To the half of the country that has their taxes paid by the other half, a "single payer" system means the other half will pay.

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

Did Obama lie when he said he was born in Kenya? Or, did Obama lie when he began to claim in 2007 he was born in Hawaii?

We can start here. There's a ton of lies to go through after this.

GOP's New Plan Hikes Taxes On Americans In Blue States

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/gop-tax-plan-...

as if this isn't enough.....

Fact 2: Blue states are net payers, meaning residents pay more in income tax than they get back from the federal government, while red states are net recipients. Only one red state pays more into the system than it gets.

http://reason.com/archives/2011/04/29/the-tru...

but not to worry. the GOP tax 'plan' is dead on arrival.

State Department puts terrorist designation on group that attacked Benghazi
By Joel Gehrke | JANUARY 10, 2014 AT 12:53 PM

.......
Two hours after the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack, U.S. government officials in Washington knew that a group called Ansar al Sharia in Libya had claimed responsibility for killing four Americans in Benghazi. Sixteen months later, the State Department made the terrorist designation official......

The State Department designated multiple groups that go by the name "Ansar al Sharia" as foreign terrorist organization.....
The State Department designated another Ansar al Sharia as an alias of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula just weeks after the terrorist attack in Benghazi.

"AAS -- which is based in Yemen and is a separate entity from Ansar al-Shari'a in Libya -- was established to attract potential followers to shari'a rule in areas under the control of AQAP," the State Department announced on Oct. 4, 2012. "However, AAS is simply AQAP's effort to rebrand itself, with the aim of manipulating people to join AQAP's terrorist cause."

and just for the record, so you can stop embarrassing yourself from spewing your inhaled, and then regurgitating spooges of ignorants-

Al-Qa‘ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) is a Sunni extremist group based in Yemen that has orchestrated numerous high-profile terrorist attacks.

This is misleading. Ukrainians are descended from Slav origins. Russians are descended from Viking origins.
The political influence in Ukraine is more significant. East of the Dnieper River and the entire coast of the Black Sea is aligned with Russia. West of the Dnieper River north and northwest of the Odessa and Mykolaiv Oblasts, the anti Russian influence is dominant. The protests originate from this region of Ukraine, the region closest to Europe.
Justifiably, the people living there fear Russia. In recent history millions were killed by the Soviet government.
This article attempts to mislead you into believing Ukrainians are a majority ethinic group being subjugated by minority Russians. The fact is, the majority of Ukrainians put this govenment in place, knowing it will ally with Russia.

With the so-called "news" networks lying to you, you are left to your own devices to determine what the facts and truth are.

Of all my travels, Ukraine was my favorite country. I have been to Ukraine half a dozen times, and have travelled throughout Ukraine on the trains. Russians view Ukrainians not too differently than New Yorkers view people living in Mississippi. But, that is among them, lilke a sibling rivalry.

It's the Canadian Prime Minister and his conservative minions in Parliament who are in the pocket of Trans Canada who are in favor of the pipeline stupid, the Canadian people themselves aren't totally onboard.
What nitwits like you don't take into account is the nature of tar sands oil. Processing tar sands oil releases pollutants directly linked to asthma, emphysema and birth defects into American communities. Because tar sands oil is a heavy, low-quality form of crude, it requires extensive "upgrading" to be transformed into fuel. Refining tar sands crude creates far more air pollution in American communities that are already burdened with cancer and poor air quality as a result of oil industry activities. Tar sands oil contains, among other toxic metals, 11 times more sulfur and nickel, six times more nitrogen, and five times more lead than conventional crude oil.
Heavy metals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons released in tar sands refining have been linked to pre-natal brain damage. Nitrogen oxides, along with volatile organic compounds released in tar sands refining are the principal causes of smog and ground-level ozone. Exposure to nitrogen oxides is a direct cause of asthma, emphysema and other lung diseases. With plans to triple refining and transportation of tar sands by 2015, there is no question that air pollution and health problems in communities from the Great Lakes to the Gulf Coast will increase.
Tar sands production wastes and contaminates tremendous amounts of water. Every barrel of oil produced requires four barrels of water. In this process, water is pumped into toxic waste reservoirs large enough to be seen from space. The mercury, lead and arsenic in tar sands waste threaten human health, even at small levels of exposure. Already, communities downstream from tar sands mines in Canada report 30 percent more incidents of rare bile duct cancer than those who do not live near the tar sands.
So the XL pipeline will be transporting this caustic and because of the sand particles abrasive material across the country. There will be pipeline failures that will be catastrophic. So just how is this best for the American people dumbass?
The only one whose thinking is shallow is you Carol.

There was no spontaneous demonstration.(Show us any evidence the White House had to support the "spontaneous demonstration" lie.)
Al Qaeda told you they planned and executed the attack. The President of Libya interrogated 50 Al Qaeda and told you Al Qaeda planned and executed the attack. Internal emails in the State Department dated 9/12 told you Al Qaeda attacked us in Benghazi.

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

Read the bio Obama signed permission over to his publisher, which was taken from the bio Obama published in the Harvard Law Review, where Obama said he was born in Kenya for 16 years. The first time Obama claimed to have been born in Hawaii was 2007.

Did Obama lie when he said he was born in Kenya? Or, did Obama lie when he began to claim in 2007 he was born in Hawaii?

We can start here. There's a ton of lies to go through after this.

There are so many lies in Obama's books that his administration didn't even bother to dispute them. They just counted on the main stream media's consistency in overlooking, under-reporting and/or discrediting anyone who make's their chosen one look bad.

Major General Paul D. Eaton criticized former Vice President Dick Cheney for hitting President Barack Obama on foreign policy.

On Monday, Cheney criticized a proposal that called for shrinking the Army to its smallest size in 74 years, saying it would do "long-term damage to our military."

“And I think the whole thing is not driven by any change in world circumstances, it is driven by budget considerations," Cheney said. "[Obama] would much rather spend the money on food stamps than he would on a strong military or support for our troops.”

Cheney failed to note that military families redeemed more than $100 million in food stamps on military bases in 2013.

During a phone interview with SiriusXM Progress, Eaton slammed Cheney for his comments considering his role in Iraq.

"Vice President Cheney is one of the architects of the worst foreign policy disaster of the 21st century," Eaton said. "We're young, but the decision to attack Iraq, and to do so in such an incompetent manner, does not give him a platform to say anything about the foreign policy under execution today."

"Vice President Cheney is who he is. It's unfortunate that he has not followed the guidance and the model of his former boss, President Bush, and gone off quietly to write his memoir," Eaton also said.
