Illegals aren't draining the economy, idiot.
Healthcare is and guess who wastes the most $$$ on healthcare?
Old People.

You want a stable economy, tell the old folks to stop sucking it dry.
WE need to stop investing in the walking dead and invest in our future: EDUCATION and ALTERNATIVE ENERGY

FLASH: THE OBAMA CODE HAS BEEN BROKEN…………with virtually all categories of our economy, jobs, wars, education and unemployment, many ask How Did Obama Win, When will he lead, and why does he keep campaigning? The answer is hidden in the last part of the questions, the campaigning.

Low information voters despite what is staring them in the face do not associate all of the harm Obama is doing, basically with all his flying around and still campaigning he is telling the children, he is opposed to all the bad things even though he is responsible for them. Sequester finally helped break the code, showing Obama, with the help of the MSM as usual, had many thinking the sequester was the republicans ploy and idea, when in reality it was he and his staffs idea.

The children are convinced the unemployment is not Obama’s fault, even though he has cost us 8.9 million jobs and because he has promised to focus and pivot to jobs before and after each vacation, but never has.

It is easy to fool the peasants as many kings found out, and with the educational levels falling in America it has become easier to fool more of the people more of the time.

This program won't cost the state of Florida anything for the first three years, but the
trouble is that Scott wants to run it through
the private insurance companies so that they
can take big chunks out of it in profits and CEO
salaries and bonuses (and kick-backs to him).

Scott has already been caught defrauding
Medicare in 1997 and the company he was CEO
of (Columbia/HCA)shelled out a record $1.7 billion in fines for its criminality.

Criminal Scott is the wrong guy to be in charge
of anything having to do with health care.

He's pure filth.

So are most liberals......filth I mean.

• Sen. Coburn urges USDA to nix wine-tasting 'get aways' amid sequester warnings

Instead of furloughing meat inspectors, why not cancel the wine-tasting getaway in California? Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., posed that question this week to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, noting that two USDA-sponsored conferences are coming up despite the budget anxiety in Washington over the sequester.

Obama threatens workers with furloughs and yet his people go on wine tasting meeting in NAPA Valley..........what a hoot the liar in chief is.
