Johnson has done nothing for this county he needs replaced. He has the best of everything and could care less about any of the people he represents unless they are the rich. he can tell you he came from a poor family, but would care less about the poor in the 6th District. He and his Napolean syndrome have no place in this district.

I wish we could elect people who can think and make decisions based on whats best for the majority,

Instead we get robots who have to read the weekly party publication to get their instructions for the week.

Attacking his character isn't really the same as making an argument for supporting Obamacare. Instead, attack the points he made in his column with solid facts and figures (like how Obamacare really won't raise premiums, or won't cause businesses to lay off / not hire, etc). With that kind of information, who can claim you are all wrong?

The only ones cutting are the ones who offer nothing to begin with,

Fast food,resturants etc.

From some of the figures rates are high either.

The Cleveland clinic myth was debunked several days ago. I would say I'm surprised that your still trying to uses it, but I'm not surprised at all. Actually, pretty par for the course.

"Debunked"?

Can you post a link? My google search didn't come up with anything mainstream that stated Obamacare was absolutely not a consideration for the layoffs.

"The only ones cutting are the ones who offer nothing to begin with,"

So the poorer will get less so the poor can get more and that's okay?

Again I will say .

Whats your alternative ?

The cost of health insurance has been rising an avg, of 11 % or more yr, since 2000. There are now more than 60 million uninsured people.

Which means every time they go to the emergy room for care it gets added to our premiums .

So lets hear your plan

The only thing the NRA cares about is the gun lobby.

11000 killed /yr in America

Lets just arm everyone, They'll solve it all.

Kind of curious about one thing ?

When this whole thing started with the CCW all this crime was supposed to go away because the criminal didn't know who had a gun .

Apperantly they don't care.

Or maybe Wal-Mart who pays their employees such low wages they qualify for gov, assistance programs,

The NRA suggested putting armed security in all our schools.

Have they sent a check yet ?

Oh that's right lets the tax payer pay for it.

Boy the 13 killings at the Navy Yard sure died off in a hurry.

"The only thing the NRA cares about is the gun lobby."

The NRA pretty much IS the gun lobby. Again, they wouldn't be so powerful if it wasn't for all the money everyday Americans send them to defend their rights against the crackpots and wannabe tyrants in government.

"11000 killed /yr in America" isn't a gun problem...its a cultural problem. These people will find a way to kill each other with or without guns.

The NRA regularly publishes accounts of armed citizens successfully defending themselves against attacks. They've been doing it for decades. You would know that if your handlers would permit you to read them. Additionally, there is no way to determine how many crimes were never committed because the persons contemplating the crimes determined they were too high risk.

It sure did! The more they tried to use it for another reason for gun control the more they revealed about how gun control didn't work. The government failed in several areas.

Now, back to the main topic,

Bug, I'm not necessarily against government funded healthcare but this Obamacare is a train wreck. On one hand, if businesses didn't have to provide healthcare insurance to their employees then that could make them much more competitive in the global market and it would make the USA more attractive for foreign businesses to set up shop here and hire Americans. On the other hand, we know how the government runs things, so it is foreseeable that getting a simple check-up will turn into a colossal pita.

Before we can successfully do anything with the government paying for healthcare, we need to reduce the size of government and we need to reduce the non-working culture (I don't mean temporarily unemployed persons...I mean persons who absolutely refuse to work).

Obamacare does neither and that will guarantee failure. We will have healthcare resources quagmired in bureaucracy and will not have enough tax revenue to pay for it.
