    The Democrats did not provide medical care for people who can't afford it.

    Nope. All we have is a mess no one understands. Rather than reform which made healthcare affordable we now have a mess which made it more expensive and less efficient. As Obama has already spending $1 trillion dollars a year America does not have where will we find trillions more to fund this disaster?

    All that has been achieved is healthcare/healthcare technology 1/6th of our economy has been stopped cold. The cost and uncertainty has killed investment and job creation across the American economy.

    Finally while the Americans people wanted reform which lowered cost about 60% do not want Obamacare. So to top it off it is against the will of the people. We should have done reform a step at a time seeing what worked and which did not to increase competition and lower costs.

    But as we see with the evil of corn ethanol corruption. Progressives really do not care about the hardship their political corruption places on Americans or that it starves the least of human beings.

    But Progressives do not care. All other Americans that call out this insanity, failure and hubris of Obamascare are rude to point it out. We will just pretend to ignore.

    We should have been focusing on job creation. Full employment is the first policy objective of enlightened policy even if it is done in the name of collectivist social justice.

    Hopefully after another four years of this hardship Americans will come to their senses. 11%+ real unemployment was not Bush's fault four years later and Obama is doubling down rather than becoming pragmatic and respectful of us. Our economy can not sustain Obama irresponsible deficit spending let alone the trillions of his effective heathcare nationalization.

    • Board members...the Senate vote on Nov. 28 was 62 for and 37 against, to further the U.S. military's use of 'alternative fuels made in American' to reduce its dependance of foreign oils...the U.S military is expected to consume 120 million barrels of oil at a cost of $17 billion dollars, making it the world's largest consumer of oil....! $tagg...!

      • The defense authorization bill passed the House by a vote of 299 to 120. Colorado Republicans Scott Tipton, Mike Coffman, Doug Lamborn and Cory Gardner all voted for it as did Democrat Ed Perlmutter. Colorado Democrats Diana DeGette and Jared Polis voted against the defense bill.

        Rep. Coffman

        Rep. Coffman, a veteran who sits on the House Armed Services Committee, has criticized the Obama administration’s emphasis on weening the military off fossil fuels and investing in alternative energy.
        “By forcing our military to adopt high-cost renewable energies, while at the same time pushing for reductions in military personnel, the president will ultimately force further reductions to achieve his costly Green Energy initiative while also meeting his demands for a smaller military,” Coffman said earlier this year.

        The stage is now set for a showdown over the military’s energy spending between Sens. Udall, Shaheen and Begich and Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and James Inhofe, R-Okla., who have decried the military’s shift away from fossil fuels. The arguments just may come down to dollars and cents.

        “There is a clear need to find cost-competitive alternative fuels, given the fiscal challenges the Navy is facing in FY12 alone due to increases in the price of fuel,” Admiral Greenert wrote to the senators.
