       Not on him – on us to pressure all to compromise and move on for what’s best for the country.

        That hasn’t exactly been a recipe for success over the last 4 years, what makes you think he and the congress will compromise now?

      No, it’s on the obstructionist GOP to finally respect the will of the country, and stop trying to worsen the country just so they can try to regain power.

    Since this President has repeatedly broken the law, I wouldn’t be surprised of a rigged election. He continues to refuse to work with the “other side”. He pushes his socialist agenda and has done nothing positive in his four years. I guess I would be considered lower middle class, though I’m not sure why. I have not had a raise in three years and because of “Obamacare” I can not afford insurance offered by my employer, if I could I would have to spend $3500 out of pocket before any coverage takes effect. The representatives for the insurance company admit that these extreme price hikes and lack of coverage are because of “Obamacare”. I will probably never own a home because simply, food prices are to high, cost of living is to high, because Obama would rather bet on unproven technology then use the resources at hand. What happened to not raising taxes? I am required to have health insurance, Why? Because it benefits Obama’s base, clearly it doesn’t benefit everyone. They say if you don’t have insurance you will pay a “penalty”. Sorry, that is a tax and the only reason why the law was upheld is because the Supreme Court considers it a tax. I don’t recognise Barak Hussein Obama.

      Soon you will be able to buy insurance for $700, because of Obamcare.!

         Quite ridiculous!

        • Sherman2

          That is the amount that you will pay in taxes if you refuse to buy insurance even though you would still be covered, damn cheap!

    Well I told you so …… the people have spoken, congratulations President Obama!!!

    As a Peace offering I’d like to offer a virtual bucket of doughnuts for any virtual swinging bears that might prefer them to humble pie.
