    The sad thing is Romneycare is doing well in Mass and that was the blueprint for Obamacare. Go ahead keep making an ass out of yourself!
    Do you have any idea the number in the labor force in TX and how many are making Federal Minimum wage? You seem to believe that is a bad thing whereas I believe living off the taxpayers is a bad thing. You want badly to believe what liberals tell you but the reality is quite different. Why aren't you holding liberals to the same standards as you hold conservatives and why didn't you respond to my post on California minimum wages which have triple the number as TX.

    As for uninsured I listed a statement here about my employees that you ignored. Further I posted a question as to how many people eligible for insurance who CHOOSE not to participate are classified as not insured. That answer is easily found so don't you think you ought to find that answer before making a further fool of yourself? Is it your position that personal choice only matters when it comes to choosing to end the life of a fetus? Why aren't those who choose not to participate in insurance held to the same standard in your world?

    you think Romneycare is doing well in MA? How do you know that? Any idea what the costs are in MA? you think having insurance insures quality and service? IF MA is doing so well then why isn't this a state responsibility since state taxpayers pay for the uninsured not the Federal Taxpayer?

    Like all liberals it would be much better if you started thinking with the brain God gave you vs. only your heart

Why it was because of a Democrat Congress and Obama in two short years that gave us Obamacare. In the Senate, Republicans won four seats held by retiring Democrats and Republicans defeated two incumbent Democrats during the last mid-term election thanks to the efforts by the Tea Party. This was the largest number of Republican gains since the 1994 elections and also the first time since that election that Republicans successfully defended all of their own seats. So you obviously don't know what you are talking about.
    Number one, I never said all the Tea Party candidates elected were "big mouths" or problems. In fact, I admire many if not pretty much all of them because they have stuck to the principles by which they were elected and stuck to the wishes of the constituents in their districts who sent them to Washington. Not all of them by any stretch are big mouth fools and it's foolish of you to take my comments about one Senator and extrapolate that over the entire Tea Party contingent in congress.

    Number two, Republicans lost seats in the last election both in the House and in the Senate. Particularly, in the Senate, they lost multiple seats they should have won had they not primaried out viable candidates that had been proven winners and not primaried in unelectible buffoons in races where the Democrat candidate was easily defeatable. Missouri and the "preventable rape" ignoramous quickly comes to mind as an example.

    Finally, if you don't realize that since 1994 the Republicans actually gained and then lost control of the Senate you've got no business telling me I don't know what I'm talking about. But you continue to find pride in "losing by less" in the past election. You're probably one of those great Republican minds who talks glowingly about Obama winning less of the vote in 2012 than he did in 2008 as if that's somehow a great accomplishment.

    You want to see all the lefties really get in an uproar? Let him start at page one and read aloud the entire ACA....That'll get some ire....
    Honestly, I didn't see it as related to the ACA, but ok. He's being forced to eat something he doesn't want, but then...
    Say!
    I like green eggs and ham!
    I do!! I like them, Sam-I-am!
    And I would eat them in a boat!
    And I would eat them with a goat...
    And I will eat them in the rain.
    And in the dark. And on a train.
    And in a car. And in a tree.
    They are so good so good you see!

    So I will eat them in a box.
    And I will eat them with a fox.
    And I will eat them in a house.
    And I will eat them with a mouse.
    And I will eat them here and there.
    Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE!

    I do so like
    green eggs and ham!
    Thank you!
    Thank you,
    Sam-I-am
    He will then end up liking the ACA.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Cruz is the bigger 'threat' to good governance as he is sticking to the TP radical right position. Cruz is being talked up as a new leader for the GOP, I'll wager a shiny nickle he will be the New Messiah that will lead the GOP to the Promise Land.

    Can't say I've heard much about Rubio of late...
    Cruz has ZERO chance of being the Republican Presidential Nominee in my lifetime, let alone in 2016.

    If they'd have done that before it was passed, it might've prevented the **** storm that's about to befall us. At the very least, it would've affected the previous election.

    Do not put any absurdity beyond the reach of the new tea party driven GOP. Remember who ran as the VP candidate last time and the time before. We're talking weirdos.

    He hates Obama and doesn't really have another thought in his head. I.e., he's a thoroughly modern conservative.

    That's pretty much it.
