Time's up. Bruce Bartlett was Reagan's economic czar and adviser, not a 'socialist'. Read my post again carefully and the following link to the Bartlett article.

The president and both parties in Congress have come together &#133; to cut nonessential spending and increase taxes.”Check this out: http://www.forbes.com/2009/11/25/shared-sacri ...

You are hunting for saints and sinners to buttress your political fantasies. So do Forbes and other for-profit media outlets because conflict and controversy sell. Always have. Always will.

Yellow journalism is alive and well.

Yer Bartlett dood is a loose canon with a few loose screws. He was pro Supply-Side and now he's against it? Some of the people who support his schizophrenic behavior are high society crooks. For example, Robert Hormats is a well connected wine-and-croissants jerk who was formerly Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs and then traipsed all through the U.S. Government kissing butts. At one point, he violated SEC Rules by opening his big mouth to investors about a Chinese move that had not yet taken place.

The exact OPPOSITE occured in CA which has already begun enrollment in gov't exchanges.
No premium increass.
The majority of Americans won't be affected at alk.
Wrong again, Nobama
Obama’s healthcare reform will increase individual-market premiums by as much as 146 percent in California, despite state officials’ claim that it would lower them.

New data shows that premium rates would only decrease for small employer plans, but that the rates charged to individuals will increase, according to Peter Lee, the executive director of the Covered California, the state’s new health insurance exchange.

State officials last week boasted that its version of Obamacare would serve as a “home run for consumers in every region of California,” Lee explained. But the numbers generate a different narrative – one that depicts the flaws of the Affordable Care Act.

Due to its overwhelming number of regulations and mandates, Obamacare may increase the cost of health insurance for those who purchase it on their own, argues Forbes contributor Avik Roy. A 25-year-old non-smoking male, for example, is given only the catastrophic healthcare plan as the cheapest option. This Covered California plan has monthly premiums averaging $184. The second-cheapest plan, called the “bronze” plan, costs $205 a month.

In comparison, the median cost of the five cheapest healthcare plans for the same individual was $92 per month in 2013. For the typical 25-year-old Californian male buying his own insurance, premiums will be 100 to 123 percent more expensive when Obamacare is fully implemented, Lee told Forbes.

Californians over the age of 30 do not have the option to acquire the cheapest plan, and must instead purchase the “bronze” or more expensive packages. A non-smoking 40-year-old on the “bronze” plan will on average be required to pay $261 a month.

Overall, individual-market premiums would increase by 64-146 percent, and an average of 116 percent.

The numbers starkly contradict the statements made by state officials and President Obama himself. Earlier this month, the president said that “whenever insurance premiums go up, you’re being told it’s because of Obamacare – even though there’s no evidence that that’s the case.”

The guy that is in charge of the exchange says you are a liar. Ha ha ha.

Yes, it is one of her least idiotic statements ,but that's not saying much. Sarah Palin totally missed President Obama's overall cautious approach in limiting U S involvement in the Syrian civil war by a modest escalation from strictly humanitarian , non-lethal aid to providing small arms and ammunition to the rebels without no fly zones or direct troops on the ground. This is a good way to apply greater pressure on Assad and indirectly on his two main Great Power allies Russia and China, who don't want direct U.S. military intervention , to accept a peace settlement by negotiation with the rebels.
