I was referring to the Republican party...What is their plan? Obama did something and there are many things that he can improve on, just maybe if he had a Congress that was as interested in the American people as him we could accomplish something. I personally don't have to worry about healthcare, but I hate to see my fellow man, woman and child go without. Not one American should ever suffer or be left unattended. If the Republicans spent as much time on healthcare as they do cuddling up to the NRA and the medical profession we could get something done.

Some of it has to do with new procedures and technology. Some has to do with the costs of education and the increase in the costs of staff. Some is because mom thinks she has to take Jr to the doctor for every sniffle and bumped knee. Another reason is doctors are running every test they can think of to keep from being sued. The idea of insurance that covers everything so the patient has no concern for the costs of said tests. I'm sure there are others but that should do for a start.

Back to the old saw that one member of the minority party in the House brought down the entire three house majority of Republicans and thus the american dream.

There were Republicans who are just as much to blame.

But Democrats are most responsible for this mess - hands down.

Democrats had sixty years of virtually unbroken power in Congress - with substantial majorities most of the time. Can a group of smart people studying issue after issue for years on end with virtually unlimited resources at their command not come up with a single policy that works?

For many it is simply a matter of eliciting votes from a targeted constituency at taxpayer expense; we lose a little, they gain a lot, and the politician keeps his job.

For others, the failure is deliberate. It has a name: the Cloward-Piven Strategy - Orchestrated Crisis.

The Strategy was first elucidated in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation magazine by a pair of radical socialist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. David Horowitz summarizes it as:

"The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The 'Cloward-Piven Strategy' seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse."

This is the strategy that has permeated the Democrat Party and has escalated over a relatively short amount of time - President Obama represents the epitiomy and the success of that strategy.

<quoted text> Yes so? You are comparing countries the size of a state to the whole US.. Just what I wonder would it be if you combined enough of them to equal the size of the US. Plus I'm sure they don't have the slackers and illegals that we do.
Did you miss it? Down at the bottom of the chart:

Weighted average: 8.3%

That's combining "enough of them to equal the size of the US". Compare that to our 13.8%.

Here's another:

He's just counting on you being as stupid as he thinks you are.
Bush didn't care about 9-11. Maybe they didn't want those buildings anymore in New York.
Who helped them fly the planes into the towers?
Maybe they didn't know that they would die.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is not happy that Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post awarded him a "Worst Week In Washington" award for speculating about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emotions this week as she testified about the deadly attacks on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

"Oh no, he didnít!" wrote Cillizza. "Itís one thing to disagree about whether the gen≠esis of the Benghazi attack is critical to understanding how to prevent future assaults. Itís another entirely to insinuate that Clinton cried on command, faking tears to avoid facing the music."

You really don't see the punitive/controlling/oppressiv e nature of Obamacare and the inevitable/impending inefficiency of government trying to manage health care in a country of this size and population?
Much smaller countries like Greece and France are struggling to maintain this kind of health care system without quality of care suffering. They're failing.
Well gee son. In the case of the USSR, it as the military that killed the country.

So by your "logic," it's the military we need to go after.

So end Medicare/Medicaid and privatize all education and end all governmental support for education and eliminate the FDA.

lol! The intelligence came from bushie son. So yes, they did have the same intelligence that bushie crafted.

As for Fannie / Freddie, in case you haven't noticed lately, they're forcing banks to pay a penalty and take back loans.

You people need to get the facts straight son. Instead of just listening to yourselves!

Wrong answer but thank you for playing. ACA was the resulting compromise to GOP opposition of the originally proposed single payer option. So, in effect the GOP authored the ACA.
