Nobody is bitching about Fema, they are bitching about the power company's inability to restore power in a timely fashion.

So, Homer, what's going on with high-profile officials expected to leave Obama's Cabinet soon?

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta
Eric Holder (maybe)
Director of the CIA, General Patraeus

What does all this mean, Homer?

Everyone's jumping ship after Obama won again.

<quoted text> Striker, not sure of the spelling, whose CEO is a top Obama fundraiser announced they are closing plants and laying off 1,500 employees due to the 2.3% medical equipment tax imposed by Obamacare. Blows that out of the water.
Romneylike vampire capitalists, but never let a crisis (or a chance to bash Obama) go unused. " Don't buy the Corporate PR. It's just an excuse to continue business as usual, but at an accelerated rate. BSC and Stryker were off-shoring and out-sourcing long before the tax was passed and will continue to do so if it is repealed.
BSC-Miami, relocated to Costa Rica
BSC-Fremont MFG consolidated Cork, Ireland
Stryker-Gaymar Plant closure for restructuring, not taxes as now claimed ( http://www.buffalonews.com/business/article81... )
Medtronic - announced cuts in May as part of reorganization and market changes (not taxes)
Zimmer - said it was taking on a restructuring effort aimed at eventual yearly pretax savings of more than $100 million in January 2012.

Besides, the tax applies to all medical devices; domestic and imported."

Welcome to our health care system in 2015.
Do you bitch that much about the government health care you yourself are on? Medicare. Why don't the next time you have a medical bill take a stand for freedom and pay the damn bill out of your pocket.

Perhaps his competition will grow in his place, produce a superior product, and provide even more, and perhaps better paying, employment opportunities.

Isn't that the general idea of 'dog-eat-dog' capitalism? Be better than one's competitor?

Maybe, if the 'Titans of Industry' would pay as much attention to the health of employees as to the health of profit margin, we wouldn't need to invite the government to see that they do.

Most had announced their "intended" departure well before the election carol.

More interesting is who might replace these capable cabinet members.

Sorry for buttin in Homer__it's veterans day and I'm pulling rank.

Hint: Obamacare.
How about the Church gets out of our legislation, and into the tax system??

I haven't been able to stand the health care system in this country long before Clinton was elected.

Let's solve the real problems instead of making them worse.

So, what part of the nations "health care system" upsets you? Please be specific OK?

Before you get started dear carol, keep in mind that there are parts of the US where the health care system works very nicely.

I find it ironic that my polling place is in a church. Just saying.

Some lady was handing out Romney flyers at the polling place, Homer skirted by within the 10 foot limit, she still tried to accost me, I told her no thanks. She managed to hand a few out, one poor woman carried hers inside and had it out and proceeded to get yelled at by the 90 year old poll taker, "You can't bring that in here!"

I felt bad for the woman, she was like "Well, I didn't mean too, somebody just handed it to me outside."
