not all of the unions are complaining.
so maybe you should be a bit more discerning when you talk about the unions and the ACA by saying....'Some Unions....'
but it was a nice try.
All the union members who earn decent salaries and have good medical insurance programs will eventually get screwed by ObamaKKKare.

The joke union SEIU, which rips off minimum wage employees for dues, is an exception.

NOAA is political, not scientific.

Snarky remarks is your style.

Some experts say their trust in climate science has declined because of the many uncertainties. The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had to correct a 2007 report that exaggerated the pace of melt of the Himalayan glaciers and wrongly said they could all vanish by 2035.

Climate fluctuates. Always has. The fluctuating ball of fire in the sky probably has a lot to do with it.

Q: Is the new health care law “the biggest tax increase in history”?
A: In raw dollars, perhaps. But several tax increases just since 1968 were larger as percentages of the economy, or in inflation-adjusted dollars.
Using “constant” dollars — all adjusted to equal the value of a dollar in 2009 — the ACA drops to fourth place, and the tax increase signed in 1982 by President Reagan becomes the largest since 1968.
http://www.factcheck.org/2012/07/biggest-tax-...
everyone knows that.
This is more recent and credible.

http://useconomy.about.com/od/healthcarerefor...

The main disadvantage is that the Act could actually increase health care costs over the short term. That's because many people will receive preventive care for the first time in their lives. This could lead to treatment of heretofore unknown illnesses, driving up costs.(Source: CBO, 2009 Study on Preventive Health Care, August 7, 2009)

Most of the disadvantages are accruing to those individuals and businesses that are paying higher taxes. In addition, somewhere between 3-5 million workers could lose their existing, company-sponsored health insurance if their company finds it more cost-effective to let them buy it on their own and pay the penalty.

i deal with her sort all of time, and 'lady' has nothing to do with it.

those who say to me...'I know a lot about politics because i watch FOX.' in a tone of voice that warns me not to try to tell them anything different.

but i always do so i can watch their arrogant head explode.

i am not well liked in the community. 1 liberal for every 50 conservatives and you have a recipe for rhetorical disaster. but somehow i'm always the one who comes away laughing.

WTF is "LiveScience and who funds this garbage site.

Author Stephanie Pappas is a graduate of the UC Santa Cruz (Banana Slugs) science writing program and worked as a freelancer before joining the LiveScience staff. She lacks any degree in science or engineering, hence is totally unqualified for anything but junk science.

In fact, the website should be renamed JunkScience.com .

yes, disputing what has become to be conservative dogma in the environment i live in will not make many friends.

and i don't give a damn, as you can tell. i wasn't born and raised here, as you can tell, so i'm the odd man out anyway.

doesn't help that the last 9 to 5 job i had was being the production manager at the largest employer in the county. and with my style of management, not too many of the rednecks liked how i did things.

instantly firing folks for saying the 'N' word just didn't sit well.

Would you instantly fire Rachel Jeantel, who is unable to utter a sentence without the n-word?
