When I woke up this morning I was even more depressed than yesterday morning. Imagine this folks.......obamacare is NOT going away. That means EVERY doctor who ministers to a patient, BEFORE they can treat the patient they MUST get the approved treatment from several bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. AND that means that by necessity there WILL BE DEATH PANELS. Just why do the people not get that. WE DON'T HAVE THE MONEY FOLKS FOR ANY MEDICAL TREATMENTS MUCH LESS FOR TREATMENTS TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO PRODUCTIVITY LEFT......such as Seniors and those with existing medical conditions such as RH and MS and MD and HEART DISEASE and CANCER. WHY don't all of you people get it?

I recently turned 75 (years old), and am not in the best of health. I suppose that means that now I am expendable and will not be able to get health care. What has the former great U.S.A. become? I can only say that I am glad that my parents (deceased) can not see what is happening to this once great country. However, I am sad as my children will have to survive the coming downfall of America. What the enemies of America could not do, our President is accomplishing. Please God, save the U.S.A.

Carol, they WANT us depressed. Don't fall for it. We are still blessed as a nation, and one battle does not determine the outcome of the war!

But Lance, just how do you propose that "obamacare" will GO AWAY.

And how do you propose that obama (who has an agenda of destroying all the wonder and beauty and joy and FREEDOMS and GOD GIVEN RIGHTS for ALL people) wants to get rid of all of that and turn us into a 3rd world poverty stricken communist government run under sharia law.

I have a niece with Rheumatoid Arthritis and she has been suffering with that since 2 years old. She is now 50 years and she has had over 3 dozens surgeries in her lifetime. SHE DOES NOT WORK AND HASN'T WORKED FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS. SHE IS EXTREMELY HANDICAPPED AND ALL OF HER medical treatments and surgeries have been paid for through medicaid.
NOW she WANTS obamacare in full force and she WANTS a single payer system.
Does that make any sense to anyone. SHE WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY CARE ANYMORE FROM THE GOVERNMENT. She is NOT a productive person in society.

Why don't the masses recognize and realize that despot dictators such as obama NEED those very few productive people around so that they have their source of money to feed their GREEDY and FILTHY hands. Therefore, anyone who isn't productive IS NOT viable to the obama's of the world.

No one should be the least bit surprised; Reid's been talking about this for awhile, and even moved unilaterally to alter long-standing Senate rules to shield his members from difficult votes last year (mission accomplished).  Filibuster "reform:" Coming soon to a Senate near you?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that he will try to push through a change to Senate rules that would limit the GOP’s ability to filibuster bills. Speaking in the wake of Tuesday’s election, which boosted Senate Democrats’ numbers slightly, Mr. Reid said he won’t end...
