    Nope, just my opinion, interesting how it happens most of the time with you, ADK, and other proponents of Obama economic policies.

    Actually what you do is focus on the one mistake you perceive I made. I know that the House doesn't require a super majority to pass legislation. Now do you have anything more to add to the fact that Obama will create more debt in 3 years than Bush did in 8, or that Reagan doubled govt. revenue with his tax cuts, doubled GDP, created 20 million jobs?

    I just don't expect Obama to get us out of the mess GWB created overnight.
    Thank you. Obama inherited a mess and is dealing with it piece by piece with no help from half the country that is still just pouting from losing the election.

    They forget that Bush's presidency sucked so badly that the talking point from his bootlickers as he left office was "well, other than the deadliest terror attack on american soil ever, he kept us safe!"

    Back up your statements with actual facts, not media rhetoric. BEA.gov, bls.gov, and the U.S. Treasury sites paint a different picture. Suggest you go there then realize how legislation is created and passed in this country.

    Get over your Bush derangement syndrome. Bush didn't create the 1.6 trillion debt that will occur this year? Bush didn't raise the unemployment number to 15 million? Bush didn't take over GM and Chrysler nor bailout the unions.

    you can continue to buy the rhetoric and I doubt anything including the facts I present will change your mind. Some are just lost causes.

    LOL!

    yet, president pieface received the backing of ONLY EIGHTY PERCENT of his OWN CAUCUS on this radical restructuring of 1/6 of united states society

    how does pie-in-the-face intend to EXPAND medicare and medicaid, both already strained to breaking point, by THIRTY ONE MILLION new enrollees while simultaneously CUTTING their funding by HALF A TRILLION DOLLARS?

    an example of an IMPORTANT consideration...

    now, what were we arguing about, again?

    LOL!
    It's hilarious how you have no idea how wrong you are. Just lol'ing yourself to glee.

    Show me any source that claims 31 million new enrollees will join medicaid/medicare...

    Of course. The president is only responsible for what happens under his watch when he has a "D" after his name, right?

    When he has the same letter after his name as the party in control of Congress. Congress since January, 2007 has been under control of the Democrats who were more concerned about regaining the WH than they were preventing a recession. Now we are paying the consequences for that vote and it has nothing to do with GW Bush. This economy is Barack Obama's and the Democrat Congress

    And exactly what legislation did they pass to cause the recession?

    What should they have done over and beyond what they've already done to prevent it? More Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, since that worked out so well during his presidency?

    It is what they didn't do to stop the recession, financial reform as requested by Bush but he didn't have the 60 votes to get it passed in the Senate.

    Stop using the leftwing talking points regarding tax cuts. Everyone that pays taxes got a tax cut under Bush. Probably didn't affect you however since you are in the 47% that pay no federal income taxes.

    Tax cuts from JFK, Reagan, and Bush all increased Govt. revenue. Suggest you check it out, bea.gov.

    actually, you're right, he's only expanding m and m by 12 mil

    even tho everyone knows the overburdened entitlements are projected to start bleeding red in 2016

    Report Warns of Insolvency for Social Security, Medicare - washingtonpost.com

    he's put about 200B of unfunded demands on the states in the form of picking up all this added medicaid, which happens to be the ghetto of health care

    this is what has had the BLUE governors outraged since last summer

    Governors balk over what healthcare bill will cost states - The Boston Globe

    it is also the basis for this latest of the several legal challenges confronting the bill on the part of the gubs and their elected state assemblies

    States Sue Over Overhaul That Will Bust State Budgets (Update2) - Bloomberg.com

    so, let me ask you:

    HOW DO YOU EXPAND M AND M BY TWELVE MIL WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY CUTTING THEIR FUNDING BY HALF A T?

    ESPECIALLY WHEN, AS EVERYONE KNOWS, THEY'RE BOTH ALREADY UPSIDE DOWN IN THE NEAR FUTURE (2016)?

    AND BOTH ARE FACING MORE THAN THIRTY TRILLION DOLLARS OF UNFUNDED LIABILITIES IN THE OUT YEARS?

    Medicare: Past, Present and Future | Publications | National Center for Policy Analysis | NCPA

    DO YOU DO IT, AS OBAMA SUGGESTS (LOL!), BY ROOTING OUT WASTE, FRAUD AND ABUSE?

    Obama On Health Care Concerns - CBS News Video

    as for the rest, you're right---OBAMA'S JUST GONNA GO OUT AND MAKE EVERYONE BUY FOR THEMSELVES

    thanks! for the correction

    LOL!
