The ACA is a long term program with plenty of room for tweaking as unforeseen problems arise. It's not perfect but it's good start to righting a dysfunctional health care system that should have been dealt with twenty-thirty years ago.

Then you must be admitting you're the attacker son......

That ought to work with Wall Street banks ---make them pay for their financial crimes with jail time and nationalization.

WASHINGTON (AP)-- The Federal Reserve has decided against reducing its stimulus for the U.S. economy, saying it will maintain the pace of its bond purchases because it thinks the economy still needs the support.

The Fed says it decided to hold off on slowing the $85 billion a month in bond purchases to see more conclusive evidence that the recovery will be sustained.

In a statement after its meeting, the Fed says that the economy is growing moderately and that some indicators of labor market conditions have shown improvement. But it noted that rising mortgage rates and government spending cuts are restraining growth.

The bond purchases are intended to keep long-term loan rates low to spur borrowing and spending.

Many thought the Fed would scale back its purchases, despite mixed economic reports.

It's a joke. It's just another big spending program with money we don't have. It does nothing to solve the actual problems.

<quoted text> You want to kill your future go ahead but you saying that people trying to stop the killing of innocent babies is sick in the head is some very dark humor I must say.
It is my educated guess that those who really want to and are actively trying to stop the deaths of innocent babies(?) do not follow WIC or SNAP users around stores clearly displaying that they feel they have much more a right to be there than they. I also think they might be more active in getting health care for all expectant mothers and "innocent" children, as well as basic necessities until they can provide for themselves...doing all one can to provide intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually to increase the numbers of those who can provide would also be a keystone of such "future" saving, but the Gormless Obsolete Primates do really care about that, do they?

Dear Mr. President:
So you, the commander-in-chief, were making a joke as a deadly attack was taking place at a nearby military base. It’s hard to imagine a more tasteless moment in presidential history.
Fortunately, not many people heard your obscenity, because the cable networks had bailed to cover the slaughter.
Yet you plodded on and soon found your patronizing groove, allowing that some Republicans are “decent folks.” Of course, to earn that honor, they have to “step up,” meaning agree with you.
The rest was predictable— how you’re focused on the jobs crunch, the deficit, blah blah blah.
Naturally, you reminded us that you won the election. Thanks for clearing that up.
The speech, then, was a routine summary of your worldview—Obama good, everybody else bad, except those who agree with Obama.
It’s the timing that I can’t get over.
The fact that you went ahead before police had released the full number of dead or wounded is breathtaking.
Heroic law-enforcement agents still were plucking terrified survivors off rooftops with helicopters and hunting for what they thought was an accomplice.
The unknowns — including who did it, why and whether the shooting was a terrorist act — had so unnerved the Capitol that Congress was in lockdown most of the day.
Yet news reports say there was not even a discussion in your office about whether to postpone the speech.
Again, shades of Benghazi:
* Your disappearance during the attack on Sept. 11th of last year still has not been explained.
* We know you had no contact with your Defense Secretary after about 6 p.m., and presumably went to sleep even as four Americans were being killed in the Libyan deathtrap.
* The next day, you spoke in the Rose Garden as your aides spread the lie that the attack was the spontaneous outgrowth of a demonstration against an anti-Muslim video.
* You concluded your remarks by vowing that “justice will be done,” then hopped on Air Force One FOR A CAMPAIGN TRIP TO LAS VEGAS.
America is still waiting for justice, Mr. President. But while we wait, I humbly offer a suggestion.
Go away. Just Go Away.
If that is asking too much, then please, please be quiet!
For America and for decency.
Nobody listens to Obama any more because his credibility is shot.

It's worrying me that the bubble is getting bigger and bigger. I just have the feeling this is going to end bad.
