Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

<quoted text>Most Americans rarely think about medical care at all, except as an expense for insurance.

Half of the population spends little or nothing on health care, while 5 percent of the population spends almost half of the total amount.
Good point!

Let the 5 percent feel the pain and pay for it themselves!

Why should the 95% pay for the irresponsible 5%?

Socialism!

Why every Liberal program end up in disaster?
While every single Conservative program succeed like Apple and Microsoft and Exxon and AT&T, etc.
Why is Capitalism always the only system that rally works?
One word describes unfettered democrat rule: Detroit.

You MIGHT have taught cork soaking in the days before you "caught" religion, but I doubt you even have much of a talent for that. And "pretty much everyone" knows you're an unregenerate lying sack ofshit with as much scruples and wit as your "male" counterparts, Galtowitz the poseur and Fenroid the "off-grid supermod slayer." The fact that you've been skulking "on here" for the past 4 or 5 years would embarrass anybody but a brainless pile of pisspoor protoplasm such as yourself.
And you're as "amusing" as the proverbial fart in a spacesuit.

Obama only cares about Obama. If the dollars he was wasting came out of his pocket,maybe he might think differently about his radical left wing agenda.

<quoted text>Remember reading that somewhere.

I didn't change one of the dates accurately, so will just repost again.

September 2003: Then-Treasury Secretary John Snow testifies before the House Financial Services Committee to recommend that Congress enact "legislation to create a new Federal agency to regulate and supervise the financial activities of our housing-related government sponsored enterprises" and set prudent and appropriate minimum capital adequacy requirements.

September 2003: Then-House Financial Services Committee Ranking Member Barney Frank (D-MA) strongly disagrees with the Administration's assessment, saying "these two entities, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are not facing any kind of financial crisis. The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing." (Stephen Labaton, "New Agency Proposed To Oversee Freddie Mac And Fannie Mae," The New York Times, 9/11/03)

(Both statements were made in September 2003. And it'd be great if a few liberals commented on both.)
Barney Frank was giving money and favors to his boyfriend in Fannie Mac!!!

First of all, the SEIU which paid millions to support Obama is still very supportive of the Affordable Care Act. They are even pitching in for "outreach and enrollment efforts across the country."
Now, the AFL-CIO is another matter and it has to do with their non-profit multiemployer health plans and their belief that "denying eligibility for health benefits to immigrants on the path to citizenship is not only cruel, but also short-sighted given the important connections between coverage expansion and controlling the growth of health costs."
They also feel that "non-profit multiemployer plans should have access to the ACA’s premium tax credits and cost-sharing reductions on behalf of working families, just as for-profit insurance companies will" even though these plans already receive tax breaks.
They believe that "the employer responsibility rules should be fixed by applying a full employer penalty for failing to provide affordable comprehensive coverage to workers who average 20 or more hours per week and adding an employer penalty on a pro rata basis for employees who work fewer than 20 hours per week."
They further believe that "employers that attempt to shirk their responsibility in its entirety by dumping low-income workers into Medicaid should be penalized."

Still think you are on the same page as the AFL-CIO? I seriously doubt it.
Bullshit.

The union plans are "Cadillac" plans subject to taxation.

The fact is that the DemoKKKrats were in such a hurry to pass something that they wrote a lousy law.

actually, it is within the power of Congress to decline to fund any program they choose...
Under House rules, members cannot legislate on appropriations bills. Defunding the Affordable Care Act “legislates” by preventing mandatory spending from going into effect. Can't be done unless the House waives their own rule which certainly wouldn't be beneath them. No telling how low they will stoop.

France's Hollande going down the tubes with Obama

PARIS (Reuters)- French President Francois Hollande saw his approval ratings fall to their lowest level so far in a monthly poll that showed less than a quarter of voters were satisfied with his actions.

In a survey by pollster IFOP published in weekly paper Le Journal du Dimanche, Hollande's approval ratings dropped 5 points from last month to 23 percent.

This was below his previous low of 25 percent in the same poll in April and close to the lowest ever score for a French president, the 22 percent recorded in 1991 by Francois Mitterand, France's previous Socialist president, the paper said.

The poll underlines the task facing Hollande in reviving his popularity at a time when wrangling over tax levels has clouded efforts to revitalize a sluggish economy and his support for military strikes against Syria has drawn mixed reactions.

So, in other words, the AFL-CIO is kicking themselves in the butt for believing Obama and knocking themselves out to get the darn thing passed.

The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW)— a 1.3 million-member labor group that twice endorsed Obama for president — is very worried about how the reform law will affect its members’ healthcare plans.

Last month, the president of the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers released a statement calling “for repeal or complete reform of the Affordable Care Act.”

UNITE HERE, a prominent hotel workers’ union, and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters are also pushing for changes.

Looks like these Obama's unions are also slapping their foreheads saying, "Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!"
