“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?”

“He lied about the ACA to gain favorability. He knew he could never get the blue dogs' support without it. Its millions of americans who will be affected,all for political power...”
“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.”
“Why, what would YOU do about those thousands of things he has to deal with simultaneously?”

“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.”

“lol - he doesn't deal with anything - heck, he barely knows what's going on and admits he hears about it in the news!”
“It's the will of the people to block these nominees? Do you think 'the people' have ever even heard of them? Surely you don't mean it's the will of 'the people' to subvert the running of the US government. That would be treason.”
“100 million are not losing their doctors and their insurance.”

“How about those new deductibles. Out of pocket, 5000 - 12,000.”

“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.”

“I checked the exchange to see what it would be like for a single 25-year-old. I saw pretty good plans for $100-130. My life might be different today if such insurance had been available to me at age 25.”

“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.”
