So you're safe. The Progressive/Oppressive Party won't be coming after you if and when they succeed in finishing what they've started. Thanks in part to your undying loyalty.
Either you've gone completely batsht crazy__or you've assumed a "new role," either way you are not Carol anymore.

CBO and the ACA....

the ole....if we give the PROLES money for one thing WE the SUPERIOR THINKING gods will GUARANTEE....

that they will buy more Xboxes and Iphones....stuff made in China...

and votes. Did I say votes?

"CBO estimates that, over the next few years, the various
provisions of the ACA that affect federal revenues and
outlays will increase demand for goods and services, on
net. Most important, the expansion of Medicaid coverage
and the provision of exchange subsidies (and the resulting
rise in health insurance coverage) will not only stimulate
greater demand for health care services but also allow
lower-income households that gain subsidized coverage
to increase their spending on other goods and services—
thereby raising overall demand in the economy."

Congress is now trying to ban e-cigarettes - which is essentially vapor - while drinking like fish and many having no problem with smoking marijuana anywhere at anytime. CVS is no longer selling cigarettes or e-cigarettes but their wine and beer shelves are fully stocked as is their junk food section.

Freedoms are eroded gradually. It's a gradual acceptance of PC correctness and progressive oppression. One thing at a time - one personal choice at a time. Until they're gone. Then it's too late.

Leftie hypocrite. Or are you one of those rare enlightened libs who practices what it preaches?

Meaning, you of course don't have borders on your home. Anyone can come into your home and stay for as long as they like--come and go as they please. And if they pop out a kid on your sofa, you automatically add the kids' name to your deed.

WASHINGTON (CNN)-- President Bush on Monday signed into law landmark Medicare reform legislation that includes prescription drug benefits and has sparked a bitter fight between opponents and supporters.

Speaking at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, Bush characterized the measure as "the greatest advance in health care coverage for America's seniors since the founding of Medicare."

Backers say the $400 billion Medicare Prescription Drug Modernization Act will provide much-needed help for the nation's 40 million senior citizens to buy medications; critics say it is a giveaway to drug makers and insurance companies and a prelude to the dismantling of the program.(Interactive: Prescription coverage)
"Our government," Bush said, "is finally bringing prescription drug coverage to the seniors of America."
"With this law, we're giving older Americans better choices and more control over their health care, so they can receive the modern medical care they deserve," he said.
In addition to the prescription drug benefits, the measure provides billions of dollars in subsidies to insurance companies and health maintenance organizations, and takes the first step toward allowing private plans to compete with Medicare.(Interactive: Prescription for change)

It is the largest expansion of Medicare since the program was created in 1965, though most of its provisions won't take effect for several years. The drug benefit, for example, does not take effect until 2006. Before that, seniors will be able to purchase a discount card that could provide a 10 to 25 percent off prescription drugs.

"Our nation has made a promise, a solemn promise, to America's seniors," Bush said. "We have pledged to help our citizens find affordable medical care in the later years of life."
"These reforms are the act of a vibrant and compassionate government," Bush said.

BushCo nearly destroyed the nation hon. All the kings horses and all the kings men got lucky this time and Humpty lived for another day.

As a result of the BushCo back to back to back calamities, the bulk of the nations voters rejected the Republican choice for POTUS in 2008 and again in 2012

The left believes in dependency.

Incompetence and failure is what they excel in, and frankly, what they promote, and yes, legislate. Why should this be a surprise or shock? They will not reward excellence and success anywhere else: in the classroom its equal outcome, in society its redistribute wealth and reward laziness & lethargy.

Failure: This is what is written all over the left, their agendas and initiatives.

We now have a quasi-monarchy on Capital Hill and the struggle going on isn't about what's in the best interests of the country any longer. It's about power and political aspirations above all else and at any cost - and a media who elects them and protects them.

If you can't see the inherent danger in this, you don't know history very well. Especially when you act like you wrote it yourself.

If you have to ask how Obamacare created this job crisis in light of employers cutting back employees' hours to part-time en masse right after this law was passed to avoid the hidden and unknown costs associated with it and the drying up of jobs because employers refused to hire any more workers for the same reason and the very recent CBO report announcing that over 2 million more people are willingly going to leave the full-time workforce just to afford this damn health care law - you don't know much of anything else. Sorry to say.
the latest attempt by the Obama mob to portray ObamaKKKare job losses as a good thing is a desperation move by a crumbling regime.....

really? do you even have windows in your house to look out on the real world?

our economy is not bleeding jobs at an all time record pace like it was when Bush handed the reins to Obama, is it? in fact, after historic job loss we were back to the same number of jobs in under four years. that would actually be historic job growth!

our financial, banking, housing and auto industries are not on their deathbeds as they were when Bush left us this mess. in fact, that was cleaned up in a year...

you have a funny way of ignoring the real world, Lois...

is it fun to lie to yourself and others? you do it constantly....is this a reflection of your morals and your character?
