Another intelligence official, who asked for anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter, said allies spy on each other all the time. Pointing to France’s angry reaction to this week’s reports, he said he wished he knew the French word for chutzpah -- a Yiddish word that means nerve or audacity.

European anger at reports that the U.S. has conducted surveillance of allies’ telephone calls and e-mails glosses over a basic truth, former intelligence officials say: everyone does it.
“All governments collect information on nearly all governments,” said John McLaughlin, a former acting director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, said in a phone interview.“The posture of most governments is,‘We want to collect as much info as we can, so we can be as fluent as we can when we make decisions.’ It’s just what governments do.”

Flacktard usus this as an excuse so as to make him seem like a caring person because people are not hurting because of the high cost of health insurance.

Flacktard knows that going to the ER is not healthcare. Healthcare is regular check up & regular monitoring of a persons over all well being by a family doctor.

The truth is Flacktard would run over 5 year old kids if it might save him a buck in taxes.

Do you think this president and this administration is looking out for us?
Do you deny your party's culpability in contributing to the economic crisis and a lack of leadership since the economic crisis?
It would help to know exactly where you stand and your perspective.

President Obama lied to us.
It wasn’t a white lie. It wasn’t a fib. It wasn’t a half truth. It was a bold-faced lie.
“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise,” President Obama told the American Medical Association in 2009.“If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”
That statement turned out to be a lie. Period.
On Thursday I asked my Facebook community if they had faced hardships as a result of ObamaCare.
The response was overwhelming. I received nearly 1,000 replies – from small business owners, nurses, doctors, electricians, stay-at-home moms, and military personnel. Every single person said they had been adversely affected by President Obama’s signature legislation.
President Obama also promised us that we would be able to keep our doctor. Another lie.
So let’s break down the president’s lies.
Thursday he told an audience in Largo, Maryland that the Affordable Care Act had not hurt jobs.
“There's no widespread evidence that the Affordable Care Act is hurting jobs,” he said.
Investor’s Business Daily reports that as a direct result of ObamaCare, more than 300 companies have either eliminated jobs or reduced full time jobs to part time jobs. Hospitals across the country are firing staff and reducing work hours.
Janet Blanck owns Country Blossom Florist, a small shop in Gilbert, Ariz. She tells me that as a result of ObamaCare she’s had to lay off three employees.
At one time, she employed eight people. Those who were not let go now work part-time because of rising insurance costs.
“Obama is killing us,” she told me.“It breaks my heart to have to do this. I have to protect what I have built and this is the only way that I know of to get around this law and still stay in business.”
President Obama also promised us that we would be able to keep our doctor. Another lie.
Several hundred of you, like Joel Keefauver, wrote to tell me that your doctors were either shuttering their practices or shedding patients.
“Under the forthcoming Affordable Care Act and new healthcare regulations, I will no longer be able to provide the quality of healthcare you have come to expect and that I believe is proper,” the doctor wrote in a letter to Keefauver.“The increased cost imposed by complying with these new laws, along with decreasing reimbursements, creates a financial burden that is unsustainable for my solo practice.”
DiDi Henry’s elderly mother recently moved from Alabama to Louisiana. She has been unable to find a doctor willing to take Medicare patients.
“Several doctors told her that they just aren’t taking Medicare patients because of ObamaCare,” she told me.
The president also told us ObamaCare would make health insurance affordable? Another whopper.
Business owner Sheila Frey tells me her insurance rates have increased by 46 percent. Her small family-run company is paying $2,000 a month for coverage.

Says the guy who thinks the mentally unstable Allan Grayson is the best thing since gasoline and four wheels and Dr. Ben Carson is some kind of gimmick.
Birds of a feather...
You really blew it.
Really Carol? He's mentally unbalanced because he has the courage to say things that others just hide inside their thought bubbles? His resume is every bit as impressive as Benjamin Carson's .
Grayson worked his way through Harvard College as a janitor and nightwatchman, and graduated with a Bachelors of Arts summa cum laude degree in economics in 1978. After working two years as an economist, he returned to Harvard for graduate studies. In 1983, he earned a Juris Doctor magna cum laude from Harvard Law School and a Masters of Public Policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government. Additionally, he completed the course work and passed the general exams for a PhD in government. While in college Grayson was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society.
Grayson wrote his masters thesis on gerontology and in 1986, he helped found the non-profit Alliance for Aging Research in Washington, D.C., and served as an officer of the organization for more than twenty years.
Grayson worked as a law clerk at the Colorado Supreme Court in 1983, and at the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals from 1984 to 1985, where he worked with two judges who later joined the U.S. Supreme Court: Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia. He was an associate at the Washington, D.C. firm of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson for five years, where he specialized in contract law.
In 1991 he founded the law firm Grayson & Kubli, which concentrated on government contract law. He was a lecturer at the George Washington University government contracts program and a frequent speaker on the topic. In the 2000s, he worked as a plaintiffs' attorney specializing in whistleblower fraud cases aimed at Iraq war contractors. One contractor, Custer Battles, employed individuals who were found guilty of making fraudulent statements and submitting fraudulent invoices on two contracts the company had with the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq. On behalf of his clients, Grayson filed suit under the False Claims Act and its qui tam provisions. The jury verdict was more than $13 million, which was upheld on appeal in April 2009. The case remains the only successful prosecution of those who profited illegally from the war in Iraq. The Iraq war contractor fraud case brought Grayson his first national attention.
Dr. Carson's statements equating marriage equality with pedophilia and bestiality show him to be a right wing extremist who wants the government to enforce his own narrow views on the rest of the population.

For those who don't qualify for subsidies, it comes from learning how to budget. If a single person making $50,000 a year can't afford $200 a month for health insurance, that person has a serious problem. What's more important (1) a $200 satellite TV bill or (2) health insurance. That is a question people may have to ask themselves. They are free to choose #1. No one is holding a gun to their head.
“I keep playing that over and over in my head: that you can keep your health plan, period,” said Terri Flay, a Manassas, Virginia, woman whose policy is being canceled, referring to Obama’s pledge.“But it isn’t ‘period.’ They put a gun to my head saying that I have to pay more because I need the health-care insurance.”

Health care is going to the doctor? yep--they brainwashed all Americans to believe that. It started in the Clinton administration when all the drugs started flowing. You don't need to go to a doctor if you truly have good health. How many pharmaceuticals are you on Lulu?

In one week we will celebrate the reelection of Obama. That really rocked the moron world. All their "reliable" information sources told them it couldn't happen. At this point idiots like waxman can only whine, they have no leader to tell them what to think, ergo the redundant jibberish he posts here.

Sure Carol, and big insurance have never overruled a doctors decision and denied needed treatment have they? let's take a look at the case of Nataline Sarkisyan. She was diagnosed with leukemia at age 14. After two years of treatment, the cancer went into remission. But in summer 2007 it came back and doctors said Nataline needed a bone-marrow transplant. Her only sibling, 21-year-old Peter, was a match, and he donated his bone marrow the day before Thanksgiving.
But Natalie developed a complication and, because her liver was failing, doctors recommended a transplant, saying she had a 65 percent chance of surviving.
CIGNA denied the transplant, telling doctors in a memo the procedure was "experimental, investigational and unproven services."
CIGNA eventually reversed its decision after public outcry but it was too late as her condition had worsened to the point that she died hours after the surgery. If that young woman had received her surgery in a timely manner then she might very well be alive today.
Let's take the case of Crystal Lee Sutton who was the inspiration for the film Norma Rae. Several years ago, Sutton was diagnosed with meningioma, a type of cancer of the nervous system. While such cancers are typically slow-growing, Sutton's was not -- and she went two months without potentially life-saving medication because her insurance wouldn't cover it initially. Though Sutton eventually received the medication, the cancer had already taken hold. She passed away in a Burlington, N.C. hospice.
Contrary to Dr. Carson's lies the ACA makes these kind of abuses less likely to occur.
Norma Rae had bad genes! Wasn't her 2nd child, the illegitimate one, Forrest Gump.
Even today, 4 years after her death, the Mayo Clinic says drug treatment for meningioma in ineffective.
