I couldn’t afford health insurance before Obamacare. After Obamacare, I still can’t afford health insurance, but now the IRS is going to fine me for not being able to afford it.

How can we tax people who can’t buy a product from a website that doesn’t work?

Sen. Pat Roberts has got to be kidding. He, not HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, is the one who should resign for the crummy job he and his congressional co-conspirators are doing.

Where are more calls for Sebelius’ resignation? I guarantee if I had three years to put together a computer system to do absolutely anything and it didn’t work, I’d be fired immediately. There is no excuse for this.

Methinks Roberts and company are jealous that they will not be in the history books as having done an amazing accomplishment for mankind, and the former Kansas governor will.

I wonder how many of the 35 states that declined to set up health insurance exchanges are controlled by Republicans, just like Kansas. Let’s pile it on the federal exchange, hope it fails and blame it on Obama. Nice work, Gov. Brownback.

If they don’t repeal Obamacare, I’m buying a gun. Socialism will come soon after that.

When cutting taxes and school budgets and the other Republican policies fail, they will blame Obamacare. It’s already happening.

Gas prices have dropped 30 cents a gallon since the government “shutdown.” I guess the bureaucrat who plays with gas prices was laid off.

We need to start sending adults to Washington, D.C. The Capitol has become nothing more than a very expensive juvenile facility.

Politicians are always eager to get some face time on television. Wouldn’t it be great if they had to wear a truth-o-meter on their forehead when they are?

People seem to imply that it is difficult to herd cats. That is not my experience. As long as I have food, they will follow me.

If this country and especially the U.S. Postal Service would eliminate some holidays such as “Columbus” Day, they could balance the budget and make money.

On “Columbus Day” let’s have a holiday that honors those who actually discovered America: the Native Americans.
