    Hey Mikey O!
    You do know that ANYONE who thinks that the sequester is the fault of the R’s (since it was Obama’s idea and he signed it into law) HAS to be about the DUMBEST most IDIOTIC, half wit ever know to man! :twisted:

  • Raz

    Gee, USA8888, during the Bush years, I couldnt think of one thing the Democrats did except b*tch and moan and complain. Kind of like you.

  • Raz

    And USA8888 since you are so fond of Obamacare, you must be one of the people on the dole whose benefits actually got better while the rest of us who work-have to pay more to get less.

  • Mikey O

    @Ratboy Cuts haven’t taken place yet but they are releasing criminals. According to the NY times one of the release criminals charged with domsectic violence and child abuse. But these were low level criminals, I thought Obama was for women and children ???

    Obama has spent too much time with the clowns from Hollywood! He thinks he is directing a drama on TV! “Lets see how bad we can make it so we get our point across”
    What he is forgetting that at the end of this drama it will again be pointed out the this was HIS idea!

    You need to view Ben Bernanke’s testimony to the House Financial Services Committee before making any rash statements.

    You may wonder why people do not engage in debate with you. Here’s a clue – your rants are clearly emotional, negative, usually irrational and with little facts to make your case.

    Have a nice life.

  • Ratboy

    Like I said yesterday, go to the grocery store and get 100 bucks worth of groceries and when it is rung up reach down and pick up 2 bucks worth of what you bought and put it back. I bet you will survive just fine and not even remember you put what ever it was back!!! That is what we are up against here! What a freaking JOKE!!!

    Blame the R’s all you want but at least we will have saved a couple of bucks anyway!

  • usa8888

    Mike W–the American people side with Obama on all issues and favor him 2 to 1 over any right wingers. You and right wing lost the election because your wrong-minded philosophy is WRONG and anachronistic. But keep believing the absurdities you do–it helps our cause…..

  • usa8888

    It must be awful for the right wing to see Obama as president for the 2nd time!!! But when you have as wrong a philosophy as the right has, what are you going to do? The right never learns–they go back to the same old clowns who don’t appeal to the American people. they appeal to Slimebaugh and Beck, which gets you nothing.

  • usa8888

    Mike W, Rat, any of you–please state the GOP accomplishments during the last 4 years….I DARE you!!!!!!!!!

  • Ratboy

    Did you ever think tha zero x 4 might be King Obama? You know sitting there and sending out all these idotic chuncks of BS to get his point across hoping that at least one really really really stupid person buys into it??? :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Mike W

    Ratboy

    You’ve got to admire (maybe pity is a better description) his persistence regardless of how pathetic his rants may be.

    *According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, the U.S. is currently experiencing a shortage of at least 13,000 doctors. Unfortunately, that shortage is expected to grow to 130,000 doctors over the next 10 years. At this point, approximately 40 percent of all doctors in the United States are 55 years of age or older. –

    *The state of Florida is already dealing with a very serious shortage of doctors…the Florida Medical Association says there’s a growing shortage of doctors — especially specialists — available to provide you with medical care.About 15 million Floridians have health insurance today, and Obamacare, which requires most adults to have coverage by January, could add as many as 2.5 million more.

    *Of all patients, people covered by Medicaid may have the hardest time finding a doctor; only 59 percent of the state’s physicians are taking new Medicaid patients, according to a Kaiser Health News study.

    *Blue Shield of California has announced that it wants to raise health insurance premiums by up to 20 percent this year in an effort to keep up with rising health costs.

    *Aetna’s CEO says that health insurance premiums for many Americans will double when the major provisions of Obamacare go into effect in 2014.

    *Close to 10 percent of all U.S. employers plan to drop health coverage completely when the major provisions of Obamacare go into effect in 2014.

    *It turns out that the financial assistance that Barack Obama promised would be provided for those with “pre-existing conditions” under Obamacare is already being shut down because of a lack of funding…

    *Today, there are more than 56 million Americans on Medicaid, and it is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls.

    Featherweight 4 8s is probably on his parents health care plan & “IF” he graduated from college is in the 45% of graduates who live at home.

    @Ratboy

    Take over and make sure everyone is fed tonight, I have to get my lesson ready. :-)

    Have a GREAT evening everyone

    Peace

    H.B. might have beat me to this.

    Cable Network Ranker: February 2013

    FNC was the top cable news channel for the month, placing fifth in primetime and sixth in total day. MSNBC was 24th in primetime and 27th in total day, while CNN was 29th in both primetime and total day.

    HLN was 37th in primetime and 40th in total day, while Current TV was dead last among all ad-supported channels in both categories, placing below Nielsen’s minimum accuracy threshold.

  • Ratboy

    Hey there Miss d.d.!

    How are your flowers doing? I figure if you tell me good things it will make me looking at all thei @#$%$#!@^&%$#@ snow a little easier! :)

  • usa8888

    Obamacare is already resulting in lower heathcare…No longer will the costs go up by 100% every 10 years, which the GOP is quite content with. DD’s comments, like those of Faux News, are totally erroneous…….

    All this proves is that the health care system is boned beyond belief, and requires substantial, systemic fixes at almost every step of the process. In theory, it makes sense that a medical school might be able to charge a lot in the market to teach someone such a valuable trade; in practice such a system has dire macroeconomic consequences, and combined with onerous levels of student loan debt, it’s only going to complicate things.

    Also, the huge number of baby boomers.

    Also, our high obesity rate, and a job market that increasingly requires prolonged periods of sitting.

    Also, free-riders who don’t pay into the system, but still get roundabout catastrophic coverage from EMTALA.

    Also, this this this this this:
    http://healthland.time.com/2013/02/20/bitter-pill-why-medical-bills-are-killing-us/

    Completely insane medical bill inflation, mark-ups, and inconsistent pricing that seems based on Who The Hell Knows What

    My dear, Rats,

    We have crocus & daffodils blooming in my neighborhood. My daf.’s are late blooming so they are behind. The robins are back ; the ducks are back at the feeder ; my hubbie has caught a few fish off the bank this week , & we’re ready for Spring . It’s not ready for us yet. It’s cold in the thirties with a wickedly cold wind, but, we don’t have what you do. I was talking to a man from Michigan this morning who had just talked to his daughter there. Needless to say, he’s not planning a visit yet.

    Healthcare will be driven down considerably by “wellness management,” which Obama is supporting. This will save hundreds of billions and result in a healthier population. The government is getting ivnolved in programs which help kids eat right (fueled by Michelle Obama and others). There will lots of changes in healthcare by progressive thinking individuals, none of whom,by definition, are right wingers….
