those desiring a more civil discourse won. the right say the ACA was rammed thru congress. Really? they could not vote their will? After a career of budget, alan greenspan said "i was wrong". he said because of greed, private sector economics do not work. if the debt is the big concern, why not try a jobs bill? B.

I am amazed. Why doesn't the Right wing pay it back. They should.
