I don't care what they use as long as they put a screeching halt to the destruction of our Healthcare system. That is why they were elected.

Yea Cheney and the GOP said debt for war is kool...TIME TO END WARS AND TRILLION OR MROE A YEAR FOR MILITARY AND NATION BUILDING. VOTE LIBERTARIAN.
Cheyney was a nasty man. When pressured about Americans wanting the end of wars, he chimed..."so"! That told me we have no power as citizens. Years before, the secular zionist yenta secratary of state for Clinton, Maddie Allbright,(who did not know she was Jewish until late in life" said, "so"...when pushed about the 500 thousand children killed plus mothers in Iraq with the American Embargo of medical supplies and other needs. Evil is evil. And when you support it, after you become aware of it, it means that you may have the same traits. The problem we have is...two parties...choices limited. Everyone is a hater because we are all of different groups when we disagree with something. So now we move to insane policies in many areas that we agree with but say nothing about.

Why don't you ever give the ENTIRE story - see,l azzholes like you and Issa only give little clips - but never the whole story, because you would look like the assholes you are;

"U.P.S. To End Health Benefits For Spouses Of Some Workers
United Parcel Service has told its white-collar employees that it will stop providing health care coverage to their spouses who can obtain coverage through their own employers, joining an increasing number of companies that are restricting or eliminating spousal health benefits. U.P.S. told employees, "Since the Affordable Care Act requires employers to provide affordable coverage, we believe your spouse should be covered by their own employer just as U.P.S. has a responsibility to offer coverage to you, our employee" (Greenhouse, 8/21)."

http://www.kaiserhealthnews.org/daily-report....

Only the white collar, non unionized employees are affected.

Stupid.

Vote Libertarian....... The two main parties are bot corrupt and payed off by by the rich and big business.
Do you believe the libertarian party will win? Reality is, that the libertarian vote can lose elections for Republicans though if ignored. And they were ignored in November. Several states were winnable that may have changed the election. Forcing Ron Paul to leave the convention told us who had power in the party. and since many Repub media people are shills like the progressive media they don't like him anyway. They rather lose then give the people any power.
