The liberal media is all the same. Republican House reckless while the Senate and of course the lazy stupid coward in the White House are the reasonable ones. How dare the Tea Baggers send legislation to the Senate that they know won't get the approval of the thin skinned rat.

So the Repubs send up a bill that won't pass. Guess what, the Dems shoved Obamacare down the throats of the American people, the majority of whom do not want it or approve of it.

The voice of the people is not being heard....by anyone in government. I have to back at least the attempt to correct Obamacare.

Now, the question is, "Is Air Force One an essential service?" Will Obama cancel his trip to Asia (and the search for the perfect golf course, no doubt)? I say tell him to take a taxi...a good dip in the Pacific might bring him to his senses.

Just more posturing by the treasonous teabaggers! Once again they have shown their contempt for this country and its way of life. They are nothing more than lickspittles for the evil koch brothers!

Good point about the Obamacare bill and it be passed by getting shoved down teapublican throats. Check the house and senate records! There is NO record of "Obamacare" being PASSED AT ALL!!!! WHAT DOES THIS TELL YOU??? Obviously, Obamacare is illegal!!

However, the "Affordable Care Act"- now, that went through proper channels. First the house voted on it, liked it and sent it to the senate. They liked it too and sent it the president. He liked it, signed it and it became law! That's how that goes!

Even better, the USSC looked at the ACA and declared it Constitutional! Then, in 2012, Obama ran, essentially with the ACA as his platform. Mitt Romney ran on the platform of being Queen For A Day and repealing the ACA and "other stuff..." on his first day in office.

But, the majority of the American people did not want someone named "Mittens" as their president and as a ruiner of heathcare so, they voted for Obama AND the ACA.

So, actually, "the voice of the people" gas been heard, in the usual American manner.

Now we're just hearing reichwhiners trying to undo the American process.
