    Yeah, he was paranoid as hell. And ruthless to people who got on his sh1t list. People think Obama is bad? He's a cub scout compared to how ruthless Nixon was.

    Re: Ted Cruz going on Obamacare

    The issue is pretty clear for me

    For some time now, Cruz and the right have been running their mouths about how awful it is that so many people lost their plans and were "forced" to buy a plan through the exchange

    Now, Cruz has lost his plan, and with all the choices available to a man as wealthy as he, he has determined that buying through an exchange and having his coverage subsidized is the best possible CHOICE he can make.

    When others do it, it's because they're being "forced" to do it. When Cruz does it, every right winger rushes to his defense to explain why he's so smart for making that CHOICE

    I really don't know why I'm responding to you if you aren't even going to read what I post.
    Just tell me, and I obviously am reading what you're saying, I'm responding to everything if it is quoted at me.

    Yeah...right before Obamacare.

    Right after the government screwed things up for decades and made things worse by shoving Obamacare down our throats...to fix what's screwed up.

    And now you want to make it worse by handing our whole healthcare industry over to the government. Now, that's just plain pathetic.

    How will it make it worse??? Look at the data posted and the quality of life of other countries with "government healthcare" that is clearly "ruining them" you talk about me not reading your posts..

    Some of us don't think it is moral behavior to force people to help others.

    What do you mean "forcing people" to help others? Explain, please, I don't understand, this just seems like a scare tactic based on paranoia to rally people against universal healthcare.
