Well, it all sounds so solvable when you put it that way. Why not just cut off the money, prosecute all drug and child support violations then you and I can just support a prison population of between 60 and 100 million.
No problem.

Why not elect somebody who can bring jobs back by creating incentives for manufacturers, repealing Obamacare and getting government out of the way of the private sector?
The chance to do that came and went. We're now stuck in the same quagmire as we've been in the past four years and it's only going to get worse.
Hopefully, the getting worse part will be the silver lining to end the progressive liberal nonsense once and for all that is poisoning the nation.
Repubs lost 2012 election and Obamacare was passed.

They lost because the Republican party is nothing more than a protest movement. They have no agenda for coping with the changing world. Woulda, coulda and shoulda whiners.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi argued late Friday that new hires under ObamaCare could threaten the private information of people trying to get health insurance.
Bondi said that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is making it easier for someone to be hired as a so-called navigator, cutting back on background checks and eliminating a fingerprinting requirement, which could make it easier for a person’s private information to fall into the wrong hands.
“Because of time constraints, HHS [is] cutting back on the requirement to become a navigator, meaning they're not going to be doing background checks. They're not going to be fingerprinting these people,” said Bondi in an interview.
“And it's more than navigators. It's people that assist the navigators. Now, these navigators will have our consumers throughout the country's most personal and private information — tax return information, Social Security information. And our biggest fear, of course, is identity theft.”
A navigator is a federal employee who helps those wanting to get insured navigate the paperwork of the new healthcare system.
“What if they've been convicted of committing identity theft or grand theft before?” asked Bondi.“They could potentially still become a navigator.”
Earlier this week, Bondi and a dozen other Republican state attorneys general sent HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius a letter calling her attention to this privacy issue and asking her to implement more stringent privacy requirements and safeguards. They’ve given Sebelius until Aug. 28 to respond.
The letter was organized by West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey and signed by attorneys general from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas.
Bondi said she wants to know who will be in charge of monitoring the navigators, who is going to be liable if someone's identify is stolen, and who is responsible for educating the American public and the navigators on fraud prevention.

Argued Friday night___on FOX News. TeaParty Pam can be expected to tote the TeaParty banner until it interferes with her career.

BTW it was Pam who benched Norm Wolfinger and appointed fellow righty Angela Corey to investigate/prosecute George Zimmerman.

What you are witnessing is the fundamental transformation of America into a socialist state. There can be no doubt. However this is not reversible. As technology replaces lower paying jobs (manual labor will be all but gone) the need for a well educated population will necessitate great change in the way things are done today. A smarter more rational mind is a mind that will reject the herd mentality. All the problems of today will be gone in ten years. Humans have a distinct inability to project out the causes and effects on their lives that technology will have.

yes they do.

but they don't vote for republicans.

it's only poor white folks who can't see that voting for republicans is not in their best interest.

so you can't blame blacks for a state being a loser red state.

Which would you rather pay?
If I was in the 20-40 year old range and working steady at $50,000 or more a year then I'd find purchasing a basic ,,minimum healthcare plan in the new health insurance exchange at around $250 dollars to be a bargain! I get a good insurance plan starting out on my work life career and save $200 bucks that I don't have to pay the government in 'penalties'. As a young , working , guy with an active social life ,I can use that extra 200 bucks!

Drop out of the technology grid , if you feel so strongly about it. There are many alternative living communities , many religious orders and hippie communes, that maintain self-sufficient ,inclusive and sustainable societies with little or no outside dependency.

Good morning. Sorry it took me so long to respond. I'm actually in Chicago at the moment and have little time for the computer. Conservatives are bobble heads who nod approval at anything expressed by FOX or hate talk radio. They are not smart enough to look for the truth nor do they care.

Interesting representation of the perspective of an average "dumb American".
The average "smart American" doesn't demonize government.

Obama himself is not allowing ObamaKKKare to run its course, because that would sink the DemoKKKrats in 2014.
Eliminating the employer mandate, eliminating the cap, and putting premium subsidies on the honor system, all without benefit of legislation.
Come on now, you know better than that. Obama did not "eliminate" the employer mandate or the cap. He caved into the whining businesses by giving some insurers and employers a one-year grace period to get their act together. Naturally that affects the premium subsidies since a person isn't eligible if an employer has offered “affordable” coverage. I suppose that leaves 2014 open to "the honor system" allowing dishonest people to lie in 2014 about their enrollment but I trust that would never even occur to the average citizen. Must be a Republican thing...always looking for a loophole of which they can take advantage.

Also, unskilled labor jobs are shrinking and minorities who once relied on these jobs have few other options.
As long as we keep taxing manufacturers out of the country, that's not going to change. At least until common sense is restored.
