Step away from the right wing blogs/FOX.
Because obviously teens don't learn in school and pay attention properly and end up becoming pregnant. And teens also actually try to become pregnant too.

There was nothing in the post you responded to about teens and contraceptives. It concerned the belief that most Americans hold that access to Birth Control is part of any standard health care plan.
I know that the post wasn't about the actual use of birth control itself, I just wanted to raise the subject.

Why don’t 47 percent of Americans pay federal income taxes? One major reason: Tax credits that were passed with major bipartisan support — namely the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit. And there’s a wealth of research showing that both of these tax breaks have been effective at lifting these Americans out of poverty and encourage them to move from welfare to work.

So are you finally blaming both Democrats and Republicans for past mistakes and not looking ahead?

Because the article clearly stated "...passed with MAJOR BIPARTISAN support..."

November was the best month for auto sales in the US since January 2008. The Detroit three all showed increases with Chrysler leading the way with a 14% gain over last year. The Asians also showed gains with Honda sales improving a whopping 38% over last November.
Obviously Obama's reelection bolstered consumer confidence.
The question is, who is buying these cars. According to sonic's sources only corporations are making any money.

Tax Credits were especially favored by Republicans who viewed these as a better alternative than raising the minimum wage.

Video: Fox News Defends President Over High Gas Prices

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/video-fox-news-def...
You must be a liberals because you do not get it!!!

See? Let me explain:

Bush was viciously attacked by ignorant liberals like you for high had prices. But in reality Bush had nothing to do with it, we conservatives understand the economy, liberals do not, but that did matter because Bush was nevertheless attacked for something he had no control over, but we conservatives knew better.

Liberals stand at gas stations interviewing motorist's hardship of high gas prices!!!

But we conservatives knows better!

Now, that gas is high, you see no liberal scum like you interviewing motorists on the hard ship of high gas prices and we conservatives, who knew all along the president do not control gas prices, were unmoved.

However, Obamas moratorium on the gulf and the killing of the oil pipeline DO brings the gas prices higher!!!

So are you saying you WOULDN'T have a problem with a Republican president increasing the debt by $6 trillion if the housing market collapse had taken place under a former Democrat president's watch and conservatives blamed the former Democrat president for something he had absolutely no control over because of a bipartisan Congress not heeding his warnings?

Would need to see the by region numbers to know how much__math says that it was a terrific month even without Sandy.
They are still without electricity!!!

But the liberal media is conveniently ignoring the news because liberals are easy to fool.

They do not accept non-union help!!!

Liberalism in display!

Worst than Katrina but liberals are easy to fool.

Obama's response to Sandy worst than Katrina, liberals are easy to fool!

http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/11/04/...

Giuliani said “[Obama] right now is doing a terrible job of disaster relief in my city, but no one is talking about it…People don’t have water, they don’t have food, electricity and his FEMA is no where to be found. This is a worse response than Katrina.” He also levelled the charge during a Fox News appearance, telling host Neil Cavuto that the notion FEMA was doing a good job was a “joke:”
I think maybe because there’s an election going on, people don’t want to say that, but I think FEMA has dropped the ball, certainly as big they did with Katrina, maybe bigger because they had more warning here and the situation isn’t as big as Katrina.
