...how does one start a Whole New Congress Movement? We could start with rallies in or marches to the public squares of major cities all asking people to commit to throw their Senators and Representatives out of office in the next election.
We need to throw a scare into our Senators and Representatives.
I'm with you but let's not forget who is really at fault here.
Was that intended as a list of those we need to toss out?
I can't even read those signatures. That must be how they avoid detection.
"The Republicans Standing Their Ground"
Stay the course!! No matter how wrong it is...
Those are the congressmen who signed the letter so yes,they definitely need to go. I can make out my congressman's name (Tim Wahlberg). If your congressmen is a berserk teabagger their name is probably on there. Obviously John Boehner considered this a good plan. "Let's shut down government until our demands our met!". Just disgusting.
I think Obamacare will be a big strain on the Federal budget, at least at first. Later on, when the population becomes healthier due to prevention, it will be less so. Hopefully, our government will fund Obamacare by throwing the status quo out the window and by taking a long hard look at overspending and wasteful spending on the military, expensive pork barrel riders to legislation, and other similar measures.
The more I watch it, the more I hate it. And I thought I'd already reached my limit
American voters are divided on Obamacare, with 45 percent in favor and 47 percent opposed, but they are opposed 58 - 34 percent to Congress cutting off funding for the health care law to stop its implementation.
Republicans are fond of saying "the majority of Americans don't like or want Obamacare," without mentioning that a fair percentage of those who oppose it, oppose it because they wanted it to cover more or prefer a single-payer system. It's not that they really love the pre-Obamacare health care system.
One of the biggest problems with Obamacare has been that when it was first proposed, the Pres should have gone on national tv and thoroughly explained it. He didn't, and a lot of the less-educated people who oppose it, do so because they really don't understand it.
Agreed. One of the mysteries of his administration, as far as I'm concerned, is how he got this landmark bill passed and then never really bothered to sell it effectively to the American people. And when defending it, his administration's PR arm leaves some of the hardest-hitting points unsaid, such as "Well, Republicans, explain to all the Americans who just got healthcare why they shouldn't have it."
They could also point out that "You may have health insurance today, but there's no guarantee you'll have it tomorrow, unless the Affordable Health Care Act is in place."
