Utter and complete (as well as unsourced) garbage. Obamacare is designed to PROVIDE coverage, not take it away. If certain irresponsible corporations deny hours/healthcare to workers, they will have the opportunity to purchase it at a heavily-reduced price through state exchanges.
You really don't have any idea how it works, do you el Contrario?:)
Liberals, lie even when they don't have to........

FactCheck.org called out Senator Harry Reid for being doubly wrong in his claim that Congress has already cut $2.6 trillion from projected future deficits by reducing non-defense programs alone.

The site explained that not only did the legislation he referred to applied to both security and non-security spending, but that a considerable part of the deficit reduction came from tax increases and not spending cuts.

The worst part? The senator made the same erroneous statement twice. Reid made the affirmations on ABC's "This Week" on Feb. 3rd, were he also added that further deficit reduction should include more tax increases and cuts in military spending.

You protest too much, Nancy:

"Some studies have shown that people who are homophobic are more likely to have repressed homosexual desires"

The first step in recovery is admitting you have a problem.

I've repeatedly attacked both Bush AND Obama for drone strikes, asshat, so take that argument and shove it where the sun don't shine.

Your side lapped this up when Bush was doing it, but now hate Obama for the same actions. You're utter and complete hypocrites.

It's also funny that someone asking another poster to be "coherent" himself misspells 'tweedle dee and tweedle dum' so badly. Were you raised by wolves?:)

Professor Fartsack, I think asshat is more applicable to you amoral, leftist/communists. Whatever, your asinine, extremely deluded comments will not go unanswered. It is YOU who is the utter and complete hypocrite as bad as anyone on all of topix. Man I'm glad I'm not you and have to live in your nightmare of a brain.
