Obama declared that Mubarak had to go.
wow, I didn't realize President Obama was that powerful. Just his mere words were enough to make Mubarak relinquish power. Of course it had nothing to do with the millions of Egyptians protesting, or the army's refusal to quell the protests......

Galt is guessing, as usual.
Private insurers have profitability at stake when processing forms. To think that initial forms & subsequent refilings are more than Medicare is ridiculous.
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, administrative costs in Medicare are only about 2 percent of operating expenditures. Defenders of the insurance industry estimate administrative costs as 17 percent of revenue.
Galt has opinions.

He keeps trying to exchange it as a fact.

Then you are WRONG.
The IG report found the IRS targeting groups for having 'Tea Party' in their name was illegal.
Makes no difference what your opinion is as this is not decided by a raise of hands.
Better get a good pair of glasses because the IG report said nothing of the kind. It supported President Obama's view that the problem was one of bureaucratic miscommunication and mistakes of application and review inefficiency, but nothing per se "illegal"

maybe you should check your history first

we supplied arms and munitions to England before we entered into WWII,
lend-lease ring a bell?
how about providing destroyer escorts for English convoys?

We supplied weapons and munition to the French in the 50 in their Indochina war games.....

We supplied intel and aid to England during the Falklands War

we supplied arms and munitions to Israel in 73, in fact Israel had lost so many tanks, we were pulling tanks out of Europe and sending them directly to Israel, heck the paint had barely time to dry before being sent into battle

we supplied arms, munitions and intel to Saddam during their war with Iran in the 80's

we supplied arms and munitions to the Muhajjadeen in the 80's in their war against the gov't of Afghanistan

where were the Congressional votes to declare war in those situations>

Why weren't you concerned when republican presidents were providing military aid to one side of a conflict?

the NSA data mining and monitoring of phone calls started after 9/11/2001 with the help of the Patriot Act. We knew about it back then and a whistle blower came forward in 2006

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/law/jan-june06...

An article in Thursday's USA Today reported that three of the largest U.S. phone companies have been providing the National Security Agency with phone records from millions of Americans since 9/11. Two senators discuss the program's legal and security issues now that the public is aware of it.

Where was your concern back then??

Why wasn't there any outrage from conservatives when the Buah administration started the program?

Is it because a black man is now doing the same thing?

If something is NOT done immediately Hezbollah will crash the rebels.
Politically, Syria is friends with Iran so Russia is protecting them.
Politically, Iran is a nemesis to the US and the US would like to see the Iran supporting country fall into control of a group less favorable.
Now for the rub -most of rebels are associated with terrorist groups.
What's with you people who are so nostalgic for the Cold War you're continually trying to re-start it?

Are you like those black-shirted neo-nazis who weren't alive when fascism still existed so now they think its pretty cool?
