Reid & McConnell made a deal, right? Kentucky got something BIG. But that is beside the point. Federal employees get subsidized insurance from their employer, just like most of the folks who work for large employers. If you don't pay any of your employee's health care, you should be ashamed!Suck it up!

hey dustoff, why do you write 'axing' instead of 'asking'? It seems like you're mocking someone else's dialect. But that seems too childish for a grown adult; surely there's some other reason. What is it?

Hey Dustoff, I was just asking, as that I wanted to confirm that you are, indeed, using 'axing' as a derogative smear against African Americans. It's also nice to confirm that you're not able to discern the difference between observational humor and mocking an entire race. To answer your question though, I can recall a time when more than 460,000 people lost their health insurance: the great recession that started under your man, W. Of course, 460,000 people have not lost their insurance under the ACA, so your question is predicated on a distorted concept of reality. Check your facts.

"i can't wait for a single payer system where a Fed expert will talk to the doctor/hospital about their bill and tell them what they will pay not ask them what they must pay. then all the parasites in our medical system will have to get honest or work elsewhere."

Say hello to less doctors.

600 million aca website that doesn't work.

8 million to change marine covers to unisex

The aca website doesn't work because obamica doesn't want to be embarrassed by what he calls a good product.

If it's so good let the people see it.

No liberal objections to my questions must mean I'm right to place the responsibility squarely on the acting President of the United States. If any would like to dispute this please do so.

First of all, starrett, how do you know that he went back for the money. Was he looking for the four million dollars that Bush left on that plane over there? Do they get paid that much more to go back? Did you go over and participate in the war effort? Who are you to judge. So, Rugby blogs on other networks? Well, you must too. So what. He is entitled to his opinion of the war. I don't like it either especially the lies that were told to get us there. So what?

"loco: alcohol is create competition in oil/gas because they have too much control."

Ethanol wreaks havoc on small engines. Blended fuels are only good for 30 days. Do consumers know this fact, as it becomes increasingly difficult to get unblended gasoline in ND? This mandate has not brought only good results. Look it up...

"...each year in our U.S. 45,000 people die for lack of medical care. they can,t afford it. 100,000 more die from the wrong medication. we can do better."

Newsflash: ALL in the US will die at some point, regardless of a one-or-more-payer health care system, the best drugs on the planet, or equal access for everyone, rich or poor.

"We can do better" means what exactly?
