    It's getting reviews comparable to ordinary private insurance. And sorry to hear your state didn't take advantage of what was offered. It's weird, most conservatives states are on the Federal government dole more than the blue states, and yet they whiffed on health care. Call your congressman.

    And you are posting a line of baloney. Healthcare inflation is not going down. Healthcare spending may be however the cost of healthcare is not going down. It is continuing to rise. Your attempted spin is in fact another left wing lie told repeatedly in the hopes that people will believe it.

    I was responding directly to someone on your side who brought that up. Go after him for the redirect and gain some credibility back yourself.

    Yes, you didn't get everything you want out of the executive branch for the past 6 years, but to freak out like he's Stalin, that's insane. Most things he would have wanted to do, he couldn't do because of the obstructionist Congress. So relax and grow up, buddy.
    You can stop the spin. Ofcourse he is no Stalin. However he is a tyrant. And he has broken the law.

    Well...careful now. There was quite a bit of support for President Washington's National University concept, including Benjamin Rush and James Madison. A twin consequence was also with the military academy, which was eventually created under Jefferson.

    No it did not. you are referring to making red lining illegal. That did nothing to negatively effect the housing market. And that article completely debunks the rest of your nonsense here. Nice try.

    US Health Care Inflation Rate
    Health-care inflation heating back up - Health Exchange - MarketWatch
    Health-care inflation has hit a low point and is poised to start rising again, but it’s unclear whether annual medical cost hikes are heading back to the double-digit increases of years past.
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/defa...embargo_v2.pdf
    Health care spending growth is the lowest on record. According to the most recent
    projections, real per capita health care spending has grown at an estimated average
    annual rate of just 1.3 percent over the three years since 2010. This is the lowest rate on
    record for any three-year period and less than one-third the long-term historical
    average stretching back to 1965.
    • Health care price inflation is at its lowest rate in 50 years. Recent years have also seen
    exceptionally slow growth in the growth of prices in the health care sector, in addition
    to total spending. Measured using personal consumption expenditure price indices,
    health care inflation is currently running at just 1 percent on a year-over-year basis, the
    lowest level since January 1962. (Health care inflation measured using the medical CPI
    is at levels not seen since September 1972.)
    • Recent slow growth in health care spending has substantially improved the long-term
    Federal budget outlook. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has reduced its
    projections of future Medicare and Medicaid spending in 2020 by $147 billion (0.6
    percent of GDP) since August 2010. This represents about a 10 percent reduction in
    projected spending on these programs. These revisions primarily reflect the recent slow
    growth in health care spending
    Health care premiums grow at lowest rate decade: Analysis.
    Health insurance premiums at large employers rose an average 3.3 percent this year—the lowest rate in a decade—but are expected to increase much more next year, according to an analysis released Thursday.

    It also found that though premium inflation had slowed significantly, the average cost to employees for out-of-pocket expenses spiked by nearly 13 percent, continuing a trend that has seen employees' share of total health-care costs jump 150 percent since 2004.

    It certainly did have a negative effect on the housing market. It is ignorant to suggest otherwise.
