*Take Action and sign petition for Congress --

On this day 48 years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed Medicare and Medicaid into law, providing health security to millions of families in every corner of the nation.

In three days House Republicans are scheduled to hold their 40th vote to repeal Obamacare. Of course, they’re also still trying to eliminate Medicare and Medicaid as we know them.

We need to tell Republicans enough is enough: Hands off Medicare. Hands off Medicaid. Hands off Obamacare.

We can’t let the tea party take over Congress and take away our health care.

Before Congress leaves Washington for the August recess, tell your representative to stop messing with Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare.

Thanks for joining with us -

Please sign and share - Thank you

Jeez o pete, what part of "leave it alone" do they not understand? The whole lot of them might just as well go on vacation - again - and stay there for all the things they are accomplishing.

Do they have a goal of holding the vote more times than Medicare has anniversaries?

The GOP states it wants to save the taxpayer money, yet these antics have cost the taxpayers more money.

The Republi/baggers are so despicable ! They don't want us to have anything. They are so greedy that they want it all for themselves, and we pay for it. We pay their wages, their insurance, their ample retirement, while they deny the same to us. They have done nothing for us. All they are doing is wasting time by running out the clock. They should not be taking the time off (that we also pay for while they do nothing) until they do something to actually EARN the time off. Geez, people -- VOTE THEM OUT !

The Republicans have been trying to overturn all of the Great Society legislation since it was passd. Unable to win decisive majorities, increasingly unable to even agree among themselves and function, with huge disapproval ratings and a gaggle of hoof-in-mouth demagogues shooting themselves in the foot, They have perfected the art of governing by extortion and obstruction. They have abandoned their own constituents, even those who still buy into their drag-America-back-to-the 13th century philosophy, in favor of legislating morality few find acceptable and selling the country to the large multi-national corporations. In pursuing these three key issues,amid all of the cheesy theatrics and overblwon symbolsim, they should find their comeupance in a humiliating defeat and please God, McConnell and the rest of the rabid right sinks into the swamp of their own arrogance and antiquated morality.

Do you remember the three monkeys who see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil?
Weill, the Republican monkeys have been trained, by their handlers, to see no compassion, hear no compassion and speak no compassion.

Jun 20, 2013 ... (Reuters) - U.S. insurers will pay $500 million in rebates to employers and individuals this summer due to Obamacare. I'll betcha none of the "complainers" will refuse the refunds.
People don't READ what is in it for them....all they know is what they hear on FOX TV of what the GOP congress tells them and meanwhile the GOP in congress are collecting their healthcare benefits via compliments of those who oppose their own healthcare improvements. How stupid can people be ...we are finding out.

N&S Thank you for joining with health care advocates from across the country in telling Congress to stop messing with Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare.

Today we’re celebrating the big things that health care reform advocates can do. We can be proud of an America where everyone will have access to health care when they need it.

What are the Republicans doing? In three days, they’re going to try to repeal Obamacare for the 40th time. They need to stop.

They will not stop the destruction of American until them and there masters are dealt with

Laura, and others, got to Healthcare.gov to learn any info you want on the ACA. It is not government insurance. You choose your own insurance company and the coverage you want., etc., etc.

GOP= hot air bastard, hypocrites wasting the taxpayers' money and extra 39 times. I'm guessing they are setting themselves up for the next election cycle, when they can go their imbecilic voters and tell them how hard they tried, again, and again, to keep American health care in the stone ages.
Oh, I know, their supporters must be genetic outliers, with MUCH more than the normal 4% of Neanderthal DNA.
Silly me, it's really not nice to insult the Neanderthals, they qwere probably much more intelligent than those who are accustomed to vote for the GOP.
It must be those aliens, you know, the ones who steal minds.
