<quoted text>First of all you putz, your state has the highest rate of uninsured people in the country - over 25% of Texan's have NO health insurance;

"With a full 25 percent of those living in his state existing with zero patient protection and no real access to care—affordable or otherwise—how can Perry logically state the the Medicaid expansion, with the bill to be picked up almost exclusively by Uncle Sam, does not result in more affordable care or better patient protection? That simply makes no sense…not that Rick Perry has ever shown much in the way of concern when it comes to applying common sense in the face of a tasty political narrative designed to shine a little light on the publicity starved Texas governor."

Even though Uncle Sam picks up the entire tab for your state through 2020, you and your retarded governor say no. No wonder Texas has the worst public school system in America - they purposely want you to remain stupid.

As to all your so called jobs, your state leads every other state in the nation in low / minimum wage jobs - job creation my azz;

""We are home to fewer than one in 10 Americans ... but four in 10 new American jobs are in our state," he told a conference of state legislators from around the nation this week.

But that doesn't mean that all is well with employment in the Lone Star State. Texas leads the nation in minimum-wage jobs, and many positions don't offer health benefits. Also, steep budget cuts are expected to result in the loss of more than 100,000 jobs.

Perhaps most importantly, Texas can't create jobs fast enough to keep up with its rapidly growing population. Since 2007, the state's number of working-age residents expanded by 6.6%, nearly twice the national average.

Factoring in that population growth means Texas would need to create another 629,000 jobs, or 5.6% more positions, just to reach its pre-recession employment level, according to the Economic Policy Institute"

Fools easily led - that be you!
"Perhaps most importantly, Texas can't create jobs fast enough to keep up with its rapidly growing population."

Because all Liberals are leaving California at a rate of 2,000 a week!!!

But Texans are not allowing Libtards from damaging their great state with their "fairness" crap!

Liberals are being forced to accept Conservatism if they want to enjoy the low taxes and freedom of Texas!

Or else leave!!!

Liberals, do not mess with Texas!!!

<quoted text>Do you mean like the pictures where Obama was photoshopped into the command center when Panetta killed bin Laden?

Which of the three photos was your favorite?

Did you like the first photo released with Obama to the right of the display coordinator and seemingly lookin gat the display with a sincere expression?
Or, did you like the photo they replaced that one with where Obama was to the right of the display coordinator and grinning at the camera like a highschool prankster?
Or, did you like the photo they replaced that one with where Obama is to the left of the display coordinator and Joe Biden magically appears in the photo?

Don't you like how everyone else in the photo has the exact same position and expression in all three photos?

<quoted text>According to the CBO, those that do have health insurance will lose it for their family members because they fall into a donut hole. Their employers can't afford to pick up the tab and they make too much to go to the alleged "insurance exchange" (which has yet to be set up). That leaves a family of 4 looking at a minimum of $20,000.00 a year for health insurance with high deductibles and enormous co-pays. How is this an improvement over the way it was before Odumbocare. Oh, yes, it gave Obungler, Pelosi and Reid an inside track on the publicly offered insurance companies on wall street. IT has NEVER been about having coverage for everyone.
Say it again:

"IT has NEVER been about having coverage for everyone."

Also, Libtards believe there are not death panels and no abortion neither!

Also, they Libtards believe gays will not get free sex changes paid by straight males!

Also Libtards think AIDS will be just another covered disease and not a powerful political statement!!!

See? Libtards has turned AIDS in to a political status, LOL!!!

Of you have AIDS, then you get immediate rights that other people do not have!!!

This will be true until the cost of providing the equal-outcome health insurance to everyone who doesn't do the above becomes so great there won't be enough health care assets available to provide for everyone ObamaKare mandates, and the rules of supply and demand take over and drive the cost of health care through the goddam ceiling.

<quoted text>Listen stupid - your low wage jobs don't offer health insurance dummy - or have you not read the articles pertaining to your state?

25% of TEXAN'S HAVE NO HEALTH INSURANCE - 25%!

Again, the highest in the nation.

You have had death panels for years - they are called "Claims Processors" - hired specifically to to tell you "your claim is not eligible" - or did you not know this either?

BTW - hoe does one become "a student of your profession" when your professiobn are minimum wage jobs? Explain this! Explain why the overwhelming majority of jobs in your state are minimum wage jobs.

"

If Texas Governor Rick Perry finally launches his endlessly alluded to presidential campaign, he will no doubt continue to tout the state's robust job growth as evidence of his economic qualifications.

That Texas has exhibited strong job growth is beyond dispute: the Dallas Federal Reserve found that 37% of all net new American jobs between June 2009 and April 2011 -- that's about 262,000 -- were created in Texas, and the state's unemployment rate of 8.2 percent is below the national average. Perry cites such data as vindicating the his business-friendly economic policies, including a lack of a state or corporate income tax.

But low-wage jobs play an outsize role in powering Texas' economic engine. The majority of the state's workforce is paid an hourly wage rather than a salary, and 9.5 percent of those workers earned the minimum wage or below compared to about 6 percent for the rest of the nation, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. From 2007 to 2010, the number of minimum wage workers in Texas rose from 221,000 to 550,000, an increase of nearly 150 percent. Hourly wage workers' median salary of $11.20 per hour in 2010 lagged behind the national median of $12.50.

Texas DO NOT NEED HEALTH INSURANCE, they pay cash, out of pocket, like the old good times, DUH!!!

Medical bills are low cause Conservative are running the state so every one benefit!!!

Compare to Michigan and California!!!

A dental cleaning in California would cost $1,000 while same in Texas only $200 CASH!!!

When Capitalism rules EVERYONE benefits!

Well, that is, in a capitalist system. With the Marxist system Obama and the Democrats have in mind, everything you earn for yourself will be taken away from you to spread your earned wealth among everyone who won't do anything for themselves.

Better off listening to Faux News dummy.

Now stick this up your azz - right from Texas you fcuking dope;

"Texas is the uninsured capital of the United States. More than 6.3 million Texans - including 1.2 million children - lack health insurance. Texas' uninsurance rates, 1.5 to 2 times the national average, create significant problems in the financing and delivery of health care to all Texans. Those who lack insurance coverage typically enjoy far-worse health status than their insured counterparts. "

In case you were in a coma that day, Obama didn't have a clue the operation to kill bin Laden was even happening. He thought he'd be playing f**k*ng golf all goddam day.

The WMDs are where Valerie Plame told Bush they would be before Robert Novak outed her.
And, you danced away from my post like a fat penguin with a club foot. How about you go back and address the points I made.

Then, tell us where Obama was during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment in Benghazi when orders came from the White House for the AC-130 and Force Recon Marine units to disregard their default orders to respond to an attack on the embassy in Libya and hung the Americans in Benghazi out to dry while they watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real-time video feed?

Any study of history will cause anyone to concur with that statement.

They just don't get it. The more you take from someone to give to someone else, the less each of those people will do. Eventually, there just won't be any wealth to redistribute. When that happens, they will get even less than what they are being given today.
And, we gain the same living standard that empoverished every Marxist country that has ever existed in history.
