Its the same with Healthcare all this BS paranoia with Obama Health coverage is just fear of the unknown, simple as that.
It's not the unknown that's causing Obama and his lackeys, the House and the Senate to avoid the ACA. They're treating the ACA like the plague because they know the truth.

Would you?
We both voted for Romney, didn't we? And he was a Mormon. Not exactly a Protestant or a Catholic.
Why is it only Republicans are asked about their religious affiliation anyway? Democrats are never asked.
I would hope conservative candidates just say it's a private matter and ask which Democratic candidates have publicly announced their religious affiliation - just for the record.
Why do you even care that Romney was a Mormon?

Why can't you understand that I just said anti-abortion legislation should not be part of the discussion until AFTER Republicans win back the Senate and the Presidency and keep the House?
What difference will it make then if a discussion is started?
Did you vote for Romney or not?
because after winning important issues should be addressed, not frivolous stuff that will be shot down in the courts...

The ACA was modelled on Mitt Romney's health care act that which he signed into law in Massachusetts. Forget the dramatics, the web site is a small cog in the wheel. It's the principle of what it is designed to do. If you want to blame someone blame Mitt!
The principle (aka the lie) behind the ACA was to make available affordable health insurance coverage to EVERYONE.

That will NOT happen. What WILL happen is exactly what the socialist progressives wanted from the get go - government control of the health insurance industry.

That's why Obama needed to LIE, needed to DECEIVE the American people to pass his signature piece of socialist legislation.

Wonder what his plans are for the roughly 3 million Americans who work in the health insurance industry that will suddenly be unemployed? Does he even give a damn? Doubt it.

Yeah we are as dumb as two house bricks 7 5/8 inch X 3 5/8 inch US or anywhere else that can't be bothered with BS 230mm × 110mm
Just like Healthcare with conservatives if its a simple idea that works then it can't be any good.
bricks are hardly a good example to demonstrate precision...

even those nominally 7.625 inches by 3.625 inches...

Why don't we just blame someone who had nothing to do with designing the ACA website, or the ACA Healthcare law. Makes perfect sense...if your a moronic weasel.
ACA is OBAMACARE, got that junior?
Stop trying to pass the blame to someone else. You're not going to say it's Bush's fault are you?
OBAMA LIED to the American people NOT Mitt Romney.
Obama should receive all the credit for ObamaKKKare...

And the growing number on your side of the fence who think abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy doesn't damage your party's politics?
Even killing born alive babies?
I'll take the fools on my side any day.
Actually Carol, we don't. We certainly don't condone killing babies born alive. I was as happy as anyone when Dr Gosnell was convicted. On our side we want to make abortion less of an option by providing contraception, comprehensive sex education and strengthening to social safety net which are all things that prevent unwanted pregnancies. If those like you had their way and simply banned abortions, there would be more Dr Gosnells out there and women would die. You're also a hypocrite Carol because once these children are born you don't really give a damn.

Sandy Davis sure has her work cut out for her. Here amongst the ravages of another fiasco of leadership that has led the state into the quagmire of majestic delusions.
Supported by republicans ambitions to weaken education . Thus the constituents will not be able to fathom the myth from the lie. A simple Taliban/Christian tactic.
Bodily to go forth and proclaim the superiority of chauvinism to their women folk. Subjugating them to second or lower class citizens. Texan womenfolk, as Islamic womenfolk, have been given a challenge which the chauvinist knows that his womenfolk lack the education to comprehend their status.
Forced breeding is nothing new. It has been used thousands of times by dictators to furnish and embellish his herd. All with the sanctimonious rebel rousing messiah preachers blessings.
Such are the ways of the republican lone star terrorist.

Ted Cruz and his Texas failure as his example of what he wants for you..

Significant Finical Inequality in our USA has progressed under republican austerity policies since the early 1970’s. Highest acceleration to finical inequality has been addressed to the USA within the civilized developed nations.
Here in the USA in 2009 Texas rank the highest for finical inequality as Main was the lowest in accelerating inequality.
2011 CBO report illuminates that the top 1% increased their incomes by 275% after taxes over a period of 1979 to 2007. Compare this to a 60% in the middle class with gains of less than 40% to their incomes.
2012 exposes the 1% as having the same gap discrepancy to the 99% as it had in the 1920’s. Exhibiting a 20% increase to the 1% as the 99% suffered at a mere 1% gain.
Robert J. Shiller won the noble prize for economics,{2013} states his findings indicate that this increasing finical inequality within the USA is “The most important problem that we are facing now today”.
Presently populace is far more educated and interconnected than in the 1920’s. An enlighten populace recognizes the patterns of austerity’s restrictions to finical distributions and limited consumers , demands failure of the economics of that institution.
1929 and 2008 let loose the finical institutions to ravage the lower 99%. Profits and further hording of the fuel from the middle class dynamos for wealth flow and consumption. Final outcome were the “Great Depression/Recession” in our nations history.
Observing Texas, with its extreme admiration for austerity polices, it becomes easily recognized their impending collapse. Reluctance and direct obstruction for the 1% to adhere to their laborer’s productivity distributions, in ratios that continues to fuel its middle class dynamos, will simply implode their debt upon themselves.

Thanks for the info but again not one republican voted for this law and ACA has been altered, delayed and tweaked by Obama so many times who in the heck really knows what was passed as law is the same law or a mutant, since no one in Congress read the law.

Significant 'finial' inequality?

LMAO

The real story:

Bad policies get bad results, and we have had bad policies and failure to understand the economy since 2009. 5 years and our statistics are startling bad. Why?

Every demographic statistic has suffered marked decrease in viability, with Blacks, elderly and the young getting hit the hardest in the jobs market. Poverty has sky rocketed under the policies of this administration. Women have less participation in the workforce in 35 years not the kind of records anyone can be proud of...

Only one group escaped and actually thrived to new records of gains. Do you know which group are making a 'killing'?

THE WEALTHY 1%.

With the 85 billion dollars put into Wall Street each and every month the wealthy are benefiting from the artificial market that this administration policies have put in place. The truly wealthy 1% have prospered in the last 5 years.

So which policies and which party is truly the party of rich?
