    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.

    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.

    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?

    I missed the part in the Constitution where it’s said that I’m forced to pay for other people’s health care…

    “coverage mandated by Obamacare”
    .
    Negative, it was cancelled due to three cancer tumors. This was going to cost them almost as much as I paid them over 40 years time.
    Obamacare had just got passed but did not take effect immediately so the window to drop me was closing.
    BAM, dumped me like I was burning their fingers.
    Life is not the same as it was, if I could work my old job would be given back. I could afford a car or a home with running water.
    Yeah, and if pigs had wings I would be looking up at them.
    .
    Hostile to the present system and do not understand why saving money and actually helping folks with a single payer has not been enacted.

    Such a short document and yet the ninny can’t understand what it actually means. This is why we need to go into such detail on legislation these days — fools who have to have everything explained down to the last possibility.
    .
    You have to remember that the Constitution was written by men who assumed anyone who was going to govern would have half a brain. They had not anticipated how Roger Ailes would empower himself through the use of morons.
