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.

I'm begging you now.

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.

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

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/medicare-...

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

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/2012/10/1...

Maybe it's possible you're just dead wrong and refuse to admit it?

Now I know how Jesus felt, dragging the heavy cross up the cobbled streets as the locals poured urine on him and reached out and slapped his testicles. This is what I meant to say.

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.

Well Liberals/Democrats would tell you it isn’t so!! Rationing Begins: States Limiting Drug Prescriptions for Medicaid Patients!! Doctors Shortages will lead to “A shortage of primary-care and other physicians could mean more-limited access to health care and longer wait times for patients," the people the Liberals claim to have compassion for will be most affected!!

Well, it's not a pyramid, but at least it's a monumental concrete structure and it was done well. I comfort myself by realizing that Ronald Reagan is buried in concrete.

"Palm Beach, Fla.(CBS TAMPA)– The Florida State Board of Education passed a plan that sets goals for students in math and reading based upon their race.
On Tuesday, the board passed a revised strategic plan that says that by 2018, it wants 90 percent of Asian students, 88 percent of white students, 81 percent of Hispanics and 74 percent of black students to be reading at or above grade level. For math, the goals are 92 percent of Asian kids to be proficient, whites at 86 percent, Hispanics at 80 percent and blacks at 74 percent. It also measures by other groupings, such as poverty and disabilities, reported the Palm Beach Post."

Sorry blacks, Florida liberal teachers say you're the dumbest 'race' out there.

Billionaire William Koch is facing a lawsuit in federal court from a former top-level employee who claims the energy mogul lured him to a secluded property, where he was imprisoned and interrogated for a period of time, according to a report in Courthouse News.

Martensen alleges he was told by his superiors that he was transferred overseas to Asia so that the Koch company could avoid paying U.S. taxes on some $200,000,000 in profits.

Through his privately held companies -- Oxbow Carbon and Huron Carbon -- Bill Koch has given $3 million to the pro-Mitt Romney super PAC Restore Our Future. His more well-known brothers have given substantially more to the effort to elect the Republican presidential candidate.

Yes, shooting someone is different than just saying you're going to shoot someone, killl the kids and put the mangled bodies in a crate to ship back to Africa. It's like Pastor Bob says, "If blacks were supposed to be diurnal God wouldn't have let them out in the daytime."

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.

They should work as slaves for the 1% to get richer. I hope they unionize. He pays them $2.13 an hour and they share tips with non wait staff, the customer is paying his staff.

You keep responding to my post about the Ryan/Romney “budget” with diatribes about President Obama. You can win more converts with reason than with tangential thinking and insults.
