    look who's talking

    fact---doctors coast to coast are refusing to take on new medicare patients

    fact---democrat gubs bill richardson, christine gregoire, phil bredesen, jim ritter and brian schweitzer make their case unmistakably---their states simply cannot absorb the burden of 12 million new medicaid enrollees with no federal funding

    fact---the prez promises to cut the deficit in half in 4 years, in year 3 his own leadership fails to produce a budget

    why, it's all in the LINKS

    someone's not serious---LOL!

    It may be in the long run, but if your complaint is he hasn't done in tow years what he said he would do in four, and you try to hinder him in doing it, not sure you have a complaint, . . . yet.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    So why vote for people who clearly aren't trying to help you?



    Also, don't get all ad homenim with me. It just proves that you have nothing substantial to back up your position. Your counter argument is that I cannot have my own thoughts based on where I live (btw, been in DC for all of 3 months), and that a person in Boise is better left to the will of GM than of elected officials. Back up this claim. Why do you believe that Bank of America will go against its financial self interest and keep that Boise family in their home? The federal government is the only body with enough power to stop Bank of America from doing this.
    I have plenty to back up my statements including the Constitution of the United States and actual economic results posted at the Bureau of Economic Analysis and Bureau of Labor Statistics. Suggest you read the Constitution and then a good history and civics book. This country wasn't built on liberal principles where it is someone else's responsibility to bail you out for very poor choices an individual makes. the only ones hurt by private business are the ones that invest in private businesses that participate in unscrupulous activities, no such luck when you deal with the Federal Govt. Instead of worrying about what private business does you ought to be worrying more about how your tax dollars are being spent. Think that our Founders ever envisioned a 3.8 trillion dollar Federal Govt. and 14 trillion dollar debt?

    Yep, totally serious, why send more money to the Federal Govt. and taking it out of take home pay when the people need the money more than the govt. You seem to care how much money the govt. gets, then send them more of your own money over and above withholding. Let me know when you do that. then when you get a tax refund send it back.

    a couple questions for the serious, if there are any

    how do you expand medicare and medicaid by millions while simultaneously cutting their funding by half a tril?

    how do you expect governors bredesen and richardson to pay for all these new members with no federal backing?

    why are so many doctors refusing to take on new medicare patients?

    think, link and click SUBMIT

    LOL!

    By the way I was wrong in giving you the election results, the GOP captured 682 state legislative seats on Tuesday along with 65 House seats, truly historic by every standard.

    It may be insignificant in the long run, yes.

    Do you ever have an independent thought? Just asking . . . .

    OK. So? Medicare, Medicaid and Ss won't be done away with. Will you be angry at the GOP's socalistic tendencies?

    Seriously, you can cut other places, the military being a likely place. If you are really serious, you might look at how he proposed doing it and disect that. It would be a start.
