    I'm sorry but I just want to respond to perhaps give you a little perspective. I just want to correct you just a little bit. It's not "Anti-Obama", it's "Anti-liberal policies". There is a difference. As a libertarian I can only tell you that I want my representatives to run on the platform of "we are going to stay out of your business and out of your life".

    Wrong. It's all about being anti-Obama. It's personal. It always has been. Mitch McConnell set the sights on the target. Libertarians are some of the worst when it comes to wanting a government that invades into your personal life. They want the whole world to be pastuerized to their liking: i.e.; anti-gay marriage, anti-abortion, anti-health care, and let's not forget anti-reality.

    that's the sad part .... that's why KY should have voted him OUT ..... He should be working for the People...it should not be a personal thing, period....

    Too freekin bad. Join the 4.2 Million on the individual market feeling your pain. Next up – The Employer Mandate!
    ________________________
    Ironic and irrational Fair- the "individual mandate" was Gingrich's baby- well, he and your exaulted "Heritage" Foundation. See how far you guys have gone off the map in 20 years?
    -------
    First – please see my comment and note I said "Employer Mandate", not "individual mandate". You see, rs, what I mean by my comment is simple – the 4.2 million Obama apologized to last night will look like chump change to the MILLIONS who are going to lose their employer-sponsored plans next year. They HAVE to. The actuarial science behind Obamacare demands it.
