Only 9% of the uninsured were not covered in Massachusetts. Over 3 million people will be added to government-run health care in 2014.
There's quite a big difference. But you have to have some modicum of perspective.
Three million? You call that perspective?

Avoid numbers Carol__you can't be trusted with them!

Again, you're goddamned liar.

MA voters got to vote on Rmoneycare?? In your freakin' dreams, you
fool!!

""In 1994 Mitt Romney ran for the U.S. Senate. His opponent: Ted Kennedy. During that campaign Romney was critical of the liberalism of his opponent even coining s term "Kennedy Country" as means of describing the devastation Kennedy's liberal social policies had wrought on the poor neighborhoods in Massachusetts.

He lost that election but won his next attempt at state wide office as Governor in 2002. He ran on the pledge that he would not saddle the people of the state with socialist tax-and-spend or an expansion of liberal social policies.

However soon after he was elected Romney began the drumbeat for socialized medicine. Three years later he signed RomneyCare into law. The voters of Massachusetts did not vote for RomneyCare as by his own admission he did not plan his socialized medicine scheme until after the 2002 election. Romney foisted it upon the citizenry without warning and without any prodding from his Democratic rivals.

However, guess who was in the forefront of lobbying the state legislature to get Romney's bill passed? Yes, Ted Kennedy. The same Senator who pushed for socialized medicine for many decades. This became a Romney-Kennedy production.

Further Mitt Romney stood proudly with Kennedy while he signed RomneyCare into law. The Ted Kennedy love fest video from the 2006 bill signing ceremony for the health care law:

It's not Republicans who refuse to take any responsibility and refuse to look for new and better solutions from this point.
3rd emphatic assertion on one page. and in the only one that you actually tried to prove your point you gave us this....

Obama says heís ready to bargain in good faith, albeit from the standpoint that additional deficit reduction should include tax revenue as well as more spending cuts. Conservatives say that the president has failed to lead.

But Steve Bell, a budget analyst at the Bipartisan Policy Center who served for years as a Republican congressional staffer, says that these questions are not easy for Republicans, either. He says conservatives and liberals alike are aware of the risks of a voter backlash from tinkering with Social Security and health-care programs, which are the biggest driver of projected deficits in the long run.

"It's been this strange non-dialogue," he says.

More lies from the serial liars of Topix!!

Bush was President!! Yet you stupidly maintain he had nothing to do with the housing collapse that happende on his watch??

Who reappointed Alan Greenspan, whose low interest rate policies fed the housing bubble??

Who loudly called for an 'ownership society', where more Americans got to own their own part of the American Dream?? Whether they could afford it or not?

George W. Bush, that's who.



You're a big fan of YouTube, here's Bush's speech on home ownership.

You walked right into that one, nitwit!!

Thanks!!

Bush drive for home ownership fueled housing bubble

From his earliest days in office, Bush paired his belief that Americans do best when they own their own homes with his conviction that markets do best when left alone. Bush pushed hard to expand home ownership, especially among minority groups, an initiative that dovetailed with both his ambition to expand Republican appeal and the business interests of some of his biggest donors. But his housing policies and hands-off approach to regulation encouraged lax lending standards.

Bush did foresee the danger posed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored mortgage finance giants. The president spent years pushing a recalcitrant Congress to toughen regulation of the companies, but was unwilling to compromise when his former Treasury secretary wanted to cut a deal. And the regulator Bush chose to oversee them - an old school buddy - pronounced the companies sound even as they headed toward insolvency.

As early as 2006, top advisers to Bush dismissed warnings from people inside and outside the White House that housing prices were inflated and that a foreclosure crisis was looming. And when the economy deteriorated, Bush and his team misdiagnosed the reasons and scope of the downturn. As recently as February, for example, Bush was still calling it a "rough patch."

The result was a series of piecemeal policy prescriptions that lagged behind the escalating crisis.

"There is no question we did not recognize the severity of the problems," said Al Hubbard, Bush's former chief economic adviser, who left the White House in December 2007. "Had we, we would have attacked them."

Looking back, Keith Hennessey, Bush's current chief economic adviser, said he and his colleagues had done the best they could "with the information we had at the time." But Hennessey did say he regretted that the administration had not paid more heed to the dangers of easy lending practices.

And both Paulson and his predecessor, John Snow, say the housing push went too far.

"The Bush administration took a lot of pride that home ownership had reached historic highs," Snow said during an interview. "But what we forgot in the process was that it has to be done in the context of people being able to afford their house. We now realize there was a high cost."

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/21/business/wo...

"was unwilling to compromise when his former Treasury secretary wanted to cut a deal" on the Oxley/Frank Bill. why?

The Administration strongly believes that the housing GSEs should be focused on their core housing mission, particularly with respect to low-income Americans and first-time homebuyers. Instead, provisions of H.R. 1461 that expand mortgage purchasing authority would lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers.

Did you ever attend school?? Seriously.

It would appear not, which is why you stick to short messages, which are filled with spelling errors, mangled syntax, and ignorance.

You're an uneducated wingnut, and all you offer is stupid commentary, without making sense.

Here's an example;

"you canít confuse a Liberal there Born Confuse!!"

I rest my case. You're an uneducated dimwit who is still seething because a black man is our President!!

Deal with it, loser!!

Americans were given no choice?
Sooo, the 2012 elections never happened.
You know, when Romney and GOP senate candidates opposing Obamacare all lost?
Interestingly, every GOP Governor opposed to Obamacare that is up for re election has suddenly changed their tune and are implementing the Medicaid expansion in their states.
You are once again living in an alternate reality.

Rush: I've read Sperling's e-mail. That's the e-mail that contains the "you'll regret this." And the way I read it, Sperling is telling Woodward you're gonna regret this 'cause you're wrong. You're gonna regret it as a journalist.

Why didn't Hairball Reid, the Democreep who said Obama was a light skinned Negro and his Democrats in the Senate not create a bill to address the sequestor?

Now we all have to wait for the Earth to explode after we lose th 170 million jobs Pewlosi & Maxine Waters warned us about. These airhead, lying Democreeps were only off on the job count number by 169,830,000.
