You blameyour ignorance on spell check programs??

Try again, nitwit.

Find me a spellchecker that can't spell 'clamoring'.

Your english as a second language is the problem here, filipino. Along with your low IQ.

Can you explain why birth control should be different from any other medical service in that it should be provided free?
Free?

Aren't most preventative care measures provided at little or no out of pocket cost to the covered individual?

<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."

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!!
None are so blind as those who will not see. That be you, Lorac!!
And obamacare is a giant gift to insurance companies. And let's not forget all the gifts it took to get enough votes.

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.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/...
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.
