Franken should be attacked for this, he was one of the deciding votes for this disaster of our health care!

MAYBE WE are expecting too much but could big Al hold some town hall meetings on Obamacare since he was the 60th vote to pass it? and tell us what he has accomplished in the last 5 years?

Do the right thing Minnesota send the 'carpetbagger 'packing. He can always catch on as a joke writer for Bill Maher.

Let the record show that Mr Franken was the deciding vote in the Senate that made Obamacare law. And, oh by the way, he became the deciding Senator based on a flawed recount process. Stand loud and tall for your deciding vote Mr Franken between now and next Nov and let's see where that leaves you post election.

Al cast the 60th vote that put the ACA law in place. He needs to go. If he would have read the bill he should have realized that millions of policies would be cancelled.

Oh no. Not Franken. The whole Obamacare was a joke, wasn't it? Maybe he can do comedy at the pep rallies.

I'm a conservative. However, I will be voting a straight democratic ticket from now on. In my opinion the only way to get this country moving in the right direction is to have the Liberals totally ruin the country. Only then will they see a change is needed and the conservatives way is what's needed. We need less wagon riders and more wagon pullers. I'm proud to pull the wagon.

As well they should. Given the leadership and effort they have put forth in making the ACA a success, they have bragging rights don't they? Oops, all they have really done is to thwart its success and they want to blame someone else.

Al Franken was the deciding vote for Obamacare. And he was so proud to cast that vote. Just think, if Norm Coleman had competent attorneys, we wouldn't even be going through this mess.
