Earlier this year when President Obama was selling his first budget blueprint, he promised to end years of "borrow and spend" budgeting. Yesterday, reality struck.
Mr. Obama's White House and the Congressional Budget Office told us that current U.S. fiscal policy is "borrow and spend" on a hyperlink. The good news is the deficit for 2009 will be "only" $1.58 trillion, about $250 billion lower than expected thanks to less need for TARP funds. But the Obama fiscal plan envisions $9 trillion in new borrowing over the next decade, which is $2 trillion more debt than the White House predicted earlier this year. The 2010 deficit also rises by about as much as the 2009 deficit falls from January, so even the TARP windfall gets spent.
"When the world's elite needs major surgery they go to the Houston Medical Center, Mayo Clinic, and Cleveland Clinic....They don't go to Quebec."
I think laman would rather go to a vet in Montreal than admit that the US is tops in practically everything.
Pure propaganda from the Right wing loons...Oh wait...He was a Canadian.
Well, he must have been a Bush supporter....America has the best health care in the world...they have the best doctors in the world....they discover more drugs and improve medical technology more than other country in the world.
When the world's elite needs major surgery they go to the Houston Medical Center, Mayo Clinic, and Cleveland Clinic....They don't go to Quebec.
"I have a friend in Canada that would have died from a heart condition if he was not insured privately."
O'Reilly interviewed a past pres. of the Canadian Medical Assoc last week. He said that out of 33 million Canadian residents 1 million are waiting for surgery and 1 million are waiting to see a specialist.
Here's the video:
I have a friend in Canada that would have died from a heart condition if he was not insured privately. I think the system is okay as long as you can wait a little while before you need attention.
"Tell us again about traveling to and living in 30+ countries."
Pot gives you the capability to live anywhere you can imagine...rasta-laman smoke'em peace-pipe, go to dream-land...
"I lived in Canada"
"their system is not perfect it is so much better than ours"
Tell us again about traveling to and living in 30+ countries.
Tell us again how all these places are better than the US and that all these countries hate us as much as you do.
Then explain why you choose to live in Cinci.
Why is that you ask? Because it is not true. I lived in Canada and while their system is not perfect it is so much better than ours and the truth is their life expectancy and medical care is better than ours. How many Canadians do you know? Have you ever lived there? Or are you just swallowing the right wing Kool Ade? Kind of like the stupid repub politician who said it is a good thing Steven Hawking didn't live in Britain or he would have been left to die. Of course Hawking is British and he himself said he got exemplary health care treatment at no cost. Repubs just lie and then lie some more!
You are all out of your proverbial tree.....
Ask how many Canadians are thrilled with their socialized health care...ask them about coming here to get life saving operations that their government deemed as "elective", ask them about their lotteries just to obtain a family physician. Ask leaders from around the world why they don't stay in their own countries to get their health problems taken care of but, they come to America where innovation and availability are key to their well being and physical existence. Why is that?
