America as "we?"

One Jimmy John's franchise owner is going rogue.

While the CEO of the national chain of sandwich shops has publicly railed against the costs of implementing the Affordable Care Act, Dean Hodges of Omaha, Neb., is working non-stop to figure out how to bring health care to his employees at the 18 Jimmy John's outposts he franchises.

Hodges said that he doesn't care much about the comments made by Jimmy John's founder and CEO James 'Jimmy John' Liautaud, who told Fox News in October that the Affordable Care Act would force him to cut workers' hours.

The corporate office does "not dictate what we can and cannot do," Hodges wrote in an email to The Huffington Post.

Hodges employs about 550 people in Nebraska, Idaho and Nevada. He says he isn't necessarily taking a stand for or against the law, but is simply looking for a way to make it work. "I'm trying to save for it and plan for it so I can comply with the government, provide health care and still pay for it."

I'm surprised he hasn't died of a heart attack yet. He's big and fat and screams for hours everyday, jumping up and down like a damn fool, smokes cigars and is a junkie on oxycontin.

So we can look forward to a President who wants only tax increases and is unwilling to discuss any reductions in spending or entitlements, as evidenced by his campaign commercial today.
Thanks in part to Romney's 47% film and the Tea Party campaign. Tea Party handed the Democratic party victory.
Thanks for all your posts!

<quoted text>funding by Democrats with an open taxpayer checkbook.
How long can the business model of the Democratic Party last?
The short answer is, not very. Dems are doomed by their success at creating ever bigger government with ever more handouts and entitlements. All the giving can’t go on and the Obama binge has created a crisis.
Deficits exceeded $1 trillion in each year of his first term, and his combined debt is a staggering $5 trillion. It brings the nation’s total to $16 trillion, and the possibility of default already has caused one rating downgrade.
And there is no end to the spending spree. Obama’s last budget, although chock full of rosy scenarios, still projected the debt would grow by $6.7 trillion over 10 years.
Thus, if all goes as planned, he will leave office with a national debt of $20 trillion, and a debt-to-GDP ratio far above 100 percent.
That’s Greece. It is an unsustainable governing model, so we should be asking not just about the demographic destiny of the GOP, but also how soon Dems will be condemned by the fiscal facts.
Clearly, they don’t want to face the numbers. The president has a fetish for hiking taxes on high earners, saying he didn’t care whether they would produce more revenue because “fairness” was more important.
He wasn’t kidding, as his continuing campaign proves. He declared Monday that Republicans would ruin Christmas for millions of families if they didn’t agree with his tax plan, proving again that re-election didn’t soften his “my way or the highway” attitude.
Equally revealing, congressional Dems tell The New York Times they refuse to make major changes to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, even though those programs are driving the debt and deficit.
Yet liberal senators, including Tom Harkin of Iowa and Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, urged Obama to reject changes that “would cut benefits, shift costs to states, alter the structure” of the programs or pare them for deficit reduction.
That stance perfectly captures the party’s contribution to gridlock. Even as Republicans agree to increased revenues through reducing deductions in the tax code, Dems reject any changes to entitlements. So, who is really playing chicken at the fiscal cliff?
That so much attention is focused on whether Republicans will agree to tax hikes reveals mainstream media bias and Obama’s efforts to distract attention from the frightening dimensions of his fiscal folly.
Even if he gets his tax hikes, he would collect at most $90 billion a year, and that assumes growth would not be affected. What spending cuts is he prepared to demand from his party as part of a deficit-reduction deal?
So far, the answer is zero, a number that corresponds to the chances that Dems will govern responsibly.

Then certainly you heard about DuPont furnishing the powder for both sides.

DOW is up nicely today astounding the experts as usual so they're blabbing about shyt that doesn't matter like the effect of student loans on the economy.

Those azzholes get paid for those little 3 minute "expert" appearances on the cable news networks.

I think that FOX should give our Carol a show. Yeah, that's the ticket__the Lorac hour__sponsored by the creators of fluoxetine.
