    I snipped it because anyone who votes has been duped by politicians. You think because you vote GOP that you are not being duped? Are you kidding me?

    Yes, the least he can do is break the law.

    When did I say I vote GOP? I've voted for many Democrats as well. I vote for the candidate who doesn't dupe me because I don't vote for someone because I think he "cares about me!" or he "wants to help my family get healthcare" or "he wants me to get a good job" or he's going to bring "hope and change" and do it "outside the Washington way" or because she promises to "make my concerns her number one priority", and so on. I vote for the politician who is most likely to stay the hell out of my life. Politicians don't make our lives better.

    Those idiot voters are in both parties. You for some reason are very defensive about blanket words I made.

    The people who voted because of the ACA and because they bought into the crap like "$2500 premium reduction" and "cheap care all around" were stupid.

    You wouldn't be referring to people who support what Kamikaze Kruz (WSJ) is doing would you.

    From the GOP politicians and spinners I'm watching on FOX and through their direct quotes on other networks,
    Kruz has much more to worry about from his own party.

    DEM pols certainly need to remain quiet.

    Btw, L. Graham is coming right up on Wolf about Bergdahl .

    Cruz put himself in this paradoxical box, not liberals.
    No, he didn't. No matter what choice he made liberals would have been pissed off about it and bitched about it endlessly. Oh, and every plan is ACA. Thanks for not paying attention.

    He doesn't have to break the law. He can get private insurance, which is only impacted by the regulatory aspect of the ACA. Here's another option: Cruz can get private insurance and simply not use it out of spite.

    C. Break the law and pay a fine.

    Option A has him getting insurance that's connected to the ACA. Option B has him getting insurance that's connected to the ACA. Option C is him breaking the law.

    Perhaps I'm missing something, but please tell me what option he has that:

    1. Gets him insurance
    2. Does not interact with the ACA
    3. Does not break the law
    COBRA and private are not ACA. I have employer HI and that has nothing to do with ACA. I don't know where you are coming up with this.

    Anyway he shut down the government. The GOP House has voted to repeal ACA about a million times. I don't give a rats ass about the costs, the subsidies, any of that. Just on principle he should have used another option. The man is not poor, he is highly educated. He can't be getting in bed with something that he and others have said will be the ruin of this country. He had other options.

    Every last plan falls under the law. Seriously, do you even listen to yourself?

    Which ones? You're clearly a conservative, and agree with conservative and Republican ideology on like 98% of issues. I'm curious which Dem you voted for.
