    Problem is people like you read the headlines and by the rhetoric, there are 6 million uninsured people in TX much less than those in California but the reality is of those 6 million more than half are eligible for Medicaid but didn't sign up. More are able but choose not to participate in plans available or even company plans. Guess that reality escapes you

    One thing we know for sure about your "statistics" is that we must not accept them at face value (see your false presentation of debt accumulated by presidents). Where'd you get this latest laugher?
    While we're waiting for you, here's an actually accounting of % uninsured by state (2013 data):

    Health Insurance Coverage of the Total Population | The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation

    CA at 15%, TX at 20%. Neither one has anything to brag about but TX and NV tie for the worst out of all 50 states.

Liberalism is a failure, total and complete. Your passion for it says a lot about you
    Even the right wing CATO institute believes Bush is responsible for much of the 2009 deficit, it is only the most radical rightwingers like you that defend Bush far beyond normal limits. Even still it takes real balls to ignore the massive drop in revenues from the economic collapse and just blindly claim that Obama somehow spent those extra trillions. Obama has cut the deficit in half while recovering us from the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

    As stated, I have posted the link to the debt by day, you ignored it and made up your own numbers. Now you post Kaiser numbers which really are meaningless. First 15% of the entitlement state of California creates more than a million more Californians uninsured but the real issue is you don't breakdown the numbers to see why they are so high. That is headline reading and is what people like you do. Name for me a successful Progressive country in the world today and define success? Yours seem to be on how much the people get FROM their govt. and not the opportunities to create personal wealth from that govt.

    Obama averages much higher deficits than Bush. Only a few hundred billion from 2009 can be attributed to Obama. Obama signed 9 of the 12 spending bills for 2009, but not the huge ones.

    Great term - LIBERTOONIANISM - I am officially stealing that.

    All I want the person to do is offer an explanation as to how the idea of CONSENT has any relevance to the health care law.

    Sadly, they would rather engage is silly tactics than engage in debate.

    post 328 offers NO explanation from you in any way shape or from telling us about why you introduced the idea of CONSENT into the discussion.

    There you go again, you don't inherit deficit you inherit debt. Further Obama did cut the deficits in half after creating record high deficits and they still today are at historically high numbers.

    Can you explain to me how the financial crisis affected you and your family? If you didn't own a home you didn't suffer any paper loss. What was the misery index when Obama took office?

    What I find from you is continued support for failure based upon your inability to accept liberalism being a failure. You buy what the left tells you and do no research to verify the rhetoric. Do you think tax cuts are an expense to the federal govt? Do you think the 842 billion dollar stimulus created jobs, verifiable numbers from non partisan sites? Show the chart on those numbers?

    Stop letting liberalism make a fool out of you and stop making Gruber look brilliant.

    And then telling me it was a legal question. You got it, turbo.

    I never used the term LEGALLY or said it was a LEGAL QUESTION. That was your dishonest attempt to create a hidden-hole in which you thought you might be able to escape from the request to explain what YOU THOUGHT the idea of CONSENT had to do with a government health care program.

    All I am asking you - all I have ever asked you to do - of to offer YOUR own explanation as to what your introduction of the word CONSENT has to do with the health care program.

    Can you do so?
