    Like what did we have to do with Obama Care, no republican voted on it, what so hard to understand. The Democrats voted on it only after massive changes. Get over it.

    What planet are you on Stuart?! The Democrats unilaterally passed Obamacare. The Democrats unilaterally implemented it. Obama and his picked people did all the roll out.
    .
    Obamacare is solely the property of the Democrat party.
    .
    As for the other “pots boiling over” I’d say that Harry Reid is the major stumbling block to anything useful happening on those subjects.

    I’ll have the “I will not raise taxes on the poor or middle class” . And a side of “if you like your plan – you can keep your plan”. And have the chef remove his disguise , everyone knows who’s been whipping up these lies! Definitely some of Stuarts acid flashback induced work.

    Actually, a great majority of Americans, including Republicans, like everything that’s in Obamacare. A majority of all parties want it fixed, not repealed. They also want the immigration bill, the minimum wage hike, a farm bill, roads, ENDA, tax reform, and many, many other things that the GOP has blocked in the house. There will be great embarrassment when the web site gets fixed and everyone likes their new, cheaper, more comprehensive health plans, and we realize that the GOP has zero accomplishments for four years controlling the house (except 47 futile votes against a law that helps all Americans get insurance, vastly increases the freedom to change careers, and lowers health care costs).

    Please look up the record. This year, the Senate passed a budget, the House passed a budget, then 14 times the repubs in the Senate blocked it from going to conference. Please stop blaming this on Harry Reid. This is not a secret—do a little research.

    Wow. Somebody needs to switch to decaf and turn off FOX, Limbaugh, Hannity and O’Reilly.

    While I recognize Mr. Obama has brought much of the criticism above on himself, I would also like to ask what the Republican healthcare plan is, AND, where is the laser focus on job creation that was promised in 2008 and 2010 and 2012.
    It is hard to build a barn, but any jack ass can knock one down if they focus on kicking hard enough. The dems are failing our nation, but the failure of commentators to recognize the failure of Republicans as well is hypocritical at best and at the worst, childish.
    How many of you have actually read the letters of those who wrote the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and even the Federalist Papers? Please consider reading such missives as they contain the intent and hopes of those who founded our nation, and not the hopes and dreams of those who, like those who quote the bible, take words out of context to their own ends. We must not be a people who believe that “ends justify the means.”. The use of a lie to advance a plan is dishonorable, immoral, and unethical.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    DASHARKIE said “You do realize that roughly 15,000,000,000 people will still be left uncovered by this law right?”

    Big numbers are hard. 30 Million will be left uninsured under Obamacare, not 15 Trillion.

    Other than that, your posts were right on.

    Dear Winnie (the Pooh),
    “you do realize” that the “30 million left uninsured under Obamacare” is largely due to those states (GOP) who chose not to help their poor and refused the new Medicaid program?

    Dear NFLSKINFUL,

    but surely you can tell us of this unknowable, mysterious GOP plan? I double-dog dare you.

    hmmmmm, it is easy to tell others to “do research”, something I do all the time. But normally, I try to provide an article or two that backs up my claim. Not always, but normally I try.

    So please, point me in the right direction. A website or a new outlet that carries this story. I looked but was left not satisfied.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/24/us/politics/senate-passes-3-7-trillion-budget-its-first-in-4-years.html?_r=0

    I can find where they senate passed a budget (3.7 TRILLION dollars) but not where the minority republicans blocked it 14 times (how exactly does the minority block anything?)

    Anyway, I eagerly await your response.

    You are missing the Pressure Cooker,, Labeled
    Midterm Election!!
    and its about to explode.
    Considering people’s attitude to both House and Senate, both Parties.
    Mr. Great Chief could find himself in trouble.

    Stu, the Republicans had literally NOTHING to do with Obamacare coming into law. I guess sometimes it’s hard to see reality from the haze generated by your “special” Kool Aid.

    @Nantucket19

    Thanks. I see one article claims 21 not 14 BUT the one I submitted says that the Senate PASSED a budget so no matter what reason the GOP had for blocking passage temporarily in the end it WAS PASSED.
