    Of course, I am right.

    Don't be a fool. I quoted directly from Scalia's dissent.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I then discussed Kavanaugh's lengthy argument with the opposing lawyer during the hearings where Kavanaugh pressed his argument that the penalty, written into the law as a penalty was a tax.

    It is Kavanaugh's willingness to rewrite a statute to make it constitutional that makes him a risky choice. In my opinion, he will stab us in the back just as Justice Roberts did. We don't need another Roberts when we could have another Scalia or Thomas.

    The ACA is not nor ever was a free market solution to the cost of health care insurance. It is inexplicable how anyone can say it is "the free market at its best". It shut out the free market.

    It looks like Kavanaugh is going to be a solid constitutionalist on the court.

    If I were the republicans, I'd be worried about Republicans Susan Collins (pro choice), Lisa Murkowski (pro choice), Rand Paul (libertarian views on government interference) and Shelly Moore Capito (Mix record on abortion) as possible no votes. I realize there are no guarantees on how people will vote, but it's interesting to compare the possibilities.
    This post is a joke right? Donnelly votes against this nominee he can move home now and avoid the Christmas rush. Indiana is worrying about Roe v Wade.

    Heitkamp is from a state that would ban abortion tomorrow id it could. They want her if she votes against this nominee? Capito is also from W. Va. I'm thinking she wants re-elected the next time she runs. Doug Jones might like being a Senator. He has little chance of re-election bit none if he votes against no. Alabama isn't electing a pro- abortion Senator. Paul will come around in the end.


    Chuckles picked the wrong fight. He is going to look stupid.

    Yes, and it wasn't by law. The free market made the other companies take a hike. This is also the biggest fault to the ACA. It wasn't supposed to work to begin with.

    Every major company has Medicare Plus. it isn't required and the free market determined it was viable.

    He's the choice Trump has made. He isn't going to change his mind. You screw with Trump at your peril. Vote his choice down and piss him off is always a good idea.

    I voted for Trump and what he said he'd do. He has more than met my expectations. You feel whatever way you like. You are not required to be right and you aren't.

    Talk about risks? Trump was a risk. If he had been playing us we'd be up $#@! creek.

    What? Can you actually read? You said the government decided who you had to buy from. It did no such thing. We ended up with just the two because the free market allowed the others to leave. How much simpler can I make it?

    Kavanaugh can be rejected by the Senate and should be. We can do better and we should do better.

    I have given you solid fact-based reasons for my opinion. You have not been able to respond with a counter.

    If Kavanaugh gets on the court we can expect him to stab us in the back just as Roberts did. When the time comes I am sure you will be among the ones who wonder how it happened.
