Right! they had previews of Obama speaking about Obamacare. Guess that is when the theather emptied?

Because it would have answered the OP's question without having to post a new thread.

And why would anyone want to watch the drama crap on Fox news? What a pack of less than intelligent people attempting to pander to the sheep , all the untruths that if said enough times might stick on the wall and then try to pretend it's real news.
Yes I have watched it a few times, just enough to know that the network is a scam . actually, too much of a bad thing can make one sick to your stomach , so, I would warn any of the less informed to take all they say in little doses , better yet, just turn them off. Same goes for your leader and spokesperson good ol Rush Limpbaugh. It's real strange that there are some smart people that are Republicans, so why do they put up with this crap, is a real wonder that they have let the far right wing nuts run the show. I can only guess someone out there finds it all entertaining. There are better things to watch, more entertaining, and more real truth and talk like John Stewart and Ed Shultz.To name a few. Why don't you folks just stop supporting the vert thing that will bury you in the end anyway. Have you all forgot about the Moral Majority ?

I wonder why obama isn't crowing about Obamacare??

Anyone who would make a comment such as the quote above doesn't get out of their cave often. The President and others in the administration have been talking about the Congressional plan to revamp healthcare loud enough for anyone who wants to hear, to hear it.

I say we let the 'crackers' have their way. Exempt them from the healthcare reform. Let them pay full-price for healthcare. Drop their children from parents' healthcare coverage earlier than 2, as it was before the legislation. Allow insurance companies to withdraw coverage for catostrophic illnesses. Eliminate the free annual wellness exams and testing. Don't allow them to take their insurance from one employer and allow the new employer's insurance provider deny them coverage for pre-existing conditions. And when they go to a hospital uninsured and seek attention for something serious, let them sit outside the door, deny them coverage, and let them die there wallowing in their freedom of choice. I'm all for it. Cull the herd.

It's not just Obama. This was the biggest legislation passed, well forced, onto the US in some time. You won't see any democrats even hinting about this in their campaing and there is one reasnon for that..........it's a complete mess. From buying votes to pass it to screaming about how we have to pass it before we know what is in it. See no evil, hear no evil. They want to pretend it never happened.

What have they, the democrats, been squealing about?? First it was the evil rich, then onto how republicans want to kill old people and hate women, now they jump all over this shooting in Florida to try and get rid of some gun laws. They don't want anyone to even think about healthcare or the economy. They think people are stupid. Well their supporters are but the rest won't be falling for this nonsense. Right now we see the squealers with the biggest mouths put all over the TV. The silent majority will speak when the time comes.

Here comes the "you don't know anything about anything" line to attempt to win an arguement. Just admit Obama-care is a total disaster and a black-eye to his administration. If it isn't maybe he should campaign on it, if its so great and popular.

No you are wrong, and you have just proved it to us and to yourself.. You are like all the others from the Right, No see, only use the talking points they give you on those little cards, or, like Sara, you can write on your palms.
Another wrong statement, there is no "Obama Care". The bill for equality in Healthcare was supported first by the Republicans in committee.. Actually they were for single payer, which would have been the right thing to vote for. Its working all over the world, and it will work here,. So, yes, there are a lot of corrections, holes, and new add on ideas. WE are all entering new ground for this Country. Most polls have always shown the People want equal and fair health care. They do not want the insurance companies to get rich on the backs of hard working people. So far what has been decided , no one wants to take away, Republican or Dems. We all know what they are., keeping your kids on your policy longer, the ability for insurance companies to reject you coverage because of pre existing conditions. ...there is a lot more, that will take effect, and not soon enough. There is also quite a few that are open ended, and needs to be settled. had we gone for Single Payer from the start all this talking points thing would be mute by now.
