    The problem has never been "liberal policies". The problem has been Harry Reid and only Harry Reid.

    ACA is a liberal policy and that is a problem. Bailing out the Unions are liberal policies and those are a problem, Wealth redistribution and class warfare are liberal policies and those are problems. Obama's results are a disaster as are all Progressive policies because they destroy individual incentive

    Didn't you get the memo?

    The public is only smart when they vote republican agendas.

    No, then they'll be stupid again.

    Anyone who has observed politics from a historical perspective knows that the political pendulum is forever swinging from the left to the right. Surely, the democrats will take it back. Then the republicans. Then the democrats. Then the republicans. Rinse and repeat.

    The right will continue to whine when their side loses. And so will the left. It's the American way. We are a nation of whiners. That is one thing both sides have very much in common.
    Great summation. It's been this way for years and it will stay this way.

    The GOP was dead after Nixon. No wait! They're back. The Dems were dead after Carter. No wait! They're back! The GOP was dead after HW Bush. No, back they come! On and on it goes, around and around.

    The smoke-and-mirror posturing and blatant lies caught up with them, and now they're paying the price.

    Republicans were just awarded the task of shredding the ACA in its ridiculous form, and destroying Obama's attempt to rig American politics for the foreseeable future.
    37% turnout of register voters in this past election does not qualify as any referendum against ACA. If you guys try to f*** with it, you can kiss the senate and the white house good bye in 2016.

    I personally hope you guys will get too cocky and over reach.

    Based upon the last election looks to me like the American voter is waking up. Wonder why he still has a 41% JAR
    From the conservative Forbes:

    So, if you are all about the politics of being anti-Obamacare, you’ll want to simply pretend you never read this article as any rational individual will find it hard to continue to terrify the nation with predictions of fewer policies, smaller competition, and double-digit increases in premium rates.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Doesn't look like we'll have to since it has serious legal flaws soon to be challenged.

    Republicans will be smart to repeal it without repealing it. Defund it, rebuild it to what it should have been in the first place, then the catastrophe it's been goes away.

    I've been around politics not really all that long. Obama's election in 2008 was probably the first I really paid some attention to, yet in that pretty short time I've learned that "waves" like what happened on Tuesday swing back and forth. I remember people predicting the end of the GOP after the 2008 election and now I see the same kinds predictions about the Democrats. It's always easier to be the party that can claim they have no responsibility for whatever's going on that has people pissed off.

    Predictions aren't strong suits of anyone these days as they never seem to come close to the actual results. Obamacare is a disaster and at least one of Obama's architects is finally telling the truth, a truth we tried to tell you when you supported the program. Amazing isn't it how subsidies never cost anyone of importance in your world?
