Yeah, it's hard to imagine anyone is gasping from shock. From the president to Joe Sixpack, we all knew what another entitlement program meant. The liberals who defended it also knew exactly what would happen. They just didn't care as the ends always justifies the means.

Only committed statists stoned on kook aid could have believed the lies the president told to sell us this cesspool-like scam. You can't add 30 million patients and not one new doctor and not destroy access. ER visits will skyrocket nationwide just like the did in Massachusetts after Romneycare went into effect. Let's say just 5% of doctors quit practicing as they're over 60 and tired of the BS. That will exacerbate the shortage making things ever worse. Healthcare is expensive and the only way to control costs is rationing. Guess which "company" has the highest denial rate now? It's Medicare! http://healthcare-economist.com/2008/06/30/medicare-more-likely-to-deny-claims-than-commerical-health-insurers/ Obamacare is basically Medicare for all so you do the math. Hawkins hits another home run. Thanks, John!
All the more reason to push for a conservative but vote for ANY Republican. People who say there's no difference between a liberal Democrat and a moderate Republican are deluded or insane. There's a world of difference between them and while I'd love to have Reagan-era Part II, I'll take Walker or Christie or anyone else from the GOP over ANY Democrat. We cannot sit this next one out. Look what that got us in 2012! Four more long years of THIS. Enough is enough. Principles are great but they don't prevent liberal Democrats from getting elected. Voting for the most conservative Republican does.
Another RINO. Are you out of your mind? Walker is as good as they get! He's FAR better than either Romney or McCain and let's face it, there aren't any Reagans out there to run. Ted Cruz is too new, he has no executive experience and the same is true wrt Rand Paul. We have to get behind whoever the nominee is to prevent the unthinkable of having Hillary in the White House. I'd vote for my yellow lab Sasha before I'd vote for her or ANY Democrat. Stop this "RINO" talk and vote for the most conservative candidate on the ticket.
Excellent points on why THIS time, it really is different. More importantly, those differences give us real hope it may collapse under its own weight and just go away or even possibly be completely repealed.
It may very well collapse under its own weight. Many states won't set up the exchanges upon which Obamacare depends. Premiums are still skyrocketing and people are still angry. Democrats will spend ANY amount of money they can get through congress (thank goodness for House Republicans) to prop it up but they may not get the money they need. If enough common people smell the fecal matter in the Obamacare cookie I call a Fecal Festoon, THEY will demand congress get rid of it. Other entitlements stayed because the people loved them. This one is different and it could well die on the vine. Outright repeal is impossible until at least 2016 and only if it stays grossly unpopular. Otherwise, all but the very wealthy are totally screwed as we add 30 million new patients and not one new doctor. Brilliant idea there, Democrats.
We need to let public sentiment over these abuses of power build and boil over. Do NOT try to impeach Obama! That will shift the focus off of Holder, the IRS, and Benghazi and onto those "mean" House Republicans. Leave him alone. There will never, ever be a trial in the Senate so it's just not worth pursuing. Win back the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016 by letting the president stew in the cesspool he's built. That's a winning strategy. Impeachment is a guaranteed loser.
Walker's been my favorite since Romney lost the election. We don't need another senator who has zero executive experience ruining (rather than running) the White House and the economy. Walker is a conservative with a proven track record. He's very electable and after four years of murky deals and abuses of power, the nation will be ready for real change to give real hope. Poor Hillary. Always a bridesmaid but never a bride.

True. The way the selected stories are spun also demonstrates bias. When a Democrat is in the White House unemployment "unexpectedly rises." When a Republican is there, unemployment "increases sharply." Like education, journalism attracts moral do-gooders who want to change the world. Most people who want to "change the world" are believers in government and therefore liberals. It just stands to reason most who end up in the MSM will be left leaning.

It's even deeper. We have a very poorly educated, ill-informed electorate and a republic depends on having a citizenry that is very well informed. Unless We the People know what is and isn't important (or even right) then objective reporting will still largely be lost on a bunch of robotic dummies. What education people do get is also biased with the Founders no longer being brave men who gave us a nation of liberties but "hypocritical slave owners" who stole the land from the Native Americans. (No one is "native" to America, btw. They just got here first.) So we're also battling a leftwing educational system reinforced by a biased media as well as a culture of hedonism and secular humanism. Gee, what could be wrong with that?
