    So now the poster who accused liberals of not knowing the difference between a public worker and a private one is arguing that there's no difference.

    Nope not at all....if you recall I said for the left the line between the two had become blurred. Hybrids like this government contractor do just that! The more the government is allowed to infringe into the private sector such as health care, the more hybrids are created. Cheers!

    You are probably right.

    Private companies that do contract work for the govt are private companies. There is nothing blurry about it aside from the thinking of the right wingers

    The revisionist version is the Coulter version.

    Well those holding degrees in economics and marketing would beg to differ with you. They find the lines very blurry. But I'm sure you know more than they do.

    It's been going on for decades and is getting increasingly worse. Here's a very recent example...... On April 5, 2012, U.S. President Barack Obama signed the Jump-start Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act into law. Among its many provisions, the JOBS Act "blurs the line" by allowing public companies to act like private companies for many financial-reporting purposes.

    Bottom line by blurring the lines between the private and public sector is by design an attack on capitalism.

    Why would Obama fire an actress from Hannitys show?

Before then she did her job by answering the questions that Hannity put to her about Obamacare. Like she was suppose to. In the answering service business you answer questions and take messages. In this case since it was apparently dedicated answering questions about Obamacare. So no messages more than likely. Just answering from a script. For an answering service, be it a hotline or not you do what you are suppose to regardless of who calls. In this case answer questions about Obamacare. If I attempted pass Hannity along to my HR department or my boss I would have been fired for not doing my job. How do I know this? I 1: Work in an answering service business and 2: I actually do answer questions regarding the health care exchange.
    Your answering service is not the same as her answering service. I assure you I also answer questions about healthcare, including the exchange, and if anyone in the frontlines didn't transfer someone from the media, give out a special number, or read a script, then they would have been fired.

    This woman deserved to be fired and I'm glad she was.
