Barack Obama, our next President

do you think journalists might convert to unbiased reporting when their health insurance plans become subpar beginning in 2014?
or when their dog can get a hip replacement in less time than they can?
or when their kids graduate college with debt and there are still no jobs but plenty of "free" health insurance while they play Xbox?
So only then does a hypocrite like you really care. I suspect the Republicans as usual had attachments for the rich in there, so we had to sort all of their fat out of the bill.

In other news Chrysler reports 4th quarter earnings of $1.7 billion the company's best performance since the bailout.
Also__there's a chance that the DOW could bust 14,000 this afternoon. Some analysts predict 15,500 by mid summer when the run will level off.
Chrysler is owned by who? Fiat? I believe they are an Italian company? Better hope Ben says he is going to keep printing money this afternoon if you want that to happen. If he says the printing presses are being turned off watch for a major slide.

Erick Erickson....

I Don’t Like Marco Rubio’s Plan

On the specific plan, for lack of legislation, it is clearly written by a group of men who seemingly love government, but do not love free markets, small businesses, or individuals. It is a plan based on faith in government, not free enterprise or the American people.

you forgot to note the unpopularity of stated republican policies.
you wingnuts always leave that out of your excuse meme.
Obama and the Dems have us on the path to becoming New Greece. the unintended consequences of a whole country being supported by a redistributionist government:

'ATHENS, Greece -- Fireplaces were long a status symbol for Greece's up-and-coming middle class, like the second car and the flat-screen TV. Now, they are increasingly their owners' only defense against the encroaching winter cold.

A steep increase in heating costs has led many Greeks to switch from heating oil to wood-burning. But the price of using cheaper fuel is growing.

Illegal loggers are slashing through forests already devastated by years of summer wildfires. Air pollution from wood smoke is choking the country's main cities. And there has been an increase in blazes caused by carelessly attended woodstoves.

(Three children died in a northern village last month when a fire gutted the home of their grandparents, who had recently changed from oil-fueled central heating to a wooden stove to save money.

In Athens, the capital, officials have warned of severe health risks from the low-lying smog that smothers the city at night, when fireplaces and woodstoves burn at full blast in poorly insulated homes. Greece's leading medical association is demanding urgent action to clean the air. But those warnings have largely been ignored for a simple reason: Burning wood provides the same warmth as heating oil, for roughly half the cost.

For the past three years, the country has been wracked by its worst financial crisis since the end of World War II. LIVING STANDARDS HAVE PLUMMETED, PENSIONS HAVE BEEN SLASHED AND A QUARTER OF THE WORKFORCE IS UNEMPLOYED, FOLLOWING DEEPLY RESENTED CUTBACKS DEMANDED IN RETURN FOR INTERNATIONAL BAILOUTS SHIELDING GREECE FROM TOTAL RUIN.

The heating crisis was triggered by taxation changes, and made desperate by financial woes. For years, fuel for vehicles was taxed more heavily than heating oil. That encouraged crooked traders to sell heating fuel for use in vehicles and pocket the difference.

Hoping to boost faltering revenues and foil tax fraud, the government this year harmonized taxes on vehicle fuel and heating oil, which now costs about 40 percent more than last winter, although lower-income residents of colder areas get a rebate.

Critics say the move backfired due to a drastic decline in sales.
"The fact that the price of petrol has greatly increased, while incomes are shrinking to an unbearable extent, creates a vast problem with heating in Greece," said lawmaker Thomas Psyrras from the Democratic Left party - a junior partner in Greece's conservative-led coalition government. "People who live abroad imagine that we have sunshine all year round, but that's not the case."

Temperatures have dropped below freezing in much of the country this winter, while snow fell in central Athens this month.
STRATOS PARADIAS, HEAD OF THE HELLENIC PROPERTY FEDERATION THAT REPRESENTS PROPERTY OWNERS, SAYS MANY CITY DWELLERS HAVE BEEN LEFT WITHOUT ANY CENTRAL HEATING. "THERE ARE SOME WHO ARE COMPLETELY UNABLE TO PAY THE COSTS DUE TO THE CRISIS," HE SAID.

BUT EVEN THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD OIL, OR THE SLIGHTLY CHEAPER NATURAL GAS, CAN BE LEFT SHIVERING, DUE TO THE COMMUNAL NATURE OF EACH APARTMENT BLOCK'S CENTRAL HEATING. IT MEANS THAT IF ENOUGH OWNERS WANT TO GO WITHOUT, THEIR DECISION IS BINDING FOR ALL RESIDENTS.
While electric heating is another option, most consumers perceive wood as cheaper - especially since household power bills are set to increase about 10 percent this year.

It's hard to estimate how many people have abandoned heating oil for wood. Distributors say sales of heating oil are nearly 80 percent down this winter, and new firewood yards have mushroomed all over Athens.

Obama's popularity and his vilifying class warfare, is similar to

Hitler was only popular among the rabid right and their hatred of the Jews, liberals, etc. Amongst the general population he never got more than 38% of the vote.

Somtimes you have to shut up, swallow your pride and accept that you're wrong dumbazz. It's not giving up. It's called growing up moron.

the Rubio plan....

The first policy fiction is a secure border. The White House will claim the border is secure. The Republicans will claim it is not. The border will never be made impenetrable and we will proceed down this distracting, argumentative line to no end.

The second policy fiction is premised on the “jobs Americans won’t do” which is more accurately described as “jobs Americans won’t do at that price point.” Employers must prove that no American could be found to do the job the illegal alien would otherwise do. This is impossible, absurd, and turns employers to liars in the pursuit of running their business. The aggrieved can turn on the employers and potentially cost them all sorts of civil and criminal penalties.

The most significant policy fiction is premised on the idea of reform. The plan does nothing to address the black market for unskilled, low cost migrant work. It does nothing to deal with the long delays in the present immigration system. It does nothing to actually solve our immigration problems, but hides behind the construct of “comprehensive” reform. Along the way, it potentially adds more people to already overwhelmed entitlement programs, but then that too is another kicked can.

The desire to “just do something” overwhelms Washington too much. This immigration plan gives orgasmic relief to that desire, but in all the hype and show does nothing to address the real needs of employers and the hopes and dreams of those still longing to come to United States whose wait will now most likely be extended and grow even more complex.

Immigration is an issue that keeps hispanic voters from trusting the GOP. Many call it a “gateway” issue. I get that. But pandering in the name of a solution does not actually fix the problem. This is just another policy debate the Democrats can use to get the GOP to fight itself. The GOP should pivot to actually fixing the immigration problem, not just addressing the here and now.
