    Hard to be confident when your health insurance is set to cancel and your new plan will cost your family Double next year with a higher deductible.

    One thing that will increase sales is that on Dec. 9 an old law forbidding the manufacture of undetectable plastic guns will expire. Should be able to generate lots of sales after that.

    There’s your problem. The toon is about Consumer Confidence. Says so right on the cube…

    What lies?

    The latest show show diminishing support for the gloom and doom of those on the “right” .

    It’s nearly impossible to find a conservative who isn’t deeply pessimistic about the future. I won’t get into the causes, but the doom & gloom isn’t very attractive.

    Actually, he is (nearly) correct in my case. My insurance went from about $450 to $750, and the deductible is significantly higher. But I’ll be covered for pregnancy! (64 yr old male)

    Since you live in Germany, your information is not first-hand.

    There has never been an undetectable firearm. The so called plastic guns still have steel barrels, the ammo is mostly metal.

    High consumer debt levels left over from the housing bubble, stagnant wages & under-employment have a lot more to do with retailers’ woes.

    The vast majority of Americans are still not directly affected by the ACA.

    Home sales (and prices) are up in most of the country, with, admittedly, some “slow spots”, especially where industry has moved out, to China, Viet Nam, or elsewhere. Auto sales are up and so are “major appliances” meaning “consumer confidence” is up. People are stampeding at retail stores today, to buy “stuff” they need like another hole in the head, many buying on credit, requiring “confidence”.


    The fraud in PPACA is overblowing the errors (yes, the web site sucks, but even gocomics has been screwing up lately, and often, like “can’t reach the server” etc.) and stating that folks being shifted from one plan, to one that MEETS THE LAW are, “losing” their insurance. A "cheap"plan that covers nothing, is yes, being replaced with one that costs much more, percentage wise, but in actual dollars, a rise from $5 to even $20 a month, is peanuts, when the new policy actually COVERS YOU for illness or injury, and like office visits, preventative screening, etc.! My policy, after over a decade of 13% annual increases, is going up again, but only 3% this time. That IS a “savings” relative to the mandates of the ACA.

    And the dirty little secret? We the USA pick up the tab for their military. We withdraw from their economy will take a very big hit. All those “free” stuff will go away.
