The GOP wave at the polls Tues. didn't just give the GOP more power to obstruct Obamacare in Congress and block Medicaid expansion in more than 20 states. It also could jeopardize health benefits already extended to Americans living near the poverty level

And I bet most who voted for them either will need or are using it now.
Thank you Carrie

I'm sure the Republicans will have a fit of conscience and dig deep into their own pockets to help the needy. . .

No Darren, Obama is digging deep into our pockets and funding what most Americans don't agree with and don't want... but oh well... 2016 can't come soon enough..

Redistributive wealth. Americans want to get back to work to be self sufficient. Obamacare hits our businesses effective January 2015 and what we will witness, unfortunately, are employers dropping medical coverage for their employees because under Obamacare the premiums will double/triple depending on the ages of the employees. It will cost less for employers to pay the mandated penalty which will still be exorbitant.

It appears that the majority of Americans are counting the days until Obama leaves Washington DC. We need to elect a leader in 2016 who can restore our military and our presence around the world and get Americans back to work so that they can support themselves and their families.

Flat tax is what I want to see!

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. We in AZ are hoping the new Gov. keeps this intact. If he threatens to diminish or repeal it, he will be facing a recall at the very least. Meanwhile, in the 2016 election, when people have to live with what the GOP changes, this state will be overtaken with a massive wave of blue.
A flat tax is always the best for those with a great amount of wealth. The ones most hurt by a flat tax are the lower and middle classes. I say tax the wealthiest and remove the loopholes they cherish with their money-grubbing greedy little paws.
