I support gun rights and hate Obamacare, but there is no reason that a gun provision should be in a bill about healhtcare. The fact that nobody knew everything that was in the Obamacare bill when it was passed is absolutely despicable. How can you vote for something when you don't know what is in it? The federal government and most of the politicians in it are corrupt and/or incompetent.

Harry Reid flip flopped??? Didn't he accuse Mitt of doing that? Democrats don't do that. Yes,circumstances do cause people to rethink their stand, but you won't see this reported in the media!

I don't know what you are referring to as flex account. If that is another name for a cafeteria plan or HSA (Health Savings Acounts), starting Jan 1 2013 Obamacare caps those at $2500.00. He doesn't like the fact that private insurance companies allow people to choose their healthcare options. He also slipped in a tax of 2 percent on Medical Device Manufacturing Companies, an increase in the capital gains tax, and it excludes congress, President Obama and his family, and many of his top donors from it. I don't know what a capital gains tax has to do with healthcare, that still befuddles me. I hope you can get your medications you need, but it doesn't sound to me like "Obamacare" will help you anytime soon.

Regarding Harry Reid's action, here is a new flash for those who have not closely followed his political career.

In the past the Senator has always been a 2nd Amendment pro-gun rights supporter and has voted that way. But he has never been vocal about it, likely because it does not fit the mantra of being a liberal Democrat.

He also has been anti-abortion and a death penalty supporter.


Thank you uncle Harold! Now hopefully we can get more guns and ammo and the prices will drop a little.
