The problem is reimbursing Obama campaign donors with stimulus money through places like Solyndra that go bankrupt.
It's only a problem for those stupid enough to allow the left to politicize the weather in order to profit and raise taxes.

And the globes climatologists are all in on it too.

Dumbest goddamn argument a person can make on the subject.
And you knocked it out of the park on your first swing, idiot tea bagger.

This is why you Tea Party people are considered to be dupes.

If you are a green company in 2008, who do you support? A Party that hates green energy or the part that pushed green energy.

Then, you dipsticks have a fit when Obama invests in green energy.

Sure Carol, it's a much better idea to have our access to health care controlled by big insurance whose only concern is making profits.
If you'd take that "OMG SOCIALISM!" bone out of your head you'd realize that single payer would be a boon to both individuals and business. Companies wouldn't have to worry about providing coverage for their employees and could funnel that money into expansion and even higher salaries for their workers.
the only time that "insurance companies" control access to medical care is when an individual is stupid enough to join an HMO, which is not insurance at all...

The ACA doesn't provide medical care at no cost to everyone you ignorant piece of crap! Most people have to go out and purchase coverage from the private insurance market.
Having used both the VA and private sector facilities I can say that I've spent less time waiting to be seen at VA facilities and the doctors there spent more time than those in privately run hospitals and their facilities are comparable.
You're an idiot Galt; you always have been and always will be!

They usually forget to mention, all the money being spent to spread the deniers bull sh it , all comes from the Koch brothers protecting their fossil fuel polluting industries.
Fossil fuel good capitalism
Green energy bad capitalism??????

But you best find something that doesn't say "tea party" on its header if you think I'd read it.
98% of the professionals call you, and I paraphrase, misinformed fkn idiots.
Case closed!
That's your problem. You don't read anything. You made the remark about climatologists and tea baggers. I am attempting to keep you from looking like the bigger idiot than you are.

I am really not in the mood this morning to educate you but, for one thing, the Affordable Care Act sets minimum percentages of premium dollars that health plans must spend on health care. If a health care company can't show that it spent say 85% of premium dollars on "medical costs and activities that improve health care quality improvement" then they send refunds directly to policy holders. Some companies have already been forced to refund funds directly to policy holders for overcharging.(Aetna for example)

Just when you think there couldn't possibly be another major controversy that could make us even more vulnerable.

"U.S. to relinquish remaining control over the Internet."

http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/techno...

Some businesses like Verizon are pleased as punch because they stand to make a lot more money. Other corporations complain that con artists already swarm the Internet with phony Web sites.

There's also the risk and the danger dictators and our enemies all over the world will redefine the Internet...and they must be thrilled.

Sounds more like Obama is throwing a bone to appease the NSA naysayers - no matter the unintended consequences. Sure hope not.

A minority got a recall but the majority decided.
You said direct control.
The state legislatures are just smaller scaled Federal legislatures.
Your Republican governor pandered to you dumbass climate deniers. Big deal.
That's the point. They got the recall. The [people] did speak in the end. A direct vote and control in keeping with the governor they wanted.

Carbon tax doesn't have anything to do with fixing anything about the climate. These carbon credits are traded in private auctions among the upper crusty people. Another way of separating you from your money and sending it up to wealthy people. You pay through higher utility bills.

If you had read the article you would know we have nothing against it. It becomes a problem when the government uses it as a vehicle to empower itself.

Never tried to hide who I was and was forced to change names until I registered. After a major power outage last week - happened twice in a row like something blew up - neighbors were even outside trying to figure out what was going on - when I came back on, registered name was gone...poof. So decided to change it since I never liked LoisLane.

Wish someone would steal your name and post crude and crazy posts.

Oh, wait a minute, they don't have to.

For the lefties who love to blame Bush for 9/11....

Newly released documents from the Clinton Library.

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news...

So what were Clinton's "measured and consistent responses" to terrorists attacks before 9/11 again?
