    Dickie forgets it was the Teafucks that were saying most of the dumb things.

    In other words, they weren't told to pretend, to lie, to obfuscate, to hide their true selves in order to win votes.

    Typical Republican. Do, or say, ANYTHING IT TAKES to con people out of their votes.

    Wrap your little heads around this one, Teatards.

    Think about it and then reexamine your beliefs.

    As soon as the constitution spells out the right to be cared for when you're sick, I'll be all about it.

    There’s little a political entity can do to control everything its candidates say; it does have control over how it responds to what is said, however, and in that the GOP failed.

    Republicans already have a cure for illness. It's called "death". We saw it during the debates.

    GENERAL WELFARE CLAUSE

    The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence[note 1] and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;


    The constitution doesn't spell out the design of the Washington Monument or Congressional Procedure, C-Span, EPA, Air Force One, CIA, Security Clearances.... IRS collections, rates, medicare payments, Social Security administration....

    See, the traditions of safety nets grew as our population grew, the SAFETY NETS have been tested by our highest court and remain intact.

    The ACA was found to be constitutional.

    That's how our system works. Congress makes the laws, the executive branch implements them through the various departments, and the Supreme Court protects against overreach.

    Did you not take a civics class in school?
