    When the tea party guy does’t read what’s in his pockets, it really doesn’t affect anyone. When the well meaning donkey doesn’t read what doesn’t fit in his pockets it leaves quite a bit of damage in it’s wake.

    As long as you signed it into law before you read it, you’ll be OK?

    The recent budget, passed by both parties, was about as long, and much less “read” as the ACA. And it had a lot more pork in it. The difference is that after months of discussion and debate, congress knew what was in the ACA before they voted. Yes, even Nancy Pelosi. WIth the budget, we got four different places banning Federal spending for ACORN (which hasn’t existed for four years), and a truly stupid ban on moving the Vatican embassy to a safer, cheaper, more spacious spot that’s closer to the Vatican. Because conservatives can’t pass budgets in a rational manner.

    Actually, He did. That is how he knows just how lawless this Administration is.

    These days what would be the point? The Obamanation is destroying it anyway.

    The duty of government is to promote the general welfare, not provide it. We need to hit the ‘reset’ button on our government because it is doing far more than it should be doing.

    Hope that constitution will get you medical coverage in the emergency room.

    What gets me medical coverage in the emergency room is the result of years of education and work. The same thing that gets me a nice house, new cars, nice clothes, interesting vacations, etc. Or do you also think they should be entitlements too?

    Having my health insurance cancelled after 40 years of paying premiums is what gets me medical coverage in the ER.
    .
    My house and car and other benefits came from my life of work and investing.
    .
    The insurance company is the only real culprit involved. All the others who got portions of my hard earned money gave me a return on my investment.
    The health insurance company is the only genuine thief I have encountered that operates openly.

    You would be wrong on the macro scale David. Being well read means you can often infer a correct set of conclusions without having to read some specific thing.
    On the other hand illiteracy leaves you also largely incapable of understanding anything other than the simplest ideas.
    .
    Thus, someone well read doesn’t have to read the ACA in totality to be about to infer and determine that it is a disasterously bad piece of legislation.
    On the other hand, an illiterate who doesn’t understand much simply because of a lifetime of lack of exposure to ideas is likely to fall for the shuck and jive of the used car salesmen telling you Obamacare is a good thing.

    I don’t. There is nothing in the Constitution guaranteeing my medical coverage. There’s also nothing in it saying someone will put a roof over my head or food on my plate.

    @Stipple

    You didn’t tell us why your health insurance was cancelled. Was it because it didn’t provide the coverage mandated by 0bamacare?

    Chipper forgot to show the Tea Pottys personal copy of the Patriot Act which he no doubts worships more than the constitution.

    I have yet to talk to a “dyed in the wool” TEA party person, or seen any of their writings, that indicate they can actually READ and UNDERSTAND that “slimmer” document.

    How big is the stack of papers made up of court decisions clarifying the Constitution?
