    You will never find a Conservative supporting Obamacare or anything like it nationally. If your state wants to implement universal healthcare then go for it. That isn't what Obamacare does

    Not a shock since he can appeal to virtually every faction of the Republican base.
    Governor Perry is a formidable candidate. He's not a lightweight along the lines of a Cain, Pawlenty, or Santorum. He has an established record from having governed, demontrated fundraising capacity, and an ability to articulate positions on the issues (whether one agrees or disagrees with his ideas is a separate matter). Having said that, much can change between now and the primary season.

    In fact, as Sangha adverts to, "Obamacare" is essentially derived from the national health care plan that Republicans proposed as an alternative to Hillarycare. It was written in conjunction with the conservative Heritage Foundation. It's also nearly identical to Romneycare, as Obama and the Dems relied heavily on the same health care policy expert that Romney used.

    Great spin, but in case you missed it Clinton lost the Congress in part because of Hillarycare and of course due to the tax increases. Noticed that you didn't respond to my post about conservatives wanting you to make as much money as you can but liberals rely on dependence. I know this is very hard for you to understand but Romneycare is a state program, Obamacare forces all Americans to have healthcare. States have that right, the Federal Govt. doesn't. That will be proven unconstitutional

    Not spin -- facts. And I did answer your post about Republicans loving rich people. You lie a lot about people not answering your posts.

    Republicans want you to become rich but I can see why that will never happen.

    Republicans don't control the Senate or the WH yet. Interesting how you blame Repubicans for you being less rich? Liberals always do that, blame someone else for their own shortcomings and failures.
