Emken is a laugher and doesn't stand a chance against a progressive Democrat like Diane. What delusion this women lives in I have no idea but perhaps she should move to the land of Michelle Bachman if she really wants to be in office.

No one could beat Feinstein/Pelosi/socialist machine. At least she gave it a shot. Can't wait for job losses!

So Patricia, you are not only a sore loser but you also "can't wait" for more unemployment pain for America.

That could still happen if the intransigent House Republicans (with a smaller majority) succeed in blocking a solution to the fiscal cliff.

Not only surveys but the reelection of the president and additional Democrats in the House & Senate show that the people want the disastrous Bush tax cuts to expire for those earning over $250K.

I'm with Patricia---closed polls in dem areas show 115% voter turn out---fraud. The layoffs are beginning----sped up after Tuesday's election----good. Very good! People voted for the socialist----enjoy-----we are not stimulating Obama's economy in any way---instead of a tip we now leave a card thanking for the service but--like Obama-Pelosi-Feinstein who want to spread OUR wealth (u didn't build that--my butt) we are sharing you tips!!!

Gary and Patricia,

Your comments are exactly why your party lost the election. You want America to fail to support your Rush type of ideology.

I find it comical that people (who are otherwise thinking individuals) continue to use the ‘socialism" attack against President Obama, and it just magnifies the ignorance on the Right. Socialism advocates "STATE OWNERSHIP" of an industry, something that is NOT taking place. The Health Insurance companies are not being taken over; they're just being directed to funnel their customer's premiums to actually pay for services than line the pockets of their CEO's. Yes,..it IS a social program, just like Social Security, Medicare, our Police and Fire departments, our Education system. Would we advocate eliminating THOSE social programs?? Of course not! In the top 30 Industrialized nations of the world, we are the ONLY one that does not have a state Health mandate for it's citizens, and we can thank the 'profit oriented' Health Insurance companies for that! Our system needed to be changed, and I for one am glad it finally did!

I read the 200+ pages of the so called affordable health care. Sadly, it will lead directly to a government takeover and denial of services for many. Thank you Gary and Patricia.

Correction-2000 plus that also exempts many federal workers unlike Canada whereby ALL must use it.
