Republicans need to attack as viciously as do the DemoKKKrats, including the low-class clown in the White House, who is more butler than President.
Cons do son.

That's about all the right wing nuts know to do.

Written in June 2013 before Obama bungled Syria and really became Putin’s bitch (no wonder he flipped on gay marriage):
Wussy Diplomacy at Work
When Obama sought the Presidency he promised a new approach to foreign policy. Under Bush and “cowboy diplomacy”(a/k/a Balls) our relations were at an all-time low as depicted by Obama and the left. He would use his charm and reason to win foreign nations to our side and cause. He would even accomplish this remarkable feat with our adversaries.
Step one… an apology tour of the Middle East to gain their respect…
Step two…
It definitely worked with our leftist allies. His initial speech in Berlin in 2008 attracted a crowd of over 100,000. He was adored by socialist Europe for the simple fact that he wasn’t Bush. He even won a Nobel Peace Prize for that “accomplishment”.
This month (June 2013) Obama returned to Berlin, and attracted a crowd of… less than 5000. The message from Europe is clear “The Thrill is Gone”.
Europe has finally learned that when it comes to the man behind the curtain; it’s all just SMOKE & MIRRORS.
These theatrics may have assured one of the WORST Presidents in American history a second term but the price the U.S. will continue to pay for this social/racial expunging will take decades to unravel.
“Since his first day in office, President Barack Obama’s foreign policy has rested on outreach: resetting ties with Russia, building a partnership with China and offering a fresh start with antagonistic leaders from Iran to Venezuela. But the global travels on Monday of NSA turncoat Edward Snowden highlight the limits of that approach. Leaders Obama has wooed – and met recently – were willing to snub the American president.”— Reuters
Perhaps he earned the title of being called a killer and murderer then?

Lies, More Lies and Damn Lies...

Obama solemnly pledged on June 5, 2008:“In an Obama administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year….. We’ll do it by the end of my first term as President of the United States.”

"Something that's going to take care of itself"? Is that like Medicare and Social Security taking care of itself?

Democrats won't even talk about reforming either knowing full well neither are going to "take care of themselves" because both are unsustainable.

So how do you suppose the government will manage all of our health care on top of these other two messes it can't manage?

Are you really not getting this?

Uh no sorry. Each sate will have its own exchanges. No insurance will be sold across state lines. What if you move to another state?

As the Oct. 1 launch date for healthcare exchanges nears, the Obama administration is continuing to tout lower premiums and more coverage for all Americans. But a new report from the Government Accountability Office indicates the Affordable Care Act is going to be anything but affordable for Millennials.

The report details insurance premiums paid nationwide in 2013 and was conducted in response to a request from Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah). Though the GAO’s findings could be altered based on a number of variables, one finding remained constant: rates are going to rise for young people.

As The Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein noted, a 30-year-old male with a yearly income of $35,000 would have to pay close to $3,000 to purchase the Affordable Care Act’s cheap “bronze plan.” That amount, Klein said, is more expensive than any state’s rates in the current system.

And though the Obama administration comforts wary citizens with the hope of subsidies, premiums for young people will still more than they are now,even after receiving those subsidies. Klein reports that a 30-year-old earning $25,000 in 2014 would have to pay $1,142 annually for the bronze plan — a rate more expensive than that currently paid in 45 states, as the GAO’s report shows.

In an effort to entice young people to purchase healthcare under the Affordable Care Act, the White House has engaged in a multi-million dollar marketing campaign, attempting to enlist the help of sports teams, singers and actors to promote it. Additionally, states operating their own exchanges are getting creative with ways to reach Millennials, purchasing advertisements on portable toilets and cell phone charging systems.

But in order for Obamacare to work and premiums for the elderly to remain at low costs, the administration needs to convince 2.7 million 18- to 35-year-olds to enroll in the exchanges. Even with rates holding steady at current levels, not enough young people are covered to subsidize coverage for those with pre-existing conditions — namely senior citizens.

My God, Flack. Get a f*cking grip.

The GAO answered the question of what would happen if the cost saving measures were no longer valid.

You people are just plain dumber than sh*t.

What wouldn't add to the debt if you continues spending but cut the funding.

GOP Senator Knowingly Distorts GAO Report He Commissioned To Launch Most Dishonest Attack On Obamacare To Date -

Last week, the right-wing blogosphere gleefully erupted in response to Senator Jeff Sessions’(R-Ala.) disclosure of a new Government Accounting Office report that, according to the Senator, reveals that the Affordable Care Act will increase our national debt by a stunning $6.2 trillion.

Speaking at a Budget Committee meeting, Sessions announced—

“According to GAO, under a realistic set of assumptions, the health care law will increase the deficit by…roughly $6.2 trillion over the next 75 years.”

Take note of the Senator’s statement that the finding is based on ‘a realistic set of assumptions’ as this is, as you will see, at the very heart of Senator Sessions’ extraordinary deception—one designed to purposefully and cynically mislead the American public.

The first track assessed the impact Obamacare might have on the long-term national debt should the law be carried out exactly as it is written and currently exists.

In response this question, the GAO study reported,“The primary deficit declined 1.5 percentage points as a share of GDP over the 75-year period in this (GAO’s Baseline Extended) simulation.”

That is a very good and highly encouraging number—and one that Senator Sessions somehow forgot to mention during his media blitz. Go figure.

The second analysis required the GAO to project what might happen to the long-term national debt under the following circumstances; (a) Congress acts to end each and every one of the tax provisions that are a critical part of the financing mechanism for the law,(b) each and every cost cutting measure in the law fails completely, and (c) every dollar of spending under the law remaining completely untouched.

In other words, Senator Sessions constructed the absolute “worst case” scenario for the second part of the study.

It was the result of this second line of inquiry that produced the projected deficit in the $6.25 trillion range—not, by the way, a projection of what the GAO believes is going to happen but rather the projection based on the data the GAO was required to use in conducting this part of the study.
