My wife and I just upgraded our smart phones, but took off the insurance to save on the bill; insurance that I got after I lost/someone eagerly took my brand new phone a few years back. This long overdue database will definitely deter thieves from stealing phones and probably bring down the rate of insurance.

I am surprised you aren't screaming about invasion of privacy rights on this one. Had it been under GW I am sure you would have.

MCP is a Soros TARD! This move by the cell carriers is another BS move by the Kenyan/Soros to get their noses even deeper into our business. U.S of Marxism.

She is safely tucked away in that delusional-obsessed mind of yours… but it’s good to see that you let her out for air from time to time.

I’ll leave the screaming to screamers like you… and where is the privacy issue when they ID the phone so that thieves can’t reactivate a stolen phone; what about the privacy that thieves would have access to once they get into your phone?

The Obama campaign bought her off. She's in an Obama bought place in the islands. When she tried to come back last year they got Obama out of town and paid her more.



If Vera Baker has a son, It will look like Broke Obama!

Obama healthcare law could sharply worsen U.S. deficits: study


WASHINGTON Tue Apr 10, 2012

(Reuters)- President Barack Obama's healthcare law could sharply exceed its cost-savings targets and add up to $530 billion to the federal budget deficit, a leading authority on U.S. government benefit programs said on Tuesday.

A study by Charles Blahous, a George Mason University research fellow and the Republican trustee for the Medicare and Social Security entitlement programs for the elderly, challenges the administration's contention that the 2010 law would better keep healthcare costs in line.

Known as the "Affordable Care Act," or "Obamacare," the measure to expand health insurance for millions of Americans is considered Obama's signature domestic policy achievement.

The Supreme Court is currently weighing whether Congress overstepped its authority to regulate commerce in approving the law. The justices heard arguments in the high-stakes case two weeks ago.

Research shows that the law is expected to boost net federal spending by more than $1.15 trillion and add between $340 billion and $530 billion to deficits between 2012-21.

"Relative to previous law, the (healthcare law) both exacerbates projected federal deficits and increases an already unsustainable federal commitment to health care spending," he concluded.

The analysis, first reported by the Washington Post late on Monday, also comes a month after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) cut the estimated net cost of the healthcare law by $48 billion to $1.08 trillion through 2021.

During the Christmas Holiday Obama sent Michelle and the kids to Hawaii 2 weeks before he joined them.
It was suspected that Obama went to Martinique to visit his son and Vera.

If anyone wants to impact the significant number of stolen cell phones in America, simply identify Democrats in the voter databases and preclude them from having one.
