Gee thanks you gullible morons.
Nearly one in 10 employers to drop health coverage

Defiant1 = defiantly a Moonie

ObamaCare = RomneyCare = ObamneyCare which Defiant1 will support

If more people go to the exchanges which are, of course, MARKETPLACES FOR CAPITALIST COMPETITION FOR CUSTOMERS, we will get more transparency, efficiency and choices if the marketplace for health insurance actually exists.

The EXCHANGES are similar to the stock markets or commodity markets in that government regulations create an infrastructure where companies ply their trade. If they are unable to do so in an efficient, effective manner then we can do what other industrialized countries do have a nationalized healthcare system either fully public or partially public.

What an idea, a workable, efficient, effective health care system that covers all human beings without bankrupting families. Horrors

Colorado Springs, very rightwing yelled FIRE! HELP! to the federal government.

There are NO libertarians in disaster areas.

What Defiant1 and his idiotic ilk want is to pay nothing and have the rest of us pay everything. They are the very definition of leeches.

They want to keep 100% of their paycheck and, yet, like their Messiahs Ayn Rand and Ron Paul they will demand Social Security and Medicare.

Over 12,000 comments on this thread. I guess I will add to it. I lost 80% of my savings because of Barney "the liberal moron"Frank. We just retired just before the housing market crashed and caused the meltdown. It was liberal bullshit trying to give every liberal dipshit a house who couldn't' pay for it. Now after hard all my life and taking nothing from the gov., I'm broke. Thank you liberal retards. Don't count on me or the vast majority of Americans to vote for Obummer. Don't throw the polls at me-we are.
messing with the polls. Just like you stupid libs messed with our money.
LIAR.

The housing market was a bubble you liar. The housing market bubble then burst you liar.

As with all bubbles the values are not real you liar. You are just another example of the 100% of the Republiscum Party that are liars.

It is no surprise that pathological liar Bishoprick Romney is your candidate. His entire campaign is built on lies about Obama. He lies about Bain, he lies about Massachusetts, he lies about his record, he lies about everything.

Republiscum = Liars. The party of liars nominating a liar.

And wouldn't we all like to have a retirement plan like they have! No SS for them, no siree Bob! No Medicare to worry about either! No skin off their teeth when they vote and make those decisions about SS and Medicare cuts and funding...If it's good enough for the average every day Joe Blow, it should be good enough for the ones we send to Washington to represent us! That is the first thing that needs to be changed, and it should have happened YEARS ago!!!! Keep them WORKING in Washington and stop spending all their time campaigning and raising money for their NEXT election...TERM LIMITS is the only stinking way to clean up the mess we have...Kick the bums out....

Yep, anyone who doesn't support your very own Liar-In-Chief and your left wing propaganda is a liar, according to you.

All anyone has to do is a little research on their own. You DNC turds DO
own the housing market crash. Too bad.

Now be a good little chimp and go eat your government provided banana.
I will even provide a little entertainment for you, while you eat. Don't worry, I won't tax your three little brain cells with reading material, but the video is short.

All Obamacare did was shift the burden down the road with direct Federal taxes (your example)and raised local taxes when states have to fund the Obamacare mandates and the federal "seed money" ends. Why were some states representative's votes bought (Nebraska comes to mind) by providing federal funds to cover cost while other states were not. Stinks from the head up.
Great shell game play by DC. Let's get out of our promisses to folks by shifting the finacial burden to them through their states so we do not take the blame. The Feds cannot even run Medicare, Medicade and the VA medical right(alot of fraud and problems) and now they will run it all. Medical care in another country is looking better all the time.
Medical devices also get taxes (joint replacements for example). Does anyone really beliveve that cost will not be passed on.
Problem - Health cost is too high
DC fix - Make the states pay for it instead of us.
Why this fix - The healthcare industry and insurance industry want to not just maintain their very high profits. They want millions more insured (regardless of who pays that bill) to make even more moeny. Fairly sure ACA was written by health industry and insurance lobbiest to protect and expand their interest and handed to the congress. After all Nancy P said "now that we have passed it we need to read it".
You are absolutely correct. This ACA is nothing more than a money grab by the so-called health care industry which includes huge multinational
pharmaceutical companies.

Here is one fine example of who is buying our Congress crap sacks. I didn't realize that a sack of crap has gotten so expensive to buy
until I realized that many of the 535 crap sacks were going to receive millions to cram this worthless ACA garbage down our throats.

Get you facts straight before you begin with the "talking points"! Zzzzzz.....
Again, the illegal and migrant populations pull down our states stats. Illegals don't have "free health care".
And I ask again, if Texas is such a hell hole, then why are so many people moving here from around the country?

Too bad about your friend. The poor economy, job losses and predatory government makes for a very sour atmosphere. Just the kind of
atmosphere that irrational bottom feeders like SUXboy wants and
our criminals in government want also. It helps their goal of
keeping the population divided.

My advice to everyone is to keep preparing for the worst while hoping for the best.

Kicking the bums out is a great idea. Like you, I am tired of supporting an oligarchy that's very thinly disguised as a democratic government.

I have a great idea about the illegals. Lets use the worthless TSA to guard the border from now on. They haven't caught one single terrorist
in all of their years of harassing U.S. citizens and they can even
take their naked picture scanners with them.

It will keep the TSA busy groping and fondling someone besides airline passengers and it may cause some of the illegals to go back home.

There, killing two birds with one stone.

My son just got back from spending 2 weeks in Laredo with his job. He said everything we hear about how bad it is on the border, multiply it by 100%...He never crossed the border into Mexico, never came close to it...And said it was a scary place to be...His company had a meeting to go over all of the safety precautions before he could even go out and work...Never be alone in the company truck, ALWAYS have at least 2 people in a vehicle at all times, NEVER work after dark, they had armed guards at the work sites...People this is TEXAS we are talking about...THE UNITED STATES...!!! I asked where he was staying, if his company had him staying in the good part of town...He replied there isn't a good part of town...He was in an Embassy Suites right off of the Interstate and it was not a safe place to be..
We need a new Governor in the State House...Someone who is serious about closing the border and if that means putting the National Guard and Tanks on the Rio Grande, then that is what needs to be done....
