Can someone please explain to me - How can Obama require the average American citizen to pay $200 to $300 per month for healthcare? This is not economically possible for the average US citizen. Should not the focus of the Obama administration be first to provide jobs to its citizens - rather than the further outsourcing of goods and labor to China, India, etc. And why is this called the Affordable Care Act? I see absolutely nothing Affordable about it. I also do not see any difference in insurance rates before or after the introduction of the Affordable Care Act. The rates are exactly the same. The Healthcare Exchanges reflect the same rates as always. How will American citizens be able to comply with this mandate?
Sure Congress is acting selfishly, and the individual members in particular.
To preserve their jobs, they're voting for things they know amount to nothing and actually interfere with the running of our government.
We will speak the language these Congressmen understand best: We'll vote 'em out, en masse.
If keeping their jobs has become paramount to actually doing it, they shouldn't have it in the first place.
We elected these folks to run our country -- first and foremost. Over and over they've refused to do so.
We'll elect those who will.
The longer this lasts, the fewer Republicans will be elected in 2014.
Keep up the good work Boehner.
This is obviously a GOVERNMENT bicycle program. 140 bikes; annual operating budget of $326K, give or take. That's upwards of $2300 per bike, per year. (After the startup costs.)
I could buy a sweeeeet [private] bike and operate it for probably 5 years, for $2300.
But, the government is flush with surplus cash, so why not? (/heavy sarcasm)
Thank you Mr President. For taking these hits in politics, and lord knows the hit's you must take personally on a daily basis, and making earnest effort to stand up for the common man/woman while we are in an era of so many who are not.
You are looking thin, please take time from your schedule to eat a bit better, I can only imagine if I were in your position, what my stomach would be feeling like.
People forget you are a real person too, this citizen doesn't. I know I am speaking for millions when I say, even though you have no more elections to win, we still have your back. Hang tight, stay strong, and we shall overcome.
There is an elegant mathematical solution to this problem. It cuts across party lines, and will lead to a truly functional House of Representatives as envisioned by the founding fathers. All Congressional districts would be created by a mathematical formula. The default district would be a rectangular shape, and sized based on the latest Census data. Every two years, the rectangles would be moved by 25%, and the formulas would recalculate their location, size and borders based solely on population numbers. (The math is trivial for computers, as is the math for roughing the rectangular edges to meet geographic and population constraints.) This would immediately remove most Congressional incumbents, and lead to a situation where candidates would be forced to state their true beliefs, because they could never know the exact makeup of their next constituency. It could be launched under the name "The Rectangle Party." Of course this mathematical solution is practically impossible, because our process for setting District boundaries lies in the hands of the States. The American people have lost control of their ability to change the Government. A tiny minority has shut it down, and intends to do worse. They profess otherwise, but both sides know better. I imagine it felt much the same in small-town 1930s, when the "Folk Culture" patriotic movement gained control of governments at the grassroots level, much as the States have seized control of District boundaries. That Folk-Culture movement had fantastic early successes, and transformed the national government in only 3 short years. Ultimately, however, it led to the complete destruction of the government, the destruction of the nation, and the loss of millions of innocent lives. History is repeating itself, as it always does. Time to think about selling everything and escaping to a country where tyranny is not on the horizon. For a few decades, this really was a great country. But the people no longer control its future.
If Democrats controlled the house...not the Senate, not the White House, and they attached gun control as a condition of raising the debt limit, or issuing government funding bills -- how would Republicans react to that?
If house-controlled Democrats, as a minority party in government, chose to shut down our government because they had attached Pro-Choice addendums to vital legislative services -- how would Republicans react to that?
Republicans are setting precedence here – the ideological minority rule.
Tell me … in the future, if house-controlled Democrats - as a minority party in government - chose to act like Republicans today -- how would Republicans react to that?
It is not anymore possible to conceive the World events as if they were not all correlated. A once blurry puzzle becomes now a Picture clear and evident: “Many simultaneous rebellions stirred up in Arab Countries will benefit in the end only the State of Israel with the expansion of its territory while in Europe and in the US, the financial resources "like magic" will disappear through bailouts, tax cuts and elaborated emergency maneuvers which will be ruled only to appear beneficial for those Countries but instead appositely designed for their collapse (except for England that will push Europe over the precipice). Massive poverty will bring chaos and anarchy while the lack of effective governments will set the stage for one World Tyranny (and the return of George Bush). It will be just from chaos that one voice will rise with the promise to fix all and everyone. That will be the forked tongue of agents of the New World Order (like Berlusconi in Italy and Mc Cain in the US). The Deception supported by the media, all in the hands of a very few individuals, is the Zionist main weapon and there is a risk that people will realize what is happening only when it will be too late and there will be no alternatives.”
There is one single Solution for this planned chain of events.
Y'all realize this is all just a big scam, like 9/11. They create the chaos so as to invoke their authority to manage it, gaining more power for themselves, while removing more liberties and freedoms from the people along the way.
This shyte isn't funny people, this is outright sedition and treason. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/…
I dedicate this song to the Tea Party boy's down there in Congress who somewhere along the line forgot they were only out to destroy big government, and not everyone else in between.
"watch out, you might get what you wanted......'
I wonder if RepubliCONs remember that Obamacare is the law named after the guy who Americans re-elected POTUS last year?
If the Affordable Care Act was called Romneycare, after its author, Republicans would love it.

Homelessness has nothing to do with the Beggar Blight. Most of those people have homes and are just looking for a free buck (or $50/hour tax free as reported by local papers). Separate the issues then deal with them appropriately.

On a story about Iran at iolDOTcoDOTza , someone using the name “Justice Schwart” posted the following comment:
“India's nuclear capability is more of a threat to the world than what Iran is.”
To this someone using the name “Lan Davis” replied:
“Agreed, India should suffer the sanctions due to the damage it is doing to our planet with its ever growing population which in turn is creating food and water shortages. Increased pollution, increased deforestation. Migrant Indians are everywhere and are taking over communities all over the world.
We need this to stop!!! Indians should stay in India.
Then you have the cultural Caste system which is worse than Apartheid since it entrenched in Indian culture (ie, you cannot repeal a culture).”
To this I replied:
“Not to mention trafficking Indian children to Israel to be used as food:
With Iran, Iraq and Syria deprived of any nuclear capabilities, Israel can start using their children as food.
Indians by and large do stay in India -- only a tiny fraction has migrated out of India. Until the 19th century, travel by Indians outside India was considered polluting and was forbidden; both the young Mahatama Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru were required to do a long penance and undergo purification before being allowed back into society on their return from England. It is the Europeans who have taken over and devastated the world -- entire continents such as North and South America, Australia and Africa that filth like you inhabit. How will India get rid of filth like you without nuclear weapons?”
For India’s nuclear forces, getting rid of filth like Manmohan Singh and RAW -- collaborators with the European enemy -- is just as important as getting rid of European filth.
Honestly, if I remember correctly, the only people worth even mentioning in History are the people who stood for equal rights for all. Do you really think Labrador's name will be remembered? And why?
Don't believe it. It's a California hippie plot. Buy pick-up trucks and drive them where you want to go.
Thanks for having the courage to come forward Mr. Elliott. I hope your story will allow others to come forward with their own experiences.
and not all of us who fly signs use the money for drugs and alchahol i have no problem with fill the boot the biggest problem i have is they should volunteer for it and not get paid for their time because the money they are being paid by the city could go to other more important things
