The costs dumped on States to impliment the AHA will be in the Billions. Good news is that the Bluest States who were most committed to embracing the disgrace will be hit the hardest.
NY, CA, and IL already have the highest State deficits coupled with extinction level unfunded publ sect pensions in the Billions will suffer the most. Luckily, they are cruelly committed to leaving nothing but bone crushing debt as their legacy to their kids so won't mind a few more billions won't matter.
As heavily populated Blue States with lots of electorial votes I see the Dems voting to bail them out..... We in the "fly over" part of the country better get ready for the feces to hit the fan.

Hi au contraire. This is just a guess but maybe she can't read. At any rate it was a substandard effort of trying to keep up with her job.

Stupidass. Keynesian economics are ECONOMICS, not partisan politics, not "left" or "right." You damned Rightie droids have to divide everything up that way, though, don't'cha?
Deficits will increase with government spending, but can be offset by increased taxes on the wealthy and some "defense" cuts. As the economy continues to improve, so will revenues. These are economic FACTS proved during the Depression and New Deal, dummy.
Quit talking out of your ass...
The New Deal didn't do sh!Defense spending on the war was what finally brought us out of the depression.

If it makes you feel better, Pelosi represents the most destructive political gangsters in America...the Calif UnionCrats.

No matter how hard she tried in DC she will never be able to do as much damage as they have done to the broken, nearly bankrupt sick Joke they have made of California

It sounds like you just outlined the strategy Oliar used to brain wash the uneducated majority to vote him another four years.

Funny how the truth was never posted on the teleprompter for the ass to read.

Also funny how the scandals are coming out one by one now that he is guaranteed another four years rent free.

What a mess the next several years are going to be.

<quoted text>You're right, what she actually said was that "food stamps and unemployment payments give the government the biggest bang for their buck". That makes more sense doesn't it? But it begs the question of why doesn't the government put everyone on unemployment and foodstamps if that provides the biggest bang for their buck? Stay tuned because some lefty wackjob might actually propose to do just that.
Of course Pelosi would like Food Stamps and unemployment payments as that gives her more people to control with the pittance they give out. Pelosi is not for Americans, but more people to control and serve under her.

I bet she'd know if they tried to cut even $1 from her bloated pension or if they tried to take her undeserved plane away. Nancy is for Nancy.

It was proved to you before the election that taxing the rich only will run the government for about three months. Then what?

Since Benghazi we have had one Admiral and four, four star generals resign or be demoted. This is unheard in such a short period of time and it appears that our military leaders are being decimated. The question is WHY? Is this more of the flexability that Obama promised Putin.

<quoted text>You Keynesians are all the same. Radical lefties who naively don't seem to realise that all money comes from somewhere. It doesn't just magically appear lefty. And your assumption that all tax cuts go into the bank is even more laughable. How do you expect anyone to agree with you when you come up with stuff like that? Are you some kind of blood relation to Nancy?
You are going to have to try harder than that if you are going to beat La Dumbo in the Rat Wing trash rhetoric contest. The stock market has made record gains. The rich are getting richer then ever under the still imposed Bush tax cuts. Where are the all the jobs the Bush tax breaks are suppose to be producing. Or are all the big small bnusiness leaders trying to punish their employees like Pappa John because they can't have their way all the time.

The rich are not the only ones being taxed. They are just having their taxes uncreased another 4%. But of course the Republicans position is if you increase the taxes on the one percent they will punish everybody for doing it. Talk about elitist snobs. Screw them and screw you.

dems despise the military, so this is playing right into their wheelhouse. Hillary used to have full bird colonels carrying her luggage, Barb Boxer made a big deal of having a general call her Senator instead of Maam, Kerry used to vote against all military budgets, and now he is almost the new Secretary of defense...you can't make up this sh't, we are moving into dangerous waters with a muslim in control
