“I saw a story on The Rachel Maddow Show where she showed a clip of a guy who was on Fox News saying he was able to get ACA for his family except for his 2 yr old because the ACA doesn't cover babies. Turns out the guy forgot to add his baby. Seriously. He mistake was corrected but of course he nor Fox didn't report the guy made a mistake.”

“Just heard that on the David Packman radio show not 40 minutes ago.
Who forgets that they have four children instead of three???”

“TYPICAL GOP VOMIT… thanks for the story, as you said the neo-CONS would never admit it.”
“Your tv channel must be stuck on Faux news. So let me clarify. House Republicans have a single digit approval rating. There're the ones stopping any progress from occurring. Spending millions of taxpayer $ to try to repeal the ACA 41 times, passing 55 bills in 3+ years, approving subsidies for the wealthy like they need it and cutting subsidies for the poor that do, etc. If Dems had the majority in the house, the House of Congress' approval rating would be a hell of alot higher. But of course you will never acknowledge that.”

“What does my post have to do with Fox News? My point was that you think Congress is controlled by Republicans. You don't seem to know that what Congress is, House and Senate, or who controlls what. Otherwise, why post about the President vs Congress instead of the President and Senate Democrats vs House Republicans. You wrongly call it "the House of Congress." It's the Houses, plural, of Congress meaning the Senate and the House of Representatives. Get a clue.
You're worried about the millions spent repealing the ACA when it's a strawman. As if most of those people who work for Congress won't be getting paid salaried regardless of whether bills you like or dislike are being passed or voted down. As if they turn off the utilities in the Capitol unless Congress is voting. What a bunch of bunk. I'm more worried about the over 5 million Americans who are having to pay double the premiums for worse health insurance and the sick losing their doctors. The ACA has created nothing but chaos for a majority of American.
Apparently you don't realize that the Democrats and Obama have been seeing a drastic drop in approval ratings because a vast majority of Americans don't like the ACA. But of course you will never acknowledge that. The American people elected the Representatives of their choice. It's due to opposition to the ACA when it passed that the Republicans took control of the House of Representatives.”
“You forgot to compare those numbers to Congress' approval which is less than 10%. This isn't golf where the lower score is better.”

“What is it with you liberals and your lack of knowledge as to exactly what Congress is? Congress is made up of both the Democrat controlled Senate and the Republican controlled House of Representatives. When they rate Congress, it includes Democrats and Republicans in both the House and the Senate. Currently, Congressional Republicans have a better approval rating than Congressional Democrats.
I can't help but wonder if most liberals failed civics or social study classes.”
A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."
The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.
She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican.
"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"
"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."
The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Tea Party Republican."
"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"
"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are -- or where you are going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it's my fault."”
“So you're saying go after programs that help and effect families and the poor. How about "entitlement programs" that "help" the rich like oil and farm subsidies? Or making corporations like GE pay taxes? How does a company make $14 billion in profits and get a tax refund? I don't hear the Tea Party blowing their pot kettle lids off about that.”

“I agree that the tax code is lousy. I'd like a simplified code that has individuals paying 16-18% of income and corporations”
“Let me get this straight. You go into the restaurant, get seated, meet you waiter who you judge by her hairstyle and determine she's gay and instead of requesting a different waiter or table, you order your meal, eat, then leave without a tip because "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I don't agree with your lifestyle & how you live your life."Something tells me this was an excuse not to tip. I could be wrong.”

“These are the type of people that would have, and did have, no problem owning slaves.”
“Lol. Really? Remember the town hall meeting in 2009/2010? I guess not. "Liberals thoroughly support a person's right to free speech as long as they agree with what you want to say." Sounds alot like Teaparty/GOP tactics to me.”
“Yipee. Your St. Ronald Reagan raised it more than 18 times. Not one peep outta you GOPers then. Bush did it 7 times. Not one peep outa you GOPTPers. Obama becomes POTUS and all of sudden this country's going to hell.”
“Wrong again. The US debt is at its lowest in almost 10 years. As the saying goes, you're welcome to your opinion, not the facts. He didn't start the war in Afganistan but will end it in 2014. Anything else you need to be corrected on?”
“This is not because of the sequestration. As the articale indicates, the decline has been progressively declining before any sequetration began. And just so you know this sequestration effects my paycheck since I'm a government employee.”
“Lie, Fox is not a news orgianization. They only give left wing opinion. No intelligent people take ANYONE there seriously.Ratings just means more clueless uninform people watch them, just like the Bush administration. Mishandling Katrina crisis, Iraq, Bin Laden, the US economy, illegal wire tapping, etc. Good ol Texas politics in Washington. Dusgusting, all the nuts on the right will keep supporting this dirty administration.”
