Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

With regard to the immigration provisions in the cromnibus. I'll state it again. The president made a promise and when he had the house and the senate he did NOTHING.

The only holdup with the TEA party is border security. Why won't the president move on that to get a bill? What he and the senate offer is pitiful. Don't blame the GOP for the dems not wanting to do their job.

Here's my point jaxspp, whether you like the ACA or not.

The administration knowingly misled the American people in order to get the thing passed. A major piece of social legislation was crafted based upon bogus assumptions and "tortured" language on a COMPLETELY partisan line.

The $700+ billion stimulus had very little effect on the economy. There were no shovel ready jobs.

Banking regulations completely ignored "too big to fail" and focused on derivatives.

Job growth has been steady but even that has an *. The workforce has collapsed to a 30+ year low. Wages and household incomes have fallen.

U.S. corporations are sitting on trillions in cash just waiting to see what happens.

In short, at the outset, the administration focused on healthcare instead of the middle class and the economy and it backfired. They had the House, Senate and the Oval office and they moved on the crown jewel of the progressive agenda. Wrong policy at the time.

We were sold a bill of goods based upon fictional analysis and deception.

So let's discuss the major hurdle to the ACA. President Obama. He has delayed and deferred major portions of the law. He carved out union plans from paying the Cadillac tax. He delayed the employer mandate for purely political reasons. That has just started to take effect and, let me tell you, it's a mess. You, my friend haven't even seen the beginning of the cost to the economy from that one. Once we get passed that sword of Damocles the uncertainty should subside and things SHOULD get better.

Be thankful that there are some bright spots in the economy DESPITE this administrations policies.

Let's see, my sources.

Jonathan Gruber. President Obama. Sec. Sibelius, every knuckle head in congress that stood in front of the American people and claimed "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor".

Every genius that stood in front of the American people and claimed that this law would insure the 30+ million uninsured. That number is now 41 million.

Every putz that claimed an average household savings of $2500.00.

Every person who made the claim that the ACA would reduce the deficit by $100 billion over 10 years when, in fact, CBO has revised that to a $100 billion increase.

I believe everything the Russian government says.... Unlikely.

Of course they say they are hurting, what would you expect them to say? "Is that all you got.."?

41 million people are not going on the medicaid rolls jaxspp. "Do your homework". Your charts cited show exactly that the premiss of the passing of the ACA were wrong, in fact deception.

Don't get upset, Fact-free, just read what I've given you and learn.

Because you are too lazy to look them up, Fact-Free, I'll do your homework: www(dot)washingtonpost(dot)com/world/europe/western-sanctions-for-ukraine-conflict-hurt-russian-economy-open-up-rifts/2014/10/10/4f9db2aa-4e45-11e4-8c24-487e92bc997b_story(dot)html

Fact-free, you come here with ill informed opinions with no sources to back them. Republicans knew there would be 41 million uninsured under the ACA because they blocked them by not expanding Medicaid, which, to give Snyder credit who said it was a no brainer. But once again, Fact Free read a bumper sticker, spouted it off here, never bothered to look it up.

Why don't you post some facts, Fact-Free, about the ACA that back up your claims? Or are you afraid to look them up? All mouth, no sources, a Siamese Twin to RS. Why don't you tell us how your business is doing under Obama. Scared to? I already know the truth, just say it, you coward. Of the 400 bills passed by the House, how many of them would have directly affected Americans? I know the answer, do you? And the congressional committee determined the data released on Benghazi was the data available at the time? Need a source? I'll give it to you, but it will bounce off your closed mind.

I can't go on, I'm getting too upset.

Jaxspp..... wow, wow.

Thank you Mr. President for having such a low opinion of the American people that you felt you had to lie to get your ACA passed.

Thanks for, during and election year, telling the American people that the Benghazi attack was caused by a video, not the terrorist organization you claimed was "on the run". You lied for weeks about that. Thanks for that.

So let's recap.

Thank you Mr. President for destroying the economic climate in this country with the ACA, a huge tax, during "the worst economic crisis in generations".

Thank you for policies that fostered such fear by corporate America that even with huge profits they won't invest in our nation.

Thank you for twisting arms in your democratic congress to pass Cap and Trade during said crisis and, when they said no, mandating the EPA to do it for you. Thanks for that....

I'm with the anti enhanced interrogation caucus but I'm not sure that the methods used by U.S. are torture. I've been subjected to many of them during escape and evasion exercises. My uncle was tortured by the Japanese in the Philippines in 1942. I want to make sure we understand the differences before we throw people under the bus.

Lie upon lie upon lie.

This administration has set the progressive cause back 30 years.

By the way, 41 MILLION Americans are uninsured under the ACA. Who could have imagined that.... Oh yes, THE REPUBLICANS.

Yep, 400+ bills passed out of the House. That's "not governing".

How many budgets have the democrats passed? Talk about not governing.

You and your democratic friends have ABSOLUTELY NO CREDIBILITY ON ANYTHING..... PERIOD!!!!

How many years into the "RECOVERY"?

We needed 300K a month just to recover the workforce level. Let's let jaxspp describe the President's policy that made that happen. (How about despite his policies...)

How low can you set the bar jaxspp?

Russia's economy is getting hammered by low oil prices, Obama's "sanctions" are a joke.

Are you paying attention at all??

Posted 10 days ago.

Bush/Cheney made America a nation of torturers, the results of such torture provided no usable intelligence. Yet Republicans are gleefully supporting torture. Sick, sick, sick.
