Man, I can't believe that you Republicans let Bush get away with giving guns to Mexican drug lords. I am sure that when he started the Fast and Furious program that he was trying to undermine the NRA (i.e. Jesus' Mafia).

Why is it when we find people doing something wrong we justify that it is ok because somebody else did it too. When do we draw the line and say from this day forward we will do it right.

How dare you jerry? The Republicans would never create a problem and then blame someone else for it. Now, would they?

I liked it in Mass, but I am now against it, of course I may change my mind. I will have to wait until the Koch brothers decide what they really want me to say. Us Repugs have to be against it, it will help out the common man and take money and power away from our rich buddies.

There is no penalty for not paying the mandate. The IRS cannot hold it against you and can't make you pay it. You poor bstrds can't believe what you hear on Fox.

Here is a secret about rich people: We wouldn't have noticed a 3.5% tax increase. That is not only because there isn't a material difference between having $1 million and $965,000, which is obvious, but also because most of us don't actually know how much money we are going to make in a given year. Most income at that level is the result of profits rather than salary, whether it comes in the form of bonuses, stock options, partnership distributions, dividends or capital gains.

"I was not amazed but disgusted when John Boehner and his crew tried to justify the extremity of their position by rebranding the wealthy as "job creators." While true in a very basic sense, it obscures the fact that jobs are a cost that is voluntarily incurred only as a result of demand. Hiring has no correlation at all to profits or to income - none. Let me keep more of my money without increasing customer demand and I will do just that - keep it. Perhaps I will spend a little more of it, though probably not, but even if I do it won't help the economy very much.

Here is another secret of the well-to-do: we don't really buy much more stuff than everyone else. It may be more expensive stuff, sure, but I don't buy cars, or appliances, or furniture, or anything else more frequently than the average consumer. The things I do spend more money on are services such as travel, entertainment, restaurants and landscaping, none of which generate well-paying middle class jobs. There, in a nutshell, is the sad explanation of what has happened to the American economy over the last 25 years of "trickle down" economics."

"There is no question that the increasing income inequality in our society is a bad thing, in the short-term and the long-term, for both workers and for business. It is bad in every way and for everyone, with the sole exception of Wall Street itself."

"My family is from one of the poorest counties in the country, in rural Appalachia. My grandfather was a coal miner who left school after 5th grade to help support his impoverished family. My grandmother wasn't allowed to attend high school because according to her parents women didn't need an education. I never knew my father. My mother and I subsisted on food stamps for several years. I got my first job at 13, working as a bus boy for $2 an hour, and I have never been unemployed in the 37 years since. I worked my way through college, which I paid for myself. When I started my career I worked 60+ hour weeks every week for nearly 15 years before that effort began to pay off. I employ nearly 20 people, I have no debts, and I have no doubt that I have earned every penny I have."

"And yet, I am living proof of Elizabeth Warren's maxim that no one gets rich on their own. If not for the UMWA helping to secure a living wage for my grandfather, I would probably have had to leave school to help support my family, as he had done. "I understand too that but for food stamps, I would have gone hungry as a child, that but for public subsidies and federally guaranteed loans I could never have afforded college. I know that without the internet and airports, both of which were developed with federal taxes, I could not earn an income even close to what I make today.

That all seems so obvious to me that I don't understand how anyone could question it, and those are just a few of the many reasons I am happy to pay my fair share of taxes, whatever that share maybe. Paying a lot of taxes just means you make a lot of money, and it is hard, frankly, to complain about that."

"Many of the [Tea Party] crowd seem quite proud of their Christian faith. I am not religious myself, but I am reasonably certain that Jesus would not respond to the poor and unemployed with shouts of "Get a job!""

Like I said I OWN you fools, and as long as you think like the above idiot, I will continue to OWN you! I don't have to be concerned with the constitution or the laws of this country. I am a socialist, and you will be too, sooner than you think.

They should think of how the bill could possibly help the uninsured/underinsured,not political hog wash!If the damned bill that was passed by the Supreme Court isn't worth the paper it's written on..the direction Medicare/Medicaid seems to be heading,what does it matter then? At least the Obama Care plan is better than genocide!

All depends on who you are and what you want. It's simple. Boucher represents the people, Griffith represents the executives. It seems that there's more executives than miners at present.

Peel back the layers,patriots! IT IS NOT ABOUT HEALTHCARE!!! You got that? Its about controlling us..as a people... and its working! By making it a law that forces you to buy health insurance, it sets a precedent that the government can and will force you to do anything else they want you to do. Last week, the supreme court took most of the freedoms that millions have died for, away from the future generations. Remember the story about the frog in the pan of water? Slowly the heat was turned up until he was completely cooked!! America if you don't do the right thing in November....YOU ARE COOKED AND DONE!! WWII veterans and all veterans may you rest in peace?
