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

"If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period" (Obama)

"If you like your health insurance, you can keep it. Period" (Obama)

Everything Obama said about this program was a lie. Not one of you in 3 years has been able to mention a single phrase he used to sell it, which was true. That is quite telling. The truth is spilling out though, all over, and it's very, very, messy, causing much disillusionment out there.

Across the country, 105 groups were awarded a total of $67 million in so-called navigator grants, ranging from the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida and AIDS Alabama, Inc. to the Greater Phoenix Urban League and the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County."

"Obamacare National Marketing Campaign to Cost Nearly $700 Million." (Real Clear Politics)

"The campaign won't come cheap: The total amount to be spent nationally on publicity, marketing and advertising will be at least $684 million, according to data compiled The Associated Press from federal and state sources."

Keep in mind. The above is being done with the people's tax dollars. The above is where you'll find the disinformation the taxpaying citizens are paying for. Not to mention the free publicity Obama always gets from the his MSM cheerleading squad in the Press.

"Obama looking to Hollywood to help promote ObamaCare" (Fox News)

"TV Networks Will Be Asked to Boost ObamaCare In Plots of Their Top Shows" (Newsbusters)

"Republicans on the Senate health committee are wondering why the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is promoting ObamaCare to the public.

"In a letter to FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, GOP senators asked her to provide legal justification for email alerts encouraging people to sign up for the law's new insurance exchanges." (The Hill)

"NEW YORK, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Planned Parenthood will get federal funds to help Americans enroll in insurance via President Barack Obama's healthcare program, U.S. officials said on Thursday, drawing fire from critics who oppose contraception and abortion in such coverage.

“Since the law’s passage in March 2010, critics have spent a total of about $400 million on television ads that refer to it, according to a new analysis by the Campaign Media Analysis Group at Kantar Media, which tracks such spending. Supporters have spent less than a quarter of that — about $75 million — on ads that cast the law in a positive light, according to the analysis.” (Washington Post)

I haven't seen any of these ads, nor have a seen any disinformation. Plus, much of this was during the 2010 shellacking. Most of what I've seen are the actual busines owners, part timer headlines and news reports of same, Union heads moaning and complaining about it and such. I've also seen Government workers, including the head of the IRS say he didn't want to have receive his health coverage from it. At least one of it sponsors, a Senator, who is retiring, called it a trainwreck. Then there's this:

Duh, let's see, The Koch Brothers, Americans for Prosperity, according to the Campaign Media Analysis Group, about 400 Million dollars just for teevee ads, where MOST people get their 'information. NOW, I challenge YOU to read up on it and get back with me. The truth is out there, just get your head out of the sand.

Of the "hundreds of millions of dollars" you claim conservative groups are spending to spread disinformation about Obamacare, can you delineate a single dollar of that or a single message from those "conservative groups" to substantiate such a claim?

Insult me all you want Ok? You're certainly no stranger to it. You often condemn it within the same sentences where you exercise it. You don't recognize it in yourself, only in others. Insults from you run off me like water off of 57's back, so long as he first shaves and waxes it. (I suggest Turtle Wax.) Leave my wife out of it.

The main problem is that you don't debate anything. You never answer pointed or rounded questions. There is never any legitimate back and forth with you. You respond with unrelated one-liners or you change the subject completely. You are never able to substantiate anything, or acknowledge anything. So, since you are incapable of even engaging in argument, you will never win one.

I'll try once more: Of the "hundreds of millions of dollars" you claim conservative groups are spending to spread disinformation about Obamacare, can you delineate a single dollar of that or a single message from those "conservative groups" to substantiate such a

NO fight Mr. Anonymous. I want to see the face associated with the hateful bombast. YOU insult somebody YOU have never seen or talked to nearly EVERY post, so take offense if you must, but one thing YOU cannot hide, is YOU are crippled inside.

No 'flaming lib commies looking for social handouts', NOBO, you expose yourself with that comment about the Benishek love fest. Dissenting opinions are required in 'civil discourse'. The Affordable Care Act is working as intended, with some bumps that need 'paving'. ONE reason to dislike it, that is Health Insurance corporations make less money, and they are a powerful lobby.

NOBO, I welcome 'civil debate', but the clown shoe salesman insists on interjecting hateful comments, and I for one find his insults degrading. He got back, in spades, what he asked for by the mean spirited untrue statements aimed at my life, which is fulfilling, and relevant.

Rshrill, now you know how hurtful comments have consequences. YOU started this nonsense, which I warned you ahead of my ironic comments. YOU stated of me: " No, you simply failed...at everything. Life, love, business, theology, ideology...everything". That kind of unsubstantiated rhetoric demands of me a response. I responded equally hurtfully. HOW does it feel? Pretender.

norm..You hit the nail. Philanthropers like Carnige ruin lives to get rich so they can pretend altruism by buliding monuments to themselves and giving back a bit of what they took. The solid gold church that 'helps' the poor whom they extort money from.

If you'd like to go on a scavenger hunt to locate all of that "nothing" they've done, you need go no further than Harry Reid's pocket.

RS is a knowledgeable adult. If you speak to him as if he were as dumb as Normudflaps, you know, a no-information- voter, your words will Fall like so many leaves, only to be raked and burned. Consider them nothing but consumed ashes.

Sorry I missed the town hall meeting. Republicans are cancelling them all over because they have to answer why they've wasted taxpayer time and money voting 40 times trying to repeal Obamacare, also why they have done virtually nothing in almost three years. Are they holding out hope Cuban Canadian Ted Cruz will be their Savior?

Just got back from Evansville IN. What a change from 2008. Back then empty restaurants and hotels. This time, packed restaurants and I was lucky to find a room.

I see Meijer is looking to expand into Alpena. You better warn them RS how bad things are, they must not have gotten the message.
