These Kennedys are cockroaches. Just when you think one has disappeared, another one pops up. When how long will this above the law dynasty continue to be in power until people wake up and keep these bums out?

I can't wait for Obama to give me $2,500 as my health care rebate. He promised me. He promised it 20 times.

It's an excellent testimonial, not just for Kennedy, but all the socialist (bordering on communist), tax the hell out of everything, let me run your life cause you're too stupid, spend other people's money, worthless DEMOCRATS.
If Michele was finally proud to be American when her husband was elected, I'm ashamed to call myself one today!

THIS IS CRAP. PEOPLE NEED TO GET A JOB AND BUY THEIR OWN INSURANCE. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE DEMISE OF THE AMERICAN DREAM. THE MORE YOU WORKS THE MORE THE DEMOCRATS GIVE TO THOSE LAZY BASTERDS THAT ARE JUST WORKING THE SYSTEM FOR HENDOUTS. I COMPLETELY DISAGREE WITH ALL OF THIS AND HOPE IT IS OVERTURNED!!!!

Angel, not everyone can get a good paying job. That's life. But, now, everyone can get decent healthcare coverage. I can't believe how much outrage this causes - especially from people who call themselves Christian.

It was never up to the government to provide health care for everybody.

No, but as a campaign promise, and the fact that the people who voted for Obama (the majority) wanted health care reform, it appears that the people wanted that. Though the opposers think they are the majority, they are only the majority whining on forums.

The problem is not the inability of people to obtain decent health care, but the choices people put ahead of the cost of buying insurance. Most so-called "poor" households have two or three televisions, excessive movie collection to go with their DVD players. Most have Cable or Direct TV with internet service and everyone has cell phones, Ipods, etc.ect.
Life is the result of the "choices" we make and if health insurance is as important as the Obamacrats say it is, then why don't people place it at the top of their "things to get" list?
We have become a nation of muchers and piglets sucking on the tit of government programs funded by hard working people who only ask to be "left alone". They are the backbone that drives this nation. It never has been and it never will be hypocrats like Obama who have never earned an honest day's living since graduating from college. And by the way, there is nothing "Christians" about spending other people's money, which is the only thing that democrats know how to do.

You are so cute when you're being sarcastic, dearest. Clearly this was not the will of the majority of the American people if he had that much difficulty with his own party and had to rely on deceptive means to pass it. Don't you agree, dumpling?

I prefer sweetheart. Anyone who is dealing with people who get campaign financing from any industry within the realm of the medical field is going to have difficulty with those very bought off people.

Why is it that the so-called "majority" only applies when it favors liberals? During Roe V Wade, the majority of Americans opposed abortion, but the liberals used the courts to shove it down our throats.(majority be damn) The same holds true for prayer in school, gay marraige and internet porn. Besides, Obama and Hillary were neck and neck and the convention would've gotten nasty if Hillary hadn't been bribed with the Sec. of State job. Hillary voters were begged to for Obama despite Hillary herself pointing out his inexperience, and their unwillingness to do it. But that only proves that democrats never vote substance, but always place the party before family, community, national security and even religion.
Now that every poll shows the MAJORITY of Americans opposing Obamascare, you chose to ignore that as well. Typical liberal response.

That is one way of looking at it, sweetheart. However, do you really believe he should have had this degree of difficulty getting the bill passed?

What are you going on about? When I said the majority, I was talking about the fact that the dude got elected for the presidency. In order for that to have even happened, the majority had to have voted for him. If you want to get into the popular vote issue, he won that too. That's what I was tlaking abot in reference to the majority. Since health care reform was one of his major platforms, if not the biggest, it appears that the majority of people liked the idea.
