You are too stupid for words. I will not waste my time debating you, the village idiot. Clearly, you are not an Independent. You are a DEM thru and thru; with no critical thinking skills. Facts scare people like you.

You are an idiot. You sound more like a brain dead LA Democratic voter than a person worthy of any thinking persons respect. If you and yours hadn't elected the Union thugs who gave away all of our revenues our kids might stand a chance.

Facts? You know nothing of facts, but spew insults...name one GOP who is fit or able to be elected president? Just one....name one policy of the gop that deserves consideration by the nation at large....just one....it was the people like you, so gullible, so empty headed, so full of anger, that helped create the poisonous atmosphere that has truly brought the downfall that is coming to this country...your party is more important than the actual nation.....angry and hateful is no way to go through life....

I could do better that Obama. I would just listen to what the American citizens want, and try to do it. Its that simple. Just like any other job. Obama is a total failure..

I am an Independent, so your comments do not apply. If you voted for Obummer then you re the gullible one. BTW, Romney might be a good choice for the GOP, or Ron Paul.

403(b) or deferred compensation plans, which is basically the same thing, but you are correct they are not 401K.

Well, what is stopping you...go for it hot shot...just what is it Americans citizens want? From a casual observation,I would say most Americans have no idea what they want...sure, they want no immigrants...it is always like that...not going to change...they want healthcare reform but it isn't coming...what is coming is another payoff to a special interest....the people want reform but the people vote against reform....the people want freedoms but vote against those who will guarantee them.....the people want a lot but don't want to pay for anything....so, slick, what is your plan, and what is the plan the GOP has...just one...tell us...we are all ears....if it is good, you might be where Obama is....of course, you will h ave to beat the party that votes in a bloc to stop anything and everything you do, but you are a winner compared to Obama, right?

Neither Romney nor Paul is a good choice...Firstly, Romney has no basic principles and he was rejected by the GOP last time...Ron Paul has or two good ideas, but in general, is nuts...too extreme and fails to realize that this country is now 330 million in a time of great change...he is not the guy for the 21st Century....his idea of closing the Dept of Education is excellent....not much else there...

They don't listen to the people because they are too focused on their own agendas that are dictated by lobbist and unions.Then the media,for the most part,spins the issues to their liberal point of view.The GOP plan is start over with a realistic plan that favors everyone not 2700 pages of contridiction.Most of the congress haven't read the bill and probably couldn't understand it if they did.

uh, which media would that be..the entire tv spectrum is corporate owned and even by right wing standards are shifting to the right and have been for years, and the print media is losing ground. So, not sure if you are repeating the myths put out there or you are not very well informed...As for unions, I agree, they should be forced out of any government office...we have civil service protections that should be enough...Now, don't forget that most lobbies, certainly the ones spending the money are pro GOP...but will corrupt anyone with money...so you can attack liberals since that is what you are told to do, but why? Shouldn't you be attacking corruption of our system by money bribes? As for the bill you refer to, it might surprise you that most of the oppostion is from the left because like others, they too are against being forced to buy a policy from the very people who created the present mess, to begin with..They want an extension of medicare...and so do I....the right says it would cost too much...100 billion over 10 years...but, the right then goes and approves of a TWO TRILLION DOLLAR defense budget over 2 years....frankly, I would rather spend money in America, on Americans than killing foreigners who have done nothing to us, nor could they, and occupying their nations....that is just me, I guess....
