"House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has promised a vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act as soon as next week, and Mitt Romney has underlined his pledge, if elected president, to dispense with it on his first day in office.

What an enormous waste of progress that would be, given that in its two years of existence the Affordable Care Act has already taken many sound steps toward improving health-care quality, getting a grip on costs and arranging for significantly more Americans to have insurance.

Republicans run the risk of looking like wreckers, not problem-solvers -- not a good image in an election year, no matter what polls say about support for the law."

Republiscum = whining, immature, inept, nasty, cheap clods of dirt. Their promise is to rip away your health care.

Yeah, that works.

At least we now know why the economy imploded. Businesses have been anticipating the largest job killing tax increase in history.

Republicans only need a simple majority and a new President to repeal it now.

No bigger liar then the current non-American President.
The Indiana Factory Workers '94 and John McLame '08 were right about Romney's vulture capitalism-he told them he would 'fix' their working conditions and then Romneycare flip/flop sent their jobs overseas many had kids in school and dying parents

God Bless those Indiana Factory Workers and Ted K.(r.i.p)

"Romney Invested in Medical-Waste Firm That Disposed of Aborted Fetuses, Government Documents Show
And these documents challenge Romney's claim that he left Bain Capital in early 1999."

...But documents filed by Bain and Stericycle with the Securities and Exchange Commission—and obtained by Mother Jones—list Romney as an active participant in the investment. And this deal helped Stericycle, a company with a poor safety record, grow, while yielding tens of millions of dollars in profits for Romney and his partners. The documents—one of which was signed by Romney—also contradict the official account of Romney's exit from Bain."

Another day, another day of pathological lying by Bishop Smut Romney.

Another day, another pathological lie from the smarmiest, sleaziest politician ever...and that is saying a great deal.

ObamneyCare penalty for not having insurance is a tax.

RomneyCare penalty for not having insurance is a tax.

"The remarks are a complete 180 from those made by two top advisers to the Romney campaign in recent days. Spokesperson Andrea Saul, two days ago, said that the governor "thinks [the mandate] is an unconstitutional penalty," not a tax. Top aide Eric Ferhnstrom, that same day, emphatically declared that the campaign did not believe the mandate was a tax.

"The governor believes that what we put in place in Massachusetts was a penalty and he disagrees with the court's ruling that the mandate was a tax," Fehrnstrom said in a Monday interview with MSNBC's "The Daily Rundown."

The comments from Romney, delivered during his July 4 break in New Hampshire, also clearly gave way to the counter-argument that, by his own definition, he raised taxes during his time as Massachusetts governor. The individual mandate, after all, is the concept that Romney helped spearhead as part of the health care overhaul in the Bay State. The penalty that citizens in his home state were subjected to should they opt not to buy insurance is greater than those levied under Obamacare. " HP

Is Bishop Romney INSANE?

Did you see his smarmy, giggling, childish interview on this subject? The reporter could not believe what she was hearing and he thought he could tell this like a funny joke and he would get away with his pathological lying.

Is he insane? He certainly sounds insane.

Given the general infantile nature of most of your posts it would be a waste of time to attempt to explain the difference between a federal and state mandate.

Also notice that if also fail to point out that although the SCOTUS has labeled it a tax, Obama still claims that is a penalty.

Liberalism knows no bounds when it comes to hypocrisy.

If you have health insurance, your taxes don't change. Duh.

You people will talk about anything: Birth Certificates, Kenya, Islam, gay sex, abortion, healthcare.....

except jobs and the economy, that is.

I guess when you don't have a platform, you have to deflect.
How's that working for ya?
From what I can see, Flip Romney just keeps dropping
in the polls, especially with the dancing he and his staff
has done with the 'it's a tax, not it's not' argument.

Talk about shooting himself in the foot.
I'm starting to think Romney likes pain.
Bet he and Anne are into leather, too.
