Barack Obama, our next President

even those with insurance generally go straight to the emergency room if they have a cut requiring stitches...because doctors haven't provided that treatment in their offices for years...and cuts often occur outside office hours

What is better for the economy that 1,000 people have money to buy a car or that 2 people have money to buy a car?
Here's what you don't seem to understand, those 2 people hire 1000 people to do various jobs, thus allowing those 1000 people to buy cars. More people than just the rich buy cars. I don't understand why you loony left wingers have such a hatred for the rich (other than you've been told to hate them). Take the money you make from the rich folks and get rich if you so choose.

The only reason for insurance of any type is to protect people against losses too large to sustain....not to pay every bill...

If everyone is poor, how does that help anyone else?
I can accept the fact that SOME wealthy people are crooks.

Its a ethics problem that will not be solved. It's been around since man began writing on cave walls.

No matter which end of the social, economical, and Political spectrum you look at you will find crooks...

Barack Obama knows that the Democratic Party and progressive Americans don't really care how he gets there, they just want more government control.

If the President has to deceive to do that, so be it. I have studied the man and my analysis of him has been accurate and fair. I have never demonized the President, insulted him, or tried to marginalize him.

He is a committed left-wing man who believes the USA would be a far better place if only we would all listen to him. And he'll say pretty much anything to make his progressive vision come true." - Bill O'Reilly

Do you pay more on your auto and home policies to have zero deductibles?

Do you really know what your insurance costs? Most employers do not publish that information.

King George III was the power elite and the ruling class. Dem and others would have defended him.

Stalin and Mao were also the ruling class and the power elite - which dem and others would defend.

King George pretended to be fair - what with his Parliament and all.

Stalin and Mao forced people to be fair with severe consequences.

It's hard to determine which of the two power elites and ruling classes Obama fits into.

Dem, can you help me out? You would know.

You hear that Bill Gross and Warren Buffett are willing to pay higher taxes, but do you ever hear about them actually overpaying their taxes? Do they ever voluntarily write the US Treasury a check for a million or so? Or do they make their statements about paying more just to satisfy the tax and spend Democrats and in these politicized IRS days get on the do not audit list?
It’s also interesting to note that while Warren Buffett feels strongly about raising taxes on “the rich,” he has done a masterful job of avoiding them himself. Past taxes on dividends ranged as high as 91%, but Berkshire Hathaway has never paid a dividend, so Buffett has never paid a dime in dividend taxes on his own multi-billion-dollar holdings.

And he has sold few shares, so he has avoided paying capital gains, as well.

He won’t be selling those shares and paying taxes on them down the road, either. He has pledged most of his fortune to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. That’s certainly a worthy thing to do.

However, his contribution came with a single string attached. The donation is contingent on charitable contributions remaining tax deductible.

In short, when it comes to taxes, you’d be well advised to do what Buffett does. And pay no attention to what he says.

Buffett made many wonderful deals (for himself) in the past when small mom-and-pop companies had to sell in order to pay the estate taxes. So of course Buffett wants higher tax rates – he doesn’t pay them. And his estate won’t pay them, either.

It is in Warren’s self-serving best interest to plead for higher tax rates – it gives him an advantage.

Poll: More Americans Want To Keep Or Expand Obamacare Than Repeal It

The Kaiser Family Foundation found that 47 percent of Americans want to expand (22 percent) or keep the law (25 percent). Conversely, 37 percent said they wanted to either repeal the law and replace it with some Republican alternative (13 percent) or repeal it without replacing it (24 percent).

That's despite the fact that more Americans have an unfavorable view of the law (44 percent) than a favorable view (38 percent), according to Kaiser.
