Republicans have been dominating the media and keeping, one and only one issue in the forefront of America’s consciousness. They are making ObamaCare look lie a good issue for them by using the confusion from the Obama Administration failure to get the web site online on time, their own Republican lies, and Big Insurance lies and scams to generate fear in the American people.

Unless you’re a billionaire, a corporate criminal, or a hatemonger, even if you’re a Republican, the Republican Party dies NOT represent YOU!
