Does it matter if Fox News reported the headlines too?
Here's a news flash for ya'. Fox News is not just commentaries and political analyists like O'Reilly and Hannity. They have legitimate news reporters - who even go to White House press conferences!
Industries looking for ways to avoid Obamacare is headline news.
Google it.
Or ignore it. Suit yourself.
Googled it. Came up with Fox, Fox, Hot Air and Darden, first page.

The director of Restaurant Opportunities Centers (ROC) United, Sarah Jayaraman, told Resnikoff she believed Darden “was using the Affordable Care Act as a mere pretext to cut back on labor costs.‘Maybe they want to portray that that’s the cause of the issue, but it really isn’t.” Indeed, as Resnikoff notes, a number of reports have detailed Darden’s history of labor abuses.

Restaurant Workers Target Unsavory Labor Practices at Darden

While restaurant owners scarf up profits, workers with the Restaurant Opportunities Center are biting back with a multi-city campaign against a company that represents the one-percent of the food service industry. They have launched protests as well as legal action against Darden, which runs Capital Grille, Olive Garden, Red Lobster and other prominent eateries.
According to the lawsuit, Capital Grille workers in Los Angeles, New York City, and Chicago were subjected to grueling work schedules and underpayment of wages, and sometimes were forced to work “off the clock” and denied overtime. Some tipped workers allegedly had their wages siphoned off to supplement the pay of non-tipped employees. There are also allegations of systematic racial discrimination—complaints that black workers were pushed out of the job and told they “didn’t meet Capital Grille standards.” In recent months, workers from other cities have also come forward with complaints about mistreatment.

Sounds like, healthcare aside, a shithole organization to work for.

If Biden's statements are in fact true and the Obama administration did not know about the requests for increased security in Libya or the reduction in security in response to the requests for increased security then there is something seriously wrong within the Obama administration. This is a great reason to replace it with a Republican administration.
If Biden's statements are in fact true and the Obama administration was being told by intelligence sources that the events occuringin Libya were in response to a you tube video, and all of the public announcements were made to that effect without vetting the information first the Obama administration is incompetant and needs to be replaced by Republicans.
If on the other hand Biden and the administration knew exactly what happened then the Obama administration is trying to cover up what really happened there.(They did have a live feed from the security cameras in Libya) Intelligence officers were monitoring those camera feeds. The Obama administration is guilty of telling lies to the American people and to the world. Heck they even spent 70k to advertise this lie in Pakistan. There would be two motivations to do this. One is to tell the arab world "it isn't our fault a filmaker did it." The other is to perpetuate the lie that terrorism is dead because Obama killed it.
In the latter case of the Obama administration is just as guilty as Nixon was at Watergate. A major election is/was at stake in both instances. The facts were obscurred to gain a political advantage over the opponent in both cases.
I think we need to investigate the facts and initiate impeachement proceedings against Obama for his crimes against the country and our constitution.
What is the difference between Watergate,and Benghazi-Gate?

correct,watergate does not compare with benghazi-gate,no one died
with the watergate scandal..this is an absolute pre election cover
up,of the worst possible kind,revealing the fanatical mind set of
those dedicated to imposing their radical,communist based proven to be failure beliefs,upon us their employers..We have DHS,TSA,CIA,
NSA,DSI,FBI,even Mossad at our disposal what possible explanation
is there for the lies,blame they are heaping upon all our intelligence agencies? Clinton,Panetta et al together with our so called Oxmoron justice dept,are all in the tank,lets get rid of
the whole stinking morass in NOV!!

More good news for the easily fooled:

Richard Foster, chief actuary for Medicare, warned Congress that seniors will have difficulty finding doctors and institutions to accept Medicare. Doctors who do accept Medicare will not want to spend time doing procedures such as hip replacements when the pay is so low. Yet the law bars them from providing the care you want for an extra fee. You’re trapped.

Foster also warned that within a decade, 40 percent of health-care institutions could be forced to operate at a loss. New York hospitals are bracing for the hit.

When hospitals run in the red, they can employ fewer nurses and buy less diagnostic equipment.

Now you know why I've been saying the black out media being cheerleaders for those in power is very dangerous.

We're witnessing how propaganda and brainwashing works right here.

After posting numerous posts citing very credible sources about the dangers ahead under Obamacare, some still prefer to believe it just ain't so because they've been brainwashed by the cheerleaders.

Very dangerous, indeed. This is precisely how dictators rise to power. Control over the media.

Betsy McCaughey?? Lol. The Death Panel Queen? Riiight.

Betsy McCaughey, Liar

Betsy McCaughey is a professional liar. She lies. The things she writes are untrue. They are not even "distortions." They are made-up. Everyone has known this for years and yet she was still allowed to derail the nation.

McCaughey's schtick, as described by James Fallows, is to pose as a disinterested, objective researcher who is just shocked and dismayed to find something insane and evil in a piece of legislation supported by a Democratic president.

And then she sits down to write a very serious and nonpartisan and concerned piece of analysis of this evil thing in the legislation that she made up. And then some respectable outlet publishes her serious analysis. And then, within minutes, partisan Republican columnists, talk radio hosts, politicians, and operatives are disseminating talking points taken directly from that serious piece of entirely made-up bullshit analysis.

I know I'm wasting my time but gotta keep trying.

The Associated Press reports:

Two of the central promises of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law are unlikely to be fulfilled, Medicare's independent economic expert told Congress on Wednesday.

The landmark legislation probably won't hold costs down, and it won't let everybody keep their current health insurance if they like it, Chief Actuary Richard Foster told the House Budget Committee. His office is responsible for independent long-range cost estimates.

Now get this - if that's even possible...

Foster not only works for the Obama administration but is also the administration's principal authority on Medicare and Medicaid spending.~

Somebody PLEASE acknowledge you at least get this.

Okay then, how about the Associated Press? Is there any news source that is credible to you?

Or how about a CNN video saying the exact same thing?

Did you guys hear anything about a shot was fired through a window at Obama Campaign office?

If this is true, that is not right, even if the man is for abortion, and you think he is dummer than a bag of hammers, and not fit to be our President. this does not give anyone the right to do something like this. Hurting/killing a man, or another adult in that office, is just as bad as hurting or killing a baby by abortion. If you don't like Obama, just don't vote for him.
