You really should consider what's in the stories you're linking Carol, or try to.
Your understanding of ObamaCare is pitiful babe__as we speak policy holders are receiving rebates and health care insurers and health care providers are partnering in cost saving measures that are thirty years overdue. Blue Cross Blue Shield is partnering with Trinity Health in Michigan and other hospital groups elsewhere.
This is the only understanding I need.

Congressional leaders are trying to find a way to be exempt from the insurance exchanges mandated in Obama’s health care overhaul.

Top lawmakers including Harry Reid face potential political fallout from giving exemption status to 535 lawmakers and thousands of their aides.

Several proposals have been submitted to the Office of Personnel Management. One proposal exempts lawmakers and aides; the other exempts aides alone.

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/obamaca...

When Democrats want to be exempt from Obamacare, there's a big problem for the rest of us.

<quoted text> carol, are you aware that higher taxes specially on the wealthy cut down the deficit? Or you're just ignoring the cards on the table and shooting off blanks? It's time to stop big corporation greed that only affects the middle class and the poor, notice most big corporations support republican candidates who of course support capitalism, if we had a republican president now, the gas price would have been well over 5 dlls. A gallon, sorry carol, i'll stick to what i think is right and read my my poster i.d.
Big corporations like those of Bill Gates and Warren Buffet? Do you know anything that isn't total crap ?

Yeah, every now and then some drags this article out like it's some kind of gem but in reality it's a piece of dreck. 50% of subprime loans were made by institutions that weren't subject to federal regulation or oversight and another 30% were made by those not subject to routine examination or supervision.

At President Clinton’s direction, no fewer than 10 federal agencies issued a chilling ultimatum to banks and mortgage lenders to ease credit for lower-income minorities or face investigations for lending discrimination and suffer the related adverse publicity. They also were threatened with denial of access to the all-important secondary mortgage market and stiff fines, along with other penalties.
The threat was codified in a 20-page “Policy Statement on Discrimination in Lending” and entered into the Federal Register on April 15, 1994, by the Interagency Task Force on Fair Lending. Clinton set up the little-known body to coordinate an unprecedented crackdown on alleged bank redlining.
The edict — completely overlooked by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the mainstream media — was signed by then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, Attorney General Janet Reno, Comptroller of the Currency Eugene Ludwig and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, along with the heads of six other financial regulatory agencies.

The More Illegals That Go On Food Stamps The More Money JP Morgan Makes

Recently uncovered documents prove that the Obama has been working with the Mexican government to increase the number of illegal aliens on food stamps, and when more illegal aliens go on food stamps JP Morgan makes more money. As you will read, JP Morgan has made at least 560 million dollars processing Electronic Benefits Transfer cards.

If the current system wasn't a failure, the extension of the Bush tax cuts, Obama raising taxes on folks making over $400,000 & families over $450,000, along with the sequester should've have live to the economy but, it didn't. Capitalism is a system designed to keep majority circulating amongst the top, & the middle class (poor) are the batteries that gives the machine the juice to operate, so in essence, the top use money & access to money to drain the life & blood out of the middle class (poor). Exactly how does it benefit America for billionaires like Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey to make more money in a year then the average American will make in 2 lifetimes? Exactly, it doesn't & it benefits America even less when their type pays little to no taxes in their income. The govt at this point is forced to continue infusing capitol into the economy to money made by the rich & stashed in banks like can goods in a cupboard. The idea of you been make it if you try is smoke & mirrors, & nothing more than inspiration for the blind eye & dead mind to give their flesh blood & live to a evil corrupt system whom really doesn't give a shit about you!
You really have no idea what you are talking about and you have no idea how our system works. I don't claim it's perfect, but it's the best available.

I don't care one bit what unemployed layabouts, loafers and welfare receivers think or want, they and their opinions are worthless, they add nothing to our system.
Nothing but yourself is stopping you from doing well in America.

Bush actually got the economy up and running again after 9/11 within a year and a half.

The left tends to convienently lose track of the timeline and those involved leading up to the housing market collapse too.

Obama inherited a Democrat as much, if not more, as a Republican mess. Democrats had complete control of Congress two years prior to the collapse and for two years afterwards.

There Leadass Lou, I fixed it for you.
Bush added over 5 trillion to the national debt. Add up those budget deficits. Why don't they add up to the national debt increase???? Is it because Bush ran his wars off budget? Obama does not.
Doorknob, let's see the totals of Bush's deficits with the wars from a reputable source, otherwise stfu.

Even with the wars, voted for by demorats, they wouldn't be a trillion dollars plus.

You're lying, again.

And the failure and liar Oblamer is president, not Bush.

1) Denying loans based on race is illegal. They lost in court.
2) The CRA sais banks, in their communities, had to make more of an effort to help people get mortgages. They had to lower the down payment or the interest rate but mortgage buyers STILL HAD TO SHOW THEY COULD MAKE THOSE PAYMENTS.
So, you believe that banks should be racist. Interesting.
Liar, yur willful ignorance is very annoying, stop kissing Oblamers ass.

Funny how you right whiers no longer agree with any of those issues.
Yet here you are, praising Bush.
I can only assume its because you are just ignorant of the facts.
