Barack Obama, our next President

Obama withdrew all troops in Iraq too soon to impress his base before the 2012 elections.
Obama was warned by Iraqi military and American military not to withdraw all troops from Iraq too soon to impress his base before the 2012 elections.
Obama didn't care about the sacrifices of blood and treasure in Iraq and ignored military advise to impress his base before the 2012 elections.
Obama wanted to win the election at all costs in 2012.
History will not be kind to Obama.

Ever single death and casualty there belongs to Bush and his band of chicken hawks. People like you that show so little real concern for the sacrificed make me sick. You are pretend patriots...When in essence yours is power greed and a total ideolog willing to believe any and everything to the point of fanaticism. You and those like you have regressed to the point of simply slinging shit and hatred with never a thought of right or wrong good or bad. Disgusting cowards that never show any concern for the ones you so willingly sacrificed. Pathetic.

The Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO) oversees the implementation of the provisions related to private health insurance.
http://cms.gov/CCIIO/
Among the IRS' biggest tasks will be to:

*Collect information from employers and insurers: The ACA requires employers to tell the IRS whether an employee has insurance.

At the end of the year, insurers must provide the IRS and policyholders a form verifying coverage status and individuals must include those forms with their federal tax return.

*Figure out who qualifies for subsidies or Medicaid: When a person applies for coverage on an exchange, the information he provides will be cross-checked with income, job and coverage information from the IRS. That cross-check will determine whether someone is eligible for a premium credit, or if he's eligible for Medicaid, which the ACA expanded.

While the IRS is authorized to share income and other data with the exchanges and some federal and state agencies, those third parties may only use that information for determining eligibility for coverage and subsidies, according to the TIGTA report.

*Determine who must pay a penalty: Starting in 2014, individuals must buy qualified health insurance or pay a penalty. Some groups are exempt from the new rule, including those whose income is so low that they're not required to file a tax return.

In 2014, the penalty will be no more than $285 per family or 1% of income, whichever is greater. In 2015, the cap rises to $975 or 2% of income. And by 2016, the penalty would be up to $2,085 per family or 2.5% of income, whichever is greater. The dollar amounts for a single adult would be $95,$325 and then $695 during that same time period.

(Sheesh...$2085 per family sure helps those struggling already.)

The law prohibits the IRS from putting liens or levies on your property to collect the penalty. It may, however, be able to withhold your future refunds if you don't pay.

(In other words, they're fairly impotent to collect penalties.)

*Penalize employers that don't provide affordable coverage: Starting next year, employers with 50 or more employees must provide affordable, qualified coverage to employees. If they don't, they have to pay an "Employer Shared Responsibility payment." The IRS must establish rules and guidance for employers in this regard and collect the penalty from them.

The Supreme Court ruled Obamacare a tax law, so sounds to me like the IRS has a pretty big role - enforce and punish.

<quoted text>December 16,1998 WASHINGTON (CNN)-- From the Oval Office, President Clinton told the nation Wednesday evening why he ordered new military strikes against Iraq and starts war with Iraq.
"Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with NUCLEAR ARMS, poison gas or biological weapons," Clinton said.
Our mission is to attack Iraq's NUCLEAR, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors," said Clinton.

The nut doesn't fall far from the tree. Cruz's father is just plain batty.

“As a matter of fact, one of the things in Obamacare is that for the elderly, every five years you must have end-of-life counseling,” Cruz's father told a crowd at a Lincoln-Day dinner just north of Denver.“Translation: suicide counseling.”

“I believe the most ominous words I’ve ever heard from Barack Hussein Obama was two years in a row at the State of the Union address when he said,‘If Congress does not act, I will act unilaterally,’” said Cruz.“[It’s] no different than that bearded friend, or dictator, that I left back in Cuba.”

Felt compelled to drive home the point everything this president does is about winning.

Not winning for the country...but for himself and his one-party vision.

You were for the War in Iraq so is it safe to say you think War is the solution to all the world's problems?
Of course if you say yes then I stand corrected, it's an excellent survey and my answer is: no.
Well, considering 111 Democrats went along with the War in Iraq and since that war is over and this president has extended two other wars another five years, don't think you can compare getting rid of threats to civilization with big government micromanaging every aspect of our lives.

But I've almost been brought to tears that you don't really think big government is the solution to all of our probems.
