It took 1 1/2 years to get health care reform passed. Just ask the Clintons how amazing it is that Obama got it done at all. It's a shame he had to spend that much time on it, but he fought hard. In the long run, it will save money. Any major change will cost more upon implementation before the savings start showing. So we needed to do it to avoid the massive costs later. It's like getting your oil changed to keep from replacing your engine in the future. You may not be able to afford it, but if you don't do it, the costs will be many times the cost of the initial oil change. Obama is very intelligent at being president. He just seems to be one of the few people with vision. By the way, vision is a major quality of a good leader. It's just a shame he's in the minority in DC. All of our politicians need to have vision, but it just doesn't happen that way. Maybe it's because the voters don't pay attention. I'm voting Obama. You can choose to stay mired in the past if you wish. America gives you that right. It's a changing world. I suggest you pay closer attention.
That was interesting, and well said. Thank you for the post.

If Obamacare is so great then why are so many against it? Nothing in life is free. Healthcare cost what healthcare cost. If millions get free healthcare or at least at a reduced rate someone has to pick up all or the rest of the tab. It will be those who the government deems has enough disposable income to afford it whether or not they actually do have enough to afford it. Then you pile higher income taxes on that to pay for the out of control spending and it leaves middle America in the same poverty boat as the poor in this country. The healthcare is just like the rest of Obama's policies, if it was a success the economy would show it. The Jobs Recovery Act would have put people back to work and unemployment would not be on the rise again but it didn't and it is. So what does our president say to calm fears? "I guess the shovel ready jobs weren't as shovel ready as we expected", and he wonders why people have no confidence in his policies. Businesses do what they always do when things are uncertain, they go into self preservation mode and minimize expenses. The easiest expense to eliminate is labor. What is the democratic government's counter to this? Higher taxes on businesses and the wealthy. All this does is cause businesses to tighten up more. This type of governing hurts the middle class the most because they mostly work for someone else and the raised taxes are taken directly out of their checks leaving no power to the working middle class to control how much money they get to keep. This is when liberal democrats go into coverup mode by creating bad feelings between the employer and employee with class warfare. It's what is currently happening and it is just another reason to get Obama out of office. The means may change but the principles of success remain the same so your argument that voting for Obama keeps you from getting "mired" in the past doesn't hold water. But keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better.
" The Jobs Recovery Act would have put people back to work and unemployment would not be on the rise again but it didn't"

''''''''''PANTS ON FIRE''''''''''

One year after the stimulus, several independent macroeconomic firms, including Moody's and IHS Global Insight, estimated that the stimulus saved or created 1.6 to 1.8 million jobs and forecast a total impact of 2.5 million jobs saved by the time the stimulus is completed

But it’s just false to say that the stimulus created "no jobs" or "failed to save and create jobs" or "has done nothing to reduce unemployment" – or similar claims that the stimulus did not produce any jobs.

As we have written before, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released a report in August that said the stimulus bill has "[l]owered the unemployment rate by between 0.7 percentage points and 1.8 percentage points" and "[i]ncreased the number of people employed by between 1.4 million and 3.3 million."

Simply put, more people would be unemployed if not for the stimulus bill. The exact number of jobs created and saved is difficult to estimate, but nonpartisan economists say there’s no doubt that the number is positive.

Analysis

&#65279;&#65279;&# 65279;&#65279;&#65279; &#65279;&#65279;&# 65279;Mitt Romney claims President Barack Obama’s spending amounts to an “inferno.” But who is really responsible for the huge jump that took place in fiscal 2009? Here are some undisputed facts:
&#9632;Fiscal 2009 began Oct. 1, 2008. That was before Obama was elected, and nearly four months before he took office on Jan. 20, 2009.
&#9632;President Bush signed the massive spending bill under which the government was operating when Obama took office. That was Sept. 30, 2008. As The Associated Press noted, it combined “a record Pentagon budget with aid for automakers and natural disaster victims, and increased health care funding for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.”
&#9632;Bush also signed, on Oct. 3, 2008, a bank bailout bill that authorized another $700 billion to avert a looming financial collapse (though not all of that would end up being spent in fiscal 2009, and Obama later signed a measure reducing total authorized bailout spending to $475 billion).
&#9632;On Jan. 7, 2009 — two weeks before Obama took office — the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office issued its regular budget outlook, stating:“CBO projects that the deficit this year will total $1.2 trillion.”
&#9632;CBO attributed the rapid rise in spending to the bank bailout and the federal takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – plus rising costs for unemployment insurance and other factors driven by the collapsing economy (which shed 818,000 jobs in January alone).
&#9632;Another factor beyond Obama’s control was an automatic 5.8 percent cost of living increase announced in October 2008 and given to Social Security beneficiaries in January 2009. It was the largest since 1982. Social Security spending alone rose $66 billion in fiscal 2009, and Medicare spending, driven by rising medical costs, rose $39 billion.

If the stimulus performed as it was sold to the American people then unemployment would have gone down. This is what I was talking about when I said it would have put people back to work. To spin the numbers like you and many other liberals do is to just make uninformed people think that the stimulus did more than it did. The stimulus may have created jobs but how many jobs were created just until the stimulus for a given company ran out? You can speculate all day long about unemployment rates if we had not passed the stimulus but you don't have any idea if that is correct. All the companies that are sitting on piles of cash are asking for two things: 1) lower tax rates so they can hire more employees and 2)certainty in the markets so they know what they are up against. Give them that and the unemployment rate will quickly fall. The problem is we have an administration that won't do that because they have already framed the argument that wealthy business people are evil oppressors of the common employee. They are trying to tax their way out of the problem thus causing uncertainty in the markets which is exactly opposite of what they should do. So the companies sit and wait. Obama has already decided not to give in so he will ride that horse into the ground until he loses in November. The last words you will probably hear Obama say is "This is all Bush's fault".

I think your responses generally show that I don't have much to worry about. I sure wish that there had more like you when I was battling wits on an everyday basis, it sure would have my job easier. I know you could be a more worthy opponet if you woud just engage your brain occasionaly before you speak, but you are in such a hurry to be heard I doubt if that is going to happen. I notice that you have gotten back into correcting spelling and grammar when you have no ideas. Find my misspelled words.

You are right, I am wrong. It is gettinga little like when a 12 year old picks on a 7 year old, it can bw funny, but is really no point to it. I guess as long as most people realize what he is, there is no point in me pointing it out. Again sorry, he just makes it so easy.

You have said that you are not a liberal yet you've supported Obamacare and feel that Obama's has been stopped from fully implementing his policies because Republicans have blocked him. I agree that you are not a liberal. You are a socialist.
