<quoted text>It is so amusing how these losers (who couldn’t win an election against President Obama) are all worked up over polls and a biggest lie: Whoppers of 2013 [and mind you these are the same people displaying disingenuous outrage who cheered GW Bush’s Mission Accomplished banner after he lied this nation into Iraq that killed hundreds of thousands](women and children included).
They can’t let it go… THEY LOST… and I love the fact that President Obama is implementing OBAMACARE as millions sign up glitch free, LOL.

But if they don’t like it… they still have to keep it… President Obama that is… LOL!
I think you need to start taking your meds again. You are delusional. Even Obama doesn't call it Obamacare anymore. Every Democrat that is up for reelection is distancing themselves from it. It has been an utter failure. More people will be without healthcare on Jan 1 2014 than Jan 1 2013. Affordable care act is anything but affordable. More people will be paying the fines not to be on it then will sign up for it. It's like anything that has to do with math and simple numbers the Dems try to implement. They have all of these feel good ideas but no way to pay for it.

Gingrich goes too far to say Obama has put more on the rolls than other presidents. We asked the U.S. Department of Agricultures Food and Nutrition service for month-by-month figures going back to January 2001. And they show that under President George W. Bush the number of recipients rose by nearly 14.7 million. Nothing before comes close to that.

And under Obama, the increase so far has been 14.2 million. To be exact, the program has so far grown by 444,574 fewer recipients during Obamas time in office than during Bushs.

LOL

Is it? Obama has still added fewer people than Bush did. The year count doesn't matter until you get to the total. 14.7 million bush to 14.2 million for Obama. BINGO!

And the biggest amount of Obama's came right after Bush left office

Of the top ten states using housing,medicaid, and foodstamps given by federal/state programs 7 are in the South-not to mention teen pregnancy and high school dropouts-pretty scary

Pathetic mindless and meaningless copy & pasted drooling is all that you have to offer. How does it feel being without substance, depth or weight? Pretty lonely, eh communist-demonrat-LIEberal?

Yes, you (and your many aliases) now have close to 250,000 completely off topic copy and pastes.

But Topix insists you have the right to post dozens of them every day, none any closer to being closer to topic than the next.

Do you look at statistics or know anything about helathcare? Crawl out from under your rock. 7 million people were supposed to be signed up by Jan 1st. There are less than. 300,000 so far I would call that a complete failure. Have you not heard the problems with the website and the company hired by Obama to build the site. The no bid open contract given to that company. Complete failure and waste of money to pad the pockets of Michelle's friends.

It's simple math even the helathcare bill itself says many will lose coverage when implemented. Seriously what planet have you been living on. Even Dems have said it's been a failure so far.

Simple look at the numbers. Anyone that can do 5th grade math can figure out if you have more people using a service than before it will cost more money to run. Where is that money coming from the young healthy paying more for the old and sick. Those with jobs paying for those without. Just a form of redistributing wealth. It will fail just like anything else the government runs. The postal service has been a drain on taxpayers for years. Clearly UPS and FEDEX have figured out how to make money delivering things. Private sector always beats government run in quality of service and economics.

I have seen speeches where he said Obamacare. Look it up. He only backed off since it's failure.
