"As it started to run out, more was needed but Republicans refused to help the economy"????????
Let me restate that for you:
"As it started to run out, with negligible improvement to the economy, Republicans decided the Obama campaign donors and bundlers had had enough time glutting themselves and voted against refilling the Stimulus trough."
So, going from losing 750,000 jobs a month & an economy shrinking at a rate over 8.3% to 12 months straight of job gains in 2010 & 5 straight quarters of economic growth is nothing?

Republicans couldn't allow this to continue as it would make Obama look good & cost then a shot in 23022. Just ask your buddy Mitch McConnell.

In 2001 when George Bush spoke from the rubble after 9-11, Democrats pitched in & stood with the President.

'After the economic disaster lefty by Bush, what did Republicans do???? Played politics.

PATHETIC. The Republican Party should be ashamed of itself. A pack a whiney, me-first asswipes who voted against this country ever since Obama took office.

The New Jersey Minimum Wage Increase Amendment, Public Question 2, also known as SCR 1, was on the November 5, 2013 ballot in the state of New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. It was approved.
The measure would set minimum wage at $8.25 per hour with annual adjustments for inflation beginning January 1, 2014!!!

Connecticut's minimum wage has been $8.25/hr since 1/1/2010. That's probably why our unemployment rate is consistently higher than the national rate and why we had negative GDP growth last year and have led the nation each of the past two years with the least growth. This is what happens when you have a Liberal Democrat Governor with big Democrat majorities in the State House and Senate. Two years ago they passed and enacted the largest tax hike in state history.

<quoted text>Oh, ah very very sorry (even though leftist phags routinely called GWB a chimp). How's this?

Now that odumbo has dropped to a less than 40% approval rating (as I predicted would happen), leftist phags need to prepare for even worse news: the majority of health insurance cancellations have not even begun to be issued yet. This will occur after the 1st of the year, and I expect odumbo will drop to less than 20% approval rating in the polls at that time.

We will probably remove him from office very shortly thereafter.....:-)
"Remove him from office"?

Are you dreaming?

George Soros own the voting machine maker company, and just as the last election he will choose the outcome!

Obama will run and win again!

How?

He will, as all Democrats do, find ways to usurp the Constitution!

He will make the big butt monkey face chimp called Mitchell Obama to run for him. And as all Democrats do, if you reject her then is because you hate blacks and women.

As much as you may dislike it the fact is money makes the world go round. there is nothing for free. every dollar government gives to anybody has been taken from some one else. It should not be used for fraud, waste, or trivial matters.

I'm not sure, but I've read or heard (on the news)that when signing up the recipient has the option of having the government pay the subsidy directly to the insurer monthly or get a tax credit for the yearly subsidy amount on their next tax return. I doubt if many will opt for the credit. If they can pay the full insurance monthly then one has to wonder why or how they qualified for a subsidy in the first place!
No the law states that the 'credit' goes only to the insurer. But if the policy holder underestimates income to get a bigger subsidy they, not the insurer, has to pay back the difference.

Well Carol, here's some quotes from JFK;
“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.”
&#8213; John F. Kennedy, Profiles in Courage
“The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”
“To those whom much is given, much is expected.”
“If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.”
&#8213; John F. Kennedy, Kennedy's Inaugural address of 1961.
“And is not peace, in the last analysis, basically a matter of human rights -- the right to live out our lives without fear of devastation – the right to breathe air as nature provided it -- the right of future generations to a healthy existence?" (John F. Kennedy, June 10, 1963, American University speech)”
No we haven't drifted away from his policies and we're very much in the same boat.
Kennedy Democrats criticized Eisenhower for being too soft and then the missile crisis gave Kennedy permission to become aggressive (with the media's approval) after a "secret" report about Soviet weapons was leaked. The report turned out to be false with the only difference between that and GWB's WMD's is the media was on JFK's side. We know what happened next when Kennedy then escalated everything with thousands of "advisors" sent to Vietnam.

Peace? Kennedy? is like saying Competent? Obama?

or Peace Prize Obama? The one who brags about how many drone kills he's ordered.

The job losses were Corporate America battening down the hatches before the true commie butthole Obama took charge on 1/20/2001 with Democrat majorities in both the Senate and House.

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell's counterpart, Tom Daschle was a true obstructionist, a me-first asswipe who voted against this country every chance he could, and paid the price with his 2014 election loss.

I'm not even going to vote in 23022.

Christie can't win shit without the Democrats helping him. The only reason he won the election is because the Democrats pulled their slated candidate out of the race in exchange for Christie sabotaging the Republicans.
Christie is a Democrat plant. Buono's campaign had only token funding, and not organized, as if that was the plan.
I do believe you'd vote for Christie. You'd vote for any Democrat plant. It's just like voting for a Democrat.
Now, back to some questions you run away from....
