    Neither, haha.  Both are very poor choices in my opinion.

    @TheSpoons:  … and I’m supporting the needy by keeping Obama in so they DO get access to health insurance options.

    @TheSpoons:  …Wait. So you think that if PP stopped providing condoms to teenagers, PP wouldn’t have a purpose?

    Please do some reading on PP and contraceptives.

    “Even my boss, who owns a multi-branch corporation, cannot afford to provide health insurance for his employees anymore!”

     

    Uhh…  if he blames Obamacare for that, he’s not being honest with you.  None of the changes that affect price-setting and payouts for private-payer insurance policies go in to effect until 2013.

    Usually I try to stay impartial, but I just had to say something. I don’t understand how people who are unemployed and/or saddled with debt can think that Romney being elected can help them. He has never had to deal with those problems personally.

    Also, the health care law was passed to help those who can’t get insurance or are underinsured so they don’t have tons of medical debt. Even with pre-existing conditions.

    Obama was elected into office during a extremely bad time and has done what he can to improve things. The Republican House and the Senate have blocked a lot of laws that could have helped the American people so Obama shouldn’t take all of the blame. The economy is slowly improving and I feel people will blindly vote for Romney thinking that Obama single-handedly is not doing anything.

    No matter who you vote for, at least be informed with the facts before you vote.

    Romney/Ryan. I’m not 100% for him, but I think he’s a better choice than Obama based off of the factors I’m looking for in a president. I’m really not impressed with either candidate though.

    @hunnysgethitched:  Seriously. I have respect for, and reservations about both Obama and Romney. I could care less who you vote for, but for God’s sake, at least form your opinions about them from facts and impartial research and not talking points and out-of-context sound bites?? pleeeeeeeeeeease!?

     

    For the record, I am a Mass resident, and we have some of the best and most affordable health insurance in the country (and the highest percentage of insured mothers and children), thanks to the healthcare plan which Mitt Romney developed, which was later developed in to Obama’s plan, and I voted for Romney for Gov. here not too long ago  😉     So when I say I’m impartial about these two men in particular, its because I REALLY am.

    @hunnysgethitched:   I don’t comment on these boards because I’m a conservative and things always get nasty when you admit that on these type of threads. But, Obama has never had to deal with any of the problems you cite Romney not having to deal with personally. Just thought I’d point that out…
