If the NSA and the IRS are any indication, Obama is very responsive.

Kinda hard to take anything from congressional oversight seriously considering their many witch hunts that lead to absolutely nothing.

Obama is always open and truthful, right?

If you like your insurance plan you can keep it. If you like your doctor you can keep him.

Yea right, what a liar.

Evidently, Obama is encouraged with the support of the GOP RINOs McConnell, McCain, Corker and Graham that collaborate with the liberal media of Obama in besmirching the GOP led House and especially Boehner, Cruz and Lee. Obama was able to defeat the private sector health system with new strict regulations that cause major increase in health care cost, cause millions of Americans to lose their private health insurance, causing millions to lose their job or converting the jobs to part time jobs and in addition Obama made strands in removing spouses and children from their private health insurance that was covered by employees. Obama is running amok forward with the immigration reform with the support of the GOP betrayous RINOs McCain and McConnell & Co that aims at destroying the GOP as party that rules the House and converting America to the land of the non-American poor and sick of the world. Obama and McCain’s promises about closing the border with hundreds of thousands more US guards is worthless and every American knows that Obama will never close the gate to prevent tens of millions of Mozlem Brothers from the Middle East get asylum and food stamps once they get to America by all means. Thanks to the GOP RINOs of the senate Obama can defeat the GOP and make America the welfare country of the American fools and of the poor and sick of the world.

He's as ignorant a president as he was a Senator.

This an issue where there is room for some legitimate beefs.
After 9\11 an over ambitious intelligence gathering capability was assembled. Part of the program was to untangle ourselves from the W.'s wars and the paranoid logic of the neo-con President.
So far the grade in this is poor

We need someone to be accountable for the disasters of Benghazi, IRS, NSA, Fast and Furious and now Obamacare (600 million spent) and it does not work.

I was shocked to hear MSNBC say that Durbin LIED when he said he heard a top GOP official say that they could not stand to look at Obama. Now we know how crap gets started up - by the lies of the Dems. Obama said it was not true. Durbin should be called on the carpet for this.

It's time you Obama supporters take ownership of this buffoon. Stop minimizing his near-universal failure. Forever pointing to Bush isn't going to absolve you of the incredible stupidity of electing an unqualified Chicago community organizer simply because he gave stem-winding speeches and crudely aped the mannerisms of an intellectual.

Obama should do what Bush used to do,
claim executive privilege that covers
everybody who works for him.

So once you're either kicked off of your current plan or dumped onto the exchange by your employer, here's the answer on the doctor question right from Øbama-Scare dot gov.

Can I keep my own doctor?

Depending on the plan you choose in the Marketplace, you may be able to keep your current doctor.

There are at least thirty dollar bills looking for a place to land for responsibility assignment in Øbama's administration, but no one can tell them where the buck stops, particularly not Øbama because he learns about everything in his administration from news reports.
