You make up false accusations about Obama and try to pretend HE is doing something new, I WILL bring up the republicans and Bush. This government has three branches and Obama's branch does not control the money.Try not to respond within my quotations, Muddy Creek.
And if they price their own consumers out of the insurance pool, that's called an insurance death spiral, and the companies fold. That's a GOOD thing ultimately, because we don't want failed business models lingering on and on as people get poorer and poorer. The mandate chains us to the rails of the sinking ship.
Price their own consumers out of the insurance pool....hhhmmmm...how would that work, anyway? Examples of this happening.
Non sequitur. There is nothing necessarily relating these two things. We can expand/extend food stamps or we can end/cut back on them independently of what's going on in the labor markets. But that's not even the point. The point is that Obama appoints Big Ag / biotechnology insiders to key posts within his administration and regulatory agencies. The foxes guard the henhouses in Obama's administration. THAT is the point. Don't move the goalposts. Biotech executives do not help the middle classes, and food stamps don't either. The middle class pays for all that ****.
The ONLY reason for the increase in food stamps is people qualifying. Do you know what this program does?
HHHmmmm..Bush appointed Monsanto to head the FDA, Paulsen, the ex-CEO of Goldman/Sanchs to be his "Treasury Secretary" A cola mine owner to see after the safety regulations of mines...this has been going on for decades.
We're not talking about them. Stop moving the goalposts.
We are talking about them. YOu accuse Obama of doing what Bush did. You best believe I get to show where you are showing partisan hack points.
Who the **** was talking about eliminating basic safety provisions in this thread? Who in this thread has advocated for zero regulations by government whatsoever?
In talking about your changing your stance on what you want from Obama. You are going in circles on the right and not making any sense to a great deal of your constituents.
It doesn't, except by subtracting money from somewhere else to give people something to do.
No, how about filling in those social programs the republicans are eliminating given the republicans are refusing to help create jobs? How about lowering the unemployment levels? Bush used them. He created the BIG Homeland Security to cover all the private sector jobs he was losing in this nation.
United States Department of Homeland Security - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is a cabinet department of the United States federal government, created in response to the September 11 attacks, and with the primary responsibilities of protecting the United States of America and U.S. Territories (including Protectorates)[vague] from and responding to terrorist attacks, man-made accidents, and natural disasters. Despite the Department of the Interior's name, DHS is the equivalent to the Interior ministries of other countries, not the Department of the Interior. In fiscal year 2011, DHS was allocated a budget of $98.8 billion and spent, net, $66.4 billion.
. . .
With more than 200,000 employees, DHS is the third largest Cabinet department, after the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. Homeland security policy is coordinated at the White House by the Homeland Security Council. Other agencies with significant homeland security responsibilities include the Departments of Health and Human Services, Justice, and Energy.
No, that is not why I criticize Obama. He doesn't need to do anything for the middle class. He needs to STOP doing so many favors for the rich and the poor and forcing the middle classes to pay for them.
How has he raised the taxes on the middle class? That's what the republicans platform reads. Middle class is assuming the costs of the tax cuts for the rich, which is whom the republicans support and held the budget hostage until Obama agreed to do it. It's not an Obama thing to remove monies from the budget to give to the rich. And why not care for the poor? They are the victims of the rich greedy corporations going out of this nation. And some are even incapable of taking care of themselves. YOu have a problem helping poor people but not rich?
You are impossible to debate with, NOT because you make any good points, but because you jump all over the place, bringing up past administrations and partisan irrelevancies about Republicans. My comments are about Obama and how his stated policies differ from the effects of his actual policies. You keep trying to move the target off of Obama, distract from what I'm saying, because you don't want to own up to the crony bull**** Obama is doing that so closely resembles the crony bull**** the Bush Admin. pulled on us.
