You're the idiot. Everything he posted is a fact. Instead of just insulting him why don't you prove they aren't true

Oh that's right you can't since they are true. That's why you only attacked him.

April 5, 2012 By Steve Young

The NBC-affiliate in Fort Myers, Florida, recently discovered hundreds of
cases in Florida of illegal aliens and non-US citizens of being registered
and voting in past elections.

This expose' provides a strong case in support of voter ID laws that are
being pursued by a number of U.S. states leading up to November's elections.
The U.S. Department of Justice has recently blocked attempts by states like
South Carolina and Texas to implement these laws.

You believe wrong. Your little article has nothing to do with that.

ObamaCare has been nothing but a huge lie and disaster.

That is just your opinion, which is worth nothing. The ACA has been overwhelmingly successful and is here to stay. I cannot believe that anyone who can find topix is really that ignorantly uninformed, so I will assume you're just being a typical repugnantcan azzwipe.

So typical of you left wing morons. You can't defend your disaster president, you can't debate actual facts, you lack the intelligence for rational discussion, so you accuse anyone you don't agree with of being a lunatic, and extremist, or whatever. In reality all you are doing is admitting your own ignorance.

Glad you are happy about a disaster moving forward. Shows a real lack of caring about this country. It's sad and pathetic.

Well I guess you better go wait for your next allotment of food stamps or whatever other government handouts you get to come. My co driver is about to run out his clock which means it's time for me to take my pride in being self sufficient and do my job.

You need to get better advice because most of what you have been told is incorrect. You are absolutely eligible for the insurance provided by the ACA. You will have to pay for it based on what you do and do not earn, but you are eligible to be insured. What you have written here is ludicrous and just plain not true.
Yes you are correct in stating I am eligible for the insurance, I did say I was not eligible for Medicaid or TnCare but I didn't say I was not eligible for the insurance itself I said I am not eligible to receive help with the payment of the insurance (in the form of a tax credit) in the Obamacare Insurance because I make to little money, the insurance itself was going to be over $400 a month not a year, With a part time job, it's well do I want to have a place to live, a car an ins so I can get to work along with gas to get there, along with heating it and having running water, or do I want to be homeless and have insurance, and if I was homeless more than likely I would need the ins more because I would be freezing to death, or roasting to death as my car has no air. However since I am not in a state that has extended its Medicaid I got a letter exempting me from the fine, that is really what I was trying to stress to people if they can not pay for the Obamacare (due to finances) and their state has not extended it's Medicaid they need to apply for the Medicaid so they will be exempt to and not have to pay a fine.(They will get a Denial Letter in the mail stating this if and when they apply for the Medicaid)

This was one they recommended (the Obamacare Website) places to go to for around the Town that I live in, Online when I went to sign up, they had put names and address of places that would help, I figured I better go to someone that knew what they were doing that's why I went to a Real Place here close by, They said the only way I could get help paying for it was by means of the Tax Credit, and I could NOT get a Tax Credit unless I was making over $13,000.00 a year. I said to them I thought this was all started and put in place to help the Poor who couldn't afford it, She actually told me to just thank the Governor for not extending the Medicaid. She wasn't to happy either. Just something I have to live with
