Oh, yess I have a job. Yes I have medical Benefits however, its premiums have gone up by about $3,000 since ObamaCare was upheld.
I understand that this is for the nation, however, it affects me here.
I understand one thing real well and that is: You liberals will begin dropping Obama like a hot potato when it starts affecting you wallet. Its fixing to. As far as Medicare, it use to be pretty good but with the 500,000,000 (Million) dollars Obamacare took out of it, there is less to go around. Have to stop paying drcs. so much. Well guess what, Use to all Drs took Medicare. Not now, They are quiting. How does that affect you old gal. It is coming,,, I am very afraid.
Actually, it hasn't affected me at all because my Dr. hasn't accepted Medicare in years, if he ever did. So, because I like him and I don't want to change Doctors until I have to, I pay him out of pocket.
And if you're paying that much more for your Healthcare Premiums , that's the Insurance Company, NOT Obamacare, causing that...trying to gouge as much profit as they can before they can't, would be my guess!
If you have Medical Benefits on your job, you're already luckier than most Workers to begin with, so what are you complaining about?

What percentage of the Premium does your Employer pay, and what percentage of your Medical Care does your Insurance pay?

Since Nobody can sign up for Obamacare until October...and then, it's only for certain parts of it, explain to me why you're already paying Premiums for coverage that you don't have?

You wouldn't be lying to us, now would you?

No. The cause of the housing market bust was the government mandating banks to lend money to those who could not repay the loans. Jimmy Carter and Community Reinvestment Act along with Clinton upping the ante on it.
So Wall Street, purchasing the vast majority of home loans, bundling them into investment grade securities, submitting them (in some cases multiple times) to the ratings agencies until they got the "right" rating, selling them to unsuspecting investors and then betting against the success of those investments using AIG to do so.....had nothing to do with the collapse of housing prices and the resulting financial crisis. Right ! And Obama is a Muslim, he wasn't born in the USA, the moon landing never took place (because it is made of green cheese), Bush was a wonderful President and Republicans really care about women and the poor !
I have some "investment grade" swampland...ooops I mean quality residential real estate I would like to sell you. Want to see some pictures ?

I'll have to agree with most of your post, but they seem to be determined to make this Country fail and that...to me, is nothing less than a Traitor! So, to be divided from a bunch of Traitors whose one goal, by their own admission, is to destroy the Nation, isn't a Bad thing in my way of seeing it. Actually, I see it as fighting the "Enemy Within" and it's a Battle we have to win or we won't have a Country to worry about...that I absolutely believe!
IMO, Obama's greatest Fault is that he's not "Tough Enuff" and that he's too much into compromising. You can't compromise with those who's only focus, is to destroy YOU and this Nation! They only see it , as they have stated right on this Forum many times, as a sign of weakness. It's actually a sign of Great Strength of Character and Intelligence, but they don't understand such things because those are Unknown Qualities to them. Therefore, you have to fight fire with fire, if you ever intend to end it once and for all.
The TEApublicans have prolonged this Recovery and we have ALL suffered, needlessly, because of THEM...and I, for one, am tired of putting up with their ignorant Crap!
......and Linda just to add to what you are talking about, some of the fine people of Chattanooga......people like Pam McAllister are bitching that Air force One wasted $160.00 by refueling at Wilson Air rather than at TAC Air where the military gets a discount on jet fuel.
.
Now if I'm the one that is in charge of President Obama's security the last thing I would do is always land the President at a known site where he can get a discount on jet fuel.

Oh, get real! Anybody that knows anything about it, knows that is NOT true!

We're right BELOW Costa Rica and right above Slovenia in the quality of our Health Care...#37 or #67, I can't remember which, from the best quality Countries, but very close to having the highest cost, if not THE highest cost!

You're familiar with Costa Rica, aren't you...you know, where you supposedly have your Vacation Hut?

That poor quality combined with the high cost of that poor quality, and the Greedy Insurance Companies raising the cost of Premiums drastically and frequently, is the reason that SOMETHING had to be done, or NOBODY would have been able to afford Medical Insurance for very much longer!
Everybody that has kept up with it, at all, knows all about these problems that I named and why something had to be done. The Greedy Insurance Companies had to be reigned in, in some way.
The Gov't. could NOT afford to be gouged any longer for it's Employees and it certainly couldn't afford to pick up the tab for Everybody else that simply wouldn't have the money to pay for their Private Premiums...not with them tripling about every 3 months!
And the Gov't couldn't regulate the Insurance Companies to stop their gouging, because of you Far Right Wingers hollering about "Capitalism", and screaming "Socialism" at the top of your lungs! So, YOU gave the Gov't no other choice but to do what it did, and now you're hollering about that, too!

YOU caused Obamacare, NOW LIVE WITH IT! You simply CANNOT think well enough ahead, about the consequences of your actions, so you scream and holler about the very things that YOU cause! AND, you NEVER learn from your mistakes, because you keep doing the same thing over and over, again! Then, when you realize how badly you've screwed up, You blame it all on the Democrats!

You THINK you want your "Capitalism", but you sure don't like it, when you get it! "Capitalism" is what took the Regulations off the Insurance Industry and allowed them to go crazy with their "gouging" in their Pricing! When are you ever going to learn???...SMH...

<quoted text> Well, in some ways I agree that we haven't seen this level of obstruction....then again, remember when Clinton won ? The Republicans began immediately with Travelgate, followed by Whitewatergate, and a half-dozen more "scandals" which resulted in endless investigations, a special prosecutor and eventual impeachment.
Remember the Newt Gingrich speakership ? The collapse of Hillarycare ? Through it all, Clinton's approval ratings kept IMPROVING !
I have asked myself why and I always come up with one answer....the economy. Obama has stopped the bleeding in the economy, but it is far from booming and that fact is holding down his approval ratings, compared to Clinton's. Without widespread approval numbers, Republicans feel empowered to block anything Obama proposes, and that further lowers his approval. In short, Obama is caught between a rock and a hard place.
I was tickled when one of our resident tea partiers reported that homeownership in America was fallen under Obama. That just might have happened because there is no support in congress to help renters to buy homes, since the tea party blamed those who bought homes in the housing bubble and couldn't afford them, with the economic collapse. Naturally, the tea party exonerated Wall Street, which was the real cause of the collapse.....
Now the tea partiers can have it both ways. They can block government help for Americans to buy their first home, while blaming Obama's policies for the drop in homeownership.
That takes some nerve, something tea partiers have no lack of !
Well, it's lunchtime and I am almost too nauseated to eat reading some of this crap. An individual couldn't purposely try to be any more incorrect than what is posted here and it doesn't take a whole lot of research to prove this.

Obama has stopped the economy from bleeding? What economy are you referring to? Have you not seen the recent revisions to our GDP and the release of the latest GDP data? In case you missed it, here they are -

http://money.cnn.com/2013/06/26/news/economy/...

Our GDP remains stagnant at near recessionary levels, our unemployment rate is still very high, there are now more people relying on government assistance than there are working, etc. Yes, the stock market has recovered. Why - because of the Fed, not Obama. The Fed has help interest rates stay low and has been printing money temporarily stemming the devastation from happening. Obama had nothing to do with this. And this can't continue forever. Look what happened to the stock market when the Fed hinted at ceasing their low interest rate policy. The stock market took its worst loss this year. Yes, housing has made a bit of a recovery. Why - because of the Fed, not Obama. The low interest rates and low demand are what has sparked a slight bump in the housing market. Exactly what has Obama done to facilitate any housing market recovery?

Why is there no support in Congress for renters to buy homes? Because this is the one thing that is largely responsible for getting us in this mess in the first place. Go ask Barney Frank how this policy has worked out in the past.

How on earth you can advocate the exact same scenario that caused a lot of our problems for strictly political reasons is beyond me. There was no obstruction during the Clinton years. Whitewater and Travelgate had nothing to do with our economy. You are simply dreaming up reasons to incite hate among conservatives. There has never been an economic policy that has worked simply because it is a conservative or liberal policy. Economic policies that work are usually the ones that make sense. Your points sir, make no sense, hence the reason myself and others question your self proclaimed status as a business owner. Profits are not optional in a business. Every statement you have made is contrary to this one fact.

They will not work together. It is my way or the highway attitude for both of them.. Classic example : look at dirty Harry---he won't let anything from the congress be voted on in the senate and vice-versa.
One thing is it is plain that Obamacare is going to affect everyone and cost everyone dearly. It is almost here.
You really have no clue how Congress works or even what a Majority means , even though it's been explained to you many, many times! Nor do you understand the differences between the TEApublicans and the Democrats attitude toward governing!

One more thing, I have NEVER known a Business "Owner" in my entire Life, to sit there and watch the clock, waiting for Lunchtime to roll around! That's a "first" for me! And it's definitely "proof" that you're NOT a Business "OWNER", but you like to play one of Topix, don't you?
If you're even a Business Employee, you're not worth a Crap because you obviously nothing but a "Slacker" who isn't pulling your share of the Load...or paying any attention to what you're doing ...you're too busy watching the clock, waiting for lunchtime to roll around, so you can do even less, for a half hour, or so!

The only possible way you could be a Business Owner, is if you inherited it from your Father and if that's the case, you're going to lose everything that he gave his blood, sweat, and tears into building up! That's a pure tragedy, but it happens more than not, because of the Lazy, Entitled Generation X that think the World owes them something!
