Off topic, I find it unbelievable that Joy Behar and Whoopie Goldberg ran off the set of the view when O'reilly said that Muslims attacked us on 9/11.
The same Joy Behar who sat there laughing it up when a drunk Danny Devito called the president of the United States numbnuts and made obscene gestures.
Yet she is offended that O'reilly says that muslims attacked us.
That Disney/ABC has people like Behar on their show, shows what disney stands for. Attacking the president of the United States, while making it offlimits to say that muslims attacked us.
So it's fine for your precious faux news to be as bigoted, biased and racist as they and you want, but you can't stand it when the left comes after your boy. Hypocrite.

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.
Maybe you are interested in reading this:

It's obvious you communists and your regime in power don't believe in majority rule or in the will of the people, but:

"Since Democrats in Congress passed the law in late March, support for repeal has ranged from a low of 53% to a high of 63%."

"President Barack Obama made a promise to promote transparency by having negotiations broadcast on C-SPAN. Even though C-SPAN encouraged President Obama and Democratic leaders in Congress to let people see the process, they failed to follow through. Even if they had made good on the promise, certain aspects of ObamaCare are going to be controverisal, such as the individual and employer mandates and breaking the pledge not to tax the middle class."

Hey nimrod, go look at your posts. See a pattern. Your rambling boring, lying posts prove what a low life you are. I'm betting even your pals here don't read them anymore. And then you lash out in fear and desperation at everybody who doesn't agree with your warped view of the world. Anyone who sees everything in black and white is destined to die in the gray between because they didn't even know it existed.
I guess I hit the age and behavior thing right on the mark, though.
"lying"?! "low life"?! "warped"?

Could it be that you're finally coming to terms with the very essence of Bark?

Its way overplayed by Bark, of course, but I like how Bark doggedly (get it, "doggedly"???- ROFLMAO!!!) keeps picking at that bone. Its the only bone Bark has.
LOL.

That's merely Darth Bark Sidious "releasing his anger".

Which isn't surprising, given that the only "force that's with him" is deployed in the oval office men's room. Maybe there's a teleprompter in there displaying "grunt" as an homage to Darth Bark, Unplugged.

Citing health care law, Boeing pares employee plan - October 18, 2010
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101018/ap_on_bi_...

WASHINGTON – Aerospace giant Boeing is joining the list of companies that say the new health care law could have a potential downside for their workers.

In a letter mailed to employees late last week, the company cited the overhaul as part of the reason it is asking some 90,000 nonunion workers to pay significantly more for their health plan next year. A copy of the letter was obtained Monday by The Associated Press.

Boeing said annual deductibles and copayments will increase for all its plans next year.

YOU LIE! Obama promised his Mandatory Government Health Care System would reduce costs for everyone, especially those making less than $250k/year.

Hey numbnuts, I see you are getting your panties all bunched up.
Dude Bush wanted to allow the people to choose where they put their money for retirement. But you and your fck'd up demolosers stopped it with a filibuster.
But as usual you over look such details.
No, bush's idea was to have it invested in stock markets and bonds, but in individual accounts. Taking Oct '07 to Mar '09 into account, it would be better just to totally eliminate the system to include stopping any checks going out.

If you did not plan to live without SS and Medicare it just ain't my problem.

Gallup Finds U.S. Unemployment at 10.0% in Mid-October - October 18, 2010
http://www.gallup.com/poll/143714/Gallup-Find...

Gallup's unemployment measure showed a sharp increase to double digits at the end of September, before seasonal adjustment. The mid-October measurement suggests the resulting double-digit unemployment rate has been maintained during the first half of the current month. In turn, this suggests that the government will report an increase in the U.S. unemployment rate for October.

In this regard, Gallup modeling suggests the government's unemployment rate report for October will be in the 9.7% to 9.9% range when it is released Nov. 5. The government's last report showed the U.S. unemployment rate at 9.6% in September on a seasonally adjusted basis, as Gallup anticipated.

In addition to seasonal adjustments, the official unemployment rate is likely to be held down by a continued exodus of people from the workforce. It is easy for potential workers to become discouraged when the unemployment rate is expected to remain above 9% through the end of 2011.

Very good posting, but a Little off on your math- it's $1.3 million per job, but again,it's been more than a year, where's these $1.3 million dollar jobs he managed to come up with? Oh, that's right, he has to have federal employees set aside the budget, and anything over $2500.00 has to go to competitive bid, so more federal employees can handle the solicitations, others to write the contracts, others to research and write the technical aspects of the Statement of Work, others to oversee the quality control of the project, and the list goes on, quite a cushie guarantee of more job security for federal employees.
What can you expect from someone whose only job was a community organizer overpaid by the taxpayers, and used the taxpayers money to pay for his projects. Talk about clueless about what how the world really spins.

Well, it is official. Bark has spent us into debt an extra $3 trillion since the day he took office.

With three trillion dollars, you could buy 150 aircraft carriers such as the USS Ronald Reagan and outfit each of them with 45 of the newest fighter jet, the F-22 Raptor.

If you were to stack $1000 bills in a tight stack,$3 trillion would be 203.7 miles tall. That is stacked, not laid end to end and those are 1000 dollar bills! Grover Clevelands! Of course, it would be hard to make that stack since as of last year, there were only 165,372 of them left which only adds up to a paltry $165,372,000.

Thanks for the debt, Bark, and to think that you still have another 2 and 1/4 years to go...
