    @ hamsta as i said previously DO YOUR RESEARCH before you go off about ACA! Im not making it up you can find it for yourself and if you have half a brain and see WHOs benefiting by those amendments and then see which congressional leader is being backed financially by those benefiting you will see the dirty truth!

    Hey @ hamsta, im sure you'll be reading this sometime today. Anyway maybe you and Boehner can become roomies. You guys are like 2 peas out of the same pod. And he might be job hunting very soon. After over 200 years he took it upon hisself to change the rules of the House. Now only he or a republican designee can propose a vote no matter how many House members want that vote. Rule 22~4! What a pompous jerk. Yep you 2 are very much alike.

    That's okay chrissy, I wouldn't mind roommating with Boehnor while you sit next to ObaMe in front of a firing squad. What little wrong Boehnor has done pales in comparison to the multiple treasonous and terrorist acts ObaMe has committed against the citizens of America.

      No thanks banasy, you might need a tissue factory after 2014 and 2016 because the ObaMe administration has the lowest approval rating in history. On a side note, what is wrong with you loony liberals in California? Illegal immigrants have the "right" to practice law in California court? What don't you understand about an illegal immigrant is a FELON? Felons are automatically disbarred under federal law.

      TP rating? 21%. Dog doo has a better approval rating. Tissue?
      Do you understand the difference between State law and Federal law yet? Why not? Do you know that CA props LA up? Why not?

      And Obama can't run again in 2016, so...? Demonrats will keep the WHY until at LEAST 2024. Do you actually look at the approval ratings? GOP is 24%, TP is 21%. And every day that your party holds our economy hostage, it plummets. Tissue?

      And, yes, federal law does overrule. Which is why the ACA is LAW. Deal with it. baby. And do give your TP idiots the clue that they need to use LEGAL means to make a difference.

    Because chrissy capitalism hasn't failed, you liberal socialist are destroying capitalism with socialism. You say it's all in fairness, it's only fair that the useful idiots who put this socialist dictator in office get put in front of the firing squad with him. ObaMecare is illegal, uncon sti tutional and unAmerican. You heard about the food stamp glitch? If you are dependent on the government to feed you that is just a taste of what's to come.Socialism fails every time. Besides, if we didn't execute the useful idiots the socialist dictator would feed the useless unproductive to the gas chmbers anyway. You don't think the Jews were told they would be fed to the gas chamber do you? No, they were told they were going to "take a shower". That's how socialism and communism work every time. What makes you think this time will be any different? You liberals (closet case socialists and communists) are guilty of treason.

      Hayek also wrote that the state has a role to play in economy, and specifically, in creating a "safety net". He wrote, "There is not reason why, in a society which has reached the general level of wealth ours has, the first kind of security should not be guarnteed to all without endangering general freedom: that is:some minimum of food, shelter, and clothing, sufficient to preserve health. Nor is there any reason why the state should not help to organize a comprehensive system of social insurance in providing for those common hazards of life against which few can make adequate provisions.

      Like a shutdown? I think your theory works both ways. Your tea Party ideas even have their failures. Society in general does not understand your views. To understand your views american people in masses would have to read the views form Hayek, Myrdal, and Keynes. Which had taken a lifetime of research, lifetime of observation, and trying to put human nature into a tidy box. But even in Hayek he contradicts his own views in his lifetime. I do not question your patriotism, do not question ours. It will be the common ground of wise thinkers, of people who love their country, have empathy for less fortunate, the watchful ey of its people to regulate its government, and the will to do what is right for all its people that will survive the will of Money, Market, and Regulation.
