Your analysis of Greece and social democracy was right on the mark.
However, your figure about the cost Medicare Part D was off the charts. The CBO estimated the cost at $724 billion. A far cry from $7 trillion.
Obamacare will cost $1.7 trillion. A far cry from $724 billion.
Obama increased the deficit by $6 trillion under his watch which exceeded Bush's entire 8 years.
The numbers always stack up against Obama far more than Bush. As much as some would like to believe otherwise.
You fail to mention that Bush's Medicare Drug Plan was a giant gift to drug companies.

He failed to allow the Gov't to negotiate prices paid for drugs, making the programfar more expensive than it needed to be.

Who negotiates for drkug prices?? The VA and Medicaid programs. Both proven to have saved taxpayers Billions by negotiating for the best price.

Once again, Dubya gave a giant gift to his wealthy sponsors.

You really don't get it, do you?? After all these years, you still don't get it!!

Obama invests in tax, first the poor, now the rich. He is trying to cutback again on the poor, so he can increase the riches money, so after that, he can go back to the poor again with the excuse that the rich wasn't enough, so it doesn't look like he is just scrounging for tax. He also supports the PBS, which allows unmonitered material on television and onto our children, as well as having biased news articles unchecked. He is allowing the DREAM act bill, which allows illegal immigrant children to progress and take peoples jobs and damage america. He also allows murderous abortion, as well as condoms which is decreasing our population, as well as encouraging more teens to have sex and increasing teen pregnancy. He is also allowing gay marriage, which will turn children into sexual deviants and gay converts, as well as destroy the american family.
More American abortions more Muslims take over!!!

And you believe that Zimmerman killed Trayvon just because he is black!!!
And Obama did not closer oil production in the gulf nor killed the oil pipeline from Canada and he has nothing to do with the high price of gas!!!
See? You think you are smart but you are a liberal instead!!
High gas prices hurts companies bottoms line, less hiring, more expenses, nothing in return because of Obama's policies against oil!!!
Solar panels and expensive efficiency windows can not make up for Obama's incompetent policies that bring the price of oil high!!!
During Bush there were liberal media interviewing the pain of paying $2.00 a gallon at a gas station. Where are they now at $4.00 a gallon?
Nowhere thereby confirming that we conservatives are right because the liberals are hypocrites!!
Gas was $4.00 a gallon in 2008. And so.....

Most Americans say that employers -- even religious ones -- should provide birth control coverage to their employees, according to a survey released on Monday (Dec. 3).
The poll by LifeWay Research also showed that almost two-thirds of Americans (63 percent) believe businesses should be required to provide the coverage for free, even if contraception conflicts with the owner's religious ethics.

It's been an extremely bad year for right wing talking points.
Can you explain why birth control should be different from any other medical service in that it should be provided free?

<quoted text>One thing I still don't understand from all you anti-tax Repubs is that for 10 years now the tax rates on everyone has been the lowest in US history. 10 YEARS!!!!!! To hear you all it sounds like we are back in the Reagan years when the highest tax rate was 50%.
You really think that taxing small business to 100% will stop Obama from giving money to his friend for his own reelection!!!!

You must be liberal!!!

You blameyour ignorance on spell check programs??

<quoted text>Hurricane Sandy also had something to do with car sales in November.
It's been reported that 250,000 vehicles were destroyed in that storm and that many again damaged so it's possible that Sandy had a positive effect on November's sales.

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

Petraeus for president? Fox’s Ailes seemed to like the idea
""Fox News chairman Roger Ailes wanted Gen. David Petraeus to run for president in 2012.
Ailes, former campaign adviser to Richard Nixon, sent a Fox News contributor to Afghanistan in the spring of 2011 to deliver the message to Petraeus, the Washington Post's Bob Woodward reports. The recently disgraced director of the Central Intelligence Agency was then commander of U.S. and allied forces in Kabul.
Kathleen T. McFarland, the contributor, and a former national security and Pentagon aide, spoke with Petraeus for 90 minutes in the general's office there. Woodward obtained an audio recording of the conversation, which was posted on the Post's website.
"[Ailes] loves you, and everybody at Fox loves you," McFarland told Petraeus at one point.
Near the end of their conversation, McFarland relayed the message from Ailes: If President Obama offered Petraeus the job of chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, take it. "If you're offered anything else," McFarland said, "don't take it. Resign in six months and run for president. Okay?"And I know you're not running for president," McFarland added. "But at some point when you go to New York next, you may want to just chat with Roger. And Rupert Murdoch, for that matter."
"Well, Rupert's after me, as well," Petraeus replied. "Look, what I have told people is, I truly want to continue to serve my country if it is in a, you know, a quite significantly meaningful position. And there's all of about two of those in the world. You all have really got to shut your mouths—or shut your ... yeah, shut your mouths, too."
"I'm only reporting this back to Roger," McFarland assured Petraeus. "That's our deal."
Petraeus said he would consider the position of Joint Chiefs chairman and possibly "one other" post, "but that's about it. I'm not going to, you know, go to NATO meetings for the rest of my life, or fight service budget battles or anything like that," he said.
Petraeus was appointed CIA director in September 2011. He resigned last month after admitting to an extramarital affair with Paula Broadwell, his biographer.
Ailes confirmed to Woodward that he did give McFarland advice to deliver to Petraeus, but it was meant in jest.
"It was more of a joke, a wiseass way I have," Ailes said. "I thought the Republican field needed to be shaken up and Petraeus might be a good candidate. It sounds like she thought she was on a secret mission in the Reagan administration. She was way out of line.... It's someone's fantasy to make me a kingmaker. It's not my job."

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.
