    When have I ever said that I didn't believe one of their stories?

    I take what they report at face value, just as I do with stories from ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox, unless something surfaces that bring a certain story into question.

    That was an observation based on your posts and since I didn't send it as a pm, I would hardy call it "talking behind your back".

    I'm sorry if it offends you

    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    You know Grim, I'm quite convinced that those who can trouble-shoot what's wrong can trouble-shoot the fix, meaning you..
    Democrats did this with Medicaid part D with Bush, though they voted against it like Repubs did against ACA..
    If I had my way, every able person in this Nation would get the "Israeli" treatment to help their government .

    Again, all that has nothing to do with the topic of discussion, which is the CNN report that the WH is pressuring insurance companies not to publicly criticize Obamacare.

    If you have any evidence that this story has been fabricated, then by all means post it... If not, then I believe criticism is definitely in order.

    I can't fault the WH for trying this, and as such publicly denying any such pressure is going on. This is the keystone of Obama's two terms. Not only were the changes horrid, it was passed by Democrats only (I know, it's so shocking why the GOP dislike the bill...lol), the roll out was a mess, the website needed a full overhaul from the start, and now we find out tens of thousands have lost their insurance coverage that they had and liked, contrary to Obama knowing in 2010 about 50% of all people will lose their existing insurance while he continued to claim ad nauseum you can keep your plan and keep your doctor. Oh and almost forgot, State sign ups are seeing an overwhelming majority of people falling into medicaid, but lets wait for the score card early next year.

    If there was a better posterboy for clusterf*** by the Federal Government (possibly the Bay of Pigs but that's apples & oranges) I'm hard pressed to remember one.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Just because something is happening now that is bad does not mean that it wasn't bad 20 years ago either. Instead of trying to play lame GOTCHA! games (when you really don't) try actually addressing the issue at hand for once.
    Because it has become a favorite pass time of the right to nick pick everything this president does like he is the first to do any of these things. Look there are some things that I am not happy that Obama do and I'm not saying he shouldn't be criticize. But you have to admit that there is a lot of fake outrage from the other side because the current president doesn't have a "R" on his chest.


    This is the main reason I show no respect to the tea party. They should have been upset long before Obama got into office. You started seeing signups and outrage before Obama can finish the oath. If the movement would have begun during the Bush Administration then I would have had mad respect for them. But Now, they are nothing but mindless sheep shepard by the Koch Brothers.


    But that how the cycles go. You will see when the next republican president gets sworn in. The democrats are going to do the same thing and republican are going to point out "Well Obama did the same thing"

    It is just a stupid game that both sides play.
