U.S. To Become World's Largest Oil Producer, Overtaking Russia

""ONDON, Oct 11 (Reuters)- The United States will become the world's largest oil producer next year - overtaking Russia - thanks to its shale oil boom which has transformed the global energy landscape, the West's energy watchdog said on Friday.

The prediction comes only days after estimates by the U.S. government showed the United States, the world's largest oil consumer, has ceded its ranking as top global oil importer to China, thanks to the shale revolution cutting import needs.

"The United States' place in the driver's seat of growth is also a throwback to decades past," the International Energy Agency said in its monthly report.

The U.S. resurgence as an oil producer is already reshuffling the cards in the game of world energy diplomacy, playing it a new hand in relations with long-term ally and top OPEC producer Saudi Arabia.

Major producers such as Russia are now forced to invest billions of dollars into new pipelines towards Asia as they can no longer rely on demand from the West, and have to deal with increasingly assertive Beijing.""

But they will never again think they can intimidate our President with threats of defunding anything.
And that's as decisive a win for Obama as the election. Perhaps more.
Maybe now they'll stop voting to repeal Obamacare in the House. I mean 40 something times??
I think the American public opinion has delivered a message they didn't quite get last election day.
Tremendous damage to the Repugnants.

It's funded, even in a shutdown. That's what's so tragic about this for Repugnants. They can't defund it.

But, but, but, you were talking about the exchanges. Those ARE HMO's.(Aren't they)?
I will agree that, yes, senior citizens are still paying about $100 a month for their Medicare Part B premium but I'm assuming it covers things not available to those on the lowest plan in the exchange (like: lab tests, surgeries, and doctor visits) and supplies (like wheelchairs and walkers). I could be wrong since I have no idea what is offered on the exchanges and there is no reason for me to check it out. IMO, it's the "looky-loos" who are jamming up the system in the first place.
The Medicare premiums are per person and vary with income.

Medicare covers only 80% of costs, so most people purchase a supplemental policy.

Typical cost for a married couple for Part B, Part D, and supplemental are at least $500-600 per month.

Granted, the coverage is far better than the exchanges, and more importantly, you can find a doctor educated in the United States.

EXCEPT in Illinois-

Windmills and Solar panels got 90 BILLION to FAILOUT from just
Obama spending-while just 60 billion, over YEARS--has reduced coal emmissions considerably!!!----

Electric utilities have already spent $60 billion to control sulfur emissions, and the investment, which continues every year, has paid off. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, sulfur dioxide emissions from electric utilities have gone down 18 percent from their 1973 peak. Taking into account that coal use by utilities has gone up dramatically during the period makes the accomplishment all the more impressive. As new, technologically advanced power plants replace older, less efficient ones, the trend toward lower sulfur dioxide emissions is expected to be enhanced.

utureGen for Illinois

The FutureGen 2.0 project represents a major economic development opportunity for Illinois and local communities. With a total investment of more than $1.3 billion dollars, it will substantially advance clean energy technology. The non-profit FutureGen Industrial Alliance and AmerenEnergy Resources will lead the project.

FutureGen 2.0 will incorporate carbon dioxide capture from the AmerenEnergy coal-fueled plant in Meredosia, Illinois after it is repowered with cutting edge, oxy-combustion clean coal technology. The carbon dioxide will be transported to a regional storage facility through a newly constructed pipeline. A visitor, research and training facility will be constructed nearby.

Construction will begin on the Meredosia power plant, the carbon dioxide pipeline and storage facility in the second half of 2012. Project completion is scheduled by the end of 2015.

The enormous succubus is the ineptness of the admin of past six years, and their INABILITY to even be able to manage within the means, the CURRENT over used and abused givverment fwee rider programs.

And in REALITY-they have NO IDEA how much or how fast it will DEPLETE what is already on unstable tables in the future.

The whole massive MESS of clueless, uncontrolled SPENDING, needs REFORMED, CAPPED and Curbed. The system can't even support itself now, let alone adding ???? UNtold amounts to it.

SHOW the "FUNDING" for THAT!

(They CAN'T..and that's why they don't want to "negotiate"...they have NOTHING solid to negotiate it with!!)
