Obamacare Has Another Bad Week — Really, Even Compared to Previous Bad Weeks.
Meanwhile, out in Nevada, the worst nightmare of Harry Reid and Barack Obama comes to fruition:
Contract negotiations are stalled for thousands of workers at casinos on the Strip and in downtown Las Vegas to the point where they may go on strike — and the sticking point is Obamacare.
On Feb. 20, thousands of housekeepers, porters, cooks, cocktail servers, and others represented by Nevada’s largest union, the Culinary Union Local 226, voted to end a contract extension the workers agreed to last summer. The union wants to maintain its current benefits — including health care coverage at no cost to workers, pensions, and guaranteed 40-hour workweeks.
Rising health care costs due to provisions in the Affordable Care Act could put those benefits in jeopardy, the union says.
“The biggest hurdle to reaching settlements in Vegas is the new costs imposed on our health plan by Obamacare,” Donald “D” Taylor, president of Unite Here, the parent union of CU Local 226, told BuzzFeed in a statement.“Even though the president and Congress promised we could keep our health plan, the reality is, unless the law is fixed, that won’t be true.”
When the unions are starting to sound like us [conservatives], then you know this law is in serious trouble.

So... if "one in 10 uninsured people who qualify for private health plans through the new marketplace have signed up for one" and "just over half of uninsured people said they had started to pay," then it sounds like the ACA has "helped" a whopping 5% of previously uninsured people. SUCCESS!!!

Obama administration defends cuts on nuclear security
March 8, 2014
Just weeks before he heads to The Hague to meet with world leaders for the third Nuclear Security Summit, President Obama has unveiled a budget that includes more than $220 million in cuts for nuclear security programs in the next fiscal year.
One of the biggest reductions will come to the International Material Protection and Cooperation program, which works to secure and eliminate vulnerable nuclear weapons and materials. Obama asked for $305.5 million, or $114 million less than was appropriated in the 2014 budget.
With the proposed cuts, some nuclear security experts now question whether Obama, who made nuclear security a pet issue during his time in the Senate and launched the biennial Nuclear Security Summit process, remains committed to the issue.

I agree with you,
but what do you expect from a few blunt headed oddball Tea Baggers that post nothing but hot button poppin fresh propaganda garbage from those stooges down at the Club For Growth, spnsored by The Heritage Action committee headed by the king stooge Jimmy D. Mint. These blunt headed oddballs eat that shtt up real good, now don't they?
There is one stooge on here that used to post as, get this, Tax No More, now thats about as original as they get right there Tax No More, hahaha. These peple lack any kind of original thought processing whatsoever, If it were not for the Cut & Paste feature on your browser they would be shtt outof luck. So, that old Tax No More moron continually scrools fresh garbage daily to try to get their message of the oppression towards the billionaire class by the American middle class. Why would these idiots want an educated American middle class?
This would, without a doubt, be against their self interest as their audience of shtt for brain ditto heads once educated might be able to understand why theyre so damn angry all the time....and we all know who we are talking about here.
We all know the type...yes the odd-ball class.
These folks are really like sheeple and have brains that cant determine when they're being fed the bullcrap that eminates from the rights propoganda machine.
besides that lately theyve been on a rant about how ugly democratic women are compared to the dim witted Fox babes...Ive got two words for them about this
Contessa Brewer....Contessa smokes these hens in the Fox house. hahahah
see original thought right there...these idiots just cant do it. theyre way too dumb.

They must have a low paying job to take on another job as posting in here for 7.50 an hour. But this might be their only job. It doesn't take intelligence to copy and paste, most posts the poster has no idea what the articles actually say . I really cant see the point since Obama will be in office until Jan 20th of 2016. Almost another 2 years of more Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck propaganda.. I love it though !!
You'd think they'd type something to really make their posts even more humorous.
While the teabaggers ran on NO NEW DEBT, now they want to bomb Russia, but fighting wars aren't free, maybe open up another card charge because Bush maxed out the ones he took out.
Funny how all the tea baggers can protest day and night on spending, and none will raise their hand to go to war. They want the blood of others to run not theirs.
Cant have it both ways.... I enjoy my daily FAUX du jour mind set postings by some lame brain that still believes the earth is flat and there really is an Easter Bunny.......... LMAO!
Keep up the good work, in the meantime we can work on Obama's impeachment ! LMAO!*rolls eyes *

Some conservatives have started laying into the Oscar-winning movie 12 Years a Slave for creating an unfairly negative portrayal of slavery. You see, the movie portrays slaves being made unhappy by slavery. But that negativity is merely anti-slavery "propaganda," according to James Bowman in conservative magazine The American Spectator:
If ever in slavery's 250-year history in North America there were a kind master or a contented slave, as in the nature of things there must have been, here and there, we may be sure that Mr McQueen does not want us to hear about it. This, in turn, surely means that his view of the history of the American South is as partial and one-sided as that of the hated Gone With the Wind.
...Yes, there was much cruelty and hardship in the slave-owning South, as there has been in most of the rest of the world most of the time, and Mr. McQueen's camera is all over that. But it strains ordinary credulity to suppose that there was nothing else.
We are wondering, was Bowman equally aggrieved by the lack of happy Jews in Schindler's List?

New Post-ABC News poll: Keystone XL project overwhelmingly favored by Americans
Americans support the idea of constructing the Keystone XL oil pipeline between Canada and the United States by a nearly 3 to 1 margin, with 65 percent saying it should be approved and 22 percent opposed, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The findings also show that the public thinks the massive project, which aims to ship 830,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta and the northern Great Plains to refineries on the Gulf Coast, will produce significant economic benefits. Eighty-five percent say the pipeline would create a significant number of jobs, with 62 percent saying they “strongly” believed that to be the case.

. The same fossil fuel interests pushing the Keystone pipeline have been cutting, not creating, jobs: Despite generating $546 billion in profits between 2005 and 2010, ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell, and BP reduced their U.S. workforce by 11,200 employees over that period. In 2010 alone, the top five oil companies slashed their global workforce by 4,400 employees — the same year executives paid themselves nearly $220 million. But at least those working in the industry as a whole get paid high wages, right? Turns out that 40 percent of U.S oil-industry jobs consist of minimum-wage work at gas stations. Instead of bankrolling an industry that is laying off workers and threatening our economic future, isn’t it time to take the billions in subsidies going to oil companies and invest instead in a sector that both creates jobs and protects the planet?
Unemployment will rise: According to Mark Zandi, the Chief Economist of Moody’s Analytics:“Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on the job market in November, slicing an estimated 86,000 jobs from payrolls.” In the wake of Hurricane Irene, the number of workers filing unemployment claims in Vermont went from 731 before Irene to 1,331 two weeks afterwards. Hurricane Katrina wiped out 129,000 jobs in the New Orleans region — nearly 20 percent. For the U.S. economy as a whole, 2011 cost US taxpayers $52 billion.
. Poor and working people will be disproportionately affected: KXL and projects like it result in disproportionately negative impact on already struggling working families. According to a recent report by the Center for American Progress called “Heavy Weather: How Climate Destruction Harms Middle- and Lower-Income Americans, lower-and middle income households are disproportionately affected by the most expensive extreme weather events. Sixteen states were afflicted by five or more extreme weather events in 2011-12. Households in disaster-declared counties in these states earn $48,137, or seven percent below the U.S. median income. Gas and oil will be no cheaper ,as a matter of a fact oil prices will rise with the KXL.

The United States public's opinion of the invasion of Iraq has changed significantly since the years preceding the incursion. For various reasons, mostly related to the unexpected consequences of the invasion, as well as misinformation provided by US authorities, the US public’s perspective on its government’s choice to initiate an offensive is increasingly negative. Before the invasion in March 2003, polls showed 47-60% of the US public supported an invasion, dependent on U.N. approval. According to the same poll retaken in April 2007, 58% of the participants stated that the initial attack was a mistake. In May 2007, the New York Times and CBS News released similar results of a poll in which 61% of participants believed the U.S. "should have stayed out" of Iraq
