    It's just like FEMA. There were hurricanes when Bill Clinton was president. There have been hurricanes since President Obama's been in office. And FEMA has responded well each and every time.

    Then, there was Hurricane Katrina. And our government's response was abysmal. Why? Because George W. Bush and his Republican cronies want to paint a picture to the American people of a government that doesn't work and promote their belief that every last thing in our world should be privatized.

    The GOP is terrified of the ACA. I saw Pat Buchanan last week on Fox refer to it as a "morphine drip." Yes, Pat, you're right. Once folks realize that Obamacare will provide affordable healthcare for people who don't have it through their jobs, they'll want a better, more responsive government and may hold elected officials who keep on mucking up the process responsible.

    How about I believe in the unlucky ones?
