Barack Obama, our next President

answer the question, why do you want seniors to die from lack of their life saving drugs?
If Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Boxer would have proposed part D, you would have been raising them on your shoulders.
Deny it.
The ACA is funded, are you seriously that stupid? it will cost taxpayers billions and billions. You need your head examined.
I like the idea of Part D. I don't like that it was not fully funded.

The CBO says you're an assh*le about the ACA not being funded.

Minimum wage.
Anyone who is making minimum wage after a couple of years in the work force isn't worth any more than that, if they are even worth that.
Why should any employer be forced to pay more for the same worthless product?

In the Federal Acquisition Regulations, a government contractor is allowed to charge a certain percentage of the contract cost for management of the contract, and another percentage for overhead. With Obama violating the Constitution and the law governing the FAR, government contractors increase the amount they can bill the government when the minimum wage they are required to pay is forcefully increased.
That's why you don't hear any government contractor scream.

Obama is setting precedent to ignore the Constitution and existing law, and rule by decree and edict.
This will increase the deficit and debt, and we won't get anything more for the increased amount of money the government will spend.
We need to create a more capable workforce. This increases the motivation to remain/become useless in the economy.

This is just another example of the Democrats' Marxist ideology. Take more from people who earn it, and give it to people who don't earn it.

Large oil companies don’t need tax subsidies when oil prices are high, a former CEO of Shell Oil said Thursday.
“In the face of sustained high oil prices it was not an issue—for large companies—of needing the subsidies to entice us into looking for and producing more oil,” John Hofmeister told National Journal Daily.

subsidies.
What subsidies? You still haven't found any proof any subsidy to any American oil company exists.

Read carefully:
If you had to prove a subsidy to farmers existed, you could quickly find legislation authorizing it, and the actual amounts paid to recipients. For some reason, you can't find a shred of proof any subsidy to any American oil company exists.

There is no such thing as a subsidy paid to any American oil company. The only oil company Obama is subsidizing is Petrobras, the national oil company of Brasil.
Dont' forget, moron. You'll be buying gas at the prices Obama's agenda will raise it to for the rest of your life. Live well and prosper, dupe.

Your ignorance grows. Mortgage sellers willing sold mortgages that they knew were likely to fail because they then resold them to investment houses who bundled them into mortgage based securities.

You have a very strange perception of "abuse". If my husband were to go out and have a one night stand, I would not feel "abused" nor question my self-worth. You see, I don't equate sex with love. The two are very different. IMO, men who cheat on their wives use sex to relieve tension. To relax. It has nothing to do with love. "Sex without love is hollow. It's meaningless."
Would I accept it as a regular feature of my marriage? I doubt it but, having never been in that situation, I can't say anything with any certainty. I think Hillary is a very strong woman who knows what is important in her life and no one has the right to judge her. Especially someone like you.

When the working class begins to understand that working is for fools, that's when the republic will begin to collapse. Formerly honest people will begin to cheat as a matter of survival and those who cheated all along won't skip a beat. We are fast approaching it beneath the heavy hand of this primate in the White House.

What President Obama should have said in his State of the Union address:

"I cannot imagine what I was thinking when I pushed Obamacare. I now see it is folly to entrust government, which cannot balance its books and routinely loses track of billions of dollars, with even greater power over health care.

"If something as simple as a website is too much for government to get right, imagine what government will do to complicated medical pricing and insurance plans.

"Foolishly, my plan destroyed many sensible insurance plans -- some offering catastrophic-only coverage for a lower price -- exactly the insurance so many people need.

"I see my fellow Democrat, Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia, seated nearby. I take to heart his comments, which he can safely make now that he's retiring from Congress, about how Obamacare is economically doomed, with few young people signing up but sick old people taking money out. The math doesn't add up.

"Now that I think about it, it would be better to end government involvement in health care altogether and let people shop around for the best free-market plans, including catastrophe-only plans, depending on individual needs. Let's try that. In fact, let's see if I can revise other items in my agenda so they work better for consumers ...

"Minimum wage laws, for example. Although a higher minimum is popular with people from both parties, minimums make no sense. The law cannot make an employee who a company values at $5 an hour become worth $10. Minimum wage laws just increase unemployment by eliminating some jobs. They don't do the poor any favors. Let's repeal them.

Call it by the name Obama said he likes. It's ObamaKare.
Besides, there's nothing affordable about it for anyone who pays for their own health care.
Let's educate you again.
ObamaKare allows insurance companies to cancel policies, then forces the people who actually pay for their own policies to purchase more expensive policies with higher deductables from these same insurance companies that cancelled the policies Obama lied about for 4 years, telling everyone they could keep their policies.
How can you keep a policy the insurance company cancelled?
By the way, this was predicted by the TEA Party before ObamaKare was passed.
I have news, insurance companies have been canceling policies for decades.
If a person pays for their good insurance, i.e. buy as an individual, I guarantee they can buy cheaper in the exchanges.

The ACA had an avenue that allowed insurance companies to offer policies as they were when the bill passed. It is insurance companies that cancelled them, not the ACA.

As a person who has their benefits & salary subsidized by the taxpayers, you are not in a position to educate anyone on what it is like to buy a policy as an individual.
