Good link.
"PJM Interconnection, the company that operates the electric grid for 13 states, including Ohio, recently held its 2015 capacity auction. This gave the first real indication of just how drastic the effects of Obama's war on coal will be. The market-clearing price for new 2015 capacity was $136 per megawatt.
That's eight times higher than the price for 2012, which was just $16 per megawatt. In Pennsylvania, the new market price is $167 per megawatt — 10 times higher. In northern Ohio, which is suffering from more forced coal-plant retirements than the rest of the region, the 2015 price is an astounding $357 per megawatt."
That so called idiot briar, a NO Americanman who lives in Kentucky need not report for work. His brain is stuck in reverse...

Is President Obama free from sin?

What are his poor qualities?

Carol plans for Obama to lose, therefore he will not get a chance to fix the mess he created over the last four years.
Hello Carol, hope you are well.
Correct. Hi Peppy. Yes, I'm doing well, thank you. Except Obama's mentality is giving me a headache.

You care about nothing of the sort. You could care less if this nation goes belly up under this massive debt and nearly half the country on government checks.
How is that going to help anyone, Jean? How is that going to help the poor? Who's going to have any money left to help them?
You are a poor misguided liberal who will be the first one to scratch your head and say "wha' happened?" still believing the government can save us.
And you liar don't tell me what I care about . You can't even keep your own thoughts straight for ten minutes because you're such a pathological liar.

We will see the drastic cuts to Medicare in order to pay for ObamaCare starting in January when they cut payments for doctor visits to 31% Hmmmm, in fairness shouldn't they do this for Medicaid too? But back to the Senior, many doctors are declining to serve Medicare patients.

The one reason, the one word reason, the only keyword reason jobs and the economy are stagnate is the word a sellout "obama"...

If not for obama's "War on Prosperity" and putting the cart (obamakare) before the donkey (jobs) 4 years ago... libtards would not be defending a terrible economy and No jobs in obama's 9th inning of failure this year...

There will be NO home runs or grand slam on the economy or jobs in the final inning of obama's play selling out America......

The facts according to Jean give me an eerie reminder of the world according to Garp.
Medicare is a fine compromise as long as it is a sustainable program. Under Obama it is not. Obama's expansion of coverage while cutting $700 billion of funding for medicare is absolute nonsense.
You obviously know nothing about the cuts. Quel surpris!

<quoted text>Sheeeat on a splinter, Carol, but you'd believe Satan if he had an R in his designation. "To listen to the Romney/Ryan ticket, you’d think the official title for their Medicare reform proposal began with the word “bipartisan.” That prefix refers to Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon who joined Paul Ryan on a proposal to remake Medicare along premium-support lines. Wyden, however, has been angrily rejecting the claim that his plan is similar to Romney’s.“Gov. Romney is talking nonsense,” he said in a statement.
To be honest, however, the two plans look fairly similar to me. So I asked Wyden: How, specifically, are they different? An edited transcript of our conversation follows.
Ezra Klein: Governor Romney says his approach to Medicare reform is bipartisan because you’ve endorsed it. You say that’s wrong. So what, specifically, is the difference between your approaches?
Ron Wyden: My view is that the policies that were adopted by the Republican House majority and the Romney campaign do not preserve the Medicare guarantee. And that’s what the [Ryan/Wyden] white paper was all about. It was a set of options for improving on the existing Medicare system with public and private choices, beefing up consumer protection, adopting a new way to control costs and put Medicare on a budget so you can protect the guarantee.
Probably the two most significant specific differences between what Governor Romney is talking about and the white paper is, first, that the Romney campaign and the governor would repeal the Affordable Care Act. To lay a foundation for putting together a program to protect the guarantee and protect the budget, you need the changes the Affordable Care Act makes to Medicare, like bundled payments and moving the system towards pay-for-quality. Without it, you can’t move to premium support.
The second difference is that the Romney approach completely pulls the rug out from under the poorest and most vulnerable seniors. In the white paper, protections for so-called dual eligibles, the people in both Medicare and Medicaid, are bulletproof. There’s no way to throw them under the bus. Gov. Romney says he’d block grant the Medicaid program and push those cuts onto the people, which would do enormous harm to those people whose protection was at the center of the white paper.
When you wrote the white paper with Ryan, however, Ryan was already pushing his budget, which block grants Medicaid and repeals the Affordable Care Act. Those ideas have been core to the political project Ryan has been engaged in over the last few years. And he didn’t abandon them to sign onto your paper. So how is this different?
Straight from the horse's mouth:

Ron Wyden: "It was a set of options for improving on the existing Medicare system with public and private choices, beefing up consumer protection, adopting a new way to control costs and put Medicare on a budget so you can protect the guarantee."

What the heck is your beef with having a "public" or a "private" choice?

May be. But, I am deeply concern about the huge hikes in electricity starting in 3 years. Who can afford to pay 8 to 10 times what they pay now for electricity. Obama's war on coal is hurting the Seniors, the poor and the middle class.

"... 9,000 acres of public land to ENN for the bargain price of just $4.5 million ($500 per acre) in December 2011..."

when it appraised for:
"...for between $30 million and $39 million."

I don't have to lie about it. It's a FAct.
If you vote republican you oppose Medicare.An entitlement.Socialism, Marxism ., welfare you call it out of one side of your rightwing mouthes as you declare you're saving it out the other side. You cannot be a republican and realistically and honestly support medicare.
The reason we have Medicare is because there was NO choice! There is less choice today. Without government intervention there is NO CHOICE for the elderly, sick and poor. In fact anyone with even a simple preexisting condition. Don't ever try to sell that crap to anyone with a brain. You try to buy into private insurance if you're even in your 50's. Forget it. Unless your employer gives coverage. Forget it.
Freedom of Choice went out the window with Obama Care. Obama stole $700 billion from Medicare to fund Obama Care. That means seniors and disabled will not be granted necessary tests because Medicare funding has been taken away.
It won't matter that you have a preexisting condition if the board of 16 says you are too sick,too old, and a bad risk to outlay the money on you. That is what government run health care will be.
Obama Care gets rid of Advantage policies, seniors will have to go elsewhere. Hum, I do remember a talking point of Obama's, "You will not lose your healthcare coverage with ObamaCare".
Employers faced with the cost of insuring more folks, will either take the buy-out and pay the $8,000 per employee, or fold their businesses. It will be unsustanable to small business to afford it.
Obama is such a remarkable liar. So much so you still believe him.
Quite pathetic.
