Yep, only ten percent of those with pre existing conditions bought the insurance. They were the only ones that could afford it.

The GOP has to clean up all of Obama's failures. They have been very busy with all of his scandals - and the whole time the Dems are saying how bad the GOP's are and they continue with their LIES.

The only big bill passed with Obama in office. And it is a complete and utter disaster. Penalty changed to tax by the USSC. They changed the law right there and then. Something they are not allowed to do. Waivers for thousands of friends and cronies to the democrat party. Delays on parts not on others. Increased healthcare premiums instead of decreases as promised. Promised we could keep what we had when in fact in many or most cases we cannot either because it is no longer available or way above what we can afford. Delay the whole bill, call it what it is (a complete failure) and fix it or start over.

opps you got the wrong party - it is Obama that uses scare tactics -(throw grandma over the cliff, sequester will starve the poor, cannot have kids tour the WH, took hot meals away from our troops) now letís talk about Obama's wars - Libya, Syria, Afgan, Pakistan and all of the kids and civilians the DRONES killed when he order the attack. As far as a robust economy - what country are you living in - do you know what the unemployment rate is and how many are not on the unemployment rate because they ran out of time?

ANTHER idiotic Congressional "investigation" from the Teabagger House....just what the nation needs. MORE idiotic, meaningless votes against "Obamacare," at the top of the far-Right's radical agenda of programs to sabotage. MORE hatred, division, and insanity from the far Right.

The American people need to rally, to get together and REJECT this radical agenda in '14. If we don't get rid of the 'baggers, our country may fall into complete chaos....even rioting and violence are possible if we can't regain control.

Obamacare is flawed, but Republicans are insane. It's easy to see which one we should keep and which we should dump, given the choice.

The Teabag Party, the party of tax cheats, scofflaws, extremists and saboteurs, needs to be investigated CONSTANTLY. When you make false filings for tax-exempt status and oppose even the normal PAYMENT of income taxes, you forfeit your right to be treated equally.

I call on Obama and the IRS to direct regular audits of EVERY branch of the Teabag Party. They simply CANNOT be trusted.

The only reason why they held this off was next year is the mid term elections. With these Obama care mandates put in place its would bankrupts thousands of small businesses and in reaction, voters would vote out its political supporters.

It will be put back into effect VERY soon after next years mid terms
