    This cartoon depicts that manufacturing jobs are bad for the American family (a grind): So why do politicians make efforts for its restoration to our economy ?

    How Congress could take such a good idea like the PPACA and make such a mess out of it is unfathomable.

    Usually I’m a happy lurker, but now you have me confused.
    Let’s see if I’ve got this right: Only the House can originate spending bills. So, to avoid House debate, the Senate Majority Leader hijacked a simple House bill relating to veteran housing. The “Honorable” Mr. Reid stripped out all but the first sentence, tacked on more than 2,000 pages of lobbyist-created healthcare wet dreams without even reading it, retitled it the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and rammed it through the Senate on a party-line vote, still without anyone bothering to read it. The President signed it, also without reading it, and since then the “Honorable” Mr. Reid has refused to permit any healthcare-related debate or House-originated bills to come to the Senate floor.
    But the Republicans are the evil, partisan, gridlocking obstructionists, right?
    Oh, and one other question: exactly when was it that “they did it, too” became moral justification for immoral acts?

    Thank God for the president and his courage to get this law through despite all those that wanted to destroy it.

    “How do we counter the GOP propaganda ?”

    The best way to counter propaganda is to go fact finding. Fact finding is not done by going to political viewpoint sites. It is done by getting original documentation and familiarizing oneself with that documentation. By the way, finding source documents is not always easy. What a law or report is called colloquially may not be anywhere close to what the actual title of the law or report and you won’t find it in the Federal Register or at the Government Printing Office. Sometimes, finding the official title can be difficult. If you decide to pursue finding actual facts, you will find much of what you believe about the way things are kicked in the street. You won’t like a lot of the real facts you find, but suck it up. Real facts are truth.

    All those jobs that either disappeared or were helped to go over seas eliminated most good paying manufacturing jobs. Really short sighted.

    We’ve been getting “trickle up poverty” since 1920-1929, 1980-? and it is still funneling our wealth to to top 1%.

    @Billzebub1

    You mean the Corporate Health Care bill taken form the Republicans? You are correct sir. The fine print maybe be different but it is in its core the same one created by the Heritage Foundation and who endorsed and supported it was two names, New Gingrich & Willard “Mitt” Romney. Republicans were mostly behind it till Pres. Obama and the Democrats joined their ranks.

    We know the orders were ZERO for Obama, anything the Democrats endorse the Republicans become against it even if it is their own idea. Something you don’t want to acknowledge and the HF tried to wipe from their history.

    No, you show us some proof of that assertion.

    The PPACA was a Conservative Idea, Conservatives in both parties had input. We get a slightly softened version. But what it comes down to is that Cons wrote it, Cons rewrote it and a Con president signed it.

    Ever since the Democrats took you and your ilk have been calling it a failure then did everything you can to make sure it was a failure. It is still too early to see if it is a failure or not.
