    The thing that most amazes me is none of our news morons had the brains to ask Obama who helped him write this 25,00+ page bill and who stands to gain from it. I would bet a year of salray Obama didn’t write it and think it up on his own as he doesn’t have the brains and if we could see his college transcripts, we would know this as true.

    So much for ‘assumptions’! That’s a typical drawback with the liberal mind set. They ASSUME that everybody will just fall in line with their wishes. They do NOT know American people as well as they thought they did!
