Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text>"We won’t really know how Obamacare works until it has been in operation for a while; but we do know that essentially the same system has been running in Massachusetts since 2006, and is doing pretty well. The question, then, is whether other states that don’t have MA’s initial advantages — especially an already low uninsurance rate and an already operating system of community rating — can make this thing work. The big fear has been of sharply rising premiums as insurers are required to cover people with preexisting conditions. And the biggest test case was always going to be California.

Well, the preliminary numbers for CA are in — and they’re looking very good, with costs coming in below expectations. At this point, it looks as if this thing is indeed going to work." Check this out: http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/05/24/o...
California? They are already in bankruptcy!

See, you are easy to fool by fake numbers!

Let me ask you a questions: if Obamacare is so great, why are more and more unions and business asking for Obamacare waivers, why?

http://conservativewatchnews.com/2012/11/16/h...

How’s That Obamacare Waiver Workin’ Out for Ya?

Exactly two years ago this week, the Obama administration announced it had issued more than 100 waivers en masse to a select group of companies, unions and other health insurance providers seeking relief from the onerous federal health care law. The Obamacare waiver winner’s club now totals 2,000. Where are they now?

Answer: In the same miserable boat as every other unlucky business struggling with the crushing costs and burdens of the mandate.

Among the first and most prominent recipients of the Obamacare waivers for favors were large restaurant chains that provide low-wage, seasonal and part-time workers with low-cost health insurance plans called “mini-med” plans. An estimated 1.7 million workers benefit from such plans. Obamacare forced companies carrying such coverage to raise their minimum limits on coverage to no less than $750,000 annually. Another Obamacare provision forces all employers to spend at least 80 percent to 85 percent of their premium revenue on medical care.

The social justice Democrats’ goal was to dictate insurance provider spending not just on coverage amounts, but also on executive salaries, marketing and other costs. The regulation punished companies with mini-med plans whose high administrative costs were due to frequent worker turnover and relatively low spending on claims — not “greed.” Complying with the provision would have meant tens of thousands of low-income workers would lose their benefits altogether.

Far too many young people are spending far too much money and incurring far too much debt to obtain worthless college degrees from third-rate colleges.
Community colleges are a prime example, granting absolutely worthless degrees.
We have created a society where most waitresses have college degrees, because they have no skills and cannot find a job that requires their "education."
The idea that a college degree is essential is absurd, when skilled trades earn far more than many college graduates.
OOOOOHHHHHHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMM lol

If Hillary is still entertaining the idea of running for president now, she is proving herself a glutton for punishment.
She will be run over by that one clip, "what difference does it make???" (that four Americans died under her watch), and that clip will back up and run over her again, back up and run over her again and again and again.
It will be the only ad necessary.
Other than the proof she lied under oath.
Not only Hillary's words, but the clip shows her to be a sick, old, hysterical woman...not to be trusted with national security.

If the congress passes and the president signs a bill that takes action to correct court concerns about a law and the new bill stands they have in effect over turned the court.

It's interesting how cons are so focused on knocking off the next democratic challenger, but are so lost when it comes to their own candidate.

So much fear, apprehension and worry for something that's 3 years away.

A bold-faced lie.
Yes, you did lie. "The IRS late Wednesday released the names of 176 applications it had approved through May 9 in its controversial specialized review process. That process is at the heart of the controversy since specialists were flagging applications that had tea party, patriot and other politically charged conservative names.

The 176 approved applications include dozens of tea party groups, as well as others with innocuous names such as Charlotte Matters, Kentucky 912 Project and Miami-Dade Taxpayers Alliance. Some appear overtly political, such as the Coalition for a Conservative Majority, both the Denver and Colorado Springs chapters, and Progressives United Inc."...There are two IRS scandals. The other is the IRS allowing big shadowy forces to meddle in elections anonymously through front groups that file false statements with the IRS, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., said on the Senate floor Wednesday.

The investigative website ProPublica last year spotlighted the growing role of these shadowy groups and their dark money on campaign finance, noting that as the 2012 election approached they had outspent traditional political action committees in the purchase of campaign ads.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., scheduled a hearing for next week and intends to look beyond the narrower question of tea party targeting by the IRS.

There is another important question that needs to be asked: Is there a fault in the tax code that may have contributed to the IRS taking such unacceptable steps? Do we need a better definition of what organizations qualify for tax exemptions? Baucus asked."Check this out: http://congress.org/2013/05/17/in-irs-scandal...

I'm beginning to think you're being lazy is on purpose just to make me have to work to prove you wrong.
My post was to the poster who said Berger stuffed documents down his pants, which was a bullsht media creation.

Berger took "copies" of classified original documents from the National Archives in a leather tote and some notes he had made in his pants or coat pocket.

He was fined $50K and community service.

BS. Smaller groups with limited financing cannot afford the risk of a huge retroactive tax bill if their status is denied.

Denial is better than delay because if affords the opportunity to take the IRS to court.

The whole affair was a plot by Obama to silence political opposition to higher taxes.

You just proved Hillary was right. Showing the 'clip over and over' will sink the GOP in 2014 and 2016. It clearly shows a very frustrated smart and strong Secretary of State Hillary Clinton being berated by republican congressmen for having the temerity to ask Congress why they voted to cut spending for embassy security that could have saved our U S Ambassador and the other people who died in the Benghazi attacks.
