You can beat this like the Benghazi crap and still come up empty. There is NO Alternative to national health when you have an aging population increasing all the time, with less babies following them, along with all the 20 somethings with no insurance and no where near the revenue TO PAY FOR IT ALL.
This was the problem no government had the balls to handle for the past 20 years yet they all knew it was coming. Clinton tried and failed but Obama finally made a step in the right direction even with a conservative BS amendments designed to make it fail. Obama will go down in history like Luther King, overcoming bigots and ignorance to bring America into line with the rest of the world in terms of health care. Up until this point, insurance and health care was a scam. There is no way you can twist facts or figures to try and defend the status quo. The USA spends one of the highest percentages of GDP on health yet ranks way down in outcomes. What does that tell you, someone is skimming somewhere and it needs the cleaners put through it. Market forces my azz, there has always been collusion between health providers and insurers. Like the stock market debacle in 08 the sheriff needs to get back into town, Health care goes a long way in bringing all those cowboys back into line.
so, how much do you think a physician should earn???....and how will you "bring them into line"???...

And yes, why was Zimmerman's head being pounded ( According to who? how do we know he didn't hit his head when to fell?)?? Was it because he stalked a teenager who stood his ground?

None of the above.
1. 2008 you nominated a cranky and incompetent boob as your candidate,(I'm suspending my campaign...oh wait...I'm still fundraising)(bomb, bomb, bomb Iraaaan) and an even bigger imbecile as VP.
2. 2012 you nominated an out of touch elitist following a primary full of clowns.
3. Your Party turns off a large segment of the voting public (women, minorities, youth)
I'm sure you'll fire back with some condescending remarks about that voting block, but they have an equal right to vote their preference.
If you don't believe me, there's a 200 page autopsy of the failed Romney campaign commissioned by the GOP.
http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-03-...
Try and imagine the most radical rightwing conservative you can muster who only served in the U.S. Senate for two years with no real world experience in a leadership capacity and little, if any, contributions as a politician who had connections with fringe rightwing zealots and organizations and who felt it was his mission to single-handedly change this nation into a staunch rightwing country after going about the business of pushing a signature piece of legislation to do so during an economic crisis of which the majority were against and which excluded any input from Democrats but yet still passed on a strictly partisan Republican vote.

Then try and imagine this president demonizing Democrats at every opportunity and blaming them for not falling in line and simply going along with his personal vision.

If you can imagine that even for a split second, then you know what it's like to be a conservatives over the past five years.

In this real world scenario - only with the shoe on the other foot - you can imagine Democrats would be a little vocal too. Rightfully so. The difference is so would a lot of Republicans.

We still have three branches of power and one party was never meant to monopolize the system for party power against the will of the people for political gain.

Imagine this same radical rightwing president looking the other way in an IRS scandal which literally interrogated liberal individuals and organizations after denying them the same tax exemptions as conservative ones.

It's a lot to imagine, I know. But at least you know what it's like being in our shoes.

More bad news for Vallerie Jarrett and Obama.
Putin said in his New Year message to the Russian people heís going to ďannihilate the Islamist terroristsĒ this year. He was speaking globally.

Letís review some recent US history.
Obama surrendered to the Islamist terrorists, and is now assisting their invasions and attempts to take over muslim countries. Today, right now, as we speak, the Armed Forces of the United States are training Al Qaeda terrorists from around the Arab world on a US military base in Jordan, arming them, then sending them into Syria to help the Suni Islamist invasion. No doubt the Syrians have captured a few of them by now, to be used when the time is right for their propaganda purposes.
What will happen when Syria decides to bomb that US military base in Jordan training Al Qaeda terrorists to smithereens?
Some more recent US history.
The ignorant buffoons running the White House stumbled into a trap in Syria set by Putin a goddam blind person could see. The end result was the US lost every bit of credibility in the Middle East, and has absolutely nothing to do with anything that happens there now. Putin said heís going to annihilate the Islamists terrorists. That means, because the White House is part of the Islamist terrorist network, and they are the most ignorant government in the entire world, itís a no-brainer those clowns will stumble into another trap a blind person can see.

Putin is looking to make a very clear statement to the world that Russia is the most significant enemy of Islamist imperialism today. The reality of that statement is, that makes the White House that is obviously part of the Islamist terrorist network the enemy in the westís resistance against Islamist imperialism. It would be just like these ignorant clowns running the White House today to stumble into a trap that will show the US and Al Qaeda huddled together for the world to see. When that happens, Putin will show the world that Russia is serious about annihilating the Islamist threat to the world.
You people propping up Obama are the most ignorant people in the world today.
When Putin makes him move, donít be surprised if Americans donít support your anti-American, anti-Constitution, racist, bigoted, Marxist communist, Islamist, treasonous pathological lying fraud Obama. Americans are still fighting the war the Arab Islamists started. Itís only Obama and the Democrats that have surrendered to Al Qaeda and joined them. Americans are still on the side of the United States.

Disapproval of the president has fallen from 54%-49%. President Obamaís approval numbers shift wildly based on the tone of the media coverage that he is receiving, but mediaís negativity was hiding a convergence of positive things.
Now that the ACA website is repaired, and millions of Americans are signing up, the mediaís endless drumbeat of negativity has temporarily stopped. Without the Republican fueled Obama bashing from the corporate media, the presidentís approval rating has gone up, and his disapproval rating has gone down.
Republicans and the media have consistently failed to understand, and in many cases actively worked to undermine, the fact that President Obama remains basically popular. For the sixth year in a row, the president was named the most admired man in the world. For as much as Republicans try to project their hatred and contempt for this president on to the nation, the rest of the country has never shared their feelings.

The average Democrat is too dumb to even know how to register to vote without govt help, of course they will go back to liking Obama when Jon Stewart tells them to.

Only literally braindead morons would believe Obama had more death threats than Bush just because the media repeated that lie over and over when a movie was actually made about killing Bush and distributed.

There is still a wide margin of difference in all primary polls including CNN (41%/56%), ABC News/Washington Post (43%/55%), Associated Press (42%/58%), NBC News/Wall Street Journal (43%/54%) and Quinnipiac (38%/57%).

The new year has just begun. More surprises await.

According to the Constitution, because he was a US citizen (unlike the president), the correct procedure would have been to get a grand jury indictment, and then try him in absentia if he chose to not appear to defend himself, if convicted issue the sentence, and if that sentence is the death penalty, apply it.
This would be new information to people like Obama and these dupes here who've never even read the Constitution.
