So when you right wingers run screaming down the street about 8% unemployment having a freakin fit about Obama, you took market conditions into effect.
You right wingers are such a pack of hypocrites.
You guys keep telling me how great the economy was under Bush.
Now you blame market conditions on the loss of our manufacturing jobs???
I don't totally blame Bush & the Republicans. If you recall,my post was in response from one of your right wing buddies having the typical right wing tissy fit about manufacturing contracting in the last jobs report.
Evidently it is OK to blame Obama for that & not blame Bush for flushing 1/3 of those jobs down the toilet.
I blame people like Mitt Romney & the Wall Street Crowd. Someday I'll explain it.
I blame those who decided to delay corp income tax collection until the foreign profits come back.
And I will Blame Pail Ryan & Mitt Romney & the Republicans if they pass their idea that foreign earned corporate profits are tax free. If you vote for them,. I will blame you too for being so stupid.
get a life....

it's the economy, stupid...

CNN's O'Brien Corrects Right-Wing Media Medicare Falsehood
O'Brien pointed out that Sununu's talking point has been debunked by the Congressional Budget Office, which found that the Medicare savings in the ACA are not cuts, but rather a reduction in the expected rate of growth of the program.
O'Brien also noted that independent fact-checkers have found that the Affordable Care Act does not cut Medicare benefits. These fact-checkers also determined that the claim that hundreds of billions of dollars have been cut from Medicare is outright false.

The CBO memo indeed said the money was going to ObamaTax & Care. That is the way they kept the cost down for the program. They even tried to double count it.

Now to basics which Left deniers will continue being such. On my check I pay a Medicare tax. When they money is diverted to pay for ObamaTax & Care it is indeed a cut to what would have gone into Medicare.

Fact Check attempt a stupid slight of hand that fooled some but others saw through the dishonesty. If the money is not going into Medicare then it is a cut from Medicare funds.

Russell Simmons: Biden was Right

The Vice President made headlines Tuesday when he told a mostly black audience that Romney’s economic policies would “put y’all back in chains.” While some have called the comments offensive, for music mogul Russell Simons, Biden was speaking the truth.

oe Biden's truthful comment that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would put "y'all back in chains" sat fine with me. Here's why and here's one example.&#8232;

The greatest cause of the destruction of the fabric of the black community in the past forty years is drug legislation that targets and imprisons those who live in under-served communities. The consequences of these draconian laws are that it takes diseased people, locks them up for long periods of time, educates them in violent criminal behavior and dumps them back into the community. The money for this operation is obviously funded by the "good old boys" who run Wall Street.

So, when Joe Biden’s comment yesterday made Republicans jump out of their seats, I wondered why they were so upset. Black people certainly were not. If Republicans really want to know how to help black people, then end the war on drugs, because that really is a war against our own people. Changing those policies will start to free "the chains." Instead, these and other biased policies supported by the Republican Party disempower blacks and all other minorities in various ways. Without healthcare, quality education, equal rights for women and gays and a just tax code (that raises my taxes!), under-served communities will be hit the hardest by the election of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. We must do everything in our power to make sure that doesn't happen. &#8232;

I guess the Romney/Ryan plan doesn't save any money? Is that it?
Or are are they "stealing" from Medicare?
That is nice euphonious expression. However when the providers refuse services due to the cut in payments, no matter how you cut it Seniors will suffer from lack of services or benefits.

I know that SCOTUS had warned that there was an end date for affirmative action.
Affirmative action was ridiculous in the first place, placing people of a certain race above persons of another race based solely on skin color !

That was what the civil rights movement was supposed to be against in tghe first place; but thats what they ended up adopting! What kind of foolishness is that?

Whites and Asians ARE physically inferior to Blacks.

Blacks and Hispanics ARE Intellectually inferior to Whites and Asians

That is just how it is, to have programs that pick inferiors over superiors based on quotas is just plain asinine.

Blacks are fantastic athletes and whites and Asians are inferior in this area. What if Pro football or basketball teams had to be 20% WHITE 20% BLACK 20% ASIAN 20% HOMOSEXUAL AND 20% HISPANIC?

That is how fucking retarded Affirmative action is.....

This is just one more example of DemoRat Retardation..

Testimony: Paul Van de Water, Senior Fellow, Before the Committee on the Budget
U.S. House of Representatives

First, critics have claimed that CBO’s cost estimate double-counts the Medicare savings. This assertion is readily disproved. Let’s be very clear. CBO counts everything once and only once. It counts the Medicare savings once. CBO doesn’t count anything twice. Just read the cost estimate.

In the cost estimate? What page?

He's absolutely right. The only way you can be discriminated against for life is to be a convicted felon. With the increase in private prisons who pay hefty campaign contributions (Rick Scott)
watch for increased laws, stiffer penalties to ensure a steady stream of paying customers.
Vote to re elect the President, especially with regard to the Supreme Court.
Romney/Ryan may introduce debtors prison. Imagine how many millions more they can incarcerate, people who will never be able to vote.

Even the fact checkers tell you to check their facts. Major problems with their analysis and conclusion especially when Obama, himself, states he took money out of Medicare to pay for it.
