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 ... Full Story

I also know what a budget proposal is__it's a proposal.

Baaaawwwaaahhhhhh!!!!!

What a flocking liar.

I personally know three doctors and all three say Obamacare is bad for the public and the economy.

Just a heads up...snake oil really doesn't cure anything. It's an intoxicant that makes you feel better until it wears off again.

I'd lay off the stuff if I were you. You're buying into the hype.

I'm telling you this because I care. Real medicine is bitter but it really does make you feel better.

Now open up and swallow...

"During Obama’s term, between 2009 to 2012, premiums have climbed $2,370 for the average family with an employer-provided plan – a rate faster than the during the previous four years under President George W. Bush," according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

...and give the medicine time to work.

Some who knew him at the college said he seemed like a nice kid but was strange, sometimes carrying stuffed animals.
He was a big guy who used both a scalpel and an exacto-knife on his victims.
He would have easily passed a background check at a gun store or show but apparently had know interest in shooting. With two hearing aids that makes sense.
Oh my word. His mamma and pappy should have kept that freak locked in the basement.

The administration is proposing to extend a freeze on the income brackets at which seniors are liable for the higher premiums until 1 in 4 retirees has to pay. It wouldn't be the top 5 percent anymore, but the top 25 percent.
"Over time, the higher premiums will affect people who by today's standards are considered middle-income," explained Tricia Neuman, vice president for Medicare policy at the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. "At some point, it raises questions about whether Medicare premiums will continue to be affordable."

It's much more astonishing to me that the left is so astonished Obamacare is a disaster.
It will be this president's legacy.
At $15.00 an hour, I highly doubt you are in that top 25%

I’m sure Obama told the Wheeler family prior to her speech he’s ‘Fired Up’ and probably said ‘If I had a son, he'd look like Ben'
Since MS Wheeler put herself into the Political arena I hope a journalist will simple ask the question ‘ MS Wheeler ‘ What part of this Gun Control Legislation that you support would have prevented Sandy Hook and would have prevented your son Death!”

"Our fractured and fragmented health-care system will become even more so as Americans are further divided by income, employment status, and the type of insurance they choose in the exchanges. Despite the modest tax penalties, many will choose to remain uninsured, shifting the cost of care they may need to everybody else."
~Dr. Philip Caper

(Dr. Philip Caper of Brooklin is a founding board member of Maine AllCare, a nonpartisan, nonprofit group committed to making health care in Maine universal, accessible and affordable for all.)

http://www.pnhp.org/news/2012/november/obamac...

Dr. Caper's solution? Simplify health care.

But how could Obama's big government control us if he simplified it?

I imagine minds are going to change when they hear this message enough.

Right on cue!! Classic! I just wish you had the guts to go stand before your black church friends and spew this rewriting of history. Are all of you a bunch of lying fools? It's amazing.

One more time doll, until recently I was paying 100% of the cost for mine and my wife's private health insurance. The price of our premiums increased about $350 over the course of Obama's first term, from about $12,500 per year to about 12,850 per year. I've posted those numbers before and once again Carol I'm not hearing these stories from real people unless they've had to change insurers.

What was the increase under Bush in the Kaiser study?

You must have forgotten my income is supplemental to our family income.

However, we are definitly in the middle class. Since we had to pay back the government in taxes, even if it was a modest amount, I imagine our taxes will be one of the first to go up when Obamacare hits the fan and the rest of us.

On January 1, everyone brought home less in their paychecks.

What happened, Lily? Please tell me Obama didn't lie to us about that too?

Simplify Health Care is the good Doctors message__his opinion piece was about the effect of health care practices on the health insurance market and how the insurers are giving us the high hard one with each and every opportunity.

Caper has penned several opinion pieces for the Bangor Daily News
since 2011 on the topic.

CBS) HOUSTON - Dylan Quick, the 20-year-old accused of stabbing 14 fellow students at the Lone Star College Cy-Fair campus Tuesday, allegedly told investigators he had been fantasizing about cannibalism, and about cutting off people's faces and wearing them as masks,

"Mr. Quick admitted he was the lone stabber at Lone Star College," the warrant states, according to KHOU. "Mr. Quick stated that last week he researched the internet about mass stabbings on his personal computer."

According to the station, authorities seized a laptop from the home as well as a digital camera. They also reportedly recovered a Hannibal Lecter mask and the books "Hit List" and "Hitman," which deal with serial killings.

"The Book of Five Rings," a martial arts text on sword fighting, was also reportedly seized.

The warrant stated that Quick "sharpened various instruments such as a hairbrush and pencils to use as weapons.

He allegedly confessed that he used an X-acto knife and a scalpel in the campus stabbing spree, according to the warrant.

ABC News - 2011 - Health insurance premiums shot up 9 percent this year, nearly three times the rate of inflation and the most since 2005, a new study shows.

That was 2 years ago. Are you sure it's getting better now? Could you possibly be the exception?

For future reference, however, I prefer "baby doll" as a term of endearment. "Doll" makes you sound more like a gangster.

There's already a movement among black churches to turn against Obama's social policies. They're doing it all by themselves.

Why would anyone need "guts" to tell the truth?

A lot of them are figuring it out because they're telling each other. Black conservatives talk about the "herd mentality" more than white conservatives.

Is that what you were referring to?

Who raised insurance premiums and why? Take a wild guess.

Did President Obama raise them?

Can he lower them?
