ObamaKare is the worse piece of legislation ever passed or signed by a president of the United States. ObamaKare does nothing to decrease the cost of health care,it is thousands of rules,regulations and taxes designed to control the population and take money out of the pockets of the working people.

Iraqi government paying locals to fight militants in Anbar province

BAGHDAD -- United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon flew to Baghdad on Monday to discuss the growing violence in Iraq. On Monday alone, there were four car bombings in the capital. At least 26 people were killed.

West of Baghdad, Iraq's army is in a standoff with militants linked to al Qaeda.

----------

Anyone can say to the world Neo-Hitlerism is no place in today's world , because people already learn from the past Hitler.

There is no any reason to generate some more hypocrisy on Iraq, for there is no easy way out.

Whoever came up with that sort of regime change, is too unrealistic but mythical.

Yet they still don't understand what is so wrong and what are the problems.

What is so wrong is that, it was terrible, disastrous, wrongful
to hold stalemate of UN to take Iraq for regime change by someone claiming to be a war president to show if a war president could demonstrate military skills and action (Bush wanting self as war president was no such military strategist, for that was not much in Iraq, compared to WWII), but historically, such real one military president was necessary as that one was Stalin who crushed Hitler (in a large war).

What is so wrong is also a violation of Universal ruling, amid UN WMD inspection.

What the problems are: UN is still confused in its stand in current Iraq situations that it should re-examine why it happened, that it is of not any use to further the position of what had started to Iraq to further the messes.
UN was wrong to let Iraq war start with.
UN is viewed as lacking concern of global value and doctrine, that the planet is supposed as a just and fair world, that UN ought not cause sufferings of people around the world.

The problems are, that no foreign and strange power (US) could make the Iraqi people surrender by forming a new government from processing regime change--according to such dictator, being self-manufacturing, self-calling as war president (Bush), in conjunction by having Iraqi government paying locals to fight militants.

That is not Iraqi people's way and direction of the country and future , that others still cannot conceive clearly.

These are serious large piles of current failures as historical judgment from facts demonstrating such.

History exhibits:
Bush wanting to be a war president, took all in his hands, by using hypocrisy by dictatorship to violate all the people to make their sufferings , by using the disguise of regime change, while lying of WMD, with no concern to Universal Laws, by having invaded Iraq, whereas Obama would implement the continuance, so that resulted the demonstration of historical factual failing of US stand.

What are such fallacious jokes -- Obama would implement the continuance in Iraq, to produce continuous factual failing, that US deals not from necessary circumstances and conditions to base upon for occupation, but just for making an illicit regime change to conduct extremism, with no regard to what global people think, to create its downgraded image , by letting this war-monger president acting on dysfunctional acts in these new times?

That these are serious downs (image, power, position, etc.) of US gives historical judgment from facts demonstrating such, just coming from the Iraq case.

What actually has US won in Iraq and elsewhere, now THAT OBAMA HAS CARRIED OVER BY EXPANDING ON AFGHANISTAN, IN THIS EMERGING AND UPRISING WORLD?

The people of the world know better that that -- who are the wrongdoers?
US people are people of world too.

On such matters owing to US making ensemble messes in Iraq for itself and UN, such message of responsibility would serve the meaning of engaging in serious wrongs,

that US would have to pay serious consequences of breaking down searching WMD information of true facts coming out, for this would be consequential,

(in addition), that violating global Universal rules by US would degrade UN charter and agenda, that this world could result sidelining US or minimize and reject involvement ,

that any US proposal would be viewed unwanted, and (US would be) regarded as negative member not in good standing, as breaking Universal law and doctrine, with many sufferings of those who claimed from US unethical acts, that US must bear large, serious punitive damages.

I'll give you credit, the above chart does highlight how Obama since 2010 has decreased the deficit he inherited from George Bush, but as you article say those deficits were created by discretionary spending measures implemented in spending bills, appropriations and continuing resolutions all authorized by George Bush prior to the 2010 Obama spending.

In 2009 Obama added $140 Billion as a result of the 2009 Stimulus.

The point is you can not show a economic policy that Bush received from the Democrats after 2007 until he left Washington that he signed into law.

It's a typical strategy of the novice followers of politics to put forth that argument, but never can any of you cut to the meat and bones of that debate by linking to a Bill which George Bush signed to enact policy changes.

Jefferson, refuting everything liberal you say........

While president, Jefferson's principles were tested in many ways. For example, in order to purchase the Louisiana Territory from France he was willing to expand his narrow interpretation of the Constitution. But Jefferson stood firm in ending the importation of slaves and maintaining his view of the separation of church and state.

Thomas Jefferson's December 20, 1787, letter to James Madison contains objections to key parts of the new Federal Constitution. Primarily, Jefferson noted the absence of a bill of rights and the failure to provide for rotation in office or term limits, particularly for the chief executive.

I doubt those positions and the pending actions indicate Jefferson shunned liberalism.

Not only the higher cost of employer provided healthcare for the employees, Obamacare, Medicaid will pay less for the patients.
http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2013/09/1...

"Health care reform has really changed things, and the burden of cost is going to be falling on patients," spokeswoman Eileen Shiel told The Plain Dealer. "We want to make sure we can keep care affordable."

[READ: Hospital of Tomorrow: How the Industry is Facing the Future]

During a regularly scheduled quarterly meeting, Cleveland Clinic President and Chief Executive Dr. Toby Cosgrove told employees about plans to reduce operating expenses by about 6 percent, and cited the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, as one of the reasons for the cuts.

Ohio refused the additional money that would have come with expanding medicaid, so there's no additional money to provide Cleveland Clinics or other facilities in Ohio for citizens who don't presently have the ability to afford health insurance.

Ohio politicians with their decision on not expanding medicaid are the cause of those lay offs.

The clinic is Cleveland's largest employer and the second largest in Ohio after Wal-Mart. It is the largest provider in Ohio of Medicaid health coverage for the poor, the program that will expand to cover uninsured Americans under Obamacare.

"We know we are going to be reimbursed less," under Medicaid, Sheil said.

Well said
Eric and most flibs are sooooooo ignorant[and stupid] they refuse to see what's right in front of them.
You are to stupid to understand the basics of having a bank accounts. I'm going to give you a remedial lesson real quick.

When your local banker makes a mortgage loan, he's using the money from the depositors he collects. He pays the seller for the purchase and holds the mortgage note that has an attached interest rate, over a period of time 10, 15 or 30 years.

That mortgage note has become a security bond with an attached interest rate.

This is how banks make money to pay you interest on your account, other fees involved with a purchaser acquiring a mortgage are kept by the bank.

Similar process is used with other consumer loans the bank makes to it's customers and depositors

Your local bankers than gathers up all of those loans, which now because they have attached interest rates and sells them to the Federal Reserve, in a scheme called Quantitative Easing. The sale of the Loans provide the bank more money to make additional loans the next day. This is not generally a over night transaction, Banks generally collect a few month of that interest on those loans before selling those bonds to the federal reserve of any other competitor looking for security bonds.

None of this purchasing loans from Banks has anything to do with the overall Stock Market. The Stock Market is a reflection of the increase in earnings and profits of the 500 largest corporations in America.

It's a simple process of keeping banks flush with cash for customers who need loans.

The people of the world know better than that -- why was so wrong?

What was so wrong is, that Bush already had predetermined to invade Iraq, once he became president.

No matter from anything else telling (such the case was on finding WMD only but not regime change agenda) he should not, he wanted to match his father Sr. doing war to Iraq previously Iraq.

NO MATTER WHAT, AS IF THERE WAS NO CASE FOR WAR, BUSH WANTED to COMMIT ALL WRONGS TO FORCE AND DICTATE A WAR -- SO MUCH WRONGFULNESS WAS ACTED UPON -- for such serious Iraq failure, Bush had done all that wrongs of any that he would think of , that he held stalemate of UN to take Iraq for regime change just to oust Saddam, with no concern to the immense bad situations so created.(By acting like someone claiming to be a war president to show if a war president could demonstrate military skills and action, yet he could not meet the insurgents all the way, but would make heck of all the troubling problems -- what are a bunch of jokes for follies.

By letting this war-monger president Bush (be) acting on dysfunctional acts, what sort of war president was that--of showing any military specialty and accomplishment , but did more lying and conducting torture than anything else, acting like a Rambo muppet?

You conveniently left this part of the article out.

"We know we're going to get paid differently and reimbursed less to do more," Shiel explained. "It will affect the work force, but we're not sure how yet. There will be a reduction."

Medicaid pays less than insurance companies. Obamacare policies are going to pay less. Expanding Medicaid only helps the state budget and is temporary. I don't know how you conclude that not expanding Medicaid had anything to do with layoffs. Expanding Medicaid only places more patients into the clinic and the clinic gets reimbursed less for it. Reimbursed less means cutting overhead.

You need to read your own links son. The downturn occurred less than one year after Democratic control of the House - all a build up even many noted economic experts predicted as far back as 2005 was inevitable with current spending under Bush, with Greenspan running the reserve;
"The bursting of the U.S. housing bubble, which peaked in 2006,[5] caused the values of securities tied to U.S. real estate pricing to plummet, damaging financial institutions globally.[6][7] The financial crisis was triggered by a complex interplay of policies that encouraged home ownership, providing easier access to loans for (lending) borrowers, overvaluation of bundled sub-prime mortgages based on the theory that housing prices would continue to escalate, questionable trading practices on behalf of both buyers and sellers, compensation structures that prioritize short-term deal flow over long-term value creation, and a lack of adequate capital holdings from banks and insurance companies to back the financial commitments they were making.[8][9][10][11] Questions regarding bank solvency, declines in credit availability and damaged investor confidence had an impact on global stock markets, where securities suffered large losses during 2008 and early 2009. Economies worldwide slowed during this period, as credit tightened and international trade declined.[12] Governments and central banks responded with unprecedented fiscal stimulus, monetary policy expansion and institutional bailouts. In the U.S., Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Financial_crisis...
Your own chart indicates after Q2 of 2009, GDP began a slow, but consistent upward turn - a far cry from what Republican Presidents and a republican Congress left this country with.
You keep thinking you're going to teach someone something, when all of us with a mere semblance of education can research and find out quite clearly you are simply making excuses for a failed republican government that virtually bought this country to the brink of financial collapse.
Bush Tax Cuts were both unfunded, and passed utilizing reconciliation - TWICE!
https://docs.google.com/document/preview...
Stop with the excuses already - you're becoming tiring.
I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.
The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html
The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.
The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place
