Obama/ Liberals Ideology ‘What’s good for America is bad for Liberals/Democrats… Obamacare Bad!!
Commonsense human ideology " What's good for some, may be bad for others!" Here's another " Everything ain't for everybody!" So your point was? America is diverse in financial status so, in order to please or, appease to 1 group, you have to forsake the wishes of others. Who would you forsake, thepoor or, the rich? Yeah I know!

You Liberals would agree after Obama’s Historic call to Rouhani he should (Test) Rouhani by asking him to release Pastor Saeed Abedini from prison Obama’s offer would be minuscule compared to Obama asking Rouhani/Iran to stop their ‘Nuclear Program’ less see if that call really made Difference!!
Why is it you people are always so ill informed? Oh, don't answer that, I know....you only listen to FOX news.

The President did ask Rouhani to release the pastor, along with fellow captives Robert Levinson and Amir Hekmati.

With the news of Obama’s conversation with Rouhani, Abedini's wife called it an “answer to prayer.”

“This is the most encouraging news I have heard since Saeed was imprisoned one year ago,” Naghmeh Abedini said.”I am very grateful to President Obama for standing up for Saeed and for the other Americans who are held captive in Iran.”

Miley went from a forgotten Disney child star to a sensation in no time flat.
Reminds me of Madonna in her heyday, except Miley looks like a child, not a woman.
But she sure did get herself a ton of attention, in this day and age that's what counts.
Yes, she sure did and that's sad that that is what it takes to be famous in this country. Look at the Kardashians! Millionaires for what talent? Exposing themselves 24/7, sex tapes, etc. Everything is all just fake and pathetic. I didn't love Madonnas antics either. But at least she had talent, and a lasting one at that.

You are part of the problem. You swallow whatever the Teatards and FOX news affiliates have to say, then spread it around the internet as "Truth". That article was a fabrication.

Heck, that article even claimed that Obama was exempting Members of Congress which is a claim that has been proven false so many times I've stopped counting. All Obama did was rule that congressional workers will continue to receive the employer contribution to help them buy their insurance on the exchange....same as other big employers.

You people are brain dead.

<quoted text>BY THE WAY WHY DO YOU POSE AS THE Statue of Liberty?WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO FOOL? Obamacare is a threat to personal liberty
Published: Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 08:00 AM.
In response to Mark Lipton’s letter in the Sept. 21 News Herald “What is the goal of defunding Obamacare?”: I cannot speak for everyone in the community, but I can certainly speak for myself. He asked,“What will be defunded?” I would like for all of it to be defunded and I will explain why.
First, I prefer to try to take care of myself and my family. I do not want or need IRS agents and the secretary of Health and Human Services deciding which if any procedures I may or may not be having. Since it is my health, I think I should be able to make those choices.
Also, this act was passed against the will of the American people, which speaks volumes as to what this law is all about. It is not about health care at all. It is about control of people. It is about people being dependent upon the magnanimity of government in their everyday lives.
Second, our president stressed over and over how “if you liked your insurance you could keep it.” Well, I don’t know how to break it to those of you who believed that, but the president lied. I am at an age where my wife and I do not want or need “maternity” benefits in our health insurance plans, but we must pay for it nonetheless because “Obamacare” states that insurance policies must conform to the “new law.” I also don’t need the mental health coverage, but guess what? I have to pay for that. too. Not because I might need it, but so that those who do need it and cannot “afford it” I can pay for it for them.
Our president also stated that our insurance rates would go down some $2,500 per year, yet mine have gone up three times. I really would like someone to explain how three increases relate to “savings.”
Also, many companies are cutting their employees’ hours so that they would not qualify for full-time status so that they would not have to pay the fine for not insuring them. This burden will be put off on those who are part time and they will be penalized if they fail to have coverage. I know several people who are working multiple part-time jobs so as not to be counted as full-time employees. One I know is working more than 60 hours a week between two jobs and is paid no overtime because he is part time at both.
Am I suppose to care what this Teatard "thinks?" LMAO It's an opinion piece, nothing more.

Just a day after President Barack Obama answered a phone call from Iranian president Hassan Rouhani - the first contact a U.S. president has had with an Iranian leader since Jimmy Carter spoke by phone with Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in 1979 - Sen.

someone please tell Ted Obama doesn't have to listen to him even though self important arrogance plays well with self important arrogant tea party types.
It does reinforce the notion that Ted Cruz is certainly NOT presidential material. What an arrogant jerk.

""Wall Street Pleads With GOP To Put The Debt Ceiling Gun Down""

""A former GOP governor and major voice for Wall Street minced no words on Friday about the repercussions the United States would face for defying the debt ceiling.

In a Washington Post op-ed, President & CEO of the American Bankers Association Frank Keating expressed how grave a decision it would be for Congress to default on its nearly $17 trillion in debt.

"Using the debt ceiling as leverage in the deficit debate is unwise and dangerous," Keating wrote. "Citizens nationwide are frustrated with the political stalemate in Washington. But our nation’s financial integrity should not be used as a bargaining chip."

In his role at the ABA, Keating leads the 135-year-old association, speaking for banks of all sizes and charters in the $13 trillion industry. Additionally, Keating has served on the Bipartisan Policy Center's Debt Reduction Task Force -- a group of former cabinet members, officials and other sources from both parties that made recommendations for reducing the U.S.' fiscal troubles.

During his time in politics, Keating was governor of Oklahoma for two terms (1995-2003), leading the state through the Oklahoma City bombing tragedy. In the Washington Post op-ed, he notes that honoring fiscal obligations are not a partisan issue, referring how he balanced his state's budget for eight years running.

"As George Washington said,'No pecuniary consideration is more urgent than the regular redemption and discharge of the public debt; on none can delay be more injurious, or an economy of the time more valuable,'" Keating wrote.""

Don’t know and don’t care right now.
I just think she is neat. You know they would call her Administration the Hillbilly Administration. That one is a given. She has a personality that would find a way to make it her own and make it a complement. That is rare in a person.
And with this to all have a great night and remember to be safe.

If a person wants to take the initiative for choosing and paying the expense of his own families medical coverage that should be, ultimately, his or her right. While I see universal health care as a good thing, I don't agree that mandated health care, especially when some can't afford to carry the cost, be forced on all people. A lot of people would be apposed to the whole thing on the premise of their belief that living "healthy" would prevent their need for the service of a physician to begin with. Personally, if we are to have comprehensive coverage by law, I would like to see a lower tax index granted a person who kept themselves in good shape, didn't smoke and lived what was considered to be a healthy life style. Tax deductions for health club fees would be another good incentive towards influencing people to keep in good shape as well.
