On Obamacare, the Republican party has bet big on failure for four years. Now the results are in. And they lost. Big time.
As I noted recently, GOP policy analysts are pretty clear now that Obamacare isn't collapsing, hopes of the politicals notwithstanding. And strategists have started to hint that flat opposition - repeal with no alternative that provides something like the same range of benefits - may no longer be viable from a political standpoint.

Of course, in the Obamacare gotterdammerung bubble, Obamacare is on its last legs and President Obama will soon resign and ask the country for mercy as he's hustled off by federal marshals to stand trial for Obamacare and socialism. Back on planet earth though reality-based opponents see the writing on the wall.

Indeed, the new data goes beyond simply saying that Obamacare is stable or is not headed toward a death spiral. It's better than that. It's working as expected. The rate of uninsured Americans is going down substantially - especially in states that didn't try to sabotage the rollout.

They bet on failure. And they lost the bet.

As long as there are uneducated extremists like you spouting outright lies as well as your special brand of hatred and bigotry the Democrats will continue winning elections.

... as the CURRENT batch?? Well, okay, I can concede to that. However, the current batch was established long, long ago.... but, that's stating the obvious.

Carry on :)

Never has there been an administration so deceitful, so dishonest, so corrupt, or so incompetent as the pathetic Obama administration.

And you have no facts, reweener. Never have, never will. Keep shoving your head up the lefty's keesters, so you never see the light of day. Lefty's would light their hair on fire before admitting the Obama experiment has been a complete failure. It's fun watching all of you go down in flames.

You mean, like all of the democrats (and republicans) who voted to invade Iraq, for no good reason? No WMD's, no direct attack on our people, no nothing except the fear of being labeled unpartiotic? The entire congress is made up of a bunch of career moochers who are only concerned with their own affairs, their cozy pensions and lifetime heath care, their cushy jobs both before and after their terms, their book deals, their mistresses, and on and on and on. The really sad part is that people actually think their devotion to their party of choice is admirable.

You know, I never tire of sending you this little reminder because your reaction always indicates that it stings, badly, everytime.

Obama has supported, continued or expanded almost every bad policy put in place by his predecessor.(hence the G.W. Obama nickname). This includes, but is not limited to, corporate bailouts, banking industry bailouts, crony capitalism, Guantanamo, Afghanistan, supplying weapons to known terrorists (Syrian rebels), extending and expanding the so called Patriot Act, systematic encroachment on Constitutional rights including the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th amendments as evidenced by the expansion of the patriot act and the recent revelations regarding NSA snooping on American citizens phone, email, and internet use records. Let us not for get his efforts to grant amnesty to well over 25 million illegal aliens.
There has been little, if any, change from the previous administration.

It's sad how people like you can justify their idols actions while they villified the one who put them in motion in the first place. G.W.Obama has not even tried to rescind anything his predecessor put in place. But since it's Obama, now it's all ok? You are such a hypocrite.
And please tell me, precisely who are we at war with? Was there a formal declaration I missed or are you just defending your masters illegal actions again, hypocrite.
People like you are the reason this country is going down the tubes. People who believe with blind stupid faith that their chosen candidate and/or party will save the day.
In fact, I accuse you of committing false idolatry. Enjoy your eternity with the dark one.
