Absolutely right, they get this from their constant viewing of the corrupt mainstream media stations.

It is also amazing how they change history, it is the democrats that were the proslavery party,

and the KKK was felt by many to be the terrorist arm of the democratic party.

Don't expect them to admit it though. And certainly the corrupt mainstream media will not admit it either.

How can you make such a comment when he has incurred more debt than any other president just in his first four years, he has divided our country more than any other president, he ignores Benghazi making up a story about why it happened, wants to give illegal immigrants amnesty and have us take care of them, lied to us about Obamacare saying that you can keep your insurance when in fact many people are losing their insurance....and these are just a few things. We know there are many other problems that have occurred since he was elected.

Neither party has anybody even close to beating her. As it sits right now, the most viable candidates for nomination include Rand Paul, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz & Marco Rubio. And not one of them have the type of firepower to bring down Hilary.
i have a feeling that chris christie will switch party lines and run as hillary's veep...christie isn't ready to be president yet, but 8 years with veep experience, probably....

christie knows he will go no where in the republican party, people won't vote republican because of all the damage they caused...his friendship with obama will help him blend into the dem party...

Prior to the Civil Rights Act and the Voter's Right Act you were pretty much right. Southern Democrats hated it when President Johnson signed both into law. Remember Alabama Governor George Wallace and the Southern Democrats ranting and raving secretion now and forever? South was solid racist born again religious White Democrats and the Blacks that could vote voted Republican.

President Johnson said that he had likely lost the south for fellow Democrats for the next 50 years. Today take a look as I think there is only one southern Democrat in Congress. But boy is there a bunch of racist born again religious white Republicans.

What used to be the Southern Democrats departed the Democrat party and now are Republicans due to President Johnson pushing through those two acts for the southern blacks. The southern blacks today are voting Democrats "if the White Southern Racist Republicans can't figure out a way to keep them from voting.

I as a Republican watched it all happen.

Interesting thought.

Chris Christie right now is the only "sane" Republican on the national stage. There might be another Republican governor out there that is not nuts but so far hasn't gotten any attention.

There is one Republican Senator that don't make much noise and pretty much follows the Republican voting line and passes most of the Republican litmus tests that might attack some national attention "if" he runs for President.

John Thune from South Dakota.

He is a "nodding head" behind McConnell that generally don't get real radical when standing behind a mike. He would pass the muster with the old line Republican guard that really don't like the crazy Tea Party boys & girls.

A memo reportedly went out Monday from the corporate offices of David’s Bridal to store managers informing them that all employees have been moved from full-time to part-time as a result of Obamacare.

The memo’s existence, first reported by the Weasel Zippers blog, was confirmed to The Daily Caller by 5 David’s Bridal employees, all reached at separate locations by phone.

Store managers have been specifically forbidden from discussing the contents of the memo, referring questions about the memo to the David’s Bridal corporate office.

That office did not to immediately responds multiple requests for comment.

A woman on Twitter named “Joanie B.” tweeted Monday afternoon that the move affected her daughter, a David’s Bridal employee.

David’s Bridal employs more than 2500 people at over 300 stores in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, according to the company’s website.

UPDATE: A source close to the situation confirmed to The Daily Caller that David’s Bridal salespeople across the country today had their work hours slashed to 30 hours per week and their health insurance eliminated. These terms were non-negotiable, with employees told to either accept the new terms or to quit immediately.

David’s Bridal employees are almost exclusively female, the WAR ON WOMAN by the (D) continue. Look for David's Bridal to hire 2,500 new PART TIME employees to keep its stores staffed. Welcome to PART TIME America ladies. How's that female vote for Obama working out for ya now?

She obviously has a problem with holding onto a job, she became the senator of NY UGH, and quit, then she was taken by the Obama administration to be Secretary of State and quit that, so should she become President double UGH, is she going to be available to take that proverbial 3 am phone call, I say an emphatic NO. If elected we can all kiss this country goodbye, and hope to teach this country a lesson they have obviously forgotten is, to wake them the hell back up maybe DC should be nuked off the map, that may do it.

Election day, and of course on the way to work I see that someone had pasted "supports Obamacare" on the conservative party candidates signs.

Typical democrats, they ram through horrendous unpopular legislation and then they lie to try to pin it on the other side.

Just like Obama and the democrats lieing about keeping your insurance plan, or keeping your doctor,

and the corrupt mainstream media types like Candy Crowley of CNN misleading the public to get their candidate elected,

but then to make it worse they actually have the gall to attack TEA party people, who are basically older people trying to protect our country from the disaster the democrats are pushing,

they villainize the TEA party people, they lie about them, and they call them liars.

Frankly I equate the liberal and democratic party people with the devil himself. They have no morals, no scruples, no care about right vs. wrong.

Just unbelievable,

the democratic party way, lie and deceive.

Now Obama denies saying that you can keep your health insurance plan, despite saying it on videotape multiple times.

http://dailycaller.com/2013/11/05/obama-denie...

I have no doubt that the corrupt main stream media will echo this, or try to say that he misspoke, when the bottom line is he lied, time after time.

If the ACA was a single payer system or had a public option then it could be called “socialism” but the problem is that it does not contain a “socialistic” program. The “mandate” and the “exchanges” are the purest form of Capitalism and the Free Market System. It is a place where private individuals can meet with private insurance companies to buy and sell goods and services. Capitalism and the free market at work, there is NO government “Obama Care” government policy available to purchase on the exchanges.
Much of what is in the ACA is putting the dampers down on insurances companies. For years they got away with selling junk healthcare insurance and were dropping people who got sick. Much of that is now changed. They were raking a profit of 30% to hold the money, now they have to get by with 20% and return 80% back in claim payments. Drug companies were also clamped down on and doctors are going to see some changes also.
Conservatives speak of being against “Wealth Distribution”, then the ACA should be something that they should support. In the past people could use the emergency room or walk away from their healthcare costs and those costs were passed on by the Doctors and hospitals in cost increase to those who could pay either in cash or had insurance. The ACA attempts to make people responsible for their own healthcare costs rather than at some point passing those costs on. Stopping them from doing that is stopping “Wealth Redistribution” by making them responsible for their own bills and not using my wealth to pay for their healthcare costs by passing their unpaid bills on to me.
No one is required to purchase their healthcare insurance off the exchanges. The only real reason is to see if one’s income and number of dependents qualifies them for a subsidy. Other than that they can go deal directly with United Healthcare.

It says, Cheyenne, WY Regional Medical Center wrote off $23 million of net revenue in uncompensated care. That includes charity care and bad debts.

When they say “wrote off” it means those costs were passed on to someone else who had insurance or paid cash.

Another place in the article it says “We write off $50 million to $60 million. That is huge and about 9 percent of our budget last year,”.
I’m all for finding a way for people to be responsible for their own healthcare costs somehow – someway.
Seems like a pretty good reason to find a way for people to be responsible for their health care costs if they can be. I would have rather seen a Single Payer System of some sort but what we got was basically a Republican style mandate that at least makes an attempt to make people responsible.

It would seem that hospitals and Doctors who are the first to get stuck by those who don’t pay would like the idea of people having insurance even if it is mandated (Obamacare) and is not a junk policy.

Add to that the rising cost of healthcare. I had a test done last Friday . The bill shows a $55.00 charge for taking my pulse and blood oxygen level. It is done by using a small device you clip on the end of your finger. It sends a laser beam into your finger and then can detect your Oxygen and pulse rate. Me and my insurance company will pay that bill. I cannot see the justification for charging $55 to detect my pulse rate and blood oxygen. It is charges like this that drive up healthcare and insurance costs. There is no regulation on how much they can charge for these medical items. There is no negotiation allowed to reduce those costs. I don’t mind the Dr.s and nurses making a living. I’m all for it. What I am against is the owners of the HMO’s making bonuses that total a billion dollars over a 3 year period. It is the greed that drives up these costs. That is why I am in favor of the Affordable Care Act. It regulates what insurance companies have to pay out and what they are required to cover. Having a public option or single payer is what we now need. It is either that or more regulation on the healthcare and insurance industry. Having Medicare for all would insure these hospitals and healthcare professionals are paid. It would also take the burden of insurance off of the backs of employers. The only way everyone can enjoy affordable healthcare is to spread the cost over the population. We need single payer heath care for all. Everyone would benefit. It is the right thing to do.
Regarding the write offs of the hospital. The hospital is quick to tell you about how much they wrote off but they don’t tell you how much they received in subsidies and tax cuts. They are making money, big money. The Affordable care Act should greatly reduce their write offs.

Great points!!! There is nothing more "free market" than forcing people to buy something! You're really on top of this one!

Also, with regard to the "junk healthcare insurance" the messiah has eliminated... you nailed it again! Did you know that there were millions of single men that had a policy that didn't include maternity care??? What if those men got pregnant??? Thankfully, their policies have been abolished and they now have to pay for maternity care insurance!!!

This is going great!
