    Nothing new here, anyone who could see through the Bull Shit knew he was lying out his ass, and still is.

    This should be the first order of business that the Rs take up in Jan. Repeal this junk bill. This bill never was vested. The press threw softballs for o and never did any fact checking.

    That's not possible since the votes aren't there to override a veto. The House can refuse to fund it though.

    If the House does in fact go Republican, then many things can be de-funded. Obamacare will be the first.

    It will be interesting to see if the Big 0's approach is still here's my program, now go F yourselves. One wonders if he even knows how to negotiate a comprimise. There's been no evidence of that talent to date.

    No, he will not be able to work with a Speaker Boehner or Senate Majority Leader DeMint. He has spent 2 years demonizing them. In his speech in Ohio he mentioned Boehner more than anyone else, not favorably of course.
    Everyone knew the numbers for Obamacare were a lie. Even the people voting for it. They were told it would all work out and Americans would love "free health care."
    If you think it's expensive now, wait until it's free.

    the healthcare bill should be repealed, i think, until we know what's in it.
    the bigger the government the better, i think...
    it would be great if there were a big swap. everyone one who is not in the government now should become the government. conversely, everyone who is in the government now, become the rest of the country. i know this sounds like an ambitious plan, but, it could provide hope and change for promoting welfare and lower taxes. it could really work, i think, this is only my second post

    If the Republicans do regain some power i think repealing parts of the Health Care debacle should be their #1 priority. They should at the very least repeal the mandatory coverage aspect. Fining and possibly imprisoning fellow Americans for not having health insurance is just plain Un-American. They gotta win some power back first though. So get out and vote.
