I detect not much of a business background in those comments.
The devil is in the details....
now refer to Gordosans post.
In fact I own a business and have since 2005
medicinal marijuana does not count.
1. Obamacare allowed me to insure my new born son and millions of uninsured americans. I figured a conservative would love it since it forces personal responsibility and was a huge giveaway to big insurance. I personally favor a single payer system
2. Combat in Iraq ended in 2010
3. Auto unions took huge haircuts while the US automakers have seen record profits. Its not even debatable
4. In case you haven't figured it out yet, we are in the position we are in because of massive deregulation. Another point that is not debatable. You simply cannot compare the recessions of Reagan and Obama and Reagan spent waaay more money to get the economy going. I believe when adjusted for inflation Government spending was growing twice as fast under Reagan as it currently is under Obama
5. We were losing 800k per month under Bush's last few months and now we are gaining 80k per. Yes, 80k blows historically but when you look at where we were
6.CC reform has been huge for the American consumer and small ticket businesses. Banks were charging businesses 44 cents per transaction! How does that math work for an ice cream vendor selling scoops for $2.50? Just a fuckin bullshit give away to big banks
7. I don't like it from behind but I don't like discrimination either
8. I have never seen a survey that suggests women make the same as men. And references to two women only bolsters my point
9. So we agree that he is dead
10. You're right, we shouldn't bother investing in higher learning or future generations.
this is funny
Not to mention a basic understanding of punctuation and syntax.
He had both Houses of Congress his first two years.
Try again and this time put down the bong.
Obama kicked ass his first two years. Clearly you didn't read my earlier post
The Dems were too much of pussys to push for sweeping reforms and tried to create policies both parties would like. The Repubs would never go for this and it was stupid they even tried.
Mitt Romney 2 years ago was very similar to Obama but has to create a different image under the GOP and the unfortunate way the Tea Party has manipulated them. So now he has to reject his own Health Care bill but come out today raving about the socialized health care that Isreal has. The truth he he isn't against it but has to play like Obama is a socialist to gain votes. Romney could have some great ideas but we don't know what they are. How is he going to create jobs, cutting taxes will increase revenues but if it created more jobs we would have seen it from 05-08. Regardless of who wins until Congress learns how to act and work for the people who voted them in
It's not going to matter and we will start a run of 1 term presidents who never accomplish anything. The GOP really needs to do a better job in creating legit candidates and focus less on bible loving policies pushed by the worst members they have. Dems need to focus on getting their panties out of a wad and make legit concessions that could provide an immediate impact.
you just became one of my favorite posters on Hook'em

The one thing I believe to be true is that the Obamacare/Roberts tax is a give away to the true masters of America- the insurance companies- just as medicare part D is. To he.. with the healthcare needs of senior citizens and working Americans.
Many of us have already been told and agreed to paying our doctors $2,000 up front each year in order to have a Doctor/Patient relationship and receive hopefully adequate medical treatment.

Your last sentence intrigues me. Can you elaborate?
Just curious Comrade but would you list 3 or 4 of those "sweeping reforms" the Dems should have implemented.
Hooksleft or any other Marxist/communist, please name one program that was implemented by the US government that came in under budget and actually improved efficiency?
and you want these guys in charge of our health care system. You are a moron.
Medicare is much more efficient than private insurance. More out of every dollar reaches the patient, not some blowhard like Rick Scott that earns his living by ripping off taxpayers
This explains it. Many of the doctors we use are starting this forcing us to either change doctors or pay thousands.
Apparently you don't have health insurance or know how a health plan works. It's called a deductible. It is the amount you pay before any "benefits" kick in. And a $2,000.00 one these days might qualify as a cadillac plan. That is what we out here in flyover country stake the docs up front...annually.
That isn't close to being true.
You had some intriguing and salient points that while i don't agree with was willing to read. Then you posted this and completely lost me. If medicare were more efficient than private insurance then private insurance companies would be out of business because medicare is the least efficient healthcare system on the planet.
Thats not to say reforms aren't needed but single payer blows. About 90% of my clients are doctors or in medicine in some way shape or form. I have yet to hear from 1 of them that Obamacare will make things more efficient, less expensive or easier to provide quality healthcare.
Love Mad Magazine. Spy v Spy rocked it.
LOL. They owned govt for 2 years and couldn't get anything done because they couldn't get out of their own way. The spent more of their time fighting with each other over how much of other peoples money they wanted to give away and simply ran out of time. Pretty sure the american people taking away their ability to cram crap down peoples throats speaks volumes as to what they thought about their policies and control. The dems tried to overreach.
Romney doesn't have a problem with states handling their own healthcare issues but on a national level thats a different story. His saying anything about Israels healthcare has zero bearing on the turd that is obamacare. He can like how their system is run and works while recognizing its not the POS that was put into place by our govt.
Both parties need to get their panties out of a wad and make legit concessions that provide an immediate impact. Too much of anything is bad whether its food, water or politics. The key is moderation.
