Why would the spineless cowards of the GOP leadership led by McConnell being rubber stamp to the Obama regime that uses our tax money to buy votes of the sick, poor, illegal invaders from all over the world, voluntarily unemployed and disable that live on the back of the American people with free food stamps, free Obama phone, free Obamacare and free housing to terrorists such as the Boston Marathon bombers which means trillion dollars overspending by Obama? Why would any GOP RINO support financing the individual portion of the Obama care while Obama delaying the bad portion of the law thus supporting lawlessness, waste and targeting the conservatives by the IRS henchmen that need financing?

I do not consider McConnell nor Boehner to be any sort of conservative leadership. I hope others aren't fooled by their phony tans and even phonier smiles. They're almost as bad as the Obama regime.

Come On, McConnell. Stand up and tell everyone in the nation that no one has the right to health care. If you really wanted health care you would have been born in a nation with universal single payer. If you are not rich, go away.

Obamacare is a good idea. It will save taxpayers, hospitals, and health professionals money. It will reduce the debt. Most of the tea party crazies would benefit from Obamacare. Why are they against it is the real question. Obamacare was a conservative idea and it was implemented by a conservative in Mass. It works there and will work for the nation.

The idea that progressives help the needy to "buy votes" is absolutely moronic, this reform does nowhere CLOSE to enough to help the sick but it is a good first step and will save lives.
The Affordable Care Act is the law. It passed both houses, was signed by the President, AND withstood a SCOTUS challenge. Those trying now to defund it are the cowards. The bigotry of calling immigrants "invaders" is cowardice. The despicable LIE that poverty is "Chosen" is cowardice. If you think being poor is so great, give it a try. It's the WEALTHY living on the backs of the American people, enjoying obscene luxury while the workers who create their wealth can't even feed their family.
and the LEFT was targeted more by the IRS than the right. You're choosing ignorance by swallowing the propaganda of the extremist right instead of learning the TRUTH. You want to pretend Obama is this flaming leftist, he's nothing of the sort. Meanwhile the GOP is in the hands of the hard right, and you cry because they're not extremist ENOUGH and bigoted ENOUGH. Lunacy.

Democrats "buy" the votes of the sick and the poor with concern about their needs. Your kind do not possess the required capital.

Obamacare would be better if it was public option/ single payer. There is room for improvement. Still better than nothing.

If you've seen McConnell and Boehner smiling, you've witnessed a miracle. And if you think McConnell has a tan, you probably think Boehner is Sammy Davis Jr.

The Obamacare will bring disaster to the American people that voted for it as millions of Americans will seek medical help but will not be able to find it with no doctors available as they will be taken to serve tens of millions of foreign illegal invaders of the sick and poor from all over the world that will take over the Hospitals and medication drugs. Obama cannot care less about the American elderly and sick that are not his ‘favorite voters’ anymore as he shifted his effort to stay in power by all means using the foreign illegal invader votes in return for free Obamacare, free Obama phone and free Obama food stamps and housing aid without working or paying any taxes. Half of the Americans that work hard to feed the other half of liberal parasites will not be able to pay the new high rates for medical service that will not be available without waiting months and months in long line of the new forever lasting 'waiting lists'. Yet, the GOP RINOs who care only for their seat will go along with the Obama transformational agenda while forgetting that their vote to finance Obamacare and IRS henchmen that supervise the Obamacare means death of the GOP as a party and the birth of new third party on its ruins.

As if federal taxes are not high enough the federal government has to issue trillions of $$$ of IOUs / treasury notes to fund reckless federal spending.

Want to find out just how ignorant Americans are? Ask them a question about the federal nature of the federal reserve bank such as "What part of the federal government does the federal reserve bank belong to?"
