Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

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.
You better start worrying about it Ghostie all that is going to change under Obamacare.

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.

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

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."
http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/09/barack...
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.
oh geez that sounds pretty bad.

any timetable on when you conservatives will shut that down?

The only ones who lied were Democrats when they said Bush lied even if they had the same intelligence and stated Saddam was a threat long before 9/11 after it became politically expedient.
The only ones who lied were Democrats who insisted there was nothing wrong with Fannie and Freddie despite the numerous warnings by Bush and Bernanke for personal and political gain.
And President Obama is still doing it - for political expediency and personal gain.
He's just counting on you being as stupid as he thinks you are.
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.

I know, facts just suck don't they?
There are factors I'm sure are not included in there like illegals. Plus you have to figure in that a lot of those just tell you to go home you are not worth the cost of that treatment. Best watch what you wish for.

You obviously have no clue what "Redistribution of Wealth" refers to and as for controlling people it was Republicans who want to control women's bodies & who can get married.

For over a decade prior to the bubble collapse the GOP had "unbroken power in Congress".

Now, how 'bout that one about the kid with the beans.

You gun nuts are pathetically programmed stooges for the NRA, do you seriously think they really care about anything other than gaining wealth? No one has ever tried to take away private gun ownership,besides things are far different now than when our nation needed an armned militia which was the sole reason for that being in the constitution.
We now are required to have safety belts in cars,,,DUH, we have lots of requirements now that we didn't have years ago. We as a society have more than proven that we have to be protected from our selves. With every gunnut in the US able to purchase any weapon they choose...Get real..Cowboy idiots. Maybe when Animals start to shoot back then we can upgrade. Common sense laws are just that.
We currently have more guns than the next 17 nations combined...over 3,000 of our children die needlessly every year. Responsible gun control has become a necessity in this country. The NRA plays you people like they own you and then you go out and prove that to be true.
Damn how many guns and ammo clips is enough, we desperatly need gun legislation and common sense weapons, along with background checks on all owners, how you gun nuts can't see that is mind boggling. I repeat your argument that the government is taking away your rights to bear arms is a stupid one and isn't true. How many must die before we do something.
Ghostie, Again you better read and understand the Second Amendment, before you go off, half- cocked....It also protects us from the government.

Given the choice between Medicare/Medicaid and single payer, single payer is the most cost effective way to go if you compare our per capita healthcare spending with single payer countries. I don't think the ACA's gonna bridge that cost gap.
I had hoped that that would have been the goal , but given the extreme position of the opposition, this compromise was left wanting. The good things are that insurance companies must spend 80% on healthcare and eliminating the pre existing clause. Lets see what happens.

In the face of facts you retreat into mumbling rhetoric.

"What if"
"Maybe"
"Stands to reason"
