“CBO and JCT estimate that enacting both pieces of legislation—H.R. 3590 and the reconciliation proposal—would produce a net reduction in federal deficits of $143 billion over the 2010–2019 period as result of changes in direct spending and revenues.”
When Congressional Republicans sought to repeal the law, CBO found that eliminating the law would increase the deficit. CBO wrote:
“[T]he effect of H.R. 2 on federal deficits as a result of changes in direct spending and revenues is likely to be an increase in the vicinity of $230 billion, plus or minus the effects of technical and economic changes to CBO’s and JCT’s projections for that period.”
And just last month, in updating its estimates of key parts of the law, CBO estimated that the insurance coverage provisions of the health care law would, compared to last year’s estimates for the same time period, cost $50 billion less.

Homer,
How many times do we have to go over this.
Had Saddam not invaded Kuwait, upon depletion and total destruction of his own countrys' sovereignty, and started that actual "playbook for war" front, thus then also involving allies such as us, Britian, France..etc., Kuwait having denied (and even blackballed) the "allied" offerings of those such as bin-Laden against Saddam, things might have been different.
Clintons era was more having to watch the PLO raising havoc on Israel..Somalia..and Bosnia (under NATO) and Kosovo..as well as few air missles landed on Saddams (there's THAT name again!!) head.
Are you 50 Homer? Inkquiring mind are wunduhring-they "alll" bundle lol.
Dear Dummy, I am talking about the 2003 invasion. Totally unnecessary. A perfectly aimed missile directly at Saddam's head would have kept the next guy in line perfectly in check.

Why 2012 is not 1980
With Obama maintaining a small but persistent lead in national polls — and a seemingly larger one in key swing states — the Romney campaign has taken to comparing this race to the 1980 campaign, in which Jimmy Carter held a lead until voters swung sharply to Ronald Reagan in the final stretch.“Romney aides believe strongly that this race will play out like the 1980 campaign,” Byron York wrote recently.
This race will all but certainly tighten this fall, and it remains a toss up. But the comparison to 1980 struck me as flawed. I checked in with former Reagan adviser Ed Rollins, who worked communications on that campaign, and he agrees — there are very significant differences that make a last minute swing far less likely.
Reason one: Obama is a better and more likable politician than Jimmy Carter was, and Romney has not proven himself to be Ronald Reagan.
“There’s no question that on his best day, he’s not a Ronald Reagan,” Rollins said of Romney.“Traditionally incumbents don’t do as well in debates as challengers for the simple reason that challengers have to stand on the stage and look like an equal. Romney can do that, but Obama is good. He’s likeable. Carter was never likeable.”
“Romney is not proving yet that he has the solutions,” Rollins adds, noting that Carter had a very bad debate moment on nuclear proliferation. Obama is unlikely to make any major mistakes in the debates. Reagan hammered Carter for mismanaging the economy and national security; Obama is far harder to attack on the latter front.
Reason two: The electorate is far more polarized now. Rollins notes that a last-minute shift was enabled by the larger role Dem swing voters played at the time.“There was a big swing element in the Democratic Party — blue collar Democrats,” Rollins noted.“It’s smaller now.”
What’s more, this election will hinge heavily on base turnout, and the geographical area at play is far narrower than in 1980.“The battlefield is much smaller — it’s a totally different electorate,” Rollins says.
Reason three: Rollins notes that both campaigns — unlike in 1980 — will have all the resources they need, which limits the likelihood of a last minute swing and could reinforce the role of the base in the outcome.”Obama has put an enormous sum into building his infrastructure,” Rollins says.“With such a saturation in TV buying between now and the election, things aren’t going to break through.”
If Romney is to win, it will have to be “ground out” over time, Rollins says, adding that a last minute dramatic swing “is awful hard to envision.”

The demographics are different too, we are not as white as in 1980 and while racism is still alive and well in this country it is slowly dying. The Republicans for the most part are the party of white people.

Romney just happens to be ONE of the TWO choices.

Many will vote for him as well.

Perhaps YOU should look into the REALITY of peoples Consitutional RIGHTS to do so, peaceably.
