"The Los Angeles Ethics Commission voted unanimously last week to ask the City Council to consider "financial incentives, such as a lottery system," to draw voters to the polls." Yep, that's left coast liberals idea of ethics. Bribe the voters to show up at the polls.
"... And when something like this happens, the local authorities need to be open and transparent about how they're investigating this kind of a situation.” I guess local authorities are supposed to follow different rules on transparency than apply to POTUS Obama. Where is the transparency on Benghazi, IRS targeting, Fast and Furious, etc.?
"The Tea Party needs to realize that the GOP is just playing them. It is way past time for the Tea Party to either start its own or get behind an all ready established party." The Democrats are praying that the non Democrats splinter as you suggest because they know that will give them a lock on control of the Government. Wow what a plan, it's straight out of the Democrats divide and conquer play book.
In other words, it is a Ponzi scheme,, and all Ponzi schemes ultimately collapse.
"Why is the program becoming an ever-larger fiscal burden? The answer boils down to demographics. Simply stated, we will have more and more old people and fewer and fewer younger workers." While not the only reason for this problem, a big part of it is traceable to Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand which has reduced the birth rate. There may be a bit of poetic justice in the fact that the generations that have availed themselves of the services of Planned Parenthood etc. will likely be the first generations to feel the effect of the pending insolvency that they have contributed to,

Compromise With Obama? Surely, You Jest!

Obama made it clear early in his first term that he wasn't interested in compromise when he was leaving a meeting with congressional leaders and said, "I won." He knew or should have known that every one of them had likewise won their last election, but he didn't care. It was and is all about him getting his way.

The UN Prevents Peace

The UN is for the most part an impotent debating society. We should stop paying the disproportional paying for the costs of its operation. It wouldn't be a bad idea to invite this body to leave the US and go somewhere else. A cost benefit analysis would likely show that any marginal benefit that the US gets from the UN isn't worth the cost.
"Start over." How about just repeal it and quit while ahead. The federal government has no legitimate basis for interfering with the states in the regulation of health insurance. They just add cost with zero benefit.
"Democrats have significant reason to reduce their downside and accept a deal that most citizens would find reasonable." While it may appear that Democrats have significant reason to make a deal, they are Democrats, and they will never accept the fact that they could be wrong.
