From prnewswire . com

"Recent polls by Mayors Against Illegal Guns (Mayor Bloomberg's group, who ran the r e d n e c k-in-a-truck ads) showed likely voters in a wide range of states and congressional districts overwhelmingly support background checks for all gun sales. The average support for background checks for all gun sales among 41 congressional district polls was 89 percent; the average among 21 statewide polls was 86 percent. In North Dakota, 94 percent support background checks."

Yeah, that Mayor Bloomberg really likes Sen. Heitkamp, doesn't he?

So Lloyd Omdahl's figures from BT are too low, according to this report about the Mayors' work, who are totally unbiased /sarc/.

Here's a little website referred to in article w w w . demandaction . org

"Demand Action" for what? One guess and it ain't term limits for mayors.

Final point: Statistics schmatistics

They can be made to say whatever anybody wants them to say.

Don't worry people the insurance industry will continue to take our hard earned money and invest it in wall street....and when it comes time to pay it back they will find a loophole to shirk their responsibility to their victims.

HEY DustOH Baucus... "The administration's public information campaign on the benefits of the Affordable Care Act deserves a failing grade," he told Sebelius. "You need to fix this."

HEY DustUP He says BENEFITS !!! He's talking about the promotion of the law!! He is NOT talking about the law itself!!!

Do I need to 6 or 8 exclamation points after everything to make it sink IN?!!!!!!!

"The uninsured and healthy who do not carry ins for whatever reason are costing us all, because Everyone will need health care at some point."

So, of course, the government MUST be put in charge of providing health care (sarc). Besides, I think the above statement is bogus.

And we thought toilet seats for the military ended up being overpriced? I just don't see this whole thing improving overall, because of precedent with other government industry takeovers.

What about the student loan thingy? Now interest rates are now controlled by political parties' whims and fancies, if they weren't already before.

Where is government oversight on fraud and waste in its own programs? That's right. No one in charge has been appointing inspectors general who used to perform that task.

Government bureaucracies = SNAFU

"If Obamacare is fully implemented, tens of millions of Americans will have health care and alot of them won't die."

Guess what, Veritas. Even if all Americans have full coverage provided for any health care need, all Americans will still die, inevitably, at some point. No, really.

"Jesus provided free healthcare and did not charge money for it."

Well, this is one way of looking at the miracles of Jesus that I've never heard before.

I'm planning on picking up Obama Care Survival Guide. It will probably explain some of the many new laws and taxes attached to this law.

Trying to write from an Iphone is a chore when it comes to grammar.

Veritas - You are right of course and agree with you.

Problem is the ACA was enacted with a lot of special interests (Ins Companies etc.) so that it is monumental in its implementation. Still it is better than what we had before. The uninsured and healthy who do not carry ins for whatever reason are costing us all, because Everyone will need health care at some point.

They were afraid to go full scale and provide something like medicare or Medicaid to all people because it was to bold and the special interests easily knocked it down.

If you have the money fine, buy your premium care. But we need comprehensive care for all, and it is doable regardless of how it is skewered. How else can you explain the Canada, Germany, France, England take care of all their folks for half the cost we pay? Not rocket science, people are dying and suffering because of our lack of will, and dedication to the right thing.

All Americans are already paying for health care, the biggest jump was in 201-2004, where as for the last 3 years price increases have slowed considerable from the past. - Kaiser Foundation Info - That is a fact and pokes a big hole in the argument that healthcare costs gone up more because of ACA. It is a misrepresented fact that costs have gone up much more under the current President, and it is perpetuated by certain news orgs with non discerning listeners.

Scrap it, and provide Medicare for all, and if you have money they go get/pay for your premium care. Bring back compassion and true caring and take care of our people...

Jesus provided free healthcare and did not charge money for it.

The Great USA is the only democratic civilized country that does not provide healthcare to all, unlike those communist countries like Canada, France, England, Germany who spend half as much on health care as we do yet take care of their own.

USA is not about compassion and caring for the poor and distraught, they are about the almighty dollar, the rich and the corporation interests.. Why do you think the House of Representatives is trying to cut out food stamps? And who are they?

WWJD!!!!

Jesus was never talking to the government. He was talking to people, individuals, and expressing the need for everyone to love one another, and for each individual to care for each other. Never have I read anywhere in the Bible that Jesus told the government to mandate anything.

Republicans will fight to the end against health care for all - simply to spite the President. That is not a policy, and only pleases the extreme elements on which there foundation is built.

Extremism in the party is killing at an ever increasing speed.
