Oh, by the way...

A Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report says that under the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. "Obamacare", 30 million non-elderly Americans will remain without health insurance in 2022.

Casey's opponent, Tom Smith, plays this ultra conservative right winger tea party guy. He's been a Republican for about a year.
One year.
Prior to that, he's been a Democrat.
Sounds like another Romney. A liberal pretending to be a conservative to dupe the voters.
lots of folks in PA register in the other party if their county is controlled by the other party so that they have a voice in local primary elections, which usually determine the eventual winner.....

Tom Smith appears in his own ads....

Casey has been in hiding for six years, unable to appear in public...if Casey ever debated, it would quickly become apparent that he is an imbecile....

Nice looking ride IMO and I can see 40,000 people in North America wanting to own one. As I've mentioned previously, some folks are paying upwards of $30,000 for golf carts and custom all terrain vehicles www.villagesgolfcartman.com/

It's said that there are over 50,000 golf carts at The Villages alone. These brokeazz right wingers think everyone else is broke like them.

The program that provided rebates for home owners & companies to weatherize, install panels, or install geothermal HVAC systems.

There are thousands of family owned water well drilling businesses in he US. These families invested in drill rigs, costing over $500K & elated equipment. Their main source of work in home building.

When housing collapsed, many would have gone out of business.

But the rebate for geothermal HVAC created a lot of work. Instead of drilling water wells, they were drilling holes for ground loops.

It saved hundreds if not thousands of water well driller's businesses & saved thousands of jobs.

It also created work for HVAC unit manufacturers & installers.

It reduced the amount of heating oil needed & eliminated home emissions.

And it will save these that installed these systems thousands of dollars.

People, schools, government buildings & churches.

This is a successful program that had a positive effect on thousands of families & this country.

Mitt Romney called this waste of money.

As for the Volt, I don't own one (yet) but the couple people I know that have them think they are great.

TEA PARTY says NO! to new taxes

OBAMA’S SECRET SECOND-TERM AGENDA, revealed.“At every turn in his presidency, Obama believes he understands Republicans and can bully them into submission. And at every turn he has underestimated Republican resolve. If Obama wins reelection he will no doubt try to govern in his second term the exact same way he tried to govern in his first. And he will get the exact same results. In other words, if Obama wins reelection, we are definitely going over the fiscal cliff.”

Oh, by the way...

According to a Congressional Research Service report, which focused solely on federal spending for FEDERAL WELFARE programs, spending on FEDERAL WELFARE programs increased $563.413 billion in fiscal year 2008 to $745.84 billion in fiscal year 2011 — a 32 percent increase.

When state spending on FEDERAL WELFARE programs — specifically Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program — was thrown into the mix, the amount spent on FEDERAL WELFARE increased 28 percent, from $798.813 billion in fiscal year 2008 to $1.028.54 trillion in fiscal year 2011.

I get it,. You think Obama created this recession. How dumb are you?
I KNOW Obama is responsible for last four years and all that has happened. Like Bush before him, you are responsible for your term (s) as president and your administration.

I am just smart enough to know that the one to hold responsible for the state of the economy is the one in charge of it!

<quoted text>The Volt line in Hammtramck will be converted to produce the Cadillac ELR which is expected to debut in late 2013. The ELR concept car is a wicked looking two seat roadster, yet the mechanics are basically the same as the Volt. The Cadillac name and higher price tag is expected to draw a different sort of buyer.
what sort of buyer do you think the Cadillac name appeals to nowadays???...

certainly not the younger, educated upscale buyer.....who would not be caught dead in a Cadillac....except for a hearse....

More green energy scams

HOW ABOUT $300 MILLION IN PUBLIC FUNDING FOR CLEAN ENERGY FIRM WORKERS TO SIT AND PLAY CARDS? That’s what is happening at LG Chem, another of those electric car battery makers that got major federal funding, according to a local Michigan television news operation. Only problem is there’s almost no demand for what LG Chem makes.

No, it's what you get from failed Bush policies. So far Obama has stopped the bleeding, 8 years to break, 8 years to fix. That's just the way it goes.

This coming from a person who voted for Bush who doubled the debt & left office with the worst recession in 80 years.
That recession etched these trillions in debt in stone. That recession lost over a trillion in revenues alone. It added hundreds of billions to unemployment, social services costs, meanwhile we still had two unfunded quagmire wars & unfunded medicare & government expansions carried over from the previous administration.
If you really don't like debt, then you need to ask yourself what happened that took us from a balanced budget in 2001 to this mess we have today.
It didn't happen under Obama.
The Democrats took full control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007. They were given a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit, which they exploded ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT, and a total debt of 5 trillion dollars, which they more than trippled to the 16 trillion dollars it is today.

As for the recession, you never answered this post:

In 1999 Bill Clinton coerced Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to institute nationwide a subprime housing mortgage underwriting program.
This Democrat program created a mountain of what was called "toxic assets."
These individual bad mortgages were hidden inside traunches and sold by mother companies to "Special Purpose Vehicles" created by the mother companies in foreign countries, then the mother companies bought the bulk traunches back from their "Special Puropose Vehicles", replacing the individual bad loans on their books with a single traunch, making it impossible to investigate.
These traunches were given fraudulent AAA ratings and sold to municipalities throughout Europe to fund their pension plans and bond projects.
In 2003 the looming disaster was identified by the Director or OFHEO in a Congressional hearing, while the Democrats were negotiating for no effective oversight of their lunatic subprime housing loan program, in exchange the Democrats supported the invasion of Iraq.
In january, 2007, the Democrats took control of all oversight of the financial institutions that collapsed our economy after 2 years of Democrat oversight.
The Democrats' idiotic subprime loan program not only collapsed our economy, the Democrats collapsed municipal economies throughout Europe, putting enough strain on the national governments of Europe to cause the social collapse we're witnessing today because those governments are unable to fund their social programs and pay for the recovery of the economic crisis the Democrats' ludicrous subprime loan program caused them.

Kindly explain to us why would the financial institutions that caused the collapse gave so much bribe money to Obama, in the whole of Congress it was only Christopher Dodd that they gave more to.
To answer this, you have to explain why Obama was so important to the financial institutions that caused the collapse. After all, you know they weren't just giving that money to Obama for nothing.
