BILL O'REILLY: Let's just be frank here. You want to be frank, Howard? You want to be honest? Sarah Palin won't do this program. She won't come on the program because she doesn't want to mix it up. She doesn't. She wants to give a speech, and nobody gives speeches here. Okay? So she doesn't come on. We invited her on tonight. You're here instead. B
JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: Juan, fasten your seat belt. The federal government should stay within the confines of the constitution. The constitution does not authorize the federal government to have anything whatsoever to do with healthcare.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: The latest thing to happen on MSNBC, Martin Bashir last Friday got mad at Sarah Palin because she said something he didn't like about Obamacare. She compared Obamacare and the Obama economy to the equ

BURNETT: I'm a practicing one. That sounds like a religion. Of course, you know Jeb Bush is in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has said people should be able to marry whoever they want to marry. Do those two gentlemen fit your definition of a conservative? PAUL: You know, I don't think any one person
SHEILA SALTER: When I hear people talk about oh, you know, go to the exchanges, shop, shop, shop. You have one plan, okay? That plan includes the benefits listed in the left-hand column. Now you can see Sheila’s plan. Sheila’s plan was the one that I chose. I chose my services. I’ve done that all these years. I chose those services, chose tha
GOV. CHRIS CHRISTIE (R-NJ): I mean with all due respect that's part of the problem with the culture here, that somebody thinks that I could solve Obamacare in 14. minutes. And solve the health care crisis in 14 minutes. And then I got 30 seconds on, you know, Iran and 22 seconds on Syria. You know? We'll solve the whole thing, let's carve it up.

WFOR-TV Orlando: Seven weeks to the day since the troubled healthcare.gov website was launched, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in Miami, meeting with so-called “navigators” who are helping the public get signed up for coverage.

BILL O'REILLY: So you can see there is more chaos on the horizon. And every American will feel it. We are a country that depends on a robust economy. We don't have one. President Obama vowed to make national health insurance mandates work. So far, the new law is a disaster.
BARACK OBAMA: In my conversations with Republicans, I actually think the divide is not that wide. So what we just have to do is find a pathway where Republicans in the House in particular feel comfortable enough about process that they can go ahead and meet us. This, by the way, Gerry (sp), I think is a good example of something that’s been s
“No, I don’t regret the vote," fmr. Rep. Bart Stupak, a pro-life Democrat, said about his controversial vote in favor of Obamacare that cost him another term. "I’m proud to vote. I always felt that health care should be a right, not a privilege in this country — one of the reasons why I ran for Congress. I’m glad to have helped accomplish
PRESIDENT OBAMA: I think that the way our system is set up is like a loaded gun. And once people thought we can get leverage on policy disputes by threatening default, that was an extraordinarily dangerous precedent. And that’s a principle that I had to adhere to, not just for me but for the next president, that you’re not going to be able to t
