Barrac Obama told lies, in my book that MAKES HIM A LIAR!
Its not that he lied. If you read all his comments you would discover on this issue that some would lose their present insurance policies if the insurance companies do not want to reform their policies to incorporate all of the additional benefits and procedures that are covered by Obamacare. I have answered this before as well as the proof is self evident.
Now Monopolized Health Care Insurance companies are simply trying to hype up the fear for the naives that buy such dribble.
It is difficult with eyes closed to see what is illuminated. Go ahead let the old Monopolized H.C. Insurance take you by the hand and lead you to their promise land. Just as they have been doing for the past century. In this land you will discover the Highest Cost To H.C. in the world ! That is what you prefer? You still believe in them? LOL Talk about the herd mentality.

Six people out of 300+ million is rather pathetic. It's a shame that it's taking something like this to smarten people up. So much for "Hope and Change".
We need a third party that isn't part of The Establishment. Both existing parties are infected with parasites feeding off of lobbyist kickbacks and our tax dollars.
Dearest defiant we have already explored your intolerance to math and statistical application of probabilities. Suggest you seek another alternative in trying to comprehend such complex equations as 6 to 300 million as high probability of a corruptive force is skewing the actual data. This is something you will never be able to appreciate. LOL Then your appeal for people to “SMARTEN UP”. A preacher that does not practice what they preach is soon to lose the flock.
Here you again boringly suggesting a third party to solve all your woes. You can’t do it with two. How in the world will you ever come to comprehend 3? That’s a larger number than two you know, which you can’t handle now.
To be fair though, you do have a third party. Just go the next Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and they will take you by the hand and explain how different they are from the republicans conservative and progressives elements. They are your kind of party. Go and enjoy the slide into the archaic dust bins of history. Where you can hear the cathedral bells dripping down the alley ways. Tolling the bells for thee.

Ah WACO you have returned. Presently we require proofs of what you are spewing and not some Foxy Opinionated nut case ramblings. As the propaganda mud will flow to suck in any naiveté that wallows within its grasp. What do they offer? Highest Cost to H.C. in the world which you can only applaud to?
What a difference with an intelligent leadership. President Obama open a small preview of things to come.
“I can tell you right now that in many states across the country, if you’re, say, a 27-year-old young woman, don’t have health insurance, you get on that exchange, you’re going to be able to purchase high-quality health insurance for less than the cost of your cellphone bill,” Mr. Obama said Tuesday.
For a benchmark plan — the second-lowest-cost “silver plan,” covering 70 percent of projected medical costs for a typical consumer — the average premium nationally will be $328 a month for individuals.
Yes, yes I know what about the 30% remaining. Keep in mind Medicare that many already enjoy. They could use it as a supplement as I use Medicare as a supplement to my VFW medical benefits.
This is for those approaching Medicare and cannot afford health insurance at all. Once you reach fifty and you lose a job good luck getting another one. Out to pasture to graze on your laurels will more likely be the case. Minim income if any and NO health insurance. That’s where the Previous republican behemoth monopolized Health Insurance Companies started to hit these individuals with huge increases in premiums and less coverage, with higher co pays. Its going to take a few years to fix that corruptive hole that republicans created with their dysfunctional Health Care Insurance plans.
For a family of “FOUR” with an annual income of $50,000, the administration said, monthly premiums for the second-cheapest plan will vary widely, averaging $600 in Arizona,$800 in Georgia,$961 in Indiana,$1,069 in Mississippi,$859 in New Hampshire,$943 in New Jersey and $656 in Utah.
OF course this is our first steps unto the road of someday Universal Care as the rest of our civilized world already enjoys at far less cost than our start up cost. There will be higher cost for those states that obstructs and or require the Federal to actively set up the program for them. Catering service charges, that the taxpayers of those states will be paying, for voting in a dysfunctional leadership. 2014 coming. Rectify that problem or additional obstructions will cost more to be removed, charged to the taxpayers insurance plan.

As this is a new page will repeat the how austerity is a pyramid for the few even among nations….
Austerity harsh profits and its potential failure illuminated.
Well, well we now can observe the demise of austerity in Europe. Chancellor Angela Merkel is preaching austerity to their neighbors all the while loosening the purse strings in Germany, to address a first in its history, minimum wage of $11.50, equal pensions for both the East And West, equal pay for women, tax increases on the affluent, infrastructure funding, education, energy and higher child care.
Ms. Merkel has taken advantage of the undervalued euro, increasing their “EXPORTS” at the cost to their neighbors loses. Greece, Italy, Spain, France and Portugal have carried the cost burden of the austerity of Germany. Alas now a growing rebellion against austerity amongst the VOTERS of these nations is exposing how Germany prospered at their lost.
They bore huge unemployment to their youth and lost of tax revenue. Germany on the other hand prospered. Record employment paid for their welfare systems. Debt has soared since 2000 at about 80% of their GDP which is far less than what the USA, France and the UK experienced.
Now Ms. Merkel is facing more than $100 Billion euro’s or $135 Billion over the next 15 years to repair its stock of roads, bridges and railroads. This with a workforce at present of 42 million paying taxes. Their national average of births has declined to 1.4 children. Insufficient for replacement rate of 2.1. Child Care systems will require additional financial attention.
Now their neighbors scorn how Germany has taken advantage of them. The EU is coming under attack for reform.
Political scientist Roberto d’Alimonte of Luiss Guido Carli University has no doubts that Germany will have to pay restitution for the damage it has bestowed upon its neighbors. Not to do so would erode Germany’s standing.
“What place in history can Germany have without Europe? A community of values has to include also some kind of solidarity. Because without that, it will not
survive.”

Poor defiant with his insomnia. Let Mary Jane carry you off to la, la land.
Here we have a herb that is not addictive, relieves various forms of pain and nausea, stimulates appetite, and provides a buffer zone for the liberals to tolerate the buffoonery of the progressive conservatives. Comes in many editable flavors or simple pill forms if desired.
That would sure take a chunk of change out of drug enforcement and suppress our world record of incarcerations, and suppress the avenues for the more toxic lethal drugs to follow for their distributions.
Now who would lobby against this? Can you spell CARTEL.??

Mjjcap has not read the CBO report no doubt. After all Fox forbade their herd to seek intelligence.
Consider Obama knows how to get the deficit down, Where as republicans have no idea on how to do that. Give Obama room to invest and get the deficit going down faster than it already is. Republicans cry to fast, to fat slooooow down… I’ll go with Obama on this one. After all who created the debt in the first place. Republicans 1929 Great Depression and their 2008 Great Recession….
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid.

“I’m concerned about the fact there seems to be a war on the poor,” he said, sitting at the head of a burnished table as members of his cabinet lingered after a meeting.“That if you’re poor, somehow you’re shiftless and lazy.”
“You know what?” he said.“The very people who complain ought to ask their grandparents if they worked at the W.P.A.”
So speaketh the Apostle Gov. John R. Kasich of Ohio.
John then goes on to preach on the virtues of Medicaid expansion and Obamacare. Increases support to the Mentally Handicap literally giving a helping hand to his brother.
Fragrances of the 2014 election drifts by.
Once a leader in rebel rousing with Newt Gingrich for shutting down the government and now a reformed Christian for the empathy of his constituents. Has he not defied the preaching’s of the “Ideoloques”! Crying out in the wilderness for stronger safety nets. Was he not the one who supported the Democratic Cleveland mayor Frank Jackson to raise taxes to repair their infrastructure to the schools?
Have we not forgiven him for his transgressions against the Unions so long ago in 2011? Are we going to hold him responsible for his cutting revenue to local governments? Is his chauvinistic attack on our womenfolk to go unnoticed? Are Ohioans to forgive his hypocrisy by supporting polices for the past 3 years to cut $ 6,000.00 in taxes to the 1 % all the while increasing taxes on the impoverished?
Judgment day of 2014 approaches. Our Apostle Kasich repents his past failures. Does he not have the Christian empathy for a simple lady employed in this doughnut shop when he criticizes the widespread propaganda of his fellow republicans, when they accuse this fine lady, if she requires any social programs to get her children fed, of being of “A Culture Of Dependency” What is she to do when she can not afford simple primary care insurance for herself or her children due to the very low wages bestowed upon her by the Austerity polices of the vile republicans greed for their 1%. See how he has repented.
Does he not accept the $2.5 Billion federal funds for Medicaid for his 250,000 constituents that are in the same predicament as the doughnut lady? Was it not the pleading of the state hospitals and Ohio businesses and now in deep remorse agrees with their pleading on expanding Medicaid.
And yet his dark hypocoristic side remains. How are his believers to obtain this miracle insurance promised? Refusing to open the doors to admit applications for it?
Crying out it is poison and will cripple you. You will not be able to work and it will destroy our wealth…..
Bah Humbug.. Let us reduce the surplus populace and be done with them. That is how we balance the budget. Serenity for all will follow for all those that remain. So speaketh an Apostle of the republican reformed committee for republican elections.
