Signs of guts in comedyland? They’re actually daring to criticise the Messiah’s policies?

Now those London bookies need to start a pool on who will be the first comedian to actually make a joke about Obama’s drug use. Hasn’t happened yet.

News flash Jimmy!
7 million out of 320 million is not as success.
It is an abject failure.

That is 313 million people saying **** your mandate!

For talking to lefties in general -

“You’re going to confiscate my property against my will

and give it to someone else because in your opinion they need it more than I do,

and you’ll jail me or shoot me if I refuse to participate,

and you consider yourself morally better for doing so?”

I would suggest that the majority of those 7 million are on Medicaid.
We already had Medicaid.
Obamacare is a debacle.

It’s amazing how much of something you can give away when someone else is paying for it.

I am sure we will never learn the real numbers. How many paid? How many US citizens? How many of these are subsidized? We were told 40,000,000 were without insurance? And, millions more lost it? So a net loss and a trillion dollars later and this is what counts as success.

How many people signed up for it that didn’t have to? How many people who already had insurance looked at it, decided obamacare is better, and switched?

Last I read, 83% are subsidized and 20% of the 17% haven't paid a premium. That means about 952,000 have signed up and actually paid something.

The net gain is a big negative.

And the signs remain in the ER...no one turned down according to Federal Law. Why sign up??

I could sell dog shit to 7 million people if I could fine them 1% of their salary and stick the IRS on them if they didn't buy ...

I'm not against government...

I'm against totalitarian control freaks...(who just happen to be democrats.)

I'm against white liberal elite thugs and the black culture that props them up...(who just happen to be democrats.)

I'm against liberal elites bullies who trade citizenship with criminals for votes...(who just happen to be democrats.)

I'm against a press that can't see the difference between people signing up for a 'program' voluntarily and citizens being fined and bullied if they don't sign up.(who just happen to be democrats.)

I know of five in one company.

Sold because of 42M uninsured, celebrated because of 7M? reported = success?
