hundreds of thousands thrown out of work!

millions of america's children deprived of federal programs!

war vets scorned and turned away!

all of this because less than 10% of 350 million people can't or won't afford health coverage?

all of this because the rest of america will have to foot the bill for an undisclosed amount for an indeterminent period and someone's trying in vain to give us a wake-up call?

i say the messiah has turned wine into water and refused to walk on it.

as madame-x pelosi said, it's too comprehensive and complicatd to understand before it's passed; you gotta problem with that?

duh, yeah!

billions in bailout's, worst recession in decades, and this piece of crap gets passed.

who needs terrorist, we have democrats!

Have you already got health insurance, or have you visited the state's exchange yet?

If you own a car, do you have that insured?

Do you have homeowners or renter's insurance?

It had Al Gore's picture along with the cover of the UN report on Climate Change.

Wonder why?

Naa, that had Nancy Pelosi's picture. She's the frigid one with the subnormal body temperature.

You comment would indicate you are someone too dumb, shortsighted and narrow minded to understand anything beyond the end of you big crooked nose. That's what happens when you're stuck in The Blaze or listening to Faux all day and night. I know it will be an impossible task for you, but look into why the ACA came about and examine what it is trying to do.

Oh but haven't you heard the latest progressive talking points? The voting cattle are parroting it every chance they get: "Republicans are terrorists with bombs strapped to their chests, blowing up children".

This from the group that said demanding answers for the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi was "phony outrage".

The republicans walked right into this one, but even for liberals this latest demonstration of flinging themselves on the ground and bawling that their being held hostage, their children are being blown up, and it's ALLLL the Tea Party's fault is over-the-top political antics at their most ridiculous.

I'm sure we're all well-versed on the progressives' sales pitch for what it's "trying" to achieve - none of which couldn't have been addressed with corrections to the American health care system without completely dismantling it in favor of a "train wreck" (as it's own backers have called it).

We're also well-versed on what the real intent of Obama's reconciliation-passed progressive wet dream: A Single-Payer System, something completely un-American in conception and practice.

If you haven't already, get your sorry a$s signed up soon O-no-balls. The ACA is meant for someone like you. Someone who doesn't have the where-with-all to have a health insurance policy from an employer (you don't work, maybe never have)and someone too dumb to realize that having health insurance (either one they pay for themselves or one provided by an employer) just might be a smart thing to have these days.

One thing I've noticed about you O-no-balls (actually there are quite a few other things about you I've noticed as well -- none of them positive or flattering) but you 'really' do must love that term "Parroting" as you use it often. Every other comment you make in fact has that word or a derivative of it in it. Therefore, I see you often sitting, swing from a perch, a multi-colored bird, with a big beak, yipping and yapping with reckless abandon anything and everything you see or hear from right wing lunatic extremists, who are just like yourself. Parroting, yes, Parroting. Swinging on your perch imitating your right wing extremist lunatic handlers.

Having a car is optional. Having a body is not. People are not required to purchase homeowners or renter's insurance by the government. Apparently logic is not your strong suit, either, tacobob.

That's not the worst of it. I read this as the year 1775 or 1860, whatever is more applicable.

Hahah. So you therefore you must prefer the govt. REQUIRE homeowners and renters purchase insurance? your reasoning, Logic being if its required for one, why not all? and if the govt. doesn't require insurance on everything, then why are the demanding everyone has health insurance? lol You are troubled aren't you? Did anyone call you Simpleton when your were a lad? You are worse than insane.

The fact of the matter, is that there are laws that require you to insure a home if it has a mortgage loan against it. It protect the bank from losing money if your house burns down, or gets blown away by a tornado or hurricane.

The question here is why shouldn't there be a law against people scamming the medical system in this country by expecting medical care without the means to pay for it.

I would be all in favor of making health insurance optional, so long as doctors and hospitals have the same rights that bank have in showing you the exit.

You patriots call people on welfare or food stamps shiftless bums who refuse to take responsibility for their own lives. In the very next breath, you expect everyone else to foot the bill for your medical care because you don't want to take responsibility for it.

You may not find any hypocrisy in that, but not me......

I'm not a patriot like you!

The only hypocrite is you Bob since you whine and cry like a baby about people using the emergency rooms without paying for them but have no issue with your Senator, Representative and President having cadillac plans for healthcare that you pay for. And apparently, you and the pipester could care less that businesses, unions, and the aforementioned "representatives" have received exemptions from the ACA. Talk about hypocrisy at its finest!

So you didn't answer the question......

Do you have health insurance, or are you one of those patriots that expects everyone else to pay for your healthcare through higher costs that doctors and hospital have to pass along to the rest of us?

Assuming by your line "You patriots call people on welfare or food stamps shiftless bums who refuse to take responsibility for their own lives. In the very next breath, you expect everyone else to foot the bill for your medical care because you don't want to take responsibility for it" you are believe these to be the same folks. I disagree. It is the right that "calls people on welfare or food stamps shiftless bums who refuse to take responsibility for their own lives" but it is the left that "expects everyone else to foot the bill for someone's medical care because they don't want to take responsibility for it." That is what the ACA is all about. Triathalete's and 600 lb beached whales pay the same under the ACA. 60 year old slow poke drivers and 19 year old NASCAR wannabe's pay the same under the ACA.

If you are going to participate at least try to keep up with the basics like who is on the right and who is on the left.

Aimless rambling without proven facts from a trusted website doesn't mean squat......

Your contention that everyone will pay the same rates, flies in the face of other blubbering conservatives that say that the ACA is unfair because smokers and fat people will pay more.

Can't you people get your story straight?
