Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

"Really, I won't pull the ball away"

"..There's already parts of the ACA people are thrilled with..."

Who is going to pay for it? The model is broken.

So, let's get back to the problems.

SS and Medicare both passed after long debate and with STRONG bipartisan votes in both the house and senate.

ACA was written as it was being debated with little or no minority input.

ACA was attached to some wholly unrelated house bill and voted through without even 1 minority vote.

Promises were made to the American people, to garner their support, that were ultimately not kept.

The "law of the land" carves out huge sections of the American people who benefit unequally.

Portions of the "mandates" have been delayed for political purposes. The employer mandate, (reference the DOJ brief), would have caused massive "cancellations" of employer based plans during an election year.

Should I go on? I can, all E-F-F-I-N day.

You just keep listening to "Lucy" Pelosi, see how far you get.

Jaxspp, my friend, there are always good things in theses big government plans. Problem is that someone has to pay for them.

Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid ALL cost far more than the original estimates. That is not to say they are not worth while but they are as close as we can get to a model.

The ACA is another liberal "ponzie scheme" that has already started to collapse.

Now we are starting to hear that most unions will NOT have to pay the "Cadillac tax" on their plans. Another carve out.

This just keeps getting better.

Did I mention that CBO estimates 30 million Americans will STILL be uncovered?

This brief was filed by the D.O.J. almost as the President was stumping "if you like..." in late October 2013.

SOMEBODY is lying. Time to fess up.

Public option? Let's have a vote on that normanlake.

You really think the American people are going to trust the feds with the whole ball of wax?

These morons keep letting "Lucy" convince them that she won't pull the ball away again.

On October 17, the Department of Justice filed a brief in defense of the mandate, asserting the following (on p. 27):

"..[Obamacare’s] grandfathering provision’s incremental transition does not undermine the government’s interests in a significant way. Even under the grandfathering provision, it is projected that more group health plans will transition to the requirements under the regulations as time goes on. Defendants have estimated that a majority of group health plans will have lost their grandfather status by the end of 2013."

What a chance. What an opportunity you had. 5 years of misery so far. 5 years of pitting group against group. 5 years of your way or no way. As you've disdained so many of us, so we return the disdain. Wear it. You've earned it.

If I and my family were there paying homage to Lincoln and his address at Gettysburg, I would not want Obama to be there. His presence would ruin it for me. It would sully it. Perhaps other attendees feel the same. I do know that I am in a group of steadily increasing numbers who disdain him and the damage he has wrought on our nation.

The lie after lie after lie he's told. The manipulation of Federal Agencies. The new Federal Regulation that comes out every 2.5 hours from this administration. The loss of jobs, the staggering debt he's burdened my progeny with. The industries he has decimated. The federal thumb he seeks to place us all under.

I despise his proposed ends and loathe the means. Yes, stay away from Gettysburg. Would that you also step down and stay away from any kind of US public office too, and simply run off somewhere else to live in shame and infamy for the rest of your days. Not because of who or what you are. But because of what you've done and not done.

NOW we see that a great conservative proxy, George Zimmerman, he of shooting a teenage black unarmed youth to death, is now in trouble again, this time for aggravated assault and domestic violence, against his partner, a woman this time. A hero defended by rshrill, in his usual role as advocate for reprehensible behavior. (Cruz, Gohmert, Palin, Beck) Wait til Zimmy shoots a white person, then maybe the nuts will defend his honor because the white guy was homeless.

Amos, I think you hit the nail, so to speak. 'Churches' nowadays are meddling in politics, which is an unseemly bedfellow for a religious institution that enjoys TAX FREE status for some unfathomable reason. Tax them to the full extent.

The "right wingers" didn't vote for any of O'commiecare. You must mean "right wingers" in the democrat party, as this law is wholly owned by democrats. Every jot, every tittle, every "Period".

The democrats steamrolled over every republican in the House and Senate to pass the bill as it is, then unanimously shot down the GOP effort to actually have a real grandfather clause so people could keep what they like. They disallowed Scott Brown a vote at all, who was elected specifically to kill O'commiecare with his single vote.

Of course, much like Obama, both what you say, as well as what you mean, is 100% meaningless...100% BS.

57 shades of crap.

freeloading freeman..States with only two options have only two because you right wingers wouldn't allow the public option. You blame Barry for what Heritage created then stop him from fixing it. Now pay your church property taxes. Churches have enough money to pave 40 acres but not enough to pay your fair share in tax. The gods will get you for that.

Turns out that even while O' was "apologizing" (lying about his lie) and saying only 5% would be affected by losing their grandfather privilege to keep their plans, his own DOJ in a court brief was assuring the court that most people will lose their employer-based plans too. This, in a religious liberty case against O'care.

(Partially summarized article written by Andrew McCarthy)

Also back in 2010 the GOP tried to pass a bill giving real teeth to the grandfather clause allowing people to keep their insurance and every democrat voted it down. Did you get that? Every democrat made certain you could not keep your healthcare plan.

Also, there's an article out about "Census" faking the unemployment numbers right before the 2012 election, taking them from 8.2% down to 7.8%, making it seem the economy was doing better than it was.

This administration rivals raw sewage. Have they said or done anything with veracity???

It's an albatross necklace adorning every democrat in DC. It's a big fat lie collection, and more unpopular than ever.

You'll probably get your cancellation notice next year along with 100 million other Americans...right before the 2014 mid-term elections.

There's already parts of the ACA people are thrilled with such as keeping your children on your plan until they are 26. People with pre-existing conditions will be happy, people who have hit their caps will be happy, people in dangerous occupations who can't get insured will be happy. We knew the plan would need adjusting, again I say I know the GOP expected perfection immediately.

We can unplug it, just post the link to the alternative. Some I've seen for the GOP involve vouchers that won't cover costs enough and tax credits, big help for those in the lower brackets who pay no tax.

"Poll: Young Voters Abandoning Obama In Droves, Approval Rating Down To Only 36%…"

The Department of Justice has an Antitrust Division. How hypocritical is that? The monopoly known as the Federal Government needs to be broken up.

We are stuck with this thing and, because it's implementation been completely botched, we are all going to feel the pain for a much longer period than even the administration hoped for.

They just didn't do anything right on this one.
