The Democrats will do to our health care system what they did to our education system.

Why would anyone not think this will happen?

We'll be back to bleeding patients and putting leeches on them in no time.
... well, until there isn't enough money to buy leeches.

Oil industry subsidies exist.
Why do you right whiners keep denying this? Are you embarrassed your party defends them?
You are assuming because it says oil subsidies this means the government is giving the oil companies free money. WRONG

What value was there in you listing them if you had NO clue what they are?

This is similar to your pout over farmer subsidies that is basically an insurance that crops will maintain a certain level of value as these 10 crops are then bought by the government for numerous food programs. You want to cut the food going to school lunches? How about Community pantry programs?

You need to follow through on what the money is being used for and who is actually getting it!

Interesting you mentioned "truth".

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

Why did Obama lie about ObamaKare?

Why did Obama lie about being a constitutional lawyer?

In the bio for his book and the bio for the Harvard Law Review, Obama claimed to have been born in Kenya. Now, he claims to have been born in Hawaii.
Was Obama lying when he claimed to have been born in Kenya?

The Republican Rejection of Medicaid Expansion is Depraved
The refusal of Republican states to accept Obamacare's Medicaid expansion surely ranks as one of the most sordid acts in recent American history. The cost to the states is tiny, and the help it would bring to the poor is immense. It's paid for by taxes that residents of these states are going to pay regardless of whether they receive any of the benefits. And yet, merely because it has Obama's name attached to it, they've decided that immiserating millions of poor people is worth it. It's hard to imagine a decision more depraved.
Conservatives hate it when you accuse them of simply not caring about the poor. Sometimes they have a point. This is not one of those times.

A subsidy is a financial benefit.

You can keep denying oil industry subsidies exist & in doing so you just confirm the generally accepted position that you are a total fool.

Nice try on trying to change the subject on why you can't make it on your own without subsidies to agriculture.

Here's the link for you:

http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html

What cases has Obama argued in court? The last time you couldn't answer that question, you couldn't find any docket number or location or case. All you could find was some article in the LA Times that, also, couldn't find any docket number or location or case.

Obama has never even seen the inside of a courtroom as a lawyer.
Disagree?
Location:
Plantiff:
Defendant:
Docket number:
Judge hearing the case:

If Obama ever appeared as a lawyer in any courtroom, this information will be public record.
You can't find it because... Obama has never appeared as a lawyer in any courtroom anywhere ever.

Let us take a look at how well the Obamacare sign up is going-

1.6M Americans have Signed up for so far. Problem: 1.46M of them Have Signed up For Medicaid.

Hmmm, not very well as few are signing up for the insurance.

Sen. Ted Cruz defied critics angry that he eulogized Nelson Mandela and left for South Africa today as part of a 23 member congressional delegation going to honor the former South African president and anti-apartheid hero.
“He endured decades of imprisonment and steadfastly continued his fight for equality. And, when justice prevailed in his battle against apartheid, and Mandela was elected president of his nation, he nobly chose reconciliation instead of retribution — a legacy for which he will be remembered forever,” Cruz, R-Texas, said.
Cruz’s press secretary, Catherine Frazier, also rejected the arguments of those who criticized Cruz for lauding Mandela.
“Mr. Mandela deserves to be remembered and honored for his sacrifices in pursuit of freedom for the oppressed and his historic achievements to that end,” Frazier said.
Rep. Aaron Schock, the Republican congressman who was tapped by Speaker John Boehner to lead the delegation to South Africa, has also been met with social media heat for eulogizing Mandela as “the George Washington of our time.”
In response to the Illinois congressman’s tweet, twitter user Mark Christopher said,“@aaronschock @NelsonMandela George Washington? He was a communist…. Not the devil, but GW?”
Perhaps the staunchest defense of praising Mandela came from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
On Friday, Gingrich wrote a scathing criticism of Mandela’s opponents among his fellow GOP members, and suggested that Tea Party types share Mandela’s values, even his violent resistance against apartheid.
“Some of the people who are most opposed to oppression from Washington attack Mandela when he was opposed to oppression in his own country,” Gingrich wrote.
The former Speaker of the House continued to speak out against Mandela critics, sighting examples of historic American leaders fighting against oppression, sometimes with force.
“As Americans we celebrate the farmers at Lexington and Concord who used force to oppose British tyranny,” Gingrich noted.“We praise George Washington for spending eight years in the field fighting the British Army’s dictatorial assault on our freedom.”
“Patrick Henry said,‘Give me liberty or give me death,’” he added.
Republicans aren’t the only ones being met with criticism for honoring Nelson Mandela.
The White House posted a video to Facebook of the president speaking about the anti-apartheid leader’s passing, and quoted Obama saying,“He no longer belongs to us—he belongs to the ages.” The Facebook post received 4,085 likes, and 700 comments, many of which were critical of the president and his eulogizing of the South African leader.

hey racists! tuff shit! the minority can whine all it wants, but since you're the minority....no one cares. even your own are declaring your ignorance. how's it feel to have someone like Cruz remind you that you're a dumb redneck hick?

the reality that eludes you all....

Republicans in the House have blocked every effort made by the President and Democrats to move jobs related legislation. In the Senate, no jobs bill has been moved and the White House would appear to be on defense rather than on offense with regard to jobs related legislation.

All subsidies are financial benefits.
All financial benefits are not subsidies, you fucking moron. My paycheck is a financial benefit, you idiot.

A subsidy is money granted. That means money has to be given. A government can only give money it has in its possession, dumbass.

Let's go over this again.

Subsidies to American oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist. There is no such thing as a subsidy to any American oil company in the United States.
The only oil company Obama is subsidizing is Petrobras, the national oil company of Brasil.
