Not too many years ago I was a Republican --- no longer. I didn't leave them --- they left me, going way right, in my opinion radically right. Actually, the centrist leaning Republicans I grew up with no longer exist. They are now the Tea Party. And the Tea Party doesn't represent me. COUNT ME OUT! But my frustration doesn't end here. Why are we paying congress, Republicans and Democrats, when they totally fail to produce reasonable solutions to our Country's problems. The Affordable Care Act aka Obama Care isn't a new issue. Nor is our pending budget crisis, nor is gay marriage, nor is the dismal state of our food industry. No, our miserable congress and their status quo politics won't change until we force them to make change. Why?? Because money talks louder than good politics. Because our politician's jobs are more important than the livelihood and happiness of their constituents. Take private money out of politics, outlaw lobbyists and we all might have a chance. It is time for the silent majority to be heard. Speak up, speak out NOW!!!!

I am registered as an independent voter, but usually vote republican. After this federal shutdown fiasco, the democrats now have my vote. Obamacare will turn out to be great for the individual consumer, but give it a chance. by the way I also voted for Obama twice, I don't agree with everything he's done, but he has the guts to make some hard decisions in some trying times for our country. We need more leaders in this country and less whiners !!!!

The tax on obamacare will take 18% of your yearly gross income( that means before you pay your federal taxes)...... You will then have to pay a monthly premium payment:: example ::12k yearly income will pay $187.00 PER MONTH... There is no difference in dems or reps except where they spend Your Tax monies... and it doesn't go to you. You think you can trust your government??? just ask an "indian"..fortunately for you, A am an enrolled member of a native american Nation.. the answer is ::Heck No.

I seem recall that it was Ms. Pelosi that said " We have to sign the Bill and then we will read it to find out what it is in it" !! Since when do they sign bills before they read them? I thought it was STUPUD remark when she made it--but I didn't think thet would really do it. Last week SHE was complaining about how much it was going to cost HER for the increase to Insure her Staff. Well, if you had read the Bill BEFORE you passed it--then you would have known !! So would everyone else--They would know how much the Ins. Co. can incease thier Premiums. OUTRAGEOUS !! There should have been limits put in the BILL !! There are some good things--pre-existing condition should always be covered--children who are attending school should be able to stay on the parents policy. I am not a Jon Stewart Fan--never have been, I also watch FOXNEWS because I want to get ALL sides of the news.
