“You did not get the point at all. This nation was built on the premise of freedom, we are slowly losing our freedom by allowing the government to get too big and powerful. If you don't understand - hopefully at some point you will before it is too late.”
“Wrong. Even though ObamaCare "cuts" Medicare; it isn't really a cut, it's health care reform aimed at improving care for seniors. The fact is, millions more seniors will be covered under Obama's health care plan. Here are some things that the program does to improve Medicare:
• ObamaCare closes the "donut hole" that was causing Seniors not to be able to afford their prescriptions. (The Medicare "donut hole" is the Part D drug coverage limit where seniors must start paying out of pocket for their prescriptions.) In 2012, seniors got a 50 percent discount when buying brand name drugs and 14 percent discount on generic drugs covered by Medicare Part D. This reform gets stronger every year, increasing coverage and closing the donut hole until it disappears in 2020. From that point on, seniors will only pay usual drug co-pays.
• ObamaCare expands existing coverage for seniors, including preventive care and wellness visits without charging you for the Part B co-insurance or deductible. This reform has been active since 2011 and gives seniors better access to cancer screenings, wellness visits, personalized prevention plans, vaccines, flue shots and more.
• ObamaCare does not cut any benefits from Medicare Advantage.
• ObamaCare reigns excess spending on Medicare Advantage, which is currently causing a burden on the tax payer that is disproportionate to the amount of people it helps. Medicare Advantage is run by private insurers and costs $1,000 more per person”
“His speech was always free. He didn't get arrested. No rights were taken away. Any employer has the right to terminate any employee or suspend if the employee deos hate speech that goes against company policy.”
“All the National Parks are closed, open air or not. And no Pres. Obama did not personally order the memorials closed. They are part of the park system. Thanks for trying to shift the blame game. Next.”
“Looks like Boehner says his way or the highway..He's going to let America close...He has not even talked to the White House in weeks....
Kind of reminds me of a little man in the 40's with a mustache.”
“I thought the GOP was going to create jobs. That's the platform they ran on in 2010. They'be voted down any bill that would create jobs. Unemployment is high here because the jobs have been outsourced to China and India.”

“I thought Barry was going to do the same thing and his pals had a lock on Congress for two full years before only One House was taken over by the GOP, which yet provides a superior track record over Democrats in placing Americans back to work.
Indeed, you do not know what you are even talking about.
These guys do.
