When GWB took office, China owned $250B in US T-bills__when he left office China owned nearly $800 billion in T-bills.

Dumbass Dave is a liar...this from a pro-ObamaKKKare site
"The Federal Government pays 100% of expansion costs for the first three years and 90% thereafter until 2022."
http://obamacarefacts.com/obamacares-medicaid...
The 90% does not end in 2022.

Perhaps your confusion stems from several financial studies done of the expansions that ran from 2013 through 2022.

The 90% rate continues beyond 2022.

The ACA is a piece of legislation dealing with healthcare and health insurance and not an health insurance plan.

Fool.

The ACA is a law enacted by your party that is now Socialist that forces people to purchase a good they may or may not want.

It is the first time our Federal Government has removed freedom of choice in what people can or can't do.

It's socialism.

The Supreme Court justified you scumbags forcing this on America calling it a "TAX".

You can call it health whatever, but the truth is it is a government imposed way to force and or fine young adults to pay for you zeros.

It's socialism, liar.

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 26 (UPI)-- Students in San Jose, Calif., can no longer hold car washes to raise for money for school events because city officials say they endanger the environment.
Cheerleaders at Lincoln High School had to cancel a scheduled Oct. 20 car wash after a visit from the city's Environmental Services Department, the San Jose Mercury News reported Friday.
"Anything that is not storm water or rain water is considered a pollutant," said Jennie Loft, the department's acting communications manager. "If it goes into a storm drain, that pollutant will harm wildlife and habitats in the creeks."
Loft said school groups could still hold car washes if they were conducted under certain conditions. Those include washing vehicles over grassy or gravel areas, ensuring wash water doesn't go into the street, gutter or storm drain and leaving no soap stains on the ground.
The same rules apply to cars washed by their owners.
Cars can be washed with a solution that requires no water, but the concentrate costs $159 a gallon.
Lincoln cheerleaders had hoped to raise money from the car wash to fund a trip to a national competition in April.
Makes sense to me. Many people forget that storm drains and ditches are DIFFERENT than sewers. They are NOT CONNECTED to a treatment plant. Commercial car wash water goes to the sewer and is treated.

People need to be reminded that what they do on their own property can affects things around them.

You may be surprised that San Jose is not leading the way. Bremerton, Washington even has a "Fundraiser Car Wash Program" to avoid pollution.

That's a bunch of bull. The government takes away rights anytime they fancy to do so. You can call social security socialism, or welfare, or anything that people's taxes are used to support and none of them were voted on. At the same time, we pay for actions in other countries by our own CIA and endlessly fund things like the Israeli occupation of the west bank and no one asks if we want to do that. When ever the US starts another war the public isn't consulted and neither are they when the government decides to take people rights away to vote on issues in local government. If that is all it takes to make something socialism we've been socialist in this country for a long time now.

Back to Obama. If he isn't a strong president how is he able to deny Americans their freedom and control their lives? That doesn't sound weak to me.

Australia’s newly elected prime minister pulled no punches when giving his thoughts on the country’s carbon tax, which he says must be abolished as quickly as possible.

“The carbon tax is bad for the economy and it doesn’t do any good for the environment,” Abbott told The Washington Post.“Despite a carbon tax of $37 a ton by 2020, Australia’s domestic emissions were going up, not down. The carbon tax was basically socialism masquerading as environmentalism, and that’s why it’s going to get abolished.”

“If the Labor Party wants to give the people of Australia a Christmas present, they will vote to abolish the carbon tax. It was damaging the economy without helping the environment. It was a stupid tax. A misconceived tax,” Abbott added.

Australia’s liberal Labor Party received a crippling blow in the recent elections, as Abbott’s conservative coalition garnered enough votes to create the largest ruling coalition in the country since 2004. Conservatives rode in on a wave of widespread disapproval of the previous government’s handling of the economy, including the imposition of a carbon tax in the summer of 2012.

“We’ve got an overwhelming majority of scientists telling us our planet needs to do this,” said former Labor Prime Minister Julia Gillard, who implemented the tax.”Are you really going to be the one who bets that the vast majority of them are wrong with something as important as the planet’s future?”

However, the tax quickly began to impact families and the economy. The carbon tax increased taxes on 2.2 million people and did nothing to decrease carbon dioxide emissions, according to a study by Dr. Alex Robson, economist at Australia’s University of Brisbane. The study was conducted for the Institute for Energy Research, which opposes a carbon tax.

News Limited Network reported in March that the tax was contributing to a record 10,632 businesses facing insolvency in 2012 — up from 10,481 for 2011.

The country’s hospitals were also affected. The Herald Sun reports that Victoria provincial hospitals spent an extra $6.1 million in energy costs in just six months due to the carbon tax. The carbon tax made up 8-22 percent of the hospitals’ total energy costs.
