    Yeah, I head that on CNN in my car picking up one of the grandkids. I have to agree with him, people can hem and haw around if they want, but it was a promise. But I wonder about his his motive his, he always has/had one. Could it be that he knows if Hillary wins in 2016 she will own Obamacare and he is trying to help her put some distance between what has been one heck of a screw-up roll out.

    Don't get me wrong, I would welcome Bill back in a heartbeat as president. I do think we ought to do away with that 22nd Amendment.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Nope, you are correct... But there was no provision that stated that the insurance companies could not change their coverage to meet the standard of the ACA. So the good business people saw an angle to make more money, upped the coverage and no longer offered the older, existing plans.

    I wrote letters to my Congressmen (two, I own homes in two districts...) and my senators last year with this same concern. There is no doubt in my mind that the Dem leadership knew it would happen. I do not understand how that question was not asked by the Repubs in a very public way. They were too busy spouting "death panel" and other hyperbole.

    And so the fact they were 100% correct doesn't matter as long as it comes from a source you don't like - way to open your mind. I'm curious now that your beloved MSNBC has aired it - do you now believe or is that a conspiracy too?

    Note #25 on page 25. It would appear they tried but failed...?

    Well, a big "atta boy" to Cliff Stearns! And of course, the Speaker never brought it to committee...............

    I still don't understand why a bigger deal was not made about this.... My only guess is that the GOP knew it would happen and let it go so that they could point fingers and say "you lie!!!"

    You have to know that things are really looking bad for Obama, when even Bill Clinton finds himself in a position to credibly take him to task over matters of honor and commitment.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    My guess is they saw the writing on the wall. After trying to get ~120 amendments (review them all as some are quite interesting considering the current situation) and failing...you can only hit your head against the wall so many times!

    Further consider Reid allowed 161 amendments to be added in the Senate version which passed first (to avoid the filibuster potential after the seating of Scott Brown in 2010). This was presumably to garner at least some GOP support but got none. Then once it got to the House Reid knew Nancy would eliminate ALL these...which she did. Ultimately the GOP had NO cards to play in this game...until now...?

    The source requires anyone interested in debate to double-check basic facts. It introduces the OP as "hello, I'll use Alex Jones as a source, and I'd like to discuss blahblah". CT blogs, RT, PressTV, Cuban and Venezuelan regime media arms as citation, great. Someone might as well open with "On Coast to Coast AM, I heard..." Even if the article includes context and is reported without blatant slant, the source says "cite anything" for evidence as a standard for the debate.


    ps. My "beloved" msnbc? I haven't owned a TV in ~15 years and cannot imagine going to such a fringe website. I couldn't name 2 people featured on that channel.

    I just read your post on WJC and I like it..However, I like the next one by chiefgator also..Clearly, factors beyond BHO's control were at work, TNTN..Clinton gives him cover while the GOP was smart not to quack lie, since it wasn't..I want to see the brilliant bill the GOP House gives us .
