“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

The treachery of the Affordable Care Act starts to gather speed

By delaying the employer mandate to 2015 while leaving in place the individual mandate for 2014, Obama will have forced millions of Americans to seek government insurance who would otherwise have been covered by their employers' private policies during that year. This will dramatically shrink the policy holders of private insurance, forcing companies to raise rates on existing holders, still further forcing people onto Medicaid rolls.  

Putting private insurance companies out of business while forcing as many Americans onto Medicaid as possible.....exactly as they planned it all along, folks. 

The devious treachery of Obama is as boundless as the abject stupidity of the people who voted for him.

Saavy political move by the democrats. This action takes the number one Republican target off the table.

The Republicans better get their s%^t together.

David, I'm convinced these establishment republicans are the flip-side of the democrat coin. Their protestations over every thing Obama does seem perfunctory and insincere. It's as if they've all agreed how things are going to be in a dark room somewhere and then go out and act their respective roles for voter consumption. Or am I being too cynical?

too cynical? I'm cynical of that concept!
