I don't believe it. They don't write the same at all.

Thank You Whistler, it was my 59th birthday today. I wasn't going to let a couple of horses back ends to ruin it.

USA Today 8-9-12

"The president and his aides once shunned the word "Obamacare," at a time when both the law and Obama were struggling politically.

"They have maintained that the 2010 health care law would become more popular after its benefits became known; that belief may explain Obama's embrace of the term now."

Associated Press's Nancy Benac appears to have reported the first derisive use of the term by a political candidate. That candidate was, what do you know, Mitt Romney. On September 15, 2007, Benac wrote:

Already, the GOP candidates are branding Democratic proposals a step on the road to socialized medicine while they offer incremental steps such as tax breaks to expand coverage and make it more affordable. "Let me tell ya, if we don't do it, the Democrats will," warns Republican Mitt Romney. "And if the Democrats do it, it'll be socialized medicine. It will be government-managed care. It'll be what's known as Hillary-care or Barack Obama-care or whatever you want to call it."

PJ, you don't think a black calling a white a cracker isn't offensive? So it is all about you. Such as I thought. You don't help, YOU like it. You like stirring up trouble.

Why would I? You people never answer a question. Why don't you go watch the video of, Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood on the cma awards. They did a skit of Obamacare. It was HILARIOUS.

And from far, far away in left field, not even close to home plate, PJinfinity does his swing and a miss.

I did not word that right. I was paying close to 700.00 per month for me and 700.00 for my husband for a dinosaur plan. I thought they could actually look for a plan for 400.00 a month. They never looked. Why would I put them on my plan??? They took the money, and didn't give a crap about their Health care. Now we have Obama care. I don't know if or when my plan will be cancelled. You got it Left wing?

Left wing, I gave them an option to get extra money, 400.00 a month, at the end of our business to quit. Guess what? They took the money and never bought health care. I wasn't going to demand that they go on my insurance. Loco, anytime. It made me giggle tonight too.

"Remember Nancy Pelosi said, "We need to pass it, to see what's in it"? That is the definition of a Stool sample."

Thanks for the chuckle, Missy. :-)

Considering all the signups on the Obamacare websight have been welfare/medcaid/government takers the numbers who like it should be 90%. seems they are not getting as much free as they were hoping for.

leftywing, based on my experience of dealing with what Missy listed (unemployment, FICA, Medicare, etc), she's credible, while you're...maybe...envious?

Garr if you look at the chart on RCP you will see the line showing the decline of those who like Obamacare.. Just like you don't have employees as Missy pointed out you don't know how to read a graph chart either..

Guess they don't teach that at the welfare college do they?

willgrr, when I go to the Real Clear Politics site, I see that your post is a result you cherry-picked from their info. Nice try though...

37% disapproval from one poll, Associated Press/GfK 10/3 - 10/7

42.7% disapproval from several polls, RCP Average 10/18 - 11/5

Why, it is true. You can make statistics say whatever you want them to.

Just look at the site yourselves and make up your minds how the numbers roll.

raj, I had to think for a minute, but yeah, I got your meaning for the saddle thingy.

Well, when I said it, I meant working at my normal job, the opposite of what you meant.

No harm, no foul :-)

Will Garr, answer my question. Have you or have you NOT employed a person. Paid his wage, took out the taxes that the Government demanded. Paid his Workers Comp. and ran Safety meetings. Every year give them a raise if they actually did something. Give them some kind of heath care. Have YOU?

Will Garr, why don't you do it? I have employed people for many years. Since 1978. How many people have you employed? I am tired of jumping through hoops of every Government Change. I don't need to do it anymore. One less Hassle.

muleskinner, I thought this was a free nation. I thought that what ever religion we choose to do, would not be attack. I thought we were free to choose our way of life and Health care. That is why I decided to never vote Democrat again. I don't need some felony convicted person being a Navigator for my Health care. My personal information. My rights as a free citizen, who paid my taxes every year, my Health care every month and still have a business, is less and less all the time. Talk about looking up a Free Person in the United States of America. Google says, huh, try different wording.
