The man is a psychotic. Issa releases partial transcripts of reports, leaving out the remedies that have been put in place. Here goes:
“key details” from Teresa Fryer’s transcript “were omitted” before it was leaked to ABC. It’s true that security testing uncovered a recent vulnerability, but Issa’s leak left out relevant facts: there have been no security breaches, the vulnerability was identified and fixed, and Fryer (security expert) sees the security measures in place as “best practices above and beyond what is usually recommended.”
None of that was made public by Issa.
Something. As deadline after deadline passes, enrollments keep growing. Now, into the millions. The GOP knows they can't even talk repeal.
It's over. Obama has won.
Funny how you were all concerned of the poor people losing their #$%$' insurance. Now you're upset that they're getting a break. Wouldn't logical consistency on your part require you to be happy their getting some help?
Well, no. You don't care about the uninsured or uninsured, you just want to hate Obama. Why is that? Is it his race? You can say it. I'll 'tolerate' bigotry.
A few simple fixes: repeal NAFTA, GAAT, drop out of WTO. Establish tariffs to build cars, clothes, and electronics in the USA. Make capital gains equal to ordinary income rates. Tax corporations for all GAAP income if it is greater than IRS taxable income. Tax all foreign profits when earned, not when cash shipped back to the USA. Close all offshore loopholes. Tell offshore banks 'we won't prosecute you if you steal money'. 100% of cash would return to the USA overnight.
Cut the defense budget by 10% a year for 10 years.
My public awaits. I don't waste time on "fake" reality shows. They are all made up scenarios, nothing spontaneous or genuine.
I watched about 3 minutes of some survivor style show: "...what am I going to do?...I lost my matches..." Well, dude, there are about 16 people, camera, sound, lighting, craft service, communication, producers, watching you, so ask one of them for a match. Worthless garbage.
The phoniness continues with the faux outrage: "Freedom of speech, intolerance..." The issue isn't tolerance. No one is saying this moron can't hold bigoted, homophobic views. It's A&E's prerogative if they want to try to keep making money with this guy. Looks like they don't. That's the American way.
No, morons can think and say just about anything that they want. What you don't get is shielding from the effects of idiocy.
No one is stopping this bigot from saying any thing he damn well pleases. What is stopping is people paying him for it.
No, it's called public opinion. A&E is in business to make money. Period. They feel they'll make more without bigots. Problem?
If the GOP is crazy enough to threaten default, and then carry it out. Obama can let it happen. As the carnage piles up, there will be one and only one party to blame: the GOP.
As before, Obama will give them nothing. Zero. The GOP will have to pass a clean bill, and all the destruction: jobs, GDP, Dow, growth, will all be on account of the Republicans.
That might cause enough voters to put them out of the House and Senate in 2014.
They want Obama to fail so badly, they are blind to reality. A successful black President requires them to rethink their lifelong bigotry.That is something they really don't want to do. That's why they focus for days on trivialities like Obama shaking someone's hand, or bowing in a ceremony.
We'll see the same brilliant success in Obamacare, in roughly the same time period it took GM.
From the center for automotive research....
Our results show the U.S. government saved or avoided the loss of $105.3 billion in transfer payments and the loss of personal and social insurance tax collections--or 768 percent of the net investment. Additionally, 2.6 million jobs were saved in the U.S. economy in 2009 alone and $284.4 billion in personal income saved over 2009-2010.
Looks like the 'Fort Lee Lane Closure' fiasco exposes the big man as a petty, meddling, vindictive bully. My mixed emotions are that Christie would have been highly useful. He is way, way smarter than any three of the last crop of candidates and would have humiliated Huckabee et al in the debates.
Of course in the debates, Hillary Clinton would have decapitated him in short order.
Now we'll have the usual gang of GOP idiots, and maybe Jeb Bush. Jeb is past his prime, politically, and will be see as a retro neocon, and wholly worthless by the majority of the nation's voters.
As I've said before, mankind's ability to collect money can overcome any obstacle. Said another way, if you think Obamacare will fail because a payee can't collect, you are indeed naive.
Gee, why don't we see an endless parade of 'I lost my insurance' tales of woe? I know, because in the vast number of cases, the people like the new policies better than the old.
0.38% to be exact. Soon, the GOP will be moaning that "it isn't HTML5!, you can't apply from your PS4, repeal it!"
Yes, replace it with: pre-existing condition gets you no insurance, arbitrary cancellations if you become ill, double digit rate increases, high deductibles, yearly and lifetime caps, children uninsured at 23. Like the good old days: when United Health Care CEO made over a billion dollars in compensation for one year.
The GOP is banking everything on Obamacare failing, and each day it improves.
From the Rupert Murdoch Wall Street Journal:
The Wall Street Journal reports that insurance companies are set to unleash hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising to entice potential customers on to the exchanges created by Obamacare. As the Journal puts it:
Insurers … are capitalizing on an unprecedented opportunity in a shifting health-care market. Some seven million Americans are expected to buy health coverage on the new consumer exchanges, where people can compare insurance plans side by side.
Then of course, the few, lone GOP fanatics on this board know better than billion dollar health care companies.
I don't think you understand. The retread metaphor is to depict a political figure who is worn out and failed: huckabee, santorum, rick perry, paul ryan, newt gingerich.
Hillary Clinton keeps moving from success to success, gain popularity and worldwide respect as she goes.
Also, this will eliminate Paul Ryan from further public office. That leaves Chris Christie. He's the only non-retread in the lot.
Always the best remedy: take the unit back and get 100% of your money returned. Don't buy from any store that doesn't have their return terms spelled out in writing. If in doubt, go somewhere else.
I shop at a local store. They accept anything for return as long as you haven't messed it up. That's worth a couple of dimes extra in price to me.
He shot people because he is nuts. You all just don't get that, do you. Insanity, or psychosis is not a 'learning' issue. It's brain chemistry.
This is the reason all people who want to own guns should have undergo a complete mental workup at purchase time, at random throughout the year, at any life change event. Job loss, divorce, personal loss. Also a minimum of $10,000,000 gun liability insurance. It's just simple precautions. All mental evaluations at the expense of gun licensing. It would guess about $2000 per gun owner per year.
