Barack Obama, our next President

Those sickening anti-Americans aka Republicans like cultist Romney and Paul thrive on stealing jobs from Americans so of course they Stop every measure that would lower the unemployment rate. They hate seeing Barack Obama succeed but they won't be able to stop him from being reelected and getting on with restoring America for TRUE Americans.
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.

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.

Obama Campaign Says Slashing Medicare An 'Obama Achievement'
-
http://www.onenewspage.com/n/US/74rdtbud7/Oba...
Certainly saving that much money is a fantastic achievement because millions have already received better medical coverage under ObamaCare. Thanks for pointing that out. The way you wanted to twist it is only for the braindead or brainwashed that listen to druggies like Limbaugh and sexual harrassment jokers like O'Reilly.

What the heck is your beef with having a "public" or a "private" choice?
"The Ryan plan uses the power of market competition to motivate providers to find ways to deliver health care more efficiently. Obama’s plan empowers a new government bureaucracy, the Independent Payment Advisory Board, to issue top down decrees on how providers must deliver health care. By law, IPAB can only propose cuts to health care providers, not beneficiaries."

http://washingtonexaminer.com/morning-examine...

But we know that providers cannot offer the "benefits" for major losses. However you cut it, it will hurt the elderly.

I like the free market model as it allows for competitiveness which may and probably will lower the price.

who eber the dum crap is that dizconts my posts her cuz I cant spel sum words or have fingers dat dont werk with me braain wunz in a wile or be littles me caus dey dunt agre wit me r nuttin but hypociites.

On a more serious note I am quite sure every single one og you libtards understood everything I just said in that obviously misspelled sentence above. There isn't one single libtard on here who doesn't occasionally misspell a word or make a typo error.

Like a typical liberal jerk which most of you happen to be, if you cannot present a cohesive argument against a point made by a conservative post you immediatly pounce on the conservative poster by attacking them in some way, shape, form, or fashion. Failing that the libtards on here always resort to name calling and other juvenile methods to "attack" or to "discredit" the conservative poster.

Your games are all very old and worn out. Your reponses are way too predictable. None of these approaches that you make flatter you in any way. In fact they make a pretty strong statement about your character or should I say your entire lack of character.

Try staying on topic and present your opposing views. If you believe those views to be valid back them up with "facts." I am a conservative, but unlike most of the libtards on here I DO have an open mind and am willing to entertain legitimate discussions about the events discussed on this thread.

You WILL have a very hard time convincing me that running up the debt like the Obama administration has done and continues to do will do anything to "solve" this countries economic woes. I see middle class people in this country suffering every single day because of decisions made by this inept administration. The ranks of the wealthy are not immune either. The ranks of the wealthy are thinning out in this country. We have less millionaires and billionaires now than we did when Obama took office.

The lower class aren't doing much better either. People are still starving. People are still homeless. People are still barely scrapeing by because nothing this administration has touched is actually produceing the desired effect.

For example... Stimulus One was supposed to guarantee that the unemployment rate would drop below 8 percent. It hasn't.

Health care reform was supposed to bring down the cost of health care. It has actually increased the costs of health care.

The pure unadulterated hypocrisy demonstrated by the left wingnuts on here and in the general population sickens me. Lies and hypocrisy are all I see and here from the left.

GO ahead libtards.... Prove me wrong.
