Democrats and Republicans one and the same on the county council. Both = UN Agenda. More GovernmentRead More control to push everyone where they want to place them.Time for Democrats to wake up to the fact that their heart to really help people have turned into only helping the elite and time for the Republicans to wake up to the fact that they are also only helping the elite.

I think a problem overlooked frequently is the lack of livable wages and income inequality. RaisesRead More and bonus for workers have not kept up with the rate of inflation, executive pay has more than tripled in the last 10 years. Donna Masterson

If they plan on going then they plan on voting for it, unless of course they don't need their voteRead More to pass it then they might act like they are fiscally conservative. Heh, Democrats and fake Republicans ever think of Job creation?Oh no of course not that may somehow empower the people.

A nice neat explanation of this "TAX" in disguise of a penalty--- This is Not aRead More "Penalty"--- It is a "TAX". Collected on your income tax returns filed in 2015. It is a TAX because that's how the supreme court approved this mandate. The only way obamacare became constitutional is by Justice Roberts labeling it a TAX. (Even though the law passed congress as a penalty) Another one of those lies of this President. The actual law called it a penalty. So, you all are paying a TAX. THE LARGEST TAX INCREASES IN HISTORY WILL BE OBAMACARE. (Over $1,000 per year) COMING! Every man woman and Child will pay this tax. Or you buy insurance and become another Welfare recipient disguised as "Health care rights". Those only making $19,000 per year will pay it. (And Mr O said he would never RAISE taxes on those making under $250,000. Does anyone want to refute this? An Excellent explanation of this Government mandate. (Disguised as a Penalty)

This article states: "One worry is that the lure of "free" may tempt people to signRead More up for a plan that isn’t right for them." WHAT? How could anything "free" not be right? Let me suggest the reason insurance companies are not promoting "free" is because IT's NOT FREE! DUH!!! Having to sign up for anything "free" leaves me wondering how many people are really paying for it. Free insurance does not get you "health care". Only a Doctor or Hospital or Drug RX mfgr can give you that. This is like getting a Car Free ---but without the motor. We all await the big long wait periods standing in line to get your "Free" heart transplant or Free surgery as society scrambles to pay more for VIP surgery service. Pay more-Get to the front of the line or the game of musical chairs is what the health care industry is transforming to. We all know how long the lines become when something is "Free" don't we?. 2nd class health care is right around the corner. Most of you reading this will soon experience the loss of your own employers health insurance as many employers will send you to this "free" health insurance and gladly pay the $2,000 annual cost for your "free" 2nd class health care. Good luck on finding the Doctor who would service those free Bronze plans. Finally, does anyone really believe someone who cannot afford to buy health insurance today,could afford to pay anything for any health care? NO! 7 million Healthy people needed to sign up just to support the health bills for those freebies. What happens when most of those healthy people start having major health bills? More TAXATION to support the system. More and more Taxation until every one of you work only to pay for another's health expenses. No regard for sex, drinking,drug habits, driving lifestyles having any cost factor. It's Free and we all live in a free do anything lifestyle. Someone else will pay for it. What a great country this USA has become. Gullible sheep you have all become. Lured is an appropriate description of what is taking place in this fiasco. When will we start seeing the truth articles stating the massive $trillions of dollars "FREE" will cost all of society. (Taxing the businesses will eventually certainly be paid by YOU!) So, the President will blame the Cereal companies and bad insurance companies or Big-OIL as they raise prices to pay for this "FREE" health care. How stuck-on-stupid gullible uninformed Americans can survive this mess is beyond explanation. This is America and those Mean Rich people will still raise their product prices to actually have YOU pay for your Free health premiums.

Gerrymandering I think undoes your argument totally. These elections are not a true measure of theRead More voters desire when gerrymandering gives one result, but when statewide offices go to the other party, i.e. the lines cannot be redrawn due to the census to favor the party in control of the legislature. I know to many people that hate aca until they can keep their just graduated but unemployed 24 year old on their insurance. They are not thanking Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan, Roy Blunt or Ann Wagner.. Besides, ACA was originally a republican idea. What made them turn against it when they could have taken credit for it.

Alexis: ACA was Not a Republican passed Law. Not one Republican member of congress voted for theRead More Law. Please get your facts straight. An "Idea" is not a law. The idea you are confused with was to "reform Medical industry". The ACA has no similarity to what this country needed. It is a ploy for all the People to become "slaves" and turn over almost every penny we make to the Govt. That, Miss Alexis ,is what "Progressive Liberal Democratic" Parties are all about. Children being able to stay on Parent's plans is a Lure. It costs to do that. Did you know that all those parent's plans went up in Premium costs. Just who do you think pays for that. Their employer? NO! Employers pay the costs, but increase their product prices!!!! WHICH MEANS???? YOU PAY FOR IT IN EVERYTHING YOU BUY. Watch for coming Inflation! You ain't seen nothing yet. Better hold on to your wallet. In the words of Paul Revere. The "I" is coming.
