The more he lies,the more he sounds like a Democrat candidate. If he was running on the Democrat ticket he would likely win.

Single payer doesn't work in much less populated countries when it comes to prompt care for chronic or urgent needs. It's not uncommon for people to die before receiving medical attention.
Why would anyone think it would be different in a country of this size?
Seriously. Why?
You're lying Carol; it works very well in countries that have it and no one has to wait for urgent treatment. That's a fabrication that big insurance would like you to believe. How many people have died in this country when insurance carriers have refused payment or treatment was terminated due to some arbitrary lifetime cap?

by the way, not to be picky, but a decimal should always be expressed as 0.30, not as .30

not a typo, but a matter of education....

Get a friggin' grip!!
Obama was the first name that popped into most people's heads because most people don't have a clue who they admire and say the first name that's most predominantly in the news.
Bush came in second even before Bill Clinton. Does that mean anything?
Again, get a friggin' grip. Obama is no longer trusted by the majority and the majority still oppose his signature law just as much now as they did before it passed.
There's NOTHING to admire about any president who lies to the American people about something as important as their health care for personal and political gain!!!
I'm glad you got blamed the other night.
No Carol, you were the one completely wrong about the Great Depression even going so far as to assert that the removal of the gold standard was done by Roosevelt when in fact it was Richard Nixon who did it.

Eric Holder remarks ‘pathetic…Teachers must consider skin color when disciplining bad kids, according to DOJ, next he’ll argue Blacks are being incarcerated solely because of their Skin Color not that they did the crime so now their doing the Time!!
"A routine school disciplinary infraction should land a student in the principal’s office, not in a police precinct," Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement.

Tough school discipline codes like zero-tolerance policies and mandatory suspensions for even minor infractions may have significant costs and glaring inequities.

That was a major message behind new guidelines issued Wednesday by the Obama administration, calling on schools to seek alternatives to harsh penalties like expulsions and suspensions that rob students of classroom time and may be racially biased.

The guidelines emphasize the need for a positive school climate and supports, clear and appropriate expectations and consequences, and equity in discipline policies. They're a response to a growing body of statistics showing both the costs of harsh disciplinary policies and the frequent inequities in how they’re applied, particularly to black and special-education students."

“When carried out in connection with zero-tolerance policies, such practices can erode trust between students and school staff, and undermine efforts to create the positive school climates needed to engage students in a well-rounded and rigorous curriculum,” wrote Education Secretary Arne Duncan in a “dear colleague” letter to school officials.“In fact, research indicates an association between higher suspension rates and lower schoolwide academic achievement and standardized test scores.”

Makes sense to me.

Just more proof that, unlike the Republican claim, the attack on Benghazi was not an "Al-Queda led event". The House Intelligence chair and Fox News are looking dumber and dumber.
Let me simplify this for you
terrorist group= attack on Benghazi
video did not cause of attack

You look foolish trying to obfuscate or is this truly logical to you.

Yeah, sure, Christie was swift and decisive. After nearly four months of denying his administration had anything to do with the bridge study, Christie threw his deputy chief of staff under the bus—but only after the public release of emails sent by her and others in his administration exposed his previous denials as false.
Due to a traffic study at some duhm-bo-rats insistance no doubt.
