<quoted text>It's a dumb survey.
You were for the War in Iraq so is it safe to say you think War is the solution to all the world's problems?
Of course if you say yes then I stand corrected, it's an excellent survey and my answer is: no.
Well, considering 111 Democrats went along with the War in Iraq and since that war is over and this president has extended two other wars another five years, don't think you can compare getting rid of threats to civilization with big government micromanaging every aspect of our lives.

But I've almost been brought to tears that you don't really think big government is the solution to all of our probems.

Ah Fox News. I was wondering why all the lemmings were fired up this morning, some of their headlines -
OBAMACARE WOES
- Insurers get faulty data
from glitch-riddled website
- Obamacare site wasn't tested until week before launch
Tell you what folks, for those of you using Internet Explorer go in to advanced settings and check the box to 'show a notification for every javascript error' and then surf the web and see how many you get, you can even go to your beloved Fox News site where you will get about a dozen before you can get the home page to load.
Topix throws errors all the time.
Technically speaking these are glitches.
Trust me it will get very annoying and you will soon be unchecking that button very shortly.
Are you a software or hardware guy?

In my past experiences (most) software guys are douches like you!!!!

Among the IRS' biggest tasks will be to:
*Collect information from employers and insurers: The ACA requires employers to tell the IRS whether an employee has insurance.
At the end of the year, insurers must provide the IRS and policyholders a form verifying coverage status and individuals must include those forms with their federal tax return.
*Figure out who qualifies for subsidies or Medicaid: When a person applies for coverage on an exchange, the information he provides will be cross-checked with income, job and coverage information from the IRS. That cross-check will determine whether someone is eligible for a premium credit, or if he's eligible for Medicaid, which the ACA expanded.
While the IRS is authorized to share income and other data with the exchanges and some federal and state agencies, those third parties may only use that information for determining eligibility for coverage and subsidies, according to the TIGTA report.
*Determine who must pay a penalty: Starting in 2014, individuals must buy qualified health insurance or pay a penalty. Some groups are exempt from the new rule, including those whose income is so low that they're not required to file a tax return.
In 2014, the penalty will be no more than $285 per family or 1% of income, whichever is greater. In 2015, the cap rises to $975 or 2% of income. And by 2016, the penalty would be up to $2,085 per family or 2.5% of income, whichever is greater. The dollar amounts for a single adult would be $95,$325 and then $695 during that same time period.
(Sheesh...$2085 per family sure helps those struggling already.)
The law prohibits the IRS from putting liens or levies on your property to collect the penalty. It may, however, be able to withhold your future refunds if you don't pay.
(In other words, they're fairly impotent to collect penalties.)
*Penalize employers that don't provide affordable coverage: Starting next year, employers with 50 or more employees must provide affordable, qualified coverage to employees. If they don't, they have to pay an "Employer Shared Responsibility payment." The IRS must establish rules and guidance for employers in this regard and collect the penalty from them.

The Supreme Court ruled Obamacare a tax law, so sounds to me like the IRS has a pretty big role - enforce and punish.
Assigning duties to an agency does not equate to "overseeing".

Not winning for the country...but for himself and his one-party vision.
I suggest you look in the mirror as "not winning for the country...but for himself and his one-party vision" is a very good description of a member of the Tea Party.

Obama exploded a health care system 75% of Americans were happy with for 2% of the population.
Obama wants America to be a European socialist democracy except a one-party system to boot.

Europeans don't have any more money to give the government for free stuff anymore but Obama doesn't care about that.

He can't control the people if 75% are happy without big government telling them they're not.

I'm not buying any insurance from the exchange. People who don't like it can get insurance elsewhere. No one is holding a gun to their head to use "a crappy Network/infrastructure".
Yes, we can keep the plan and doctors we already have IF we can afford the rate increases caused by new regulations in the gun-to-our-heads (also known as the ACA), or as long as the plan or doctors we have don't drop us because of new regulations in the gun-to-our-heads (aka the ACA.)

no one likes paying taxes, most don't realize how much they pay. The government is good ay making it look "transparent". I guarantee, if you had to send the irs a check every month, instead of having it taken out beforehand, there would be a revolt.

You have your facts mixed up. The Affordable Care Act benefits 15% of the population. The 2% is the percentage of the population represented by the Tea Party.

Your highly adaptive ego devices enables you USSR to violate your commitments, vilify those who are true to their faith, and you avoid personal sacrifice while feeling great about themselves.

Because of the way your ego works, the politics of liberalism are the bulwarks of your hypocrisy and self-deception.

The nut doesn't fall far from the tree. Cruz's father is just plain batty.
“As a matter of fact, one of the things in Obamacare is that for the elderly, every five years you must have end-of-life counseling,” Cruz's father told a crowd at a Lincoln-Day dinner just north of Denver.“Translation: suicide counseling.”
“I believe the most ominous words I’ve ever heard from Barack Hussein Obama was two years in a row at the State of the Union address when he said,‘If Congress does not act, I will act unilaterally,’” said Cruz.“[It’s] no different than that bearded friend, or dictator, that I left back in Cuba.”
