And as I stated at the end of the day does it matter, we haven't stayed on budget since the Eisenhower administration. At least the Democrats were honest enough to say why even have a fckin' budget, we're never gonna keep to it.
We never 'stayed on budget' during the suppy-sider Administrations of Reagan and Bush43 and both times it ended in financial disaster , S&L and recessions under Reagan and the bigger Lehman bros. collapse and Wall Street crisis and recession at end of Bush43 's second term. Can't republicans let go of Reagan's nipple and just admit supply-siders SUCK!:-D

You are more contrary than reasonable. Unfortunately.
Everything I posted is fact so, if I lost all credibility from you, it wasn't worth having. Just like you opinion on Reagan!

that is such a lie. Emergency room visits is a pittance compared to the cost to the taxpayer for O'bamacare. Not only that but the hospital gets tax cuts 10 times greater than the cost of their "charity emergency room care." but you knew that didn't you?
U.S. Hospitals are advertising in Mexico to come have your baby here in the United States-why are they doing that? O'bama cut a deal with them too?

Here is the truth that Obamabots do not understand.

Obamacare is complicated, but essentially companies with 50 or more full-time workers are required to offer coverage that meets certain basic standards and costs no more than 9.5 percent of an employee’s income. Failure to do so means fines for the employer.(Full-time work is defined as 30 or more hours a week, on average.)

But do the math from the worker’s side: For an employee making $21,000 a year, 9.5 percent of their income could mean premiums as high as $1,995 and the insurance would still be considered affordable.

With such a small income,“there is just not any left over for health insurance,” said Shannon Demaree, head of actuarial services for the Lockton Benefit Group.“What the government is requiring employers to do isn’t really something their low-paid employees want.”

Aren’t low-income workers supposed to get tax credits to help them purchase private insurance, though? Yes indeed — unless their employer has offered them “affordable” coverage and they’ve turned it down. So if you reject the sort of “affordable” coverage described above, if only out of simple necessity, you’re out of luck on subsidies.

So, you disagree with Jeb then? He worries that there will not be enough people to take care of the elderly white folk!
Who will clean the asses of the old white folks? The white kids?
"silly"
I would guess he is more concerned about how to pay for the millions more going to food stamps. The millions fewer paying taxes to support the programs for those with their hands out.
You cam thru in style, just what one would expect, you let your overt racism come to the front. You are not concerned about the elderly black folks who need taking care of? In your mind the ones cleaning the asses of old black folks should be white kids?

<quoted text>it has to be more than 30 million-the state and local governments are laying people off and or firing them because they can't afford to pay the health care. I heard this was happening all over the place, but especially in Illinois.
Bob Corker of Tennessee solution is to put a big government public works project (hire back 20,000 public workers to build an extension of the border fence with Mexico and man the fence with more border agents)in the Immigration reform bill. He'll hide the public works under "Homeland Security/Defense" so as to fool his tea party base into approving Immigration reform because nothing is more popular than God than "Defense".:-D

Not the responsible ones. If you want to solve that problem, set up some qualifications at emergency rooms. You come to an emergency room with a cold, you get sent to the private walk in clinic that depends on customer payments. You idiots redefined what an "emergency" room is. Stupid ewes!

President Obama spent months in 2010 warning Americans about the 'threat' to democracy posed by conservative groups right at the time the IRS began targeting these groups.
(Timeline and quotes listed in article.)
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788...
Says Kimberley Strassel of WSJ who wrote the article,“Yet we are to believe that a few rogue IRS employees just happened during that time to begin systematically targeting conservative groups?"
...That's what they WANT us to believe. The WSJ and Strassel proved why we shouldn't.
First off Carol many of these groups especially Tea Party groups aren't conservatives. Barry Goldwater was a conservative as was Everett Dirksen, Jack Kemp Ronald Reagan, Dwight Eisenhower and Bob Dole. The current crop in the house like Erik Cantor, Paul Ryan, Louis Gomert and Michelle Bachman are radical right wingers. Testimony has already established that the employees in the Cincinnati office overwhelmed with 501 applications sought some way to separate the wheat from the chaff.
And yes we do need to fear these shadowy right wing organizations that want to turn this country into a corporate plutocracy. They want to reduce the American workforce to wage slaves solely to line their own already bulging pockets. They use fools like you, pandering to your irrational fears and bigotry to further their ends.
