“You are fooling none of us with this silliness. If we took all the Koch financial resources, they would not be able to legislatively increase their fortunes as is happening now, nor would they be able to influence things like a living wage for the rest of us.”

“Maybe so, however, I do not support dispossessing private citizens because they disagree with my politics.”
“This might be an example of comfortable ignorance. Whatever, it's insulting. Pick a better source of information. Try Al Jezeera, Link TV, Democracy Now...just to get started on a clear thinking path.”
“They just won't get it, christian lefty. They don't understand that we ALREADY pay for junk plans and for care of the uninsured in a very unhealthy and fiscally irresponsible way. But...they don't wan't to hear that just like they don't want to hear about climate change. Sadly ignorance and intellectual laziness are big problems in this country.”
“I started wondering why there are so many R whiners here. They provide no solutions to the broken health care system that WAS adding to the deficit. They glom onto the problematic aspects of the ACA program that is law and just can't move on to something productive.
I guess this group of voters is the reason we have a house of representatives that has not passed one jobs bill. Actually, with 12 days and counting on their 2013 "work" calendar, they have not passed one dam n bill that would help the majority of this country. Shut down the government: 24 billion. Check. Vote to repeal ACA 40+ times. Check. Jobs? Let's help the 1% "job creators". Immigration reform? No time for that. Minimum wage? Who needs it?
Transparency? Yes. Pathetic.”

“They glom onto any and everything negative. They wait in their dark, little basement until they see which story has the most potential for them to add their dim, unenlightened, negative comments. Then, poof, their gone, off to another story or site which has more potential. It must be profitable, cuz their here all the time. They never sleep.”
“Maybe you can get a job with a "stand-up" routine. But, don't quit your day job. Even comedians have intelligence.
BTW...what's your plan for healthcare for people working at the minimum wage? You DO realize that we are picking up the tab for the uninsured and the people with junk plans (even if you have no empathy)???”
“This is the same Rand Paul who (speaking at the University of Louisville School of Medicine), when asked by a student if he had any advice for an upcoming exam, said "misinformation works"!!!! He then used an example of how he used misinformation as a student. He used the misinformation hoping that other students would not do well on the exam.... This is not even the kind of person I would want as a co-worker.”

“Good point.. misleading his fellow students was not a great indicator of personal integrity..”
“I guess Brian Kelsey from TN thought this was cute. I bet he had no alternatives to the ACA and I bet he didn't offer to help with the web site.
Disrespectful. I was so ashamed of the R congressional members at the hearing. All of those inane Republican references to Kansas and the Wizard of OZ were so juvenile. Nothing else really to say about ignorance and disrespect; these people don't represent me and they don't deserve to be sitting in this once respected body of government.”
