She's way worse than he'll ever be. She's got the Clinton Dynasty at her back. And Obama is an American. And if he isn't don't you think it was stupid of the election people not to check? Or......they did check and by God......He's an American. Awwwwwwwww

<quoted text>For one thing Obamacare has only been out 10 days. You just want to destroy it from the beginning. And for second, the insurance robber barons have been killing us for decades. Where you been? Under a rock?
That's the point. Insurance companies have been robbing their customers for decades and Obamacare did nothing to reign in those costs. That would have been real reform if they could have created larger insurance pools that would have resulted in more competition and lower costs. It would also have been nice if they made drug companies compete which would have resulted in lower prices but they didn't do that either. Obamacare is a joke that protects price gouging monopolies along with its many other negative affects.

If you want no government, move to Somalia. Let some other country take care of the pirates off the coast.
No need to move....as i recall, Minnesota Church groups have been instrumental in bringing in groups from Somalia and the Sudan.....Groups that have eventually, been found on government assistance....Guess you'd know something about this, eh?....

And apparently you are addicted to gubmint and the theory that they will cover every need of yours, at the "teabager" conservatives' expense. No wonder you despise them so, they actually got your number, mykro dick. You are a parasitic drag on this country and it's taxpayer base.
Live with your name douchebag.

Live with your bagger stupidity:

You morons hung that moniker on yourselves. Now you get to live with it forever:

Jay Nordlinger at the National Review online took down the page where he originally posted this, but once anything is online, it NEVER goes away:

The first big day for this movement was Tax Day, April 15.2009 And organizers had a gimmick. They asked people to send a tea bag to the Oval Office. One of the exhortations was “Tea Bag the Fools in D.C.” A protester was spotted with a sign saying,“Tea Bag the Liberal Dems Before They Tea Bag You.” So, conservatives started it

Choke on it, teabagger.

Any time there is negative chat about 'baggers'(T.axed E.nough A.lready, TEA), it is an indication that the person doing the chatting is taking in MORE benefit from the government than they actually contribute to the government.
Immediately one KNOWS that a leach/parasite is speaking and there is no credibility in their words.
Live with the name you gave yourselves. Teabagger.

<quoted text>It will give people care. We have a choice. Pay once a month like car insurance. Or pay $20.000 every time I get sick. I'll pay the insurance. No more emergency room for me. I get a real doctor. And it WILL be cheap. Cheaper than it is now. Now the insurance companies got 40 million new customers. Now they have to compete in a competitive market. Insurance companies have made enough money. People over money.
People are not cars. However if you're going that route then you shouldn't have any problem making people paying for a mandatory life insurance policy ($100 a month whole life), buying mandatory renters or home owners insurance ($50 a month minimum), mandatory food card for every member of your family ($100 a month for every member and it must be on the prescribed foods list), mandatory clothing card ($100 a month), mandatory recreational usage card ($200 a month only half can be used at diners the other half has to be divided equally between four different hobbies to keep you occupied and being depressed).
These mandatory expenditures every month aren't subsidized. This comes out of what you make every month because the government wants you to spend your money wisely. Have I spent all your SSI and/or SSDI money yet. Don't forget to take out the mandatory $200 -$400 for housing and your $100 for utilities every month.
Just remember the government is going to make sure you spend your money for what's best for you because it's...

Everyone I talk to wants Rand Paul in 2016. He is conservative, can't be demonized, because he is exactly what Americans want, a leader. They are laughing to think the people would let the Democrats choose their candidate. It is probably because the Democrats have to defend Obamacare, and the Benghazi babe. They will spend all their time trying to explain what went wrong with both. We'll have pictures of Ambassador Stevens everywhere, along with pictures of the other 3 dead Americans from the Benghazi massacre. And pictures of people who died awaiting medical care under Obamacare's rationing. This next election is very important. We cannot leave anything out of the campaign.

Looks like the supposedly enlightened progressive liberals on these forums are more than willing to force people to purchase health insurance from a private company just because a person happens to be breathing, but have a problem being told that all those other things to keep them safe and healthy should be a mandatory purchase also.
Hypocrisy at it's finest.

There are several ways around Obamacare. It is a mess. By the time the market[lace gets up, and running we will all be dead of old age. They are each trying to blame the other for the debacle. The Democrats will look you right in the eye, and tell you the glitch is temporary, but it isn't. That is another Democrat lie. It will be months before anything will get done.

Heck the way I see it is if people have to buy healthcare then so be it. We pay through the butt now through medicade and uninsured people now. But then the republicans always say that people should be responsible for themselves. Well paying for your own insurance is just that. The USCongress has the best healthcare and they get it off the government dole. Scrap ACA and give Americans their healthcare . The USCongress is a welfare state in itself. They do no work to solve Americans or Americas problems. They spend better than half a year on vacation and the other half bickering about nothing and yet all YOU Americans do not even have a problem with that because you vote yhe same idiots like Candice Miller of the 10th over and over. Her like the rest of Congress needs to be fired come 2014...And yet the most unproductive Congress EVER in the history of the USA. You Americans should be proud.. lol.... Keep electing them you idiots...
