Lettuce see...

A hard working person that can't afford health care being saved from dying because he/she received emergency care under Obamacare, or,

A highly expensive Italian sports car that most people can't afford, working or not...

Yeah...Ok.

Strange things our minds conjure up...
Maybe the excessive drug use has something to do with the "conjuring", eh Ringo?

I suppose no one in your family has received social security? If so, give it back...That's a socialist program.

Disability? Tell them give it back...You sound like you have all the answers...

Easy, trigger! I actually don't use drugs... and I agree with a lot of the things you post. We're on the same side. I was goofing around with the "Debo" reference. Relax.
Yeah

I didn't vote for him, I disagree with everything he stands for, and I hope all his policies fail.
He's all yours, ma'am. I want nothing to do with him, his politics, or his sycophantic lackeys.
lol! Of course you don't son!

Think we didn't already know that?

Failure is what people like you hope for. Personally, I think you're better off leaving for a place you believe is better than America! You'd be much happier that way... and so would real Americans!
Yeah

Pick any one of them... they're all better than what we currently have where private insurers are sucking consumers dry. Any one of them would obviously be implemented through taxation. In the big picture though, the money saved on ridiculous private insurance profits and copays would more than make up for the new tax "burden". The bottom line is that we need to take self-interested private parties out of the equation.

Both my parents collected SS for the few years they were still alive after late retirements for both.
They collectively contributed apox. a half million dollars to the program and received far less than 50K in benefits.
For tax payers,thats a far more recurring theme than taking more out than they put in.
Unless of course you work for the unions or public sector,then all bets are off.

If Obama fails, America fails. I guess that means you hope America fails... just to prove your ignorant point. Do me a favor and get the f*ck out of my country.

Yeah, right. But for the time being you'd rather see more suffering in order to prove your point. You are a spiteful piece of sh*t, just like a lot of your party.

Obama - 332 electoral votes...62,611,250 popular votes.

Yeah, Romney's pretty sure he can't move his shit to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. this year...Mrs. Jarrett was not on the ballot.
