Hang on, you are claiming you have the best system in the world but it is only treating the 4%'ers and old people. So go figure, this is what you are defending that you want to KEEP when ACA offers a far better solution for all. It's no good having the highest paid doctors in the world only doing breast enlargements when they could be treating cancer. That's what you are defending and the highest insurance premiums & the highest medicine costs. What is wrong with this picture!
Cancer is being cured in other countries--and yet the United States only viable treatments are radiation and chemotherapy. Chemotherapy drugs are the most toxic substances ever put deliberately into the human body. They are known poisons, they are designed poisons. And radiation, hey let's do both at the same time. Stupid fools.

DEMOCRATS are cutting money for SCHOOLS! They are HURTING our CHILDREN! It's not for "the kids"! IT'S FOR SOCIALISM...

"MERIDEN — School Superintendent Mark D. Benigni told Congress last week that the Affordable Care Act could lead to program and staff cuts if it is not changed.

Benigni testified Thursday for the 41-member U.S. House of Representatives Education and Workforce Committee.

“At a time when student needs are increasing, budgets are shrinking and state and federal mandates escalating, we cannot effectively sustain these significant health care expenses,” Benigni told the panel.“This will cause us to cut staff, reduce programs, minimize current healthcare plans, cut employee hours, and consider outsourcing current services. It will be our students who lose out.”

Yep. They have been lying out of desperation from day one in an attempt to get Obama out of "their" White House. No lie too big for a Republican.

Radel, R-Fort Myers, pleaded guilty Wednesday to possession of cocaine after he allegedly bought the drug from an undercover officer. In D.C. that’s a misdemeanor with a maximum of 180 days in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.
With a misdemeanor conviction he has a chance of holding onto his seat.
A D.C. judge sentenced Radel to one year of supervised probation, after which the court could dismiss the case without a conviction. D.C. defense attorney Bruce M. Cooper said all first-time drug offenders have that option.
It would be a third-degree felony in Florida, punishable by up to five years in prison and/or $5,000.
While he might have been able to get a probationary sentence in Florida, he would have been confined to the state, probably with a leg bracelet, paid a big fine and had a felony record.
There would be no way that the Congressman who voted for drug tests for anyone getting Food Stamps could have held on to office.

He purchased 2.5 grams and had another gram at his apartment, it was said by one of the informants that he had been a regular customer.

Radel had entertainment/journalism background.

I'll be surprised if he survives the 2014 (R) primary, if he doesn't resign first.

Obama wasn't a war hawk and draft booster like Romney was. According to Mitt it was okay for others to be drafted and sent into harm's way but not him. That's called hypocrisy.

In the years after Jesse Webster dropped out of school in ninth grade to help his mother pay the bills in the south side of Chicago, he became involved in a cocaine deal that was aborted before drugs ever changed hands. After hearing he was wanted for questioning, he turned himself in, and was convicted of possession, conspiracy, and filing false tax returns, solely on the basis of testimony by his co-defendants. He declined to become an informant in exchange for a plea deal, worried that it would put his family members at risk.

CREDIT: ACLU

While his co-defendants received less than five years each for cooperating with the government, Webster, who had no criminal record, was sentenced to life without parole by a judge who said the punishment was too high, but whose hands were tied by a mandatory minimum sentence. Webster has since completed his GED, taught himself skills, and counseled other inmates. But no matter what he does, life without parole means no chance to ever see life outside of prison.

Webster and Jackson are not anomalies. Some 3,278 people are serving life sentences with no hope for parole for non-violent offenses, mostly drugs, according to a new report by the American Civil Liberties Union. Those serving life without parole have been handed these sentences for drug offenses as minimal as possession of a crack pipe, a trace amount of cocaine in clothes pockets that invisible to the naked eye, and large quantities of marijuana. Other nonviolent offenses responsible for LWOP punishment include possession of stolen wrenches, stealing tools from the back of a truck, and shoplifting a computer from a Walmart.

Life without parole (LWOP) is the harshest U.S. sentence short of execution. This summer, the European Court of Human Rights ruled the punishment inhuman and degrading. It means a prisoner receives no reward for rehabilitation; never has a chance of seeing life outside of prison walls. The ACLU called it a “living death.”

7.1 and 11.4 are good if you are a Democrat...

"For Medicaid, the total lost to improper payments was nearly $20 billion, and more than $13 billion for Medicare Advantage, according to paymentaccuracy.gov .

Here's another way to look at those figures: Medicare got it wrong on 8.5 percent of its total payments of nearly $350 billion in 2012. For Medicaid and Medicare Advantage, the error rate percentages were 7.1 percent and 11.4 percent, respectively."

BOCA RATON — Not only can you buy the latest handmade Prada bag or Coach belt at this Boca mall, but soon you can put yourself in the driver's seat of a hot, electric Tesla sports car for a starting price of $63,000
The tony California based automaker wants to open a showroom at the upscale Town Center at Boca Raton, carving out a prime spot for itself and skirting the prohibition against displaying cars outside that has kept traditional car dealers out of Boca.
Hope they all get fire insurance:

when you are a Democrat 22 is not so bad!

US Treasury...

"It's bad enough that the federal government's three biggest health care programs have between them a 9 percent average for improper payments.

It's even worse at the Department of Treasury, which 22 percent of the time sends Earned Income Tax Credits to undeserving people, for a total of $12.6 billion last year."
