Nobama promised healthcare for all, what a pipe dream.
The AHCA is designed to fail. I am afraid it is designed to put the government in charge of everything that has to do with healthcare. That would be a single payer system.
What is even scarier, if that is possible,that the whole healthcare system in this country may collapse and we will all have no healthcare.

In 2012, total U.S. trade with foreign countries was $4.9 trillion. This consisted of $2.194 trillion in exports and $2.734 trillion in imports of both goods and services. This makes the U.S. is the world's third largest exporter, after the European Union (EU) and China, and the world's second largest importer, after the EU.
What Does the U.S. Export?:
More than two-thirds of U.S. exports are material goods ($1.547 trillion). One-third of all goods exported ($527 billion) is capital equipment. The largest sub-categories are industrial machines ($46 billion), commercial aircraft ($45 billion), and semiconductors ($42 billion). Capital equipment also includes medical equipment, telecommunications and computer equipment.
Another third is industrial supplies and equipment ($501 billion). The largest sub-categories are fuel oil ($60 billion), petroleum products ($57 billion) and chemicals ($35 billion). Industrial supplies also includes plastics, gold and steel.
Nine percent of U.S. goods exports are automobiles ($146 billion).
The fourth largest category is consumer goods ($182 billion). This includes pharmaceuticals ($48 billion), cell phones ($22 billion) and gem diamonds ($18 billion).
The smallest category ($133 billion) is foods, feeds and beverages. This includes soybeans ($26 billion), meat/poultry ($18 billion) and corn ($10 billion).(Source: U.S. Census, Exhibit 7. Exports by End-Use Category, 2012)
The remaining third of exports are services ($632 billion). Travel passenger services was the largest single category, at $128 billion. Next was royalties and license fees, at $121 billion. Passenger fares totaled $40 billion, while other transportation was $43 billion. Government and military contracts was $20 billion. The rest was miscellaneous private services, which includes financial services.(Source: U.S. Census, Exhibit 3, U.S. Services by Major Category -- Exports, 2012).

Or perhaps Mr or Mrs Galore saw the ECI index which shows America falling 6 places down from 1998-2008 to 13th place. Can't find how far we've fallen since Obama has been is office but best guess would probably be another couple drops or more.

ECI Index:

"Hausmann and Hidalgo propose the concept of ECI not only as a descriptive measure, but also as a predictive tool for economic growth. According to their models, compiled in their Atlas of Economic Complexity (2011),[1] the ECI is far more accurate in predicting GDP growth than the traditional governance measures such as those provided by the World Bank."

Still no answers or accountability from Eric Holder or the Obama Administration on Fast and Furious. Another crime committed with a Fast and Furious gun. Perhaps I had read or heard about this murder and people assaulted, but was not made aware by the media that it was another Fast and Furious gun being used.

<quoted text>Obamacare will be dead in the water, if amnesty is granted to illegal immigrants. Just like the queers gettin married opened the border up to more queers to come over here by marriage. When they grant these 11 milllion illegals amnesty. Then they're whole dang family can come over here and according to that moron Jeb Bush they have very large families. These illegal 11 million immigrants will quickly turn in to 50 or 60 million virtually overnight if this garbage bill is passed into law as a whole and not broken up. We followed blindly behind Reagan and Bush only to now watch as Obama attempts to finish what they started. It is not a hate thing or racial thing to not want to give your country away to people that hate you. Americans have stayed quiet for to long. Most Americans are disgusted with the way are government is run by both parties. Most just think it's pointless to fight the government, because they're just too big. I don't think this is the Country that George Washington imagined, nor do I think he would have stood for it.
Hey.. We agree on a lot if things.

Illegals should be deported and their employers put in prison.

Just thank, that'll save the $30 Billion they want to waste hiring more Border Patrol Agents to play "Red Rover" and "Ollie Ollie in Free with illegals.

As for ObamaCare - most Americans want it, or they want something even more radical. They're tired of being the knuckleheads who pay the highest costs for medical services in the industrialized world.

Maybe someday we'll be as smart as the rest of the industrialized world and turn the instance companies' profits into better medical care - like we did with that's socialist Medicare.

Now General,

As a government employee collecting a government check and benefits,(and we understand free use of a government horse), perhaps you shouldn't be claiming to know all that much about the private sector.

Is it true that after "The War", you still collected a government check ?

<quoted text>Sorry BigDave1, as usual we all know that the history of the modern world only began in January of 2009, course the events of the pre-modern world did have a spillover effect as we can see in the chart at this link...

Oh my gosh, look what started to creep up in 2007, what in the world was going on....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Recession
According to the U.S. National Bureau of Economic Research (the official arbiter of U.S. recessions) the recession began in December 2007 and ended in June 2009.[16][17] US mortgage-backed securities, which had risks that were hard to assess, were marketed around the world. A more broad based credit boom fed a global speculative bubble in real estate and equities, which served to reinforce the risky lending practices.[18][19]

The bad financial situation was made more difficult by a sharp increase in oil and food prices. The emergence of sub-prime loan losses in 2007 began the crisis and exposed other risky loans and over-inflated asset prices. With loan losses mounting and the fall of Lehman Brothers on September 15, 2008, a major panic broke out on the inter-bank loan market. As share and housing prices declined, many large and well established investment and commercial banks in the United States and Europe suffered huge losses and even faced bankruptcy, resulting in massive public financial assistance.
What ?

History existed prior to 2009 ?

You must be crazy.

Next thing you know you'll be claiming our Right Wing presidents have doubled and tripled the debt, and one inherited a balanced budget and created a 1.4 Trillion Dollar deficit- not counting an additional $ 6 Trillion Dollar debt for an illegal war in some God-Forsaken place called Iraq.

Now that would be really crazy.

Real GDP growth rate

But this ranking shows how bad Obama has been for our economy.

America at # 133, behind Belize and Estonia but ahead of Poland, Fiji, Lebanon, and Eygpt.

Thanks Obama and left wing radicals, you have ruined America.

By claiming Obama is a right winger, he can disassociate himself from Obama. Probably the only thing keeping him from going to the nuthouse, or shooting himself.

If I had voted for Obama, I would shoot myself. Would be kinda nice if those who voted for him would do so. Would save America a ton of money supporting them.

Wow, Holder was held in contempt of Congress. I'm sure that was a real comfort to the Terry family. At least Congress didn't send him to bed without his supper.

Just wondering how hypocritical those arguing against ObamaCare are allowed to be.
And since Obamacare is the greatest thing since sliced bread, I ask you again - why wasn't four years long enough to implement it, why is Obama delaying the employer mandate?

This Filmmaker on Hannity has been blocked at every turn, to educate the American people on the iminent danger that we are in. We have muslim terrorists makin pans as we speak to attack the U.S.A. via the mexican border. You can check his website out at theycometoamerica.com . I'm not a fan of Hannity, but this link is worth checking out as well as the film that this filmaker made. It will scare the average american if they knew the danger we were in by the open border we have. It's not if anymore, it's when.
