    "Lied like dogs"? No. I think they should campaign on the fact that the majority of Americans actually agree with the majority of key provisions in the ACA.

    How do they escape the reality that the people who crafted the bill relied on the, "stupidity of The American People", to get the bill passed? How do they shake off the fact that the people were lied to? And, why are you defending this kind of dishonesty? Are you in agreement with this clown?

    Last checked we have a **** load of Democrats and Republicans rotating in in-and-out of offices.

    All I can say is people outside the US do not really understand the American culture or were we come from. They don't understand why we hold our freedom so dear, built on the blood of patriots, not government.

    I am a little ****ed up, but this does not change why we love our freedoms and those who would sell it to the highest bidder need to be shot as traitors.
    Well said! And our government left us behind a long time ago. It isn't just for money though. It's for power. It's for adoration. It's like watching girls campaign for homecoming queen. I often think the founding fathers must be rolling in their graves at what's happened.

    Worse are the lying politicians and the voters who will continue to support them.

    I don't know how a country can be stupid--that word describes individual people. And in any case, there are a hell of a lot of brilliant people in the United States.

    What? You didn't even know what those 'key provisions" were, and likely still don't.
