One more time you lie. I did not say some insurance policies did not designate coverage networks. I said prior to nobamakare the health insurance she has did not determine the doctor she could use.

Here's an excellent and relevant topic for today:
A new USA Today/Pew poll is out and the most startling news to come out of the survey is the attitude of millenials and how it has changed since the election last year.
For the first time, more young people disapprove of the job Obama is doing than approve. And the gap has widened between those who support Obamacare and those who oppose it.

Struggling to stave off financial catastrophe, the Bush administration on Friday laid out a radical bailout plan with a jawdropping price tag _ a takeover of a half-trillion dollars or more in worthless mortgages and other bad debt held by tottering institutions.
Relieved investors sent stocks soaring on Wall Street and around the globe. The Dow-Jones industrials average rose 368 points after surging 410 points the day before on rumors the federal action was afoot.
A grim-faced President Bush acknowledged risks to taxpayers in what would be the most sweeping government intervention to rescue failing financial institutions since the Great Depression. But he declared, "The risk of not acting would be far higher."
The administration is asking Congress for far-reaching new powers to take over troubled mortgages from banks and other companies, including purchasing sour mortgage-backed securities. Administration officials and congressional leaders are to work out details over the weekend.
Congressional officials said they expected a request for legal authority to buy up the bad loans, at a cost in excess of $500 billion to the government. Democrats were discussing whether to try to attach middle class assistance to the legislation, despite a request from Bush to avoid adding controversial items that could delay action. An expansion of jobless benefits was one possibility.
In other major steps, the Treasury Department and Federal Reserve moved to give money-market mutual funds the same kind of federal protection, at least temporarily, that now applies to savings and checking accounts and certificates of deposit at banks. Money-market accounts sold through retail banks are already FDIC insured.
The spreading global selling panic had started to threaten some money-market funds, usually thought of as rock-solid investments. Administration officials feared a run on these funds, held by millions of Americans.
"Every American should know that the federal government continues to enforce laws and regulations protecting your money," Bush said at the White House. The 75-year-old Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation now insures savings and checking accounts and certificates of deposit up to $100,000.
Separately, the Securities and Exchange Commission acted to block short-selling in financial securities. That is a trading method that bets the value of stocks will go down. It has been blamed for accelerating the plunge in stock prices of banks and other financial institutions.
"This is a pivotal moment for America's economy," Bush said. "In our nation's histo

They should have listened. Both sides but especially yours.

Barack Hussein Obama, Raleigh, N.C., July 29, 2009:“I have been as clear as I can be. Under the reform I’ve proposed, if you like your doctor, you keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan period.

"No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what."

If Obama tells a lie big enough and long enough it, Obama will eventually believe it.

National Security Agency officials are considering a controversial amnesty that would return Edward Snowden to the United States, in exchange for the extensive document trove the whistleblower took from the agency.

An amnesty, which does not have the support of the State Department, would represent a surprising denouement to an international drama that has lasted half a year. It is particularly unexpected from a surveillance agency that has spent months insisting that Snowden’s disclosures have caused vast damage to US national security.

<quoted text>Other Presidents without a lot of real world executive experience had the brains to fill that void with experienced advisors. Obama surrounds himself with the likes of Valerie Jarrett, an evil empty suit with slumlord as her major credential.
According to several stories reportedly leaked by White House staff, Obama wasn't told "directly" about the problems with health care reform implementation.
Can you imagine the screams from the left leaning media had we substituted GWB's name for all the "I didn't know, no one told me" coming from this non-leader?
It is part of his job as chief executive to direct staff to relay all information and to create a climate in which bad news is fully conveyed.
Look at how John F. Kennedy, who also had zero executive experience, handled the Cuban missile crisis.
He learned to probe the positions of his advisers, to make sure he received accurate information and independent advice, and to ensure decisions were carried out.
What might have happened if Kennedy's team had brought to the missile crisis the modus operandi that the Obama White House brought to health care reform? Can you imagine the Kennedy White House saying lamely the president wasn't "told directly" about the Soviet missiles in Cuba?
Listen to what Obama recently told MSNBC's Chris Matthews about health care reform implementation: "The challenge ... is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around White House organization ... it actually has to do with ... these big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly."
Welcome to the presidency and the world of government, Mr. "President."
You are so right. That's the problem. The blind are leading the blind in this administration.

Former presidents did have enough insight into the job to surround themselves with the best people and the best advise. We now have political amateurs flying by the seat of their pants.

What we need is a proven businessman with strong leadership experience. Too bad we let that opportunity go by.

true, Eed, but ObamaKKKare cleverly tries to shift the blame to the insurance companies by writing rules that force the rationing of care for pure economic survival....

hence the ObamaKKKare plans have a limited supply of the worst doctors who are willing to accept patients for minimal reimbursement (basically the copay)...the insurance companies pay little or nothing until the deductible is satisfied.....and have a long waiting list for an appointment...

and if you show up without the copay in cash or credit card, forget about treatment in anything other than an emergency...because that's all the doctor gets as payment....

What did John McCain run?
What a moron.
McCain retired from the Navy as a captain in 1981 after serving in the military as a naval aviator and after graduating from the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis in 1958.

He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1982, served two terms, and elected to the U.S. Senate in 1986, winning re-election easily four times.

He made campaign finance reform one of his signature concerns which eventually led to the passage of the McCain-Feingold Act in 2002. He is also known for his work towards restoring diplomatic relations with Vietnam in the 1990s.

McCain chaired the Senate Commerce Committee and opposed spending that he considered to be pork barrel.

Compare that to an ivory tower academic community organizer and junior senator.

Barack the Magic Negro lives in D.C.
The L.A. Times, they called him that
'Cause he's not authentic like me.
Yeah, the guy from the L.A. paper
Said he makes guilty whites feel good
They'll vote for him, and not for me
'Cause he's not from the hood.
See, real black men, like Snoop Dog,
Or me, or Farrakhan
Have talked the talk, and walked the walk.
Not come in late and won!

[refrain]

Oh, Barack the Magic Negro, lives in D.C.
The L.A. Times, they called him that
'Cause he's black, but not authentically.
Oh, Barack the Magic Negro, lives in D.C.
The L.A. Times, they called him that
'Cause he's black, but not authentically.
Some say Barack's "articulate"
And bright and new and "clean."
The media sure loves this guy,
A white interloper's dream!
But, when you vote for president,
Watch out, and don't be fooled!
Don't vote the Magic Negro in -
'Cause 'cause I won't have nothing after all these years of sacrifice
And I won't get justice. This is about justice. This isn't about me, it's about justice.
It's about buffet. I don't have no buffet and there won't be any church contributions,

Strong executives "hire to their weaknesses." His cabinet with the exception of Robert Gates, was made up of legislators who had NEVER run a business or had project management experience. Remember, prior to his political career, Obama's only executive experience was the failed Annenberg Project.

'Barack Obama's most important administrative leadership experience, helming an expensive educational reform effort in Chicago that failed to produce any measurable academic gains, according to the project's own final report.

The four plus years (1995-1999) Barack Obama spent as founding chairman of the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) represent his track record as reformer, as someone who reached out in a public-private collaboration and had the audacity to believe his effort would make things better. At the time he became leader of this ambitious project to remake the public schools of Chicago, he was 33 years old and a third year associate at a small Chicago law firm, Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland.

This was a big test for him, his chance to cut his teeth on bringing hope and change to the mostly minority inner city school children trapped in Chicago schools. And he flopped big time, squandering lots of money and the time of many public employees in the process.

Given Senator Obama's lack of any other posts as leader of an organization, someone unschooled in the ways of the American media might expect that for months reporters have been poring over the records of the project to get an idea of how it managed to fail so badly. Examining the track record of the guy who wants to lead the federal government would seem to be part of the campaign beat for media organizations.'

http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/08/obamas...

The media was complaint then as it is now, in most cases. If it had been anyone else but Obama (especially a Republican), this failed project would have been front page and repeated. But then no one else with Obama's background who was not half black would have been pushed by the media to be president.
