Excellent letter!Sad that so many make that a lifestyle by choice and are willing to settle for being owned by the gov't.

Keith, with almost half the country now caught in that mouse trap, it has to make you wonder how that can be when they keep telling us the economy is getting better, unemployment is down and the stock market is thriving. They manipulate the numbers and pat themselves on the back while keeping half the country oblivious by keeping them on their "payroll".

I pay a vast amount of money in taxes which in turn my government gives away to people that insures they stay in power so they can give more of my money away. This is vote buying at it's worst and the more people you get hooked on the government teat the better for them.

So in essence my money is being invested so my political stance is over ridden.

The poor who live a lifetime on govt assistance generally do not vote. So to say these are the people guaranteeing those politicians their jobs is a stretch. Sad to say, but often those most effected by the political process are those least likely to partcipate in it.

Sorry sideliner but groups like Acorn and Move On Dot Org do not cater to working Americans. There main goal is to get people to the booths and instill fear that those evil Republicans are going to take away their taxpayer subsidized lifestyles.

If you are uninsured, and if you try to get insurance through Healthcare dot Gov, the system asks if you want to register to vote.

These programs take money from some people in order to buy votes from others.

Liberals then lie about this ever happening.

Obamacare (ACA) = socialism, and the Democrats will have to own it. It is a sad time for our country and your right, our freedoms are being taken away and capitalism is being detroyed by the Democrats. Obama is a lier about his wonderful plan and Sebelius has been Leeching off of the govenment her entire spoon fed life, it is really disgusting. The democrats should be fired by us at the voting booth.

Stupid letter of the year. I am going to print it out and hang on my wall at work. Thank you. Might as well print out some of these comments while I am at it. The right keeps going off the deep end every day. For the record there are limits to those free phones like no data for instance. But of course you guys are too busy bashing the poor to even research it. Have a nice day. Looks like much needed rain.

Rick424, let us know how you feel when you get cut from your insurance plan okay. The right (yeah, us capitalists, not socialists) finances your liberal giveaway programs Rick, don't forget that. We don't "spit on the poor" (CM Reeder being quoted there), we finance them. Make that day when you get the letter a nice day Rick. Have a nice day and enjoy the rain.

As I said before, for the first time since the early 80s my insurance went down. I have gone to the health care web site an truthfully it looks promising. I will have a nice day thank you and I love the rain.

I call the liberals out for their blatant lies.

Liberals say we "spit on the poor" - lie.

Liberals say we "hate the poor" - lie.

Liberals say we are "racists" - lie.

Liberals say we want anarchy - lie.

Liberals are lowlife liars who cannot defend the fraud, waste and corruption their programs contain.

Liberals are now trying to shift the subject away from the abject failure of Obamacare in its infancy by lying about insurance companies being to blame.
