In its first year, ObamaCare needs seven million enrollees, three million of them healthy and under age 35.
Is the count of enrollees still at zero?   :pondering:

Believing the American media is a little like putting your trust in Heinrich Himmler. :chairbang:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

So why didn't the GOP (as some of us begged) stand back and make Obamacare the issue. Instead, we listened to Ted Cruz and let him make the shutdown the issue.

Nolte is completely wrong.  Obamacare's approval numbers are now up to 50%, courtesy of this ridiculous shutdown. 

You can bet this is the last time the GOP follows Cruz ANYWHERE.

I wouldn't bet any money on that if I were you.

This is the last time the GOP will shutdown the government in our lifetimes.

In my humble opinion YOU just outed yourself with that last sentence!

You are nothing but a troll and I'm done with you.

The GOP did not "shut the government down" in this instance for sure and likely not in the past either.

I haven't seen a single person interviewed in the media, including those with pre-existing conditions, who has made the claim that his or her insurance is less today under Obamacare than it was before Obamacare.  Now, I assume the MSM is out there searching high and low for at least one such person, so I have to conclude that the person does not exist.

Obamacare is obviously everything we said it would be: a costly, bureaucratic program that ends up costing everyone more money, delivering less in terms of medical care, and pushing the country over the cliff as a place that heretofore stood for individual freedom. 

If that isn't something worth taking a stand for, I don't know what is.
