"If allowed to work it's will"?

The teabagger agenda?

That's what got us at the present state we're in.

Stupid Teabaggers.

The American people did not give them the House so they could do anything. The voters elected them simply to stop Obama from accomplishing anything. What we want is gridlock. To make sure his second term is as big a failure as his first.

Work it's will, not any particular agenda. You appear to have a comprehension problem. In fact, Boehener explicitly said in the interview that he is not interested in pushing an agenda. It's about the process.

Now, tell us what state we're in, genius, and what you think is wrong with it.

I'm wondering if you realize who has been in office for more than the past five years. I'm wondering if you have yet recognized that Obama has presented a continuous disdain for Congress, the Supreme Court, our foreign ambassadors, our border patrol agents and the American people. I'm wondering if you recognize that there is more fighting and killing going on in the Middle East today than at any time during the previous administration. I'm wondering whether you recognize that the stature of the USA has fallen dramatically during Obama's tenure.

It's the teabagger way.

Party before country, just like Limbaughtomy claimed then retracted.

McTurtle's priority.

The latest teabagger congress is worse than the last, which was the worst on record.

Teabagger B.S.

It's teabaggers and congress who has a disdain for the president, the American people and the process.

What did they just do for the 38th time?

Vote to repeal the AHCA.

Boner doesn't have an agenda?

Limbaughtomy spilled the beans years ago "I hope Obama fails".

Teabaggers keep pushing for a corporate run government, privatize ANYTHING and deregulate everything.

Unless, it involves a bedroom or a vagina.

Teabaggers have a fixation with those.

Who cares about the middle east?

Teabaggers.

Who want to invade Iran, Syria and Egypt creating more U.S.involved B.S.

The U.S. shouldn't be the middle east or the world's police force.

The teabagger congress has the worst approval rating since the last teabagger congress which also had the worst since records were kept.

Poor teabagger.

Disdain for the American people was demonstrated from the earliest days of Obama's presidency. There has never been a majority of the American people who wanted Government run health care. Now that it's law, Obama refuses to implement it.

Explain how this is the fault of Congress.

Really?

The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll found 62 PERCENT of Americans expressing SUPPORT for "having the government create a new health insurance plan to compete with private health insurance plans." Other pollsters describing the public option as "government administered" and "similar to Medicare" gauged even more positive reactions: 67 percent in a Kaiser Family Foundation poll in April and 72 percent in the most recent CBS News/New York Times poll.

So if Americans live in fear of government intrusion into health care, why does likening the public option to Medicare make reform more popular?

Americans have twice voted Obama into office with significant majorities...and the ACA isn't remotely like "government-run healthcare," that was a lie from day 1.

nor is anyone refusing to implement it...explain why we should take a liar like you seriously?

Explain how this is the fault of Congress.
When President Obama convened a town-hall meeting in Rio Rancho, N.M., last month, he wanted to talk about credit card reform. But many in the crowd had a different agenda.

"So many people go bankrupt using their credit cards to pay for health care," the first questioner said to applause. "Why have they taken single payer off the plate?"

The "single payer" activists had struck again. As Obama and congressional Democrats work to writel andmark health-care legislation, they face increasingly noisy protests from those on the left who complain that a national program like those in Europe has been excluded from the debate.

Many Republicans see the movement as evidence that Democrats are setting the country on the path to "government-run health care," as they describe it. Conservatives for Patients' Rights, an advocacy group bankrolled by ousted Columbia/HCA chief Rick Scott, began a $1.2 million ad campaign Thursday that portrays Democratic plans as a "bulldozer" aimed at eliminating private insurance companies.

A single payer healthcare system is what should have been implemented but teabaggers cried it will take all the profits away.

Their big insurance company constituents.

I don't believe that report of a poll. The numbers don't make sense.
When was it conducted and how?

"Among insured Americans, 82 percent rate their health coverage positively."
"Nearly one in four Americans, 23 percent, say they or someone in their family put off medical treatment in the last year because of the cost.(Among uninsured people, this soars to 49 percent.)". And yet, 64% of insured are satisfied with the costs.

But, even more surprising is the recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that says only 37% think Obamacare is a good idea. Do you suppose that it's possible the polls were taken at different times and under different conditions? The results are very disparate.

The Obama administration refuses to enforce the requirement that employers provide coverage for their workers or pay penalties. That is part of the law. Nobody but Obama believes you can pick and choose which parts df a law to obey. Imagine if we all had that privilege!

It's OK officer. I know I don't have car insurance, but I promise to get it next year.

"allowed to work its will" is teabagger code for "we need to take 85 more votes to repeal the ACA".
