Meet The 42 Democrats Who Are Skipping Netanyahu’s Speech To Congress

Empty_Congress

There will be at least 42 Democrats skipping Netanyahu’s speech to Congress. Here is the list of those who have confirmed that they will not be attending.

All total there are 41 Democrats and Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who caucuses with the Democrats, that will not be attending. Some Democrats have been very vocal about why they will not be attending. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said, “The unfortunate way that House leaders have unilaterally arranged this, and then heavily politicized it, has demolished the potential constructive value of this Joint Meeting. They have orchestrated a tawdry and high-handed stunt that has embarrassed not only Israel but the Congress itself. It has long been an unwritten rule and practice through the decades that when it comes to American foreign policy, we speak and act thoughtfully, with one voice when we can, with the national interests of the United States as our uppermost consideration, and with caution about the unintended consequences of unilateral actions like this. They have diminished that valuable precedent.”

Independent Bernie Sanders specifically cited way the president was treated, “Mr. Netanyahu has every right in the world to disagree with President Obama or any of us about our relationship and we proceed with Iran in terms of how we prevent them from getting nuclear weapons. He has every right, but he doesn’t have the right in my view to inject himself into an American political discussion by being the speaker before a joint session of Congress to criticize the President Of The United States. There are all kinds of avenues open to him to speak to members of Congress, and that’s fine. I don’t think it’s a good idea to have a foreign leader coming before Congress to rip apart the President Of The United States.”

Democrats did not organize an official boycott of the speech, so the number who will not be attending is fairly impressive.

There are dozens of Democrats who are listed as “on the fence” about attending. If your senators or representative has not committed to attending or skipping the speech, there is still time to let them know how you feel.

Here is the full list of those who have committed to making a statement against the disrespect of the president.

  1. I feel it would have been more of a statement If they all would of walked out as Bibi was introduced. But Bravo to those that stood for President Obama!
    WHo knows maybe they will walkout on him. I hope someone thought of it.

  2. Someone go tell John Conyers he is now from Georgia. He must have made a wrong turn from Michigan somehow.

    argh////

    I don’t see my Dem Rep from Georgia on this list.

  3. Not looking good for Netanyawho? This reverse “Dis” by our courageous Democrats at his finger wagging speech tomorrow will certainly not play well in Israel either. IF he loses, he can attribute it to his blatant disrespect for the President and his highhorse “advise” to our foreign policy leaders—that he knows what’s best for US to do. He’s been saying the same thing for years, why come back again with the same old tired agenda? The people in Israel might reject this man and un-seat him. That will be another loss of face for the Republican, especially Boehner. His ego allowed him to follow bad advise from the President’s adversaries. Who does he think he is? A Republican from another country? I guess he and them feels so.

  4. I emailed my 3 democrats, Feinstein, Boxer and Schiff with my disappointment in them.

    I’d love it if every democrat that isn’t on the list just got up walked out, this could be their strategy.

  5. Why are we funding Netanyahu and his defense with our taxes, how many kids have gone without food in the US to give Israel
    billions in aid every year, how many roads and bridges could we repair with that money?

    No one mentions the fact that Netanyahu has about 200 nuclear weapons, if he can have them why not Iran? Perhaps Iran wants some defense too.

  6. No one mentions the fact that Netanyahu has about 200 nuclear weapons, if he can have them why not Iran? Perhaps Iran wants some defense too.
    ====================
    Winner winner chicken dinner

  7. How does Bernie Sanders know what is being said tomorrow? He makes the below statement about criticizing Obama but Netanyahu has not given the speech. Bernie tends to mix up facts with his personal opinions and ambitions. Too bad the press gives him a forum.

    “Mr. Netanyahu has every right in the world to disagree with President Obama or any of us about our relationship and we proceed with Iran in terms of how we prevent them from getting nuclear weapons. He has every right, but he doesn’t have the right in my view to inject himself into an American political discussion by being the speaker before a joint session of Congress to criticize the President Of The United States. There are all kinds of avenues open to him to speak to members of Congress, and that’s fine. I don’t think it’s a good idea to have a foreign leader coming before Congress to rip apart the President Of The United States.”

  8. Bobjohnson Mr Yahoo doesn’t have the right to address our Congress and insult our Pres!!!!! and use our Congress As an election action for himself. Mr yahoo owes his life and the stability in his country to OUR COUNTRY….MR yahoo wants this country to go to war (again)to help Israel. No more MR Yahoo NO more!!!!Iran was way too much.

  9. No PRIME MINISTER should be invited without informing the President about visits to congress.

    It should be harmful when everyone wants to disrupt this government by infusing their political agenda days before their re-election.

    Netanyahoo is not welcomed by many who support the idea that foreign policy belongs to the leader of this nation. To fan the flames of hate should not be on the agenda of a governing body of the US. PERIOD!

  10. Great example as to why the Democratic Party is losing elections. We do not stand united with our President. The right thing to do, is for all of the democrats in Congress to skip the event and show the country that we are in support of our President. We need to get a backbone and show a united front if we want to win elections in the future. Those showing up at the event are more worried about re-election than helping our President set policy for the country. COME ON Democrats, show some backbone.

  11. I hope that if there are any Dems left in Florida that they get up, get noticed, and leave that chamber in front of Netanyahu while he is speaking.

  12. There can be ONLY one reason for Netanyahu to address our congress. And that is to make HIS bid get congress to pass bills forcing the President to stop the negotiations and take harsher sanctions against Iran.

    Well, maybe two reasons, he wants to show his opposition how much power he has in the U.S. And Boehner was attempting to show the President that he had power too

    Do you think BiBi is coming to congratulate the President on those talks? If so you have you head in a dark smelly place.

    This is one plan that has spectacularly backfired in his, and Boehner’s, face. They both deserve nothing but derision and contempt.

  13. So far, so good. Disappointing results in the Senate thus far. Why on earth would any self-respecting Democrat would attend this speech by a foreign head of state who appeared in paid-TV ads for Mitt Romney. I am ashamed of every Democrat whose name is not on this list.

  14. Well for one Netanyahu has not bashed Obama, and its Obama you has repeatedly bashed him and disrespected him when he came to meet them. When he went to newyork because he wanted to speak to Obama or Joe Biden he was made fun of and they thought it was funny he came all this way and they would not speak to them. I don’t see it as disrespectful in any way that another leader wants to come talk to congress to potentially save his country. How can that be any disrespect, and why would it bother anybody. And as he said he is not here to disrespect any one. Now I’m sure he knows more of what is in the agreement with iran then me or anyone on here because it has not yet been made public and as Joe Biden has said he cannot disclose what is in the deal. So knowing that what Iran has been allow do do so far, and what i mean by that is not allowing the inspectures who are suppose to make sure they are not doing anything that they are not suppose to, iran is not allowing them to check all of it…

  15. So i can see Netanyahu concern. And i do agree with him coming here to speak, after all it is Obama who is making a deal, where else would he go to speak.

  16. If anything it hurts his political agenda, and he is not doing it for that. He is doing it to save isael. By the way some of Obamas administration is in israel helping the other guy running against Netanyahu. Not only is Iran a threat to Israel, they are a threat to us. Its on video, iran has repeatedly said they want israel whipped off the face of the earth and the U.S. not to exist. Iran has said death to america. Like i said below in my comments i don’t see how anyone can take him coming here a disrespectful and not listen to him

  17. Wow, umm ok First off the reason why is because Iran has said they want israel to not exist, and death to americans. Does that sum it up for ya. I could go on and on about all the reasons but i think the top most important will do.

  18. Why walk out and show disrespect, if anything gems need to show that they hear him and if they disagree why. As much as they have been boycotting and walking out why do they still have a job, that is why they are there.

  19. The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 30 January 1799, currently codified at 18 U.S.C. § 953) is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. It was passed in 1799 and last amended in 1994.

    The Speaker of the House is not authorized to negotiate foreign policy with leaders of other countries. Foreign policy negotiations with other countries are exclusively within the Executive Branch’s purview.

    The President or the executive branch can make foreign policy through:

    1) — responses to foreign events
    2) — proposals for legislation
    3) — negotiation of international agreements
    4) — policy statements
    5) — policy implementation
    6) — independent action.

    Congress can make foreign policy through:

    1) — resolutions and policy statements
    2) — legislative directives
    3) — legislative pressure
    4) — legislative restrictions/funding denials
    5) — informal advice
    6) — congressional oversight.

  20. Haven’t heard from Senator Casey on this yet. He’s not on the list, so I hope he walks out when Mr. Netanyahu takes the podium.

  21. Actually fox news is the number one station, and i do check my facts. And yes some off the obama administration has done some one one shape or form.

  22. OMG! Could it be, that Bibi is the second coming of the savior? Is that why all the righties are so offended? You know some persecuted the King of the Jews once before.
    Seems a lot of people aren’t buying what Bibi is selling!

  23. Sad to see so many bought and paid for by AIPAC. Not attending would not have been anything against Israel – more against partisan political bad manners and endangering nuke talks with Iran.

    As usual – Democrats talk a lot – but their actions do not show any commitment or consequences. Shame on all those who will attend. We do not “owe” Israel, when they have disrespected our president , attacked our ships, spied on us, collaborated with the Saudis against us, and sabotaged us and pressured to start the war in Iraq which caused the destablization of the entire MIddle East.

    Just like the Iraq vote – the Dems in Congress show their weakness and inability to stand for anything substantial on foreign policy. Pretty lame. And particularly – shame on New York for pandering out of fear.

    As the song said – “you gotta stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything…”

  24. Why did yaahoo make his speech to congress in 2006-07. In my opinion yahoo does not respect a black man in power.
    I think president Obama should put yaahoo on his watch list. There are other countries with much more dangerous than Iran. There are countries that have made threats far more harsher. I hope he has them on his radar. I am sure If he thinks they will wipe him off the earth take your forces and get it on. Not with my tax dollars.

  25. We don’t send people to Congress to represent the president – we send them there to represent the people of their district or their state. If their loyalties are anywhere else they are misplaced. If they do not value free speech and the chance to be heard, then that is another American ideal they do not represent. Their absence as a political stunt is shameful.

  26. A foreign head of state has no inherent right to be heard by *our* Congress. And delegates do, indeed, have a duty to represent the interests of their district, not those of the oil lobby or Bibi Netanyahu.

  27. and why do you think Iran hates Israel and the US, so much that they want them off the earth? Can you give us at least one reason Laynett? [WINK]

  28. Joan, clearly you’re not familiar with the history of Israel, Iran or the Middle East.

    You might start by learning about the 1948 Arab–Israeli War and the 1967 Six-Day War.

    You could continue with November 4, 1979, to January 20, 1981 Iran Hostage Crisis.

    Then for giggles you might look at the 1995
    worldwide terrorist conference led by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and attended by, among others, the Japanese Red Army, the Armenian Secret Army, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, the Iraqi Da’wah Party, the Islamic Front for the Liberation and Hezbollah.

    Finally, you might read the US Dept of State report State Sponsors of Terrorism Overview. You can skip most of it and go directly to chapter three (http://www.state.gov/j/ct/rls/crt/2013/224826.htm).

    The Obama/Kerry plan to deliver nuclear weapons to Iran is prefaced by the previous Democrat administrations and the blunders of Carter and Clinton and the deft manipulations of the Iranian Mullahs in return.

    History r…

  29. Before you talk quatsch like that (“plan to deliver nuclear arms to Iran”) you be prepared to cite, fight…or be dismissed as a malicious liar.

  30. I have not looked up these folks but I am just wondering if they are all black because I only saw 3 black people in the audience. [Goodbye, bigot]

  31. Are you kidding.The Arab nations in the middle east know of Israel’s capabilities and they aren’t concerned. The minute Iran becomes nuclear they will all want to be because you can’t trust Iran with such power. You will have real nuclear proliferation. Imagine ISIS with a nuc!

  32. Again Iran is not a nuclear power. They do not have the bomb and their facilities are inspected all the time. But guess who don’t allow inspections and if you are worried about ISIS getting some nukes then you better pay attention to Pakistan. Can you find Pakistan on a map?

  33. GEN:12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

  34. Read a little history and recall how the Czech PM pleaded not to sell out Czechoslovakia. Did Chamberlain and Daladier listen? History shows what happened. The fact that the IAEA has been complaining about their problems with Iran and inspection of their facilities should give fair warning as to what kind of mindset we are dealing with. Now iss not the time to be childish about personal feelings. There is a world at stake. AS a lifelong Democrat, I am ashamed of the people who boycotted. Any discussion and information is better than partisian ignorance.

  35. The War Party and Israel just do not give up on trying to provoke a war with Iran. Now that Benjamin Netanyahu is done killing the Palestinians in Gaza, including dozens of children, Mossad has apparently fed the public with yet another piece of fake “evidence,” supposedly obtained through hacking of Iran’s computers, through its usual conduit for such nonsense, George Jahn of the Associated Press. The latest “evidence” is a diagram that supposedly exhibits power and energy released in a simulation of nuclear explosion. Before I debunk this piece of nonsense, a bit of background information on Jahn may be useful.
    http://original.antiwar.com/sahimi/2012/11/29/ap-george-jahn-and-the-fake-diagram-for-irans-bomb/

  36. Já mluvím česky a dobře znám české dějiny. Váše srovnání není skutečně platný.

    Iran has not invaded Israel and is not going to invade Israel. The comparison is not valid. It is all based on fears and “what ifs”. What Hitler did in the Sudety was a REALITY.

  37. Furthermore, Iran hasn’t taken anyone’s land or been involved in a war for a couple of centuries. Israel continues to take land which doesn’t belong to it to acquire its own “Lebensraum”. So maybe it’s Israel that’s been acting like Hitler in the Sudety, huh?????

  38. I see the AIPAC morons are also here on this article earning those nickels without any facts or proof. Remember when you guys favorite “christian” wanted to bring on Armageddon, which caused France to call him crazy as a bed bug and sit the war in Iraq out? All during his crazy antics North Korea went nuclear, did any of you morons complain? Hell no you didn’t. Now Naziyahoo makes his speech and you run to liberal sites to earn those Ailes nickels, meanwhile North Korea is shouting “we are going to bring fire and brimstone upon America” and shit like that, still not a peep out of you nickel earning morons, and North Korea has nuclear weapons, and would gladly sell Iran some, if Iran wanted them. So, why don’t you morons mosey on back to Fox Nation and Stormfront.

  39. Intolerance for other people of other beliefs. Now why is there anyone who would think that is a good idea to wipe israel out and the U.S.

  40. Umm…not trying to be rude so excuse me when i say i understand why some might say common since doesn’t grow in everyones garden.

  41. I am glad the list of the congressman and senators who did not attend the speech.David price is my congressman and I will do my part to try for his defeat in the next election. I will write letters to the news and observer in raleigh.I want to let as many people as possible know about his lack of respect. I will call talk shows and donate money to his challenger.

  42. Really cause the last time i check they back up isil, hamas and other terrorist. While some terrorist can afford their own others Iran funds.

  43. How can they back up ISIL when right now they are fighting them for Tirkit. Jesus H Christ the stupid is out in force today

  44. Why? Because they took their oath to the United States Constitution seriously. How does it feel to be a quisling?

  45. I guess you must be calling yourself stupid, let me break it down for you, they back isil yes, but only because they are doing what iran wants done anyways. Iran and isil are against each other because they both want to rule. And didn’t you say iran hasn’t been at war in centuries. How about this, do you believe that iran is not a threat. And what overall is your view about iran. Just curious

  46. Well francie i might have spelled wrong, by the way i didn’t think that it would be that important. But if you want to point out and talk about everything that doesn’t matter go for it. I shows your immaturity. Did i spell that right.

  47. Im not sure if it posted but i will send it again. Yes they back isil only because they are doing what they want done anyways. But yes they are at odds because Iran wants to rule everything. Now I’m just curious if you think iran is a threat, and if not why.

  48. Good speech Bob Menendez gave as well as others. And a great speech from prim minister Netanyahu. And although a lot of democrats did not like him coming for whatever reason, I’m glad to see that some of them went.

  49. I shows your your immaturity? Calm down and use spell check.
    And isn’t that what he came here for? When he gets his feelings hurt, then he can play the persecuted. All sermon, short on facts. Iran has been a year away from having a nuke for some twenty years. (According to him) This could blow up in his face before an Iranian nuke.

  50. There were no facts all recycled talking points was what he offered. Did you read the transcript? He gave pretty much the same speech before we went into Iraq. That worked out well.
    I’m not truly against him speaking, I’m against his warmongering. If Isreali’s want this war they need to fight it and pay for it. Their money, their blood!

  51. If you heard his speech then obviously you know why he made the speech. Israel don’t want a war, but they know that there might be a war. Do you over look that the president of iran has said many times that israel should not exist and death to americans. The Iran president doesn’t hide the fact that he wants all jews dead or americans. But you think israel just wants a war. Iran openly backs terrorist and also funds some. Israel has been having attacks for years from the ones he funds and also the terrorist that he don’t fund. So how do you think that israel just wants a war.

  52. And i understand you think they should fund their own war, thats your opinion. In my opinion that is what make us who we are, we help. Israel is not the only ones who will suffer. Many other countries as well as the united states are also going to be affected. If iran gets what they want, all of us will be wiped off the map.

  53. Well now isn’t that what the P5 is trying to prevent, another war? Cowboy Yahoo wants to throw a wrench into it! He isn’t looking for an answer he wants a preemptive attack. And no I could only take a few minutes of listening to him speak, before I wanted to vomit. I read the transcript. You should try that. Then you might realize he’s spouting the same old shit, like a titty baby not getting his way! If they, and by they I mean Yahoo, wants to start a war, so be it. I don’t want to pay for it with the blood of my children, or my dollars. Sometimes you have to take responsibility for the monsters you create, if let unchecked, Isreal needs to take responsibility for this asshat.

  54. I don’t have to read it, I’ve heard his speech. And there is nothing wrong with repeating it. I can’t believe you actually thing israel is the one creating the problem. You might want to read up some more so you can learn. War is not good, but if it comes down to it id rather we fight them there then here.

  55. LOL!..What is it that i need to learn how to read. I know i won’t be reading the stuff most people here are. If you think netanyahu is the problem who have your facts wrong or your brain is wired differently

  56. So this man who has lied to you for the past 26 years about the so called Iranian threat is not the problem? No wonder you are a bagger, you like, no loved being lied too

  57. Spoken like a true democrat. I guess you get on the same level as you kids when name calling. My feelings aint hurt i just wonder if you think about what you type before you send. Cause that was pretty stupid.

  58. dj, and francis how about this….if netanyahu is such a liar why don’t both of you go visit. that way when they get bombed by terrorist that iran backs and funds you can sit on your ass and do nothing. Since that is what you all are saying is to do nothing.

  59. A chart of estimated deaths resulting from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from the start of the First Intifada (Dec. 9, 1987) through July 7, 2014 appears below. Statistics from B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights organization, are used because they are largely considered to have comprehensive and nonpartisan data. Deaths from international military operations between Israel and its neighbor countries are not included in this presentation.
    http://israelipalestinian.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=000639

    But then again you don’t have to read so you make up your own reality

  60. Now since you can look that up, why not look up why so many were killed. Who fired first. Or do you just look up who done the most damage. Israel don’t start it but they do finish. so tell me the story of why israel was fighting hamas last year besides the deaths. can you answer that

  61. Ummmm, what? I seriously cannot make heads or tails of your comment. Who’s the bigot and who is saying goodbye? What in the world is your point?

  62. I’m a democrat thru and thru ,, but I’m disgusted with these people calling themselves democrats in washington ,,the way they’re treating isreal and the prime minister ,, i can’t believe it … I’m from texas and i will never vote for any of these democrats that boycotted or disrespected isreali prime minister ,,, nancy pelosi , obama, biden,,,, all of them,,,,, DISGUSTING ,,, i can’t even forgive myself for voting for obama/biden ,,,,,,,,

  63. True Democrats are wonderful people. You should try and get to know them. It sure beats old angry bitter white repubs any day.

  64. You do know Israel created HAMAS . Now back to your question, how would you feel if your land was stolen from you, you are locked in a virtual prison, your food and water is rationed you cant even sell what little goods you produced. Now you can beat that little chest of yours and saying there is no such thing a Palestinian but you would be wrong.

    Israel has security and administrative control of 61.2% of the West Bank and about 20% of the Gaza Strip and security control over another 26.8% of the West Bank. This control is what has enabled Israel to double the number of settlers in 10 years..and to seal an entire nation into restricted areas, imprisoned in a network of bypass roads meant for Jews only…

    “Israel has failed the test. Palestinians control of 12% of the West Bank does not mean that Israel has given up its attitude of superiority and domination…The bloodbath that has been going on for three weeks is the natural outcome of seven years of [Israeli] lying and deception.” Israeli journalist Amira Hass, “Israel Has Failed The Test,” in Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, 10/18/00.

    And please don’t bring up that canard of Israel being a democracy when in 1989 Israel High Court decision that any political party advocating full equality between Arab and Jew can be barred from fielding candidates in an election.

  65. No you are not a Democrat the word for you is quisling. How dare you cede our national interest to a foreign country. You disgust me but being from Texass I understand your idiocy

  66. Psssst! No one here is going to buy your “I’m a democrat but hate all of them and wish I’d voted for Romney!” bs. Peddle it elsewhere, “Tommie/Suzie/Bill/Jeff/Mary”.

  67. I do think about what I type before I send it. I consider the mentality of the person I’m dealing with. I have no desire to ever visit, you can do that for me. So if Iran can pull a nuke out of their ass, you can have the front row seat! Oh and Lenutt, save a seat next to you for Bibi.

  68. From what i know of it Israel did back them back in the 80s or so and told them how to be strong, if I’m not mistaken. But through the years they have become who they are today. While some countries have grown like we have and see the non sense of people years ago. Other countries are still living like they did years ago, they have not grown or changed the ways in which they think and do. Now as far as the other stuff you mentioned i haven’t heard or focused on it but i will do research. In the end terrorist is terrorist, Israel today is not the problem. Being a military wife for 8 years and married to someone who has now retired with 21 years and 5 deployment you get to know and educate yourself on what is going on and who is the threat. Not one military member that i have does not support israel.

  69. The problem with your false argument is not who supports Israel its we don’t support the Likud party and we really don’t support them trying to set our foreign policy

  70. Oh and another thing i have learn, don’t just listen to the news, cnn, fox, etc. or bloggers. research yourself

  71. Im glad you have a mind of your own, most on democrat and republicans stick together. Don’t know if you heard Bob Menendez speech yesterday day but it was a wonderful one. i seen some democrats did show up after saying they might not attend, but atlas they came and heard what was said even though they might not agree. For the others who didn’t show up it was very disrespectful. They need to show even though they disagree they still support Israel.

  72. So you give more respect to a foreign leader whose sole purpose is to undermine our national security than your own President? Quisling and BTW f@ck bibi and his Likud party. “Nations have no permanent friends or allies, they only have permanent interests.” and their interest is not our interest

  73. Sorry i don’t back my president who has lied repeatedly. And as far as our foreign policies our president do show respect as getting our countries opinion on what they thing about the deals that are being made. If they didn’t include them in it then we are the ones who don’t care about what happens to them considering they are the neighbors to the ones that are getting a deal.

  74. Well lets see, health care for one. And I’m just not talking about if you like you doctor you can keep it. He said it will not cover abortions that was a lie to. Oh ITS afordable, really then why is that a lot of people are paying higher cost for it. Like a family of mine instead of paying little over a hundred a month he will have to start paying over 900 a month. thats just one. I find it odd people stick up for him so much when he has back more bad people then good. Making everything about race. Your beloved president hung out with know terrorist and of one of them was known to have been the cause of 50 bombings in the united states. He has decided us. This is by far the worst president of all.

  75. How many times does Bibi have to lie before before you stop beating the drumb for his pathological crap? Oh and since you were singing Mendez’s praise, you do realize he pulled his support for the oversite on Iran. He said there was no rush since nothing would happen till summer. I guess all the hysteria to get here before the March 17 election was just a little lie.

  76. You are a liar. Since 1977, federal law has banned the use of any federal funds for abortion, unless the pregnancy is a result of rape, incest, or if it is determined to endanger the woman’s life. This rule, also known as the Hyde Amendment, is not a permanent law; rather it has been attached annually to Congressional appropriations bills, and has been approved every year by the Congress. http://kff.org/womens-health-policy/issue-brief/coverage-for-abortion-services-and-the-aca/

    Health insurance costs are skyrocketing under Obamacare, Republican Party says. People may see increases to their health care costs under the law, but the typical experience is nowhere near what the ad suggests. Indeed, other Floridians will see their costs go down. We rate the claim Mostly False. http://www.politifact.com/florida/statements/2014/sep/29/republican-party-florida/health-insurance-costs-are-skyrocketing-under-obam/

    And what terrorist would that be? Bill Ayers? YOU STUPID F@CK the President was about 7 years old when Ayers supposedly was bombing targets.

  77. For one i don’t lie and the only one i see who is ignorant is you. Name what i have lied about. And let me know what the president has done for our country that is good.

  78. I dont lie, i might not know everything or even get misleading info from time to time but i don’t lie.Why don’t you watch the speeches on what obama said before healthcare and you might learn something. showing me something that everybody already new when obama lie is not what came out of his mouth

  79. i wrote you but it went to someone else so look for it I answered to the above.Now tell me what he has done thats good for us

  80. i might not know everything or even get misleading info from time to time
    —————————-
    That’s the first thing you have posted that made some sense

  81. By the way when i have family members who’s cost in healthcare has gone up, your going to say thats a lie. you are delusional

  82. Another issue obviously that you need to look up. Who did obama hang out with during or after college. look that up

  83. Everytime you baggers make a claim that your cost have gone up by 50 to a 1000% and after further investigation turns out to be a lie then yes without proof you are a liar

  84. Uh, other college students. BTW I heard in your 20’s you hung out with pedophiles. Now I know that’s not true but I read it on the internet

  85. Thats mature and stupid. Is that all you can come up with. Now if your to lazy to look up the real facts just say so instead od name calling, but i guess all the far left does it. It really makes you smart

  86. Then why don’t you post the link? Anytime someone say look it up for yourself more than likely they are full of shit. So guess what….

  87. Laynett, healthcare costs have always risen, not just because of ACA.

    Get real, now statements like you made are foolish. What hasn’t gone up in price. Furthermore, health insurance prices have increased the LEAST since President Obama has been in office.

    I know its hard for you to give him credit, but at least be honest.

  88. LOL….i am honest. that is true about health care but obamas healthcare is outrages. And if you have an apple computer the mouse for it don’t have a right click or i would have posted some up. The info that you are getting is from bloggers other journalist who put in whatever they hear weather its right or wrong

    I could go one but whats the point? Being a bagger facts have a liberal bias

  90. You give what happen to your uncle ned I give you links to reputable sources so without proof you are a liar and yes I said it

  91. Oh ya forget the fact obama said he got some of his ideas for from him, ohe and then says he never worked for him or talked to him. forget that gruber said lying to american people was the only way to pass the healthcare. So you did know obamas a liar but won’t admit it, obviously your a liar to. Proves all the pre you showed me went out the window since you are aware of the fact. Im just know realizing I’m talking to someone who knows they are full of shit just like obama. Sorry i can’t fix stupid. Don’t care to talk top someone who is a knowingly liar.

  92. Damn another fact and from uncle Rupert paper
    For the First Time in 30 Years, Unemployment Fell in Every State in 2014
    http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2015/03/04/for-the-first-time-in-30-years-unemployment-fell-in-every-state-in-2014/?utm_campaign=socnet_fb_ECON_20150304_bo_unemployment-down_recovery_1&utm_medium=socnet&utm_source=fb&awesm=ofa.bo_e3Bt&source=socnet_fb_ECON_20150304_bo_unemployment-down_recovery_1&utm_content=20150304_bo_unemployment-down_recovery_1

    Man I tell you this Obama fella is the worst communist socialist Marxist ever. Just think how worse we would be without his radical Muslim agenda

  93. Wrong again there are 4 or more videos of him speaking. Of course you will show the wrong one. i watched online and on television. really not that hard to find.

  94. Then enlighten us wise one and while you at it we are still waiting for those links showing the President in his younger days haging out with who we don’t know but from your post they must have been some bad people

  95. By the way he’s calling americans stupid because because of how things was worded in the obamacare people will not know what it means

  96. For one i already told you my mouse don’t have a right click. Google it. And it shows how ignorant you are that you can’t even see gruber saying that they have written the healthcare to where for americans won’t understanding what is in it. or did you miss that to. Which means he mislead on purpose if your not the only one who gets that. Thats old news. Like i said i can’t fix stupid so i want try. You keep going your way since it works for you. Me personally i don’t like to be lied to and i don’t listen to the left wing bs. Why do you thing some are voting for mor republicans now. I guess you think they are stupid americans to. Done with talking to you. Why don’t you find someone you know that don’t share your same belief so they can show you where your wrong or right in. Bye

  97. laynett sweetie – every single gosh darn thing you’ve said is wrong. The good folks here haven’t taken you to task. I will. You’re a liar. And you fucking know it.
