Congress really refused the millions for promoting Obamacare? I hadn't heard. I will commend them if it is true. If Obamacare was really the cat's meow that it was purported to be; there would be NO need to stuff it down our throats, I mean promote it.

My goodness, what a serious, "well written" editorial and so full of factual data?? I would bet that it was written locally by one of the illiterates upstairs at the MDN. First of all, learn how to write. Secondly, Try to be more factual in your opinion article. It is not illegal for Sebelius to solicit these funds just because the big wig Repubs think so. Since the Republicans have blocked everything put forth by the democrats for five years, it is reasonable to seek other directions. All of the examples provided by the MDN in this "opinion" are presented as facts and based on this list, I was surprised that Acorn and Swift boat were not included. But, as long as the Repubs and their minions can focus on making up scandals, then they don't have to deal with a jobs bill they have hid for eighteen months, ending sequester, or anything else that will help the country. Oh, yes, they can still vote 37 times to repeal Obamacare but that is just more of their obstru

Maybe the MDN should do some "investigative" reporting and ask why our congressman voted for this.......And stop the prepetuating about something that has already started helping hundreds of thousands of people...hhmmmm????

"Kevin Cramer joined House Republicans yesterday to approve the “Students Pay More Act,” a measure to force college students to pay more interest for their education loans. With the average college student shouldering $26,000 in debt, the Associated Press this week described how “student loan rates could steadily climb and cost students more over the long haul under the plan House Republicans are considering.” “Congressman Cramer has again put Washington first and as a result, North Dakota’s students will face the prospect of a bigger burden because he backed a bill that would allow interest rates to go up to 8.5 percent.”

Such amateurish attempts at deflecting the obvious to everyone: This president and administration is now without any doubt, the most corrupt and inept; the worst in United States of America's history. Any socialistic sympathizing with the president, such as 'who wrote this article' are immature deflection attempts. Own it: Obama is the worst in recorded history; there can no longer be any doubt by any common standard or measure.

Everything that people have said about Obama Care is coming true. Companies are cutting back on the employees and their hours. Everything that Obama said we could keep and won't change a thing, if you choose to keep your own insurance, is a lie.

Yep, the lefty hyperbole seems rather like that colorful barnyard phrase NT4M attributed to his/her father.

Many here seem to be out in full deflection mode, with blame of a previous administration much more compelling than the actions of the present.

Like Daffy Duck/Duck Dodgers said after engaging his rocket ship:

"Heh heh, had the silly thing in reverse!"

Maybe nobody at the MDN or Disgusted, Missy, or loco read the last Forbes article where it talks about Obama being American's BEST economical President...EVER!!!! In there it also talks about ACA (Affordable Health Care Act) of which I will paste it here....

"ACA levels the playing field and will be good for economic growth. Where previously only large corporations could afford employee health care plans, in the future far more employees will have far more equitable coverage. Further, today employees frequently are unable to leave a company to start a new business because they would lose health care, which in the future will not be true."

hhmmmm....Sounds like a bunch of friggin COMMIES to me, huh??? That Forbes article must of been written by libs...oh, wait.... (Please also note the sarcasim)

Really Bill...You wanna use Bachman as your "reliable source" The dingbat who thinks that "god" is going to "save us all" from ACA...Heck, even the whack - job from AZ Jan Brewer said she would veto everything until Obamacare Medicaid Expansion is Implemented!!

I realize that it is useless to try to inform conservatives, they are not information seekers who want balanced information. And confronting them with factual information makes them dig in, but even on March 29, 3013 Obama asked for 21 Billion to fix roads, bridges, and ports and Repubics filibustered it....Washington state, May 24th, 2013....Missouri state, TODAY!!!! Wake up and realize your party is DESTROYING AMERICA!!!.... Oh wait, umbrella-gate.. OH MY!!!!

I don't believe everything I read. I mostly listen to People that this is affecting in real life. And what changes, mostly bad, that have put their companies, and professionals to make other arrangements on how they will continue. Try that for once.

Republicans and Democrats. Two sides of the same coin.

Aren't these federal highway funds just the kind of "gifts" that we red states should be turning down? So as to avoid the appearance of sucking from the Federal teet? You love squawking those red state moochers, but still you can't help but hog the nipple.

So forget about the political posturing between the Repubs and the Demos. Effectively they've become equal partners in the same corrupt system. We already know that congressional politics these days is all about bringing home the Federal gravy, no matter what side of the aisle your delegation sits. The Republican end game has more to do with that, and less to do with depriving citizens of roads and bridges, or those those lovely make-work jobs

Libs like to pretend to hate Republicans. But the parties are nearly identical.

In truth, you have utter contempt for Conservatives. When we reclaim the party, we'll let you know.

If DustOff was a commercial, he'd be the energizer bunny, as he does just keep going and going.

Here's another classic commercial, just for willgrr.
