<quoted text>Oh give me a break. It's not "the truth" if the media doesn't report it.
But I am most grateful that the media took time (a 5,400 word expose in the Washington Post,for example) to talk about Mitt Romney pinning a kid down when he was a teenager and cutting his hair. Or talking about why he wouldn't try to persuade the 47% who are career entitlement taking Democrats to vote for him.
These were front page newsworthy and political earthquakes.
You act like Obama's real identity and history are equally important. Get your priorities straight and thank God that the liberal media knows what is best for you and will help to transform America to grow that 47% of takers into a majority. Plenty of people who live in Detroit or Greece or Zimbabwe are perfectly happy.
You can keep the sarcasm. This ain't rock n roll records. The message is the same whether you play it forward or, backward! Nearly all republican states are welfare states, receiving more from the gov't than they put into it. Those are who you should be calling takers. Only 1 democratic state receives more than they put in. Now let hear your bullshit theory on this!

How many insurance companies and rightwing run companies are taking advantage of the public's ignorance about healthcare reform to hike fees and pass along crappier health plans to employees and then of course blame healthcare reform?
Anyone have an answer for me?
The public's ignorance is what keeps us in office.

Obamacare contains a blizzard of mandates and regulations that will make health insurance more costly.

One of the most significant is its caps on out-of-pocket insurance costs, such as co-pays and deductibles. Section 2707(b) of the Public Health Service Act, as added by Obamacare, requires that “a group health plan and a health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage may not establish lifetime limits on the dollar value of benefits for the any participant or beneficiary.” Annual limits on cost-sharing are specified by Section 1302(c) of the Affordable Care Act; in addition, starting in 2014, deductibles are limited to $2,000 per year for individual plans, and $4,000 per year for family plans.

So why the delay? Sure, caps on out of pocket costs sound great but insurance has to be paid for somehow. These cost caps result in skyrocketing premium costs, something Democrats can't afford going into the 2014 midterm elections. This is also another case of "needing more time" to set up the proper resources and tools to implement new rules properly.

These mandates have already had drastic effects on a number of colleges and universities, which offer inexpensive, defined-cap plans to their healthy, youthful students. Premiums at Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, N.C., for example, rose from $245 per student in 2011-2012 to between $2,507 in 2012-2013. The University of Puget Sound paid $165 per student in 2011-2012; their rates rose to between $1,500 and $2,000 for 2012-2013. Other schools have been forced to drop coverage because they could no longer afford it.

The reason for the delay?“Federal officials said that many insurers and employers needed more time to comply because they used separate companies to help administer major medical coverage and drug benefits, with separate limits on out-of-pocket costs. In many cases, the companies have separate computer systems that cannot communicate with one another.”

But the important thing is that all this is free. And I am so annoyed that Sandra Fluker is backing my opponent. Why doesn't she like my special pictures as much?

The initial reports were misleading, in the end they got it right. Is it policy to send more people into an already explosive situation? Did we have support near enough to make a difference? Do you in fact have the same intelligence they had at the time? They made a judgment call and most likely the correct one, why rush more troops into an unknown situation?

Common sense say err on the side of caution or you could end up invading/destroying/rebuilding an entire country for no reason, see: Iraq.

At least on occasion you can be honest. You are right, the boy president, nobama, did nothing to stop the sequester, he is indeed impotent. It was his way or the highway, he offered nothing. he just wanted a few more billion to piss away.
Yopu do realize even with the sequester spending in the bill is still up more than 4%.

Too bad that you can't ever be honest so it is really a waste of Dave's time to bother with you at all. The Obama Administration has tried numerous times to move past the sequestration with talks with the Congress on reasonable budget proposals--but the republicans have not been able to even agree to talk about the budget because they are too deeply divided and weak in their own party make any binding decisions thus they do nothing--exactly the disastrous anti-government Tea Party plan (any foreign terrorist group must envy the Paul Ryan's Tea Party diabolical tactics to shut down the U S government, weaken our defense , and injure untold thousands of Americans . The Tea Party is the real al qaeda sleeper cell lurking in every American neighborhood and roaming the halls of Congress .

All the bullshit additives, fillers, & poison added in fast food &, you say it's for the good of humanity. You have to downgrade all the way to mom & pop stores to find people doing shit for the good of humanity anymore in America. Everything's about a bottom line profit, bottom line! All the while, people are getting sick ( HBP, diabetes )etc... Dying a slow &, miserable death. America just downgraded from the world's most obese country a month or 2 ago. True, nobody forces anyone to eat their products but, no one forces drug addicts to use either. Your thought process is far too miniscule too digest such a thing. You allow some political bureaucrat to tell you right from wrong. You're no different than a child, you need &, depend on someone else's guidance. Yet so quick to call names... True signs of a clown &, I don't mean that in a good way! You're a zombie in the movies, you exist but, you're far from living!

In fact, I can prove it's an agent of the contrary. Medical Marijuana! See the problem in this country is, when your uncle Sam can't profit from your success, he deems it against the law. Maybe I'm tripping or, you definitely are but, I've never heard of " Medical Pizza." America is so Fucked up, people have marketed &, soldfoods without glucosamine to people dying from obesity complications. Charging folks triple the price for food that helps them with their problem is pure evil! The fact that you believe that , profiting from a sick person's pain is not for the good of humanity! Yeah, I've hustled drugs for a living. Again the drugs are medical miracles until they're sold at the underground level. Then they're of the opposite in substance. Cocaine & heroin, are both medicine when in their pill forms but, deadly in their powder form. Yeah, well in mybook, 1+1 always 2. You can think what you want. Doesn't change the facts!
What a dumbfck. Marijuana is a contributing factor to many deaths each year. Quit being a dumbass and look at the big picture. Lung cancer, heart disease, obesity, traffic deaths. Lets get rid of mcdonalds so all the potheads buy salad when they get the munchies. You are one stupid liberal.
