Barack Obama, our next President

Why does the CAB project the nobamakare will lead to a trillion dollar in deficits in the first 10 years?

Actually, the CBO did a July 2012 report showing that if Boehner (rhymes with toner) repealed the ACA it would add top the deficit.

The only was repeal would add to the deficit would be that the ACA is paid for with a little extra for deficit reduction.

That's a switch. So you're no longer a republican who fights tooth and nail for the banks, oil companies, defense contractors, Big Pharma, insurance cos et al and their fat cat CEOs like Rick SCott of Fl to continue the republican crony capitalist theft of US tax dollars? Or is it just the poor and middle class who don't get the benefit of the taxes they actually pay? And on't ive me that crap that the poor on't pay taxes. They pay more than many major corporations bobo.

You ever come up with an answer on how America grew such a middle class in the 50s and 60s when the tax rates were 75% and 95% on the top? I bet you like to tell everyone we can't tax the job creators. America had the lowest tax rates in history between 2003 and 2013, where were the jobs?

Neither do I. I have no problem with those who struggle daily,and at least try to do the right things in life, giving of themselves daily, treating others with kindness, generosity, thoughtfulness, and compassion.
It's the deceitful, the selfish, the manipulators and CONivers, the cruel and the inhumane and the puppet masters that play them, that are the most reprehensible. May they reap the miseries of their own doings for a lifetime.

Short memory?

You aid this: "Unfortunately what you and your article fail to acknowledge is that "FEDERAL INCOME TAX" is the tax collected and used to fund programs like welfare and SNAP. The very same programs that most who do not pay these taxes take advantage of. "

Last week, Vanity Fair published an adaptation of Zev Chafets’ biography of FOX News President Roger Ailes, in which Ailes described President Barack Obama as “lazy.”

Ailes may be correct in saying that Obama “never worked a day in his life.” Yet I do not believe that the President is lazy. I think Obama was spoiled rotten by his mother and her parents and that he has continued to be spoiled rotten by overly adoring liberals.

The real Obama clearly expressed himself in 2008 when he became exasperated by reporters after a news conference:“Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions.”

Sorry, Obama, for thinking it was anyone’s job to ask you questions.

Obama is the last person in the room to be sorry about anything.(There is plenty to be learned about Obama in Richard Minter’s recent book Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him1.)

According to White House records, the President was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Aug. 4, 1961. That makes him a member of Generation X, those born between 1960 and 1984.

What makes many of that generation so special is that they are born to baby boomers, who rejected raising their children the way generations of Americans had raised theirs. The baby boom went bust when they overindulged and spoiled their kids.

Raised by a single mother who was taking college classes, our 44th President had zero contact with his father. Instead, he found himself with his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, who was “finding herself” while traveling the world and continually going to college. When he was 10, Obama’s mother left him with his doting maternal grandparents.

Obama was not spoiled by money but by attention and adulation. One of only a handful of black kids at his high school in Hawaii, he was given extra merit for his intelligence. It seems clear that his grandparents, teachers and fellow students fawned over him, giving him an exaggerated sense of self.

Social scientists say that our basic personality is shaped at an early age. I have found that to be true. If we turn out to be kindhearted, industrious or insolent at 50, our behavior is cemented at a young age. In this regard Obama exhibits the personality of the peevish boy that he was while growing up.

On Jan. 27, New Republic published an interview with Obama.

One question asked was:

It seems as if you’re relying more on executive orders to get around these problems. You’ve done it for gun control, for immigration. Has your view on executive authority changed now that you’ve been president for four years?
Obama responded:

…[T]here are certain issues where a judicious use of executive power can move the argument forward or solve problems that are of immediate-enough import that we can’t afford not to do it. And today, just to take an example, the notion that we wouldn’t be collecting information on gun violence just to understand how it happens, why it happens, what might reduce it–that makes no sense.…

Clearly, Obama sees things his way: the way a 5-year-old sees a Tonka truck.

Stupid Duh A Vey-
My "partay" did not send millions anywhere.
Why do you insist on projecting your ignorance onto others?
I did not say everyone was an abuser or a slacker-but there are MANY these days. Far too many takers, with no honest intention of ever giving anything back, or trying to actually live OFF the systems.
Get a clue. I lived hard and poor a lot of years myself, so choke on that bullshit.
You people call the 47% slackers all the time. You included.

So were you lying then or now?

The Telegraph summed up Obama’s leadership qualities:

President Obama sees his re-election as a mandate to continue the very policies that will eventually bankrupt the country unless they are reversed, regardless of huge opposition on Capitol Hill. It chimes closely with the president’s second inaugural address…, which offered absolutely no olive branches to the nearly 61 million Americans who voted for his opponent in November.

It wouldn’t be hard to fill a book on Obama’s self-centeredness.

When Neil Armstrong died in August, the President posted a picture of HIMSELF looking up at the moon.

What should have been a President talking about the greatness of an American hero became ANOTHER self-aggrandizing moment by Obama.

Idiot Dave .. we all know that reading comprehension is not your strong suit but .... to speak in little words that you will understand.

The original poster was attempting to justify (like most of you liberals) that in paying taxes other than FEDERAL INCOME TAX that they are indeed paying taxes and contributing.

My point to the original poster was that they may pay other taxes but the benefits that these individuals take advantage of are funded by FEDERAL INCOME TAX, of which they pay none.

My point to you is that I don't believe that the programs should exist to begin with for them to take advantage of.

But they like you have little intellect/education to understand the concept or their negative impact on the country.

Get an education Dave, don't just claim one.

I Never was a republican, I LOATHE big pharma (they have RUINED America!) banks don't bother me-except when they loan dolluhs to those who really have no means of paying them back -just out of market greed, oil companies are just part of reality and merely supply Americas dependency (over) consumption of the product they supply, insurance companies would probably be able to offer lower rates if there was some major tort reforms to keep the GREEDY from taking advanatge...and I am OF the poorer working middle class, and have seen NOTHING for the YEARS of taxes paid, especially the past few years, except to see it all get handed over even more- to those who have NO earned entitlement to it whatsoever.
And sorry Jean, these days, that (often abused and lied about) EIC stuff...what a tax break! NOTHING paid, just more back into the pockets of those living off the givverment system.
And I've already stated repeatedly, I think corps need a little tax reformation themselves, cappped and curbed and limited loopholes-starting with "entertainment" and "travel expenses".(as in BULLCHIT-pay for it yourselves, lying arse SLACKERTICS)
