    I am waiting for Nancy P to tell us that Obamacare and the dept are job makers. Makes about as much sense as her telling us unemployment benefits and such are good for jobs.

    If indeed the debt is a looming asteroid, you can draw bush’s doubling of it as the rocket thruster pushing it ever faster towards earth. If the PPACA is is indeed an asteroid hurtling towards us ensuring our annihilation you can again add the republicans to the mess in that all they could do regarding it was “repeal and replace” only to never offer any ideas of what to replace it with, aside from more of the same that had the US at the top for healthcare spending and near the bottom in real world outcomes that is. No ideas for progress, only more repression because after all the only people they care about are doing just fine either way.

    So yes the greatest threat to our country is the CURRENT crop of republicans. Not conservativism but the extremist conservativism that currently reigns.

    Let see the Democrats want to hold up on the employer mandate but not the individual mandate and we are the party of big business.

    Don’t worry the media will deflect those meteors with strongly worded op ed pieces pillorying the Republicans.

    This is all about stopping a law that increases taxes on rich people and reduces subsidies to private insurers in Medicare in order to help low-income Americans buy health insurance. That’s it. That’s why the Republican Party might shut down the government and default on the debt.

    If that is true why is the Employer Mandate being delayed and not the Individual Mandate. The insurance companies will make money through the exchanges. They will invest and own stocks if the states allow it or purchase Munciple & State bonds if they don’t.

    Yep, just like reagan who? Your (collective not personal) memories are conveniently short when history is not on your side.

    The delays have been explained many, many times. Apparently rational thought and reality don’t filter through your approved propaganda sources. Due to all of the hype about the republicans repealing the PPACA, not to mention the complexity of the issue, computer programs are not up to the task, so the mandate was postponed to allow those affected to gear up. The individual mandate is a different issue addressed by the health care marketplace or “exchanges” that are set up by the state/federal governments.

    Obama’s doubling of the debt? What are you talking about? Oh, yeah right, you are using a biased source for your information. How about you actually use some real, factual data.
    Case in point, from treasurydirect.org, daily debt to the penny,
    Baby bush inauguration – federal debt was $5.728 trillion
    President Obama inauguration – federal debt was $10.627 trillion, not counting TARP or other legacy costs. In fact at the beginning of President Obama’s first fiscal year, national debt stood at $11.910 trillion.
    Federal debt as of September 27, 2013, the last day treasurydirect.gov has data was $16..738 trillion, actually down consistently from Aug 1, 2013, and up only 306 billion since Dec 31, 2012, so by the trend one could expect the national debt to be even lower today than it was on 9/27/13. But the facts don’t play well for you, much less your suggested propaganda site.
    .
    And just so you can’t say my information isn’t there or you can’t find it, here’s a direct link, http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/debt/current
    Simply enter your date range and it will show you the government’s accounting of the federal debt. And if the pocketbook holder doesn’t know how much money it owes, who will?
