It's crashing and burning on it's own.
Why worry about it?

Republicans need to ignore Obamacare, and let it implode on its own.

LOL, now that they have come to grips with the reality that President Obama brilliantly put in place the barriers to prevent defunding the ACA; that ‘We the People’ weren’t going to let them defund the ACA…

Now these stupid tea-baggers are talking about it falling apart on its own… LOL!
Loser talk with their last throws after realizing they’ve completely lost… I love it.

"Stupid tea-baggers"? It is you who is too stupid to understand that the Marine Corps is not spelled as the Marine Corp. So I doubt that you ever were in or else you lied about your sexual preference and were discharged for homosexual activity.

Since you seem to be interested in the subject, perhaps the Gunny caught you doing a little 'tea-bagging' of your own? With of course your face on the receiving end of the 'tea-bag'. So, did you get a dishonorable discharge, a bad conduct discharge or did they just all puke and throw you out?

Republicants? Wow, that is so clever. Did you think of that witty little expression by yourself or did someone help you? I must say - You are so funny! You should write for Leno. Seriously, you are that funny. I think you and Marine Corp (sic) Pat ought to hook up. He's into 'tea-bagging' what's your 'thing'?

Agreed. Wait until the low information voters (i.e. the ignorant) have to start paying increased premiums in such states as Florida +35% and Ohio +41%. Well, they voted for the chimp so let them wallow in the mess that he created. This is all going to be funny to watch.

Once it's fully implimented people will know just how bad nancy, harry and obummer screwed them. Lay offs, 29 hour work weeks, employers hiring temp employees, irs snooping through their medical records, some companies getting waivers and others not, fines...The dem party will get all the credit it deserves and will have no one to blam but themselves when the SHTF.

Let me get this straight.... We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, who have recently demonstrated their objective and professional integrity; written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a Dumbo President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac, and the Post Office all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!

The Republican morons in the House can still
pass a bill to defund Obamacare anyway. Just
to impress their gullible hillbilly constituents
back home if for no other reason.

Go for it, you redneck halfwits!

So you don’t want to respond to the article that is up for discussion because it hurts to think that we have rendered your side completely powerless (OBAMACARE is here permanently), so you instead feel the need to express your expertise on you tea-baggers tea-bagging… next time just admit that you’ve lost and move along.

Obama and crew put in place the ACA to fail, then comes the single payer which will be great for low information voters, but will insure a shortage of doctors and specialist in the near future.

If it is hear, when is Obama going to let it start......oh yes, after the 2014 election.......because it is so great, Obama stops the damage before voters can see it and feel it before the 2014 election.

"Saul Alinsky lives!" code for the cons and their teabagging failures. Cons are going nowhere until you move beyond the bumper sticker mentality.

They don't have the votes. Much ado about another con talking point.
