5 "promise zones?" I PROMISE this latest Obama pipe dream will cost the tax payers A LOT of money with no results to show, but this is exactly the kind of silly lip service that you would expect from a community activist that has no business being in the position he is in.

Was "if you like your plan, you can keep it" in one of those "promise zones?" Guess not. Obama.....what an embarrassment to America.

Heres what i find funny, where was this concern the last 5 years? You do realize this and the unemployment aid extension are just meant to deflect attention from Obamacare.
