Almost half of all female-headed families with children under 18 have incomes below the poverty line. This is almost five times the poverty rate of two-parent families with children.

This new form of poverty is not caused directly by racial discrimination or by structural deficiencies in the economy, but, rather, by a major and troubling change in the behavior of American parents--the creation of single-parent households.

Not to mention the rampant abuses in the system because of gross lack of oversight.

It's just the double standard of which liberals have a monopoly.

How can you be against the death penalty and condone the killing of the unborn?

Doesn't the death penalty make more sense for hardened criminals than the most vulnerable and innocent?

Obama still calls that act of terror "workplace violence".

Surely, you can see something is very wrong with this.

When even a key architect of Obamacare says the law’s implementation will resemble a “train wreck,” it is clear that its biggest remaining supporters need to finally level with the American people about what’s in store — starting with President Barack Obama.

The president must step into the breach and explain to the public that skyrocketing premiums and a raft of new taxes, penalties and fees are coming their way.

We should start preparing for the "train wreck":

I'll give it to you in increments.

Fact 1: For many families and individuals, especially younger Americans, the law will lead to increased health insurance premiums. These have already gone up $2,370 per family since Obama took office, not down by $2,500 as he promised. And this is before most of Obamacare’s most costly mandates have even taken effect.

Preparing for the "train wreck" (continued)...

Fact 2: For many business owners, Obamacare will mean a crushing tower of red tape, demonstrated by the nearly 20,000 pages of regulations already issued. Employers have already planned layoffs due to uncertainty surrounding this law, according to the Federal Reserve. Obamacare could result in up to 800,000 fewer jobs, according to some estimates.

No one forces anyone to have one. It's a personal choice. Mixing murder with a legal medical procedure is incendiary and self serving.

Any feelings about those killed in Waco ? This was likely due to irresponsibility by the ownes; whose greed for profit superceded worker safety

Fact 3: For many part-time workers, the law means less take-home pay as employers reduce hours to comply with the law’s mandates. Colleges in Ohio and Pennsylvania are reportedly limiting the number of classes adjunct professors can teach; Virginia state agencies are reducing part-time employee hours to no more than 29, and a national soft-pretzel chain has begun moving to a “kiosk” store model that will allow it to cut down on full-time employees.

Even a union reversed its position on Obamacare and called for repeal partially because it could “cause a loss of work.”
