Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

What Republican plan are you talking about Ace? Because currently the Republicans don't really have one. But here's one GOP bill from 1993 The Health Equity and Access Reform Today Act. It had a list of 20 co-sponsors that was a who’s who of Republican leadership. There was Minority Leader Bob Dole, R- Kan., Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, Richard Lugar, R-Ind., and many others. There also were two Democratic co-sponsors. Among its provisions were;
• An individual mandate;
• Creation of purchasing pools;
• Standardized benefits;
• Vouchers for the poor to buy insurance;
• A ban on denying coverage based on a pre-existing condition.
Sound familiar?
Stuart Butler, then director of domestic policy research at Heritage and, since 2010, director of Heritage’s Center For Policy Innovation made this statement;
Many states now require passengers in automobiles to wear seatbelts for their own protection. Many others require anybody driving a car to have liability insurance. But neither the federal government nor any state requires all households to protect themselves from the potentially catastrophic costs of a serious accident or illness. Under the Heritage plan, there would be such a requirement.
Sounds like an individual mandate to me.
In a 1989 lecture, Butler also said
a new index of eligibility would be developed to link Medicaid coverage to poverty instead of welfare. This is an important distinction, because many poor families struggling to keep off welfare currently risk enormous and uncovered medical bills because they are not eligible, or do not seek, to go on to the welfare rolls.
Wow! Medicaid expansion too!
I wouldn't go to someone like Michael Barone for an opinion which this is. He's ignoring the fact that while the housing bubble was expanding out of control, the GOP held power in Congress and could have done whatever they wanted too.
Keep in mind that this genius pretty much batted zero in his predictions for the 2012 elections.

Amount Each President Added to the Debt per Fiscal Year Since 1960:
President Barack Obama: Added $5.081 trillion, a 44% increase to the $11.657 trillion debt level attributable to President Bush at the end of his last budget, FY 2009.
FY 2013 -$672 billion.
FY 2012 -$1.276 trillion.
FY 2011 -$1.229 trillion.
FY 2010 -$1.652 trillion.
FY 2009 -$253 billion.(Congress passed the Economic Stimulus Act, which spent $253 billion in FY 2009. This rare occurrence should be added to President Obama's contribution to the debt.)
President George W. Bush: Added $5.849 trillion, a 101% increase to the $5.8 trillion debt level at the end of Clinton's last budget, FY 2001.
FY 2009 -$1.632 trillion.(Bush's deficit without the impact of the Economic Stimulus Act).
FY 2008 -$1.017 trillion.
FY 2007 -$501 billion.
FY 2006 -$574 billion.
FY 2005 -$554 billion.
FY 2004 -$596 billion.
FY 2003 -$555 billion.
FY 2002 -$421 billion.
Gee let's see. With 3 years to go he only has $750 billion or so to go to spend more than Bush in 8 years.
Congress is responsible for, and has all authority to borrow on the credit of the United States. The Democrats took control of both houses of congress in January, 2007. The first spending year for that Congress was 2008.
Do you notice the dramatic increase in deficit and debt occurring immediately after the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government?
Notice, also, what happens to the deficit trend after the TEA Party begins to influence Congress.

I really think you should seriously consider moving to Russia. You are a total anti American.
Why do you do that? Is it because you're so miserable in your own life? Makes you feel important? What the hell is that? It's sick.

Was there any impact on the tortoise population due to the past 20 years of grazing?
Hmmm. Let's see...the desert tortoise an herbivore and grasses form the bulk of its diet, but it also eats herbs, annual wildflowers, and new growth of cacti so it is safe to say that grazing cattle have an adverse impact on the tortoise population.

<quoted text>Your son-in-law was elected by a combination of the Gimme Set who want everything to be handed to them free, the Liberal America Can Do No Right set and the Naive Millenials who bought Obama's promise of 'Hope and Change' president in 2008 and were just as clueless in 2012.
Given enough time and five long years of broken promises and blatant lies should be enough for anyone. Even shallow and gullible "millennials" should realize that they were had.
Worse, just this past week MIchelle demanded to see his birth certificate.
The mere fact that she has been unable to see it for years is very indicative of another cover-up. One of her main concerns is whether or not she is actually legally married. She is secretly contemplating leaving the relationship when my free taxpayer-funded room and board ends in 2017 and taking the girls with her.

Would you like to provide Reagan's figures in today's dollars? And, just how much to think it took to fight that "Cold War" which you claim he won.
":The 80s called and they want their foreign policy back." Obama to Mitt Romney

Winning a war has a cost. Reagan won the Cold War. Bush kicked the crap out of the Islamist jihad before Obama and the Democrats surrendered and joined them. When Bush was President and winning the war the Arab Islamists started, he had lower deficits than the Democrats after they surrendered to the Islamist jihad.

The 30s called and they want their foreign policy back. Everyone with an education in history to any Democrat in the clown act running our government today.

OMG Carol, you act as if you've never had insurance in your life. Deductibles always have existed and always have to be paid, same as premiums. What the hell are you talking about?
So, tell us how you are paying your premiums to Obamacare? Do you write that on your check? BWaahaaa!
It's your insurance company. Yes; that lofty corporation with the $10 million dollar a year CEO and it's board that answers to shareholders. Do you know anything at all?
Your nasty, crass statements and questions reveal that that would actually be you.

You're a damned liar Carol! Democrats didn't have anything to do with people getting homes they couldn't afford. It was unregulated mortgage brokers who sold off the loans at a profit before they went bad and infected the mortgage backed securities market.

But this little fact is understandably too hard for some to digest. It blows the "affordable" part right out of the water.
Show us in the law where "deductibles and premiums HAVE to be paid up front". Tick Tock.
