Barack Obama, our next President

By this panel's refusal to fairly compensate Medicare doctors, the market will dry up and finding a Medicare Doctor will become impossible for many older Americans. This is "cost savings" for the system. I have personally spoken with physicians who say just what I wrote above.
The expression "Death Panel" may be seen as hyperbole and pooh-poohed by Liberal snakes but the effect will be the same.
Liberal/Socialist Rule: NEVER call things what they are but find some harmless sounding replacement for it.
"Efficiency Panel" sounds a lot better than "Death Panel" for elder care.
There is no reduction to doctors in the ACA.

Shakalaka reflects the intellectual level of the typical juvenile female Obamabot.
Notable exceptions are Demos/Tenzing/Nucular, Yepperz/Jean, Realtime/GOPidiots, Ghost/Debil, and the numerous variations of the Chicago scumbag primarily known as Dem.
Note: All the "Waxturd" stuff is boring and easily skipped, as are all posts about the judging icons.
If you're still lumping me in with Nuculer then you're not taking either of our posts at face value.

"Death panel" is, perhaps, a hyperbole.
The truth is there will be government-appointed persons who will advise physicians in determining quality of life over cost ratio for treatments and procedures.
You can see the connection. The government will be the main health care insurer at the taxpayers' expense, and they will want to keep costs down.
There is no government option, dumbasss.

The panel provides the best options only to treat certain conditions. It does not make any decisions.

Decisions are made by the doctors & patients.

I challenge anyone on here to prove the media has been covering these issues with as much ferver as we all know they would if a Republican were in the White House.
And then convince the rest of us why a silent media when it comes to the other party is not a dangerous situation.
the one about Menendez covers it all...

the right wing media has lied so much that in the eyes of the majority they're stuck in permanent 'cry wolf' mode.

not saying that's the way is should be, but that is the reality that FOX has to deal with. a realty they could ignore...if...Mitt had won the election on the back of FOX lies.

Weekend Flashback: Cruz Goes All McCarthy on Hagel
http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/t...
pointless exercise. Hagel will be the next SOD. not even in doubt.
there is a small portion of the Senate that thinks it is above reproach. an arrogance that is usually totally unearned. on top of that fact they are once again on the wrong side of the majority.
can someone explain how anyone can think they can win when they are constantly in the minority? and how does that garner respect? beyond the Colbert Report.
I think it was the neocons sending a message that they were still in control of the party in the face of rising republican realism.

These were models. Not someone purposefully putting out wrong numbers.

Senate Republicans Squandered a Big Opportunity Yesterday to Help Their Party

It’s that seething disdain for Hagel that is so remarkable. Republican hard-liners have contributed to their party’s defeats in three of the last four elections, and they inflicted long-term damage on their party’s reputation on foreign policy by embracing the biggest foreign policy blunder in a generation, and now they are furious with Hagel because he’s one of the few national Republicans to recognize reality. McCain’s obsession with insisting on the rightness of the “surge” that failed on the Bush administration’s own terms is one example of this refusal to cope with reality.

If it were just McCain doing this, we could dismiss it as part of a long pattern of his embittered reactions to past political defeats. The amazing thing is that virtually every Republican member of the committee yesterday pretended to be just as incensed and outraged by Hagel as McCain was. Four of the Republican members are new Senators elected in 2010 or last year, and in some respects the new members were worse than McCain in trying to prove their hard-line credentials. Senate Republicans had an opportunity yesterday to demonstrate that they had learned something from the failures of the Bush era and the folly of hard-line policies, and they threw it away without giving it a moment’s thought.

You failed with this yesterday, I like to think most normal people would try a different approach.

Only because it is impossible to permit new coal fired plants in the US, even with the best technology. And if you read your article, you would know that most of China's plants lack air pollution controls, and that those that have controls often do not operate the controls (because they reduce net power output).
They did build those plants earlier but lately have gone to better coal plants.

sorry. no one sends me right wing chain-emails so i must rely on fact checking sites and The American Conservative.
funny how those real conservatives are getting fed up with you fake Tea Party fools.
....Conservatives, frankly, have become purveyors of outrage instead of preachers for a cause. Instead of showing how increasing government harms people, how free markets help people, and how conservative policies benefit all Americans, we scream “Benghazi” and “Fast & Furious.”
We’re off key and off message. We’ve become professional victims dialed up to 10 on the outrage meter. Who the hell wants to listen to conservatives whining and moaning all the time about the outrage du jour? Seriously? Mitt Romney ran a campaign on just how bad things are, but he was rejected by a majority of Americans who felt like he really did not care about them and really had no plans to improve their lives.
Bitching about Benghazi doesn’t do that either.

you got that right. but let's not tell them. the cluster-Chuck has been a real hoot. watching self important people who know Hagel will be the SOD no matter what they have to say about it is priceless.

You failed to prove the mainstream media is NOT remaining silent in an effort to keep the masses uninformed on all those issues...
...and NOT participating in the promotion of one ideology rather than holding ALL those in power accountable on behalf of the people over whom they hold power...
...and why this is NOT fundamentally dangerous.
FOX is the media arm of the GOP.

so it's one against the other. and as i told someone the other day...people have come to expect lies from FOX but the MSM hasn't shown a constant pattern of doing the same(not saying they don't) so now folks feel that the MSM is a better bet for the real news.

just like it backfired on Mitt, it's done the same to FOX. they can tell it like it really is all day long and the majority will just ignore it. you can't tell lies all the time and then just expect folks to figure out when you're telling the truth.

if the ratings are any indication it really has backfired on FOX.

Pat Caddell....

Can the Republican Party Avoid the Fate of the Whigs?

If present trends continue, the Republicans will likely soon fall out of political viability; and the Grand Old Party will be the Grand Defunct Party. They are well on their way to becoming the 21st Century incarnation of the Whigs.

Let’s consider: At the national level, Republicans have lost four of the last six presidential elections; if one measures the popular vote, they have lost five of the last six. Indeed, over the last six elections, the GOP has averaged approximately 44.8 percent of the popular vote, whereas the Democrats have won 48.8 percent. And the disparity in the electoral college is even more telling: Republicans have won an average of 211 electoral votes over the last six elections, while Democrats have won 327.

These are trends that transcend any one candidate, and any one election. Meanwhile, the Establishment Republican party seems uninterested in learning anything about why they really lost; the goal of DC Republicans today is the generation of conveniently self-serving excuses.

Pat Caddell....

....Romney chose to speak forcefully on other issues, notably his true feelings about many of his fellow Americans--the 47%. Apparently he really does believe that he and his rich friends are overlording “masters of the universe,” engaged in a rich-man’s class warfare against the bottom half of the population.

The “47 percent" of the population that Romney derided as hopelessly dependent included, of course, retirees and war veterans--many of whom voted for him anyway. But of course, many didn’t.
