The only thing they are sorry about is that they got caught lying.

They have no sincere intentions of doing the right thing, ever.

Both liars but Clinton was more sincere then Obama..

Obamas apology was just more of the blame game..

I am truly sorry if folks didnt understand ...

Not an apology.. Its another blame..

If Obama has convinced himself he didn't lie, that borders on being a pathological liar... ...

not only do repugs never make a mistake but they never apologize for the many wrongs that they do. I would certainly like a sincere apology for spending our national treasure, dollars and living men and women on an unnecessary war in Iraq, but will never get it.

why should the president apologize for the corrupt insurance companies selling policies to people when they knew they were junk and would not comply with ACA? Once again, the Minot Daily News finds ignorance blissful.

Not one Liberal on here is upset about their healthcare costs going up, they think the President is right on. Tells me something, not one Liberal on here pays for their health coverage. Why are you all not upset with your costs going up? Right, it doesn't effect you, makes sense now.

I refused to vote on this one, as I can't judge the sincerity of apologies given by serial liars (aka most politicians).

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry your PRIVATE INSURANCE COMPANY -- who i have no control over in the free market economy you say you love so much -- stopped taking your money in exchange for a BS plan that's ultimately forcing the rest of us to pay your hospital bills when you and your snot-nosed kids get sick.

I'm really sorry.

Jeez, more of this? Yesterday, I was asked to compare Obama to Nixon. Now it's Obama and Clinton.

It it out of morbid curiousity that I will be back tomorrow to see what the next comparison will be. These questions sound like they were written by someone who forgot about their deadline and cranked out whatever to make sure something got on the website.

Vertias are you really ignorant enough to "think" for one minute that the cost you pay for Obamacare this year will be the same next year? Do you really think Obamacare is a set price???????Forever and ever?????

REALLY!!!!!!!!!!

You think he is giving you a set price.. Are you out of your tree?????

Wow I thought you had more smarts then that!!!!!

Newsflash: government costs always go up.

Military toilet seats priced at $60 will seem like a bargain, as the government takes over more and more of the "healthcare marketplace."

It's already not looking real good. The great majority of folks signing up qualify for medicaid (gov't pays). How will the increase in medicaid expenditures be paid for? The administration believes that by getting more young and healthy people--those able to pay real money for a policy--to sign up.

Obamacare is a faulty law. Republicans should continue efforts to repeal this law and not try to fix it, period. Democrats should own this law, all by their lonesome, period. It was 100% Democrat-passed - they own it.

Talking points (and apologies) don't resonate as well when the reality of a worldview's policy is biting.

1st off I'm all for National Defense. But we have 400 overseas Bases. Just 2 alone in Japan, and Germany cost us 1 Billion a year, WHY? The Cold War has been over how long? Its time to close Down 90% of those overseas Bases and save us Billions, which we could use right here in the good old USA. And don't any of you none serving chicken hawks give me lip. If you have a DD214 like I do I will listen.

"Since 1999, health insurance premiums for families rose 131%, the report found, far more than the general rate of inflation, which increased 28% over the same period. Overall, health care in the United States is expected to cost $2.6 trillion this year, or 17% of the nation’s economy, according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.(Time)"

Price of gas in 1999, $1.17 Price of gas in 2013, $3.38 Next argument for prices rising... BTW, I have a DD214.

Place FEMA Trailers every 30 Miles along southern boarder of USA, troops that come home from closed overseas Base used for Border security. Place Tanks along border, along with helicopters, and Land Mines, and military will have Loaded Arms.Every 10 feet signs will be Posted that read deadly Force will be taken on ALL who try to Cross. Problem solved.

Obama gets so much grief. Couldn't be because he is black?

Or could he be because he is arrogant and very unqualified to be in a leadership position.

And for the record he doesnt have a DD214!!!!

"Democrats will own an attempt to bring about Health Care Reform that will save American lives...And the Republicans will own the fact they have done nothing...Not a thing!"

I like words, always have. I've seen one word in particular see more usage this year than in the past. That word? "Feckless"...

It means "effect-less" which describes what has happened between the theory behind Obamacare and the reality of the Obamacare rollout.

Just not what it was supposed to be, eh?

When I once brought up HSA's (Health Savings Accounts) as an alternative, one lib was vocal in his derision, but wouldn't explain why he thought it wouldn't be good. Typical.

But isn't this the point? Libs don't want to discuss alternatives to Obamacare or single-payer. It seems their universe-view won't accept alternatives for people that they, the libs, can't control.

Do they think people are incapable of making decisions about their healthcare? Do they want it to look t
