The cultist refrain never changes. Bush administration had a memo.
So what?
Where is the memo that gave the following information: WTC, 9-11, American Airlines?
To suggest that something could have been done without specific data is just mental masturbation on the part of the cultists.
I have yet to see anything that passes for something cogency when it comes to what the plan should have been, you know, like how long international commerce should have been shut down. Can you imagine the uproar? Grounding all air transport because they had "received information" without specific information.
Nutters those cultists, one and all.
Ignore them.
What do you expect? These are the very same people that blame a President that hasn't sat in office for over five years for the problems we are facing today, while at the same time, making excuses for the President THAT HAS been sitting in the White House for five years.

Before ACA typical annual increases were averaging 15 to 20% over a 15 year period. Your employer's increases seems on par with industry standards. Based on what you're saying your employer is pocketing an extra $1700 per employee if everyone is paid like you described. That's a nice new boat at the end of the year..

Not at all. He gave us a pay increase, but we didn't get nearly what he was paying for our premiums every month.
An employer cannot give an employee a straight out check for anything. Any monetary exchange between employee and employer has to be taxed. This includes money for healthcare or bonuses such as around Christmas. Everything has to be taxed.
So he gave us an increase in hourly rate minus what it cost him to match additional SS contributions, match Medicare contributions, increase in our retirement account contributions, and then there is extra money needed for Workman's compensation and unemployment insurance.
For myself, he was paying $450.00 per month plus the huge increase in this years premium for medical insurance. For compensation, he gave me an increase of $1.50 per hour, or at the end of the month, a gross increase of about $300.00 per month based on 40 hour work weeks.
After taxes, I will probably see around $220.00 per month of that money. So in other words, because of all the taxation, I will see less than half of what my employer was paying for my healthcare coverage.
By providing medical coverage when this used to be the real America, it was pre-tax money and an individual got much more bang for his buck. Thanks to DumBama and the Democrats, even if I were able to afford an individual policy, I would have to pay it with after-tax money.
As for my company, it's a small business with way under 50 employees so my employer is not subject to any Commie Care fine. But in the last two years, our healthcare premiums increased 30% and he simply cannot keep up any longer. I'm not alone, millions of good Americans are going to face the same problems. But then again, Democrat policies are not about fixing problems, they are about buying votes.

I see a public school student joined us today; one that does not know how to use a calculator or possess moderate comprehension skills. Perhaps pictures might help:

So let's try this again: I've been working for the same company for over 20 years. My employer (like all employers) had no legal obligation to provide medical insurance coverage. He could have dropped it five years ago, ten years ago, fifteen years ago, anytime. In the past, he as been able to keep up with the premium increases, but no longer. Now why do you suppose that is?

One of the reasons DumBama is such an outstanding President is because it's never his fault. This health insurance disaster is not his fault, the crummy internet site and failures are not his fault, Fast and Furious is not his fault, Benghazi is not his fault, the terrible economy is not his fault, losing our three star credit rating is not his fault, the most government dependents in decades is not his fault, the slowest economic recovery is not his fault, the national debt is not his fault. Nothing is ever his fault.

Speaking for myself and the millions of other Americans in my position, I'm here to tell you it is his fault. It's all his fault. This moron you elected couldn't run a lemonade stand yet alone national healthcare.

The good news (unlike before the last presidential election) is that Americans are now realizing the mistake we made. All polls show it too. Next election will show it and hopefully, the next dozen or so. I seriously hope Americans will long remember the failures of Socialism in this country and the millions of lives it ruined along the way.

hey James....know what you are talking about or STFU!!! I have never once said Obama is not my president, I have never once said I approve of what Putin is doing, I have though admitted to my vote in 2008 for Obama, back when I was a registered Dem, same as YOU I suppose. I just can proudly admit now that I have changed by registration and have not repeated my mistake to vote for Obama again.
So if you don't know what you are talking about, if you aren't going to read post to find out what has been said before and therefor KNOW if what you are saying is so freakin stupid it only serves to further discredit yourself you would better be served by keeping your ignorance private instead of making it a public display like you did with your stupidity here.
And just so you know, it doesn't matter if an American like their president or agrees with their president or not...EVERYONE in the country is effected by their decisions and they are still the president of everyone in the country even if they don't like to act like it because they think they should only have to deal with people that llike them and agree with them. It would do both YOU and the president some good to realize that!!!!

traitor......you never fully supported obama anyway. i guess you support the likes o ted cruz and ted nugent. yup....stay in your camp.

Nobody from the Tea Party was supported by any Communist group. They did support somebody from the Democrat side though---both elections. I bet you can't guess who that was, so let me give you a hint: they also did an extensive praise editorial on his attempted gun grab in America.
