    On 1 October 2013, Obama brought out two young ladies with serious medical conditions, said they had been unable to receive any health care before, but, he said, now the ACA would give them full access to the world’s best healthcare for a total out-of-pocket cost of less than $100 a month..


    This was challenged, of course, but the official, average cost for those newly covered by the ACA is $82 a month. Of course, that’s AFTER the subsidy that one court just upheld and another ruled illegal. Without that subsidy, it gets much more expensive.


    So, of course, every decent American blames Obama for this fiasco. And our Representatives in the House have had the good sense to vote against the ACA every time it’s come up (except for one).

    Let’s stick to waging war, we’ve done so well there over the past several decades.

    Hey we only lost a few billion on the deal to save the car Union. With the VA we lost lives.

    That’s one interpretation. The more correct one is that they are recalling vehicles that should have been recalled a dozen years ago.

    Aw… The government “masterminds” won’t be able to help? What a shame…

    “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ’I’m from the government, and I’m here to help’.” -Ronald Reagan, 1986

    And St Ronny made sure, as best he could, that it came true.
    Even Ronny, after making tax cuts, realized he had to raise taxes to cover his assets.
    Government spending ballooned under his administration, and his budget deficits did as well.
    Higher taxes cause businesses to invest in the companies future.

    Ronald Reagan wouldn’t be able to get a foot in the door of the GOP these days if he ran on his record. Raised the debt ceiling 17 times? Raised taxes 11 times? Eliminated loads of tax shelters and loopholes? Granted amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants?

    The Tea Party would run him out of town on a rail.

    Except for the fact Reagan cut the taxes 1st. Under Carter they were represily high, very very high. Reagan cut them and that brought about growth. When you cut taxes it grows the economy, that is a fact. Then the adjustment was made in relationship with growth.
    Obama’s solution, Tax the rich, they did not build it, tax the rich! Obama has grown those that wish to be wards of the State! He needs money from the producers in order to pay off his voting block!

    In the real world it is private business that creates wealth and creates revenue for the government, One of the by products is that it also creates “rich” people. Obama does not understand the connection of people doing well, a corporation doing well, means a Nation will do well. All he sees is evil rich and good Unions, and magic green jobs.

    Here’s a sample of the real world for you: Obama sets a new record: borrowed more money than George Washington through W. Bush combined!

    Golly, I didn’t know the Executive Branch has control of the checkbook, too. Perhaps you could share with us where you got that amusing factoid?

    And now that the deficit has drastically declined, the wing-nut media isn’t talking about it anymore:

    The first 4 years of Obama’s Presidency saw deficits of $1+Trillion. That he’s brought them down to the level of Bush’s historic last year deficit isn’t something to crow about.

    Here’s a new insight for sw10mm — The president isn’t responsible for the budget. Also, you need to verify what looks to me like a ridiculous figure. If you can’t attack him without lying, he must be doing a pretty good job!
