    The people here who are supporting Obamacare are supporting it because they have no idea what is in that program, are thinking only with their hearts, and have received marching orders from the liberal elites. These same pro Obamacare supporters wouldn't be so positive if a Conservative govt. dictated legislation created behind closed does and implemented almost solely with one party support. Interesting how all these so called individual rights people don't seem to have any problem with a massive Central govt. dictating the terms of a healthcare program that will impact their lives in their individual community. Just goes to show how many have been brainwashed by a failed ideology.

    Indeed - but when did this thread turn into one about Biden?

    He got to talk about why he believes the ACA sucks for 23 hours, and we are in turn all talking about it today. The procedural vote was set for 1pm today regardless of what transpired since ~2pm yesterday, and the cloture vote will happen on Saturday.

    That was a big deal. It proved that millions of American voters were capable of smarting up. With the damage Obama has done and is doing, there is at least hope that many more voters will continue to smartin' up.

    Sorry - losers are losers. Perhaps you forget that fewer people voted for the Republican candidate too, or is that just something you file away as too hard to rationalize? Maybe if so many idiotic loser candidates hadn't been primaried into winnable Senate races by fools, more honest, hardworking, reasonable Republicans would have come to the polls in those states and helped get Romney elected. The fact that Obama, the most incompetent dolt to sit in the Oval Office in my lifetime, was reelected after all the evidence provided in his first four years tells any sane person that Republicans accomplished nothing positive in the 2012 elections and it's crazy to pretend they did.

    Now THATS what I call living in an alternate reality!!
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Ted got his moment. Good for him. McConnell only allowed him to do so because he knew it wouldn't pass the way it was, so let your guy have his fun, get his point out there and move on.

    Actually, I d modify that a not:

    His hate for Obama is greater than his love for the welfare of the nation. That's the modern day conservative...
