This is madness... the consumer is required to pay for coverage of things that they don't need, and has to use a very narrow network of providers (doctors and hospitals). that is exactly the opposite of what would actually improve the situation for anyone. What they need to do is allow the consumer to pick what they want to be covered for... i.e: most of us don't need prenatal or pediatric coverage (all men, and a large percentage of women who are beyond child bearing stage of their lives) but we are forced to pay for it. They need to require the insurance to cover any "out of network care" and find a way to get doctors and hospitals to take the patients with this insurance. This entire system takes away choice of the consumer and puts the choice in the hands of the insurance company and medical providers. It is backwards... and that is putting it nicely.
After hearing his stock talking point comments last night - the Koch Brothers did it - and how easily Ernst brushed that aside and tore him apart for it... I'm shocked that it is even that close! And it looks like the farm community has stepped up big time to deal with the dem who thinks they aren't worthy because they didn't go to law school.
That's just how he rolls... What a fool! Does he still think anyone actually believes him? I mean he obviously thinks he is telling what happened... and his cast of yes advisors must think so too... but beyond that crew of fools no one even listens to his drivel any longer. He's lied to us to many times...
Everyone with half a brain knows that is going to happen... despite all of Obama's declarations of others being the ground forces and no US boots on the ground. 1) There are already US boots on the ground.... no matter what he says. 2) It is going to take at least 6 months to a year to get any other force ready to handle the required tasks. 3) No other military force in the world... including the Russians... has anywhere near the overwhelming fire power to quickly take over ground to set the scene for the slogging through the civilian areas to ferret out the bad guys. This is not news to anyone who has a clue...
Why? It is already legal so they will be sitting home toking up...
It is already resonating... and the wave will grow with increased exposure. I was struck listening to the ad that she very easily could be talking as an abused spouse. Seems to me that the ad exposes the real war on woman... maybe those attacking the NFL over this issue (where the percentage of abuse is 1/3rd what it is in the country) should turn their attention to the current administration and their democrat friends. Oh, wait that would mean that the democrats would have to attack themselves! As for a cheap political trick? Isn't that all politics really is... cheap tricks to get what you want with no regard for how it impacts others.

Always thought he was an idiot that you just couldn't argue with because he knows everything... Now I know he is.
Of course he did... its almost as if he is on the other side. Alos, why would he put the scourge of ISIS in the same sentence as an ongoing investigation in an American city? The only explanation is he sees them as moral equals. NOT EVEN CLOSE!!! Even when he wants to talk tough to show strength, he is constantly putting qualifiers and other things in so that he doesn't make anyone mad! What kind of fool is he really? It's almost as if his sympathy is on the other side... and he is only saying the words because someone told him he had too. Who is his puppet master?
Just thinking out loud here... but if D'Sousa does get any prison time. How many years should someone get who lies under oath, targets political opponents with the power of government, files false papers in court, ignores the constitution, orders others to not enforce existing laws because they don't like them? Just wondering...
So they've spent a trillion on this thing... messed up the lives of millions of families and individuals... and did not meet a single one of their stated goals for taking it up in the first place. Go figure... that is what happens when one side doesn't listen to the other and rams through something based on fantasy. Who knew?
