    Are any of you familiar with this guy? Does he have an ax to grind?

    The funny part of Obamacare is that it's actually useless. Yet, people actually want it in place. roll

      I would like to read an article that wasn't filled with such biased animosity.
      What the H...this guy is implying that parents should be angry to pay for their kids healthcare!
      My X and I are very happy to support our daughter going into college.....I, myself didn't see a doctor or dentists for many many many many many many years after leaving home!
      And I had a tooth removed recently, and it was covered on my insurance....as far as I know--that has never been the case up to now. It is low-income insurance...your premiums are low--according to what you earn. And still dental is covered! That is new!

      And this guy obviously reads only one side of this. I have read articles praising the cost-saving policies in Obamacare.....but it is a long-range plane. It will take time to see results.

      And as far as this author being his cousin: Dick Cheney is a half cousin to Obama also......

      So much for an un-biased, reasoned opinion....more insulting terms in there than a tea-party bash. Washington Times Mooney Cult news.

        That's why I asked if the cuz had an ax to grind. I don't like parts of Obamacare, but I thought this was very one-sided.

      Obama: "In order to fix the problem of health care being so expensive, let's force everyone to buy health insurance"

      Media: "Great Idea!!"

      Everyone with a brain: "Um... supply and demand?"

        There is a huge demand......but supply is hard to come by...especially for pre-existing conditions and for younger workers, who tend not to be covered.

        If every driver carried auto insurance, premiums for all drivers would be lower...

          Yeah...pregnancy used to be a pre-existing condition.

          Nice for everyone who has a cushy job allright...I guess Obama trying to help the rest of us is just a dumb cluck. Dumb stupid sume cum laude.
          We probly need a c student pres again...then these people can tell us what a regular guy he is, and how awful it is to have a pres with brains.
          Oh...I forgot Obam has no brains. No brains, no idea what he's doing, nothing good about him at all.
          I keep forgetting....he's the worst, he's no good, get him out get him out.

          Ingrates. All these people must make over $250,000, or they would be grateful, like I am.

          They all must have great healthcare coverage and no problems making their bills.
          No worries, so let's get a Bagger in there to suit all of you.

          I guess the rest of us dumb clucks who like Obama can go back into desperate poverty with no one to give a crap.

            Now here you go:

            Obama is worse than Charles Manson...and these people call themselves Americans!

            "The Los Angeles Times reports that presidential contender Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) recently thanked a caller on a radio show who said he’d rather vote for infamous serial killer Charles Manson over President Obama. “Hey, thank you for saying that,” she replied."

            That's why I just can't wait for repub debates...or for rabid-right radio....they fall all over themselves deciding who Obama is worse than, how bad he is, how stupid, how wrong, how divisive...

            Great Americans, competing for who can deride the president more.
            And to think, Obama got called on for not wearing a flag pin!

      Very interesting piece!

      Recently I ran across a site that presents all kinds of predictions that turned out to be ludicrously way off.  This included predictions about science, technology, popular culture, societal trends, and much more.

      One of the "best" hmm (?):

      “By the year 1982, the graduated income tax will have practically abolished major differences in wealth.” —Irwin Edman, professor of Philosophy, Columbia University, 1932

      Maybe this guy was one of the President's advisors?  lol  lol
