Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

But nothing will change because the ObamaKKKare exchanges provide access only to the bottom tier of medical care. The welfare bums will actually be worse off.
What in the world makes you think that the "welfare bums" will be worse off under the Affordable Care Act? The Affordable Care Act actually encourages states to expand Medicaid to cover individuals making up to 133% of the federal poverty line and it allows people on Medicaid to go back to work without fear of losing their health insurance(Unless you live in a Republican state where they will do anything to keep the poor people down).

Home Depot Dumps Part-Time Employees on Exchanges and Raises Premiums for Others, Both Because of ObamaKKKare
On Thursday, Home Depot became yet another company that announced it would shift part-time workers to the government-run healthcare exchanges. In addition, a company spokesperson conceded that full-time employees, though they will still get health benefits, would pay more due to an increase in costs next year.
Companies like Trader Joe's and Walgreens have made similar announcements before the Obamacare exchanges are set to open in October.
According to a company spokesperson, "Home Depot's change would affect roughly 20,000 part-time workers who previously had chosen the limited liability medical plan the company offered," which, as Reuters notes, companies can no longer offer after December 31 under Obamacare.
Home Depot's current plan for part-time workers "provided coverage of up to $20,000 depending on the plan and were administered by Aetna Inc."
Part timers never get insurance coverage.

Under the Affordable Care Act, there will no longer be a "them" and "us". Everyone will have health insurance and everyone will be treated equally...something that drives Republicans absolutely batty.

The article is written by a Republican, of course it doesn't say that Republicans got up and left. However, it also doesn't say they didn't. It just says, "it turns out there weren't a whole lot of Republicans in the hearing room for Smith and Wood's testimony either." That is because....they walked out.

Ten days before a possible government shutdown, President Obama said Friday that congressional Republicans are more interested in politics than in managing an economy to benefit the middle class.

"They're focused on trying to mess with me," the Democratic president told a crowd of auto workers at an assembly plant near Kansas City. "They're not focused on you."

Obama spoke shortly after the Republican-run House passed a temporary spending bill that would -- in theory -- keep the government open, but which would also de-fund Obama's health care law.

Obama has pledged to veto the bill, though it is highly unlikely to pass the Democratic-run Senate in any event.

Some congressional Republicans have also pledged to block an increase in the debt ceiling unless funding is pulled from the health care law.

Stressing that debt ceiling allows the government to borrow money to pay its bills, Obama said a failure to increase the limit would lead to a government default. That would be the "height of irresponsibility," Obama said, wrecking the economy and turning the United States into a "deadbeat" and a "banana republic."

OBAMA IS 100% THE BLAME!WHAT HAS OBAMA DONE FOR
THE MIDDLE CLASS WHO HE SAY MAKE MINIMUM WAGE.OBAMA AND DEM HAS DONE NOTHING FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS BUT TAX THE HELL OUT OF THEM!Down the Drain - How the federal government flushed away the $833 billion stimulus
Reason ^| May 2013 | Peter Suderman

If you want to see where a little bit of your $833 billion stimulus went, head south from St. Louis on Interstate 44 until you reach the Mark Twain National Forest. On March 13, 2009, less than a month after President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) into law, the federal government awarded $462,912.30 to a Spokane, Washington, construction firm called CXT Incorporated to build and install 22 “precast concrete toilets” in the park.

These bunker-style commodes did not add to the number of bathrooms in the forest; they replaced existing toilets that didn’t meet Forest Service condition standards or accessibility requirements. And they were not just isolated outhouses. New Mexico got $2.8 million to spend on new toilets in its national parks. Another $42 million went to upgrading toilets and other sanitation facilities in Alaska.

The stimulus wasn’t sold as a plan to build bathrooms.“We’ll put people back to work rebuilding our crumbling roads and bridges, modernizing schools that are failing our children, and building wind farms and solar panels, fuel-efficient cars and the alternative energy technologies that can free us from our dependence on foreign oil and keep our economy competitive in the years ahead,” President-elect Obama said in a November 2008 address. The stimulus, Obama vowed, would “put people back to work and get our economy moving again,” creating between 2 million and 2.5 million jobs. Instead, the economy followed the money right down the drain.

What went wrong? Plenty. The stimulus was rushed to passage based on economic assumptions that remain hotly contested. Its implementation was marred by politics, logistics, and red tape. And the aid it directed toward the country’s least well off may have undermined the very recovery it was designed to hasten. This is what happens when politicians insist that something big must be done, even if they’re not sure what that something should be.

NO MONEY FOR MIDDLE CLASS,SINK OR SWIM
YOU MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR OBAMA AND
THE DEM ARE A BUNCH OF DUMB ASSES!!!!!

Really? Wow.

so let's see, that would mean that Saddam actually sent them to his 'friend' in Assad, which would make him an enemy of the United States (per bushie boy logic) and would therefore justify the use of force against them (again using the bushie boy logic).

But of course, if you say Saddam sent them to the rebels, then they are the enemies of Russia, which is incongruous since the Russians were friends with Saddam.

My goodness son. Your logic is so tangled, it's hard to make out any sense.... at all!

Good Evening again to all my topix friends!!! As you all can see I have been here all day maniacally giving myself multiple brilliant judgits while negativly judging your posts and chit-chatting back and forth to myself using many of my favorite sockpuppets!! A "labor of love" though tiring!! I had to change my depends three times this afternoon but it was worth every diaper as it was challenging and exciting!!
I'm feeling the need to share yet again this morning with my Topix family, to clear the air so to speak! Another recommended form of self-affirmation. My doctor thinks it's a great idea!! Well, here goes!
My liver is totally shot but I don't regret one single day of drinking myself into a drunken, drugged out stupor. I was found on the ground in a semi-coma one morning next to a dumpster behind a disco and taken to the mental facility where I now reside. I have been here since my glory days in the 70's. Though I have no access to booze anymore I do take plenty of Meds!! Since living here all this time I have developed multiple personalities which I have very little control over. My doctor's tell me it is a way to escape the reality of my situation and confinement. Hence the heavy medication.
I have no access to sharp objects of any sort, no scissors, no knives,no ice picks, if you know what I mean. The psychiatric team who treat me feel the computer is a great outlet for my multiple problems and personalities. I adore spending my spare (which is all I have) time on topix venting my anger and hate through these, as they are called, sockpuppets!! I have been known to do a 48 hour stretch more than once!!! I listen to disco and show tunes while posting, it makes me feel invigorated!! Don't concern yourself with my lack of women, never had an interest in them anyway!
I and most of my sockpuppets will be on board all evening tonight making idiotic and mentally deranged comments, the sole purpose being to harass and feebly attempt to insult the legitimate posters who use this forum. I will also be judging your posts all night. I plan to be here for the entire night with my sockpuppets so get ready for an all out judgit blowout shitshow!!!!
Please JOIN in!! I will give you a head start if needed.
I enjoy spending the days and nights here giving out judgits to anyone who doesn't agree with me and I like to think I have full control of this thread!!! I consider it "mine"!!!!!!
PLEASE join me!
Warm and sincerest hugs!!! "Not Surprized"
As many of my topix friends are aware I have an endless supply of fake ip addresses and topix id's which I use every day of my life that I spend on topix.
It helps to pass the time here living on the psych ward where I am permanently confined. It keeps me busy and I feel I am doing something worthwhile with all my spare time. My psychiatrists' think it is good therapy and basically harmless.
With love, Not Surprized!
We know! We Know!

That is no different from the coverage available to current Medicaid recipients. You're batting ZERO. Besides, you were all concerned about having to share the waiting room with them...guess you receive second-rate medical treatment as well.

The parents of the Benghazi victims were about to give their testimony today... when most of the Democrats stood up and WALKED OUT. This is a sign of the ultimate disrespect.

Imagine being the parent of someone who died defending the consulate... and then seeing a row of congressmen walk out of your testimony. Absolutely Pathetic.

Every single one of these congressmen should be fired -- this should permanently end their careers. Agree?
They are Liberal what else did you expect?

They should had said that they were going to testify against Bush, then they all would had stayed!!!
