While I'm not convinced most people, especially those who still have jobs, will be able to afford Obama"care", it's apparently a done deal. So, if such is to be forced on the lower and middle class Americans, it MUST also be forced on the upper class, including the so-called "elites" and also including the current resident of the White House and his Mooch, as well as his entire Administration and the entire Legislative and Judicial branches of government. ALL or NONE!

That in itself should tell the Country how wrong this ACA/Obamacare health system is.

They are NOT excluded by anything they did. They CANNOT buy on the exchanges because they already have health insurance. If you have health insurance, you do not buy more insurance from the exchanges.

What are you not understanding? IF you HAVE insurance, then you don't have to buy insurance on the exchanges. The President, Congress, most of the "rich" folks have health insurance so they are not allowed to purchase on the exchanges. If we did let them, then they would be getting preferential treatment and you say you're against treating them different than the average American. So they should not be allowed to purchase on the exchanges.

But it was a matter of "National Security" so we couldn't know the facts, we had to TRUST our President or again, we were "unpatriotic" and made us look bad and divided to the rest of the world.

Sure any law can be but the ACA was reviewed by the Supreme Court (the ones who decide what is and isn't Constitutional) and they ruled that the ACA is indeed Constitutional. So there you have it. 43 VOTES and the Supreme Court uphold the ACA as law. I think you don't fully understand the ACA.

The whole point is that if you DON'T want them to have preferential treatment, then they should NOT be allowed to buy health insurance on the exchanges.

The only thing that Romeny did good when he was the Governor of Massachusetts was Romneycare and the people there are very happy with it. You are listening to a lot of falsehoods about the new healthcare plan. The insurance companies will now have to spend 80% of your premiums on actual healthcare and not big salaries for their CEO's and Administrators. They will no longer be able to drop you if you get sick or have a preexisting condition.

You've either lost your mind in the heat of the argument or you really are and always have been a party liner and you slipped up during your argument like most lier's do! Let me ask you something, do you really and truly believe Obama cares a crap about little ole' you? Obama is "NO" different than "ANY" other politician - have you ever heard the term "WIFM"? Obama Care is Obama's legacy and thinks it's the best thing for America but opt's out for himself and his family?

MT: I believe that you are missing the point of this petition. Context is very important. The point is that laws created "for the people by the people" means just that. Our government should be required to abide by the same set of laws that they themselves have created and deem necessary for us. It's called tyranny.

He can make SUGGESTIONS but it's up to the House to vote on the actual spending and to basically sign the checks.

You're wrong. There are plenty of things he does that I don't like but the ACA is a good thing. Most everything that anyone has posted here negative is a pure lie and you can find the truth for yourself if you just want to read and find it. I read the ACA and it's hard but I took the time to do it. I want people to know the truth. The ACA will help nearly every American. But all the lies that are being told are making people fearful and thinking it's something that it's not.

No, Bush is to blame for the biggest portion. Our biggest expense is Defense. Two wars are not cheap. Bush put both wars on a credit card that came due under Obama. Most of the debt was NOT incurred during 2007, most of it came with the job. That's an indisputable fact, not something that someone made up. The Obama Administration is the lowest spending in modern Presidential history, there are facts to back that up too. Lots of sources tell you that, not just the "liberal" ones.

Now the taxpayers are left with a million dollar plus medical bill and he is dead. I don't want anyone to go without healthcare and this will work. If you already have insurance then be grateful but folks need to know this is not the boogeyman, this is a GOOD thing.

So everyone shouldn't have access to healthcare because it might be too much for some Doctors to handle? Their reimbursements will be the same that they have negotiated with private companies to get, as it is the private companies that are selling insurance policies on the exchange.

It's NOT taken out of your schools or mine. Any student is free to carry a Bible, to pray to be a Christian. What cannot happen is that any member of the STAFF cannot initiate prayer or worship.

If you want our Government to follow the rules of a religion maybe Iran might be a better choice for you. They can tell you no abortion, EVER, not even if the mother will die or your ten year old was raped. They'll kill you if you are found to be gay. Do you really think that Jesus would want you to be so judgemental of others? My Jesus treated the prostitute as an equal, he did not shun her. He fed the poor he didn't tell them to get a job you lazy bum. The Government is not your religion, that's where you are confused.

The Bible also says "judge not". We don't get to pick and choose what verses we agree with there either.

Actually I don't care whether he's a Christian or not, he certainly isn't a Muslim, he doesn't behave in any way like a Muslim. Do you really think any Muslim would support Gay Marriage like he does?

He doesn't behave as a Muslim would. He has declared himself a Christian and in as much as any one else here claims to be a Christian, I see not one reason to not take the man at his word. He attends Christian Church. He took a oath of Office on the Holy Bible (twice), he supports gay and lesbian equality, he supports a womans right to choose, seems pretty mainstream Christian to me. Hey, I even heard he eats bacon! Imagine that!

I would know he attends Christian church because every move he makes is reported on. I've seen him and his family walking into Church myself, right here locally.

I guess since Fox doesn't show video or report on it, it doesn't exist right?

You're blaming Obama for that now? You are truly crazy, how was that Obamas fault? And crashing planes into towers is exactly the sort of thing Muslim extremists would do.

He's not Muslim. He's said it often enough, there is nothing in his background to suggest worships as a Muslim. Everything in fact points to him worshiping as a Christian. AND the truth is what would it matter what religion he is? Our Constitution guarantees the right to worship as one sees fit.
