    It depends on your point of view. I'm certain the democrats pushed Obamacare through in the middle of night simply because it is so bad. That way they can arrive on white horses and save the day by replacing it with a single payer system. They would never have gotten the single payer system even in the middle of the night. Obamacare is a stepping stone so, for the democrats, it was a brilliant move.

    Repeating your freakish allegation once it's been pointed out that the facts are otherwise doesn't make you look smarter. Just the opposite.

    Substitute "contradicts" instead of "reinforces" and you might be groping toward reality.

    From my experience, Libertarians are almost always extremely smart and well educated. Sometimes even gifted.
    The problem with Libertarians is similar to the problem with Republicans. They lack empathy.
    Generally I view Libertarians as Tea-Baggers with a brain. But a powerful brain often leads to a disconnect with reality.
    A disconnect with reality in combination with the lack of empathy can be dangerous.

    I disagree, one of the votes they always depend on is unions, those with cadillac plans got screwed in this deal and they will not support democrats in the future

    Its not that we lack empathy, its that we are guided by principle, Reason is emotions master, not the other way around.

    They're pseudo-intellectuals at best.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
