    Or perhaps it might be a little better if the Tea Party hadn’t forced cuts to the Center for Disease Control and funding for scientific research.

    Bush 43 was not in the military. Being AWOL from the Texas National Guard does not count.

    The Affordable Care Act was a Republican idea. At the core it is virtually unchanged from the 1989 Heritage Foundation proposal. In 2009 the president wanted a Canadian style single payer system. The Republicans rolled out their 1989 proposal that had worked so well in 2006 in Massachusetts under Mitt Romney. Obama fought that, but eventually said I like that. As soon as he said he liked the Republican plan, they all stepped away from it – within days.

    It is called bigotry. Essentially if the Black guy in the White House says he likes something, it has to be bad. Why do you think a Fox News poll found that 14% of Republicans approved of Obamacare and 22% approved of the Affordable Care Act.

    “Capital, vol 1” (No Das) by Karl Marx is actually a very straight forward description of capitalism. Many of the insights from that volume are found in standard textbooks. He was after all, an economist. It was the only volume published in his lifetime. You would be surprised to find that the words “socialism” and “communism” never appear. Vols 2 & 3 were posthumously published by Fredrick Engles and he made many changes.

    Did you know that Obamacare was conceived by the conservative think tank the Heritage Foundation in 1987? It became one of the focal points of Newt Gingrich’s alternative to Hillarycare back in 1994. It was the foundation of Romneycare in Mass. It was a republican idea until Mr. Obama said that he thought it was a good idea too.Then suddenly, it was a bad idea.
