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 ...

Where is my 'navigator'?

It's only day one....
"MSNBC’s Mara Schiavocampo ran into difficulties as she tried to sign up for the newly launched health-care exchanges on Tuesday. After getting an error message on the website, she called the help line twice, but wasn’t able to reach a navigator on the other end. Instead, she was put on hold for 35 minutes."

Not really. Individual liberty carries with it personal responsibility that a dumbed down America is not ready or willing to accept.

And the prospect of self-determination scares a lot of people because true liberty comes without the government’s safety net, and consequences of one’s actions can be painful or costly.

A person bears the sole responsibility of his own actions in a truly free society, and must answer for his actions if they violate the right of another person. The only real safety net that comes with Liberty, and self-determination, is personal integrity, honesty, family, faith, and respect for one’s fellows, among others.

One must assume these ideals for himself - they can be taught, but the individual must choose to accept them. Sadly, and not surprisingly, there is a decided LACK of these traits in our modern society today.

Democrats, liberals and progressives discourage real freedom by promoting dependency and victimhood.

Well, that certainly proves we don't have a narcissist leader who has no concept of governance and how it's supposed to work.
The only negotiation the GOP hoped for was fairness for all Americans - not just corporations and Congress.
You again prove yourself to be a liar who has no understanding of what has happened.

They shut down the Gov't, yet Obamacare began today. HAHAHAHA

You lose. It can't be delayed now, it's in effect.

The GOP push was the same as ever. To deny Obama any success on any issue. It's been stated clearly by Repugnants since Obama was elected.

As for your 'fairness for all' stupidity, that's just another lie.

Obama should negotiate with balckmailers and terrorists in the House??

Not in your wildest dreams, you cigarette smoking nitwit.

Yes, absolutely agree. When single payer healthcare was first brought about in Canada; similar ignorant remarks were made; "Oh, it's socialism, it's communism, etc"; well, now no Canadian would give it up. Imagine an entire country that doesn't have to worry about going bankrupt if they have to have surgery?
The entire world looks at these teabaggers in wonderment! Who wouldn't want to have healthcare? Seriously?

the fact that you're so frightened of the ACA is proof that it will be a resounding success.

Your side just lost the House for 2014 with their hate America platform.

Nice job, Smokey.

If I order a cheeseburger and the waiter offers me a burger without cheese... that's a compromise.

If I order a cheeseburger and the waiter offers me a turd burger without cheese... that's an insult, not a compromise. If I ask for a just a hamburger without cheese... well, that's compromise...If the waiter offers me (in response) a turd burger with cheese... that still an insult.

If the waiter says take the turd burger (with our without cheese) or he's shutting down the restaurant, that's crazy....

Obamacare trade-off: Lower premium, higher deductible

WASHINGTON — You might be pleased with the low monthly premium for one of the new health insurance plans under Obama’s takeover, but the added expense of co-payments and deductibles will burn a hole in your wallet.

I agree--Republicans should let people see for themselves as ObamaCare self-destructs.

Unfortunately, the full ramifications of this disaster won't be seen until well after the next election, after amnesty brings in millions more "takers" to the program and after the obama's are out peddling their next fictional autobiographies while not having to be on the short end of the healthcare stick (long waits to see inferior physicians who will provide limited care depending on age and "value to society").

Why do you think Obama has delayed so many of the bill's most unpopular parts until 2016 or beyond?

Obama thinks the Republicans have caused all the "crises" associated with this bill.

Not that employers aren't hiring and putting more and more employees on part-time employment.

Or his own Democrats calling it a "train wreck" and "beyond comprehension".

Nah...that's not it.

Perhaps because knowingly submitting fraudulent evidence will get you sent to prison and bent over in the shower?
Prove your case. Submit that document as evidence.
And, precedents? I've actually got a life. Perhaps you can post those "precedents" again so I can have a look at your supposed proof you copied and pasted from some propaganda site, which is your most noted MO. I'm going to get something quick to eat now. I'll be back to look at your work in a little while. Later, I'll be attending to my other life. You should try it.
While you're at it, tell us again about that Masters in Geology you claimed to have.
My case has been amply proven. I don't have to prove anything. Your whole insanity was rejected by America.

You're paid to promote hatred by Putin. You failed.

America rejected you and your birfer buddies.

Obama was elected twice, once on the strength of Obamacare.

He beat the Magic Mormon's ass, America rejected Mitt's 'I'll repeal Obamacare on Day One"

How'd that work out for you, commie fraud??

Like I said last night, Republicans need to just tell the American people they tried their best and say it's the Democrats' baby.

And stand by not raising the debt ceiling that's right around the corner again.

And wait until 2014.

Obama is relishing this shutdown far too much.

While you are at it, tell about their politicans and wealthy who either pay out of pocket for faster, better care and/or travel to the US.

July 2013
Long waits for surgery and medical treatment cost Canadians more than $982 million in lost time and productivity last year, a new Fraser Institute report says.

The study, The Private Cost of Public Queues for Medically Necessary Care, calculates that the 870,462 patients who waited for surgery last year lost an average of $1,129.

When hours outside the work week are factored in, including evenings and weekends (less than eight hours of sleep per night), the estimated cost of waiting increases to about $3,447 per patient — more than $3 billion in total.

“Canadians face some of the longest waits for health care in the developed world. This creates unnecessary pain and suffering for patients and their families and reduces their ability to participate fully in their lives,” said Nadeem Esmail, the think-tank's director of health policy studies.

Canadians waited 9.3 weeks, on average, between an appointment with a specialist and treatment, for a total loss of time of 10.6 million weeks. That wait didn't include the delay in getting to see a specialist in the first place.

The average wait in Ontario was the shortest among the provinces — seven weeks on average. Heart patients waited a full week, on average, before receiving emergency surgery, while people with broken bones and damaged ligaments waited nearly 18 weeks to see an orthopedic surgeon.

Medical costs, such as increased risk of mortality or adverse consequences resulting from long delays for treatment, are also not included in the $982-million figure.
