What part of no they don't escapes you?? The government elite get 1st class care...the others wait in lines for sprains. Been to Briain...it ain't fkn great.

Why isn't the dems who passed nobamacare on it?? Why is many unions excempt from it if it's so fkn great?? Why is pelosi's husband invested in pharma companies.??

You're so gullible.

"All those countries have long waiting lines."
Care to provide a few examples? Statistics.
If their is socialized medicine,this would lower the standard of care,because physicians
would not be as concered to quality healthcare due to financial losses.If there is a lack of funding in the healthcare system,it would mean less testing, and less testing means compromised patient health and safety.If there are less physicians then patient quality is delayed

My health-care prejudices crumbled not in the classroom but on the way to one. On a subzero Winnipeg morning in 1997, I cut across the hospital emergency room to shave a few minutes off my frigid commute. Swinging open the door, I stepped into a nightmare: the ER overflowed with elderly people on stretchers, waiting for admission. Some, it turned out, had waited five days. The air stank with sweat and urine. Right then, I began to reconsider everything that I thought I knew about Canadian health care

Nonsense!
House vote on sequester:
Republicans....174 yes
Democrats....95 yes
You blame Obama for 174 Republicans voting yes?
Ryan again placed the blame for the sequester on the White House, accusing Obama of “putting politics ahead of national security” after a new book by Bob Woodward said that the idea for sequestration originated in the White House. A bi-partisan committee failed to get anything finished...the attempt by the republicans to pass a budget has been much more sincere than the dems in the senate...who haven't passed on one in 1030 days.

The republicans made a deal.......that as usual..the Whitehouse has no intention of keeping. It was to make required cuts instead of raising the debt ceiling...which nobama is desiring.

With the massive layoffs and business closings in the last 3 years....many are not able to pay for goods as before..dummy.

The government does a rather inefficient job of tracking inflation (hard to believe the government could do anything inefficiently). Wal-Mart has a secrete inflation index of its own that tends to be more accurate, recently it was leaked.
Have you seen the price of gas lately? There's a rise in the cost of living right there. Wages are depressed since there's more people looking for job than there are jobs right now.

Thanks to inflation, prices on almost everything increase every year. In 2013, consumers are bracing for the impact of higher prices on many of the items that they have to buy. With the policy of the Federal Reserve to continue printing more money, this has the effect of lowering the value of the dollar.

Also food costs aren’t calculated into the Consumer Price Index, which means they don’t take them into consideration when calculating inflation. Are food prices rising fast........of course they are!!

When the gas index falls...it lowers the cost of living index...

Read the news pinhead....prices are rising everywhere.

You didn't discover anything but another liberal spin BS session. Try again. Failed nobamaganda!! LMAO

The real cause of our current economic dilemma began way back in 1977 with the Community Reinvestment Act (democrat), a law prohibiting financial institutions from “redlining.” Until then, it was fairly common for banks to decide where they would invest their depositors’ money. It was common for banks to draw a red line on a map around slum areas the bankers believed to be too risky to invest their customer’s money. The law was tweaked a little in 1989 and again in 1992, but when Bill Clinton claimed the White House, he bought into the idea that society functioned best when managed by the government – especially by his government.

Attempts and reigning this in by Bush were blocked by Dodd and Frank....

It's a dem mess all the way, slick! You just don't have the guts to admit it...just blame others. LMAO

Conservatives give 10 times more to charities than liberals..all the demorats do is take, welfare kings and queens, government six figure salaried czars and department supervisors all vote demorat.
The demrat politicians don't care OR do anything to help them...just get their vote with promises they're not going to keep. Then enjoy the benifits...

If you had the intellectual capacity, you would realize that Obama does not control oil or gasoline prices. Further, when Obama first took office in January of 2009, the inflation rate was at 4.3. As of January of 2013, the rate is 1.6.

LOL, The CRA excuse again. You retards will simply repeat ANYTHING limbaugh tells you to! Its freakin pathetic!

Ending redlining forced banks to check a persons credit rather than disallowing. It NEVER forced ANY bank to make a loan.

I can believe someone is still dumb enough to even try the cra stupidity again!
