    So lying of this magnitude, not just a little white lie, not a little lie to save someone's feeling, a big massive self-serving lie, by our political leaders is suddenly acceptable? Or is it acceptable only when it advances the liberal / progressive / Democrats agenda?
    No one likes to be called stupid.
    No one likes to be lied to.

    This may very well hang around the 2016 Democrat candidate's necks like a millstone, and frankly, it should.
    Bingo on the bolded part. Truth is liberalisms first victim.

Let's face it, the Republicans nationalized the election and for the most part ran against Obama. It is not that the Republicans put forth an agenda of their own like they did with the contract with America. They said if you are tired of Obama, vote for me.
    And, Obama is a Liberal. The Liberals over-reached bad when they secured the two branches.

    Guess who will still be President in 2016, that's right your messiah. So don't count your Senate seats before you have them.

    The Obama administration deliberately lied to the country to pass their liberal agenda Obamacare. It seems you are still asleep. There's your answer.

    Didnt know there was a direct vote on the ACA...
    But none the less about the "stupid part". Most people when told about the ACA's provisions they agree with them, but once you put say do you like "Obamacare" they say no... So who is stupid?
