"(he) really thinks he's struck comedy gold with his Putincare shtick. He's put it on every subject."

Passing off schtick as gold seems to be the way some operate around here.

Anybody remember what happened at Waco back in 1993? Wasn't that the ATF and the FBI burning women and children to death to end the siege at Mr. Carmel? Wasn't Clinton the Democrat bonehead-in-chief back then?

The pot always calls the kettle black. Democrats are such hypocrites, always wanting to live by a double standard. lying, deceiving, omitting the truth and other such devious activity is their stock in trade. Republicans are much the same, other than they're much better at lying and deceiving, another story altogether, again.

In 2002, 40 to 50 armed Chechen muslim rebels stormed a theater in Moscow. As a result, hundreds died.

It is war between Chechen rebels and the Russian Federation. All if fair in love and war. Putin decides what's fair.

"What is said about the ACA if nearly all of the chants and ads from the right r lies about it?"

That about says it!

I agree with muleskinner's assessment.

a few personal anecdotes saying Obamacare is a good deal = gospel truth, not to be disputed with in any fashion

several thousands, if not a few millions, who lost insurance plans they had been happy with = Sen. Harry Reid calling them "liars" plus libs thrilled w/Obamacare trashing the possibility of alternatives to "The Law"

Justaman, you win the who-can-deal-the-race-card-first sweepstakes. The prize? Hollow huzzahs.

By the way, what is the current version of the ACA? Anything like what was originally passed by Congress in 2010? Short answer is no. Maybe the libs can enlighten us with a long answer or two.

Best definition of ObamaCare

Nancy Pelosi said: “We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.”

A Doctor friend of mine said: "that's the definition of a stool sample".

Thank you for the re-print BillGarr!

Responses like those of Representative Cramer are uniformly crafted by what you would call a group and by no means reflect the individuals actual stance on the issue.

Had he written a personal response it would have more than likely went like this; I wouldn't dream of supporting anything that black#@%$ does or needs as long as the #@$%$# in our White House.

How many millions insured who were paying health insurance had their policies cancelled? 6 million? More?

Not happy campers, if the reality surfaces and the cold hard facts are right there in front of everybody, you have to accept the reality, not the fantasy of gov health insurance.

It is not insurance of any kind at all.

However, a single letter to the editor gives ACA high marks and it is presented as a success and everyone should fall in line because of one satisfied customer while millions are left hung out to dry with their policies.

I'll believe the ACA is doing more harm than good and is in full violation of the Hippocratic Oath.

It will be a failure and is now.

Millions who once had health care insurance who were dropped know better.

It's propaganda through and through.

One satisfied health insured policy holder is an ecstatic success, millions of dissatisfied health insured totally ignored.

It's propaganda.

In the words of Upton Sinclair:

It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.

In other words: You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.

It is not health care. How can it possibly be health care, the gov is running the show.

It is not health care and it is difficult to understand when your not understanding it benefits you.

This letter appears in the Dickinson newspaper. It can be read in its entirety there. In fact, it is in a lot of newspapers throughout the state.

The letter is propaganda.

It is a nice propaganda piece for ACA. And then followed by a comment from an ACA propagandist.

However, it is not the general sentiment from the population as a whole, therefore, it is pure unadulterated horse feathers.

Whether it is intentional or unintentional, it is still propaganda.

Don't believe a single word of it, it is not the truth about ACA.

And then their mouth piece, drudge, lies outright, but the know nothing wingers still support him. Hatred and lies have no boundaries when it comes to the far right.
