Answering a question with a question...

That's one way to play Deflect-O-Rama.

Was the fact they stated the cost would be higher one of them?

Was the fact they said you could not keep your own Doctor one of them?

The lies came out of Ovomits mouthh Guess you cannot even figure that out..

Rajjj (the guy who gets a government handout)

How could the Republicans lie about Obamacare? Its still being written and changed by Obama day in and day out..

As of yesterday the law as changed aginst by your lord and master..

Which just goes to show if your willing to give Obama the right to change laws at will with no input from the Congress then the Republicans will have the same rights when they take over and they can just throw the law out..

Hows that grab you lefty people.. Every example Obama is using to rewrite laws is now set in stone..

Republicans can undo all the BS he has dumped on us without ever going to Congress..

In 30 years just remember which President started this Dictatorship!!!!

ovomitlied lied.

And the right never lied about the ACA. Nope. Not even once.

If ovomitlied could just see himself objectively for just one second he would log off and never return...unless he's getting paid by the word.

"In the hours working up to the government shutdown on Sept. 30, Republican members of the House Rules Committee were developing a strategy to keep a clean CR off the floor, guaranteeing the government would remain shut down."

House changed the rules too: "Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), presiding over the chamber, told Van Hollen that the rule he was asking to use had been "altered" and he did not have the privilege of bringing that vote to the floor. In the ensuing back and forth, Chaffetz said the recently passed House Resolution 368 trumped the standing rules. Where any member of the House previously could have brought the clean resolution to the floor under House Rule 22, House Resolution 368 -- passed on the eve of the shutdown -- gave that right exclusively to the House majority leader, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia.

"The Rules Committee, under the rules of the House, changed the standing rules of the House to take away the right of any member to move to vote to open the government, and gave that right exclusively to the Republican Leader," said Van Hollen. "Is that right?"

So centerish, aside from telling us how you (again) found a "hater" on the blog, can you tell us if you agree with the Senate Democrats' nuclear option?

I open the blog and the first one out is the biggest hater and liar on the blog. Every sentence starts with Obama and ends with hatred. For an out state blogger who is retired, but runs a business 14 hours a day, but blogs ten hours a day on many different sites, you sure know how to spread it around. Let me see, medicare, social security, government pension... yep you are sooooo good at hate.

Obama is the most radical Marxist we have ever had in the White House; but he did not run as the radical Marxist:

Obama decried Bush's Federal Deficits as "unpatriotic" and then hex-tupled the deficit.

Obama decried the lack of civility in Politics, then told us to "get in people face" about ObamaCare.

Obama said he would post all new legislation on the web, then ObamaCare was passed late at night, and as air-head Nancy Pelosi said, "we will have to pass the bill before we know what's in it"

Obama lied about ObamaCare, of course.

Obama said we should transcend black and white division, then Obama went on to appoint race-baiting radical Eric Holder as Attorney General, both Obama and his stooges play the race card at any criticism.

As of November 2013, President Obama’s nominees had faced 79 votes to end debate (called "cloture" votes), compared to just 38 during the preceding eight years under George W. Bush. However, most of those cloture votes successfully ended debate, and therefore most filibustered nominees cleared the filibuster hurdle; Obama won Senate confirmation for 30 out of 42 federal appeals court nominations, compared with Bush's 35 out of 52. Regarding President Obama's federal district court nominations, the Senate approved 143 of 173 as of November 2013, compared to George W. Bush's 170 of 179, Bill Clinton's 170 of 198, and George H.W. Bush's 150 of 195. Filibusters were used to block (at least temporarily) 20 Obama nominations to U.S. District Court positions, compared to 3 times in previous U.S. history; Republicans ultimately allowed confirmation of 19 out of 20.
