The so-called "birthers" want that document shown on the White House website submitted as evidence of Obama's eligibility.
For some reason, Obama's lawyers will say and do anything to avoid having to submit that obviously fraudulent "birth certificate" being shown on the White House website in any case. Now, why would they do that?
Perhaps because they are aware of the fact that knowingly submitting fraudulent evidence will get you bent over in a prison shower?
How about doing what the so-called "birthers" want and submit that document as proof of Obama's eligibility.
If that document is proven legitimate, this case will disappear faster than a male page off Barney Frank's New York hotel balcony.

It's not about political parties, but about the fairness of forcing one group of people to pay for the medical care of another group of people.
And that too. How can liberals think the young paying more so the elderly and the poor can get free health care is fair?

There's nothing fair or compassionate about that.

If the young voluntarily offered to pay more, that's one thing. But the government forcing them to pay more so the liberals can sleep better at night is nothing more than stealing disguised as compassion.

The government is not our collective conscience - the main issue that's creating a divide in this country.

That was Boehner's primary assignment, to make everything go away until after the coming elections.
Son, the t-p have been trying to make that stick for quite a while now.

And with the government shut down courtesy of the reich wing nuts, people can see what cons 'stand' for.

I don't see the problems of the non cons being anywhere near as bad as what can happen to you idiots. Caving in was the first step in that process some of your nuts can now understand... which is why the funding bill passed the House.

And with no effective leader, the House is effective a listless, neutered, loose confederation of self appointed anarchists.

Be proud. You work hard to attain this.

He and the Democrats pretended they had a one-party system in 2009 and 2010.
So when Republicans won back the House in 2010, it upset the apple cart so demonizing them was the next best way to get rid of them.
Are you NOT surprised Republicans would be a little tee'ed off and put up a fight to be a part of the political process?
And are you NOT surprised they didn't want to kiss the king's ring when he demanded they give him everything he wanted now?
Obama could not be more disconnected from the political process if he were King Tut.

<quoted text>you do know that O'bamacare is not going to stop bankruptcies... people who buy insurance on the new exchange will face out of pocket limits they may not able to afford. For a family plan the annual out of pocket limit will be over $12,000. This is a financial burden many families simply can’t afford, especially while dealing with all the other expenses normally faced when taking care of a very sick family member.
In fact, data from Massachusetts which adopted a very similar state based reform plan indicates the ACA will only modestly reduce this problem. From research on Massachusetts right before and after implementation.
In 2009, illness or medical bills contributed to 52.9% of bankruptcies in Massachusetts. In contrast, in early 2007, medical bankruptcies accounted for 59.3% of personal bankruptcies in the state (P.44 for comparison with 2009 proportion) and 62.1% nationally (P.02). Because the total number of personal bankruptcy filings in Massachusetts increased by 51% between fiscal years 2007 and 2009, the absolute number of medical bankruptcies in the state actually increased by more than one third during that period, from 7504 to 10,093.[...]
http://www.pnhp.org/sites/default/files/docs/...
Even before the changes in health care laws, most medical bankruptcies in Massachusetts, as in other states, affected middle-class families with health insurance. High premium costs and gaps in coverage— copayments, deductibles, and uncovered services— often left insured families liable for substantial out-of-pocket costs. None of that changed. As a matter of fact-most people will experience higher out-of-pocket costs they can't afford.
From your source: "one quarter of bankrupt families had experienced a recent lapse in coverage". Problem solved.

Note: The other reason medical expenses represent a large percentage of bankruptcies is because loss of income due to an illness is considered a medical expense. That has nothing to do with the cost of medical care. Health insurance doesn't make catastrophic illnesses go away. DUH!

Deadly drug cartel shootout with Mexico police linked to "grenade-walking" scandal

.




(CBS News) CBS News has learned of a shocking link between a deadly drug cartel shootout with Mexican police last week and a controversial case in the U.S. The link is one of the grenades used in the violent fight, which killed three policemen and four cartel members and was captured on video by residents in the area.

According to a Justice Department "Significant Incident Report" filed Tuesday and obtained by CBS News, evidence connects one of the grenades to Jean Baptiste Kingery, an alleged firearms trafficker U.S. officials allowed to operate for years without arresting despite significant evidence that he was moving massive amounts of grenade parts and ammunition to Mexico's ruthless drug cartels.

The gun battle took place last week in Guadalajara. Authorities say five members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel used at least nine firearms and ten hand grenades against Mexican police. If one of the grenades was supplied with the help of Kingery, as believed, it adds to the toll of lives taken with weapons trafficked by suspects U.S. officials watched but did not stop.

The Kingery case was overseen by the same Arizona U.S. Attorney and ATF office that let suspects traffic thousands of weapons to Mexican drug cartels in the operation dubbed Fast and Furious. The strategy was to try to get to the cartel kingpins, but it was halted after CBS News reported that Fast and Furious weapons were used by cartel thugs in the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry on December 15, 2010. Weapons trafficked by other ATF suspects under surveillance were used two months later in the cartel murder of Immigration and Customs Agent Jaime Zapata in Mexico on February 15, 2011.

On Wednesday, ATF told CBS News it has "no information" about the Kingery connection to last week's gun battle in Mexico.

As CBS News previously reported, documents show ATF began watching Kingery in "2004 related to AK47 purchases" he was believed to be trafficking to Mexico.

In 2009, ATF also learned Kingery was dealing in grenades; weapons of choice for Mexico's killer cartels. Documents show they developed a secret plan to let him smuggle parts to Mexico in early 2010 and follow him to his factory. Some ATF agents vehemently objected, worried that Kingery would disappear once he crossed the border into Mexico. That's exactly what happened.

Kingery resurfaced several months later in 2010, trying to smuggle a stash of grenade bodies and ammunition into Mexico, but was again let go when prosecutors allegedly said they couldn't build a good case. In 2011, Mexican authorities finally raided Kingery's factory and arrested him -- they say he confessed to teaching cartel members how to build grenades and convert semi-automatic weapons to automatic. The Justice Department has not provided an update on whether it's trying to extradite Kingery to the U.S., and an ATF spokesman said on Wednesday that he doesn't know the status of his case.
