Rick Scott opposed the Medicaid expansion leaving many in that situation; however, if a person who would have otherwise qualified for Medicaid and cannot because of this, that person will not have to pay a penalty. It stands to reason that if a person cannot qualify for subsidies then they can't afford $500 or more in premiums. Thus we will continue to have those people uninsured. Where's the win in this?
There should have been public option to buy into Medicare for all, or have a single payer system. It is my hope that it will evolve into that eventually. It's the only way it can work.

Don't get me wrong, I'm clinging to that silver lining and singing my heart out on this lifeboat. My comment was just an observation about humankind as a whole seemingly losing all perspective and any measure of common sense. But my hope lies in that silver lining.

Frankly, I'm happy the focus has finally turned to helping the poor and individual compassion - and differentiating that from feeding an already oversized and indifferent federal government. Our priorities could have been reevaluated when the economy bottomed out six years ago. But Obama put himself first and Obamacare as a ruse for bigger government. It's been done before by other failed leaders who put themselves first to manipulate and control the people under the guise of compassion. We never learn.

Sissy Chrissy Hayes Whining Again...

MSNBC's Chris Hayes is tired of conservatives snarking about global warming every time it gets cold.

During his show Thursday evening, Hayes complained of the "strange bizarre underworld of climate trolls" that came to life when Matt Drudge ironically linked an article on the Drudge Report about cold weather.

"Of course, no one ever said that climate change meant it wouldn't ever be cold," Hayes said defensively, calling the annual tradition "willful stupidity" of conservatives "who delight being on the wrong side of history."

Hayes admitted, however, that Drudge had been successful in creating a culture of global warming skepticism.

"I mean, Drudge has been incredibly powerful, I think, in this," Hayes said. "Drudge has a thing about climate hoaxism and he has been leading the charge."

Hayes mused that conservative media outlets like Fox News and pundits like Rush Limbaugh actually enjoyed making fun of global warming believers, which made it harder for liberal news outlets to cover the issue in a responsible way.

"It is sexier and more fun to mock and to say,'Oh, look at this!' than to be like,'We are so screwed, America!' " he said. "I don't want to start the show that way."

Hayes also expressed frustration at conservatives for mocking global warming scientists after their ship froze in the ice in Antarctica.

"The right wing had a field day, pointing and laughing at the global warming believers, who just to be clear, are only a group of scientists risking their lives for no monetary gain and little glory in order to help save the planet," he said defensively.

Wrong again Carol, most people were behind Bush in the aftermath of 9/11 but we began to turn against him when revelations of his duplicity started to surface. We found out that he had been warned about the imminent attacks and did nothing to prevent them. We found out that his rational for waging war on Iraq was based on lies and fabrications. We discovered that his appointees to important government positions like FEMA director were made not by expertise in the field but by political connections.
As for the direction this country should be headed in, I certainly don't want it going where the GOP seems to want it to head; a corporate plutocracy with a right wing theocratic tilt.
And yes, in some ways I and other liberals are disappointed in the President. We were hoping for someone more progressive.
In so called inconsistencies in his past only exist in hate warped right wing minds.
Of course he had been warned. Clinton had received the same "warnings" which were nothing more than the same usual threats long before 9/11 and Bush taking office.

Unfortunately, they didn't leave the place, time and date on their calling cards.

The GOP was not leading us toward a corporate plutocracy anymore than Obama is doing that by being the CEO of GM and bailing out Wall Street and banks too big to fail.

Both sides - especially Republicans because we expect more from them - dropped the ball in not heeding the warnings about the impending housing crisis and keeping a better check and oversight on corporate abuses.

But that was a lesson easily learned and easily corrected. It's going to take decades to undo the damage that's been done in the past five years.

Extract on article claim that the ACA was “rammed through” Congress without deliberation or debate, part of a pattern of Obama failing to negotiate with Congress. Well, I knew that was a lie, and I said so to Tyler and host Karen Finney. In fact, the ACA was the result of more than a year of congressional committee hearings in which progressive ideas like single payer or a public option were jettisoned, and hundreds of GOP amendments to the law were accepted, in exchange for zero Republican votes. Sen. Max Baucus, in particular, drove an eight-month bipartisan process via the Senate Finance Committee in which he and ranking Republican Chuck Grassley held dozens of hearings, released joint “policy option” papers and finally presided over 31 meetings lasting 60 hours with the so-called “Gang of Six”– Baucus and Grassley plus Kent Conrad, D-N.D., Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., and Mike Enzi, R-Wyo.— to try to hammer out a compromise that would attract GOP support.
and Obama refused any compromise whatsoever...

1 In the beginning God created heaven and earth.

2 Now the earth was a formless void, there was darkness over the deep, with a divine wind sweeping over the waters.

3 God said,'Let there be light,' and there was light.

4 God saw that light was good, and God divided light from darkness.

5 God called light 'day', and darkness he called 'night'. Evening came and morning came: the first day.

6 God said,'Let there be a vault through the middle of the waters to divide the waters in two.' And so it was.

7 God made the vault, and it divided the waters under the vault from the waters above the vault.

8 God called the vault 'heaven'. Evening came and morning came: the second day.

9 God said,'Let the waters under heaven come together into a single mass, and let dry land appear.' And so it was.

10 God called the dry land 'earth' and the mass of waters 'seas', and God saw that it was good.

11 God said,'Let the earth produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants, and fruit trees on earth, bearing fruit with their seed inside, each corresponding to its own species.' And so it was.

12 The earth produced vegetation: the various kinds of seed-bearing plants and the fruit trees with seed inside, each corresponding to its own species. God saw that it was good.

13 Evening came and morning came: the third day.

14 God said,'Let there be lights in the vault of heaven to divide day from night, and let them indicate festivals, days and years.

15 Let them be lights in the vault of heaven to shine on the earth.' And so it was.

16 God made the two great lights: the greater light to govern the day, the smaller light to govern the night, and the stars.

17 God set them in the vault of heaven to shine on the earth,

18 to govern the day and the night and to divide light from darkness. God saw that it was good.

19 Evening came and morning came: the fourth day.

20 God said,'Let the waters be alive with a swarm of living creatures, and let birds wing their way above the earth across the vault of heaven.' And so it was.

21 God created great sea-monsters and all the creatures that glide and teem in the waters in their own species, and winged birds in their own species. God saw that it was good.

22 God blessed them, saying,'Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the waters of the seas; and let the birds multiply on land.'

23 Evening came and morning came: the fifth day.

24 God said,'Let the earth produce every kind of living creature in its own species: cattle, creeping things and wild animals of all kinds.' And so it was.

25 God made wild animals in their own species, and cattle in theirs, and every creature that crawls along the earth in its own species. God saw that it was good.

26 God said,'Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.'

""Big government gets bigger"

By Jon Ward-The Washington Times Sunday, October 19, 2008

BIG GOVERNMENT SERIES: First of three parts

George W. Bush rode into Washington almost eight years ago astride the horse of smaller government. He will leave it this winter having overseen the biggest federal budget expansion since Franklin Delano Roosevelt seven decades ago.

Not since World War II, when the nation mobilized to fight a global war against fascism and recover from the Great Depression, has government spending played as large a role in the economy as it does today.

This time, it is a rapid mobilization against another global enemy — Islamist terrorism — that lies behind much of the growth. But rising spending on discretionary domestic programs has also played its part.

“We have now presided over the largest increase in the size of government since the Great Society,” said Sen. John McCain, the Republican candidate vying to replace Mr. Bush in the White House, during the first presidential debate.

That, in fact, was an understatement. No president since FDR — who offered a New Deal to pull the nation out of the Great Depression and then fought World War II — has presided over as rapid a growth in government when measured as a percentage of the total economy.

<quoted text>Carol the fact is that Social Security isn't going bankrupt, nor is bankruptcy really possible as the system is currently set up.
Here's the source of the confusion: Historically, Social Security has collected more than it paid out. The extra money built up in a trust fund that collects interest. But due to demographic and economic changes (more on that in a minute), it's expected that insurance payments will begin to exceed income in 2021. Around 2033, the fund will run out.
But even then, the revenue Social Security collects each year would still be enough to pay out about three-quarters of scheduled benefits as far as the eye can see.
Even cutting benefits can be avoided by raising or even eliminating the cap on income subject to the Social Security tax, something that the GOP isn't likely to get behind.
there is no trust fund...
