The last time I filed was when I filled out a 2009 1040, various Schedules and forms. There is no such thing as the 1040 books numbnuts. Obama should come out with a new form for you Demolosers. The 1040 for a Dopes!

This is not exactly a true picture..... have you forgotten the Auto and Bank Bailout were the brain child of the Stalwart Republican George Bush and those deals were established and in place prior to the Elections in 2008........ may you forgot but the rest of the nation hasn't forgotten the Bailout TARP Provided GM, Chrysler, and the 600 Banks throughout America...... The Auto Mobile Bailout was negotiated by the Bush Administration in Oct and Nov 2008, when GM and Chrysler received a $8 Billion "Bridge Loan" in Dec 2008 with instructions to reorganize and bring back the plan prior to March 2009.......
One of the 'KEY" conditions to receiving the rest of the TARP Funding were that GM and Chrysler had to get the UAW to tear up their contract and agree to accept wages and compensation benefits that would be in line with what the Foreign Automobile Manufacturs were paying their American Workers...... A Marxist Negotiating scheme similar to the Reagan ploy used against the Air Traffic Controll Union.......

No, it does not make me cringe. Millions of people and politicians belong to both parties and they both have their share of corruption.
What makes me cringe is idiots that bring up criminal acts like they "define" the party. That makes the Republican party a closet gay party doesn't it? Well except for the "Log Cabin" group that brought the suit and decision on Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Does that make you cringe or are you now so proud of you party for coming out of the closet.
Criminals are criminals.
You betcha.

The democRATic party and their leadership is an utterly despicable, corrupt, cronyistic, inept cadre of radical leftist lawbreakers.

So in which jail should we lock away Bark, Michelle, and the rest of their party?

Where did you dig up your piece of work Chimera?
Why is it you lefties never cite your sources? Are you afraid a rational person will dispute your source?
If you do a search for the first line of his post, you will see that this is part of the democratic/communist party talking points that is repeated again and again on blog after blog.

I would bet that this is a standard talking points post that those who are paid to post from the far left are told to use.

In just the few years since Obama and the democrats took total control of our country,

our economy is now in shambles,

almost a trillion dollars was wasted in the name of stimulus to pay off the left wing special interest groups,

Unemployment has gone up to almost 10%,

The terrorists and our enemies are thumbing their noses at us,

the healthcare fiasco which will destroy our healthcare system has been rammed through against the will of the people,

corruption abounds in Washington with corrupt politicians thriving on our dime,

bills are passed that aren't even read,

we are losing the war in Afghanistan,

obama has taken innumerable vacations, golf outings, concerts, parties, taxpayer subsidized date nights,

we have had a environmental disaster in the gulf totally mismanaged by the administration,

Obama has attacked the cambridge police dept and in the process inflamed race relations,

Obama has been involve in a job for political favor scandal with Sestak and romanoff,

We have unelected officials/czars making policy without any oversight,

and this is only scratching the surface of the incompetence of Obama and the democrats.

And yet in middle of this disastrous performance by Obama and the democrats, Obama is parading around the country telling people that he has much more to do.

Well America can not take any more of what Obama thinks are accomplishments,

it is time to retire democrat control of congress and start taking back our country.

Yep!

No one should forget what happened after January 20th, 2007, when the DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS.

The DemoncRATS have....

• doubled unemployment,
• created record poverty,
• created record food stamp enrollment,
• created record foreclosures,
• created record-low private sector pay,
• created record-high government pay,
• created record death tolls in Afghanistan,
• tripled the deficit,
• quadrupled the national debt,
• undertaken government takeovers of our economy,
• added ruinous new taxes and regulations,
• legislated trillions in payoffs to state unions and union pensions,
• ruined our healthcare system, and
• crippled business, confidence, and prosperity in America.

Check out Myth # 4 Moonbat.
So you won't read the CURRENT study just released which addressed your myth #4, instead you quote an article from 2009 from and article that is self referential. Just because you guys are stupid and can't think for yourselves doesn't mean everyone is. You are as transparent a hack as I have seen anywhere, a joke.

For anybody of you clowns with ANY objectivity left, here's the study itself all foot noted and sciency-like: http://content.healthaffairs.org/cgi/reprint/...

And for the truly dense, here's where it was archived: http://www.healthaffairs.org/

It's the first article, not that any of you will read it. And then go find all the old right wing sources you can find to refute it. Like Waxman here did. Had to go back a year or so, but reading some of his previous posts we know the truth on a subject doesn't mean anything.

I await with suppressed laughter the coming onslaught. Don't disappoint, now.

Oh no, couldn't be Bush's fault, couldn't be anybody's fault but Dems, right. You guys aren't even allowed to have discussions are you? Just rant the right wing Republican drivel and that's it. Sad, sad creatures.
WTF?!!

Don't want discussions?!! Are you referring the locked-out, closed-door, backroom deals with the democRATS and big pharma and big insurance, along with their blatant lies and payoff thuggery to buy votes?

Yeah, just more weak-assed, whacked obamatronic propagandist drivel.

Why do Republican voters support the same failed policies that created the financial collapse? Most Democrats, however,(who are a diverse group that has been challenged to understand and relate to others different than themselves) have developed and evolved into a party that studies and understands the issues. We speak out on the issues because we can even if it is intimidating to “some” no matter what --- and not because we have a hidden agenda based on greed.

Republican voters must not place themselves in a position to serve any demagogue who reaches out to them even if they are having a hard time weighing the issues or processing what they are being told. In fact, candidates like Kasich try to make it seem like the voters need him to tell them what to do. But, it is always a dangerous sign when a leader fails to serve the citizenry and instead serves and speaks for businesses --- and is backed by those businesses.(Rich Germans backed Hitler.) A leader should represent the needs of the citizenry not serve as the “front” for businesses that need him to support loopholes... incentives... and/or the tax cuts that they want.

At 58, Kasich knows better but has always counted on the Ohio voter to remain in the dark. This campaign season, he says he has to cut taxes to ensure that more businesses move to Ohio but he already knows:“the business inventory tax is being phased out, utility poll taxes were eliminated sometime ago, 81% of Ohio companies pay no more than $2000 a year in income tax, and workers compensation taxes have been quite low for several years.”Based on this information, it is plain to see that he is just counting on the voters to remain lazy and uninformed.

He also knows that he has a record that says he cannot govern. In fact, his solution for balancing budgets has already been tested, tried and has already failed. His plan (in the past) included supporting:“financial deregulation, NAFTA, welfare reform, and any greed bubbles that appealed to someone with his morality such as the housing bubble, etc.--- all built on pro-business policies (loopholes, incentives, low taxes, and outsourcing) and the “steal from the poor” entitlement spending cuts.” But he does not seem to know that we know that these ideas all led to the collapse and will lead to more financial failure if this formula is used again.

What he is really hoping for is that voters do not remember that the Ohio Republican Party failed to create jobs for seven long years.“The state began losing jobs in 2000, including seven years when Republicans held the governor’s office and both houses of the legislature until January 2009. Republican George W. Bush was president for eight of those years.” In fact, the Republican Party and their programs and/or policies as a whole, set the stage for the failure and the collapse of the U.S. economy that took Ohio jobs with it.

But the real question of all questions that he has failed to answer is: Has he learned anything from this Republican failure at governing that has cost millions of Americans their jobs? For some reason he does not want to answer this question since he is campaigning on the same ideas that we already know have failed. Yet, it must be asked until his answer explains why he is running on failed policies. But even then – remember that he is a gambler… who likes to speculate… to take risks… to calculate how many untruths we can stomach since his bid for the governorship is not about us: it is about how much money he and his cronies can make even if the economy fails --- even after all is said and done. Remember, he will do anything for a dollar bill even take 50, 000 dollars for 4 hours a month of work… The only thing that can change this is if we… you do your own homework so you can make an informed decision.

I come to that conclusion after observing every single one of you right wing lackeys doing the EXACT same thing. Which makes the best case for your own idea about multiple user names. You guys could ALL be one guy. You ALL do the same thing.
There's a difference between believing the "same thing" and writing about it the "same way". It's clear that none of you know that difference.
In which bastion of your hellish homeland did you ever expect Americans to give radical anti-American communists like you even a modicum of respect?
