This poor lady starred in a Koch Brothers (TM) ad, was asked to be a guest of a Tea Partier at the SOTU, and then it turned out that had she (or literally anyone) checked the exchange she would have saved $1,000 a year on her insurance.

It's almost as if there is a whole political machine completely invested in scoring political points no matter the cost to regular people instead of helping them get health care.

*edit*

They couldn't find any real fake victims so they simply hired actors for this attack ad: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2014/02/political-attack-ad-against-louisiana-sen-mary-landrieu-uses-paid-actors/

My God Hddj, if that first link you gave is true, then this is just plain despicable.

I hope someone follows up on that because if true, then that is utterly low.

The Koch Brothers have spent nearly $400 Million fighting against ObamaCare

Lie and confuse, it's the same old play book that they use for GCC, which they have spent nearly $800 million

They are the sponsors and media head masters of the Faux grassroots Tea Baggar group of puppets.

They are the big bucks against everything that was good about America.
Pro-life, prayer in school, NRA, voter restrictions, low taxes for the rich, cut food stamps, cut all safety nets, privatize SS and Medicare, kick the poor off health care insurance, union bashing, low wages, deregulation, repealing environmental standards, etc.

and it all helps them gain more power and more billions to influence anyone they want, like the 5 right wing members of the Supreme Court, which have been seen at their parties.

Basically, they now control the tea Baggar caucus of the House, and 41 votes in the Senate, they will vote for only what their sponsors tell them to vote for, and hence we have lost our Democracy to a couple vile plutocrats outside our elected government.

There is probably a word for it, maybe someone can jog my memory.

Obama, grasped victory out of the hands of the fallen, and is killing soldiers to play politics, currently.

Lol. Some people here are either just trolling or incredibly stupid. Who got us into Iraq and Afghanistan? Who never cleaned up their own little mess there? GW is a bitch for starting something he couldn't finish. I feel sorry for Obama for having to clean it up. No one would do a "good job". That's impossible as a direct result of the way in which Bush went in there.

Also, wtf do you think war is? "killing soldiers to play politics", presented as if its some revelation. Good one.

HighDessertDSucker and TVash immediately come to mind as two of the more limp minded posters on this site. Their(lack of)sound logic is shocking. You really believe all of your links and news sources are legit? WTF...wake up dummies!! Such blind arrogance. Both sides of the fence are bought and paid for by the same people. Learn about how the system works. Enable yourselves with critical thought. All of us are responsible to question those CURRENTLY in charge, not whine about what the previous regime did to us. Has anything really changed in the last 6yrs? The 1% has grown in the last 6yrs. You happy about that? Obama not responsible? Of course he is, that's who put him in charge! Take your Adderall and focus on what's going on around you now. YOU are as much as a part of the problem as any 'Republican'

Ron I'm not bagging on any of your myriad of imaginary friends, I am bagging on you for trotting out such unsubstantiated BS as a means to give your self a pass for the stupid sh#t you say. So your presumed honorary membership to some group gives you more understanding of the plight of those who are actually involved. Yeah right.

And Potatohead, nice nonsense numbnut. Get back to us when intellectual puberty occurs.

Some of the Conservative right wingers here like to bag on DrF (and like minded others) for his persistence in posting here. Well none of them can refute DrF's points so they just slag on him. Calling him names is the best they've got. I'd call it weak sauce but that would be an insult to weak sauce.

For years conservatives preached about the evils of liberalism while enacting the destruction of the middle class and respect for America world wide.

Now that liberal policies are finally getting things somewhat back on track the same hypocrites are preaching that there's no difference between the two parties.

The conservative War on Facts and Education combined with their media machine are the only reason this BS gets any traction.

The GOP, like their Elephant avatar, never forget. And they always want and need to even the score.
Thus we have moronic statements like Solyndra = Halliburton or Deep Water Horizon = Katrina or Lewinsky = Watergate.
It's like ointment to a festering wound if they can but mirror a little of the shame on to others.
We also get mind numbing mantras like They are all the same.

Oh no! Someone morphed my username into an ad hominem and then launched into a generalized rant that comes within a hair's breadth from saying "SHEEPLE!"

"Wake up dummies" was such an astute counterargument to the actual content I posted. Please, share more of your fact based, sharp minded critiques of my critical thinking skills.

poor people aren't poor; they just spend all their money on cable tv and cell phones; if they'd just give up their luxuries, they'd be able to pay for own damn health care!

go ahead, libs, spew your faux-outrage...i'm just reiterating what barry said; listen for yourself:

http://hotair.com/archives/2014/03/12/obama-health-insurance-isnt-expensive-just-cancel-cable-and-phones/


why do libs hate poor people so much?


i know math is hard, but smart people have done it for you:

http://www.nationalcenter.org/NPA656.html


oh yeah, and that "mandate" that barry insisted wasn't a tax until scotus decided it was a tax and that is so important to the law? meh, not so much:

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304250204579433312607325596


i think barry is just hoping to keep postponing the law and hoping hillary will get elected so she can take all the blame when the shite hits the wind turbine
