    Which only goes to show that the government is incapable of long-term planning, and thus should never have been allowed to try it's hand at any.

    All the people in charge are forced to think in terms of reelections, and everything else is subordinate to that. Thus, so long as it gets them re-elected, it's good. Even if it's bad 2 decades later.

    The GOP has a had a few good days with the polls..
    The GOP policy of not insuring 40 some million people who are uninsured continues..
    The House simply voted to kill ACA again today, with 3 dozen vulnerable Dems..

    Folks like McCain have marginalized themselves... they are just the buffers which the other team uses to pass these things on to the American people... we needed someone to stand up finally, to say, "STOP!!!" ...to risk a little, to draw a REAL line in the sand... to actually start the battle...not just appease.
    I don't know if that will win an election, but it sure as hell is how things need to be.

    We have been diminished as individuals by this unconstitutional tyrannical act. People with their hands out are always grateful to politicians who will force their neighbors to pay for the things the takers want.

    What we all should do, every one of us is cancel our insurance policies. We should arrange with doctors where we live to see us for a reasonable cash payment. No more insurance. No more government. No more crony capitalism.

    Not as much as Obama paid to build the most expensive website in the world, that didn't even work. And guess what he's still spending millions, to try and fix it. All at the tax payers expense.

    You asked a question. I answered. That's the reason this site exists. I'm not a passer by.

    Welcome to electoral hell. If McAulife winning does nothing else, it should, at the very least, show you you're there.
    If the voters in Virginia want to drive out the achievers who can move I say let them. Virginia will soon match Detroit for its population growth, promised government services, taxes and unmatched misery.

    We must win the Article V fight in 2/3rds of the States. But in the meantime arm up.

    In Lt. Governor Bill Bolling, Repubs had a potential candidate who would have beaten McAuliffe 60% - 40%.
