carol, honey, you said you weren't leaving. Then you said you were leaving. You said you "gave up." Then you said you would never give up. It's sort of like your politics: you say one thing... then you do another. Whore. You'd do anything for money wouldn't you dear? You're a republican: you'll do absolutely anything for spare change - pun intended. Slut.

You conservatives are fond of touting capitalism in its pure laissez-faire form.

As I recall, there was a very dark side to it. For example 12-hour a day, six-days-a-week child labor for pennies an hour. Employers had no responsibility for unsafe conditions in the workplace. If a worker lost a hand to an electric saw, he had no recourse. And was typically fired and replaced.

Drugs were unregulated. There were no health standards for canned goods, meat and poultry.

These issues were not addressed until enough progressive-minded politicians were elected to office and passed laws ending such conditions.

I find it amazing you Republicans can even show your faces after what your party has done.

Try to remember when Clinton left office we had a balanced federal budget.

By the time Bush left, the annual deficit went from zero to over one trillion per year.

He outed a CIA agent in retaliation for her husband writing a critical editorial in the NY Times.

He lied the country into an unnecessary war that cost the lives of 4,0000 Americans and ran up enormous debt, to the profit of the military industries.

And he left office with the economy in shambles.

All this "commie" stuff you're throwing at Obama is a smoke screen to divert attention from the failure of the Bush years.

I remember the exact same accusations were leveled at Clinton.

Grave Digger, let me see if I've got this right.

You would have us believe that when Bush left office, the economy was in great shape, we had no debt, and no costly wars to finish.

Correct?

Obama, like you, is a pathological liar.
THERE ARE NO SPENDING CUTS PLANNED.
Obama is lying to you... again.
The only people in Congress pushing for less government spending are TEA Party. Every other Representative and Senator in Congress is negotiating how much more the government should grow.
We cannot pay for the government of the size it is now. What kind of an idiot discusses making the government even bigger?
Answer: Obama and Democrats.
Your Tea Party is a bunch of fools shilling for fascist plutocrats who wouldn't bother to urinate on you if you were on fire. They want less government for the same reason criminals want fewer cops on the street, so that they can rape and pillage our resources and environment to their hearts will and privatize our prisons, schools and highways not for the public good but to line their own pockets.

There are two ways to conquer & enslave a nation.
One is by the sword. The other is by debt."
~ John Adams, 1826

The Quote of the Decade:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
~ Barack H. Obama

The federal government food stamp program, part of the U.S. Dept. or Agriculture, is pleased to currently be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever in our nation's Obama history...

Meanwhile, the U.S. National Park Service, also part of the U.S. Dept of Agriculture, asks us "Please do not feed the animals" as the animals may become dependent on handouts and not learn to take care of themselves. Yes liberals are that stupid.

Ronald Reagan and Brady were shot by a deranged democrat, you idiot.

The DNA of the democratic party is inbred with hate and racism. Mass killings by Democrats or Chicago ghetto style killings from the "culture of violence" are not by angry old white men clinging to their guns and religion. The inner city ghettos and projects of modern America, reservations and preserves are the breeding ground 'Blue Magnets' of your hate-filled liberalism, racism, poverty, abortion, and killing fields for blacks.

Democrat and guns are a recipe for Mental illness and disaster.

Yes because all those useless admin positions in government duplicated over several times are so impeding the Republicans from their agenda. You are a fool

The liberals get dumber everyday with their attempts to blame the Republicans for the mismanagement and utter lack of leadership on the left.

Medicaid and Obamacare

Pragmatism in Florida

IN THE hierarchy of Obamacare haters, Rick Scott, the Republican governor of Florida, ranked near the top. In 2009 the former hospital executive bankrolled ads warning of government-run health care, with horror stories from Canada and Britain. In 2010 Mr Scott campaigned with the promise to scuttle the health law. Florida led states’ efforts to challenge Obamacare in court. When the Supreme Court upheld the law in June, Mr Scott declared,“This is just another burden the federal government has put on American families and small businesses.”

Though conservatives despaired over the ruling, some took comfort in the fact that it gave states the option of rejecting a major part of the law: the expansion of Medicaid, which funds health care for the poor. Given the choice, Mr Scott declared that Florida would opt out of the Medicaid expansion. He even wrote a column titled, "More Medicaid? No Thanks."

So Mr Scott's announcement on February 20th that he would, after all, expand Medicaid is, to say the least, a blow to conservatives.“He has squandered his credibility as an opponent of Obamacare”, wrote Cato’s Michael Cannon, who served on Mr Scott’s gubernatorial transition team. The move is “a huge threat to Florida's financial future”, declared Americans for Prosperity. "Terribly disappointed" is how Erick Erickson summed up his reaction. Conservatives are displeased, but they should not be surprised.

The maths are too obvious to ignore. Mr Scott will expand Medicaid for only three years (he says), when the federal government will cover the full bill. So in 2016, for example, Washington will pump an extra $6.7 billion into Florida’s Medicaid program, 49% more than would've been spent had Florida not expanded the program, while the state's tab will increase by less than 1%.

Florida has 1.3m uninsured adults who will be newly eligible for Medicaid, according to the Urban Institute. Without an expansion, 995,000 would be without insurance, eligible for neither Medicaid nor the subsidies to buy insurance on a federal exchange.(Mr Scott has drawn the line at creating his own health exchange.)“While the federal government is committed to paying 100% of the cost of new people in Medicaid,” Mr Scott explained,“I cannot, in good conscience, deny the uninsured access to care.”

http://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyiname...

The politics are obvious, too. Barack Obama won Florida in November, and Mr Scott is up for re-election next year. His tea-party inspired governing has so far led to dismal approval ratings, so he has begun to reverse course in some areas.
