<quoted text>How unfunded? Go read the ACA then we'll talk once you find out what is in it. Millions of people with preexisting conditions can now purchase healthcare insurance . That'll be an economic boon to the insurance industry and a health boon to more of America's population .
Who pays for the high cost of those pre-existing conditions?

Answer: Other policyholders and/or the taxpayers.

Maybe they should be covered, but everybody needs to understand that they are paying the bill in higher premiums.

Used to think it was just a matter of being misled and tried to give you liberals the benefit of the doubt.
But when you start pulling the leash yourselves over the cliff....
Following in the footsteps of others in the right-wing media, Fox News host Sean Hannity selectively edited a video of outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta to portray President Obama as "virtually absent" during the September 2012 attack on a diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. In fact, Panetta testified that White House officials were kept informed of events throughout the incident.

On the February 7 edition of his Fox News program, Hannity said "a major bombshell was revealed" during Panetta's testimony during a congressional briefing that Obama "was virtually absent" during the Benghazi attack. Hannity then played segments of Panetta's testimony.

But Hannity did not air the section of Panetta's testimony in which he pointed out that information about the attack "went to the White House" and that Obama stayed in contact with military officials and was "well-informed" during the attack. Hannity also failed to air a clip of Gen. Martin Dempsey stating that White House staff "was engaged with the national military command center pretty constantly through the period, which is the way it would normally work."

Hannity joins numerous other right-wing outlets in selectively editing the testimony of Panetta and Dempsey.

Republicans will bring down America to destroy the President

In the lead-up to the start of President Obama's series of speeches laying out his view of how to strengthen the economy, some of the Washington-based challenges facing that very economy were on full display.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke recently warned Congress, for instance, that the continued uncertainties it has created through its fiscal fights threaten the same economy it claims to want to boost.

But Bernanke should be getting used to being Washington's version of the mythical Cassandra. He is largely being ignored as partisan policymakers raised the specter of a government shutdown later this year as they staked out their positions for the fall's debt ceiling and budget battles.

When a reporter on Tuesday asked White House press secretary Jay Carney if the president was willing to abide a government shutdown if congressional Republicans insisted on lower spending levels for programs Obama considers priorities, Carney didn't exactly say no but sought to throw the matter back into the lap of Republicans.

Moocher? Please provide a definition. I have been paying federal income taxes and social security donations since the 50's, more than 50 years. We still write a check every quarter to the IRS. You say it is mooching for one to take the benefits they earned? No wonder you are laughed at and demeaned by nearly every poster who responds to the drivel you so inefectually try to spew.

Thank you in advance sonicmoron--I know you want us to be as informed as a FOXbot like you.

CNN host calls out Sean Hannity for ‘deceptive’ video editing
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2010/09/12/kurtz-c...
“Under the tax plan passed by the last administration, taxes are scheduled to go up substantially next year, for everybody,” he explained, in the unedited version of the remarks.“By the way, this was by design.”

That's a deceptive pile of horseshit...excuse my French.

The tax cuts were set to expire "by design" only because Republicans knew they'd never get the votes without limiting them to 10 years.

During the 30 months after the Bush tax cuts went into effect, the private sector added 5.3 million jobs - according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Current Employment Survey - more than under Obama's version.

Also, the new jobs added under Obama have been lower-paying jobs and reducing real median household income by more than $2,000.

The Bush tax cuts, in contrast, encouraged the private sector to add more jobs while simultaneously increasing real median household income - according to the U.S. Census Bureau Race and Hispanic Origin of Householder — Households by Median and Mean Income: 1967 to 2011.

Under Obama, in the last three years, 2.7 million more Americans fell into poverty.

It was "by design" so Democrats could screw things up - as usual.

Good think Clinton had a Republican Congress for 6 of his last two terms. It's the only reason he didn't screw things up too.

President Bush said, "I wish they would have called it something other than the 'Bush tax cuts'. There'd probably be less angst amongst some to pass it."[48] He argued strongly for maintaining the rates: "I do believe it's very important to send the signal to our entrepreneurs and our families that the government trusts them to spend their own money. And I happen to believe lower taxes is what stimulates economic growth and what we need now in our country is economic growth."[48]
