    Why should they? And why didn’t Obama understand it from the beginning?

    Maybe if more of us had full time jobs so that we could afford the premiums we would. <50% of people age 18-29 are working full time right now. Fewer than one might think aren’t employed full time because we are in school or are homemakers. More and more are because companies are shifting more work to part time or just aren’t hiring at all. Maybe now we will think a little more about who we are voting for instead of thinking how “cool” they are and caring about what celebs think of them. Sadly I have little hope that this country won’t continue to vote for the candidates who promise to give us the most “free” stuff.

    You want full employment? Close the borders to all foreign products and services! Make your OWN smartphones, don’t buy them in China. Mine your OWN copper, don’t get it from Brazil. Cook your OWN steel, don’t buy it from Korea. This whole “Globalisation” thing is bad, bad, bad and I curse Clinton, Bush AND Obama for promoting it. Isolationism is the way to go!

    You are not far off. When my wife and i were overseas in Spain, foreign goods were HORRENDOUSLY expensive, taxed to the gills and local products became competitive. Perhaps a similar approach, tax imports to encourage domestic manufacturing.
    As far as this cartoon, perhaps a better approach to sell the ACA would have been to shore up the middle class, but that would have faired ill for Obama’s legacy (though as the first black president, a prospering economy would have put him on the “good” column of presidents) not giving enough time to implement which may cost the Democratic party.
    I give the president Kudos for finally being honest when he told American that they would need to give up their cable TV and cell phone in order to pay for the ACA. He was finally honest about it.

    It’s a fair question. And the answer is because Obama thinks everybody is (or should be) the same kind of mindless far-left sheep that he is.

    We tried that during the Great Depression. It was called the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930. Most economists agree that the ensuing tariff wars were highly counterproductive and contributed to the depth and length of the global Depression.

    Not sure I GET this. Who is the girl? Just a symbol of a young person? Where’s the comedy?

    Alas for the rightwing, if they’re too selfish to sign up, they’re also too selfish to vote.
