    Bear with me, I'm not up to speed on this. How will the govt force a private business to accept these conditions?

    Yep. The only way Biden can come out of his okay is if he conveniently breaks his leg between now and the debate and can't be there. Ryan's going to hand him his rear.:supergrin:

    Id like to see amount of time each spent speaking, like how everyone blamed romney for going over time but Obama spoke more, etc.

    Obamacare considers contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion a "preventative services" that must be covered whether its private insurance or goverment healthcare. As an employer under Obamacare you are required to offer insurance to your employees or face fines. So regardless if you are pro-life, if you are an employer you must provide coverage for abortions to your employees, and if you are a taxpayer you will be paying for abortions for those under government healthcare. The catholic church itself was recently exempt, but all other Catholic orgainzations are not.

    And I just heard that the Radish interrupted Ryan another 31 times, making a total of 113 interruptions of Ryan in 90 minutes.

    She interrupted Biden only 19 times. She's the most biased moderator in modern debate history. It was really two against one.

    :perfect10: Romney explained this briefly IIRC, Ryan completely let this go.

    Yes, like how about pressuring Harry Reid to allow bills to be voted on, win or loose? (the VP is president of the Senate)


    On the other hand, Biden talks smack about the wars that he voted to fund. Could have been an even bigger zinger if Ryan was aware of it and he brought it up.

    obamacare re defines full time as 120 hours a month so businesses will slash employee hours to under that. Ive been told my hours will be capped at work. ant believe more people aren't against this seeing they'll need 2 jobs to get by and finding other jobs in an obama economy will be tough

    I figured Biden would do something retarded and I wasn't wrong. He showed up as the worlds biggest, rudest tool.

    From what I recall hearing it was pretty even with Biden talking a few seconds more than Ryan.

    I actually thought she was fair and asked Biden as many tough questions as she asked Ryan.

    I didn't care for Biden's demeanor, but so what. Biden lied about the Libyan Ambassador's murder and he lied about Catholic church leadership's position on Obamacare's mandates that they violate Church doctrine. Quite frankly slimy politicians like Biden make my skin crawl. That said, i don't think Ryan did a particularly good job. Al-in-all not an inspiring debate and won't impact the election one way or another.

    Thank you for spelling that out for me.
    I'm very much pro choice.
    But religious people shouldn't have their choice taken away. So, I'll have to think on this a bit.

    I agree, extremely biased.

    She made sure it was payback time for the trouncing Romney gave Obama.
