Has anyone noticed that support for the ACA has gone from31% to 38% in the past 2 months, while support for Repugnants has collapsed in the past week??
When I say collapsed, I mean down, down, down, to the lowest point in their history.
Obamacare is more popular than Repugnants.
Ponder that.
Time for a fight, eh?? Harry Reid and Obama won!!

C'mon people!!

You're as bad as when Rmoney lost the election!!

Buck up!! There'll be other days, other fights.

But they will never again think they can intimidate our President with threats of defunding anything.

And that's as decisive a win for Obama as the election. Perhaps more.

Maybe now they'll stop voting to repeal Obamacare in the House. I mean 40 something times??

I think the American public opinion has delivered a message they didn't quite get last election day.

Tremendous damage to the Repugnants.

What are you talking about? The problem isn't with the government taxing insurance companies across state lines, it is with states deregulating insurance companies as an incentive for them to set up business in their state. If anyone thinks that wouldn't happen...take a look at Texas. They'd whore themselves out for a nickle.
No marxist givverment intrusive imposed tax and fining anything involving anything purchased across state lines.

It would be UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

(I can't help what Texas does---probably because it has a LOT of ILLEGAL immigrants to maintain...NO voter ID required though-ya know --there's that UNConstitutional thing--just in convenient favor of the D libuhrulTic labelduhm label sectors)

I will agree that, yes, senior citizens are still paying about $100 a month for their Medicare Part B premium but I'm assuming it covers things not available to those on the lowest plan in the exchange (like: lab tests, surgeries, and doctor visits) and supplies (like wheelchairs and walkers). I could be wrong since I have no idea what is offered on the exchanges and there is no reason for me to check it out. IMO, it's the "looky-loos" who are jamming up the system in the first place.
NOt with OUT CO-PAYS that go a long with the extra PREMIUM payments a month.

Except for BC/BS--because guess what--in some areas they've ALREADY DISCONTINUED offering THAT choice of PURCHASE to Seniors starting next year.

Nice huh?

U.S. To Become World's Largest Oil Producer, Overtaking Russia

""ONDON, Oct 11 (Reuters)- The United States will become the world's largest oil producer next year - overtaking Russia - thanks to its shale oil boom which has transformed the global energy landscape, the West's energy watchdog said on Friday.

The prediction comes only days after estimates by the U.S. government showed the United States, the world's largest oil consumer, has ceded its ranking as top global oil importer to China, thanks to the shale revolution cutting import needs.

"The United States' place in the driver's seat of growth is also a throwback to decades past," the International Energy Agency said in its monthly report.

The U.S. resurgence as an oil producer is already reshuffling the cards in the game of world energy diplomacy, playing it a new hand in relations with long-term ally and top OPEC producer Saudi Arabia.

Major producers such as Russia are now forced to invest billions of dollars into new pipelines towards Asia as they can no longer rely on demand from the West, and have to deal with increasingly assertive Beijing.""

Looks like Mr. Obama knows a thing or two about increasing oil and ng production.

Again, put down the pipe.

It's funded, even in a shutdown. That's what's so tragic about this for Repugnants. They can't defund it.

It's wired into the system's DNA already.

It's like an enormous succubus.

The Medicare premiums are per person and vary with income.

Medicare covers only 80% of costs, so most people purchase a supplemental policy.

Typical cost for a married couple for Part B, Part D, and supplemental are at least $500-600 per month.

Granted, the coverage is far better than the exchanges, and more importantly, you can find a doctor educated in the United States.

EXCEPT in Illinois-

Windmills and Solar panels got 90 BILLION to FAILOUT from just
Obama spending-while just 60 billion, over YEARS--has reduced coal emmissions considerably!!!----

Electric utilities have already spent $60 billion to control sulfur emissions, and the investment, which continues every year, has paid off. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, sulfur dioxide emissions from electric utilities have gone down 18 percent from their 1973 peak. Taking into account that coal use by utilities has gone up dramatically during the period makes the accomplishment all the more impressive. As new, technologically advanced power plants replace older, less efficient ones, the trend toward lower sulfur dioxide emissions is expected to be enhanced.

utureGen for Illinois

The FutureGen 2.0 project represents a major economic development opportunity for Illinois and local communities. With a total investment of more than $1.3 billion dollars, it will substantially advance clean energy technology. The non-profit FutureGen Industrial Alliance and AmerenEnergy Resources will lead the project.

FutureGen 2.0 will incorporate carbon dioxide capture from the AmerenEnergy coal-fueled plant in Meredosia, Illinois after it is repowered with cutting edge, oxy-combustion clean coal technology. The carbon dioxide will be transported to a regional storage facility through a newly constructed pipeline. A visitor, research and training facility will be constructed nearby.

Construction will begin on the Meredosia power plant, the carbon dioxide pipeline and storage facility in the second half of 2012. Project completion is scheduled by the end of 2015.
