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

It has only exacerbated that which it was billed and sold to solve. We didn't buy it though. It was shoved down our neck without a single Republicans vote. Why was there not a single Republican vote? Because it's the biggest Gov. over-reaching pile of crap in history.

The Gov. controls way too much of our lives already. It needs to get back in it's box. The box built for it by the Constitution. It needs to be shoved back in that box, and the only ones who can do that are the people. I've got my shoving shoes on. You should take off your butt kissing hat, don a pair, grow a pair, and start shoving too.

You can shove now, or get crushed later. I prefer being an individual lion, not a collective sheep. Stop chewing on grass and help me subdue Fedzilla, before he swallows you whole.

The Gov. already knows more than enough about me through my tax records, social security card, and birth certificate. They can trace my every keystroke, e-mail and search entry. Do they really need my medical records too? Should they also have the ability to decide what healthcare procedures I have and which ones I can't have? I don't think they should.

I don't think they should engulf a sixth of the entire economy either, controlling the whole shebang. How much can people be manipulated in their behaviors if one behemoth, impossible to satiate, Gov. controls everything? A lot. I don't want to be told what to do, what to eat and how to live. Do you?

And what about the 30 million people who will still remain uncovered for the next 20 years according to the CBO? There will never be less than 30 million who remain uninsured. How many are there now? Wasn't this thing supposed to solve that? It was supposed to solve a lot of things.

And what important legislation is the Republican house pushing before summer recess? Trying to repeal obamacare for the 40th time.

Why don't people think that health care should be available and affordable for everyone?

In Michigan, you will be able to sign up for your new plans in October. Check it out.

I really wish people would stop spreading these DRUDGE/LIMBAUGH/BECK sensationalist lies and actually look at how Obamacare might benefit their families.

In Michigan, I was paying $600/month for my family's insurance, and that was a $10000 deductible. Under the Affordable Care Act, I will be paying less than half of that, for a $1000 deductible (the larger deductible are not allowed). I fail to see how I am being taken advantage of. Thank you.

"PLEASE see the beast in its true form and the havoc it is causing our people" NOBO, this is complete nonsense. The Affordable Care Act has already been saving my family big money, not causing havoc. I have gotten two large refunds because my insurance spends more than 20% on administration. The government didn't pay, the insurance company did. Also, my future care as a self-employed person is going to be much more affordable than it was. If you want the facts, go to michigan.gov.hicap. instead of spreading innuendo and lies, please. Then, we can debate the FACTS.

I don't like being called a cracker. There are too many types of crackers for all us Caucasians to be lumped in. there are: Saltine Gram Those little yellow fish-shaped things Animal (though could be a cookie in disguise) Matzo and who knows what else. The term is too generic and therefore must be taken as a pejorative. A pejorative directed at a group of people is raciest.

"'ObamaCare' works as intended, bringing health care to the masses of Americans who would not be covered elsewise." -Norm.

Norm, The patient Protection Affordable Care Act really doesn’t work and it is bankrupting the nation and lowering the nations' healthcare standards. Physicians are running out the door as fast as they can. Look at the name and think about it . . . PLEASE see the beast in its true form and the havoc it is causing our people,

Charlie might be trying to show Starkist his good taste. He should realize by now that only good tasting tuna get to be Starkist...which, when mixed with mayo and diced pickles, tastes great on a cracker.

Is Dr. Ben Carson, the famous and brilliant black brain surgeon a cracker too?

Are Allen West and Tim Scott crackers too? How about Mia Love or Herman Cain, Alan Keyes, Condoleeza Rice, Clarence Thomas, Frederick Douglass, Alveda King, Armstrong Williams, JC Watts, Thomas Sowell, Larry Elder, Lynn Swann, Stephen L. Carter, T.D Jakes, Ward Connerly, or Martin Luther King? All crackers?

And does saying the word cracker add anything to the national "hurdling towards totalitarianism" debate?

Ok, here's a compound word for you: "Commie Cracker".

I don't hear any laughing. I hear an awful lot of people complaining about Obamacare though. Including Unions, both Public and Private. Why is your side ignoring the Unions?

So, you can hear what doesn't exist but can't hear what does exist? I suggest some psychiatric help.

Charlie Rangel called Tea Party members white crackers today. He also called Republicans terrorists. Now that is a strong case he's got there. Serious debate. Excellent argument.

Day-O, daaay-O. Daylight come and he need to go home.

Gonna have to write some new lyrics for the old song "Johnny Angel", and call it Charlie Rangel. I'll try to make it as respectful as I can...ooops, my head just fell off. I'll simply replace it with a fresh pack of saltines, while trying to beat back the overwhelming urge to dip it in a bowl of clam chowder.

In 31 states in America, a rapist can sue their victim for child custody should a pregnancy occur. Despite Todd Akin and his "shut that whole thing down" gynecolican comment, this is the type of legislation the GOP so gleefully passes. Not a job in the whole of GOP nonsense.
