Obama's suggestion is that if you don't like Florida then take I 95 and go visit one of the other 56 states.

If Sink starts talking about supporting obamacare then she will lose the election.

When Sink loses the election the Democrats will say it was because it was a seat held by Republicans for decades. They will never concede the loss was from her support of Obamascam.

I believed Responsibility until she said she kept her doctor, then I knew she was lying about her Obamascam coverage. Democrats always overreach in their fantasies.

Sink is going to fix Obamacare - that's what she says. How many pages of the Bill has she made through ?

The DEVIL is always in the DETAILS - has she said a single word about WHICH ASPECTS of the Bill will need fixing and how ? I am pretty sure she is going to walk up to Obama and demand it fixed.

Also Sink outspent Jolly 4:1. Wow ! Never seen that big a margin in spending. Yeah - she is going to fix Washington alright.

Don't get cocky. That is how the Democrats lose so many times, they overreach. Just call the Taxed Enough Already people today, congratulate them on their win, and send them $10. to help them win the next time too. Life is good.

Dear, yes, our family has kept our doctor - it has never been an issue to change.

Keep banging the hate drum while some of us have real live positive outcomes where -and we repeat - we keep our doctor.

The people who lost their doctors were the ones who had b.s. policies that could no longer be offered under the Affordable Care Act a/k/a Obamacare. They were crap policies that had provisions like no coverage for preexisting conditions. You don't hear that, you simply hear they lost their doctor. The Republicans/Fox just want to grind on that. Yes, we have to keep insurance companies solvent so the CEOs can line their pockets. Lets take it a step further - a single payor system for all - everyone gets Medicare, screw the insurance companies. Bye-bye. Quick, throw up a distraction and start harping on death panels and Socialism. Sheep. 7,000,000 + people who didn't have insurance now do. Affordably, and won't be clogging up E.R.s and passing the cost to the rest of us. Why don't you educate yourself instead of regurgitating Rush's and Fox's b.s.?

And shame on Rick Scott for refusing federal dollars to expand Medicaid and cover another 800,000 poor. Wouldn't cost the state a dime.

No doubt.
When the Obamascam came to my town, the devastation was incredible. Nothing grows here anymore. The earth has been scorched.
First the Obamascam said I could keep my doctor. LIE! They took my doctor away in an unmarked truck, along with all the other doctors who wouldn't "play ball".
Then they upped my rates by 2,685%. I went from $12.32 a month for me and my wife to $25,986 a month.
And all those free wellness checkups. They called to schedule my mamagram. When I told them I was a man, they told me it doesn't matter, Obama said ALL Americans must have a mamagram and a transorbital vaginal ultrasound. Unfortunately, I failed the mamagram. Turns out I have a rare undiagnosable breastless cancer.
It has been so terrible since Obamacare came to my town.
We tried to stop it. We tried to keep our doctors. We fought as hard as we could, but the Obamascam wouldn't stop. THEY TOOK EVERYTHING. They left nothing for the vultures.
Please FL Please elect the republican before it's too late. Don't let Obamacare destroy your town like it destroyed mine. This is America!!!!!! How could we have let this happen?????
we must give the republicans more power and more money so they can stop Obama in his tracks and just maybe save America from a horrible end
I weep for all Americans........
Stop Obama before it's tooooooo late.
Oh my god.......The obamascam people are at my door.......this could be the end for me
Please......help me noble republicans..........please help me before it's too late.

Obamacare, your last post is so funny you should send it to one of the comedians to have it on their late night show. It's so ludicrous that I HOPE you are joking.

As was said before, if they lost their insurance, they didn't really have insurance. They had a scam policy from a company they paid a few dollars a month to and they offered nothing. Some offered small discounts if you went to their doctor or pharmacy. Good luck with that if you end up with a surgery that runs into the hundreds of thousands. Then you'd be waiting for the county to pick up the tab, as usual. Also, ER's were never intended to be a primary caregiver and that's what the ACA haters seem to believe. They can't be turned away and contribute nothing. They're generally irresponsible people who claim, "I don't need no insurance" and that statement alone tells you a lot about them.

I like the thought of people with pre-existing conditions now being able to buy health insurance, the wellness checks ins. companies now have to pay for, the fact that they can't drop you if you've hit a certain amount of expenses or just because they feel like it. I like the fact that the ins. companies can no longer pick and choose if they'd like to pay for a surgery. I also like the fact that the ins.com pany is only allowed a 20% operating cost so now the CEO will no longer get a 12 million dollar Christmas bonus. Instead, the amount they spend under 80% is reimbursed back to their customers every Oct. There are so many good things in the ACA and I'm glad that this Administration had the courage and drive to finally improve our healthcare system. The most industrialized, tech savvy, and powerful nation on earth and we had the poorest ins/healthcare system of all the advanced nations. President Obama and his Adm. are the ones to thank for it.
