If you really want to get hot some politicians are talking about a mileage tax and some have even mentioned putting tolls on public roads like route 80. Much of that depended on everyone having easy pass but I guess since the economy tanked easy pass participation has not been as universal as some planned.
With the good jobs report, ford should have been up nicely. But instead the big winners were baloney stocks like linkedin. Well look at the general market. For five days the market was down based on taper fears, now today we get news that really supports tapering and the market skyrockets. A baloney market pumped with baloney stocks. Ford will do fine but it will never be pumped up to $232 a share. That's just the way of the markets.
If you can find out watch the documentary The world according to #$%$ cheney. This guy was a real piece of work.
One guy on cnbc asked if it was right to take extra money from shareholders to pay employees for a minimum wage increase. I guess his huge six figure salary for sitting on his rear all day and coming up with thoughts like this is not considered taking money from shareholders. Giving employees a fair minimum wage is not stupid, it is a good business decision. These are jobs that have to be done.. If low wage workers, which in this country is growing like crazy, do not see livable wages, they will strike, and the real important work that keeps american going every day will not get done and then we will really be in a mess.
I don't think so. but what we are really finding out is that for the past thirty years the republicans have sold the middle class a bag of goods. Wow, were they fooled. Just pray the stock market doesn't collapse again like in 2009. Then we might really find out what evaporated, and worse the proof why.
Republicans are really in a mess. Obamacare will always be known as obamacare and as a democrat program. What will the republicans be known for?
The real nightmare is that it is showing that Obama at least did something to address the healthcare crisis, but all the republicans did was complain. They added or contributed nothing. I don't care what the corporate paid media says, people are starting to see what really is going on.
When George w. bush said we were not in a recession and we were actually in the biggest economic downturn since the great depression. He was being positive, but positively wrong.
Bill O'Reilly has even bigger issues. Now even the pope says enough is enough. The religious right was wrong and their economic policies were harmful. This is a huge hit to republicans, and especially the religious right, probably bigger than the earlier scandals that plagued them.
If Obama ran today, he would beat any republican challenger in a landslide. Look at the last election results. Even the pope has now said enough is enough. Stop using religion for your economic disasters. The religious right was wrong. And by the way, what would republicans run on. They have done nothing but complain and cry for the past few years. They have done nothing.
Did stuart varney ever hear of the religious right. He was quiet then, especially when that one guy who represented the Christian right was tied into jack abramhoff and his scams.
Maybe you should listen to the president today when he talked about a college student who through the presidents plan was able to stay on her parents plan and was diagnosed with a life threatening disease but thanks to the presidents plan was able to be treated and saved her parents from bk.That's a real story and its not one of the corporate pr stories where someone has to pay a few dollars more to get a better quality plan. The site is working and so was the president. What have the republicans been doing for the past few years. Not working, but sure collecting a big paycheck.
This guy is an idiot. For years the republicans have been using religion to support their agenda, now we have a pope that says enough is enough, don't use us anymore to further your unfair economic policies. Congrats to this pope. He is truly a great man. You should read about Rush's response. That guy has lost it, but I guess considering his past issues, anything is to be expected from him.
The republicans know that Obama has been successful and despite all the negative press from conservative media like fox, if Obama ran today he would easily beat any republican challenger. That is why republicans are now tripping over each other to put forth some sort of amnesty program. Even cantor is working hard to put forth some program. Do a search and read all about it. And I think if they fight the minimum wage bills that will soon come up, the republicans will be finished. Many are also seeing that healthcare had to be addressed and that obamacare was necessary. The republicans are in trouble. The tea party has labeled them as conservatives with no solutions, only complaints and only support for tax cuts with no alternative plans to make up for the revenue loss. Their past programs have been short run benefits for the rich but long run disasters for the overall economy. Get ready because all the wall street games for thirty years will soon show deficits in everything from pensions to other programs. Just watch. The big money can pay for all the negative press they want, but there is no doubt that in 2014 and 2016, the votes are going democrat. Just look at the last round of elections.
It was a good segment on cnbc. You have all these people making $250,000 or more a year complaining that any raise in minimum wage is going to cause inflation to go out of control. Give me a break. Lets see, maybe if we cut their wages, production costs on the networks would go down, and advertising costs for companies would go down, and my fries may be a few pennies less. How much does mcdonalds spend on advertising?
I have a documentary for you, its called the world according to #$%$ cheney. Watch it. Its very informative and interesting.
I disagree. The media has been crushing the launch of obamacare. The msm, which is now almost totally run by rich conservatives and their financial backing, is nowhere near covering for Obama or the democrats. I think it is doing the exact opposite. Fox now controls the cable press, and they are brutal on Obama, the democrats and especially obamacare. Watch for yourself.
If it wasn't for obamacare, most republicans would have nothing to complain about. Business is great again, interest rates are low, there is plenty of cheap labor out there and most workers are too scared to ask for a raise, everything is selling again, from cars to homes, and overall things could not be better. Why would any republican want a change. Why would they want to go back to the days of bush/cheney. They were a disaster. The next election, I don't even think the republicans will be voting republican.
The interesting thing is that if it wasn't for Obamacare, the republicans would have nothing to complain about. The economy is doing great for them. They are all making money again, business is great, the markets are fantastic, there is tons of cheap labor out there and everyone is too scared to ask for a raise, interest rates are low, and overall things just could not be better. So why would republicans want an administration back like the bush/cheney one. It was a disaster. If things stay this good for them, not even the republicans will vote for a republican.
Pope Francis speaks the truth, It should be interesting. Listening to the pope it appears the religious right may have been wrong.
