No it isn't working. People will still hate Obamacare.
That maximum pain is causing embarrassment to their party.

Any ashole can "talk" about it, where's the "do"?

"Libertarians believe you should be able to opt out of Social Security and invest your money in your own personal retirement account. An account that you own and control - one that politicians can't get their hands on.
Republicans and Democrats say it can't be done - that your Social Security taxes are needed to pay benefits to today's retirees. Instead of letting you invest in your own future, they want you to have faith that someone else will pay your benefits when it comes time for you to retire.
Although most won't admit it publicly, their "solutions" to the Social Security crises all come down to some combination of tax increases and benefit cuts.
Libertarians know that there's a better way.
Countries like Chile, Mexico, Britain, and Australia have successfully made the transition from their failed Social Security systems to healthy systems based on individual retirement accounts. In Chile, over 90% of workers have opted out of the government-run system. It's time America did as well.
The federal government owns assets worth trillions of dollars - assets that it simply doesn't need to perform its Constitutional functions. By selling those assets over time, we can keep the promises that were made to today's retirees, and to those nearing retirement, while freeing the rest of America from a failed Social Security system.
Libertarians will introduce and support legislation to give you that choice, and put you in control of your own retirement future."
Galt agrees that one should be able to opt out of Social Security and invest money in a personal retirement account. George Bush tried to head in this direction but was beaten down.

The problem do you tell people that the benefits they were promised were never funded?

CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR, HOST: But what is going to happen? I mean, are you clear on where a compromise is going to be? It's got to be discussed before the end of the year, no?

PAUL KRUGMAN: No. Some years down the pike, we're going to get the real solution, which is going to be a combination of death panels and sales taxes. It's going to be that we're actually going to take Medicare under control, and we're going to have to get some additional revenue, probably from a VAT.


So, you're calling Krugman a liar?

Paul Krugman - Ivy educated liberal, Nobel Memorial winner in economics - doesn't know what he's talking about?

The 8 Craziest Things Ted Cruz has said:
1. On Obama’s plot to kidnap him:“So this afternoon President Obama has invited the Senate Republicans to the White House. So after leaving here, I’m going to be going to the White House. I will make a request. if I’m never seen again, please send a search and rescue team. I very much hope by tomorrow morning I don’t wake up amidst the Syrian rebels.”

Now, this is funny coming from someone in the Senate. It's like having Will Rodgers there.

2. On the press:“The media wants America to give up and allow this country to keep sliding off the edge of the cliff.”

Sounds accurate to me.

3. On the Constitution:“This is an administration that seems bound and determine to violate every single one of our bill of rights. I don’t know that they have yet violated the Third Amendment, but I expect them to start quartering soldiers in peoples’ homes soon.”

Sounds accurate to me.

4. On the hecklers who interrupted his speech:“Is anybody left at OFA headquarters? I’m actually glad that the president’s whole political staff is here instead of actually doing mischief in the country

Funny, but has a basis in truth, like all comedy.

7. On the Cold War:“Our foreign policy is detente, which I’m pretty sure is French for surrender.”

I'm pretty sure Ted Cruz wasn't in the Senate when the Cold War ended in 1989.

8. On Vice President Biden:“You don’t need a punchline. You just say his name, people laugh.”

What rock do you live under?

"Canada has been able to develop a fairly successful system of healthcare rationing by balancing the conflicting concerns of equal access and cost efficiency, federal funding and provincial control, and public sector management and private sector provision. Financial constraints limit the kinds of services included within the notion of equal access, however, forcing healthcare providers to make difficult choices about who will receive a particular healthcare service."


I forgot! You are a zombie that believes Obama, Democrats & the Ministry of Propaganda (liberal news media).

OK Democrat, you can go back to watching your cartoons now.

The TEA Party will continually be opposed by RINOs because the RINOs don't want to cede the power of controlling the party. They will always be opposed by Democrats because they are capitalist constitutionalists and not Marxist communists.

The confrontations will continue until the RINOs finally join the party they actually belong to.

Its my hope (and new poll numbers are very encouraging) is that this most recent nonsense will kill the Republican Party. The party is non-functional in its factionalism. The next three biggest organized and balloted parties are, in descending order: the Libertarian Party, Green Party, and the Constitution Party. The Libertarian Party speaks for itself, the Constitution Party is for all the Jesus Nazis, old school republicans would probably split between the two. Those two parties can caucus against the Democrats. I hope too that the Green Party will pull members away from the Democratic Party once the Republican Party is no longer the threat that binds the two now. Environmentalists and hippies are as disgusted with the Ds as Libertarians are with the Rs.
Then we might have a representative government that would be necessarily smaller because only shared purposes would make their way into law. For instance: the Constitution Party won't be able to ban abortion because that's not on any of the other parties' agenda meanwhile the Ds wouldn't be able to do something like expand welfare because that's not on any other parties' agenda either. But, the Green, Libertarian and D parties could all caucus against the Constitution Party to reduce military spending and overseas occupation.
If massive numbers of Republicans move to the Libertarian Party, they will take over the party and make it adhere to its platform.

2.4 Government Finance and Spending

All persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. We call for the repeal of the income tax, the abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We oppose any legal requirements forcing employers to serve as tax collectors. Government should not incur debt, which burdens future generations without their consent. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes.

"The Republican Party finds itself in trouble -- big trouble. Obamacare is not going to be defunded, and the GOP will have to make a deal with the president. And you know who's most happy about this? Hillary Clinton, that's who. Hard-right Americans should understand that Democrats will win next year's midterm elections and the presidency of 2016 if the Republican party does not begin to solve problems
