Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

The question is why these companies did not change FT people to PT people before?
There has always een the option to go to PT workers to avoid paying benefits.
Obamacare did not change that.
Wrong..before ObamaKKKare, companies were not required to provide insurance to any employees...ObamaKKKare provided the distinction between full-time and part-time...

compromise used to work, but when you have 30 people in Congress who think they knows what's best for us even though they are only speaking for 23% of us then they are the problem.
30 is a helluva lot more than the one person in the WH who thinks they know what's best for us even though he's only speaking for his liberal elite cronies.(I doubt his pal Clooney is too worried)

Wrong nitwit, it's an Obama/Reid my way or the highway shutdown.
I'm actually happy the Democrats shut down the government. Hopefully they will save some of the money they blow.
Oh, a true Faux News disciple: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." Good luck with that strategy.

"Hours after the government officially lurched to a partial shutdown, a new poll released Tuesday showed Americans really aren’t crazy about Obamacare — but hate the Republican approach of closing the government in an effort to repeal it."

The Quinnipiac University national survey found that the public is split on the Affordable Care Act, with 47 percent opposed to it and 45 percent in favor. But Americans, by a lopsided 72-22 percent margin, say shutting down the government is not the answer.

Would the GOP fare better by refusing to raise the country’s debt ceiling to stop Obamacare? Not much: Americans oppose that approach 64-27 percent.

How about cutting off funding needed to implement the law, President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement? Americans oppose that 58–34 percent.

The poll found Republicans favor the shutdown by a 49-percent to 44-percent margin. But independents oppose it 74-19 percent, and Democrats reject it 90-6 percent.

Republicans own it. You can't escape that FACT.

They never complain here. They blame it all on Obama. They support Republican Candidates like Ryan & Cantor & Santorum who were all instrumental in that spending.
If what you say is true, you would not support any Republican that was in Congress under Bush.
Who do you blame for the recession?
Who?

LOL...are you serious? Is that what this is to you, a blame game?

There's no 'one' person or party to blame for the state of our economy. If this was a 'who do we blame' you'd have to start with every politician who's ever voted for legislation that contained wasteful 'pork' spending and bribes to special interests.

My opinion is this country started to sink very quickly following the State of the Union address on January 8, 1964.

Thanks for reminding me. Republicans were the cause of the last shutdown as well. They're on a roll. You must be proud.

Please post just one bill, just one that was a subsidy for the oil companies. You keep claiming they exist. Offer some back up, not your usual lies and BS.

Here's the 2012 Bill to REPEAL subsidies for Big Oil.

""S. 2204 (112th): Repeal Big Oil Tax Subsidies Act"

Now how could they write a Bill to repeal something that doesn't exist??

Of course, the Repugnants shot the bill down. They get most of their money from oil companies.

"TITLE II--REPEAL OF OIL AND GAS SUBSIDIES

Subtitle A--Close Big Oil Tax Loopholes

Here's the Bill, nitwit. Have one of your dead relatives read it to you.

ObamaKKKare gives employers an excuse to dump medical benefits for non-essential employees on the taxpayers.
99% of these employees weren't eligible for the companies health insurance in the first place....they are and always have been PART-TIME. They didn't have any medical benefits to dump. In fact, they were the exact ones the exchanges were designed to help.

The number of workers with temporary jobs is at an all-time high nationally, and many are finding that they are part of a cycle of such employment — a trend that labor leaders bemoan but manufacturers see as prudent.

By the way, wouldn't that be one of those "unfunded tax cuts" (whatever that is in a real world) you are always so upset about?
The Stimulus package saved us from Bush's Depression. You're an idiot.

China had a Stimulus at the exact same time, to keep their economy from turning into Bush's.

Had Europe done a stimulus instead of cutting spending, they would be out of recession by now.

You continually prove what an idiot you are, Commie fraud.

You're Putin's man on Topix, just as Ted Cruz is Fidel Castro's man in the Senate.
