Barack Obama, our next President

Yep, Republicans are digging their own grave. Now to avoid a shutdown, the House will need Democrat votes which will mean the bill will need to be more to the liking of Democrats.
Smooth move Republicans.
the government shuts down every Friday night until Monday morning--aren't you outraged?

Yeah, it was one of those violent, racist, ignorant redneck Democrats in the South.

Hey we Democrats be proud of our yutes like Leosanna. And we are proud of all the many young people in America who vote Democrat and attend Obama rallies and Occupy parks. They can be seen in this video, many proud moments here. Most will likely vote for Obama again in 2016.

The Commonwealth Fund last week released an interesting study (PDF) of young people and Obamacare. It found that between 2011 and 2013, the number of people aged 19 to 25 who had been on a parent’s health insurance plan in the previous year rose from 13.7 million to 15 million.“Of the 15 million young adults on a parent’s plan, an estimated 7.8 million likely would not have been eligible to enroll in that plan prior to the Affordable Care Act,” the Commonwealth Fund reported. The report also found that Republicans were more into this provision of the ACA than Democrats. In March 2013, 73 percent of young Republicans surveyed had heard of the provision, compared with 63 percent of Democratic youths. Maybe it’s because they were more likely to be benefitting from the expansion.“In March 2013, 63 percent of Republican young adults had enrolled in a parents’ policy, compared with 45 percent of Democrats,” the report said.
Rebates are a second, apparently non-objectionable component of Obamacare that has already kicked in. The ACA set standards for the insurance industry, stipulating that firms must spend a certain amount (80 percent) of the premiums they collect on patient care. Under Obamacare, insurers that choose to spend more money on administration, or marketing, or salaries, or dividends have to send rebates to customers. This summer, the first rebates were sent out, some $500 million to 8 million Americans. Now, these rebates are likely to have been shipped disproportionately to Republican households—those with high-end, employee-subsidized coverage. But I haven’t been able to turn up any examples of people refusing thechecks, or sending them back, or burning them—an act FreedomWorks is suggesting people do to their fictional “Obamacare cards.”(If you did burn your Obamacare rebate check, please tweet at me:@grossdm I’d love to speak with you.) Republicans, like Democrats, enjoy receiving checks in the mail.
Then there’s the case of pre-existing conditions—another aspect of Obamacare that is popular among some Republicans. In the old days, they used to say that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality. When it comes to health insurance, it seems a liberal is a conservative who has been mugged by an illness. After having a devastating stroke in 2012, Sen. Mark Kirk had an epiphany about the inadequacy of rehabilitation services for poor people.“My concern is what happens if you have a stroke and you’re not in the U.S. Senate, and you have no insurance and no income,” he told National Journal.“That’s the question I have been asking, and the reality is that if you’re on Illinois Medicaid and are a stroke survivor, you will get just five visits to the rehab specialist.”
....even as they cavil about ripping up Obamacare, and hence the ban on pre-existing conditions, it is common to hear some Republicans speak kindly of the ban.
This is a dynamic we’ve seen over and over again in the past 80 years. Republicans shriek, cry socialism, and offer full resistance to any effort to expand social insurance. Then, after a certain amount of time passes and social insurance measures become popular and effective, they stand foursquare behind them and demand they be protected. Every single stinking component of FDR’s New Deal was a disaster, but don’t you dare touch Social Security! Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society program was a debacle, but keep the government out of Medicare!
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/08...
all fine and dandy when generation DUMB doesn't have to pay for their own insurance--they think it is free--when O'bama starts fining them-that's when the real fun will begin.

Difference is that you offer proof of your racism on a daily basis. You think I forget your bullshit about 'they have such nice cars in their driveways', while you drive an old wreck? You're both envious and hateful, all at the same time. And you make accusations based on no proof, just your condescending racist beliefs.
Tell us more about your sudden love for Saddam's former Generals. I find it interesting that you'd call Bush a liar based on the words of one of Saddam's Generals. Ever hear of 'disinformation', you moron?
You spend your life on this thread. Don't run away every time I show up. I enjoy pointing out your non Christian approach to life.
After all, wasn't it Jesus who said; "F--- the poor. I'm here to promote predatory Capitalism."
You're a clueless liar and a racist.

Keep 'em poor and uneducated and voting Democrat. Right, nuc?
Can't have them independent and educated. Can we?

Oddly enough, I'm suddenly reminded of the Old South.

Well, that brings us back to a question nobody on Earth has been able to answer.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

The answer cannot include anything like "money will start growing on trees."

The part of the economy that pays for everything is 12 trillion dollars.
The debt is one and a half times the size of the part of the economy that pays for everything, 17 trillion dollars.
The Democrats' version of government has to borrow 1.3 trillion dollars every year just for the day-to-day existence of the government.
The debt grows at 8 percent every year, while the part of the economy that pays for everything is stagnant.

An idiot can tell you that government will collapse.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Since it's a certainty the government will collapse, what is the Democrats' plan for government after this certain collapse?

When any agency or department expends all money appropriated, shut that agency or department down until there is more money in the treasury to appropriate.

Duh, more Republican young adults are on their father's health insurance plans than Democrat young adults. Unlike the young Democrats, most young Republicans actually know who their father is. Also, most of those insured on their parent's plans are on plans made available through employment and under the Obama Regime most Democrats don't have to work.

Read carefully, dumbass.
"If it's on the W-2, it's already taxable, dumbass."

Now, for the proof:

For the very ignorant students in the class:
The value of health care coverage provided by your employer is now reported in Box 12 with Code DD to identify the amount. The amount reported in the box should include both the portion paid by your employer and any amount paid in by you.
Prior to ObamaKare, this wasn't on the W-2.
So why is this information showing up on your form W-2 now? Under ObamaKare, most employers must now report the cost of your health care plan. A few small businesses have received an exemption from reporting under the transitional relief subjectively offered by IRS.
If it's on the W-2, it's already taxable, dumbass. The only thing that's required is the order given to the IRS to apply a tax. I'm thinking that will happen in 2017. It doesn't really matter who wins, as far as this goes. The government has been driven so far into debt, it will have to use any excuse it has to get revenue. With the economic "recovery" putting 5 people into poverty and being supported by the government for every tax payer it generates, the IRS will be given the order to count the health care benefit as taxable income and apply the tax.
Do you ever know anything about what comes out of your mouth?
