    Well, if an Illinois senator bears more responsibility for the federal budget than the president, than why is Woodward wasting his time covering what President Obama has to say about the budget? Shouldn't he be interviewing Roland Burris instead?
    I think anyone with two brain cells knows the answer to this.

    FAIR Blog Calvin Woodward
    In the piece, headlined "Fact Check: Obama Disowns Deficit He Helped Shape," Woodward takes issue with Obama's statement: "Number one, we inherited a $1.3 trillion deficit.... That wasn't me." Woodward's criticism: "It actually was him--and the other Democrats controlling Congress the previous two years--who shaped a budget so out of balance.... Congress controls the purse strings, not the president, and it was under Democratic control for Obama's last two years as Illinois senator."

    Well, if an Illinois senator bears more responsibility for the federal budget than the president, than why is Woodward wasting his time covering what President Obama has to say about the budget? Shouldn't he be interviewing Roland Burris instead?
    I think that's some of the worst logic I've ever encountered. Just....wow.

    You really need to engage brain before finger tips--I have never argued he wasn't.

    What do you think the inalienable right to life means? (let me guess....you think it just means a definition adopted by anti-abortion groups, right?)
    It means you have a right to live as you choose. It does not mean you have a right to expect me to pay for you living as you choose.

    It means you have the right to all the healthcare you can afford. It means you have no right to the healthcare you cannot afford.

    So why are you objecting to the public option again? Certainly more Americans will be able to afford it as it is projected to be 30-40% cheaper than current private rates.

    With a drop in service as well.

    Just ask some of your veteran friends about the VA.

    Welcome to government run medicine.

    I will say the VA has made some improvements over the years.

    If the only thing that is changing is the government not profiting, then how can it possibly be 30-40% cheaper?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    1) Link?
    2) Where do you think those savings are coming from? Have you completely ignored the discussion about new taxes?
