The thing I LOVE about what's happening with Obamacare is the Democrats who supported it, campaigned for it, and voted for those who passed it are now getting bit in the butt by it. Democrat Obama worshippers are now having their plans cancelled, rates doubling and tripling. There's only 4 words we Conservatives have to say about the matter --- WE TOLD YOU SO.

I AM GOING TO PUT THIS IN ALL CAPS SINCE DUMBOCRATS DONT SEEM TO GET IT. IT'S REAL SIMPLE, IF OBIMBO CARE IS SO GREAT THEN WHY ARE NONE OF THE POLITICANS ON IT?? ALSO IF ALL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT IT THEN LET US VOTE ON IT SINCE WE ARE PAYING FOR IT, IT WOULD BE DEFEATED !!

My mother in law had quadruple by pass at Cleveland Clinic without insurance and never received a bill. Don't worry though, those horrible days are over. Now you won't have to worry about going to Cleveland Clinic since they decided to have nothing to do with the ACA.

How about this. Work hard all your life at a job that does not provide health insurance, have a heart attack then try to get insurance privately. So give it a rest please!!

Okay, so a liberal (reallytiredofit)here posts racially insensitive crap about the president and another liberal (defeatsb5)decides that it's evidence of racism among the right. You ignorant trolls are too ****ing funny.

I knew you would Stew, BUT, I'm glad you're joining me in wanting the Republicans to shut the government down and keep it down. By doing that it will become much easier to pass legislation after the shutdown ends. I sure will be happy, not too sure about you stew

Resister: seems you forget that over80% of the middle class has a corporate insurer. and no change for them. Like that poor woman on faux news that was so upset that she got "THE" letter. Neil Cavuto then told her that she could get a subsidy, and she would pay less. She didn't want a subsidy, she said. Cavuto almost fell out of his chair. Basicly she wanted to be on television!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So how are you going to defund obamacare? It's all ready funded and you would need a Republican government, house, senate and president so far you have 1 and your not getting another, so get ready for obamacare and another crushing defeat for the RIGHT. that's Sb 5 beating, 2012 pres. election, and the OBAMACARE mandate in the SCOTUS.

"more of that uppity crap from this president"

Uppity crap?

That kind of language is straight out of the ante-bellum South, and the system of American apartheid in play for n100 years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

"Uppity crap?"

Who are you? Bull Connor? George Wallace? Strom Thurmond?

"Uppity crap?" What? You can't stomach this Neeeeegro president's resolve?

"Uppity crap?" Seriously?

After january all the american people who pay for health ins will gladly support whatever gets their old healthcare plan back along with old affordable premium. You seem to forget the fact obama lied to the american people and what i have known since the bill passed is becoming known to everyone else.

Ramkisoon;

11 years as a state legislator in Illinois, that isn't much. He did nothing for us here. And when he went to DC, he promised us to fill out his first term, which he lied about (act surprised). He has had countless Pinocchio moments since.

In fact they don't have a hair on their****unless they shut the whole ball of wax down from mid January all the way to the November elections. There would be no better way to show the American people that the GOP stands on principal than a good old 10 month shutdown.

@Ramkisoon: Go Go! Go! This writer failed to realize that the senate has a VOTE. and because they did not agree with the house. The house then decided to try and ruin this country.

I know & respect Dan but respectfully disagree. 18th century politics can't run 21st century America, times are so different that the Constitution needs changed. Any document in agreement with slavery should be trashed!

We live in a very different world now with people suffering in ways that render them helpless. There must be a safety net for the poor. The distance between rich & poor needs narrowing.

As long as Repubs remain out of touch with 21st century mentality they will continue to lose elections. Your argument is valid Dan but unfortunately it's out of touch with the needs & mentality of 21st century America...

I would not classify President Obama's 11 years experience as a Legislator as inexperienced.
