    Amazing when another liberal gets caught saying in public what most liberal elite's actually think. Too bad good people continue to buy the liberal lies about spending in the name of compassion when the only compassion generated is to the liberal bureaucrats that run the program and create the dependence

Govt. created jobs don't generate a damn thing but dependence and debt.
    Actually, I'm with you on the 'government trickle down' argument.

    There's not only no need to have the current state of massive entitlements, and I find the current means based entitlement environment not only froth with fraud & disincentive, but highly destructive.

    Reigning-in entitlements, while closing loopholes in the tax system, along with providing incentive to repatriate overseas corporate money, would put us on solid budget footing.

    Actually, we are only need very little action to balance the current budget, and I'm at a loss to see why it isn't done!

    It was the liberals of the day who wanted to fight for independence, the conservative shop keepers not so much.

    Exactly but now only when the people THINK the same way and CHOOSE the same way as people like you want. With freedom of choice comes responsibility a term you don't seem to understand when it comes to others even though in your own personal life you have to accept that responsibility.

    You should understand there are people (human beings) who are destitute and unable to accept personal responsibility in this the richest nation on the face of the earth. It's immoral to let them stave and die. Conservatives are basically for themselves and noboby else. Now you are going to give me that line of crap where you will say conservatives donate more than liberals. Even if thats is true it not nearly enough.

    Changing plans from one year to the next is not unusual in the individual market. Churn has always been the name of the game there.

    It is unusual that your plan is made illegal.

    The ACA had a grandfather clause. If you wanted to stay in the plan you were in when it was signed, you (legally) could. Turns out lots of people didn't want to. Again, churn is the name of the game.

    Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
