So, we now not only have to support lush lifestyles for sick homosexuals, but we have to let them misrepresent interest in medical coverages very few of them will ever pay for...
Gee, coldweiner...you sound bitter.

Calm yourself. It's a very miniscule amount of your tax dollars which will go to support the folks who don't have the kind of sex you prefer. You don't mind paying for the Viagra of 20 million heterosexual men, so don't begrudge the 30,000 homosexual men who weren't already carrying insurance, some friggin insurance. Okay?

What premiums?

80% of those who've 'signed up' are the uninsured who NOW qualify for expanded Medicare in their States. They don't pay premiums, they pay co-pays.

Don't get me wrong - as a part-time worker, and a self employed taxpayer, I would LOVE for Medicare to have been expanded in my State. I would SO qualify under the guidelines of every State which has elected to do so. As it stands, however, since my State refused to expand Medicare, and the self-employed are the hardest hit by insurance premiums, I am STILL uninsured, and will sacrifice next year's tax refund to the Feds, as a penalty for not buying health insurance.

Trust me - it's cheaper. And as a believer in holistic medicine, a naturopath, and a person whose fundamental beliefs about health don't coincide with the AMA's, I wouldn't have any use for 'heath insurance' anyway. It covers nothing of which I'd avail myself.

No thanks.

The propaganda mouth piece for the right-wing is #1 in cable news… more people on the right huddle around their TV rocking back and forth as they eat the BS fox news is feeding them and yet, somehow those people weren’t enough to win the Presidency in 2008, and especially in 2012. Now anyone with an ounce of common sense understands that people on the Left, we intelligent Americans are not fixated on one thing like you right-wingers; we have much more to select from than “news”.
But hey, if you like your news channel you can keep you news channel because you didn’t build that, right?

LOL, I’ve been satisfied with being #1 on Election Night while you’re frustrated with losing to President Obama, but hey, fox news is #1…

First of all the Democrats are lying about the numbers of sign ups. They are closer to 5,000,000 then 7,000,000, and 9 million people have lost the insurance they wanted to keep. So we are really worse off then before. Their baloney numbers are being exposed everywhere, in newspapers, on T V. They are a joke. Millions of people, mostly the young they desperately need, will ignore them all together.

Politico's Dylan Byers: MSNBC in Freefall
Sunday, 30 Mar 2014 03:43 PM
By Greg Richter
MSNBC's ratings and revenue are in the tank, and it doesn't look like the left-leaning cable news channel has much hope of recovery, says Politico media columnist Dylan Byers.
The favorite news channel for liberals rose to prominence criticizing President George W. Bush, and hit its peak during President Barack Obama's first campaign in 2008, Byers noted. But as Obama's presidency has lagged in recent years, so have MSNBC's fortunes.
Though competitors Fox News Channel and CNN also saw viewership decline in 2013, neither experienced the dismal decline of MSNBC, according to the Pew Research Center.
And worse for MSNBC, Fox's revenues have skyrocketed and CNN's have grown steadily over the past decade. MSNBC's were on a slow crawl, and now are projected to drop 2 percent.
Prime time on MSNBC is just hours of what often seems like "feigned outrage," Byers writes. "And the daytime strategy – giving shows to kids in their 20s and 30s, in an apparent bid to reach the youths – is comically bad, and rendered absurd at every commercial break when the catheter ads come on."
The 2016 presidential elections will help MSNBC, Byers admits, but will do the same for all cable news outlets. For the long term, MSNBC must figure out what to do during non-election years, he said.
The channel's big shows, "The Rachel Maddow Show," "Hardball with Chris Matthews," and "Morning Joe" should be saved, Byers said. The rest of the channel, however, "is in need of a restart."
In a video produced by Politico, Byers suggested the only hope for MSNBC would be the election of "a really, really far-right Republican they could harp on for four years."
His co-host, Hadas Gold, said they might just get that after the 2014 midterms. Gold suggested MSNBC wipe out its entire daytime schedule and hire more hosts like Maddow. The network is perceived as "elitist" even by liberals, Gold said, and speaks only to the New York-D.C. corridor.
The Washington Post's media blogger Eric Wemple wasn't surprised at MSNBC's demise.
Wemple said his analysis at year's end found "a lot of panel discussions that lean left; tons of volunteer lefty blather; and not nearly enough reporting from the NBC News folks that MSNBC can summon for segments

<quoted text>Another bullshitter from Huntington Station - still teaching your fantasy staudents how to become stupid I see?

The IRS inspector general said this week that while some liberal groups were given extra scrutiny by the tax agency, they were not subjected to the same invasive queries as tea party groups — a finding that seems to confirm a political bias was at play.

In a letter sent late Wednesday and released Thursday, Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George said that just 30 percent of groups with the word “progressive” in their name were put through special scrutiny for tax-exempt applications, but 100 percent of groups with “tea party,”“patriot” or “9/12” in their name were subjected to invasive questioning.

Now, why do YOU support republicans whom have not supplied a balanced budget in over 30+ years? Why do you support a party who always rides the "Smaller Government" mantra, yet are the direct responsibility for expanding government?

I can give direct examples of just how expansive government has become under republican rule, as far back as Nixon.

And where is your proof of millions paid in taxes?

Your faux theory of ridicule working is about as successful as Obama's ObamaCare. Make no mistake, Benghazi is real, and there will be real consequences for Hillary and Obama, when put under oath.

The only ones who think the election was not honest are always the ones who lost.
Progressives wrote new books on it? Think again, when Bush lost the popular vote, but was finally placed in power by the SCOTUS.
And who started the nonsense "Government is the problem"?
Reagan did that one.
Every republican since Nixon has always, consistently, grown the size of government, despite consistently running on a smaller government platform.
The 2000 election was a constitutional result. It was check and balances situation. Of course we watered down the document so bad and have a massive government that the difference is not that different. The screwing happen on both sides. Gore is a whore. He is the Gore Whore. Assinged by the new world order to push global warming. and of course, he does not have to abide by any silly laws enacted. Bush was not as advertised and not a christian as advertised. He advance the police state tyranny that is overwhelmed by the constant waste of money on wars agenda of the progressives and kept quiet by the majority of RINOS and NEO CONS that control the Repub side.
