    Article is here.

    I'd still be fillibusting.

    At least it's not as pathetic as democrats running from Wisconsin to Illinois to avoid a quarum.... That was just pathetic...

    At least there were enough reps to proceed.

    So your answer is that Barack Obama has been lying when he says his ACA is UHC. Like I said ... and you agree ... he does lie... kudos to you for admitting it.

    Come on Moot, it is one thing to be politically disingenuous, another all together to put forth a situation that you know is built on a falsehood to smear....

    When Bush went around the country campaigning for the privatization of social security, what do you think he was doing? Picking his nose?
    Why all the campaigning now? I thought the law was passed, and signed?

    The only reason for Obama to be doing this now is because he knows how unpopular the law is, and doesn't want an uprising when the people actually are trapped by its implementation.

    He talks on the phone with Boehner all the time. But boo hoo Boehner can't control the house...and if he can't control the house then how can make any deals with the president?
    Look, I don't like Boehner either...We need Tom Delay back. But, Obama doesn't talk to anyone unless he thinks he can get political traction out of it...Let's not kid ourselves.

    You seem to miss the point that he wasn't ALLOWED to filibuster.. This the concept of a fake filibuster. What he did was just delay debate and screw his own party. Oh....and the US taxpayer, who will have to pay for this shutdown.
    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.

    No, what he did was actually call attention to the problems in the Obamacare bill, no debate was ever going to be allowed as Harry Reid controls the Senate Agenda. Doubt seriously that you have any idea what is in the bill and how it will affect you. Cruz made some great points especially as to who is being exempted from the bill including the Congress of the United States that created the bill. Why such loyalty to Obama?

    Actually, I understand the law quite well, given the enormous impact upon my livelihood and my 25 years of working in health care, a third of it primarily dealing with handling the fallout of uninsured/underserved patients.

    I'm less loyal to Obama than just aghast at the awfulness of today's GOP.

    Then if you spent that much time in the healthcare field you understand who pays the costs of the uninsured and it isn't the Federal Taxpayer thus why is it a Federal responsibility? Doesn't look to me like you understand the law at all nor why so many have been exempted. You fail to understand that all this law does is give bureaucrats more money to spend and more control. It might create access but does nothing to lower costs and improve quality.

    You call the GOP awful, based upon what? the results show Obama to be awful but that isn't an issue with many who buy the rhetoric and ignore the results. Please explain to us all please the credible sites that show Obama economic results to be successful? Show me one economic prediction made by Obama that has been accurate?

    You want badly to believe what you are told because you think with your heart and not your brain.
