    No self respecting Republican would be caught dead praising Obamacare, but they don't seem to have a problem with the ACA.


    Poll: Republicans hate ‘Obamacare,’ but like most of what it does - The Washington Post
    The Wash. Post is anti conservative. They love 0bama's policies.
    Catch me if you can.

    Which, even if true, has nothing to do with the poll. Try again.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Really, because I thought they were more right leaning after they supported GWBush's policy to invade Iraq.

    "...On March 26, 2007, Chris Matthews said on his television program, "Well, The Washington Post is not the liberal newspaper it was, Congressman, let me tell you. I have been reading it for years and it is a neocon newspaper".[57] It has regularly published an ideological mixture of op-ed columnists, some of them left-leaning (including E.J. Dionne, Greg Sargent, and Eugene Robinson), and many on the right (including George Will, Marc Thiessen, Robert Kagan, Robert Samuelson, Michael Gerson and Charles Krauthammer).

    But then, that doesn't have anything to do with what we were discussing, does it?

    Let me see... Obama + Bush = Liberals.



    Bush was not a TRUE conservative, he ran as a conservative in name only, just like Bernie Sanders, he is not an Independent he is a Socialists.

    And the GOP has been completely powerless to change that?

    Poor guys.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Revisonist history or just your opinion?

    Looks like a fact to me regarding Sanders

    Bernie Sanders emerges as top Hillary Clinton challenger as liberal agenda resonates - Washington Times

    Democratic Party officials and liberal activists credited the rise of Mr. Sanders, a Vermont independent who proudly labels himself a socialist, to his forceful appeal for a grass-roots movement to fight Wall Street, income inequality, college debt and climate change

    Also regarding Bush is it fact or fiction that a Democrat Controlled Senate with major control of the Senate Oversight and intelligence Committee authorized the Iraq War based upon the same information that Bush had?

    With socialists in control of the Democrat Party, highly unlikely. What is sad is how you run from the question posed because you really do know the answer

    Funny. The deductible I got is 1000, and I have a max out of payment for the year to be 6K.

    That means, any medical expenses over 6K for the entire year, gets paid for 100%


    Friend of mine had a heart attack last year. His hospital bills were way more than that. Because of that, he did not become bankrupt.
    Knee-jerk anti-government sentiment is not a viable political philosophy.

    Not really. Remember all those points you got crushed on and promptly ignored earlier?

    Healthcare is a common good. I benefit from you having good health, and vice versa. It is common sense that we set up an appropriate mechanism to ensure we have optimal health which leads to optimal productivity.

    I'm not in the 1%....but probably in the 5% and possibly in the 2%, and I owe my success to the hundreds of healthy people who are productive and can funnel their money to me eventually, rather than being ill.

    The difference between you and me is that I understand that, while you are bound and determined to stay willfully ignorant of that fact.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
