Funny, you don't seem to mind collecting the Social Security that FDR, a Democratic President, created. And I'll bet you're counting on Medicare in a few years.

Funny how you pick and choose which of these Socialist programs are good and which are bad.

You're a phony of incredible proportions.

Homer's just another blind liberal who wants big government to have power over him rather than empowering him.
Other than that, he's fairly harmless.
So Bush's "Big Government" was good, but Obama's "Big Government" is bad??

I mean, the Patriot Act was the biggest unConstitutional threat to America in our history, yet you nitwits loved it. One day, a President will use it to take over completely, because the Patriot Act allows, even encourages it. You'd better pray it's not Obama or the next one, Hillary.

Back then you said "If you've done nothing wrong, you've nothing to worry about"

Now you say the same thing is Obama stealing your liberties.

You're insane, in the certifiable sense.

Nathan, born Nancy, Verhelst, 44, was given legal euthanasia, most likely by lethal injection, on the grounds of "unbearable psychological suffering" on Monday afternoon.

Wim Distelmans, a cancer specialist who carried out the euthanasia, is the same doctor who late last year gave lethal injections to congenitally deaf twins who were frightened they were also going blind.

"I was the girl that nobody wanted," Mr Verhelst told Het Laatste Nieuws newspaper in the hours before her death.

"While my brothers were celebrated, I got a storage room above the garage as a bedroom.'If only you had been a boy', my mother complained. I was tolerated, nothing more."

Mr Verhelst had hormone therapy in 2009, followed by a mastectomy and surgery to construct a penis in 2012. But "none of these operations worked as desired".

"I was ready to celebrate my new birth," he told the newspaper. "But when I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted with myself. My new breasts did not match my expectations and my new penis had symptoms of rejection. I do not want to be... a monster. "

The case will revive Belgium's debate over medical euthanasia as statistics show a steep year on year increase in the number of patients killed by doctors after a request to die.

Belgium recorded a record number of 1,432 cases of euthanasia in 2012, up 25 per cent from the previous year and the country is currently deciding whether to extend "mercy killing" legislation to children.

Professor Distelmans, who carried the euthanasia of Mr Verhelst, is the same doctor who last December gave lethal injections to twins Marc and Eddy Verbessem, 45.

The two men brothers were both born deaf and asked for euthanasia after finding that they might also both go blind. After having their request to die refused by their local hospital, Prof. Distelmans accepted on the grounds of 'unbearable psychological suffering'.

"The choice of Nathan Verhelst has nothing to do with fatigue of life," said Dr Distelmans. "There are other factors that meant he was in a situation with incurable, unbearable suffering. Unbearable suffering for euthanasia can be both physical and psychological. This was a case that clearly met the conditions demanded by the law. Nathan underwent counseling for six months."

Last week, figures showed that the number of Dutch people killed by medical euthanasia has more than doubled in the 10 years since legislation was changed to permit it, rising 13 per cent last year to 4,188.

Euthanasia carried out by doctors at the request of a patient is only legal in three European countries, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.

The fact that so many Americans tried to get onto the exchanges proves it is a hit with Americans.
So your side loses again.
Just like Ted Cruz admitted,'we've got to stop it before Americans get to like it'.

As Obamacare Sign Up Begins Tea Partiers Are Fighting A Battle They’ve Already Lost

Most Americans understand it is autumn in 2013, and that it has been nearly a year since voters re-elected Barack Obama to serve a second term as President. According to a poll released yesterday, by a margin of two-to-one, respondents said “the results from the 2012 presidential election represented a referendum on moving forward with the Affordable Care Act” that has been the law of the land since March 23, 2010. However, for Republicans it is still 2010 and they are fighting to defeat what they imagine is a health insurance reform bill in Congress even though the Supreme Court ruled the ACA was constitutional in 2012. To impress on Americans they are still fighting the health law, they shut down the government.

Now that it is October 1 and Americans can begin signing up to buy affordable healthcare insurance, it is unlikely that reality will sink in to Republicans in Congress that the next phase of the Affordable Care Act is underway and that their man-god, Ted Cruz, is just another deranged teabagger; albeit one Republicans admit is leading congressional Republicans. Traditionally, in both houses of Congress there are procedures for picking the leader of each party that worked for a couple of hundred years, and it is true that John Boehner was elected as Speaker of the House, but he is just a sycophant answering to Ted Cruz.

....No party likes to lose elections, or legislative battles, but Republicans are taking their losses to an extreme and causing harm to the people and the economy. In fact, stocks are already falling because Republicans threaten to repeat their shutdown debacle when the debt limit is reached in a little over two weeks. The Affordable Care Act is, in John Boehner’s words,“the law of the land,” and yet he is blindly following teabagger Ted Cruz and holding firm that “something has to be done” to eliminate the healthcare law regardless the consequences to the economy and the people. It is 2013 and the ACA has been a law for over three years and it has been a year since the voters re-elected the President and his promise to see the health law fully implemented. As the President said, one faction is refighting the results of an election, but they are not alone and it is time to put the blame squarely where it belongs; on the entire Republican Party regardless they are being led by a maniac.

Oh good, I've got you pissed off!!

Visits equal intense public interest.

It's going to take awhile to get it up and running well, your nitwit side has done everything in it's power to stop and hinder it.

Your side lost this one. Media is filled with stories of real Americans eager to get a fair deal on healthcare.

And you just can't let go of that 2 year old bone.

Can you say obsessed?? because I'm so deep inside your head, I can see all the empty filing cabinets.

There is no basis to attach a current law to raising the debt limit, which has been done 94 times since WWII.

It is blackmail, plain and simple. And you're an idiot, as usual.

As usual, you're too stupid to comprehend how dangerously these House idiots are behaving. Endangering the entire nation so they can throw a tantrum to impress nitwits like you??

This will cost them dearly, count on it.

Obamacare trade-off: Lower premium, higher deductible

WASHINGTON — You might be pleased with the low monthly premium for one of the new health insurance plans under Obama’s takeover, but the added expense of copayments and deductibles will burn a hole in your wallet.
