    Just try to remember to hold republican accountable when they are feature as a "pants on fire" nominee. Whenever politfact calls out republicans for there lies, you guys always cries "liberal bias".

    At least we know in your world liberal bias means anything that is said negative about republicans.

    Partisans on both sides ALWAYS do this. That's why we're in the mess we're in.

    A majority of 18-to-24-year-olds now say they would recall Obama as president if they could. It is finally happening; young people who overwhelmingly supported Obama are now turning away from him in droves. The hope and change he promised never materialized, instead replaced with deteriorating conditions.

    You know this how? And since all those plans were authorized by the individual state commissioners, why weren't you after the state to cancel those years ago?

    I said "Obamacare" not "Obama". The only requirement pissing and moaning about the complaints against Obamacare achieves is the need of the left to repair the result of their fawning over this program and it's signature head.

    Read the news. Pretty common knowledge that under Obamacare those networks as you call them are shrinking.

    The word you missed in that last sentence was "anticipated". And you sound like one of the lucky few that still has coverage supplied by your employer. Let's see how long that lasts before you get dumped to the exchanges.

    So now you say it sucks but complain that others just aren't highlighting the correct sucky parts? Hilarious.

    I agree with you there. This is why I roll my eyes every time someone mentions impeachment. If a president is impeach for lying, then every president in history should be impeached.

    Lets look at a few

    Bush Sr. = Read my lips no new taxes
    Clinton = I did not sleep with that woman (Impeached)
    Bush Jr. = Iraq has WMDs
    Obama = You can keep your insurance if you like it.

    Maybe people don't understand the purpose of the impeachment process.


    Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution says, "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

    It's irrelevant. Most health plans in the US sucked before Obamacare, so very few actually wanted to keep an existing health plan.

    Of couse, Obamacare will also suck, but that's also irrelevant.

    If that were even remotely true Obama would never had to tell and retell the lie to begin with.

    The American automobile industry has come roaring back…So now I want to say what we did with the auto industry, we can do it in manufacturing across America.
