    How is that working so far on getting Gun Control legislation passed.  He has been beating the drums daily and yet it is still DOA in the House and showing signs of not making it through the Senate.  And just because you don't bother doing a simple Google search to find out that Obama had been calling on Congress to avoid Sequestration nearly daily from when it got delayed in the "Fiscal Cliff" negotiations until it was implemented and has repeatedly called on Congress to negotiate a way around it nearly as frequently since it started.

    But then venting your spleen and showing everyone how ignorant and hateful you are is so much more productive than actually working to put pressure on Congress where the problem actually is.

    A person's character is measured by how they treat everyone. Not just your pet group.

      But don't you DARE call principled dissent "hateful" or "ignorant" just because they won't grab a set of pom-poms and chant with you. Obama has NOT done enough..and this pitiful little gesture doesn't cut the mustard.

      Adequate health care should be a LEGAL RIGHT in the U.S without begging or bankruptcy. Until it is, we should not dare call our society civilized.
