The medical loss ratio is a trivial issue, a little red meat for fools like you.
And it hurts insurance company shareholders.
You are not an Insurance company. The medical loss ratio WAS a big thing to them and they drove a hard bargain on Obama to accept the individual mandate before they'd agree to the ACA.

Well, that's good. Unfortunately, for the Iraqis, they're being left to fend for themselves prematurely.

It's like someone else said:

"Whether or not you agree with the war, the American servicemen worked tirelessly and fought valiantly to rout out the terrorists and forge good relations with the people in the areas they secured. The surge worked and our soldiers were winning the peace.
President Obama pulled the US troops out of Iraq to keep a promise that he'd made to his liberal base. It was a decision that many predict will come back to bite us. This administration pulled out just before the job was finished."

Faleh Abdul-Jabbar, the director of the Baghdad-based Iraq Institute for Strategic Studies, told the BBC the US withdrawal would be "counter-productive for so many reasons," pointing to Iraq's political vacuum and its "weak army and reviving insurgency".

"Withdrawal at this point would send the wrong signals to the political class, saying that the US is withdrawing no matter what. And second, it would send the wrong signal also to the insurgency - dormant or active - that we are withdrawing no matter what, and they would see it as a retreat."

But guess that's just okey-dokey with you being part of Obama's liberal base.

Because Obama always gets his way - even if it's the wrong way.

yeah right, tell us another one
People are now looking to retire outside of the United States, I started looking while I was in my 30's. Where my house is has mass amounts of retirees from America. Their money goes much further, it is a Christian nation, thus making it safer. The cost of living and Taxes are very low and the life style is slow, meaning stress free. It is not conducive to many Americans to retire in the United States anymore. Even Union people from Illinois have set up shop in my neighborhood. I watched Detoitopia last night, I suggest you watch what happened to the liberal Utopia New Deal there, and why it happened.

Anyone who believes in "death panels" is beyond comprehending even basic facts. You are the type of person Voltaire was referring to when he said "Common sense is not so common.”
I like 'death panels' when they're put to good use as a deterrent on Big Banks illegal activity that nearly killed our entire economy.

Right, the Honda Cr-V is considered a truck-SUV.

Whatever in total by brand retail deliveries Ford ranks #3 in CA, GM #4 and Nissan #5.

The F-150 is the nations top selling vehicle.

Point is that you were wrong__to be fair I was wrong re:Chrysler.

It takes a special kind of asshole to read what I just posted&, comeback with a response like that. Who the hell is shopping in all the AK-47s & other foreign guns that wind up in the ghettos? Yea that's right, you buttholes! The same as Reagan was doing in operation contraband. Arming both sides so eventually kill themselves off. You can't tell me nothing! I've been in both sides of the game so, my ideological philosophy is more accurate than a person who's only seen 1 side & therefore holds a blind bias. Evidenced by your ignorant response. When you refuse to educate yourself, ignorant is no different than dumb!

Poor management for 20-30 odd years will do that. They, especially GM thought they were invincible, that they owned the market. They didn't change with the times.

Nobody has been taxed yet and nobody has been forced to buy insurance against their will.
And they never will be. People who already have insurance won't pay any tax at all.They already pay a tax to their insurance provider for the service. The ACA only involves the smaller minority who chose not to buy insurance--those people won't get a free ride anymore --they 'll have to contribute to the higher costs of 30 million more people being allowed to buy insurance who were previously denied that right.(a right the rest of us take for granted)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Bush really knew how to do it, right?? That's why he signed a surrender document. The first time in history that America surrendered to a foe.
Bush started two wars, failed miserably in both.
He surrendered to the Iraqi's, never caught OBL, got 5,000 American Military killed in his stupid wars,and he accomplished nothing.
Obama, being Bush Lite, continued the wars for far too long.
Time to bring our troops home from Bush's failures.
Your post deserves a repeat.

P.S. I find using the word 'butt holes' to be very uncouth--do you know what they means 'have not'(a brain)?
More retarded talk from a dumb wiseass! Which is it, does Obama want to disarm America as a measure of dictatorship or, is his goal to allow Mexican drug cartels to run guns & drugs freely back & forth across the border? Please do reiterate, this ought to be amusing!

Wal-Mart pleads guilty to dumping hazardous waste

SAN FRANCISCO (AP)— Wal-Mart Stores Inc. pleaded guilty on Tuesday to charges the company dumped hazardous waste in California.

Wal-Mart entered the plea in federal court in San Francisco to misdemeanor counts of negligently dumping pollutants from Walmart stores into sanitation drains across California, a company spokeswoman said.

As part of the plea, the company will pay $81 million, which will also cover charges in Missouri.

In 2010, the company agreed to pay $27.6 million to settle similar allegations made by California authorities that led to changes in the retailer's practices nationwide. Wal-Mart was accused of improperly disposing pesticide, fertilizer and paint.

You're a poor student of politics or history so how you ever became a teacher must have been through bribes or favoritism by the school board. You missed the essential point that the Bush43 Surge in Iraq was a terrible failure because, as Joe Biden pointed out at the time, it never made any preparations for restoring a unified Iraqi government under on Constitution. Bush43 had wasted so much time on the surge that he had little time in office left to do anything but sign an agreement to 'cut &run' before his political party got booted out of power in the 2008 U S elections.
