@ Gildas. You are right, I jumped to the wrong conclusion about your comments. My apologies.

Gildas: Just to finish his statement which is taped to my desk: "The government will take from the 'haves' and give to the 'have nots.' Both have lost their freedom. Those who 'have,' lost their freedom to give voluntarily of their own free will and in the way they desire. those who 'have not,' lost their freedom because they did not earn what they received. They got 'something for nothing,' and they will neither appreciate the gift nor the giver of the gift." Howard W. Hunter, from "The Law of the Harvest" - Devotional address at BYU.

Yes, lets go back to the good old days when parents who didn't have enough money gave their children up to others to raise, old people ate canned cat food, poor people died of disease because they couldn't afford a doctor, etc. After all, it's way more important that I keep every penny that I make than that poor people get any assistance at all. After all, they are probably lazy and deserve it. Well, if I see a "good one", I'll give them $20 or $100 and feel good about it, but as a society, we should not ever collectively do anything to help anyone out. (Says the typical Tea Party conservative)

You understand, Wonder, that it's the conservatives who give of their money, much more than the liberals? Libs are happy to have government take from you and they will decide how to portion it out.

So spare me the remarks about the Tea Party, you have no idea what they do.

Ms. Pelosi said the ACA would create 4 million jobs while the CBO says it will give incentive for 2 million to quit working and get a government subsidy. The ACA does not save each family $2500 or "bend the cost curve down," as many as 30 million people will not be covered with a medical plan and you cannot necessarily keep your doctor if you like her/him. Those facts do not support a victory lap for Mr. Obama.
