Barack Obama, our next President

Henry Chao, a CMS official who’s overseeing the technology for the exchange launch of ObamaCare, when pressed about the format for the health care policies he will submit to HHS for approval so the plans can be marketed in the exchanges said,
“The time for debating about the size of text on the screen or the color or is it a world-class user experience, that’s what we used to talk about two years ago,” he said.“Let’s just make sure it’s not a third-world experience.”

Yes, let's hope it's not that...a third-world experience.

Maybe you just don't understand the business of investment firms.
Bain Capital invested in or acquired hundreds of companies including AMC Entertainment, Aspen Education Group, Brookstone, Burger King, Burlington Coat Factory, Clear Channel Communications, Domino's Pizza, DoubleClick, Dunkin' Donuts, D&M Holdings, Guitar Center, Hospital Corporation of America, Sealy, The Sports Authority, Staples, Toys "R" Us, Warner Music Group and The Weather Channel.
Most of the firm's profits were made from a small number of deals with the overall success and failure rate being about even.
Out of 68 deals Bain Capital made one year, the firm lost money or broke even on 33 of them.
Out of 77 deals, 17 went bankrupt or out of business; in 6 cases, the firm lost all its investment; and 10 were very successful and represent 70% of the total profits.
In other words, they invest their own money and either win or lose based on the success or failure of the company they invest in.
Sometimes they earn a profit even if a company isn't successful.
That's business.
Hang it up, Bettie Lou. Progressive Ultra Left Wing Socialist Liberal Democrats will never understand capitalism.

Socialism and State Theft are at the core of their philosophy. Always will be.

Reagan's entire presidency was corrupt dealings, Bush sr just proved to be incompetent, & Bush Jr was as corrupt as Reagan, even more so! The minute someone's ideology from far across the planet differs from republicans, the first thought is war. How many times will republican presidents pull the same back stabbing tactics on different countries before we're at war with the world again? This time literally the whole world!

Liberals let loose inside of any profession from Teaching to Sociology to Psychiatry: if you can't understand something enough to define it, simply codify it, throw in some fuzzy nomenclature with bewildering terminology created from Latin and Greek language and then get some politicians to use your work as a 'professional' source and you've got it made; a tool to flummox the unwashed masses.

And feed generations of children tons of unnecessary pharmaceuticals.

Your flogging a dead horse, Fox were hoping the Boston bombers were a foreign force so they could campaign another invasion somewhere. Especially had they been Iranian, however when that fell flat on its face amidst a bunch of misinformation they jumped back on the Benghazi band wagon again. All you do every day is post Fox news talking points. Why not try and get an idea of your own.
The bombers were foreigners and Obama is busy covering up the conspiracy to protect radical Islam in the US.

One of the reasons I love being on topix is I learn so much.
Stericycle, a massive medical waste disposal service company, received a $75 million investment from Bain Capital in 1999 and soon became an industry leader. Today, it has more than 485,000 customers worldwide. Its clients include hospitals, blood banks, and pharmaceutical manufacturers. But it has also helped dispose of medical waste from Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics.
There is no data showing that either Romney or other officials at Bain knew of Stericycle's work with Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics before the investment.
Hospitals, blood banks and pharmaceutical manufacturers are probably very grateful Bain provided this service.
But thanks for giving more ammo to use against your arguments since apparently you will believe anything.
Lefties prefer the Gosnell approach of flushing dead babies down the sewer, to avoid any profits for corporate America.

The problem is that the actual medical care will definitely be a third-world experience with the government removing all financial incentives.

My political senses have become jaded. My capacity for surprise at observing Liberal stupidity has been dulled to a point where I no longer drop my jaw to the floor when hearing the Magic Negro or Nancy Palooslely utter some inane, vacuous waste of breath.

There is nothing new beneath the Sun. sigh....

Could I at least be allowed to see a Jackass throw a Democrat rider into the Burr Bush? Or a Democrat throwing a Jackass riding them? I need some humorous distraction from the dirge of Socialist pap oozing from Liberal Media.

Wouldn't it be cute to hear the Laurel & Hardy Theme Song playing during a Boy Messiah Press Conference and culminating with Hardy's famous line "Look at the fine mess you've gotten us into now!"??

Do you guys understand laws are only passes if the senate or house approves it right? The president can only go to war so its easy to fly under the radar and not look so bad. Bush jr never got that memo. Obama is doing great for what hes able to do. The house somehow thinks that people shouldnt have to wait more than 48 hrs to pick up a gun after you paid for it but then are the same idiots they jump on tv and make a heartless speech about this and that when they are the one to that can make a difference. They say its ok for companies to shoot all types of hgh up in manipulated organs(fake chickens) and serve to us like this good for us. You got a 4'11 asian couple looking up at there 7'0 kids like wtf. Nothing we do as a country doesn't make sense and we wonder why were underachieving as a whole. America runs off the race to the bottom whatever is the cheapest has to be the best approach and the corporations that are actually making money aren't putting it back in our economy. On top of all that you have idiots like half these people on topix that are so privately racist! If you get out of your comfort zone and travel the world you will see this is basically the only country like that. Note to racist white america you are definitely a global minority and that respect!

Lumping those who manipulate the system with the 47% of blind loyalists who actuallly WEREN'T going to vote for him was definitely an unfortunate misstatement on his part. He owned up to it and clarified it almost immediately.
He never made outdated comments about women. Just the opposite. He went out of his way to hire more women in his cabinet as Governor of Massachusetts than his predecessors.
He never stood behind Murdock and Akin. Just the opposite. He condemned their oversimplified statements and distanced himself from them.
He revealed exactly what was required of him by law with regard to his tax returns.
You get no points for that post.
No Carol, Romney didn't go out of his way to hire women. His "binders full of women" statement was just one of many lies he told during the campaign. The "binder" of women's résumés was prepared before the election by the Massachusetts Government Appointments Project, a coalition of nonpartisan women's groups. When Romney won, the women -- not in binders -- gave him the résumés.
A study by the University of Massachusetts and the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy shows that the percentage of women in senior positions during his tenure actually declined. It went from 30% when Romney took office to 27% when he left and up to more than 33% after the new governor took over.
