The CBO did NOT state that Obamacare "will cost us 2 million jobs."
That is a lie almost as big as death panels.
Directly from the report:
"CBO estimates that the ACA will reduce the total number of hours worked, on net, by about 1.5 percent to 2.0 percent during the period from 2017 to 2024, almost entirely because workers will choose to supply less labor given the new taxes and other incentives they will face and the financial benefits some will receive.
CHOOSE TO SUPPLY less labor. That means that the benefits provided by the ACA will create an opportunity for many workers to work LESS. They won't have to take a minimum wage job or work overtime just to pay for healthcare.
Keep up the lies though, they only make these dumb tea baggers look even DUMBER.

Keystone XL Jobs Lie
If it receives approval from both the State Department and the White House, the proposed Keystone XL pipeline would ship dirty tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada, down to the Gulf of Mexico to be shipped overseas. Not real oil but the waste from crude oil that nobody wants.
After years of claims by Republicans that the proposed Keystone XL pipeline would create tens of thousands of jobs, we now have some hard numbers on that, at least from the U.S. State Department, if you choose to believe them.
Last year, while pushing for the KXL, House Speaker John Boehner released a statement claiming that the pipeline will create over 20,000 direct jobs and 100,000 indirect jobs. On Friday, as the State Department released its Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on the project, Boehner once again released a statement reiterating his previous claim that the pipeline would bring more than 100,000 jobs.
The trouble is, thats not true. At least according to the actual State Department report, which was the occasion for Boehners Friday statement

Now, you are welcome to disagree with the CBO numbers, or Carneys or Kesslers or our interpretation of them.(As usual, you dont need to simply trust us. Weve given you the links to the actual reports. Read them and decide for yourself.) You are welcome to think its an outrage that people might choose to work less when they are ill, because they dont have to keep working in order to pay for healthcare. You are welcome to hate Obamacare all you like and demand its complete repeal, just as you are welcome to call for the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, if you like the idea of shipping the worlds dirtiest fossil fuel product across a continent of drinking water in order to ship gas to China.
But when youve got to lie, repeatedly, about demonstrable, independently verifiable facts, then you are not a legitimate advocate that deserves to be taken seriously.
The Republican Party has given up on advocating seriously for whatever policy positions they believe in. They are far past that, and have now simply taken to lying in hopes of scamming Americans into voting for them and buying into their policies.
That is not the earmark of a serious policymaking organization, and it is for that reason that we sadly no longer regard the Republican Party as a legitimate political body.
Thats not good for America or for Democrats, for that matter. But it just happens to be the sad truth.

It's no longer the "Republican" party. It's the Social Darwinist Party. That explains everything.
Boehner - Social Darwinist
Ted Cruz - Social Darwinist
Eric Cantor - Social Darwinist
Paul Ryan - Social Darwinist
Mitch McConnell - Social Darwinist
Rand Paul will be running for president in a few months on the Social Darwinist Presidential Ticket.

Barack Hussein Obama's 'pen and phone' threats to circumvent Congress and his history of enforcing only those laws he likes makes meaningless any assurances regarding immigration.
He's earned his reputation as a liar. "If you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan."
WashingtonPost.com , February 3
How Obamacare killed immigration reform
Barack Obama has all but conceded his lame-duck status. His State of the Union address was bereft of big ideas. And his declaration that he will use his pen and a phone to issue a raft of executive orders is an admission of political impotence a presidency reduced to small-ball initiatives like creating myRA savings accounts and raising the minimum wage for federal contractors.
The one exception his one last shot at a major legislative achievement was comprehensive immigration reform. But that isnt happening either.
And the reason can be summed up in one word: Obamacare.
Comprehensive is Washington-speak for big. And in the wake of the Obamacare debacle, no one is interested in anything big from Barack Obama.
I try to focus not on the fumbles but on the next plan, Obama said this weekend. But when you fumble as spectacularly as the president did with Obamacare, people dont trust your next plan.

More lies, just like the "CBO reports Obamacare to cost 2.3 million jobs." And the death panels. It's also plagiarism, because this article didn't appear in the Washington Post. How hard is it to link to your articles? They're all either lies or from Tea Bagger Monthly.

We interrupt our continuing coverage of Chris Christie to examine which Republicans have a better shot at the presidency if Christie is damaged goods.
It's beginning to dawn on me that Jeb Bush is probably going to be the Republican Party's nominee for president in 2016.
"Consider: With the ongoing implosion of Chris Christie's political career, the GOP establishment has lost its best hope for a candidate who could stop a libertarian-populist insurgency during the primaries. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Scott Walker the list of viable fire-breathers is longer (and less dominated by incompetents, crazies, and one-note sideshow acts) than establishment types would like.
As for the last-name problem, he says:Yes, Jeb would be freighted by bad memories of his brother's failed presidency. But he might be helped by warm memories of his father's presidency.
But American Conservatives Daniel Larison strongly disagrees:
Like his brother when he ran for president, Jeb Bush has no foreign policy experience to speak of, and to the best of my knowledge he has never shown much interest in the subject. Given his brothers disastrous record, I doubt that enough Republicans would want to take that kind of chance again.

The sad part is you believe this garbage.Try reading beyond the headlines and look at the source. The Brad Blog is nothing but a far left liberal site loaded with lies and half truths. You are one stupid individual homestead.

The Obamacare pyroclastic flow continues unabated.
More employee benefits lost.

AOL CEO:'Obamacare Is an Additional $7.1 Million Expense For Us'
"We have to look at our benefits programs very seriously," said Armstrong. "In the CEO chair, let me give you an example of the decisions we have to make as a company: Obamacare is an additional $7.1 million expense for us as a company. So we have to decide whether or not to pass that expense to employees or whether to cut other benefits."

Unlike GW Bush spending 3-4 TRILLION dollars on both bogus ,unwinnable, useless wars .Obamacare is working !
We gained nothing from the 2 wars, just thousands of deaths but Obama care helps out millions.........
Obama care is doing it's job, unlike WMD and lying to the American people about nuclear weapons in Iraq,
Mission Accomplished !
Now back to Glenn Beck on global warming and Nazi symbols scratched across a blackboard !!!!!

Charlie Crist, the Republican-turned-Democrat who is running for governor in Florida, echoed former Gov. Jeb Bush in describing what he characterizes as an extremist turn in the GOP.
"I think I'll quote Jeb Bush. He said it better than I ever could. Today's Republican Party, at least the leadership, is perceived as being anti-women, anti-minority, anti-immigrant, anti-education, anti-gay couples, anti-environment," Crist said Wednesday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Live."
"Pretty soon, there's nobody left in the room," he added.
A potential 2016 presidential candidate, Jeb Bush, who preceded Crist as governor of Florida, has said the GOP needs to alter a perception that it is the party of opposition.
"Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on," Bush said, speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference last year. "I'm here to tell you there is no 'us' or 'them.' The face of the Republican Party needs to be the face of every American, and we need to be the party of inclusion and acceptance."
Can't wait to see the GOP stuff Jeb Bush down the tea potty's throats 2012 Mitt the twit style.!!!!!!

I'd just like to take the time to thank our blunt skilled Supreme Court for allowing the Koch brother pricks to purchase our democratic way of life...thank you numb skulls for this act of pure and incredible idiocy ....you've really done a good job of protecting this sacred part of the founding fathers wish of a government of, for, and by the people of the United States....NOT.
#55967 Feb 7, 2014
Chuck and Dave Koch got tired of always having to break the law so they bought the Supreme Court and changed the law to say that any amount of money spent on candidates is simply someone practicing their first amendment rights. It was in a case called Citizens United and it took political funding back 100 years. Because, of course, as the flip-flop man said, "Corporations are people, my friend."

How might Barack Hussein Obama insult our neighbor Argentina while not representing the nations' interests? Appoint as United States Ambassador a campaign donation organizer who's never visited their country.

Argentina ambassador pick, and Obama bundler, has never been to Argentina
President Obama's foreign policy is again being questioned, only this time it's over the qualifications of the people he's appointed to carry it out.
In the latest instance, the president's nominee to be America's next ambassador to Argentina admitted during a Senate hearing that he's never been to the country.
"I haven't had the opportunity yet to be there," Noah Bryson Mamet, also an Obama political contributor, told lawmakers on Thursday. "I've traveled pretty extensively around the world, but I haven't yet had a chance."
The admission was the latest awkward Capitol Hill moment for one of Obama's diplomatic nominees. Obama bundler George Tsunis, who was tapped for ambassador to Norway, recently bungled key facts about the Scandinavian country during his Senate hearing.
#55971 Feb 7, 2014
You don't do you research too well. do you?
Past Presidents have been doing this as far back as Nixon and even before..........Most Presidents nominate their bigger fund raisers for these positions. most without even visiting or being in the country they will represent. This is old news and both parties have been doing it for years. The Obama haters just have to keep on hating when their own party has been doing it for years.
Thanks FOX. Keep up the great one sided news reports..........LOL!
