how about the cost of two useless unwinnable wars that Bush started? dont forget we had NO money to pay for these wars...PLUS INTEREST!
take a peek here
Iraq, Afghan wars will cost to $4 trillion to $6 trillion !!!!!!
The U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq will cost taxpayers $4 trillion to $6 trillion, taking into account the medical care of wounded veterans and expensive repairs to a force depleted by more than a decade of fighting, according to a new study by a Harvard researcher.
Washington increased military benefits in late 2001 as the nation went to war, seeking to quickly bolster its talent pool and expand its ranks. Those decisions and the protracted nation-building efforts launched in both countries will generate expenses for years to come, Linda J. Bilmes, a public policy professor, wrote in the report that was released Thursday.
“As a consequence of these wartime spending choices, the United States will face constraints in funding investments in personnel and diplomacy, research and development and new military initiatives,” the report says.“The legacy of decisions taken during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars will dominate future federal budgets for decades to come.”
Fix news dont report this, why is that?

I'll take the Government Accountability Office over your website any day of the week. Please tell me, in what universe, does excess spending lower the deficit?
"Obamacare will increase the long-term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion, according to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report released today.
The GAO report is essentially the first attempt to isolate and calculate Obamacare’s impact on the deficit beyond the traditional ten-year budget window. GAO ran two simulations “based on broad sets of assumptions about health care spending and other components of federal spending and revenue” over a 75-year period. First, a baseline-extended simulation, which “illustrates the long-term outlook assuming federal laws (applicable at the time the simulation was run) remain unchanged,” and second, an alternative simulation, which “illustrates the long-term fiscal outlook assuming historical trends and policy preferences continue.”
The baseline scenario is far more optimistic, largely because it does not take into account the concerns — expressed by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Trustees, and Medicare’s chief actuary — about “whether certain cost-containment mechanisms included in PPACA can be sustained over the long term.”
However, the GAO report concluded that even under these “more optimistic assumptions,” Obamacare’s cost-control provisions “were not sufficient to prevent an unsustainable increase in debt held by the public.”
The alternative scenario, which incorporates the more realistic “alternative projections” suggested by CBO, the CMS trustees, and the chief Medicare actuary, is even more dire. Under this scenario, the “primary deficit” increases by 0.7 percent of GDP over the 75-year period. The GAO does not put a dollar value on that figure, but Senate Budget Committee staff has calculated, and GAO has confirmed, that it would amount to a $6.2 trillion increase in the federal deficit. "
Sorry Bobby, Math wins and you lose...actually, we all lose.

The Real numbers !
"The Government Accountability Office estimated (Obamacare) will add to the long-term deficit by $6.2 trillion."
Griffith said the GAO estimated Obamacare will add $6.2 trillion to deficits over the next 75 years.
That figure isn’t in the GAO report that Griffith’s office cited. Republicans came up with the number by adding reasonable computations to a worst-case scenario laid out by the GAO early this year.
Griffith failed to mention that the report also contained a rosy scenario showing Obamacare could substantially reduce long-term deficits. The GAO did not say in its report which of the scenarios is more likely to occur. Many experts say the reality likely will fall somewhere in the middle.
So Griffith’s statement contains a trace of fact, but creates a deceptive claim about what the GAO report said. We rate his statement Mostly False.
Politifacts dont lie..........tea bag websites do..HAAAA!!!!!!!!

The Daily Caller is owned by none other than the tea bagger conservative Tucker Carlton the ex FIX news reporter.
He was canned along with Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin ..LOL!
The Daily Caller likes to suck in the idiot tea bag drones that believe their stories and lies.
Here is a sample of their worthless news and lies.
Senator Bob Menendez prostitution controversy and FBI investigation In an article titled "Women: Sen. Bob Menendez paid us for sex in the Dominican Republic", The Daily Caller reported that New Jersey senator Bob Menendez had allegedly paid two prostitutes to have sex with him during a stay at a Dominican Republic resort. The report included videotaped interviews with the women. The allegation came five days before the 2012 New Jersey senate election. News organizations such as the New York Times, ABC News and the New York Post declined to publish the allegations, viewing them as unsubstantiated and lacking credibility.
Former FIX news ex employees go on to lower heights to make money and false news stories, FIX news taught them well !

Scandal Fever Is Making Fox News Even More Demented Than Usual!!!!!!!
It must be a terrible burden to have to manage as many trumped up scandals as Fox News is currently struggling with. The sheer volume of fabricated nonsense to manufacture and inventory would be a strain on any propaganda outfit. But the pressure is showing now as Fox appears unable to function under the weight of the task. Take a look at these recent schizoid episodes they have belched out:
On the Fox Business Network, their anchor Lou Dobbs hosted a panel to discuss the state of women in the workplace and the results of a new poll that shows more American women are the primary earners in their families. In order to have a balanced debate on this subject, Fox invited only men to participate. But after you hear what one of those men said, you’ll understand why women weren’t necessary:
•There has been no shortage of reporting by Fox that negatively frames the issue of marriage equality, but when a Republican senator, Rob Portman, announces that because of his gay son he now supports it, Fox nearly ignores the subject entirely.
•One of Fox’s favorite stories of the past several years involved the videos of James O’Keefe, whose editing was deliberately misleading and dishonest, but when one of his victims, Juan Carlos Vera, forced O’Keefe into a $100,000 settlement, Fox abstained from reporting it.
Lies and fantasies dont win elections, as you can see by the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections !!
Yes folks, visit FIX news and Daily Caller websites for the real ,unbiased,newsworthy ,late breaking news....LOL!
And you wonder why the Limbaugh nut juice sippers cant win elections !! LOL!

Megyn Kelly Draws a Large, Older Audience on Fox News Show:
On her first night as a central player in the Fox News prime-time lineup, Megyn Kelly scored impressively with the network’s core audience of older viewers, but did not register much improvement in attracting additional viewers in the category that makes money for cable news networks, viewers between the ages of 25 and 54.
In fact, among that group, Ms. Kelly finished second to Rachel Maddow on MSNBC in the 9 p.m. hour. That qualifies as something of a surprise given the amount of publicity Fox News put behind the introduction of Ms. Kelly and her status as the fastest rising star at the network.
A possible reason for those results, executives at both Fox News and MSNBC suggested on Monday, was that the issues of the day, the shutdown of the government and the threat of default if the government’s debt ceiling is not raised, seem to be drawing MSNBC’s core left-of-center audience to that channel.
Over all, MSNBC had an unusually robust night, led at 7 p.m. by a strong performance by Chris Matthews on his “Hardball” show, which averaged 377,000 viewers in the 25-to-54 group. That was the best result on cable news all night, other than that of the perennially dominant Bill O’Reilly on Fox News, whose 8 p.m. show averaged an audience of 415,000 among those viewers. And at 10 p.m., where Sean Hannity has been relocated on Fox News, Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC managed to tie Mr. Hannity in that age category (important because news advertisers pay for viewers in that group) with 251,000 each.
In conclusion older white males ( over 54 ) that arent getting their share of sex tune into Fox's pretty women to masturbate where as the younger generation date abd have sex they dont need to see pretty woman and bogus reporting. Thus the switching of Sean Hannity and Megyn Kelly.
Older white guys try get off on pretty women with some help from Viagra ,but older white guys are in the minority today and those folks are just outnumbered by a more intelligent group of people that turn to reliable news channels for their news.
No matter how much lipstick you put on a pig, it's still a pig.. LMAO!
A pretty face will draw in old guys but wont draw in the votes for the desperate tea bagger ccadidates..LMAO!

John McCain gets feisty with Sean Hannity, letting him know that not only was Fox News wrong about Libya, but Hannity himself was wrong about it. John McCain was brought onto the Fox News Hannity show to speak about the international ramifications of events in Libya, but Sean Hannity did not want to hear the truth. He only wanted to hear talking points that were established to fit the party line that Fox News states.
Noting that Hannity and people on FoxNews said of the Libyans --'Let's not help these people', he further goes on to establish that a democratic government was, indeed, put into place by the vote of the people.'They had an election, and they elected moderates!'
'A democratic, non Islamic government was elected,' notes John McCain.
When the talk about Libya starts to turn harsh, and John McCain reiterates that FoxNews was wrong, and he knows it, Sean starts to babble on about anything else he can talk about and with a short quip response from McCain, he is then shut off - the segment is immediately ended.
FoxNews can't handle dissention within the ranks, and slowly but surely, they are getting a ton of dissention from all manner of Republicans who are refusing to play by the slanted rules of their games. Telling the truth? Forget it, you'll be cut off and you won't be able to finish.

Ted Cruz [ R ] Texas and his tea bagger followers will be defeated as the debt ceiling will be passed and Obamacare will NOT be touched...the tea baggers cant hang on for very long..........
John Boehner Speaker of the House will fold like a cheap suit and allow the vote to proceed to raise the debt ceiling.
The GOP will once again bow to Obama as their master.
After all Obama beat McCain and Romney like a couple rented mules.
The voters have spoken, Obamacare is the law of the land and will not be touched unless Obama wants it to.
Tea baggers will lose in 2014 elections and both the House and the Senate will rule the land....
Then Hillary will be the favored front runner in 2016..... tea baggers will be moaning for another 8 years after Hillary is elected.
The tea baggers will crawl back into their holes and only come out to swallow up the Limbaugh nut juice unless he overdoses on cocaine since he's a real junkie.....LMAO!

Newt Gingrich: Ted Cruz Is A 'Dramatic Dissenter To The Washington Establishment'
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) appeared to lash out Sunday at Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for dragging down the Republican Party's ratings.
An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Thursday found the GOP's approval rating was only 24 percent, the lowest it's ever been in that poll.
"Ted Cruz is a very aggressive articulator of a hardline position that probably 20 or 25 percent of the country agrees with," said Gingrich on CNN's "State of the Union."
The former Georgia congressman was responding to a question from moderator Candy Crowley about whether Cruz's uncompromising stance on Obamacare is damaging the Republican Party brand.

Nope. If Fox is to the right and MSLSD is the left, the TYT is about as far left as you can get. They make MSLSD look moderate!
Go suck more of daddy's nut juice, Booby.

wrong again penis breath....dont listen to FIX news or a right wingnut website...
. If I don’t want to get insurance, am I going to have to pay?
You will have to pay a penalty if you don’t sign up for health insurance. Why? Because taxpayers will be fronting the cost of your care if you wind up getting sick or hurt and need to go to the hospital, and that will be a lot more expensive than the penalty you’re paying. In 2014, the tax penalty for an adult will be $95 or 1 percent of your family income. For a child, the cost will be $47.50, with a total family cap at a $285 fine. By 2016 and beyond, it will cost you 2.5 percent of your family income, or $695, whichever is higher. Again, there is a cap on how much you’ll have to pay:$2,085 for a family.
Realistically, though, the law creates enough options that you shouldn’t forgo care because of cost. If you don’t think you can afford to get health care, look into the Medicaid expansion. If you don’t qualify there either, and you really can’t afford it, you should know that there are financial hardship exceptions from the penalties. There are also penalty exemptions for the undocumented, the incarcerated, and people with religious objections. If you dont pay, the IRS will deduct it from your paycheck or take it out of your income tax refund if you are entitled to get one.
