Now, was that concept just too difficult for our little subsidized brain?
That's the deficit, you blithering idiot.
I should have known a Democrat wouldn't know the difference between the debt and the deficit.

Now we get to touch reality.
If ObamaKare is about health care (which there isn't one word in ObamaKare about health care), and the insurance is provided by private companies, how does ObamaKare generate revenue?

... well?

On a more positive note
SAN ANTONIO — Former President Bill Clinton is returning to the Alamo City next month, this time to present an award to a former mayor and member of his cabinet.
Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States, will award former San Antonio Mayor Henry Cisneros the World Affairs Council's International Citizen Award in the Alamo City on Feb. 26. Clinton also will deliver the keynote speech at the Marriott Rivercenter Hotel luncheon.
“He (Cisneros) is being honored for his visionary thinking and passion for collaboration, which truly elevated San Antonio to a national and international city,” Catherine Nixon, president of the World Affairs Council, said in a news release.
Clinton's last visit to the Alamo City was at a Democrat rally at San Antonio South High School in October 2012 where he was flanked by state Rep. Pete Gallego and the Castro brothers.
Cisneros, the chairman of CityView, a real estate investment firm, was a member of Clinton's cabinet as the secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
The World Affairs Council of San Antonio is a non-profit organization focused on foreign policy and global governing issues.
Keep the women and children off the streets that day.

Face it....it is Israel that is telling Kerry "to get out and they are not negotiating, no deal." Until such time as Israel agrees to abandon the illegal settlements erected on land belonging to the Palestinians there can be no progress. Shame on Israel.
So you are a lying anti-Semite?

Chicago Tribune: Palestinian protesters condemned the latest efforts by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to advance peace talks with Israel, using chants evoking the Arab uprisings and telling him to go home. Hours before Kerry was due to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a raucous crowd of several hundred took to the streets of Ramallah, the West Bank's de facto capital, chanting "Kerry, you coward, there's no place for you in Palestine!"

Or this:

The tension between Israel and the United States intensified this week due to disputes regarding the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and the effort to find a diplomatic compromise with Iran over its nuclear program. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has attacked what he termed the “bad deal” being formulated with Iran, while other ministers have been critical of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s conduct with regard to the Palestinian talks.

So, since the amount gambled in casinos in December 2013 is about the same as the amount gambled in early 2007, now you are claiming that poor people gamble now where they didn't in 2007? Based on what??
Poor people gamble more...

One fact checker source pointed out that discrepancy as well. It's like this president is totally removed even from his own rhetoric. That's pretty bad.
I thought Brit Hume described the SOTU the best. Hume rarely shows any emotion whatsoever and is quite fair in his calm and monotone voice when analyzing this president's administration in the past. But he couldn't stop snickering after the SOTU saying this president was giving a speech about his own presidency.
Hume was apparently amused because the implication was Obama didn't even know he was doing that.
I noticed they referenced a ratio, which is meaningless without referencing the basis for comparison.
Was Obama lying about hourly wage, daily wage, weekly wage, monthly wage, or annual wage?
Annually, on the average, it is very reasonable that there will be a discrepancy because men don't get pregnant.
Monthly there will be a discrepancy, also.
Weekly, there probably isn't any discrepancy, as well as daily or hourly.
What Obama stayed away from was the fact that women of a young age make more than men.

I've lost count. How many lies does this make in Obama's STFU Address?

6 Reasons Conservative Ron Unz Wants to Raise the Minimum Wage to $12 An Hour
The California Republican is sponsoring a 2014 ballot measure for a $12 statewide minimum wage—more than Obama has proposed.
The whole thing is it’s not really a traditional ideological issue. What you have right now is a system of massive welfare spending, over $250 billion a year in social welfare programs going to the working poor. In other words, people have jobs but they cannot survive on their paychecks. And those payments really amount to subsidies to low-wage employers. It’s a classic case of where businesses manage to privatize the benefits of their workers—they get the work—and socialize the costs. They’ve shifted the costs over to taxpayer and the government. And that is not something that free market economists like. It’s a classic problem inany kind of economic system.
So when you’re talking about a much higher minimum wage, which would automatically produce huge cuts in government social welfare spending, that’s the sort of thing that conservatives begin to like.
3. A two-income family would earn $50,000 a year.
4. Spending on welfare could fall by $40 billion.
Walmart, America’s largest low-wage employer, could cover a $12 minimum wage by a one-time price increase of 1.1 percent. The average Walmart shopper would pay an extra $12.50 per year. McDonald's and fast-food places would probabnly have to raise their prices by 8 or 9 percent, something like that. Agricultural products that are American-grown would go up by less than 2 percent on the grocery shelves. And those sorts of price increases are so small that they would be almost unnoticed in most cases by the consumer.
http://www.alternet.org/economy/ron-unz-makes...
One reason working Americans don't want to raise the minimum wage:
People making minimum wage aren't worth it, and we'll have to pay for it because, for companies to maintain their existing profit margin, they have to cut salaries elsewhere.

If you want to make more than minimum wage, make the choices that make you worth more than minimum wage to the economy.

You're a maroon.

Funny that Flack was praising Australias social security system; not knowing that Australia is one of the biggest welfare states. They have single payer universal healthcare paid through taxation. Most other countries do, like Canada. Everyone is covered.
A friends daughter married an Austrialian man, they moved there and had a baby, the government sent them a check for $5000.00!!
Everyone pays taxes in one form or another; property tax, sales tax etc. I just don't see the need for insurance companies to make a profit on healthcare. They should be eliminated.
I was talking about their private social security system. I didn't say anything aboutr their socialist medical programs. I can separate the two,can you?
