Obamanomics under fire from GOP as economy slows to 0.1 percent growth rate...

WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy slowed to an anemic pace in the first quarter of the year, according to new Commerce Department estimates, renewing Republican claims that Obama administration policies are slamming the brakes on the recovery.

The department estimated that growth slowed to a barely discernible 0.1 percent annual rate between January and March. That was the weakest pace since the end of 2012 and was down from a 2.6 percent rate in the previous quarter.

Just not government intrusion or ObamaCare.
The private sector could manage health care and pre-existing conditions so much better than politicians, the IRS and power hungry government bureaucrats.
Competition among insurance companies nationwide wasn't even considered. Competition is what drives costs down in a capitalistic system.
Why would anybody except a gullible dumbass like you think that we should entrust our access to healthcare to big insurance whose only concern is making their profits as large as possible. By the way Carol the exchanges do provide competition. If we allowed purchase across state lines the insurance companies would simply establish themselves in states with the loosest regulations and could raise premiums at will.

. The remark is largely true (though it would have truer if he had said that Israel already subjects most Palestinians in the territories it controls to apartheid conditions); it concerns a matter of great importance to American foreign policy, as Israel colors our relationships with the entire Arab and much of the Muslim world; and it breaches a dam on American internal discourse which the Israel lobby has fought hard to construct and defend.
Israel plays an extraordinary role in the American political system. Its leaders flood the important Sunday talk shows when any Mideast topic arises; Israelis lobbied hard for an John Kerry Walks Up to the Truth
A Washington gaffe, as Michael Kinsley once observed, occurs when a politician states an obvious truth he isn’t supposed to say. John Kerry’s closed door remark before a Trilateral Commission (an elite establishment group) gathering, where he said that without a two-state solution, Israel will become an apartheid state, reaches the important gaffe categoryAmerican war against Iraq, as they do now for an American war against Iran. Americans, by and large, receive them with deference and rapt attention. They also honor Israel by subsidizing it: Americans give more foreign aid to Israel, a rich country, than to all of sub-Saharan Africa combined. So for Kerry to suggest, even with a heavy heart, that Israel is headed for apartheid in the absence of a two state solution is to tread into Emperor’s New Clothes territory. It may be true, indeed of course it’s true. But for a high ranking American politician to actually say so falls somewhere between lèse-majesté and blasphemy.
Kerry was rapidly denounced by Israel lobbyists in their multiple guises. Commentary called the comments a “calumny” against Israel. One of Bill Kristol’s groups, the Emergency Committee for Israel, called for Obama to fire Kerry, and for Hillary Clinton to repudiate his remarks. AIPAC called the remarks “offensive” and “inappropriate,” comments echoed by the ADL and the American Jewish Committee. The National Jewish Democratic Committee, a major arm of Democratic Party fundraising, expressed its “deep disappointment” with the remarks, rejecting the idea that racially based governance “in any way describes Israel.” Kerry was asked to apologize.
He didn’t—he clarified. Kerry stated that if he could “rewind the tape” he wouldn’t use the A word, while reminding everyone that current Israeli justice minister Tzipi Livini, and former prime ministers Olmert and Barak had explicitly claimed Israel was headed towards apartheid if it didn’t come to an agreement with the Palestinians. Some saw this statement as a grovel, but it could as easily be read as a non-apologetic “explanation.”
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/john-k...
....it is highly unlikely Kerry used the apartheid word casually, or by accident. He knew full well that top Israeli politicians have used it, that former President Jimmy Carter had used it (about the West Bank, not Israel proper). He almost certainly knew that most serious foreign policy observers not just in the United States but throughout the world realize that Israel—once revered as a redeeming and admirable achievement, is now widely perceived as an oppressive, racist force. It stunts the lives of millions of Palestinians through a combination of brute power and racially based bureaucratic entanglement. Its current, democratically elected, leaders have no intention of changing that. If Kerry once doubted this, he knows it now, after nine months of futile shuttle diplomacy.

Palestine was making NO compromises either, but keep beating that anti-Semitic drum that fascist are so noted for.

Cost to create one stimulus job:$71,500
mug.cnnmoney3
Posted by
CNNMoney.com Senior Writer Tami Lubhy

NEW YORK ( CNNMoney.com )- The White House unveiled Thursday the first hard data on how many jobs the $787 billion recovery act has created.

So far, 30,383 jobs have been created by companies that have gotten $2.2 billion worth of stimulus contracts directly from the federal government. That equates to $71,500 per job based on just the funds that have been distributed.

These firms have been awarded a total of $16 billion.

Stimulus-fueled job creation has become a very controversial issue. The White House has faced blistering attacks by Republicans, who contend that the recovery act has failed to live up to its promise to put Americans back to work.

The Obama administration downplayed the reports released Thursday, saying they represent just a small sliver of the stimulus that's been spent, since the massive recovery act was enacted in February. The first reports detailing the number of stimulus jobs created or saved were submitted last weekend by
recipients of stimulus-funded contracts, grants and loans.

"It is too soon to draw any global conclusions from this partial and preliminary data, as it reports on just $16 billion of the $339 billion in Recovery Act efforts before September 30th, but the early indications are quite
positive," said Jared Bernstein, chief economist for Vice President Joe Biden.

"The direct count by Recovery Act recipients of jobs created or saved from this small percentage of the Recovery Act exceeds our projections."

The majority of stimulus funds spent so far have gone to state and local governments. Their reports will be released on Oct. 30, though some governors have already revealed preliminary data. In California, for instance, stimulus funds received by state agencies have created or saved more than 100,000 jobs.

Insurance companies are a lot better than a VA like system that "lost" the charts of 40 vets.

Typical liberal ... you attempt to discredit actual data with nothing but your opinion.
In the report that I read it attributed the cost to the jobs created. You claim differently .... so where is your proof.

So far, 30,383 jobs have been created by companies that have gotten $2.2 billion worth of stimulus contracts directly from the federal government. That equates to $71,500 per job based on just the funds that have been distributed.

You wear your stupidity well Dave!
So now you admit there were construction jobs. A few posts ago, you were having a meltdown & declaring there weren't any construction projects.

My God, you are ridiculous.

So that 2.2 billion did not buy any concrete, any beams for bridge construction, any construction equipment. no fuel, it just paid the salaries of the workers & when that project was done, there was no bridge or improved highway. Both that were needed.

Well, you're pretty easily amazed, apparently... no... nope... "our true intention" is to destroy the last vestiges of traditional american thinking, and do our best to deal with the current reality arising from centuries of whinging merchants and the politicians they own. Frankly, I don't care about the Benghazi Four, or the causes of the housing bubble, all I care about is helping the old white folks and the chinee to die now so the rest of us can move back to a sustainable, no-growth future...

Strange ... you must have some sort of special vision, since I see nowhere in my post where I state anything about construction jobs. So we can attribute this to either your poor reading comprehension or we will have to assume that it was due to your dishonest nature .... You pick.

You are the one stating that these jobs did not cost 71,500 per job, and that much of the cost was construction job .... and yet you have offered nothing to support your claim other than your word. Not even a left wing misinformation article .... Seems quite suspicious!
Even they wont support your lies.

Still awaiting for you to actually produce some proof Dumb Dave. Or are you going to continue to just lie and hope that someone somewhere is as stupid as you to believe your tripe.

There is that goofy all or nothing thinking of progressives again.

Progressives cannot even have an honest conversation about the fact that some are promoting racial segregation of the NBA.
