    I suppose the most accurate way to say what he meant was "There is nothing in the new law that prevents you from keeping your current coverage." That much is true.

    Since this was SO foreseeable, why didn't the GOP run on this in 2012? This would have been a much better pitch than Mitt "Not Obama" Romney's pronouncements from whatever planet he lives on.

    My point is that if the GOP's ideas are so much better, why can't they sell them to the electorate?

    Because under the GOP you may actually have to work for somethings.

    They didn't even pitch it that way during the election. That was the rationalization after the election, helped along with Romney's divisive "47%" comment.

    It was only divisive to the stupid that couldnt understand what he meant.
    Its also hard to pitch working for something when the other side is going to give it to you for free.

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    That's my point. If they can't sell smart ideas to stupid people, they don't deserve to hold office.

    My position is that they didn't really have any smart ideas to begin with. Crapping on the other guy's idea doesn't count.

    How would I know? They appear to be too busy insulting me to try to convince me.

    There is stupid, then there is savvy. Savvy people that have been gaming the system and getting free stuff for decades know when to perk their ears up and hear what they need to.

    Obama is the most prolific liar I've ever seen in my life.

    I guess it's just tough to compete with that level of lying. GOP is saying that they'll create jobs, and you have Obama saying you can keep your plan (lie), your doctor (lie), he'll cut your costs by $2500 (lie), etc...

    If I had a clock that moved the second hand every time Obama told a lie I could use it for a ceiling fan.
