“What deceit and lies? Y\The fact that he should have been more open about the small percentage of people who might be adversely affected while most benefited? You seriously think that defines a presidency?”

“For some people it is. No matter how hard they try.

Say....a learning disabled person who went as far as they could in school, works at a job just under full time, with no benefits, starts at minimum wage, after two years gets a 15 c an hour raise, had tried for years to get a job and has never missed a day - what's your message for him?”

“Whoever said they should be equal? The entire point is the discrepancy between the majority of workers' pay being stagnant or dropping over the past few decades while that of the highest earners has soared to astronomical heights. No one says they should be paid the same; anyone should be able to see there's something not right with this picture.”

“Well, I don't see it. I find that the business owner has taken more risk and has more responsibility and should reap what he/she sows. As I stated, the 'wage disparity' that 'you' see is not the real issue - the issue is why are people struggling to make ends meet - ie taxes, costs, no jobs avail etc. Address those REAL issues and everything shakes out accordingly.”

“You really think that with those obscenely high salaries - many to avoid the company taxes - that there would be so little money to pay the workers a bit more that we'd end up paying more for fries?”

“Are you saying he did not know what he was getting into, when he ran for president?First of all, I would not have hired all the inept people he has surrounded himself with, but then again, the man has never done any hiring or firing in his life, since he has never had a real job. Heck, if community organizing qualifies you to be president, a lot of us could be the leader.”

“Compared to the actions of these Republicans, yes, they very much were.

At least they treated Bush respectfully, even when they disagreed. Good governance was still the order of the day, as it always has been. This is ridiculous.

What would you have thought of Obama if he'd been president on 9/11? Would you have stood behind him, as we all did with Bush?”

“Could you detail this spending, please?

You are confusing Obama with his predecessor. That is EXACTLY the description of Bush's actions. Obama has soent LESS than most previous presidents.

Try objective sources.”

“You don't know that. Obama suspended the employer mandate for a year, for a simple reason:

Many if not most employer policies, do NOT comply to the Obamacare mandate. They are good policies that don't cover EVERYTHING, including drugs and abortion, mental health and drug counseling.

I don't use checkups, tests and drugs - and I won't pay for yours. What's that you say, they keep us healthy? I'm 63, National Merit Scholar, 30 years in software including five in medical imaging. Consulted around the world with radiologists, including at RSNA - and YOU'RE WRONG.

And even if you weren't, you don't have the right to force to me pay for others optional maintenance medical care. And that's what Obamacare does. I've violated Romney Care four years now, and most will violate ACA. They won't like it, and Christie will be elected President in 2016.”

“I did. In order to keep my Dr. and the medical group I was in, I had to stay with the policy my company presented. It went from $347. a month to $742. a month and a higher deductible.

Does it matter if it was millions or thousands? You are a union guy/gal, and may not be affected.”

“Depression is truly awful. At worst, even if you don't take your own life, it robs you of virtually a life. The worst thing is 'maybe you ought to try some sort of medication' - as though it had never occurred to the sufferer. Some kinds are drug-resistant.”
