CBO...has some bad news...

that's a gubbymint agency....

says...

and I QUOTE.

"...CBOs estimate that the ACA will reduce aggregate labor
compensation in the economy by about 1 percent over
the 20172024...."

page 132.

and...

I quote... cost the nation 2.5 million jobs...
"...The reduction in CBOs projections of hours worked
represents a decline in the number of full-time-equivalent
workers of about 2.0 million in 2017, rising to about
2.5 million in 2024."
From
Appendix C

"....The baseline budget outlook has worsened slightly since
May 2013, when CBO last published its 10-year projections.
At that time, deficits projected under current law totaled $6.3 trillion for the 20142023 period, or about 3 percent of GDP. Deficits are now projected to be about $1 trillion larger..."

even worse if McDonnell is acquitted, which is likely given the shaky legal basis of the charges.....

Hey Barry, want some cheese with that WHINE?

O'REILLY - Do you think I'm being unfair to you, do you think I've been giving you -

OBAMA [OVERLAP]- Absolutely. Of course you have, Bill. But, I like you anyway, Bill.

O'REILLY [OVERLAP]- Okay, but - give me how I'm unfair.

OBAMA [OVERLAP]- It-it-but - look -

O'REILLY - Give me how I'm unfair. Come on, you can't make that accusation without telling me.

OBAMA - Bill - we've just run through an interview in which you asked about health, uh, health care not working, IRS where-where we, uh, wholly corrupt, Benghazi -

O'REILLY - All right.

OBAMA - Right, so the list of issues that you talk about -

O'REILLY [OVERLAP]- But these are unanswered questions -

OBAMA - Yeah, but-but-but they're defined by you guys in a certain way. But this - look, this is okay. This-this is -

O'REILLY [OVERLAP]- Do you not -

OBAMA - If you want to - if you want to be President of the United States, then you know that you're going to be subject to criticism, and -

O'REILLY - But if it's unfair, I-I want to know if it's unfair. Is it un - criticism is criticism. It's my job to give you a hard time.

OBAMA [OVERLAP]- Here - here - here's what I would say. I think regardless of whether it's fair or not, uh, it has, uh, it has made FOX News very successful.

O'REILLY - But if I'm unfair, I want -

OBAMA [OVERLAP]- Here's what - here's the thing you guys - here's what you guys are gonna have to figure out is what are - what are you gonna do when I'm gone? I'm telling you -

My planned tactic of self defense is to sing at the top of my lungs When We All Get to Heaven or Love Lifted Me. They'd have to shoot me just to shut up. But at least it would be quick and over with.

Same thing in an attempted abduction. They'd have to go ahead and shoot or stab me before I'd get in a car with anyone. It just wouldn't happen - unless it was over my dead body. I figure I'm going to die someday anyway. So it would just happen a little sooner.

But if I had a gun, I'd just shoot them first.

Nothing funny about the strong arm of the government abusing citizens' rights.

Or taking the Fifth to protect someone in power.

Bob Beckel said this was the most egregious scandal because he's worried about the shoe being on the other foot.

He has nothing to worry about because Republicans don't stoop that low.

The FBI investigations are still underway. You do know that, don't you? This president sure doesn't seem to. He's convinced it's all Fox's fault.

The good old days...before Obammy and ObammyCare and the new normal that signals the end of the middle class as he redistributes to his take-take-take followers.

The cry of the progressive politician,we cant go back, it was horrible. Really?

Remember before the ACA, when people the world over came to the USA for much needed health care?

They didnt flock to Cuba, or the UK, or Canada, they came here, because they knew we had a free market, and very capable health care system, the best in the world. They were looking for health care not someone to pay for their care.

The only problem with the old system was the government interference into it. Setting insurance limits and setting costs for their own patients, Medicare and Medicaid. The government was the problem, so they decided to fix it with much more government. They promised to lower cost!

The Obamacare fiasco is just getting started, we have a liar in the White House, and the entire Senate will lie to protect their messiah. This is not going to get better.

Pre-husseincare, 86% of Americans had health insurance that THEY LIKED! Of the remaining 14%, most still had health care insurance of some sort or were voluntarily refusing to buy it.

So what problem were we trying to solve again?

Al Jolson Bio:
Al Jolson was born Asa Yoelson on May 26, 1886, in Srednike, Russia.
His family immigrated to the United States when he was 7 years old.
Frustrated by his cantankerous relationship with his father, a conservative Rabbi, Al and his brother, Harry, changed their last name to "Jolson" and moved to New York City, soon beginning a vaudeville act together.
His stage work was stained by controversy, as Jolson frequently wore blackface on stage. His vaudeville act became known for its use of dark facial makeup and white gloves.
While critics saw Jolson as a racist egomaniac.

lots of homes in your neighborhood have been invaded? you know the chances of that gun killing one of your family members is like 1,000 times greater than actually detering an intruder...

change the culture...

it amazes people that canadians can have guns around without killing each other left and right with them...

if waxworm or forks or whoever the fuck made that post...it really doesn't matter, does it...they could have used facts to counter the many cogent, well thought out facts i presented. he didn't, did he?

i just pointed that out.

why couldn't you counter any of them? in your case, i know for a fact it is because they are far, far, far beyond your level of understanding. you could try to prove me wrong on this, but both you and i know you will just run to save yourself from making an ass out of yourself. don't you? you do know this, don't you....so sad for you...
