The message for Democrats from this week's special election for a U.S. House seat in Florida was clear: Talking about a fix for obamacare will not move voters. Democrats are going to have to do it.
Democrat Alex Sink had plenty of advantages in the special election in a district based in Pinellas County: high name recognition, more campaign cash than her opponent, a district that obama carried twice and an opponent who had been a, um, lobbyist.
But Republican David Jolly said he would vote to repeal obamacare. Sink said she wanted to change or delay elements of the law. Voters said the law was one of the most important issues facing the country ... and they elected Jolly.
Democrats, you need more than vague promises to repair this unwieldy and unpopular law. You need to work with Republicans — yes, Republicans — to fundamentally redefine it.
From the disastrous online rollout, to the thousands (thousands? How about millions) of policy cancellations, to the sticker shock over insurance costs (let's not forget outrageous deductibles and out of pocket expenditures), to the sudden squeeze on doctor and hospital networks, to the legally questionable administration-ordered changes and delays in the law, people have seen its profound flaws. . .(Why don't they just say obamacare sucks?)
Hacker - What is the enrollee count?
Sebelius - I think it's 4,2 million
Hacker - How many of the enrollees actually paid their premium?
Sebelius - I don't know
Hacker- How many of the enrollees already had health insurance?
Sebelius - I don't know
Hacker - How many of the enrollees paid their premiums for January, February and March
Sebelius - You have to pay every month?
Hacker - How many times has obama changed the law single handedly as if there was no legislative branch of the government?
Sebelius - What's a legislative branch of government?
Hacker - What gives obama the right to change the law at will?
Sebelius - Uh duh, it's called obamacare
Hacker - You're pretty stupid, huh?
Sebelius - Yeah, but Pelosi is proud of me.

And the lib loons in Congress stay up all night to discuss global warming. Wow, talk about being out of tune ! !
Meanwhile, obama is working on plans for his fourth vacation of the year.
Apple users have taken to Twitter and the company's website's forums to report weaker battery life after installing an update for their iPhones and iPads that was released this week.

The clown really said it. It's on tape. You can be sure you will see it more as November approaches.
End of message.
So, soup, the democrat loss in Florida's 13th congressional district shows the country is turning blue? You poor pathetic genetic freak. LOL
obama won the election in this district the last two presidential elections. Clinton was down there campaigning for the loser. The loser outspent the winner by 3 to 1. The loser didn't vote for obamacare but was found to be attached to it merely because she is a democrat. These irrefutable facts guarantee there were no champagne corks being popped in democrat gatherings. LOL
Yes, obama did make that all a waste, didn't he? Failure to secure the peace will be the clown's logo throughout history. GOP drives the #$%$ out, obama let's em back in. They must not have seen the lines obama drew. LOL
As for pollution, I believe that is what you meant when you referred to the planet as a toxic waste dump, I find this amusing. First it was global warming. That didn't work and then you nuts called it climate change. That isn't working so now we are going to make pollution the religion of the day. Lib loons are insane, ya know.

That’s more than twice the annual Social Security deficit. But who cares about the seniors when the world is about to end unless a whole bunch of campaign donors and their companies get piles of taxpayer money.
What could you do with 120 billion dollars? It’s enough money to buy an iPad for every kid in school, pay for a months worth of gas for every American or give a $323 tax rebate to every American.
It would be more than enough to revive the space program or actually fund the military.
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Wednesday at a hearing on the Defense Department’s Fiscal Year 2015 budget that obama has wasted $120 billion on global warming over the past five years – money that would be better spent on the military.
“I’ve been working on this for quite some time … In the last five years, between 2009 and 2014, the president has spent $120 billion on the environmental agenda, mostly global warming, climate and that type of thing,” said Inhofe. “And in that respect, if you’ll just take the amount that was not authorized by Congress — and I’m talking about the environmental agenda, you could actually buy 1,400 F-35s.”
But who needs jets. They’re outdated technology like horses and bayonets. Instead our leaders have mastered the fine art of drawing red lines and then pretending that no one ever crosses them.
Yet, the out of tune lib loons in Congress spent a whole night in the chamber to discuss climate change. And now ya know why the job market sucks.

obamanomics: For five years now, obama has been telling Americans that we "have a long way to go" before the country will see a return to prosperity. Just how long does he expect us to wait?
Do a search of the White House website for "long way to go" and you come up with hundreds of hits, most of them involving obama or someone in his administration counseling patience on economic growth.
Now, it might have made sense in mid-2009 to say that recovery from a deep recession will take time. After all, the recovery had just begun.
But to still be saying it in March 2014?
obama has now spent more than 1,870 days pleading with the public for forbearance on the economy, with no end in sight.
(In a nutshell, the clown doesn't have a clue.)
