Where's the jobs, Dopey ?

Oh, here they are:

The $5.3-billion Keystone XL Pipeline Project is the largest infrastructure project currently proposed in the United States. Construction of the 1,179-mile pipeline will require 9,000 skilled American workers. The project will provide jobs for welders, mechanics, electricians, pipefitters, laborers, safety coordinators, heavy equipment operators and other workers who rely on large construction projects for their livelihoods.

In addition to construction jobs, an estimated 7,000 U.S. jobs are being supported in manufacturing the steel pipe and the thousands of fittings, valves, pumps and control devices required for a major oil pipeline.

TransCanada has contracts with more than 50 suppliers across the U.S., including companies in Texas, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Indiana, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Ohio, Arkansas, Kansas, California and Pennsylvania.

TransCanada employed 4,844 Americans in Oklahoma and Texas on construction of the $2.3-billion Gulf Coast Pipeline Project, which is expected to be complete by the end of this year.

Construction and development of the Keystone XL and Gulf Coast Pipeline Projects is anticipated to generate $20 billion in economic impact in the United States, including $99 million in local government revenues and $486 million in state government revenues during construction.

The pipelines will also generate an estimated $5 billion in additional property taxes during their operational life.

the better question is how much less they would charge if prostate coverage was removed. There are some things that don't make sense to separate by demographics, but when your dealing with gender based care, its easy and cheap. Your just too damn enamored with Obama to think logically.
You're once again lost on the subject of health insurance pal__just sayin.

As a reminder, this is a very old thread, with comments from years ago__seems you get dumber as time passes.

Who is paying for your health coverage? Do you even have health coverage?

Second of all, you are a liar. Comparable coverage would not be double in the exchanges unless, of course, you are only considering her share of the premiums.
Really, Dopey? Were you there looking over my shoulder? No, you're a liar like Il Douche, the liar in chief. Everything about Obamakare is a lie, gawd you're dumb.

He lied, then lied again and again and again.

When will anyone save $2500 a year like the liar in chief promised?

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
Why did Hillary Clinton lie to Congress, lie to the entire country, and lie to Ty Woods' father standing right in front of Ty Woods' casket?
What evidence did the White House or State Department have of any spontaneous demonstration that never happen that Obama lied about for two weeks?

Il Douche " if you like your policy you'll be able to keep it"

was that a lie or not?

21,000 pages of regulations for Obamakare, so far , and dimwitted dems think somehow this monstrosity can work.

I know, I know (hand waving violently in the air):

1. Bush pulled the United States out of the Kyoto protocol which set requirements for 38 large nations to lower greenhouse gas emissions in order to combat climate change.

2. He ignored several warnings about Osama bin Laden.

3. He escalated the war on drugs, incarcerating minorities at a record pace for nonviolent, drug related offenses.

4. Instead of embracing the help of our major allies after 9/11, he declared a global war on terrorism and stated,“you are either with us or against us“.(Basic Republican mantra)

5. He deceived America by creating a false narrative that Iraq was an ally of Afghanistan in their war of terror against the U.S.

6. He lied about the scope and magnitude of Iraq’s weapons.

7. He ignored the United Nations and launched an illegal preemptive war.

8. His staff leaked the name and endangered the life of Valerie Plame in retaliation for the Op-Ed pieced penned by her husband, Joseph C. Wilson, a writer for the New York Times, which said there was no credible nuclear threat from Iraq.

9. He exonerated Scooter Libby.

10. He forced American taxpayers to foot the bill for hundreds of no-bid contracts to some of the world’s most powerful military contractors. VP Dick Cheney and his company Halliburton made a healthy $39.5 billion profit.

11. He destroyed America’s standing in the world by ignoring the international ban on torture.

12. He created spiraling federal deficits.

13. He instated the reckless and unnecessary Bush tax cuts. The biggest experiment in supply-side trickle down economics in history, the Bush tax cuts resulted in catastrophe, blowing a hole in the federal budget and leading to unprecedented social economic inequality.

14. Whether blocking stem cell research, loosening environmental regulations, saying that evolution is a theory, and cutting Pell Grants, he never stopped trying to make America dumber and less healthy.

15. He destroyed the American middle-class. Median household incomes declined by 4.2%, social economic inequality reached epidemic proportions, and the middle-class took on more debt than at any time since the Great Depression. His policies led to 8 million Americans falling below the poverty line, 3.5 million of those being children.

16. His policies led to the 2007 Great Recession.

17. He stood by and watched as 35 million uninsured Americans risked death and financial ruin without proper and affordable health care.

Well, beginning in the early 1980's Ronald Reagan was elected President and immediately cut the marginal tax rate for the wealthiest Americans to 28%, fired the Air Traffic Controllers and crushed their Union, to give just two anti-Labor,anti-Middle Class policy examples--and Bush W when elected in 2000 by U S Supreme Court decree in Bush v. Gore ruling) immediately gave another whopping tax cut to the wealthiest Americans. And when President Obama ,in trying to be fair to the Middle Class, gives them a 2% payroll tax cut that added $120 million dollars to average workers expendable income (not even close to what a very small U S Corporations' CEO makes),Republicans raised holy hell and screamed that we can't afford it. Right. We could afford to spend over $1 Trillion dollars on George W Bush's two overseas wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we can't afford to give back to our own American workers a small tax cut?
What a clown you are, Reagan has been out of office for 26 years, nice try, the article lays it out quite clearly, Il Douche and the fed are propping up WS and the 1%, you , sir, are a fool.

Wealth rebounds — but mostly for the wealthy
By Rick Newman
12 hours ago
The Exchange

America is rich again — if you add up all the money. But a familiar, unhappy tale is playing out as the nation recovers the household wealth lost from 2007 to 2012.

How many gave hugely to Il Douche?

Shipping jobs overseas?

Here. Dopey, Il Douche supporters:

Here's 2 examples of how hypocritical Hollywood supporters have shipped American jobs overseas:

DreamWorks Animation formed a partnership in 2008 with an animation company in Bangalore, India, which is called Paprikaas Interactive Services. Paprikaas offers a wide variety of animation services, including character modeling, set design, and animation for movies, TV shows, and video games. The company counts among its clients Nickelodeon, Sony Computer Entertainment, Electronic Arts, and Microsoft.

In February DreamWorks announced a $2 billion deal with the Chinese government, which involved the building of a production studio in Shanghai. The deal came to fruition just days after Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping made a visit to Los Angeles to meet with Katzenberg. "

lol! Ok, since the primary participant has run away in fear, I declare you the winner!!!!

I would also like to add my 2 cents:

1) He toyed with the idea of using troops to arrest American citizens.

2) He toyed with the idea of putting the SSA retirement system into the hands of the open market.

3) He asked Russia for permission to give aid to Georgia

4) He looked good sitting in his aircraft flying over New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina

5) He thought "Brownie" did a good job in his response to Katrina

6) He pushed and got the Patriot Act passed (thankfully, it wasn't passed as a permanent enforcement tool as he wanted.)

7) And surprisingly, he got the NW Hawaiian islands declared a monument site (now this one I was happy about. But I really need to thank Laura!)

Your obsession is just that. You don't know squat about healthcare. You simply sing the song that you are programmed to sing. Self thought or the desire to find the truth is nonexistent with you baggers. I just helped a waitress get on Obamacare and she was paying over $500,00 a month and now she is paying less than half of that with far better coverage. I have now helped 6 people sign up and they all have saved along with getting better care, some more than others. So you programmed minions can cry until the cows come home Obamacare is here to stay and is making a great comeback. Just wait until November when we will be on a real roll and your suicide rate will be at its highest level ever. Good riddance. Over 5 Milliion and growing, as the un American baggers gasp.
