The senate actually brought the teabaggers number up.
That seems strange, seeing that Tea Partiers and Tea Party backed candidates CONTINUE to be elected? BTW where did you get that information? You might as well stop grasping at straws. Nobama is done. Socialism... I mean liberalism has finally been seen for the lie it is. Come November we will get some real CHANGE! What's even stranger is the FACT that the senate has not passed a budget since nobama was immaculated. That happens to be a CONSTITUTIONALLY MANDATED duty of the senate. I wonder why that isn't getting any more attention, as if I didn't know. Keep on talking, you're doing great! Tea Party 2012!

Those making under 10k will still be going to the ER. Illegals of course won't be fined as well, and will be checked at the clinics the government is building. And they want to loosen the immigration laws to allow foreign docs who work for half price to come in, to cover doc shortages because of the influx of the newly insured. And covering pre existing does not mean you will receive the meds, surgeries, or therapies, you may actually need.. Sounds like so much for keeping cost down with the trips to the ER. And just where did these docs study at, from other countries. And the word is out, come to America, ICE has been told to trust by obama that You are the dream act ages, come one, come all. Wow sounds to good to be true. "Free healthcare" for those crossing border, expect the flow to increase tenfold...

The president submits the budget the congress and senate tweak it in their committees, if congress rewrites the whole damned thing, it's no longer the presidents budget, it's congresses budget and that's exactly what happened.
As far as Ryan's idea for medicare, it still puts your care in the hands of for profit insurance companies who still strive for maximum profit.
Like the existing HMO's, they were supposed lower cost.
Cost never went down or were even contained.

How many times does Obama utter the word "I" when he gives a speech. He has so much concern for his fellow countrymen and women, that he calls them, "they and the enemy". And also Obama says if they bring a knife to the table, we bring a gun to the fight. He mocks us all, the taxpayers, as when he laughed that jobs were not so shovel ready with Immelt the GE CEO, his economic advisor wasting one trillion of our money. And his "you didn't build that", showing how Anti American Business he really is. He threw untold millions at failed green companies, knowing that these companies would fold one year later... Should we show true compassion for those that are greedy, and selfish emotionally such as those featured in a welfare video by Nancy Pelosi's daughter, should that be our empathy to the four baby mommas, and I am here to get some Obama bucks. It appears the dumbing down of the culture, rests within this video. On the other hand, we provide for our own families and tend to our own responsibilities, are chastised by others for doing what we should be doing, unlike the video words spoken. Sorry this is not what America is about, is it really, a bunch of government sucking sponges. That is not true compassion to allow this to go unnoticed and pretend it is okay, it is called get a job, take care of your own, instead of relying on the taxpayers. We know what is going on today, why close your eyes to the truth. Pander to your voter's base obama. http://www.youtube.com/watch...

The president can propose a budget and the house can propose a budget. It's not solely the president's responsibility. The house version passed the house and the president's proposal was rejected even by democrats it was so bad.

What's your problem with profit? You work for a profit. There are various types of insurance. Some are nonprofit. Some places are self insured like religious organizations that will be forced to go against their beliefs. I'll take private over a government screw up every time. Government run healthcare will bring us back to 1950's medicine. The states are already limiting the number of prescriptions under Medicaid. Government doesn't produce anything to warrant the money it has. It can only ration.

The rising cost of medicine is directly caused by government and its mandates. I just read where the additional taxes on surgical supply companies will force them to produce overseas.

GM PROFITS PLUNGE 41%, ObamaMotors does what everything Obama touches does…….it’s tanked. Taxpayers face more losses.

JOBLESS CLAIMS RISE...pivot pivot pivot pivot pivot……..I guess Obama pivoting isn’t working.

Obama speaks with world leader while holding baseball bat? Well I tell ya Premier, I can’t throw the ball 60 feet so, I’m gonna try to hit one 60 feet……........but anything Obama does will end up a sacrifice.

Union leader strives to ease president's 'white guy problem'...Now that the writing is on the wall for the Obama Campaign, it is clear that the white voters Obama wrote off early in the campaign may come back to haunt him since his idea of divide America and conquer didn’t work.

LOl, Conservatives will simply lie about anything. Not oly is GM the Top auto manufacturer since the bailout. They posted profits that beat expectations

(Reuters)- General Motors Co (GM.N) posted a stronger-than-expected quarterly profit as its loss in Europe was not as bad as feared, and its results were boosted by delayed spending in North America.

Analysts said GM's North American outperformance added 14 cents to the second-quarter results, helping the company top Wall Street's expectations by 16 cents.

It should bother you that you need to lie in order to support your beliefs....but y9oure a conservative so truth has no meaning!

Reuters and AP are no longer reliable news sources. They are shills for the DNC.

General Motors' profits fell 41% in the second quarter as troubles in Europe undercut strong sales in North America.

America's largest automaker made $1.5bn in the second quarter of 2012, compared with $2.5bn for the same period last year. Revenue fell to $37.6bn from $39.4bn in the second quarter of 2011. The results exceeded analysts' estimates, but further underlined Europe's drag on the US economy.

Same goes for yahoo news, talk about in the tank for obama. Just read the comments after these articles to get the "full" prospective... And the stock price means the taxpayers lose on the bailout, say who is going to bail the college kids out, the next bubble is student loan debt for one trillion, also private student loans, parent loans, etc....... and no jobs in the obama economy. I bet these grads are just waiting to cast their vote for this abject failure, the youth vote is gone, especially the recent grads, no hope of a job, and the change well for starters back home with mom and pop, who won't be voting for obama either.... Why didn't he help these kids and the unemployment picture by fostering a environment that is job friendly, all they wanted was a job with their degree, and 53 percent have no hope...... Mr. President you have failed us.

All TRADITIONAL AMERICAN VALUES! America was founded on the belief that the INDIVIDUAL left to it's own devices will fair better than than those relegated to a "mob" mentality. It is a PROVEN FACT that people when lumped together and made to work for the "collective". Inevitably many stop contributing and just take. Eventually the takers overtake the producers, and you get what Europe is going through now. You run out of other people's $! Republicans support The Tea Party. What type of people make up the TP? Educated, middleclass, Christian, hetrosexuals who believe in traditional American values. They believe in a smaller, restricted gov't. That less taxes for all makes for wealthier citizens. Wealthier citizens support the economy because they are also CONSUMERS. Americans happen to have some of the BIGGEST, HIGH END, CONSUMERS, why? Because they have MORE DISPOSABLE INCOME, why? CAPITALISM that's why! Capitalism has afforded more of its citizens a higher standard of living than any other in history. Liberals support OWS, why? I really have no idea why you would support those who have shown they are nothing but a bunch of spoiled brats, crimminals, and parasites. They have been arrests numbering in the thousands. They have been arrested for everything from destruction of property to killing. They have engaged in anti-semitism and anti-American rhetoric. They have defecated on police vehicles, the flag, and war memorials. They do and sell drugs. Their camps are unsanitary. They leave the places they "occupy" trashed. Why the (D) support these thugs, I don't know. My bad, I forgot I just described the democrapic parties BASE! I'll tell you the same thing I've told other socialist... I mean liberals. If liberalism is YOUR idea of a better educated, more highly evolved and enlightened people, you can have it! All I see is a manifestation of incompetence. I'd much prefer to be an American hick, than a useful idiot! BTW come November, you're going to see alot more just like me, because we're going to send you a$$clowns packing! Tea Party 2012!

Do you really think that everyone in the tea party is republican, male, elderly, white, religious, etc.. get real, women abound in the tea party, have you forgotten the fake war on women. Twitter broke all records when they came after Ann Romney, are favorite stay at home mom, she spoke for millions out there. And what is wrong with owning a gun, it is our God given right! And we want to cling to a bible or not, another God given right. And many of us were democrats when we were younger, including myself and my Husband, having both cast a vote for the Peanut Farmer, never again. And btw black baptist pastors are about to come out against Obama and the gay marriage stance... stay tuned.
