“Yes, because of course "normal" Americans would be trying to save the life of an American soldier wasting away in captivity, That anyone is criticizing saving Bergdahl just boggles the mind.”

“His problem is not that he's gay. It's part of who he is and he has a right to be out of the closet. But how can he in good conscience be a part of the GOP which is fighting to shove all gay Americans back in the closet and deny them their rights as citizens.”

“Democrats need to go full out supporting the ACA. It has saved lives. Stop being cowards. Let people know the GOP doesn't care about the People.”

“The problem is what the NFL defines as a locker room issue. Michael Vick torturing and killing dogs is just dandy with the NFL. No locker room problem with animal abusers, rapists, drug addicts and bigots. But a guy is gay and there's a problem? No, it's bigotry pure and simple. The excuse not to integrate baseball was it would hurt team morale. It would be a locker room issue. The cancer is bigotry. That is the real locker room issue.”

“Obviously you don't understand that Obamacare has expanded access to private health insurance. The Medicaid expansion gives even more people access to health care. And young people being able to stay on their parents insurance until age 26 even more. It has allowed people with previous conditions to get insurance they were once denied. Stops lifetime caps on insurance. In other words Obamacare has improved the ability of people to get well and stay well.”

NamVet 822 on May 8, 2014 at 15:44:47

“The only reason I bring up Obamacare is the influx of many more people combined with Nursing shortages and Primary Care Doctor shortages. Right now many Doctors refuse Medicare which I think the majority have signed up for. Hey...it is the law of the land and I do hope it works to the benefit of America. We may know 4-5 years from now.”

“Clearly the GOP wants some form of government. How else would they be paid six figures plus perks to support their lifestyles if there was no taxpayer funded government to pay them? Their
idea of "appropriate" level is corporations polluting our water, air and being allowed a free hand to sell shoddy goods that endanger our lives. They want that "appropriate" level to include third world wages, no child labor laws, no workplace safety standards. I could go on and on but I would assume you get the idea.”

“I have never heard a GOP politician or any of my GOP friends advocate those types of policies. I realize the GOP views on how to handle those situations are sometimes substantially different from the Democratic views - but just because someone has a different approach doesn't mean they have evil intent (as I think your post implies).

Personally, I don't like either party - they are both big government parties that seem far more concerned with their party than the country and it's citizens. I think many of the policies from both parties are very harmful to the poor and middle class. There are some politicians in both parties that I like, but unfortunately none of those are in leadership positions.”

“This is manslaughter. Knowingly putting people into a situation that could be deadly. Maybe it's murder? They admit they know this is a problem but refuse to fix it. Then there are deaths and they continue to sell the cars now knowing it is a deadly problem. They need to be held accountable. And since they want their Corporations to be People maybe they should all be arrested and put on trial for the deaths of those people who were worth less than a dollar per car.”
