Barack Obama, our next President

That's a really stupid statement.
It will not stand up to any scrutiny, you moron.
Medical technology is the biggest driver in costs.

Advanced imaging and surgical tools make medicine more effective, but far more expensive than ever before.
Tort reform is a stupid idea from another time that was based on pure bullshit. It is a minor contributor to health care costs. People have a right to redress, you commie freak.

House Republicans may appear to observers to be pushing the government toward a shutdown, but that's not even remotely how they see it.

The GOP rank-and-file still believe that the Senate might accept and the White House might sign a one-year delay of Obamacare in exchange for two months of sequester-level spending to briefly stave off a government shutdown.

"How dare you?" Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said when reporters asked how the House would respond when the Senate rejected its offer. He grew angrier as he continued to question how one could assume the bill was dead on arrival in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

"I have never foreseen a government shutdown and I continue not to see a government shutdown," said Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.), who was a senior Hill staffer before being elected to Congress in 2010. "The Senate has plenty of time to deal with this. This is good, common middle ground that is in this package. I think we're gonna get a big bipartisan vote in the House. I think we're gonna get a big vote in the Senate too."

Voters in survey after survey overwhelmingly say Republicans will be to blame for any shutdown. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has repeatedly said that all GOP attempts to attach Obamacare changes to a government funding bill will be rejected out of hand. President Barack Obama has consistently promised a veto.

Yet it hasn't penetrated. House Republicans' inability to recognize the same reality as voters and their opponents has made it virtually impossible to come to a deal.

Yes, it demonstrates the unpopularity of the program to the cretins in America. The lack of enrollment by these people will NOT increase the program deficit. It MAY increase costs for those who are insured because the more that enroll the lower the costs but it won't affect the funding.
The only way someone who doesn't obtain health insurance affects funding of the Affordable Care Act is with the payment of penalties...that actually increases the programs surplus.
Are you calling the poverty-stricken uninsured "cretins"?

News Flash!!! By delaying the individual mandate, fewer people would sign up which in turn would force premiums to go up. That is exactly what Republicans want to happen. They want to make the exchanges less desirable so the Affordable Care Act will fail. They are not fooling anyone.
If Republicans want to shut down the government rather than allow the Affordable Care Act to proceed as legislated, that is their choice but it is not a good one and it will cost them dearly come the next election.
The only people who won't sign up are those who don't want or need the coverage.

The American people hate ObamaKKKare and the DemoKKKrats will pay at the polls in 2014.

That's it.
Iran will not end its nuclear enrichment program.
There is absolutely no reason Iran end its nuclear enrichment program. They the same rights as any other nation to enrich uranium as part of a civilian nuclear energy and medicine program.

"We do not need military-grade uranium. That's a certainty and we will not move in that direction," Zarif said. "Having an Iran that does not have nuclear weapons, is not just your goal, it's first and foremost our goal."

Zarif has presented an olive branch and we should welcome it.

Every day, Obama moves closer and closer to earning that Nobel peace prize. Must drive you crazy.

Correct. ObamaKKKare forces healthy people to overpay for insurance to subsidize the 5% of the population that consumes more than 50% of medical expenses.

my take is....Lerner(R) targeted tea party types so that Obama would take the hit.

consider....who blew the whistle?

Lerner first disclosed the IRS targeting at a May 10 tax law conference.
