    You do realize, there would be no chemo if it weren't for pharmaceutical companies who came out with these drugs in the first place?

    Well there would be, but don't be surprised if it has something to do with hydrogen cyanide.

    I am not promoting chemo, actually the opposite. Chemo Therapy is more dangerous than cancer it self. All these pro-business people seem to forget that your medical/cancer treatment is a business too. Chemo, radiation, and surgery therapies are big business and makes a lot of money, keeping people sick makes "consumers". I find it funny the hypocrisy.....

This was not Obama fault, frankly if you clould not see this happening in the mid 80's you are the one living in fantasy land. At some point the bills have to be paid. The problem with a majority of people by the time they woke up the damage was done. Now if you want to beat your drum that Obama caused all this who is the one not living in reality??? I plainly stated that about racked up 5 trillion but was handed a debt of 12 (which you failed to understand). Go ahead and keep your head under the sand and blame the next president, after all that is what you are doing now. You cannot stop this monster it was let out of the bag along time ago. Simple fact are the people to blame are the ones that voted in these guys in the first place. I have only voted in three election so honestly I take no part in what happened in the past. However, there are more than a few on this forum that moan and complain day after day yet they voted these heavy spending monster in. So it called blame those people! The first President that almost tripled the debt should have been enough but oh wait they let three other ones do right behind them. hypocrits
    America is awash in a debt it cannot possibly repay.
    The US government is not able to generate enough in taxes to run the government and service the interest on the debt.
    They have no way to pay the interest, pay down the principal on the debt, and fund on going government processes.
    The constant wars are being fought on more borrowed money....after all these cutbacks how can we afford some more adventures in the ME? obama will soon be asking congress for more money to fund this nonsense. Watch and see.
    When you are borrowing just to pay interest, and fund current operations you are in essence bankrupt.

    Our government can't even print more money. They have to borrow it from the Federal Reserve system.

    The more money the Fed prints out of thin air the less the money in circulation is worth.
    This process steals the money that bond holders lent to them, and destroys the value of the savings of their citizens.

    And what exactly are your qualifications to make such a claim?

    Just like Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, and Bush 2, yet you want to scream and yell about Obama! So what is your real problem because I fail to see it. You seem to have no problem with least 3 president spending money is it okay as long as they have an R behind their name?? When any Republican starts talking about out of control debt and spending I generally start laughing and pointing my finger at them, they remind me of the monkeys at the zoo! Fun to watch play around and throw s**t everywhere, but how can you take them seriously. They have never once had President cut a budget in the last 30 years!


    Now they are upset with a group of workers wanting to be paid so they can cover their living expenses and have a little savings. Wow and they call themslves Americans.

    I note you have yet to deal with the fact that BHO is the No.1 national debt builder.

    No Republican Presidents are. Again what is your real problem. You want to blame Obama for everything, like I said blind eye to the idiots Republicans elected.

    I have no party allegiance. Apparently you do. I follow the data. BHO has added more to the national debt than any other POTUS. There really is no debate.

    No one is screaming and yelling. Settle down. Pointing to others and saying "they did it too" does not excuse misbehavior.
    I'm sure just a couple of years ago when you were a little girl and you wanted to do something and your parents told you "no" and you said but EVERYONE is doing it..your parents said something like "if everybody jumped off a bridge would you do it too?"

    Ok..I'll say it again;

    America is awash in a debt it cannot possibly repay.
    The US government is not able to generate enough in taxes to run the government and service the interest on the debt.
    They have no way to pay the interest, pay down the principal on the debt, and fund on going government processes.

    Just keep reading it until you can grasp the point..I even left out the obama reference just for you so you could settle down and think clearly.

    You seem to be fixated on discrediting someone else while ignoring the present. Using the past misdeeds to justify present misdeeds is an immature evasion only a child would think is effective

    Hyperpartisan jargon and meaningless doubletalk.

    As you get older and have more real life experience you'll see why skilled people deserve more money than unskilled.
    There are reasons that cadillacs cost more than kias.

    Greetings, P. Kersey.

    We have been debating the pros and cons of raising the minimum wage by a little under $2.00 for a long time. The McDonald's employees in NYC want to double their minimum wage to $15.00 an hour! How many of us can ask our employer to double our hourly wage without looking like we're crazy? I realize it costs a lot to live in NYC, but c'mon! It's unreasonable. I never thought I'd live to see the day when a person couldn't afford to eat at a McDonalds! It will be interesting to see what happens next!
