maybe you should have read what George H.W. Bush and Brent Scowcroft had said about taking out Saddam, before you made such an asinine remark.

Basically we'd be in another Vietnam with a country divided amongst itself. Only this time there would be 3 factions Sunni, Shia and Kurd. That no matter how long we stayed, once we left a brutal religious civil war would break out.

It doesn't matter who was POTUS when we pulled out, the outcome was sealed the day we took Saddam out. Ask any Middle East expert, and no anyone associated with PNAC is automatically disqualified as a Middle East expert, especially considering they didn't even know there are different sects of Islam.

There are only two ways to prevent a civil war between the Sunnis, Shias and Kurds is to have over 1/2 million troops maintain the peace or install another Saddam like dictator.

Geesh, just how ignorant can you get.

Seems like ever time you think these crazies have maxed out they somehow find a way to get deeper into looney land. It's obvious since their latest beat down they are like a swarm of crazed bees darting in and out crasping gropping and buzzing incoherently..Totally amusing but kinda scary that fellow Americans can act so Al Qaeda like, and pass themselves off as patriots. Sad but true.

You mean what Richard Millhouse Nixon tried to do back in the 70's?

Man you people are absolutely friggin perplexing. In the 90's when Clinton championed single-payer universal health care coverage, you said no. The GOP plan was to make health insurance mandatory, thus spreading out the cost amongst all Americans.

Now that we have a President who actually championed that idea, you and your GOP nutcases are against it.

Talk about a flip flop.

for universal health care coverage until Democratic President Clinton proposes it.
for mandatory health care insurance until Democratic President Obama proposes it.

No wonder you guys can't compromise, you are automatically against anything Democrats propose, even if the idea was originally a Republican idea.

In the news today, President Obama said the sunrises in the East....Teabaggers immediately denounced that statement as a liberal communist socialist conspiracy. Ted Cruz stated emphatically the sun rises in the South and he will bring down the gov't until we recognize that fact. The Sun rising in the East is a train wreck.

There is only one. Since the "hub" already links to the IRS to verify income eligibility. The only change is that the HHS Secretary write a letter explaining what her department is already doing.
So you DON'T know the only two requests made by Republicans to avoid the shutdown?

Here they are:
1. Congress abide by the same law as everyone else.
2. Individuals be treated the same as corporations.

You DID know this, right?

And that Democrats refused to talk about these two requests which led them to shutdown the government before doing so?

SEPTEMBER 8, 2013 · 8:13 PM &#8595;
The unsustainable cost of Obamacare in Illinois.
The state of Illinois would like to thank the other 49 states for their massive, forcibly redistributed financial contribution towards the anticipated cost to cover Illinois’ projected Obamacare implementation and first year operating costs (January 1, 2012-December 31, 2014) of $135 million. Thus far…

$115 million has been received for the Illinois Obamacare exchange “Marketing, Outreach and Information Technology”, of which:

$28 million went to 44 “community groups” in Illinois that will be conducting “outreach” providing “education” and facilitating enrollment in the Illinois Obamacare Exchange through the IPA – In Person Assister – program.

$35 million went to PR firm Fleishman Hillard to market and promote the Illinois Obamacare Exchange. The firm, along with several partners, will lead a massive multimedia outreach and advertising campaign to promote enrollment in the Illinois Obamacare Exchange.

$66.5 million went to a CANADIAN firm known as CGI Technologies and Solutions who will be responsible for setting up and maintaining the Illinois Obamacare Exchange which will also interface with Illinois’ eligibility system for Medicaid. Because you know, we’re adding an estimated 700,000 people onto our already bankrupt Illinois Medicaid program.

This Medicaid expansion will cost the taxpayers of Illinois:

$179,758,409 (that we do not have) in 2017
$227,311,277 (that we do not have) in 2018
$278,731,610 (that we do not have) in 2019
$417,523,899 (that we do not have) in 2020

Whether you use the Kaiser Family Foundation estimates, the Cato Institute estimates or the Congressional Budget Office. The expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare will put a significant new burden on the taxpayer. This is because Obamacare promises 100% matching federal Medicaid dollars for years 2014 through 2016 and 90% for years 2020 onward for states that elect to expand their Medicaid rolls. Even President Obama’s Medicare Actuary Charles Blahous doubts that promise. Most especially since the President’s own submitted budgets, as well as the bipartisan Simpson–Bowles Commission, and the budget resolution passed by the House of Representatives in 2012 already call for trimming Medicaid spending by a minimum of $100 billion.

More to come
Whatever
