    Just like the school choice/vouchers argument...Libbie elites are against school choice for poor and middle class kids in terrible schools while they put their own children in elitist prep and private schools.

    Same, predictable action regarding their staffers on Obamacare...you masses bend over and drop the soap....but we are exempting our staffers and ourselves.

    Unfortunately 52% of the population likely doesn't have a clue...too busy watching American Idol, The Voice, Americas got Talent and New Jersey Housewives.

    Actually cons motto is it's great for me, let me teach it to thee. A rising tide floats all boats.

    sorry, just don't want my grandchild taught by cons who many times are anti-social gimme-pigs

    though I sense you would refer to libs as gimme-pigs also

    thing is---both ultra libs as well as ultra cons,,,by their nature are anti-social gimme-pigs who just are incapable of living, playing, working with others due to intolerant attitudes(such as your labeling all libs as being the same) and clearly identified by 'us vs them, and no middle ground' comments, etc

    I'd rather deal with social gimme-pigs than anti-social gimme pigs. But neither is a bargain

    Old, perhaps your post makes sense to you, but I have no idea what you are talking about. Perhaps your post can be deciphered by other libs?

    Another liberal motto: You work harder and pay for everyone so I don't have to.

    Another con motto: Reduce all motivations of the opposition to little insulting mottos.

    Conservatives disagree with liberals. We get that. But these inflammatory little gimmick posts offer no real benefit to either side.

    Please. Practically the entire Obama liberal campaign is to attack conservatives with insults like "racists", "greedy".

    Furthermore, if you asked why liberal voters vote the way they do, it would come down to a bumper sticker slogan with little knowledge of the issues.

    Now you whine when liberal hypocricy is called out again and again.

    Uh, the article talks about congress/white house/Obama creating another exception to the law so "congressional aides" won't have to quit due to Obamacare.

    I suppose this is another "phony" scandal?

    Some liberals, sure. And some conservatives too.

    Rade, we know who most Obama voters are. And 80% could not give you one good reason why they voted for the man other than "free stuff" or "he's for the little guy". How's the free stuff working out for the majority of us? How is the little guy faring in this economy if he is unknowledgeable or ineligible for free stuff? I bet 50% of the Obama voters thought he was running against Bush until they stepped into the booth. Hell, a fair % thought Sarah Palin was Obama's running mate!

    It's tough to buy into this when living in FL customers are constantly ripped off by industries supported by a Pub gov and legislature......energy, home and car insurance and the dismantling of public schools in favor of private charter schools.

    We had a good choice program but it was eliminated due to the drastic budget cuts by Rick Scott......in favor, of course, for tax breaks for business.

    What are you referring to when you say "choice"?

    And I don't think he's dismantled public schools has he? They seem to be operating pretty well in St Johns county (best in the state). Not too good in Duval which is why we sent ours to private but the new superintendent gives us hope. And allowing parents to pull their kids from failing schools...what's wrong with that. Liberal elites seem to be against this but ironically most send their kids to elite boarding or private prep schools. So it is good for thee to keep your kids in a hell hole, but not for me.

    And the industries providing power, auto insurance, home owners insurance were all in place long before Gov Scott. Doubt he's had anything to do with anything you are complaining about.

    Personally, other than selecting Jennifer Carroll as his Lt Gov, I think Scott's done a pretty decent job in a tough economic environment.

    I don't know what to say about all this except you evidently haven't kept up with what Scott and the legislature has been doing.
