GOP Governors Scramble to Comply With Obamacare

As states near a critical decision regarding Obamacare by Friday, many GOP governors once opposed to the healthcare law are gradually accepting House Speaker John Boehner’s declaration that Obamacare is now “the law of the land.”

“The election is over and President Obama won,” one of Obamacare’s strongest opponents, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, said earlier this week in dropping his opposition to the law.

“I’m responsible for the families of Florida,” Scott said, whose state has nearly 4 million uninsured people.“If I can get to ‘yes,’ I want to get to ‘yes.’”

Republicans had plenty of opportunities between their blocking of Hillary-care to the enactment of Obamacare.
So please, cut the crap.
Republicans had no interest in resolving healthcare issues.
But you idiots run screaming through the streets blaming Democrats yet if Republicans had addressed these things when they held the White House, then healthcare would be reformed in the Republican way & be the law of the land.
So instead of blaming Democrats, you sorry-assed, whining, lying right wingers need to blame your own party.
We got Obamacare because you morons did not enact healthcare when you held Congress & the White House.
Just as many democrats ditched Hillarycare as republicans.

So you cut the crap.

We kind of got sidetracked with 3000 Americans killed in the most unimagineable way on 9/11/2001.

Please tell me when democrats ever took up the cause of health care again after Hillarycare was put in file 13 - by both parties? Democrats had control of Congress during part of the Bush years too. Why didn't they come up with another plan?

Christie Says He Disagrees With Romney’s ‘Gifts’ Comment: Can’t Be ‘Divisive’ Leader

"You have to talk about themes, policies that unite people and play to their aspirations and their goals and their hopes for their family and their neighbors. And I always think this is scapegoating after elections. When you lose, you lost. Someone asked me, why did Mitt Romney lose? That's why."

Hostess is history! Another fine American business killed by a union. You libtards are destroying this country. The workers wanted to go back to work but the bigwigs threaten them with fines if they crossed the picket line. So now 18,500 people are out of work. Sure most will be rehired by the new companies but how long will that take? Friggin' unions are ruining this country.

New taxes under Obamacare:
A 3.8% surtax on dividends. Taxes on dividends will rise from 15% to 43.8%.
A 0.9% surtax on Medicare taxes - 1.45% to 2.35%.
Flexible Spending Account contributions will be capped at $2,500. If you have been socking away $10,000 in your FSA to pay medical bills, you'll have to cut that to $2,500.
The itemized-deduction for medical expenses is going up to 10% of adjusted gross income.
The penalty on non-medical withdrawals from Healthcare Savings Accounts is now 20% instead of 10%.
A tax of 10% on indoor tanning services. This has been in place for two years.
A 40% tax on "Cadillac Health Care Plans" starting in 2018. If your employer pays for all or most of your healthcare plan, you will have to pay a 40% tax on the amount your employer pays.
(The 2018 start date is said to have been a gift to unions which often have comprehensive plans.)
A "Medicine Cabinet Tax" eliminates the ability to pay for over-the-counter medicines from a pre-tax Flexible Spending Account started in January 2011.
A "penalty" tax for those who don't buy health insurance. This will phase in from 2014-2016. It will range from $695 per person to about $4,700 per person depending on your income.
A tax on medical devices costing more than $100. Starting in 2013, medical device manufacturers will have to pay a 2.3% excise tax on medical equipment. This is expected to raise the cost of medical procedures.
The big ones--the 3.8% investment income hike and the Medicare tax increase--only hit you if you're making more than $200,000 a year. The rest hit you no matter how much you're making.

Outraged Mitt has his security guards take a sample to the lab for forensic analysis only to report both good and bad news.
The urine is Baracks but it is Ann's handwriting.
Michelle Obama visited Ann Romney recently and found her painting her mansion walls. She was wearing a new fur coat and a nice denim jacket. Michelle Obama thinking this was a little strange, asked Ann why she was wearing them rather than old clothes or overalls. Ann Romney showed Michelle Obama the instructions on the paint can. For best results put on two coats.

Problem is, they stole nothing. Perhaps you should do some research instead of parroting liberal talking points.

This history goes back a long, long, long, long way. Biblical prophecy is filled with talk about Jeruselem being a cornerstone in the history of mankind.

The real smear campaign was right wing PAC's lying every two minutes non stop.

But the relevant voters can figure out who the scumbags are: Republicans!

Hey mannnnnn! Keep up that: it's 1950 in America schtick! Republicans hate women, gays, non Christians, and non whites. It's so easy to spot liars! Today's voters have grown up with black heroes on their walls. They accept gay rights and attend gay marriages. They want rights between a woman and her Dr. left intact.

How can you blame just Republican's for any of that? Who was writing the checks? Who was in running Congress when those things were voted for and approved?

Funny that liberals blame the Congress for everything they don't want tagged to their mesiah, and yet when a R is sitting in the White House and the Congress is controlled by Dems....it's all on the guy at the top then.

Our countries problems were brought about by BOTH parties. BOTH!!! Neither party represents the American people and neither party really gives a sh*t what the American people want.

Republicans took over Congress in 1995. They defeated healthcare reform yet did not even talk about healthcare reform.

And really, playing the 9-11 card? Really.

Republicans had time, at a time of war, to push through their unfunded tax cuts, unfunded medicare expansion, record unfunded earmarks. So Carol, step out of your denial & admit that Republicans had no intent on restructuring our healthcare. None.

If they did, you wouldn't be here lying & bitching about Obamacare.

Wall Street Journal - Obama's Dividend Assault: A plan to triple the tax rate would hurt all shareholders.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405297...

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- Eighteen CEOs urged Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner this week to rethink the Obama administration's proposal to raise the 15% tax rate on dividends and capital gains for high-income households.

A hike in investment tax rates "could spark a new wave of volatility in our financial markets and give a competitive edge to overseas corporations at a time when we need capital formation here in America to create jobs and expand our economy," the CEOs said in an opinion article for Politico.

That was quite a stage performance by the Napoleonic caricature of a man who calls himself president Obama.
Obama supporters must be some of the most feeble minded organisms on the planet to lap up Obama's B.S.
Far be it from the gallant man Obama or any of his noble cronies to besmirch anyones reputation.
Integrity and morality is simply oozing from every orafice on the left.

The human capacity for self-delusion never ceases to amaze me, so it shouldn't surprise me that so many Republicans seem to genuinely believe that they are the party of fiscal responsibility. Perhaps at one time they were, but those days are long gone.

This fact became blindingly obvious to me six years ago this month when a Republican president and a Republican Congress enacted the Medicare drug benefit, which former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker has called "the most fiscally irresponsible piece of legislation since the 1960s."

They still don't get it. Mitt ran on what the party stands for. The people voted against it. Get over it.
Now they want to recreate themselves; how is that possible?
If they all of a sudden become in favor of gay rights, gay marriage, womens rights, civil rights, amnesty, universal healthcare etc., well, then they're Democrats!

we petition the obama administration to:
Put an end to the destruction of unborn babies through Abortions.
women are now having abortions because they do not like the sex of the fetus. If they had to pay for those abortions we will see how quickly the abortions would diminish.
The government is wasting millions of dollars, to permit women to act as prostitutes, and have no fear of becoming pregnant, for they can get an abortion. This act not only destroys the unborn child, but also destroys the woman that has them. Their minds, and morals will suffer because of an act sanctioned by the US Government.
