It's too expensive because no one is focusing on solutions to lower the costs..
Democrats claim to care about the affordability of health care but ignore the obvious.
They resist school vouchers but claim to care about education.
Why is that? Seems like doublespeak. If so, for what purpose?
as the demand for medical care increases, the price goes up, just like all goods and services.....

so, extra scrutiny should also be given to organizations that have "progress" or "action" or "change" in their titles, or are funded by George Soros......
They were.

"Internal Revenue Service employees used other politically-loaded terms besides "tea party" when they culled applications for tax-exempt status and then subjected them to extra scrutiny — including the words "progressive", "blue", "emerge", "occupy", "potential successors to the anti-poverty organization ACORN", "medical marijuana group" and "organizations that were promoting President Obama’s health care law."

"Three such organizations -- Emerge Nevada, Emerge Maine and Emerge Massachusetts -- all were denied tax-exempt status because the IRS determined that they existed strictly to benefit Democratic candidates." Yet, the IRS granted 501(c)(4) status to the Waco Texas Tea Party.

but beyond that, it would have damaged the tourist industry as well as destroying the value of the retirement homes on the river in Bullhead City.....
all the folks driving to Laughlin would have loved driving through solar panel farms on the Sam Kinison highway....
Did you look at the map? The site is not near Bullhead City. It's on the opposite side of the River on the Nevada/California border. I would find driving through a solar panel farm interesting. Just as driving through the wind farms along the Mojave-Barstow Highway is interesting.

Like it or not, renewable energy sources are important to the world as a replacement for nonrenewable sources such as coal and petroleum.

If all the borrowers with sub prime mortgages made their payments would we have had a mortgage crisis?
No, we wouldn't have, ergo the massive amounts of defaulters who never should have had a mortgage caused the crisis. And the government was the cause of that, starting with the CRA.
Wise up and take the blame you deserve.
Couldn't be put any clearer. They thought they were getting something for nothing, that it was too good to be true. Well....

Ask the Republican controlled House of Representatives. Republicans waltzed into the House in 2011 promising Americans their primary focus was jobs, jobs, jobs, only to introduce legislation that killed a million jobs. When Boehner was informed the Republican spending cuts would kill 1 million jobs he said,“so be it”. You should be so proud.

the site as shown is about 200 yards from Bullhead City......

look at the streets on your stylized "map"......

and understand that Laughlin is a tourist destination, not a factory town......

Oh please...Ask the democrat president and democrat controlled Senate who would scoff at and dismiss anything put forth by the GOP.

Construction projects in the 2009 stimulus bill that were supposed to get moving right away but were held up because of elaborate government regulations and permitting procedures.

Obama thought that was funny. "Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected.¨

Your constant blaming of the right for all the country's ills is as ignorant as your claim Obama never lied about the ACA.

I'm sure the 14 "honorary degrees" felt SO right to him too. Just like that cherry job he was offered straight out of college. Not that Hillary's brat wasn't likely just as coddled at uni., just for different reasons.

'Oh Please' yourself..
Pity that NOTHING,not a single Bill that came from the House that had the slightest thing to do with 'creating jobs' also wasnt spiked with provisions to defund the Affordable Health Care Act.
With the Tea Bag Lackeys in the House knowing full well before hand none of their proposals had the slightest chance in hell of passing the Senate with those provisions as part of it.
Acting in bad faith or pure hypocritical disingenousness on the part of the House.
Take your pick.

Strange how the 'coddling' the wealthiest 1%(whose asses you kiss) enjoy as part of their cradle to the grave existance doesnt seem to trouble you Koch Ciphers.
You just want to make sure those uppity Minorities and Women dont get anything they dont have coming (by your lights) right?
