What name-calling?!? And, what disagreement?!? Betting on what I've previously said or not said is not "disagreeing"...that 's called "making ignorant & unfounded assumptions"...there's a difference. Understand?!?

I know enough about you to know that you have a comment for everyone about everything. and while I think that some of the trolls are simply moronic for following you around, i also think that you attract them by your responses and obvious "have to have the last word" mentality. Oh, and BTW, saying that Obama has done NO FAVORS in helping the democratic party get elected is an ignorant and unfounded opinion, by a woman who only has ideological disagreements with the current administration, and most likely those disagreements are based on GOP lies and misinformation as opposed to any facts that can be backed up with logic, reason, facts, or anything else constructive. YES i have problems with Obama, but i have MORE of a problem with obstructionism and a do nothing congress, which is lead and spearheaded by the republican party, who are taking their cues, not from their base, but from a radical minority in their own party, and that has hurt their overall credibility.

U missed my point. The ACA is going to be almost impossible to enforce after changing the laws for so many groups...etc. If the young people don't sign and stay signed up with ACA then it cannot make it financially. I do realize some people are happy with it......and imnfine with it being here now they they have basically dropped the employer mandate. ACA cannot last without enough people STAYING signed up.
The individual mandate was added to the final draft of the ACA by the republicans. Was a republican idea from the 90's, and it was added in order to get the republicans to even bring the ACA to a vote, then the republicans use their OWN idea against Obama saying it is unconstitutional, after the Supreme court has ruled it to be constitutional But also added to that legislation regarding to the mandate, it flat out says that it is not enforceable nor will there be any levies against anyone in any way to come after the fine in the mandate.. I dont agree with everything in the ACA, and actually i answered every question you had in relation to the ACA so i dont know how i missed your point. The ACA COULD see numbers even higher than the 7 million or so that have signed up if republican governors would expand medicare and allow it to work properly in their states. And the ACA is actually paid for already. They actually passed it WITH a way to pay for it, something that the republicans have NOT done at any time in the last 6 years on ANYTHING.

Good luck Republicans..........win or lose in the 2014 elections. Either way your party will need it. Intelligent enough for you?
The House has initiated plenty of legislative action. They have passed 420 bills (many are jobs bills) that Harry Reid has refused to act on in the Senate. Google House bills stuck in Senate.

My point is......from the get go when I replied ...both parties suck. You continue to make this an issue of parties. I don't like the ACA regardless of who had the idea....but I can accept it better without the employer mandate that was going to be very costly to full time jobs. My next point is.....regardless of what states join in the medicaid....there is already nearly half of people enrolled getting free insurance........that is a very slippery slope and it cannot make financial sense very long. And yes...they did have an idea of how to pay for it. It is assuming the young generation signs up and pays for insurance to offset the free insurance to others........that's why it is unlikely to stay around very long without a major tax increase.

Google "House bills stuck in Senate." The "do nothing Congress" as you call it, has passed 420 bills since Obama took office which are still sitting on Harry Reid's desk.

Simple questions: 1. Does that number include the 50 bills passed by the Republican-controlled House to overturn the Affordable Care Act? 2. How many of those bills passed by the Republican-controlled House contain amendments or clauses to defund the Affordable Care Act, defund the EPA, etc? In short, how many of those 420 bills that the Republican-controlled House passed and sent to the Senate are 'clean?'

Instead of you carrying water for the Democrats, Google it and see for yourself. There are several of the bills (with their titles)listed. Many are jobs bills.

with the google search, i noticed that same 420 number in articles from 4 years ago. You know why the Senate doesnt pass more of the house bills? because the rules of the senate allow for ONE person to be able to filibuster to block legislation from the majority unless one party has a super majority to overrule a filibuster. Mitch McConnell and the Republicans this session have filibustered on a TON of important legislation that would have passed the senate otherwise. Also, here is a good, non partisan website for everyone to enjoy. you can see EVERY bill that is in process or recently signed into law. Gov track dot us. very informative and legitimate information. Something that the major news outlets on both sides dont give us.

and back to "really" and the ACA....they dont have an IDEA to pay for it, they have a way to pay for it. It was included in the bill BEFORE passage and it doesnt solely rely on participation in the system. Total cost over the next decade is est.$800 billion, paid for by $500 billion in cuts to other programs, and the rest in new taxes. In other words, there were ways to pay for it discussed, agreed upon, and passed by all 3 branches, and ratified by the constitution, and enrollment and participation is not a factor considering EVERYONE will be responsible for it in some way by the addition of new taxes, something that EVERYONE says they hate, yet they keep voting in the same types, or even same legislators, that have been in office for decades. Once the population realizes that its gonna take getting money out of politics to get money back into properly ran and funded government, the changes will happen. Until then, its business as usual no matter who is the figurehead in office.

Wait a minute, do you remember what happened to the economy after the 2006 elections when dems took over house and senate, it was their obstuctionist policies along with Greenspan's lack of policing the large banks that created the recession of 2008. The clown in the white house hasn't got a clue. Why not blame him he has spent the last 5 years blaming George Bush while he doubles the national debt!

Short observation: You yourself don't care about the effect of any Republican amendments and clauses that may be detrimentall to other government programs as long as there is a 'jobs,' bill to cite. Agree? Disagree?

Fine, I concede your point. Now then let the Republicans win a majority in the House and Senate, get off their collective obstructionist asses and DO SOMETHING constructive for the good of the country. Between traditional Republicans and Tea Baggers (sic), they would find it much harder to clear the traffic jam than create one.

Yes the repubs have bee obstructionist, damn good thing, this guy in the white house thinks he is a monarch. He continues to use executive power when his approval rating is 37%. He got nothing accomplished in his first two years with a majority in both houses. Why would repubs want to accomodate him with another jobs bill when his plan is to create more minimum wage jobs and run up the deficit with his failed ideas.
