How much is the Obama family going to save under Obamacare? I have been waiting to hear how much their premiums are going down?
tifosi said....Kudos to the Special Ops for executing it and the Commander in Chief for making the call. Proud American here.
Yes, Valerie Jarrett made the right call.
anniebelle said.....Don't give me anymore of your BS about fiscal conservatives, you're really showing your ignorance OF HISTORY. And let's not forget Bush's cash cow to Big Pharma, Medicare Part D, another unfunded gift to be paid for by generations for years and years.
President Obama campaigned on negotiating with Big Pharma on C-SPAN. He was going to negotiate for lower drug costs on behalf of the American people. Could you please post a link for the video of that negotiation?
It's not terrorism. Just a little work place violence.
I love how the lunatic fringe goes after the tea party. They can't handle anyone putting a little light on the darkness. Using Alinsky tactics to freeze the target and polarize it.
Mr. Nomadic Life obviously knows no one getting their job status changed to part-time or losing their job because of this massive tax increase on the middle class. We should cut the work week for Congress to 27 hours and take away all their benefits.
Bob Woodward: "[Obama] said he will not negotiate on the debt ceiling. A reasonable position. 'I will not be blackmailed,' he said. But he should be talking. They should be meeting, discussing this, because as I think Steve Ratner showed earlier, the American economy is at stake and the president, if there is a downturn or a collapse or whatever could happen here, that’s bad, it’s going to be on his head. The history books are going to say, we had an economic calamity in the Presidency of Barack Obama. Speaker Boehner, indeed, is playing a role on this. Go back to the Great Depression in the 1930s. I’ll bet no one can name who was the Speaker of the House at the time. Henry Thomas Rainey. He’s not in the history book; it’s on the president’s head. He’s got to lead. He’s got to talk. And the absence of discussion here, I think, is baffling element."
Who would be blamed for a shutdown?
Generally speaking, no one comes out looking good if the government shuts down. A Pew Research poll conducted Sept. 19-22 shows 39 percent of Americans would blame Republicans if a shutdown were to occur, compared with 36 percent who would fault the Obama administration and 17 percent who would hold both sides responsible. According to a Pew poll from a comparable period during the 2011 budget battle, the public spread the blame around nearly identically.
Whenever the Democrats have no valid response to an argument. They start name calling.
He was definitely responsible for the poor response, in Louisiana, after the Gulf oil spill.
