Why are the media worried about the government shutdown when only 7 percent of Americans think Congress is doing a good job?

We should be more worried about losing our heath care providers and our premiums increasing up to 140 percent, in some cases.

The Affordable Care Act is causing people to lose their jobs and other workers to go part-time - reason enough to stop this unconstitutional train wreck.

These are some of the facts we know about the health care law. It is three times the cost told to the American people. The Congressional Budget Office and General Accounting Office have both stated it is an unsustainable disaster waiting to happen.

Here are those who are exempt from Affordable Care Act: The president and his aides, and big corporations. The IRS wants exemptions. McDonald’s is lobbying for exemptions, and so is the AFL-CIO.

Why aren't there any exemptions for "we the people"?
