CBO: Obamacare to Cost $1.930 Trillion, Leave 30 Million Uninsured
4:31 PM, Jul 27, 2012 • By JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
The latest CBO scoring of Obamacare, in the wake of the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision upholding the overhaul’s individual mandate as an allowable (although seemingly unprecedented) tax on inactivity, shows that President Obama’s centerpiece legislation would cost about $2 trillion over its real first decade (2014 through 2023). The CBO also says that — despite its colossal cost and its unprecedented expansion of power and control over Americans’ lives — Obamacare would, as of a decade from now, leave 30 million people uninsured.
I agree. Spreading intelligence doesn't seem to win democrats over to the republican side either.
What republicans need to do is come up with some really ignorant sheet typical democrat voters can relate to. Like free Ipads and lots of bling. Maybe some of those hubcaps that keep spinning when the car is stopped.
Oh we don't actually have to give them this #$%$. We can even charge them for it and just say well we tried but we couldn't get the free sheet past through the senate. Works every time for democrats.
I am pretty sure I can make a good case that the slaves my ancestors bought from the Africans were defective. They didn't work, they spent much of the day laying around listening to some fat aunt jemima looking woman talk about feelings, dancing and singing gibberish, and to top it off my ancestors had to house, feed and cloth them... much as we do today.
"Several nations such as the Ashanti of present-day Ghana and the Yoruba of present-day Nigeria were involved in slave-trading. Groups such as the Imbangala of Angola and the Nyamwezi of Tanzania would serve as intermediaries or roving bands, waging war on African states to capture people for export as slaves. Historians John Thornton and Linda Heywood of Boston University estimate that 90 percent of those shipped to the New World were enslaved by Africans and then sold to European traders. Henry Louis Gates, the Harvard Chair of African and African American Studies, has stated that "without complex business partnerships between African elites and European traders and commercial agents, the slave trade to the New World would have been impossible, at least on the scale it occurred.""
