So, you finally found evidence that those mythical subsidies to oil companies exist? Please identify them to us. So far, you haven't been able to identify any. All you can do is regurgitate some party line mantra about some nebulous subsidy to oil companies that nobody can prove exists.
All companies always had the optioin to change full time employees to part time. It wasn't until ObamaKare was forced down everyone's throat that they chose to exercise that option. Obviously, providing health insurance to their employees was acdeptable to those companies before ObamaKare got the Cornhusker Kickback and Louisiana Purchase necessary for it to pass the Senate.
Before ObamaKare was forced on everyone not entitled to any of the exemptions being given to everyone who forced it down our throats, companies had no issue with providing health insurance to their employees. After ObamaKare, there is a big problem.
The only change was ObamaKare.
Therefore, it's either a huge conspiracy involving a multitude of independent companies throughout the country to make Obama look bad, or ObamaKare is the problem.
Now, you're not one of those conspiracy nuts, are you?
"DBWriter"
"real dumb" has been asked umpteen times to provide proof of the subsidies. As you would expect he does one of two things, he either ignores the post or changes the subject.

You right whiners are confused.
Those who support the President do not worship Obama. If you look, we spend our time here correcting your lies.
Where the problem lies is that you freakin hate Obama so much that just regular support seems like worship to you dipsticks.
Why do you people hate Obama so much? Interesting question. Why it is that the election of this President spurred the birth of the Obama hating Tea Party. After just 3 weeks in office no less. Not while Bush was doubling the debt & driving this country into the ground. Nooooooooo. But after Obama was elected.
So, do you think that if MvcCain would have won in 2000, would we see the Tea Party formed?
Be honest with that answer. We all know the answer.
"real dumb"
The tea party still have come into being. McCain is a lberal, he should be honest and switch parties.
I do not hate the boy president nobama as a person I hate the lousy job he has done;
- Higher unemployment
- Spiraling debt
- Millions more American's on food stamps
- Household incomes declining
- Fewer American's having to pay federal income tax
- Home sales and new home starts still depressed
What's to like.

Of course you would say that.

But Obama actually lowered taxes in the stimulus bill.

So why were they protesting Obama. Why weren't they protesting Republican Congressmen & Senators that were voting yes yes yes under Bush? Cantor & Ryan etc.

This makes your premise a joke.

The question should be would the Tea Party have formed in 2/09 if Hillary Clinton won?

A left wing, liberal democrat pushed the forming of the Tea Party, not Obama's skin color.

What's your argument - they should've bought the "I'll cut the deficit in half" BS?

You're trying to rationalize with someone who supports a party with a sitting VP and HML who are documented racists.

If Biden and Reid had made the comments they did and had "R's" next to their names they'd have been gone from politics, never to be heard from again.

Obamacare Is Another Private Sector Rip-Off Of Americans
The private sector allied with government is a second IRS
The government of the “world’s only superpower,” the “exceptional,” the “indispensable” country, claims to know what is best for Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, Mali, Russia, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Brazil, China, indeed for the entire world. However, the “indispensable” country cannot even govern itself, much less the world over which the “superpower” desires hegemony. The government of the “world’s only superpower” has shut itself down.

The government has shut itself down, because it cannot deal with the budget deficit and mounting public debt caused by twelve years of wars, by financial deregulation that allows “banks too big to fail” to loot the taxpayers, and by the loss of jobs, GDP, and tax base that jobs offshoring forced by Wall Street caused.

The Republicans are using the fight over the limit on new public debt to block Obamacare. The Republicans are right to oppose Obamacare, but they are opposing Obamacare largely for ideological reasons when there are very good sound reasons to oppose Obamacare.

Last February 3, I posted on this website a column,“Obamacare: A Deception,” written by an expert on the subject. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2013/02/03/ob...

When Republicans for ideological reasons blocked a single-payer health system like the rest of the developed world has and, indeed, even some developing countries have, the Obama regime, needing a victory, went to the insurance companies and told them to come up with a health care plan that the insurance lobby could get passed by Congress. Obamacare was written by the private insurance industry with the goal of raising its profits with 50 million mandated new customers.

Obamacare works for the insurance companies, but not for the uninsured. The cost of using Obamacare is prohibitive for those who most need the health coverage. The cost of the premiums net of the government subsidy is large. It amounts to a substantial pay cut for people struggling to pay their bills. In addition to the premium cost, it is prohibitive for hard pressed Americans to use the policies because of the deductibles and co-pays. For the very poor, who are thrown into Medicaid systems, any assets they might have, such as a home, are subject to confiscation to cover their Medicaid bills. The only people other than the insurance companies who benefit from Obamacare are the down and out who are devoid of all assets.

I did email Senator Cruz this morning and implored him to let the Democrats own Obamacare at this point. I praised him for his convictions and determination to put the American people first but said no one would blame him or the Republicans for walking away after stressing it was the Senate Democrats who refused to negotiate - not them.
I also said this is the silver lining many conservatives have been waiting for and to please not block the only ray of hope we have left for the future. Americans will know we were right in 2014 and 2016.
Wish every conservative would do the same thing.

So this emergency room doc is talking about the ERs being crowded with the uninsured....but...if the uninsured get insured why would they still use the ER?
If 30 million more people gain access to the healthcare system, that's about 10%. If a Doc sees 5 patients an hour, would i more patient every two hours blow the whole thing?
If you increased the overhead of the average company by 10 percent in one step, most companies in the United States would be out of business the next day. The reality of providing quality health care is the same. There is no way ObamaKare will not degrade health care across the board.
You very obviously have no knowledge of allocation of assets.
Stop embarrassing yourself.

Let's use you as an analogy.

If psuedodave posts 100 times a day, then he is able to post 110 times a day in the same time.
If pseudodave posts 110 times a day, then he is able to post 121 times a day in the same time.
If pseudodave posts 121 times a day, then he is able to post 133 times a day in the same time.
...and so on, and so on, and so on....

You referenced no quantitative stats in your assertion that the additional demand will be automatically covered. You automatically assume there is time (and personnel) to accomodate the additional demand. If there is automatically time and assets to cover additional demand, then it is assumed that is true perpetually. The example above should show you how ludicrous your concept is.
