    This is a USA tragedy in the highest form. The President is nuts and so are his ardent followers. This puts America on a socialist path. President Obama is nothing more than an orator and I am tried of everytime I turn on the TV or pickup a newspaper he is there with more damage being done the this wonderful country. America is in trouble. America is not the country that I grew up in.

    The president has worked immediately to get the economy back on track, passed the jobs bill, developed a strategy to effectively end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and and passed healthcare reform (which include republican ideas) within 1yr and 2months of his presidency! He's done more for our country in one year than Bush in 8yrs!

    Even if healthcare savings are not as much as predicted (though the estimate was provided by the reliable CBO), how do we control the ridiculously rising costs? If we have done nothing, we would have seen healthcare continue to sky rocket and the economy would be effected (since over 1/3 of the bankrupt is health-related). We had to do something. We just can't say "No." I would have been OK with the republican opposition if they offered something more than a plan that only save <7million people and "start over." Besides, their plan costs money too. People are dying every day, we don't have time to start over! My health care premiums went up 25% from last year. Thank you Obama and every legislator that voted "YES!"

    They only voted no to save their butts at election time. Vote them out. The majority of people did not want this bill. Our current congress is acting like a bunch of community organizers and doing the bidding of the minority. They are all seduced by Obama's rhetoric. He too is forgetting he is President of all Americans, and is no longer a community organizer representing minorities.

    At least Representative Lynch listened. Sen Brown won his senate seat in Massachusetts with Health Care at the top of his platform. The people of Massachusetts (one of the bluest states) didn't want this monstrosity and at least Lynch listened to what the people he represent wanted.

    If you don't have guts to explain what is right and wrong to your voters than shame on you.

  11. Sometimes when you win, you lose

    The president claimed this was a victory for the American people.
    Funny, I don't see anyone celebrating.

    It seems consistent that support of Obama's re-make the nation pledge is partisian, and resisitnce to Obama's destroy the nation policies is bi-partisian. It is good to see that there are still a few on the left who understand how our Constitution and values make us the envey of the world, and that the deliberate destruction of freedom in the US through feel-good socialist policy will eventually end poorly.
