortunate enough to have needed help from the government.

Just saying

Peace and Happy Holidays

Just saying..........who is the government? In case you don't know.....it is the people, the people of America! No, it is not a humerous subject. What about the people that have lost their healthcare because of this train wreck......especially those that have terminal illnesses? They got their cart before the horse! It is about spreading the wealth. What about all the doctors and hospitals that are not accepting the Affordable Care Act (what a joke)? What's affordable about it? I just imagine this has spoiled some people's "Happy Holidays", huh?

We are the government and We are the ones that have to pay! People tend to forget that!

CHEERS!

Well, I certainly hope you don't have to choke on your words! I don't know everything but I , at least, have some common sense! It is a no-brainer if you would just stop a minute and think about it. However, that's the problem..........people just shoot off their mouth whether they know what they are talking about...or not!

CHEERS!

How's that Obamacare working out for ya?
